What size jacket do you take, Chris? 34? Lengths added or no?

Hey Frank! Thanks. I don't get any feedback here or in real life. Well, I only post my pictures in this thread. I used to post in the WAYWT MC Casual thread, but there's a couple of smart mouths that ruined the fun for me. And in real life, I feel like if you just wear a sports coat, folks will automatically call you a smart dresser, haha.

Actually the Southwick MTO jackets and suits ship individually, whenever they're ready. You should be getting yours any day now. Can't wait to see that navy seersucker suit!

Also, is the only difference between the Weller and the Caine the ticket pocket? Thanks!

I hope this helps!

Yup, this is correct. Originally, we came up with the idea of using naming each model individually. Every jacket has the same fit, and the names "Caine," "Weller," and such were there to denote the different mix of pockets and liners. In a nutshell:

Caine, Weller, and Daltrey are all fully lined, natural shoulder. They basically fit the same.
The Weller is fully lined with breast welt / inset flap pockets. The Caine is 3/8 lined with a ticket pocket. The Daltrey is fully lined with a breast patch pocket and hip patch with flap pockets.
The Napoli is the same fit as the others but has a softer, Italian-styled unconstructed shoulder. The new Napoli's all have a breast welt and open patch hip pockets.

Navy Wool hopsack is far and away our best selling jacket fabric. I've got a full size run of Napoli jackets in this cloth to go online tomorrow-Friday. It's a great fabric for SF, and a nice casual-ish shape which can be worn business casual without looking too dressy.

Both are pretty similar. The Duck is heavier but breathes well due to the open weave. The hopsack is lighter, and will wear like a slightly more lightweight suit jacket.

The duck is definitely a casual piece though. If you want to really dress the jacket up, then the hopsack will definitely be more versatile.

Looking good!

And do you guys see his tie? Stay tuned for NYI's release of this product through his neckwear brand. We carried this fabric years ago, and it's one of the best ties that we ever produced. He's making it under his own label, and it's going to be awesome.

Thank you sir! Our first customer for the Wyatt! We'll have this online tomorrow.

I'm absolutely down for a Styleforum 35mm club! And Frank, I'm so glad that you asked this. I love recommending film cameras. For anyone out there who wants to jump in for a camera that's inexpensive, takes good pics, and isn't a pain in the ass, I'd recommend these (all available on Ebay). I'll keep it simple with one per category, and around a $100 price point.

As always with Ebay cameras, buy them from sellers with good feedback, who explicitly say that the camera is tested and working, and who offer a return policy.

Rangefinder


Olympus XA
This camera is nearly perfect. You can get a new one for under $100. Lens is brilliant and it has real rangefinder focusing and aperture priority settings. It's very compact and tough.

SLR


Nikon FG with 50/1.8 lens
Quality aperture priority manual focus SLR. It's a smaller size, so easy to carry around. Only buy it with a Nikon lens. If you want to spend more money, then find one with a 50/1.4.

Point and Shoot


Yashica T3

This is a hidden gem. Early 2000's photographers like Terry Richardson made the Yashica T4/T5 famous. This is a long-running series of compact cameras with really excellent Carl Zeiss lenses.

The T3 is a bit of an 80's ugly duckling, but it has an awesome f/2.8 lens, decently fast autofocus, and one in good condition goes for about $150.

Received my blue chambray shirt a few days ago. Washed and ironed it and got ready for work yesterday morning. Had to get my daughter dressed and stained the cuff with Vaseline during her diaper change. Tried
all the methods to remove the stain and it won't come out. What a let down frown.gif

You try baby powder?

Absolute worst case scenario, you have a nice new "short sleeve" chambray shirt. $15 chop job.

I did the rubbing alcohol and cold water method all yesterday and ran it through the wash twice. Unfortunately too late for baby powder now but my last effort is dry cleaner tonight.

Good point about the short sleeves though smile.gif

I'll have to pick up another if the dry cleaner is a bust - it's a great shirt.

Just purchased the 38 navy Hopsack. Fingers crossed it fits!

You should try one of these two things:

1. Soak in cold water and dish washing liquid. This will help break down the Petroleum based stain (detergent doesn't fight oil stains well). Then run it through a wash.

2. This is a lot more intensive, but Oxyclean will get out almost anything. I would try number one first.

And congrats on the Napoli! If you're wearing a medium or large in our shirts, there's a good chance it will work.

Many thanks - I'll try this tonight.

I wear a medium in your shirts and am 6'1" 165-170 so hopefully it will be great smile.gif

I have been debating whether to get the Napoli Navy sport coat. Currently, I don't have a navy sport coat and this would have been perfect if it has side vents. However, the thought of buying it kept coming back to me throughout yesterday. I am glad you gents got it and made the decision for me!!!

 

Waiting for the new batch of Napoli to go up now...

We should have those up by tomorrow at the latest. The new configuration has side vents and a breast welt, so that might be the ticket for you!

New LBM 1911 Jackets

We're rolling out a lot of new product today! First up are two new LBM 1911 jackets. This shape has a 3-roll-2 front, welt breast pocket, and open patches at the hips. These jackets have been selling really well for us, and they make a great casual spring/summer piece. Machine washable too. The fit is on the shorter side, so if you're much taller than 6', you'll want to carefully check the measurements if you take smaller than a Euro 52 / US 42.


L.B.M. 1911 3/2 Roll Blue Linen Sportcoat: $595


L.B.M. 1911 3/2 Roll Navy Cotton Sportcoat: $595

One of my favorite combos: leaf duck and natty CXL. The shirt is actually my first Epaulet shirt, tan/brown/navy tattersall, from almost a year ago.
