Nice. I work about 10 blocks from Prince. Will def check it out.

Just FYI, the shop isn't open now. I think the start date is August 22nd, but can't remember offhand. Certainly by Sept 1st.

I realize they market "unpadded" and "unstructured" shoulders, but that seems pretty narrow, and I'm unsure I should size up to a 44, given that the rest of the measurements (length and waist) increase considerably. Any input would be appreciated.


I've actually found that their Belvest-made jackets fit quite loose. The shoulders don't feel narrow at all. They are completely unpadded, as you say, so there is a lot of space in there compared to the much more padded style they used to offer, made by Caruso. I found the Caruso ones were extremely narrow and tight by contrast. I still think that all of their jackets run a bit short, but that works with this kind of relaxed style that is designed to be thrown on with jeans as much as worn with a tie & flannels.

Whilst we're on the topic of flannels: they're now stocking what looks like great grey flannel trousers in mid-grey and charcoal for a reasonable price (£300).

So would it be safe to take a chance with that new blue donegal sport coat that came out. I normally take 42R US & 52EU.

Different SC, but the blue donegal is on fire - great choice. Would've definitely got that, but I'm trying to diversify a little haha. So many blue SC

Anybody have a phone number for the newly-opened NYC pop-up?
post #478 of 604

I stopped by yesterday during lunch and they weren't open yet. Still a bit of construction going on, so my guess is they won't open up for another week or so. Looks really nice, though!
