Reposting original description below. Last I checked there were 2 left (that was last week):

After months of battling with our suppliers, I'm happy to announce our Ajrak medallion cardigan has finally arrived. The knit jacquard pattern is based on tradtional Rajasthani indigo textiles that are block printed by hand in the Ajrak style. We spun together four different colors of cotton yarn (navy with black and cream with ecru) to give the pattern a suble depth of texture. You really need to see it up close to appreciate how beautiful it is. The garment is knit full but light and layers easily over a tee shirt or pajamas around the house.

Only 10 produced. Exclusively available at Martin Patrick 3.

@NickPollica Any insight in to whether the Cotton Shantung will fade if hand washed? Or on the other extreme, how it will take to over dyeing?

Just got my first Eidos piece. Unstructured 3 season Tenero. Was surprised to fit a 52.

Also tried on the Tipo which were better in my usual 40.

Still need to get buttons sewn on and will probably bring it in a touch at the waist.

I checked the M.P.3 site. Did not see the Ajrak.

Is it sold out?

Thanks.

Got to call. When I called last night there were two left on the floor. I got one of them.

Did you pick this up locally? If so, where?

Looking good, Tricky. I normally wear a 52r in most Eidos except the Tenero which I have to size up to 54.

MP3 doesn't ship to Europe, too bad.

I did. Burrows in oakville is running a sale. Seemed to have quite a bit of stock. I tried on a bunch of Eidos.

That's good to know. I know tagged sizes are subjective but I couldn't wrap my head around it at first smile.gif

I took delivery of mine too and thought I'd share some quick pics. @NickPollica - This thing is so great on so many levels. I'm glad you fought the good fight with your supplier/factory and got these made! Awesome work. PS - I'm ready to cook some eggs biggrin.gif

Thank you gentlemen for the inspiration.

 

Just ordered one from M.P. and am psyched.

 

There might be one more Ajrak left.......
