I'll add that ts(s) shirting fits a little bit looser than suiting and a little bit longer in the sleeve. Nevertheless, I'm consistently a 4 in tops and a 2 in bottoms, have yet to be hornswoggled through 5 tops and 3 bottoms.

Same here. Vass, Big John, and Farnese sitting in my office (but I'm not).

generally a 4 in TS(S) tops, although sometimes a 3 on some of the more oversized shirting/outerwear. been a 3 in the pants so far.

Can we get a similar rundown on your perspective on sizing for Stephan Schneider (Miami crew neck) and Inis Meain (donegal zip) sweaters?

Here's my 5 -- I clearly have Fall on the brain.

1. Stephen Schneider crewneck sweater. I would wear this year-round if I had confidence I would order the right size and not screw it up.



2. Pedaled Hacking Jacket in Grey/blue linen. Same as #1. Perfect for our mild fall and winters here in the Bay Area.



3. SS hooded cardigan. worship.gif I need this. This should be a staple item in everybody's wardrobe.



4. Inis Corran sweater. I'm sure it is even more beautiful in person.



5. Mackintosh Monkton. It doesn't rain here in California anymore, but I will join the chorus on this slept-on item.

What do you mean? The rear shot? How do you like the fit, Greg?

Maybe Rota? They look nice, definitely slim, but not unflattering in any way (i.e. not tight). What size did you order Murl?

Also, just a reminder.

Still waiting for ONE MORE for:

http://www.styleforum.net/t/403760/nmwa-x-formosa-sportcoat-lets-get-another-one-rolling/75#post_7260511

Making it up into a jacket. Great for us folks in the South, or the West Coast. If you want a Formosa jacket, this is your chance.

Also, only need to pay half up front. The other half down the road. This is as close to NMWA lay-away as you are going to get!

Just in time for your Turks & Caicos vacation.

I am going to the Oregon Coast next weekend, so, my picks with that in mind:

 

1.  Heschung Apache - I pledge, if I win the 40% code, to buy these.  I got the beige color, and I really love them.  Wear them all the time. I am sure that I would love these, in the off white as well.  Of course, I would feel dumb doing the "buy all the colors" thing.  But, at that good a deal.  Fuggedaboutit.  I would feel dumb NOT buying them:

2. Need a sweater.  It gets chilly on the coast.  I see all these pictures of dudes in white sweaters.  On the Oregon Coast, with 3 kids under 7, that's crazy talk.  That white sweater would last the 2 minutes it takes for my two year old son to come careening into me trying to take me down (I have lapses of judgement where I teach him wrestling drills) and makes me spill my coffee.  This Eo To To sweater, on the other hand, could take a full cup of coffee, some honey and yoghurt, and a fist full of dark Oregon sand like a champ: http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/index.php/clothing/knitwear/eototo-crewneck-knit-brown.html

 

 

3.  So... my fifteen year old stepson was eating dinner one night, when a friend, who was over, said "Well, that's a risque tee?"  Ddi a double take.  I had ever noticed before that his worn out "Beaver styles" tee shirt, with cute rodents with different hairstyles, from shaved bald to full afro to mohawk, could be taken another way.  Apparently, I am dumb.  Anyone who has been on Styleforum more than a month knows this to be true at least some of the time.  Anyway, I'm probably too old to be wearing a Beaver Styles tee, and in any case, he is about 50 lbs lighter, and that shirt would just show off my abs of bacon.  But this, this i could wear:

4.  I sometimes ride into town to go to the local farmer's market.  A rented bike.  With a basket on the front.  This jacket would make me feel more like, you know, a man: http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/index.php/sale-section/hacking-jacket-in-grey-blue-linen.html

 

 

 

 

5.  I love belts.  I can never get enough belts (I have over 50 right now).  And no one would believe that this is my list if there was no belt on it.  I have been remiss though.  No elastic belts.  The Farnese fills that niche.  Also, you will never need to loosen a notch, i.e. you will never realize you just gained 5 lbs in a week.  Just sorta adjust your underwear like man Spanx, and you are good to go.  By you I mean me.

Yeah, Rota and Farnese. They feel very nice after walking around a bit in them. These are a 48.

I don't know exactly. As for the length, they touch my shoes and my socks don't show. It's nice that I don't need to touch the waist or hem them!
