post #32251 of 37334

For myself, at least, I like olives/dark greens paired with a navy blazer (as an alternative where khaki colors are more common), or more casually with knitwear in the blue range or more neutral colors. I'm wondering if it might look good with the IM straw cloth (natural/beige) -- I'll test that out soon.

Cheers.

Quick and rough:

 

Thigh (straight across one leg): just shy of about 31 cm

Knee (same deal): about 22.5cm (give or take, because of the crease)

Just purchased my very first pair of Rota's. Looking forward to receiving them and hoping they fit well.

My comment is more of "its not you/the pants, its me". I have seen people wear olive/green trousers and they do appear versatile. I probably have about 15 odd trousers and 2 of them are a blue and navy and the rest are various shades and weight of grey wool. All my suits are also blue or grey shades.

I do have the green heavy cotton trousers that i wear on more casual basis.
I guess i would not wear green wool trousers to work or any formal type setting and in my casual settings i will wear cotton trousers or denim.

I also dont wear any tan/beige/khakis or brown (a brown suit, oh the horror) I am very specific and weird but as i said "its not the pants, its me"

They fit very well. Fitted but not overly slim. The seat and thighs are perfect as is for me but i do taper thr leg opening when i get them. The size 52 has a 22cm opening (crease to crease) and i like it about 20cm (7 3/4 to 8 inches or so). So i take it in about 4cm. Purely a preference. The rise at 26.5cm and the seat, thighs are as good as it gets for RTW for me

Am I correct that the navy linen canvas SC is more for a non-tie occasion (casual piece) than the navy fresco SC from Eidos?

ie the linen-canvas is less versatile than the navy fresco?

I ask because I'm liking the NMWA offerings but I'm extremely wary of Japanese labels - I find they're usually cut for, obviously, Japanese bodies and I can never get a good fit on them.  I recently had to let go of a Japanese label suit for just this reason...the jacket was somewhat small but within range, but the pants were like leggings on me.

I dig the look of the Camoshitas but don't want to make another sizing mistake - suits aren't cheap.

I own two jackets by Camoshita, but no suits (one of the old madras jackets from spring 2014 and a gray knit blazer type thing from fw 2015). They are a bit different in their cut. Both are perfect length for me (5'9", 176 lbs). I have no idea about Camoshita pants. My general feeling is that japanese clothes fit really well on me, but I am shorter than average and have wide shoulders. I can't for the life of me understand why Camoshita doesn't create a more western cut.

Which Eidos navy fresco SC are you referring to?  

 

The linen canvas one is a bit more casual looking and feeling than a traditional navy blazer.  Of course, a navy blazer is more versatile than that.  But if you're going to spend a week in a Carribean island, then the linen canvas jacket will be more versatile there.   

 

I have an old Boglioli jacket that is very similar (even though miine is a herringbone) and that I wear it really often in the summer.  It's also the first (sometimes only) sport coat I pack for a summer vacation.

@gdl203
I purchased two pairs of rota pants at your NYC trunk show and I was trying to add on a 3rd before your SF show is over. I did the order with you and you had written the possible 3rd fabric on my order form.
I sent an email last Thursday to add on a 3rd pair and there has been radio silence from NMWA since. At which time frame do I assume the email is in no mans land and send you another or call?
Just asking bc I dont want to clutter your email with duplicate requests and i have had emails not answered before.
Regards

Any sizing suggestions on the GRP polo? From the measurements they seem to fit small.

 

I am a regular size 40R/EU50.

I'm a true 40R andI take a size 5. I could possible go down to a 4 for a trim fit but I prefer the 5.

I realize that we sometimes go through our email queue a bit slowly (because we focus on urgent/shipping issues first) but I'm not sure you should assume that an email that's not answered after 1.5 business days is lost forever.  We typically don't lose emails and we typically reply when a reply is needed (which is not always the case).

 

I just sent you a quick reply - everything is AOK with your order
