It may be a touch obsessive ("I'm shocked, shocked to find out there's obsession going on here at The Forums..."), but from Greg's perspective at least it's keeping his thread at the top of the page, and that can't be all bad.

Treasure the measure,
For it brings some great pleasure,
Gamboling about
In suits of white leisure.

I just can't do RTW shirts. By comparison, pants are easy - a nip at the waist, a bit in at the seat, cuffs and done. I'm picky, but more accommodating with outerwear. Same with shoes. But for shirts, it's bespoke or the shirt just won't get worn.

im the opposite. almost all the brands i use have RTW shirts that are excellent for me, but pants are near impossible. the rotas are the closest thing to RTW pants perfection i have found for my build.

Did you do measure of collars as per NMWA, from button to center of buttonhole? More than 1/2" in Inglese collar is pretty substantial. You must have really cooked these suckers.

I am actually wearing the Inglese today but will re-measure later. If it matters, the Mazz was an oxford cloth and the Inglese, some Alumo fabric. Maybe the different fabrics have different shrinkage rates. uhoh.gif And yes, I did nuke them the first two times through the dryer because the sleeves were a bit long.

On a more serious note, you need to drop some spring goods on us something fierce in order to derail this crazy shirt/pool shrinkage, non-shrinkage, partial shrinkage talk that is happening in these parts, it's getting too MC/SF minute measurment oriented up in herr...

 

 

Haha I understand where you're coming from.  I was lucky enough to help Greg with the FW Schneider picks, and I'd say that our ideas about what to pick up were very aligned.  While some jacquard sweatpants would be fun and all, I'd say that our picks were more along the lines of things that make you go "Wow.  I really need that, right now. I had no idea that was missing from my life." (not even being hyperbolic :p)  as soon as you see it, as opposed to stuff that seems novel and "might be worth picking up".  Don't get me wrong, we have some pretty aggressive pieces in there as well, but they're all ones that we felt particularly strong about and knew Schneider did well.

 

 

Regarding spring goods, keep your eyes peeled for today's newsletter (or this thread) because something should be dropping in the store...

 

Well, provided I stop playing around on SF and get on it

Oh no. This is going to turn into one of those things like when someone says they got a seconds email over on the Alden thread.

It's going to be... I didn't get the email... did you get the email... who can forward me the email... I PMd you for the email...

THE EMAIL

I'll wait patiently.

Three new Esemplare-pieces up on the website :) 

post #4691 of 12402

reversible vest looks good, waiting on sizing now

post #4692 of 12402

Yeah, the vest is on my "Wow.  I really need that, right now. I had no idea that was missing from my life" list.

Greg/Kyle - would those Esemplare labels over the hip pocket be easy to remove?

Seriously. Vests are kind of like double-breasted suits or even monks; you've either made the jump and have one (or more) or you haven't. If you haven't, then it's probably not on your radar. But there may (will?) be that moment when you see the right one and think, "Ok, I like that one; and I think I can rock it" and then it suddenly becomes an empty space that needs to be filled.

I clambered over the fence on vests a year or so ago when I found a really, really nice one that I liked and "had to have". While that one still hangs in my closet awaiting appropriately demanding weather (it's down filled and surprisingly warm!) I've since gotten a few more that are lesser pieces but more versatile for my not-quite-cold-enough locale and they've filled a niche very well; a nice way to change it up a bit.

I still want to do the pitti'esque vest-over-the-jacket look but can't bring myself to walk out the door with it. Clearly, I'm still fence straddling a bit...

Q. Can a human being have enough outerwear?

A. No.
