I know a few of you guys have been asking when we were restocking the popover. Well, the time has arrived!
I think you all know about my love for this shirt. The perfect shirt, in my humble opinion.
I haven't even tried it on yet, but I got it with the neck modified down to 14.5 so I should be able to wear it with a tie. Having said that though, the biggest benefit to this collar that I can see so far is that you get a club collar that can be worn sans tie with the collar undone without having the collar flap out and look like floppy dog ears.
The blue pinpoint is really nice fabric too. Will assess sleeve length and shrinkage once it's gone through a wash, but juts based on the appearance and hand of the fabric itself it ought to work with a suit & tie while still also working casually, unlike the beefier normal oxfords that IMO are really pushing it when worn with a tie -- I did just that yesterday and I've more or less concluded it just doesn't work (east coasters will likely disagree and/or foam at the mouth upon reading this). Still love those for casual wear though, of course.
Got a couple of crucial restocks of trousers and Luchino polos today as well!
For the Luchino, an XS actually corresponds very well to a small Epaulet woven shirt. The size chart has been adjusted to show the correct scale.
Was mentioned in the Alden thread recently, but the level of photography on the site is stunning. TSM has numerous models in brown calfskin but I'm not attracted to any of them because their pics don't do justice at all - which is a completely opposite case with the Taunton captoe boot. Looks brilliant.
I do consider selling my kidney for the "space" indy boot though...
