Granted, I have zero personal experience, but you can choose a Miyota movement for under $175. Once I have a little extra change (birthday time!), I'm seriously considering it.
Really excited to see the Brushed Back Superlight, but I'm a little curious how a light fabric with a brushed feel will wear in warm weather. The flannel fuzziness reminds me of something I'd wear on a cool day, not the opposite. I was wondering if anyone could speak to how this actually might feel when worn in summer months.
Granted, I know it's not possible for anyone to have worn these yet, but is there anything comparable from other brands?
Ok, so to divert from constant bitching and bitching about bitching...
Fabric Request: Lightweight normal denim for ~$80
The Italy Midnight Shadow was pretty awesome, but a little too unique for my tastes with the tonal stitch. And the Supima Summer looking amazing, but too rich for my blood. Lightweight inexpensive denim would be an insta-cop for me, and I'm sure some other dudes will agree.
We've seen the Blue 17 and Blue 14, what about a Blue 11?
I just picked up the OCBD's too, and have to echo the awesome fit and collar.
Something that I found to be an unexpected surprise -- MoP (or shell?) buttons? Definitely didn't expect that. Anyone have any experience putting these shirts in the dryer? Any risk of chipping or breaking the buttons?
Always been a fan, although I thought he joined before 2009?
Either way, I haven't checked out his fits in a long time, but I appreciated how he both works inside and outside the SF-approved looks. Something I should probably look back and comb through for inspiration.
Boom. Your last comment really hit the nail on the head.However, I still think they could easily have stock on hand for the Heavy Americans and some basic oxfords. They seem to pop up all the time anyway. It would solve the answer of antsy first time purchasers -- hook them on a still inexpensive basic and get them hyped on more exotic fabrics despite the wait time.
I was going to wait for a Contemporary, but I couldn't wait. (Plus I wasn't even 100% how the sizing would fit, anyway)
Picked up two 15.5, and one 16.0 in neck sizes and hoping for the best. I figure the return/exchange policy is so good, I could always try them on while waiting for the Contemporary to pop back up.
