And they are not just very versatile, but they really take travel well too.  I've had mine since either before, or right after, No Man opened (I got it from another store, since No Man did not carry it at the time), and it looks nearly new, even though it's been put through the ringer (ask Kyle - he knows how tough I am on things).  It's one of the rare instances in which form and function actually meet.

It was finally cold enough to wear together a couple of recent purchases. Here is the 6-ply S&C cashmere cable knit turtle neck paired with the green Monitaly pea coat.

If you really want something and you're confident about fit and have the funds, then you go ahead and pull the trigger. If not, you waffle and drag your feet, and yeah, maybe you hope on some level the thing passes you by before you can commit. Then when it does, you feel regret, likely followed by some measure of relief.

In my case, I had real fit concerns, so I was determined to let it pass. First deadline, pass. Reopened, second deadline, pass. Reopened again, then...pop goes the willpower. I figured if it came back around a third time it must be an omen or something.

So, I didn't preorder, and I am sure that I am an exception to all types of things, but... in my case, I set a strict limit on my personal spending, and adhere to it religiously.  I hold the belief that if I say, even once "well, it just goes on next month' budget", then it's just a sliding scale/slippery slope.  For me, there is no exceptions to the rule.

 

I was also really good at adhering to a restricted diet (incidentally, I am not on one now), exercise regimes, work schedules, etc...

 

I imagine that Styleforum has more than its share of people like me, with a type of strict, obsessive personality, that manifests in different ways.  I could easily see someone being obsessive about getting their choice right, so that they get to to the very last minute, where they have, theoretically, the most complete information about all their choices, not just here, but for ALL of their purchasing decisions.

 

tldr: pop psychology at work.

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.

Pretty sure I just saw the Minotaur black gradient chesterfield on someone as I was leaving the 96th street subway. Looks pretty damn cool in the wild

Does anyone launder these at home? Delicate cycle, hang dry, iron? All the hand sewn details are making me nervous.

Also how do I get my closet to smell like new Inglese?! Sandalwood?

 

I soak mine in cold water and detergent for a couple hours, then give any spots a scrub with my hands, hang dry them and then have them pressed on low-heat at my dry cleaners. Seems to work well.

On Monday by end of day, we will be posting the pre-order plan for Eidos which is three fold: (1) special MTO project for field jackets (4 or 5 fabrics); (2) special MTO for hunting jackets (4-5 fabrics) and (3) actual pre-orders on the styles we selected for the store sport coats, suits, trousers and overcoats

The new collection is spectacular and Antonio keeps upgrading a number of things (fabric, pattern, production)... this brand is going to be big - and we're proud that we've had such a great partnership with @NickPollica
 on tailored offerings.

You'll be fine. I've done that many times with all my Inglese shirts (at least five) with no problems.

Thanks! Have you ever experienced any shrinking using these methods? I usually wash cold, I ask because I do not have much room for it in a 38.

Greg, any chance for the Eidos preorder the sleeves on outerwear have been widened? The only complaint I've heard about Eidos is that the outerwear sleeves are really narrow.
post #29893 of 36478
I may have had a bit of shrinkage in a couple of Inglese, but I can't remember whether they were just tighter than my other Inglese shirts (coincidentally all 38) before I washed them. They all fit a little differently from the start.

I find excuses to wear the bunnies.
post #29895 of 36478
Speaking of which, @gdl203 and @conceptual 4est is there another SdC bunny preorder planned for FW 16?
