These are the same size and cut as some of my better fitting chinos. I agree these ones don't look great. Hopefully my Noodle's weight loss challenge will correct it a bit.Quote:
Didn't notice at all until you said something. I have no trouble moving in it at all. I feel like it fits very well. I'm not getting any pulling at the buttons, but I do see what you guys are saying with the wrinkling near the chest/armpits. What adjustment would you recommend I ask Luxire to make on the next shirt? + 0.5" in the chest?post #6724 of 374975/31/14 at 3:16pmWhat size and cut/make are those?
Doesn't look like they have enough material in the front or back. Are you sure you haven't pulled a noodles and are trying to shoehorn yourself into too small a size?post #6725 of 374975/31/14 at 3:17pmLuv2breformed, the problem is more of luxire not accounting for your sloping shoulders. It's a common problem with their shirts, you will notice that the wrinkles dissappear if you shrug your shoulders up. Try it. Of course you should add a touch to the chest, around 0.25 inches, but the wrinkles near your armpit won't dissappear unless they address the slope.post #6726 of 374975/31/14 at 3:17pmpost #6727 of 374975/31/14 at 3:21pmpost #6728 of 374975/31/14 at 3:55pmQuote:Originally Posted by AJL
I too would like to chime in here; in the interest of offsetting a recent outflow of cash to the fine folks at NMWA, I'd like to offer first crack to my posse here at Noodles' House of Sartorial Corrections at some fantastic Panta...pants (yeah, I coulda said trousers/trews/whatever).
Non-vanity sized 50, brand new unworn, unaltered. One pair staple light grey mid weight flannel, one pair rich medium brown (lovely color, damnit) in a similar weight, perhaps a bit thinner, and one pair of heavier weight medium grey cashmere barleycorn. These never fit, and at this point never will. Come with all the typical Panta bells and whistles. Will be sad to see them go, but at least I know I have a good fit in Rota's now.
Also have a great pair of practically unworn suede Buttero's via NMWA, in the oh-so-small size of 39. This is the cream of what I will be selling at the moment, plus may have to cull some unused/unworn ties at some point.
Let me know if there's interest and I can provide measurements, pics, etc. Before I actually have to get my shit together and post these up "officially". Will have to figure out reasonable pricing; I don't wanna take too bad a hit, you don't wanna pay more than you wanna pay. Currently offered by Ed at $279 retail. http://www.pantaclothing.com/SearchResults.asp?Cat=98
@jrd617- that is pretty amusing.
I would be interested in the light grey flannel and possibly the brown pair depending on the thigh measurements. I ordered the light grey flannel and unfortunately had to return them because the thigh measurement was nowhere near what Ed had listed on the sizing chart on the site.post #6729 of 374975/31/14 at 4:23pmQuote:
These are brooks brothers Milano size 33 advantage chino. I got torn a new one here when I posted size 32 previously. I just posted a fit yesterday in the mc casual thread wearing Milano size 33 chino and everyone said they fit great. The difference my be between their standard and their "advantage chino". Regardless, they are too low rise for my preference anyway, and I won't be purchasing more of them.post #6730 of 374975/31/14 at 4:23pmQuote:Originally Posted by Robstrongo

I can check in a while, and post up some pics as well, though perhaps it's better to do this via pm, so it doesn't become a b&s ext? Just a thought (have received several pms already). Perhaps I can post up pics here and interested parties can contact me via pm?post #6731 of 374975/31/14 at 4:26pmQuote:Originally Posted by kulata

Thanks for the great stuff, guys. Shrugging the shoulders indeed made the wrinkles disappear entirely. Should I ask for any additional fabric rather than .5 in the chest in order to account for shrinkage?post #6732 of 374975/31/14 at 7:31pmA good shirt company should adjust for shrinkage if you tell them your target measurement. Will depend on the fabric.
Also before adding or subtracting now is probably a good time to take body measurements too and see what the allowances are. For example it's standard I think to allow for four inches at waist for even RTW slim in many cases. Three inches would be pushing it leading to gaping when you sit. You want to know where you're at now, shirt measurement relative to body measurement.
That said, a striking amount of folding in the back. It looks darted but might still slim it, taking from back panel. But note your waist measurement.
And always do adjustments in small increments. Go a few shirts at a time. Don't assume a single adjustment will clearly be perfect. MTM is a process and sometimes alng one. Big orders only at the end. My 2cents.post #6733 of 374975/31/14 at 7:40pmHey Noodle folks, luv2b's pics have prompted me to finally take the plunge and try a Kamakura BD collar shirt, even though their sizing is less than ideal. I'm not sure what fabric to go with. I want this shirt to be as versatile as possible, i.e. able to wear it alone with chinos or dressed up with a worsted suit and tie. I normally prefer a spread collar with a suit, but I think Kamakura's BD collars look great with suits (especially in Henry Carter's fits).
I'm going with a solid blue, but what weave? Regular oxford, pinpoint, royal oxford, or dobby? My thoughts are that regular oxford would be just a bit too casual to go wear with a worsted suit, but preferable when wearing the shirt with no jacket. Royal oxford or pinpoint would be better when wearing with a suit, but less than optimal when wearing alone with chinos. And I'm not entirely sure what dobby is. Anyone care to educate me?
^ Just kinda thinking out loud hear. Would appreciate any thoughts on the matter. If I can find a fit/size that works for me, I'll eventually get several Kamakuras, but for now, I'm looking for something of a OneShirt.post #6734 of 374975/31/14 at 7:58pmQuote:Originally Posted by TweedyProf
