I think this is the last of the UPS deliveries for now. Two staples. And boy do I want a Formosa suit. Perhaps Uncle Sam can fund one in a couple of months.

The Casentino cloth is an acquired taste, much like most of the popular items on clothing forum or blogs.

Referring to my tan version of this coat, a young coworker of mine called it "shabby" looking. She quickly added, though, that while it may look shabby, it is somewhat "chic"

Rota x 2 (brown and beige wool twill) at the tailor's. He loves them, asked who makes them, asked who sells them, told me to buy more. Ok, I told me to buy more. The rest is true.

Grey polo overcoat handling the rain well today. I was very surprised by this coat, both in the fit and in the material. Better than expected on both fronts. The material looked like it might be a bit more on the coarse side. Not at all. And the fit is comfortable and natural, while staying trim. Just beautiful.

The Merz B. Schwanen sweatshirt is just as advertised. Good stuff. Though it came marked as final sale without actually being on sale. WTH NMWA?!?! smile.gif

Lastly, I had a customer service question from a previous purchase. As expected, NMWA has been more helpful than one might expect from a retailer. I know you expect it from NMWA, but is still worth noting.

Just received my order of cashmere cardigan and two ties. Classics and exactly what I'm looking for, I will be wearing them for years to come. The customer service and goods provided by this store is second to none.

My ts(s) shirt jacket just arrived - it's rad, everything I could have hoped for. Great cut, great texture. I'm going to wear this a lot. It can easily work as an outer layer on a mild day, but it also would work great and a mid layer if buttoned all the way up. Simple design but clever and versatile. I'll try to upload a picture later in the weekend.

Baron - Would you mind snapping a fit pic of the shirt jacket?

+1 to the Casentino cloth being an acquired taste. I think my tan DB one is great as a more casual coat.

This is what I love to hear :fistbump:

Been away from the forum for a while, returned recently and spent the last few days perusing this entire thread. Quite the bevy of activity// lots of nice stuffs. I kept waiting for either IS's head or bank account to explode but it appears both may still be intact (?).

A few questions for gdl203 & co/smartly attired general populace:
While I've gleaned the shoulder and waist measurements for the Inglese shirts, I'm wondering what they are for the Mazzarelli's, size 16. Also, for anyone who has purchased an Inglese shirt and found the sleeves too long (as they invariably would be for me), have you had sleeves shortened and how successful was the end result? Seems a shame to tamper with all that pretty hand stitching...

@Baron- which color ts(s) shirt jacket did you get? I like the look of the camel one.

I got the black one. I wouldn't mind having both.

I have a Mazz 16...shoulders are 19" and waist is drop 5 from chest if I'm not mistaken.

Inglese shirts have a much shorter shoulder, hence the sleeves measurements shown on the website is a little misleading. I own both Inglese and Mazzarelli in same sizes, and the Inglese sleeves actually fall shorter because of the narrower shoulder.

I'm sure it's lovely, it's just that I have so many black coats and jackets I need to go in a different direction.

Thanks. The only thing I can ascertain is that the waist of the Mazz shirts is larger than Inglese, which I believe is 40 1/4" according to Greg.

Yeah, I gathered Inglese shoulder's quite narrow. Of the 2 shirts, which fit do you prefer and why? I have short arms, so would likely have to shorten sleeves for either. Been searching for a decent fitting RTW shirt for a while which is not easy as I have an average, albeit not slim build (suit: 42" chest, 18" shoulder, 39-40" waist), but a slightly larger neck, ideally about 16.5". Which is why the 16.7" neck on Inglese is intriguing, though I wonder if it will be too fitted in waist. Don't feel like going through the process of custom, and I don't need more than a handful of dress shirts. Nice sale prices, but no return policy makes it tricky.
