For the people who bought the Eototo polo - did you size up?
I have a first fitting with Kenjiro Suzuki waiting for me to come by Paris. Can't say much about his work yet - he and his wife are extremely nice, though, and communication has been excellent so far.
This shoe (and a lot of shoes) on this thread seem to match the dimensions of my actual feet far more closely than the shoes of European makers. I've always had terrible trouble finding shoes that fit me - from MTO to near-bespoke/bespoke like Vass, nothing's worked. Shoe leather bites into my big toe, the shoes never seem wide enough (though my feet aren't particularly wide), and my arches don't feel properly supported. I visited Dimitri Gomez last month, and he told...
Kenjiro Suzuki used a similar sort of fitting garment on me. However, he asked me to try it on only after he'd taken a very thorough set of measurements, using the garment to identify any balance/body issues I might have. The garment seemed to be one tool that was part of his full fitting process. In that way, it was different from how I thought MTM worked, where the tailor seems to start from a set pattern and then figure out where deviations have to be made.
Thank you for noticing and mentioning it - I updated the thread with the right pictures.
This is a Camoshita 76% linen/24" cotton 4x2 double breasted blazer, size 50. Unworn, tags still attached. The fabric is a linen/cotton textured hopsack. Beautiful MoP buttons. Partially lined in a patterned cotton/cupro fabric. It is, as I understand it, cut in the Liverano style - so, slightly extended shoulder, no front darts, diagonal side darts. Dual vents. Handwork throughout the jacket. The sleeves are unfinished - the extra MoP buttons to finish the...
This is a pair of Ovadia and Sons navy linen trousers with belt loops. They are unworn and unhemmed. 34" waist, 7.75" hem. Please let me know if you have any questions. $100 shipped.
This is a Needles 60% cotton/40% linen chambray pullover shirt. Beautiful detailing - french seams, buttons covered in the same fabric as the shirt, tucks across the back yoke (a bunch of small tucks instead of one box pleat or two side pleats). This shirt has been worn a number of times, but has no visible wear. 20.5" pit to pit 17" shoulder 25.5" arm 29" length $70 shipped in the US.
This is a pair of Needles sulfur dyed BDU string pants (ie cargos) in a faded olive/army green. The construction and detailing on these, like all Needles items, is pretty incredible. The dye also has an amazing depth to it. You can see the pants in this post: http://nepenthesny.tumblr.com/post/48126667431/in-detail-needles-sulfur-dye-jacket-and-pants. I bought these at the Nepenthes NY store. I wore them out of the house maybe twice at most. Measurements: 34" waist...
