post #7066 of 10482
I'm really tempted by the ITALIAN KHAKI STRIPE WORKSHIRT, but it's hard to get a sense of scale and what it will look like sewn-up.

Just curious, do new fabrics always drop on the same three days each week? Monday, Thursday and Saturday?

Tuesday Thursday and Saturday, you can sign up for their email list and get a reminder. They do drop things other days but typically not first-time-offer fabrics, and just to keep the store full of options. I'm picturing the Khaki Stripe will look a lot like their first indigo stripe from last year, except khaki.

There will be a classic and slim fit. Same key dimensions so buy your current button down size. Construction/style details are changed as you can see some of. More to come this week before the launch on Saturday.

will they be a little more chopped due to the scoops being subdued, or will the length be the same?

Josh (or anyone else who knows), what are the care instructions for the Pendelton Wool shirts?  I really like the #269 that went up today, but not sure how to wash/clean it?

Agreed, I'd be interested with more info.

 

Also would love to see another 100% wool dressy winter coat (no blends).

Love that Grey CPO.

 

How about a tall size?

They did list "Dry clean only" in the product page.

Yes, I completely agree.  I'm on the market for a dressy wool coat.  It can be a blend of natural wools such as virgin, cashmere, merino, etc. but definitely must be 100% wool.  No blends and no synthetic especially.

 

As a company that specializes in high quality fabrics, I don't think Gustin should be selling any synthetic blends in their tshirts, jackets, or anywhere.

Wool blended with various plastics (nylon, poly, rayon) is inferior to 100% wool.  The blends are used to reduce cost for lower end coats but you won't see high end coats from good manufacturers made with a wool + synthetic blend.  So yes, it is by default inferior.

 

Same thing is true for shirts.  Companies use cotton + synthetic blends to reduce the fabric cost.  High end shirts rarely include synthetic.  The < $10 tshirts at walmart are generally 60% cotton / 40% poly for a reason and its not because they wanted to make a superior product.

 

There may be some technical advantages to a synthetic blend in some cases, but thats like saying there are technical advantages to plastic linoleum flooring over porcelain tile or Pergo artificial wood flooring over real hardwood floors.  It may be true but the natural authentic versions are nevertheless far more desirable.
