I agree with that.  US7 should be a good fit for 39 in Buttero.

Just general questions. How versatile is this shirt? What is the temperature range for which it is most appropriate? Would I take a large if I am a slim 40R?

That Schneider shirt-jacket is seriously awesome, very pleased with it. How is the weight of the grey cotton version?

It's about the same weight as the navy. Less coarse of a weave. It's really nice too.

Alright, I'll take a stab at it, in the form of some initial impressions when handling it:

 

The nylon has a very, very soft hand to it, and the down inside is very lightweight.  The side hand pockets are a nice touch and the chest pockets help break up the looks of it, making it more of a jacket than some sort of technical layering garment.

 

It's not overly puffy, so is thin enough to wear as a mid-layer.  Its length, which is on the shorter side, also helps with this, but also means it will look appropriate as an outer layer on warmer days or cooler nights.

 

As far as temperatures, that all depends on what you want to layer with it and your sensitivity to cold, so I can't really weigh in on that.  I would describe it as "warm enough" and it's certainly warmer than my go-to Uniqlo ultra-light down that I always wear as a mid-layer on colder days (but I don't expect much from a $70 down jacket).

 

Plus it's reversible, so it's like 2 jackets in one! 

 

I would probably recommend an XL for you, from what I remember of your build - this runs on the trim and short side.

UPS redefined on time to mean "when we get there."

So, shoes... not here today. Maybe tomorrow.

Hey guys,

I figured I might as well post this here, too - just in case people don't follow the tumblr.

Kind of made me wonder why I like what I like, which is never a bad thing.

(There will be a longer Part 2)

that was a great read. i loved his answers. really enjoy his POV on being a designer and the fashion world. very cool and down to earth, very practical and so far from self serving.

My size is gone.  :censored:  If a 16.5 is too big for anyone on the 100% blue linen please PM!!

Received our new shipment of Calabrese bags today. It included restocks of black Napoli bags and both colors of the boiled wool/leather ones.

And 8 new styles that are all freaking awesome - some full leather ones (including a leather/suede combo) and several more seasonal canvas/leather combos (including a seersucker and a striped cotton).

Photos to come... But I'm excited by these arrivals smile.gif
