Squeezed it in just in time! Frank Leder is up, and we couldn't be happier with this seasons selection.

 

As before, the fabrics are just incredible, and all of them typically have some sort of pedigree or history behind them, however minor it might be. Frank is really committed to sourcing things locally and supporting the small mills and factories around him. When I met with him in Japan we talked about this, and he said there are a handful of factories there producing fabrics only for him at this point, and he is the only reason they're still around. I realize the story is only a small part of it, but it's a quite compelling addition when the fabrics really are this unique.

 

A little history on this particular collection as well, in the words of Frank himself:

 

Quote:
 
LET ME START THE EXPLANATION WITH THE SMALL COAT OF ARMS, WHICH ARE SEWN IN EVERY GARMENT FOR THIS SEASON.
AS THE COLLECTION IS ENTITLED ROOTS, THE IDEA OF THE COLLECTION WAS TO DIG DEEP INTO GERMAN REGIONAL AREAS AND UNEARTH THE SPECIFIC CHARACTERISTICS.
THAT COULD BE EITHER THE FABRIC WHICH IS PRODUCED IN A FACTORY AROUND THIS PLACE OR THE VINTAGE BUTTONS, IT COULD BE TRADITIONAL DESIGN DETAILS OF MENSWEAR ATTIRE TYPICAL OF THIS REGION OR ANOTHER DETAIL LINKING THE GARMENT TO THIS REGION.
 
SO EACH GARMENT IS ROOTED IN A CERTAIN AREA OF THE GERMAN COUNTRYSIDE AND MARKED BY IT'S SPECIFIC COAT OF ARMS.
ALL DRAWINGS OF THE  COAT OF ARMS COME FROM AN OLD 1920'S BOOKLET, FOUND IN AN ANTIQUARIAN BOOKSELLER IN BERLIN.

 

 

Here are photos I snapped of said book when I went to the showroom:

 

 

 

 

And for fun, a handful of photos from the lookbook showcasing items, or variations of items or fabrics we picked up:

Is that white and red dish towel material available for special orders?

That burgundy waxed cotton coat calls to me.

@conceptual 4est what size would you suggest in the Leder pants (either the beige or the blue) for someone who fits comfortably into size 48 Rotas? Thanks

but you can hopefully see the fit on me. i took a pic buttoned and unbuttoned. the sleeves are perf. the shoulders a tad tight but i think they will stretch and mold a bit when i wear. chest is fine. i only plan on wearing with BDs and tees. i think people can size up more if they want to layer further. im a 36 suit and size small in most brands. i sized up to the medium as it says in the sizing description on nmwa

Looks great, thank you. Is there some give in the fabric? I'm wary about the shoulders, and also across the back as mentioned by Fok. I'm a 38 in Formosa, but wondering if I'd need an XL in this.

Yes, the spirit of dope jawnz lives within us all

Arrived home to these today. First pair of Butteros and am really happy with them. Fit is spot on as well. I think these will work great in all seasons because of the versatile color and suede. Thanks NMWA!

I'm a slim Formosa 46 and went with L. I have narrow shoulders, 38" chest, and the M felt tight on my back. I think XL will work for you, length may be a minor issue.

I am also interested in the dish towel. Make it happen!

Length is always an issue for me (unlike Mr Trump). Thanks for the input.
