I have a pair of desert duck canvas chinos from Epaulet and my experience has been that it's a shade that ought to go with everything but in practice is tough to wear, at least in my wardrobe.
Sure - the ones I'm thinking of specifically are by Corneliani, Caruso, and Suitsupply (the Napoli - the Lazio and Hudson, off the top of me head, fit me OTR).To be clear, I think I'm going to be perfectly happy with the altered jacket; I'm just saying that the chest was fuller than I'd prefer for a 38R, especially with such soft and close-fitting shoulders.
I don't have any previous Benjamin jackets to compare, but I would say that I found my new Bella Spalla to be much fuller in the chest than I expected from a 38R, to the point where it felt closer to a 40R. The fit in the shoulders is spot-on, though, so I don't think I could size down to a 36R. In fact the side seam alteration that my tailor is currently doing is actually at the limit of what he says he can do without having to do work on the armholes. I typically have...
I think interesting, textured/colored leathers and suede are the way to go with a PTB/derby. Even with a sleek last, I probably wouldn't go for a more conservative leather in that design because except to a very careful observer it won't distinguish itself from your crappy $100 mall "dress shoes" that most guys wear. For a brown/black/oxblood blucher, I need a little bit more going on - wingtip, captoe, split/moc toe, etc.
I received my Bella Spalla pre-order yesterday. It needs some tailoring so I'll refrain from posting pics for now but I'm thrilled with the quality.
I just got a pair of the tortoise sunglasses yesterday and they are an absolute steal. Stylish and very, very high quality.
I find it interesting that many analysts dismissed the new tire rules when they were first announced. The argument, as I recall, was that the optimal choices would be quickly apparent to the teams; they'd likely converge to roughly the same strategy and the variability intended by the expanded tire choices wouldn't meaningfully affect the outcomes on Sunday. In fact, that hasn't been the case at all.
Seems to me that Lewis struggles with the new start procedure but has otherwise been in good form. I'm reluctant to go much further than that in constructing a narrative. I'd of course like Nico to beat him this year, though.
For the record, over the years I've had a couple shirts out of ~20 that were slightly off in a measurement or two - in particular, one shirt was about half an inch big in the torso and another was slightly big in the collar - but there's been no discernible "order creep" pattern and in both cases the variances were within my tolerances. I supply complete measurements for each shirt, but I do reference previous order numbers in the notes in order to specify the collar and...
I have a pair of chinos in Brisbane Moss canvas and it's great. Soft but rugged. It feels much nicer than your typical cheapo duck canvas that #menswear brands use (not that I don't like that stuff too) while maintaining some of the same properties.
