Lots of new flannel coming next week! Mostly classic patterns and colors, but expect some more unexpected things later in the season.White Heavy Oxford is going to be more similar to classic casual oxford styles. TM oxford is a bit finer, and will wear lighter. Love the fabric, but not the bulletproof oxford style you'll find from the classic American brands.We're pretty set on our 8cm tie width, so unfortunately I don't think we'll be doing anything at 3.5" or above....
Hey Marc,We cut to account for the shrinkage in fabrics, as 1-3% shrinkage is to be expected in most fabrics. There are a few styles we do additional shrinkage adjustment on, usually heavier casual styles, that we'll do more than a 3% adjustment on.Shouldn't be anything wrong with the fabric or the cleaner, you might just want to consider adding a bit more length and/or width to your fit assuming there will be a small amount of shrinkage.Cheers,Chris
Don't worry, we will have PLENTY of flannel this fall. Lots of solids and plaids under $100 and some really beautiful finds from our Japanese and Italian mills in the $125-$150 range...
Hey Guys, Hoping to get in more of a regular flow posting on Styleforum. We've been really focused on getting all of our product dialed in for fall and I couldn't be more excited about what we'll be releasing come Sept/Oct/Nov--stay tuned! But not to be forgotten are some great, more classic fabrics from the last few weeks. Today we launched some really beautiful mini grids from Thomas Mason. They're some of the nicest dress fabrics we carry and made up in a super smooth...
1. Camoshita Seersucker Capri Collar Shirt - Great relaxed vibe with summer texture. Feels right with swim trunks and the two-hole MOP's are an awesome little detail you don't see often these days. 2. EO TO TO Sunbathing Woman V-Neck - How'd this one slip by? Feels very folky and fun without being a novelty item--the sort of sweater a designer is going to find in 40 years and copy one for one. 3. ts(s) Navy Wave Print Scarf - Same sort of easy going artisinal vibe as...
Hi Guys-- Just launched our new collection of summer neckwear! Really excited about this one. We worked with our factory in Malnate, Italy on a series of great untipped linen ties and some self-tipped printed silks. We made sure to source some of the best raw goods--using only Italian linens and silks. You can check out the full collection on http://propercloth.com/italian-neckwear All of our linen ties are untipped with hand-rolled edges. We were really pleased with how...
Hey wonsmithr8--fabrics will shrink differently depending on their construction, but for the most part our fabrics shrink between 1-3%. This shrinkage mostly happens vertically.We cut to account for shrinkage in our shirts, and test all of the fabrics we buy before putting them on our site. We're working on a way to communicate shrinkage in particular fabrics more effectively, so your feedback on this sort of stuff is appreciated!Chris
Hi Guys-- We launched great new fabrics today that are limited edition factory find from Canclini. We've been trying to add some more fun, summer colors and think these will help fill that niche. You can see them all at http://propercloth.com/fabrics First up is a 140/1 x 80/1 aqua end-on-end. We love the unique color tone here as a way to mix up the standard blue shirt in warmer weather. The hand is super smooth and the end-on-end weave gives it that great texture we...
The Soft Milano collar will have the highest collar band, but if you're looking for a crisp, fused collar then it'd be the President Spread collar.Chris
Hi Ozzy,Since this is our first iteration, we wanted to start off with a small size range. We're hoping to expand sizing in future seasons, though.
