I would also be interested in a jacket similar to the Boggi so popular here. I'm also curious at the confidence in making a product so different than a shirt, though. Not doubting, just curious. Seems like a large step.
Agreed. And I was amazed, Del Posto in NYC used to require a jacket, or at least strongly recommended it. Last time I was there they seated a guy with torn jeans and an untucked casual shirt... It's really frustrating how everything is becoming so casual.
You can very rarely go wrong by wearing a sport coat and dress shirt, no tie. That would fit in my interpretation of "smart", though based on that I'm guessing they just mean don't look like a bum.
Congrats on the kid on the way Kirby! I just entered mine last night online, unfortunately I don't have the pics on this computer to post here. Oh, and as to storing shoes in boxes I just don't have the room, plus I get a fair portion of my shoes second hand and they don't usually come with the original box.
I'm in the Boston area and have never heard of them... Also that deal seems geared towards the less knowledgeable consumer who is looking for an interview outfit or something, I'd be wary.
Agreed, I think listing the mill is one of the many ways you positively distinguish yourself from other competitors. I'm not sure I see the point behind labeling everything Luxire, as the customer knows they are buying from you and is trying to differentiate between your different fabrics.
I ordered the blue gingham fabric, using measurements from another MTM shirt I had made. I had a lot of specific requests, all of which were carried out perfectly. The shirt is now my favorite shirt, better in every way than my other MTM which was exactly triple the price. The buttons are fantastic MOP, especially for a shirt at this price point. I'm looking forward to ordering more shirts soon. I know it has been suggested/discussed before, but I'd like to add a word...
I like the color combo, plus the tail is seen so seldom it won't be glaringly obvious. Recent purchases for me include two Thomas Pink shirts on sale. Question for SF - does the dislike of Thomas Pink stem from its high price tag (yup), lack of history (kind of cheap to buy the name), or an actual belief the product is crap? The slim fit is perfect for me and their bold stripes are awesome and uncommon, perfect for a college student but not so great for business formal.
^agreed. Extremely skinny can look silly but extremely wide lapels always look ridiculous. But in general it really applies to the person's body type and proportions, as stated earlier.
I wear a vest casually somewhat often, but always with a buttoned shirt. I personally like it with the sleeves rolled up, reassures people you aren't trying to be overly formal.
