Description says that the rise is similar to the Rivet, is it similar to the Old or New Rivets?
Ah, sounds slightly different than what I was referring to, which is a full shoulder reconstruction. In any case! The next time I'm in London I'll PM you in case I need anything done. That's still not a bad price for shortening from the shoulders, which is a complex operation and often a pricey one.
For all I know that is what they were doing, I would double check with them, happy to give you the name of the place so you can call and ask!
I think this hoodie needs to be called out for flying under the radar despite being exceptional and unique:
This thing is basically the perfect layering piece. It's extremely comfortable and you don't overheat at all due to the mesh in the back. I stopped into the Brooklyn store today and wasn't even in the market for a new hoodie, but this guy blew me away. Highly recommended, especially for travel.
Honestly, 13oz is probably not ideal for winter in the north east, but neither is any denim. That said, I wore 12-13oz denim last winter and it did the job provided (a) I wasn't spending much time outside - think walking to and from heated places, and (b) it wasn't too windy. It's the winter wind that is denim's real enemy in my experience. My 18oz denim really doesn't feel any warmer in the winter wind than my 12oz.
Anyone else feel like the donegal overshirt is just too pricey? I was pretty excited about getting one, but that price is more in the full-blown jacket or shoe range. Just hard to justify when I'm not exactly in need of fall gear anyway. Mike, hopefully this is seen as helpful feedback and not complaining. It's a great looking piece, but I'd rather keep the powder dry for a field jacket or runners.
