Does Kemp and Hewitt sell directly to consumers or only "members of the trade"? I'm trying to find a place that sells italian jacketing fabrics direct (that don't go through an english merchant first!) thanks!
Re resurrecting and old thread Where do you think these are made (in context of hickey freeman, corneliani slovakia etc) What's the latest thinking on IDing polo PRL suits? Thanks!
Just received my black friday trousers. Dugdale Flannel Medium Grey Twill 14 Oz Dugdale Flannel Light Grey Twill 14 Oz For all intents and purposes these would be $400/ each at a regular retailer - and they still wouldn't fit as well! Couldn't be happier
Isaia sport coat / odd jacket / blazer size 52 42R Sorry it's sideways here
Anybody have a problem using the form on to get customer support? I tried a couple of times. thanks UPDATE - I used the e-mail instead of the form and everything is cool now
Would a lighter-than-navy blue suit or a sport coat be even better? What time of year are you wearing a brown suit?I like tan fresco in this case as a summer business suit alternative when the wrinkles of cotton/linen wouldn't work.
Update - washed the new box pleat version of the NY slim - softened up just fine
What was confusing to me is that kamakura say it is done with "non-fusable interlining" - but in any case I'll be anxious to see yours and/or others assessment of the stiffness in any case once more of the new models get out there.
You're missing the point. They changed it recently - they say so themselves."This shirt will have a center box pleat instead of back darts. The chest measurement will be approx. 1” (2 cm) larger than the standard Slim Fit. This shirt also has an improved collar roll."They've kept the old language too so maybe the new, stiffer-to-me collar is really unfused? I can't pull it apart into three layers like I can the old model."The single-needle stitching and beautiful Takase...
The older collar definitely feels different right out of the box. I bought one of the old models and a new model in the same order. The old model does not feel fused and if it is it is softer. Hopefully the new one will soften up. Still a great shirt
