We can't restock the Minnis houndstooth unless we do a re-run of the Minnis 0656 fabric.  And we can only do a re-run if there's enough demand for fabric cuts, because the size of the roll we need to order is way too large to just do Formosa suits.

 

I need to post the swatches for what I have in mind for Formosa SS16 and pre-orders, and there will be a summer gun check in there.  But winter stuff is all here now - nothing more in fall/winter weight is coming until September/October, unless it is MTO or GMTO

 

The Moonbeam is amazing though - if it's still in stock in your size, I would think hard about this one.

post #27589 of 36506
Yeah I wasn't enthused about the Moonbeam initially, but it grew on me and is definitely one of the next two I purchase. At this point just have to hope it's still around next month, two Formosa purchases a month is plenty for me!

Are you guys with the Combatentes shirt from Portuguese Flannel wearing it as an overshirt over another button down? Can I get away with it over a flannel or heavier button down? Assuming I should size up for that.

Also, if I fit nicely into a 42 Barba shirt from their slimmer line, assuming I should go for the same in an Inglese?

Greg,

I tried some search, but need advice on sizing on SS memory coat. I'm 5'10" 185 with broad shoulder. In J crew ludlow suit, I typically wear 40, and in a more trad suits like BB, I wear 38. I looked at the measurement for the memory coat size V and it looks huge....Should I be sizing down to a IV? Interested in the camel version smile.gif

Not Greg, but I'll play...

Given the soft nature of that coat the measurements are deceiving. Despite looking big I went with my standard SS sizing. I wear a VI and based off your info I think a V would be perfect

All of the above - but I would order your regular size on this one, as these are meant to fit as overshirts.

 

As for the Inglese, probably?  But check chest measurements first

Go with a V in this one, the measurements are a bit deceiving

I think it's been discussed before... great shoes, questionable business practices/strategy.   Is there anyone left in the US that carries AS?   

FWIW, I had to completely resole my AS Pimlicos after one season, where they got wettish (not soaked) maybe once or twice. The sole stitching had come off on one of them.

These are the sweaters of Bull McCabe and Quint. Sweaters that leave on when you take your woman.  

 

I swear to god, if I see one of you at a Bergdorf party wearing one of these sweaters and huddled in a corner fearing a waiter bumping into you with a tray of champagne I will throw you out a fucking window.

 

 

Also, Moonbeam! It's really surprising to me that it hasn't sold out at this point.

I wouldn't brush the Bulls Wool...that's cray.  I'm just talking about your typical lambswool sweater.

 

 

If the Moonbeam was in stock in 50L, I would grab it.

I actually have no opinion on the brushing of knits. It never occurred to me. I just like re-posting that lefty post when the opportunity arises. :)

 

You should definitely consider having Steed make you a sport coat with that Moonbeam fabric. It's the right weight and versatile.

It just never occurred to me either.  I guess if there's stuff on it, I gently tap it or brush it off with my hand.  I wouldn't want to brush knit wool fibers, but if you do it often and it doesn't seem to damage or pill the wool, then why not.   And definitely never use a sticky lint roller there (it leaves glue deposits that are not good for the wool and great for moths)
