Someone buy this E. Zegna DB from me!: The suit is new, although I had the trousers cuffed (2" deep as per forum orthodoxy). Those could be easily removed, if you prefer plain bottoms. It's a 6x2 DB, mid-weight flannel. I think it's what's called a 'worsted flannel' but don't quote me on that. Fully lined and fully canvassed. Measurements as follows: Back of coat: 28" Shoulders: 17" Sleeves: 23" (no buttonholes cut, so easy to alter) Waist: 28-29" Inseam: 31" Cuff...
I find the Aeropress a bit fiddly for my tastes. It also only makes a reasonably small quantity of coffee. If Mrs fxh or whoever wants a cup, you have to start again. I am using a Chemex, in the larger size, which makes 2-3 cups, and is pretty foolproof.
Just quietly, does anyone want to buy a Zegna (mainline) grey flannel pinstripe DB? Would fit a slim 36 or maybe even a 34. Bought off the interwebs a few winters back, and I have given up on losing enough weight to fit it comfortably. PM me if you're interested, I can send some pics/measurements...
I had a feeling that Isetan would be later, and I suppose I can handle missing that madness: last time was just a little too chaotic for me.I see that Beams and UA are both in 'pre-sale' mode on their websites, so surely they can't be too far off? I picked up a couple of suits last time and I want another three or so, plus some sports coats, shirts, and of course SHOES...
Well it's only been a few months but I'm dying to come back to Tokyo! Looking very much like I'll be there on 1 July, in fact. I don't suppose anyone knows when Isetan, Hankyu, Beams etc go on sale this year? Kind regards, FP
Do you mean lined? An unlined three-fold would be barely there - a bit like a light scarf?
I'm yet to pull the trigger but looks like the 3-folds make a perfectly lovely knot, going by the pics here and elsewhere.
Thanks! Yeah, I landed there in the course of my search. Not 50oz I don't think, but lovely all the same and I am gonna grab a few!
I think it depends on the blazer and the jeans. Something with a bit of texture, like hopsack or tweed, and a raw denim with a bit of substance to it, goes together very nicely in my opinion. It tends to be my casual Friday go-to because a) it saves me ironing chinos and b) if I leave at 7am for the office and then head straight out and don't get home until 1 the next morning, a pair of jeans still looks fine.
Not gonna lie, saw this on TV this morning and unconsciously (maybe) wore same. Except APC dry denim not...whatever that is. And pocket square. But otherwise I'm basically the Duke of Cambridge right?
