٭٭٭ No Man Walks Alone - Official Affiliate Thread ٭٭٭ - Page 702post #10516 of 355148/6/14 at 5:38pmpost #10517 of 355148/7/14 at 6:34pmSo in the spirit of the recent Favorite Things competition, I thought it would be fun to pick your one favorite purchase. We have had one run of F/W and S/S, so what is your favorite thing over the past year? Only one purchase! So think hard!
For me, I am going to go with my blue linen pop-over. I absolutely love this shirt. I have worn it every single week since I got it. It is incredibly comfortable, it is different, and it makes me feel somewhat eye-talian. I know some are considered about the length (as shown in the photo below), but after the day is over, with crinkles, it really seizes up. You lose probably 3 inches in rumples. It is a great length. I could not recommend them enough!
To snag a quote from Voxy:
"I never felt ‘dressed’ in a coat-style shirt…always felt like my pecker was showing."
--Ashbel Wall (the last member of the Brooks family in Brooks Brothers management, speaking of shirts that button top to bottom, a.k.a., “coat style” versus the older popover, or “pullover,” style of shirt)

You know, it is hard to single out a single kop (I actually started with my Rota trew, and re-wrote), but I figure this would be helpful for people on the fence. You are a top NMWA purchaser, have multiple Formosas, Ingleses, etc... And you put the Valve jacket up there! That is some high, high, high praise.Quote:
Interesting choice! I have slept on the Cantarelli jackets. I can't tell you how many times I have had that one in my cart, and removed it.post #10522 of 355148/7/14 at 8:08pmpost #10523 of 355148/7/14 at 8:11pmpost #10524 of 355148/7/14 at 9:31pmQuote:Originally Posted by Newcomer

Hmm. That is a good point. But OTOH, I freaking love the Valve. I can probably say I have worn it more times than any other NMWA item I have bought. Ill make my decision in the AM.
Esemplare coat is also up there.
I love outerwear.post #10525 of 355148/7/14 at 9:55pmpost #10526 of 355148/8/14 at 5:37amQuote:
I went up a size, but I'm going to go down a size on another order. The size up is fine for the most part, a couple panicked moments happened when in the waves, but they stayed on. The size up fits my rear and thighs very well, it's just a little big in the waist.
EDIT: To be clear, I was between sizes and went to the larger one.
Edited by DLJr - 8/8/14 at 6:10ampost #10527 of 355148/8/14 at 6:04amI bought the tomato in 34, which is my standard trouser size for a 35ish inch waist. It fits on the big side, so you might not need to size up. I am going to dry them to see if they shrink a little but I doubt they will considering the fabric.
I can measure the waist of the 34 and post later if that's helpful.post #10528 of 355148/8/14 at 6:29ampost #10529 of 355148/8/14 at 7:56ampost #10530 of 355148/8/14 at 8:21am
