The only measurement I checked was the shoulders and it's spot on. I made other adjustments and they appear/feel good, but didn't bother checking.

For my Inglese MTM shirts, I started with a size 41. I have a few and knew that they were a bit tight in the chest, a bit big in the waist, and the sleeves were long. I visited the offices and tried on 40, 41, and 42. I liked 41 overall, the chest of the 42 and the waist of the 40. We also figured out how much to shorten the sleeves and tighten the cuffs. The result is: size 16/41; sleeve -2cm; chest +2cm; waist -2cm; cuff -1cm. They felt and looked good out of the box and after a few washes they seem to be spot-on.

I recently got a great new job that I am really excited about. I decided that to celebrate, I needed a new bag and had picked the LA Portegna Fat Carter bag in Sol brown leather as the perfect solution. So there I was on Saturday, minding my own business and about to place my order, when my pregnant wife decided to go into labor 2 months early. After a very scary two days and an emergency C section Monday morning, this happened: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Obviously my new bag purchase will be put on hold for a while, but I do appreciate my daughter sharing my commitment to punctuality.

Everyone is doing reasonably well and thankfully being early and tiny are our biggest concerns.

 

Congratulations !!! Wishing you, the baby and mom great health and a wonderful next few weeks.

Thanks,

Just like the other styles that can be supplemented with an Arctic liner, we would recommend your normal letter size to wear without liner and to size up one if you plan on adding the liner.   

 

I need L in Moscow and XL in Single-Breasted with liner on.  Here I am trying on the Pilot Short in L over a thin sweater.  Trim but probably the right size without liner - I'd want XL if I planned on wearing it with liner or if I wanted a looser fit

Also, I need to know: What're the leather strap and buttons for on the back of the NR collars?

 

This is to secure the rolled hood for those who prefer to keep the hood attached but don't want the hood to flap around.  There's a corresponding leather strap on the hood that fastens onto these buttons.  Here is a pic of it fastened with the hood rolled

Great, thanks Greg. Will NWMA stock the liner?

Alright, G just broke the internet. Blue Blue Japan is in the house, damn.

That NR stuff is great. I really like everything they have. Strongly considering the Pilot Short jacket. But love that SB mixed denim.

They have an amazing ability to make rain wear that does not look like rain wear.

Yes, we will stock the Arctic liners in the fall.

That sashiko jacket is boss. Greg, could you compare the fit to Valstar -- either FW suede harringtons or the winter lined suede bomber?
post #31301 of 37263

How is sashiko jacket supposed to be sized and possibly worn - shoulders on M seems narrow?

post #31302 of 37263
I feel like I should get size XL in sashiko. My first XL jacket ever shog[1].gif

@conceptual 4est Kyle, what size do you wear in BBJ sashiko, L?
post #31303 of 37263
I grabbed the M and L in sashiko, so one will be going back if anyone missed out.
post #31304 of 37263

@LA Guy can fill you in on fit of this piece, but my understanding is shoulders run narrow 

post #31305 of 37263
Liking that fan print shirt, but not sure if the chest would be too tight..
