Just handled them yesterday in the store. The new short sleeves they just got in. They are noticeably, how to put this, crunchy to the touch - light, but rough. The salesman told me that they twist the fibers before weaving which results in a weave that wicks sweat really well so that the shirts wear very cool. He said there was a Japanese term for the processing of the fibers, but he didnt know the English term.In addition to noting the interesting fabric, the other thing...
Spex is correct that most of the basic stock fabrics start at $180 and I think that's how they advertised it for a while, but there are now about 5 or 6 basic fabrics that they offer in MTM for $130 per shirt iirc. They are noticeably less nice than the stock fabrics, but a good bet for a casual button down.
I think this has to do with a glitch in their back-end. I used to see this a lot when they were moving stuff to a final sale status. Also, I think some funky stuff happens for items that are really really old that dont even show up anymore except in these occasional clearance sales they have. At any rate, the shifting of items from one category to another in the regular store seems to produce these glitches in the dream boxes.

Hard to find any in depth discussion of rust, brown, brick colored stripes on chalk stripe flannels.Before anyone admonish me to use the search function, believe me I have and best I could find was this post of a picture of such a suit in Tie Your Tie's shop window (interesting to note that the suit appears blue, but poster claims it's actually...
Anybody ever get an item with a security tag still on it? Do I have to send it back to get it removed? Is it even Yoox's or did it somehow get missed when it was sold on from the original retailer? If it something that Yoox cant remove, can I use that as leverage to ask for an additional discount? Any experienced observations would be appreciated.
yes, front load washer (i do a gentle cycle that spins), cold water, hang dry, hand press.I occasionally use a touch of starch on the arms to make a crease.Not a pain, pretty similar to a cotton shirt.
Not sure what you mean.
Yeah, the linen breaks in to be really soft. Nice stuff.
Would guess that you can hit these figures more easily if1) you're shopping the design sectionand/or2) your account includes an acquisitive spouse (specifically, a female)
