(personally, always been a fan of grinze/spalla camicia and thankfully now that the hyped conversation about it is dying down, i hope it doesn't disappear, least of all from eidos)

Couple things. First, the primo was never really meant to be sold RTW as it only really fits tall, skinny guys. Second grinze is something that is nearly impossible to sell in RTW, particularly at a lower pricepoint.

We are now focusing on the following:

1. The things we like

2. The things we sell well

I personally think that the tenero is the best, most versatile and wearable expression of our canvassed tailoring. For myself, I only really wear the Augusto now as I tend to dress more casually and think its the easiest thing to throw on with a tee shirt and chinos. Greg sells the NMWA well and Marcus sells the Ciro and Tenero. Bloomingdales sells the Balthazar.

0.6 inch, or 1.5cm, is not "a small amount"... For example, the difference between a 75cm long jacket and 76.5cm can be quite obvious. Actually I think this is about the limit of how much you can shorten a jacket without throwing the balance off. I have seen this kind of alteration done with good result, if you have a good tailor

I just got the new "Matera" field jacket from MP3 and wow... the texture of the cotton is incredible. I feel stupid for asking this, but I'm afraid to take it out in the rain honestly; it has a hood, but will I ruin it? Would it be heretical to add storm cuffs when I shorten the sleeves? This 80 degree NY weather needs to end soon.

Please, please, please, beat the shit out of that thing. Wear it in the rain, the snow, the shower.

The fabric is a midnight Japanese cotton sateen that is an exact replica of the American cotton sateen that M-65s were originally made out of. It is super compact and basically bulletproof.

Please don't do this. I've never seen it work out well.

I have a NMWA suit and let out the seat. Not sure how to measure how much material was there before I let them out.

Perfect! One more question: was it made in 36 at all? I sized up to 38 to accomodate for sweaters, but I have to wonder.

I present the Matera vintage sateen field jacket.

- Hidden snaps at pockets and storm flap
- Vintage two way antique brass zipper with antique nickel pullers
- Oversized top/side entry cargo hip pockets
- Angled chest pockets with quilting at edges
- Rope dyed cotton waist cinch with leather pullers
- Hidden internal cellphone pocket
- Stowable hood in SELF fabric (I hate the lighter M-65 hood fabric)






Its hard to choose what outerwear style I like best this fall. The new raglan down parka is also epic.

- Japanese weather cloth at pockets, yoke, hood and cuffs.
- Exclusive Lanificio di Pray wool/silk boucle body
- Real mouton lined hood
- Goose down fill
- Lined in Canclini 100% linen flannel that has to be felt to believed
- Same zipper detail as Matera
- Oversized top/side entry cargo hip pockets

This is a very nice interpretation of the field jacket. I really like the fact that the pockets are a bit less prominent than on other models. Looks like a great option for those who bike to work, like me. I will check it out next time I go to Marcus.

Thanks. Its no easy thing to make one that is tough and wearable without being an exact copy of vintage military. There are things about it I plan on tweaking for next fall but, all in all, I think we did a pretty good job here.

Unionmade and Barney's will definitely both have as well. I believe Gentry and Meyvn might also.
