they only hold limited stock for the website - usually just 2 of each size - but they will track your size down if it's available elsewhere.
Thanks for your suggestion. I send them a message via general enquiries on the contact form on their site on the weekend but I still haven't heard anything back.

Thanks for your help mate, unfortunately they can't get me one either :(

Oh well. If anyone has any alternative recommendations, let me know!

Had the opportunity at looking at some of S/S14 at Fulham Road earlier in the week; they don't everything in yet. Some lovely shirts in the new collection – I will be making my shortlist in due course.

X-post from WAYWT. You can't imagine have soft this jumper is. It's like a cloud.

There's one left in my size at Inventory... or did you get it from somewhere else?

mmm.. that's a pretty confident statement for such a young jedi master. :-)  As a student Margaret started making jewellery and as a graduate Mens Shirts. That was the design seed that built the oak tree. It is not surprising that it is generally female fashion customers who would have such curious views of one collection being so much stronger than the other. It kind of works the other way too though, MH men seem to like things to be a little more understated and it is intentionally off the fashion radar. Fortunately design creation is not conceived as a competition of who blows who out of the water. The good thing about Margaret is she thinks universally and knows that the mens traditions of manufacture and design-engineering, with a foundation for quality craftsmanship, provide a sound platform to adapt her womenswear collections. Apart from the couture houses, the manufacture of womens designer clothing is often pretty ropey and poorly made. I personally teach aspiring, young womenswear fashion apprentices how to bluff on a pocket in the traditional bespoke way of mens suiting traditions. That is an important learning key. And finally just to balance things a little,  in the last 10 years Margaret has been nominated three times by the British Fashion Council for Mens Designer of the Year, (surprisingly none for her Womens) so has a pretty secure footing in both camps, or water troughs considering your eye-catching comment :-)

Not disagreeing with this. Just to be clear, Im talking about the collection as a collection--presented on a runway and viewed through jpegs on the internet etc. Within those parameters, I still find womens 2013 visually/aesthetically stronger as a whole than mens 2013. Doesn't really matter.
