MARGARET HOWELL Fall/Winter 2013 - Page 8

post #106 of 170

Still some of the MH/Edwin jeans in the Japanese web shop. You can also find them in yahoo.jp with some frequency.

Would prefer something with a slightly lower rise and more tapered from the knees down while maintaining the relaxed steeze.

Fenwick on New Bond Street are now carry a small selection of Margaret Howell Mens Mainline.

I'm going to consider this the official MH thread, since sipang did such a nice job starting it.

I just picked up my first Margaret Howell piece, the indigo linen cable knit from Unionmade, and it is a thing of beauty. I sized well, and it seems to fit slimmer than the grey version shown above.

very nice Z
post #112 of 170
^thanks.

I'm trying to decide on the "slim" work shirt, whether I should wear it untucked and embrace to looser fit, or pass it on. I bought my usual shirt size, medium, and sadly, no smalls seem to be available. Could have it slimmed a little, but the seams are felled and chainstitched. Such a nice shirt (not the best shorts to pair it with, though...).



The fabric is beautiful.


The matelot? Well, I don't know that I will wear this out in public other than to the pool or beach.

Definitely keep. Will look great with trousers. Shoulders hit you on point and Margaret would definitely not want you to size down.

I don't love the shape of the Matelot shirt, but it will look good under a jacket. You go M on that one as well? I wanted the darker colorway, but they don't have a S and it looked like I should size down.

I think the shirt fit is spot on. Great fabric.
post #115 of 170
Thanks, guys. Will keep. I know that's how it was intended to be worn, based on the looks. I just have to get used to it smile.gif

I went with a small based on the measurements. Yeah, it's a little feminine of a cut, and the "light grey-blue" color is actually more of a light violet. I find that boat neck matelots look best when worn on:
1. women
2. small wooden sailboats (preferably, that you built yourself)
3. narrow alleys in France
4. beaches in 1930

Wish I could have helped you sooner. The indigo cable knit was made slimmer- much more so than the grey one. Unionmade's measurements were correct.

lol i've gotten so sick of asking unionmade about their size XL 20.5" p2ps, and jeans in bigger sizes having smaller thigh measurements, and their being defensive even when I phrase my e-mails in the most courteous of tones. Will probably never from them again. Also looks like La Garconne will be carrying both the main and MHL line soon.

hey Z how is quality compared to brands like NC and EG?
post #118 of 170
I would say on par with NC. I like EG, but have never been particularly impressed with the quality. I'd put EG on par with RRL (for the most part), but a step below NC, MH, and Mister Freedom, at least in my closet.

I expect it ended up slimmer because of the indigo dyeing process. I think there was some variation in size on these garments because Margaret Howell were not selling them online.

The Autumn Winter Mens Lookbook is now online:

http://www.margarethowell.co.uk/collections/men/autumn-winter-2104-collection/

Looks a very solid collection although I always feel it's a case of deja-vu with a lot of the garments (although I'm not complaining).

The heavy Moleskin trousers which were made in Black for AW13 return in Navy, Grey and Brown.

Shirt Blazers, Saddle Crews, Classic shirts.

The Navy Melton DB Reefer Jacket, Military Shirt and Japanese Cotton Shirt have caught my eye.

Very interested in the navy parkas, the parka with the blue sweater is one of my favorite pics from the runway lookbook. Shame none of the official sites ship to NA.
