Cordings of piccadilly - Page 10

post #136 of 143
What about Cordings versus Oliver Brown in moleskin or needlecord jacket?

I prefer double vent and wider lapel, but I fear although Oliver Brown costs more that the quality is less than Cordings?

I wonder if moleskin is more beautiful than needlecord in a jacket?

You who dry clean cotton trousers are not as poor as I and live where dry cleaning must cost less. I recommend whatever brand - I know two I consider better than Cordings - always buy larger sizes because cotton trousers shrink when washed, far more than one thinks.

I read just recently Sunspel left Turkey. My undershirt or tshirt is Sunspel. I'm very happy with Sunspel tshirts which I buy on sale and a size larger. No problems with disintegration I always had with Smedley.

OT but I must concur that sunspel t-shirts are peerless. Still painful to pay that much for a t-shirt though.

tbrock about buying sunspel t-shirts: I kept searching and got all mine, all made in England crew neck, short-sleeves, L - none black, grey nor white - below thirty quid on sale online by checking everyday.

I got two negative judgments about moleskin as jacket cloth:
1. Loses shape
2. Heavy and stiff

I who dry clean cotton trousers follow the care instructions. Most of my cotton trousers, such as Brooks Bros Clark chinos, are machine-washable and OK to tumble dry with very little shrinkage. My Cordings cotton trousers are dry cleaned and, yeah, cost about $8 to do so. So be it.

Wow, eight bucks hard-earned to dry clean a pair of cotton trousers! If I were to dry clean my cotton clothing I hardly have money to buy more!

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cnut_the_Great, you're putting words in my mouth. Your post is assuming that I dry clean all my cotton clothing. I don't. I dry clean my Cordings cotton chinos, as instructed on the label and their website.
Dry cleaning one pair of cotton chinos in a rotation of about 8-9 will hardly break the bank. The beauty of personal choice is that if you don't like a particular feature of Cordings' trousers, you don't have to buy them. Buy some Dickies.
