Oh yes, definitely. We have that fabric. I'll layer that in tomorrow.
Haha, you and me both. Keep your eyes out for our relaunch at the end of the October! They'll be all sorts of functional changes.
Loro Piana is considered one of the finest suppliers of fabrics - especially wools - in the world. They own their own mills and use really phenomenal yarn to make their cloth. This heavier weight flannel is used in overcoats, and despite the fact that it's 100% wool, it has a softer hand and a better loft than many cashmeres that you'll find. It's really exceptional. This charcoal piece has a great depth to it and would be absolutely brilliant with tweed trousers and pair of brogues or monks.
Yes, given how tight the supply of leather for this was, we decided to go with just the two sizes.
But cutting it is really easy to do. I can shoot a quick video, but you can unscrew the "cap" of the belt and take out the raw edge completely. If you have a sturdy pair of scissors, you can even do it yourself. But any cobbler could knock it out in a minute.
Thanks! The medium wale corduroys and the cavalry twills are probably the lightest of this bunch. And the Regiment twills.
I'd say that the Loro Piana charcoal is the most mature one of the bunch. Both the suede and the Navy melton are entirely appropriate for a younger guy. Suede bombers are too often a blousy and staid style, so I wanted to give this one a slim shape and a bit of attitude. Matt's a young and fairly punk rock guy, and it looks spot on with his jeans and oxford shirt.
Either one will be really wearable. The wool is going to be much warmer and easier to care for. The suede is going to age incredibly and it's something that you can wear now and then again in the early Spring. And good lord, it feels so freaking good. But which one really depends on which one is more appropriate for what you need.
Lots of them. Wide Wale cords are thick. And Chartreuse Heavyweight Tweed and Chessboard are REALLY thick and warm.
Not this season, but that's definitely on the list!
