They list the sizes and the price. But I'd like to see how the Augusto looks.

 

Is it as sheer as the Shay?

 

 

The 48 Burgundy FJ is maybe a hair big but great so I'm guessing I'd be a 48 in the Augusto.

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

And the Mr.Porter editorial about you was so awesome. If I lived in colder climes I'd a pounced on that Peacoat. It's fantastic.

The fabric isn't even remotely sheer, its just an open weave like fresco so when you hold it up to the light it passes through. I would take your normal sportcoat size. As the majority of my wardrobe has gotten more casual, the Augusto is all wear. Its not a jacket for ties, but for tees, polos, henelys, etc. Its a slightly more refined top layer option for any outfit that you might wear a field jacket or bomber with.

Thanks for the kind words about the Mr. Porter piece. I'm really happy that we shot a lot of it in NJ. There will be a lot more photos from the shoot on backyardbill.com soon.

That really looks awesome for a casual throw on deal. I'll guess it doesn't come in long?

nope - but at 6'3" and change I wear a regular. Again, this is not a jacket to be worn with a tie, trousers, etc so the traditional rules about length don't really apply. It should be thought about like a piece of outerwear.

Thanks. It's always handy when the designer is built like me icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

It really does.

 

I just recently bought a similarly colored Navy Tonal Seersucker jacket(suit) so I'm not sure if this Augusto would be a bit redundant.

 

Gotta think.

Only thing I'll say here as that the yarn here is dyed with natural indigo so it is going to fade and take on your own unique wear patterns like raw denim.

I hope its not going to leave indigo stains everywhere like raw denim does. I love raw denim but that is the one thing I am wary of.

Summer's over but couldn't resist, so I just grabbed the Dickie shirt in Ischia print from that eBay dude in Napoli.

 

And since I had to pay shipping anyway, convinced myself I also needed the silk hopsack Ciro jacket. Will be my first Ciro cut, so excited to try that on!

I was thinking the same.

 

Is the Augusto from AW16 lookbook? The model with the blue and black striped button down shirt?

All natural indigo crocks a bit but it washes off very easily. Further, this tends to be more of a problem with pants (as people sit on things) but its a jacket so I wouldn't think it will be rubbing up against too much. I wear indigo clothing basically every day and often with white and have had no persisting issues. The worst thats ever happened is that an indigo jacket has made the beltloops on white trousers slightly blue but one trip to the wash and the color was gone.
