I looked at the summer Mallory with this in mind and concluded there wasn't enough allowance of cloth to take the vent any further towards the shoulder. I guess things would be different in a lined jacket perhaps.
AFAICT they are made to fit short, like the 1930s sports jackets they were modelled after which allowed a lot of freedom of movement. That particular fit seems right in the shoulders so apart from the slightly long sleeves (still acceptable in a rtw/workwear piece imo) it probably fits how it was meant to.After acquiring a few NC pieces and hearing people discuss various fitting issues I've come to think that NC mostly fits how it is intended - e.g. my SS Mallory is very...
Good .. I thought, if she really meant it, that was a nasty burn she just gave you!Thanks for the pic - nice fit and the naval pants are looking good. I don't own any NC trousers, always thought they'd be too baggy for me but maybe not.
The retailers that carry them are mentioned in this thread .. End Clothing, Mandon Store, Inventory Stockroom .. er, can't think of any others.
End still carry a fair bit of their stuff but generally the start of the northern hemisphere summer isn't a good time to be looking, there will be an AW release at the usual time I guess. Assuming of course they are still in business by then, they seem to be constantly on the edge of closing up shop.
Thanks, I'd not seen those caps before .. I agree they are veering a bit too close to costume but they are fantastic in themselves.I think a few sizes have sold out but have a look at the jersey Mallory as well if you can. They were bagged somewhere up thread and I was prepared to not like them, but I have been wearing mine pretty much non-stop since I got it.
Yes, I tried it on briefly at Trunk a few weeks ago.
It's very fitted, which I liked. The material has a lot of surface interest but doesn't stand out too much from a short distance away, much like in the photo I guess. It feels a bit "stretchy" while you put it on but doesn't look odd once you're wearing it. As a very open weave I would guess it must be quite cool to wear.
From the name I assume it was intended to evoke the look of 1920s/1930s sportswear, fitted but...
^ Agreed, I personally don't think that way but I can certainly respect it (and it's nice to see a personal belief being upheld over profit sometimes).Let's not follow that thought to its logical conclusion.
