Sounds like mine. Looks like I have a solid reason to make another purchase soon. Thanks!

Can someone explain to me what is the purpose of a linen overcoat? In what situations and weather it should be worn?
Thanks

^ I'd assume a linen jacket is for breezy summer nights when you want an extra layer but anything resembling a winter weight coat would wear way too warm.

I've been hit a couple times with 13% HST, plus 18% duty, plus a courier brokerage fee ($10-15). Not pleasant. The 18% applies not just to English shoes, but to any shoes not made in Canada or the US.

But in each case that was for a package shipped via courier. I always specificy delivery by trackable post if given the option - and my success rate of have no duties OR taxes assessed is better than 80% when shipped by that method. Probably closer to 90%.

Thanks for the information gentlemen. My package is finally on the move, hopefully it'll cross the border by Monday.

With all the grief I gave to USPS for the time it took them to actually get the package, the delivery to Canada was super fast (2 days from pickup to my door), plus I didnt get to pay a single cent of taxes/duties so all in all im pretty happy. Ordered the La Portegna portfolio and it is really beautiful, I think I will need to get myself a Fat Carter.

I wouldn't call the Niche linen coat an "overcoat". (I would just call it a badass coat...)

It's a reasonably heavy linen so it isn't something you'd wear on a hot summer day/evening. It also has a hood (removable) and a more casual/utilitarian look to it. So to me that's an awesome coat to wear on weekends and nights out all spring and fall (why not). Its utility is the same as a Schneider cotton/linen coat or a ts(s) hooded cotton coat : a cool top layer to finish a more casual outfit whenever the weather isn't too warm or too cold.

It's a great coat, wish it came in black also.
Looking for something similar, nmwadudes anything similar on the horizons?

Here's a highly subjective question that I'd appreciate input on - I'm eyeballing (drooling?) over the cotton/linen Inglese below but am trying to gauge how transparent it is or isn't. Most all linen or cotton-linen blends that I have, especially the more breathable ones, allow more skin to show through. While I'm sure this will have some, I don't want so much as to alter the way the color reads; I passed on a fantastic light blue Truzzi one time that when worn took on a greenish cast once the blue combined with my moderate-to-fair skin tones.

Any input?

As someone who lives in Florida and fights, literally, fights the heat/humidity - a linen coat, jacket, or overcoat that is still water repellent is what I use for casual wear during rainy (or potentially rainy) weather 3/4's, maybe 5/6's of the year. Anything heavier is just unbearable. Especially because here in Florida we tend to get surprise/sporadic but brief showers when it's near 100 degrees - the rain hits the ground and almost instantly turns to steam. Light, light, breathable outwear is what you need here.

Of course items in super light weight NWR wool, like Loro Piana's fabled Storm System treatment, also do the trick but as you can imagine are rare and super expensive alternatives.

Big John off-white denim, with Vass Alt Wiens (NMWA):




Buy these Big Johns. You will not regret it. But note that they are not really all that slim. The suggestion on the website is to order your regular size, and I think that means your regular trouser size, not your jeans size. These are a size 33 and are just a little loose on me. For reference I wear a 33 Rudy fit in Epaulet trousers. Those are cut for guys with bigger thighs and ass. I have plenty of room in these Big Johns. I have washed these twice and had little to no shrinkage.

It is not opaque, but I was pleasantly surprised by how little read through the shirt. Stop drooling, start buying.

On the Lightning Bolt shorts, is the 18" measure the length from the waistband to the end of the leg?

I believe it was already mentioned, but I can't find the post. Are all G. Ing shirts same fit (besides popover) regardless of amount of handwork and fabric type?
