A few different reasons I guess. I broke my hip earlier in the year (cracked femur) and I've spent most of the last six months on crutches or cane. I just had a second surgery before Christmas so more of the same to come. As a result of such little activity and somewhat poor diet I gained about 15 pounds too which has caused a lot of my clothes to fit poorly. I just haven't felt inspired like I used to (physically or mentally) to do any fit pics. Plus many days I haven't...
Care to elaborate on the blazer? I found it to be pretty much 'as advertised', this given I've owned several other wh blazers in the past. Though...the fabric is a bit delicate, light, and 'hairy', so may lack durability season after season.I've been pretty happy with the items I've received so far from fw'13, except the 'cashwool' light grey sweater which was beautiful out of the box but pilled really bad and lost its appeal pretty quickly. Maybe a dry cleaning will help
Very cool, thank you for sharing.
For sale is a SNS Herning Stark Cardigan, Black Melange (this is a charcoal color), Size Small. This is the old fit, so more true to size (in my opinion would fit a broad ranges of sizes, between a 34" and 37"/38" chest). This is the longer fit as well. If you're not familiar with the old fit vs the new I would suggest researching the SNS thread. Only worn a few times and folded in a drawer for a while - excellent condition. No pulls, tears, stains, odors, etc. PayPal...
I have a brown lamb A-2 in about ~37. This was sized for me at 5'8" 145 lbs and it's a pretty good fit. I am looking for something a little roomier though - because i've gained a few pounds plus I want to be able to layer stuff underneath it. Maybe looking for something made for someone 5'8" - 5"10" and 165-170 lbs or so. These are measurements (I will double check these against actuals): shoulders 16.8" chest (pit-to-pit) 20.7" midsection 19.1" waist 17.7" body length,...
I mentioned in my post "no washes" but yes, should clarify these are the 'once-washed' model (slim fit - 29x32). Also I have not worn these daily, more about 2-3 times a week. In PM someone had commented that they really haven't faded very much over the course of 1.5 years, and I'd agree - they're still pretty saturated in Indigo. I'm not really sure what my plan is for them in terms of when to wash, no immediate plans to do so, though.
My RRL's... ~1.5 years, no washes
Stuff seems to be trickling pretty slow into the US retailers (aside from Acrimony). Need Supply also has a few items. I went there in person last weekend to check some things out. All they had in stock in the store was the black/black varsity and the quilted vest. The Varsity is cool, whatever..but a steep price tag relative to two other similar/comparable options (ToJ and Unis) which are both priced below 5 bills. The black wool had a nice hand to it, but had that...
Length is 29.5
I have a new season (FW '13) ludlow sports coat in flannel and I was curious if anyone has any experience with letting a ludlow jacket out a very small amount. Just a tad tight when I have it buttoned up. The sales associate said it did have some extra fabric, and I could go to a good tailor and spend about ~$75 to have it professionally altered.. He almost sounded a little hesitant with the advice though. I know generally speaking it's easier to take in versus let out,...
