Also, kopped the Rota herringbone flannel.

Not everyone- snug chest & shoulders, way big collar. Very nice shirts, but far from ideal fit (for me).

Rota's, otoh, are icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

My experience with Mazzarelli and Inglese, both in 16/41. I'm generally 40/42 in suits and jackets and 16/41 in shirts. I'm relatively slim, work out, and have some chest, shoulder and back development (but not jacked by any means), as well as somewhat pronounced shoulder blades. Mazzy fits well except that it's a bit too big at the waist and could be a touch tighter in the collar. Inglese is snug in the chest and shoulders; the collar is really too big; and the sleeves are long. Getting the sleeves shortened wasn't a big deal. The collar was really surprising, though. Even after washing and drying a couple of times, including with regular heat in the dryer, it was too big. I had a tailor move the collar button, which causes a bit of collar overlap when tightened with a tie. I couldn't size down to 15.75/40 for a narrower collar because of the smaller chest and didn't want to give up the shirt because of the fabric and workmanship. I have resigned myself to the fact that Inglese just isn't for me, which is sad.

So it sounds like the Mazzerelis that I am interested in and are always out of stock at SALE TIME
probably won't work for me. I wear 16.5 34/35. However my actual chest measurement is 44",
shoulders proportional, waist around 36" . I wear 44R jacket- not slim fit.

Comments?

Mazzy needs wider shoulders--about an inch wider.

Inglese is cut almost perfectly for me. A couple of washes and the sleeves are at the right length.

(I wear 15/38.)

Who's interested in another Formosa MTO thread? I'm wide open for fabric suggestions and looking for something we can do for a suit. We will need 8 commitments and pricing will be standard RTW pricing offered by NMWA. If there's enough interest, I'll start a separate thread to get the ball rolling.

I am interested in a sc order


Cheers

Is the current navy flannel birdseye formosa going to be restocked?

 

And @murlquirl - I would be in for a SC, but if I see a suit I like enough, i could be in.

I'd consider another SC, although if Greg and dieworkwear can coordinate on the tobacco brown fresco, I'd probably do that.

 

Here are the threads from the MTO, in case anyone wants to peruse the previous options: Round 1, Round 2.

 

These are my favorites that didn't make the cut, with 1, 3, and 7 and the top of the list:

 

1. Grey/blue small check flannel

 

  

 

2. Green/brown quadruple check mid-weight tweed

 

  

 

3. Mid-weight worsted check tweed

 

  

 

4. Mid-weight soft finish blue with brown windowpane

 

 

 

5. Soft mid-weight lambswool/angora - brown with navy pane

 

  

 

6. Soft mid-weight lambswool/angora - navy with rust double pane (similar to my Dormeuil Scottie Derby but without the baby blue lines)

 

  

 

7. Lighter weight navy/brown/burgundy check (similar colors to my Woodhouse jacket, different check scale)

 

  

 

 

8. Very soft brown & cream mid weight wool/cashmere houndstooth with blue overcheck

 

  

 

9. Lightweight hemp/silk/cashmere plaid - brown with blue overcheck

I imagine the possibility of doing the tobacco Fresco just depends on whether or not there's enough interest among NMWA customers. For those unaware, I'm doing a 10oz run of this cloth, which is similar to a run that Slewfoot put together a while ago, but it's slightly less red.



Note, I'm closing the window for orders on this on July 11th, so if you want a suit or sport coat made from this, you'll have to organize enough orders here soon.
post #9384 of 12404
For those considering, I would definitely recommend having it made as a suit and breaking it up when you feel the need. This is what I'm doing. Thanks again Derek for organizing.
post #9385 of 12404
I would be interested in a sportcoat from Formosa, as well as a suit. I would be much more selective with a suit though.
post #9386 of 12404
I would love a SC in that grey/blue check flannel. Might start a thread to gauge interest/commitments in that.

Dieworkwear, please PM me details....that would be a great suit.
post #9387 of 12404
Ha, I would be much more in with that if I had not just purchased a Tobacco linen smile.gif.

But keep me abreast on the sportcoat project Murl, I may be interested if it is the right weight.

Alright, we need to make this happen...10oz tobacco fresco that Dieworkwear posted above. I'm envisioning it almost exactly like this:


8 commitments people, let's make it happen!

The jacket works well as a sport coat as well.

post #9390 of 12404
Greg, if we have 8 commitments....can some commit to SCs and some to suits or does it have to be one or the other?
