You're right, but it doesn't matter http://eric.ed.gov/?id=EJ622756
The tall shirts have a separate tag with the word "Tall" printed on it, right next to the size tag.
Got the #128 Royal Purple Flannel in the mail yesterday. It's VERY purple, and the red tones in their stock photos are much more muted in real life. It's a 5.0 oz flannel as opposed to the 4.0 oz of the #15 Gray Ember Flannel that I got awhile back. That's a 20% increase in weight, and it definitely feels more substantial. If I had to guess without seeing the numbers, I'd (wrongly) guess that it's 40-50% heavier than the Gray Ember. It's approaching the weight of an...
Yea, the shape has changed somewhat over time, but the angle of the photo tends to exaggerate the effect. From the everyday real-life view (looking straight down at your toes) they still look more or less indistinguishable from any other 1K.Peru is about the wildest place these boots have been, it's city life 99.9% of the time for them. They were my everyday work boots for about a year when I was in school and working as a valet full-time. That meant running on pavement...
My 1Ks went to Peru over the holidays. It's the rainy season, so they saw thunderstorms in the Amazon and plenty of rain at Machu Picchu too. Obenauf's LP kept my feet nice and dry, and the commando sole was great in the mud.
I've contacted twice in the past--once successfully (I got store credit), and once unsuccessfully (I'd already washed the shirt before realizing the fabric was not the same as the one I'd backed).The general tone of the correspondence was: we'll take just about anything back that hasn't been washed or worn. They didn't seem particularly concerned with any quality control or quality improvement initiatives, or feedback regarding the customer experience when things go...
My mistake! Will edit.Gotcha. It might work with a bowtie. You never know until you try! I can't compare to Mercer, but I can compare to Kamakura, LE Hyde Park, and Brooks Brothers oxfords.. The Gustin collar is significantly shorter and softer.
You can just half the chest. I actually made the measurements while the shirt was laying flat, and doubled them exactly as described in Gustin's fit guide:https://www.weargustin.com/fitguide#shirts
Eh, the collar is pretty short, which makes it difficult or impossible to wear all but the skinniest of ties. The 3rd button on the back of the collar means these shirts aren't designed to be worn with a tie, and will never really look quite right.The collars are also pretty light. This is nice when worn unbuttoned, but combined with the relatively lightweight fabrics, there's really not much of a collar roll at all.
