Unfortunately can't do the project through Molloy, so I'm going through another mill. Testing some things out at the moment, but the summer silk/ linen blend and houndstooth Fresco will probably come first.
I have the linen silk mix done (sample is here). Think it came out really well. Waiting for the navy houndstooth Fresco sample to come to me in the next two or three weeks. First couple of samples weren't quite right in terms of pattern scale, but I think it should be right on this one.Hopefully will be able to post photos of both in a month.
Just my two cents, but a lot of the guys awkwardly crowbarring Liverano quarters into their non-Liverano suits are going to regret it in five years.
Hm, they're not short like those, but Anonymous Ism has some grey/ white ones this season.https://www.eastdane.com/slub-crew-sock-anonymous-ism/vp/v=1/1558130860.htm?folderID=20262&colorId=10192Here's a grey and black one, but with white and red stripes at the tophttp://needsupply.com/low-guage-high-crew.html?adpos=1o9&creative=50932502375&device=c&matchtype=&network=g&gclid=CjwKEAiA8K20BRDetNv3p6DNhXwSJADSwa3t8auffr6TXvLzn41jgTT9KB8jgeO5Sv9r6iGi5Lb_XRoCeSfw_wcBYou can...
Don't know if these have been discussed yet, but some cool photos of Viberg's repro of George Mallory's boots. More photos and story here: http://viberg.com/blogs/journal/82828356-the-mallory-boot (cc'ing @zissou since he might be interested)
Hm, when I think of Florsheim gunboats, I mostly think of the shell cordovan model.
Yea, mine is the navy quilted one.I'd say it's good for 35-55 F weather.
I actually decided to just keep it as is for the winter months.FWIW, I recently changed the lining on another jacket, but kept the quilted padding inside. Just changed the material from whatever it was before (I think it was some thin cotton) to a much thicker cotton.It definitely changed the fit, but it was somewhat marginal. Wouldn't say it's exactly like sizing up or down, since grading sizes kind of involves changing everything, but the body will obviously get roomier/...
I haven't been following the Falcon stuff, but a lot of the old ToJ stuff had inconstancies with the leather (I assume because they were buying whatever was left at jobbers).Vansons, on the other hand, have collars that stand off the neck. I think it's an issue of poor fit, but others disagreed. You can read the discussion we had here.http://www.styleforum.net/t/387175/vanson-styleforum-thurston-bros-slim-fit-japanese-double-rider-mto/1820_20#post_7911036If it were me, I...
FWIW, I feel like shell cordovan gunboats would fit better with your wardrobe. Both leathers would look good either way though.
