Given I live in a tropical climate, I'm considering purchasing a couple of the Giro Inglese jackets. Any opinions from anyone who's got them? Thanks
Trigger finger poised 😍
Honestly? Not really, no.I bought 5 pairs during the sale last year and think they're lightweight, smooth, with a silky hand and lovely drape.I will say that I've never ordered anything heavy weight or anything in cashmere etc. given that I live in a tropical climate, so I'm not sure if I'm really the right guy to compare them to heavier/more substantial fabrics.
I have been a recent beneficiary of this change and can confidently attest to its value.
Given the questions regarding timing of deliveries I felt I should at least share my most recent experience. Placed an order 15/05 for 3 pairs of trousers using previous measurements. I should note that I was out of town at the time and then sent an email regarding measurements/fit adjustments and seeking feedback on 16/06 and received an initial response with a few suggestions.

Considering a pair of ghurka waistband khaki trousers. Am I nuts to be thinking flat-front/no pleats? I just wanted a pair of khakis with a difference, not a perfect historically-correct replica, but haven't really seen any examples of this look without pleats.
Thought I'd add a little bit of feedback. Received a couple the Leno/giro inglese/cellulare type shirts today and am very pleased with them. I do own a couple from suit supply,and was about to grab a couple from luxire, but noticed a couple interesting colours on the Kamakura Japanese site. Shrinkage might take them close, because pre-wash the fit is close to perfect, so I may have to move the collar button, but the fabric is excellent and at once substantial and very...
