I'm in Milan right now and just came back from dmagazine outlet. They have this suede leather jacket from an unknown Italian brand called dacute on sale for 198 euros (originally 616 euros). Anyone familar with this brand? i'm no expert but the leather seems like good quality and it fits me well.
Last time I talked to Sweetu (May-ish?) he said he didn't buy from anybody this fall/winter season. He is pretty much doing his own house label but I think that some of the pieces are in collaboration with some of the brands he used to stock (I saw Arpenteur and Death to Tennis tags were in some of the store's FB pictures). Some of his older sale stock will probably be on racks in the back. I always make it a point to at least stop by when I'm in the area because I like the atmosphere and Sweetu is a cool guy. The in house stuff will be available in the beginning of October if I remember right.
So I take it sweetu is the owner?
I've never been, I don't even really know how I know about it. They just have carried a brand I liked or something, but anyway. I follow them on IG and stuff and they post a lot of gear that looks pretty good. Nothing out of the ordinary but super clean basics. Any idea if they will bring the online shop back?
kopped a grail shirt off ebay but it's got some of those yellowish stains in a few (white) spots. anyone have a good way of getting rid of these?
If it's a white shirt, you can mix baking soda and hydrogen peroxide together until you get a paste, and then scrub that stuff on with a toothbrush. You can also use OxiClean -- either by mixing it into a paste with water (like the hydro peroxide and baking soda), or by mixing it with more water and letting it soak with your shirt in a bucket.
If your shirt is colored, you'll obviously want to test this carefully in an inconspicuous place. Underside of the hem or cuff or something.
With both solutions, you should let the solution sit for a few hours. And when you're done, wash on the highest temperature allowable.
Personally, I mix OxiClean with lots of water, and just let things soak overnight before washing. Usually does the trick
Need some more "anti fit" pants in a winter weight (looking for wool/tweed etc).
I've bern wearing Dana Lee stock chinos and W+H Tokyo chino a lot, but they are all relatively lightweight cotton. Any body got any leads or brands I might check into? Just loose thigh, longer rise and a real aggressive taper
I know people ask a lot for pants that will fit their gargantuan thigh, I'm just looking for non-slim pants with a taper and with more substantial fabric for the winter months.
Nonnative? EG don't seem to have much of a taper, or is that not true? Found some nice Lemaire but they a bit more than I'm looking to spend.
Been looking at almost exactly the same thing, SP has a schneider trouser, zam barrett minimalist jeans, different aesthetic but roughly same fit. I don't think EG has anything but I'm not looking for cargos.
