post #33196 of 36421

Solaro has such a fascinating history...its wearers signal their classic elegant taste yet its distinct red finishing underscores their bold and creative flare. The same principles a Father should imbue in their children...tradition, creativity, and independence. This is my Father's day gift.

Yes, just shoot us an email at customer@nomanwalksalone.com with days and times that could work for you, and we'll work something out

@PCK1 do I recall you saying you had a Solaro MTM (Formosa?) in the works?

post #33200 of 36421

This is such a no-brainer. My dad has a George Costanza wallet, and has been complaining about the size of the stupid thing for some time - to the point of asking me where to find an alternative. He just wants a wallet he can use as a daily; for a few cards and some cash if it's needed. Simple stuff. No insurance, car insurance, Petco cards, Petco insurance; whatever the hell it its. The last time I saw him, he had a goddamn TUMI card-case open on his computer. Unacceptable. This is the perfect Father's Day gift:

 

It's perfect because it doesn't require a goddamn black-tie affair at the Countess's chateau to use. Something this nice, you look for an excuse to use it. And then you use it all the time, because you absolutely can use it all the time. It's luxurious; in that it's daily luxury. It's a beautiful object that stays with you for years; that was given to you for a purpose, and that grows to have its own memories attached to it. And you don't have to buy a Tumi card case. And your son is happy for you.

 

Case closed.

For those with Inglese linen or linen blend shirts, do you wash in the washer on delicate cycle or handwash? I typically wash my cotton shirts im the washer. Not sure why I am more hesitant with linen shirts.

Same goes for Barbaa, and frankly for Inglese too.  We dialed down the specific fit of our G. Inglese shirt to our preference (slim but not too much, long enough to stay tucked, etc...)

Thanks for the info. I have heard this before re: Borrelli and Barba, but I have found my shirts (all bought in Europe) to be consistent in sizing, unless expressly sold as slim fit. I have also heard that in the US they sell slightly fuller cuts as standard, so maybe that's part of it.

But I suspect the specs you've selected for your Inglese shirts are exactly to my preference, by the sounds of your description.

I suppose I should hust take measurements, but I'm always worried I'll screw them up somehow!

Correct. I'm actually dropping by NMWA tomorrow to pick it up and take it to the tailor...it just arrived!

I soak them in cold water for 30 minutes then wash them at gentle cycle, then hang them out to dry - as long as you don't put them in dryer, all is cool!

Let's see your faves icon_gu_b_slayer%5B1%5D.gif 

Honey-DO

We all know that term right? Some of us are probably more familiar with it than others. In case you need a definition, here is the Urban DIctionary's take:

Honey Do: Chores assigned by ones mate (usually wife). This list normally includes household chores or errands and typically are assigned at the most innnoportune moments (ie: Sports event, relax time, vacations or days off, snow days, etc..). Also can be a bribe for sex...

Used in a sentence: I'd love to go to the bar with you fellas but the old lady has a bunch of honey do's for me. She needs the gutters cleaned, leaves raked, leaky faucet fixed, and a box of feminine hygiene products.


So, what better gift to get a dad for Father's Day than the finest Chore Coat money can buy to tackle that honey-do list...

Plenty of pockets for some household tools, and you probably could even fit a nice beverage into one of them to help get you through those weekend duties.

I've always felt that the best gifts are things that the recipients desire, but don't feel good about spending money on. That somewhat excessive luxury. It's also important that sizing won't be an issue, because exchanging a gift is never fun. My father used to wear cufflinks regularly for business, but his collection is a bit boring for the more festive occasions in which he wears them now that he is retired. Therefore I would give him these:

Cold water wash, gentle cycle, and hang dry.

G. INGLESE POLO SHIRTS RESTOCK / PRE-ORDERS

 

So, we will be restocking the polo shirts in the fall.  Based on feedback post-washes, we're increasing the body length by 3 cm; otherwise the fit is unchanged.  

 

We're also adding a 6th color (tan / light brown)

 

If you'd like to guarantee your preferred size & color (and also save some $), you can pre-order what you need here, and use code PREORDER at checkout.

There's a glitch, I'm dumb, or both. Attempting to add to cart yields an "out of stock" message. At least for size 40.
