While you are here and I'm considering blowing my budget at the trunk show, any sizing tips for the toggle shawl inis meain? Go a little more roomy or a little more fitted?

Trousers look beautiful (I'm already on record about those Mazzarelli shirts smile.gif, though I haven't posted a photo since cutting off the pocket like I think I was told to do here...). I feel as if I might be between sizes on the Rotas, but nothing a visit to the tailor wouldn't fix. Have them on my list to try.

Thanks bud icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I will be a big buyer of the Mazz shirts. They fit so darn well, have a beautiful collar roll, and are right in the right price range (for me). The Rotas fit me pretty much perfectly, or at least as far as my tastes go. Highly recommended.

Awesome. Question, does the collar tend to stay up on its own when popped? I have a DB quilted wool coat, but when I put up the collar, it tends to flop and fall back down unless I have a scarf underneath giving it support. Wondering if the corduroy helps give the collar structure and stiffness to stay up on its own. Seriously considering this jacket, although it's prob the last thing I need...

How is the sizing on the Buttero Brunello boots? What size would work for me if I get a 10.5e uk on the Edward Green 82 last?
Thanks!

This collar definitely stays up without any trouble. It could well be the corduroy. I think the outer coat material is also light enough that it is not falling under its own weight, and there must be something to the construction.

If anything, I've had a harder time getting it to lay flat on the one or two occasions when I thought I wanted it too. I pretty much leave it up though.

Thanks!

 

They are sized in Eur sizes, and fit 1/2 to a full size large.  So for a UK10.5E on the EG82, I would probably recommend the 44

Cool, thanks. I'm thinking that the throat latch piece also helps the collar stand up. Maybe it was discussed before, but did you just go with your regular jacket sizing? And do you find it fits more on the slim or "regular" side?

I went with a 50 as the equivalent to my usual size 40 US. It's a nicely tailored fit for me IMO with room underneath for a sport coat or, as in the photo above, a decent weight
lambswool cardigan.

How's the fit on that Oliver Spencer Lambeth bomber? I'm a 42 in most brands, so would the 42 be OK assuming I'm looking for a slightly relaxed fit and don't plan on zipping it most of the time?

Have you thought about offering Rota MTO option for those who can't visit the trunk show?

I'd be interested...depending on the MTO charge.

I'm not one to recommend a tight fit for knitwear so I'd say go TTS here.

Yes. The fit is already reasonably relaxed (there's always tabs for those who want to cinch the waist, but if you look at the runway, they're shown more relax / boxy which is the intended look)

Yes absolutely. And I'm happy to help people find a fabric they like but I just don't have the time to take shots of the 150+ fabric cards. If someone tells me "I'm interested in large checks" or "I'm looking for herringbone", then I can certainly help narrow down and pick something.

We'll be taking email and phone orders during the trunk show and for a few days afterwards.

That is great to hear. I would definitely like to order more "year round" / light fabrics without having to wait for S/S.

are you going to being awarding a free pair of MTO rota trousers to people at the trunk show with the SF handle, in stitches? i think that would be a cool thing to do.
