I'd be interested in something like the first fabric from Outlier, a majority cotton, cotton/nylon blend, preferably in khaki. For travel or bicycle commuting I've long enjoyed either military surplus khakis in a similar poly/cotton blend or nylon pants from Patagonia, Nau, or Pro Cam-Fis (a HK brand). Rohan in the UK also makes similar stuff.
Yes, this seemed like the point DW was making.Thanks btw, Bengalstripe and DW for your very helpful thoughts on the need for different lasts for different types of shoes.
Nice shirts MrChris and I like the ironing board fabric a lot. L to r, a blue lightweight, crinkly cotton from a local fabric store; heavy white hemp from Hemptraders; and red seersucker gingham by Zegna for Tom Ford through Edmorel. All collars and cuffs are unlined, which I've grown to prefer for casual shirts. The shorts are a 12 oz or so linen I got from Manila's big the fabric district, Kamuning.
Surprised people haven't jumped on the Ventile offer. Why you guys no love Ventile? As you've probably seen, I'm kind of a fabric nut , going to great lengths to get great stuff. Ventile is widely thought to be the most waterproof and durable, natural fibered fabric. Extra-long staple cotton, very tightly woven. I'm planning to get something like this jacket (original Polo Monza) made in the "black navy" fabric (warning, very old pic from my first yr on SF): It'll...
^Love the olive cords. Thanks B about the shirts. I love all four. The fabrics are all really special.
Phew! Finished reviewing a 700 page manuscript. Back to serious business -- the gifts of Bangalore. Here's a shot of the three shirts and shorts made for me while I was there. Too rainy to wear the past week, but it should be warm enough any day now: The shirts, l to r, are blue lightweight, crinkly cotton from a local fabric store; heavy white hemp from Hemptraders; and red seersucker gingham by Zegna for Tom Ford through Edmorel. The shorts are a 12 oz or so...
This is kind of germane to this thread, some things sent to me recently with a story behind them: Five or six years ago, Marcell Mrsan put me in touch with a woman who lived near me and was, at that time at least, his best student ever. I asked her to make me a pair of shell venetians. She had some difficulty with the pattern and it was not till about a year later when she did an apprenticeship under Perry Ercolino that the two of them were able to perfect the...
Ah, OK. Thanks. That navy jacket you posted recently seemed narrow and I assumed it was new for some reason.
Oops, it's Erik, Gavrilov. Pretty young but seems capable. Honest, passionate, hungry for learning, and really friendly. I like him a lot. We should visit him sometime. Ya, they do a little of everything: vintage, cutting edge, streetwear, CM... kind of like a blog we all know and love. UC, I had the same question. Still love your tumblr btw. Oh, and is your newer NSM stuff cut w/ a narrower shoulder?
OK guys, as usual, OT and/or insulting posts have and will be deleted. Let's all be on our best behavior.
