Holy shit, those navy lamb Balmains...
It def a fake. They didn't even get the spelling right. It says something like: Ermenegildo Zegna Doesn't sound like Temple of Jawnz to me.
Beautiful blue bengal stripe dress shirt by Luxire. Their quality of construction is top notch: no loose threads, secure buttons, pattern-matching, and probably some of the neatest hems and seams I've ever seen. http://luxire.com/collections/stripes/products/blue-bengal-stripes-100-2 Thick, creamy MOP buttons. Split-back yoke. Tall English collar. French placket. Side-seam gusset. 100s Two-ply super soft fabric. Comes with stainless steel collar stays. The size would be...
It by LuxireThanks! That's the nature of an unfused collar haha
I honestly don't really care about wait times as long as the quality is good like it is now. I've left a lot of tailors both online and B&M due to inconsistent quality.
Olive green looks good. If I didn't have the brown lamb, I think I'll go right ahead and get it, but like you said, it kinda does fulfill the same role, esp since they're both gonna be DRs.
Yeah, I have owned both lamb and calf before. I can attest to lamb being almost negligible in terms of shrinkage. Calf shrinkage seems like a little more. But honestly who cares? I'm not pedantic enough to calculate fractional inch loss in sleeve shrinkage pre and post wearing for a leather jacket. That's insanity.If it hits the wrists, it fits. I don't think Sid Vicious or Marlon Brando preemptively accounted for sleeve accordions or took a tape measure out to compare...
The fear of elbow creases bringing the sleeves up is really overstated and almost unfounded. I've heard the same rationale for MTM shirts and suits as well but have never experienced it myself. The amount of uptake is almost negligible, especially for drapey materials like lambskin and wool, as gravity will most certainly take care of those creases overnight. For crisp broadcloth, there is barely any shrinkage eventhough the elbow creases like hell. All my shirt cuffs peak...
My brown Hober grenadine is probably my favorite tie ever.
Interesting. I was actually thinking about getting the QDR in olive lamb but I already have an MDR in brown lamb and thought that olive might be too close to brown. Do you have a color accurate picture of your olive moto?
