Shouldn't be long now . . .
Interesting. I've been in the store and at a glance it seemed very similar to the others but with nicer set dressing. The only other thing I knew about it is that Sartorialist used to gush about it and claimed that it was the only store in NY that mixed designers in it's windows and it had a great magazine - in other words it was notable for it's "style" as much as its offerings (which sounded like pretty down the fairway names: hickey, Brunello Cucinelli, Etro, etc).
You're right. My bad - I confused darts with pleats.Did they always do OCBDs with pleats? I'm pretty sure I have one with no box pleat.
I believe there were 2 black, shiny suits in EU 46 - casino/vegas look.There was one double breasted suit - beautiful - that a woman bought. From what I could tell she was buying an outfit for her man because I encountered her by the ties and pocket squares trying to puzzle out combos. Lucky guy whoever he is.Do you mean good selection of sportswear for size 36/46/small? Cause that was not my experience at all. The smallest pants were 32" waists and I couldnt find any...
Yes, definitely do it in Tokyo slims.
First sort by size. No real use to look at EVERY jacket size. Next sort by brand. I go through and just look at a few select brands at this point. Occasionally I'll take a punt on something that sounds interesting or piques my curiosity but at this point it's mainly just checking the brands I know. However, when you pull up a specific item, at the bottom of the page, Yoox gives you suggestions of other items to look at: there can sometimes be interesting things from brands...
If that's the case then you'd do well to step up with a 200 and 300 level shirt OTR. I own 300 shirts and also have MTM in 300 fabrics and I have handled the 200 line in the store. Both represent a "step above" in terms of quality. Specifically, in the case of the 300 line the step above is in both the quality of the shirting and the tighter stitching. The buttons might be a smidge nicer too, but would have to pull the shirt out of my closet to double check.Barba is nice....
I had superstar status, but I think I didnt do much buying for a while and they seem to have quietly dropped me.
Depends on what you define as a step above. The 300 series are next level in terms of the fabrics they use and the stitching is also quite a bit more refined. The price is about $100 more than the standard line at $180 a pop. Not sure if you consider that drastic.If you are in New York you could also do their MTM program and choose from plenty of high quality books of shirting (Canclini, Mason, their own fabrics, etc). I think price also starts at $180 per shirt.
I've noticed that my tailor opens up the sleave and resews it at an angle in order to recreate the fullness at the bicep/upper arm. It's an expensive alteration, but it seems like pretty precise surgery is involved.
