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.

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.
Yes different, but there's overlap imo. Have you met Eric, their tailor? Great, young guy. I've never been to AG either, but guys like Binge and Imatlas have very nice looking stuff from his shop. I think the stuff is actually made in a factory in LA.
There's also Wingtip. Plus Beckett and Robb, Spoon, Indochino, Andres Georges, and others. But yes, no dedicated, very high end, locally made bespoke afaik.
