Dude @tricky my H&M sweatshorts are a way of life.
Haha same here. I have so many of their shorts and 5$ tank tops. Perfect for summer days with the kids when your clothes take a beating.
It feels very soft and pleasant; I guess maybe the word is luxurious? Feels like a cheaper fashion brand's "cashmere blend wool". :D
There's a visible twill pattern that's pretty cool if you look closely too, but it didn't come out too well in the phone snaps.
@ReversoLover planning those guys in about a month or so
@acw816 they're already in the States now, just waiting for them to clear customs. We'll do a big newsletter once they come in.
@heldentenor great meeting you too and enjoy the shoes!
@cyclohexane really nice styling on that - thanks for posting the pics
Hey @Epaulet... Any idea of the next suede belt restock? Looking for tan specifically. Thanks!
@KPDarb we changed belt vendors in Portugal and are now making them at the same place as the Saffiano bags. We should get them in about a month - along with the suede and unfinished horse preorder belts.
@duff406 they're aging really nicely!
@tricky so fresh and so clean
@mr.invincible ah, we do sell them - we actually sell them a little bit too well. They've been out of stock for a few months. But we've got 36 pairs being delivered this week, so it won't be long now.
Agreed. In particular I'm interested in a few things: first, how an unlined jacket would feel against a T-shirt. Would the fabric be itchy against bare skin, or not?
And second, how well would it wear in the dog days of summer? It it more suited to transitional weather, or can it hang in July and August? I can't tell from the video because the weave seems very open but the fabric seems substantial. And the non-linen components of the linen blend would matter too, I think.
@Epaulet Thanks Mike!
Well, you wouldn't be the first guy to wear an unlined jacket with a t-shirt...
In all seriousness, I don't think that you'd have a problem at all. I've worn pure linen jackets with knits without a problem. your sleeves are lined, and that's often the most important point.
It appears that the exact fabric content is lost to the sands of time. It was a true end, and SW no longer has the detail info save the country of manufacture. To my hand it felt like a linen-wool blend - maybe with a touch of silk. I think that it's very wearable as a Spring to Early Fall piece. The weave gives off a tweed-ish vibe. Style-wise I wouldn't have a problem wearing this in November.
@CanadaCal thanks for all of the feedback!
@edubs01 around 4 weeks these days
Quick pic from the store on Saturday. Here's me and @NewYawker - the "King of the Gable Trouser"
On me: Secret new sportcoat, Individuaized Chambray Oxford, Taylor Military Twill Trouser, Shell Cordovan Sport Trainer
On him: Formosa jacket, Individualized shirt, Gable trouser, and an ass-kicking tie and pair of shoes where I'm not sure of the brand.
Ah yeah, you're right - that description is pretty vague.
It's a great fabric - and something that we offered before as an EFF option. It's a pique tropical wool, so it has texture like a hopsack but weight and hand like a Super 120s. The big story is that sunset color - it's a gorgeous reddish-tan that's a great match to a navy jacket. I feel like it would be up your alley.
