+1, would really like to know the sizing and quality of the ma-1 TT as well as if it's shiny. Any other suggestions for a black, minimal, *no* sleeve pocket and preferably matte nylon bomber (hrmm I guess it's called a blouson or something and not an ma-1 without the pocket?). Something like the 3sixteen stadium jacket but not waxed cotton.
A little while back I asked about the lapel widths for the Napoli and iirc someone mentioned it being 3.5". It seems they've now slimmed down the lapel (which I actually prefer) to ~ 3 1/8". Can anyone with a new Napoli confirm? Here are some measurements that I received from customer service, might be helpful to someone else: Lapel widths: Napoli: 8 cm Lazio, Hudson: 9.5 cm Sienna, Havana, Mercer: 7.5 cm Copenhagen: 7 cm Jort, La Spalla: 8.5 cm Soho, Washington: 9...
Thanks. Is 3.5" considered a good width between modern and conservative? I was thinking more around 3".
Does anyone know the width of the lapels for the Lazio and Napoli? Also, are the Napoli armholes high and the sleeves slim? From what I've read, the Napoli seems like a conservative cut but the modeled pictures all look pretty modern and slim with a nicely tapered trouser.
These seem to come with really long inseams (34.5"). Does hemming affect the leg opening width much (say to 31-32") and how much shrinkage to account for, 1/2 inch? Anyone with Alpha Khakis can comment on the fit of the UB201? Just going by the measurements they seem very similar, or is the UB101 closer?
For the gap selvedge raws, is the USA version worth the price over the Japanese one? Is there much shrinkage in inseam and width after wash?
Thanks for the input Dbear & Cmap. How do the thicker down jackets perform? Cheap quality???? So they like the function but are embarrassed to be wearing it... lol.
Never seen the stuff in person so I'm guessing their regular nylon down jackets look like crap too? Really poor quality?
Would you say the outerwear (nylon/polyester down and ultra light down, not any of the wool blends) is worth it at Uniqlo given their relatively cheap price?
Pretty similar yes, but imo the officer chinos feel a bit tighter up top.
