post #4816 of 6179

Hey Rick, this question is gonna be a bit of a stretch but let's see. I have one of your older shirts, non shell button variety, in ecru. I wore it recently for the first time in many months and was pleasantly surprised by how incredibly soft this shirt feels. It hasn't been washed a ton because I don't wear it that often, I think it's just the fabric you used. What was this wonderfully soft cotton fabric and do you still source from that mill?

Do you have a style number I can reference?

I purchased three new polos from S&M, while the quality is great I ordered a size too big. Then due to some unfortunate family events I sat on the return and passed my 30 days.

 

 

In size small I have:

White Polo - Shirt Collar
Heather Charcoal Polo - Shirt Collar
Marine Blue Polo - Shirt Collar
 

They are all unworn and two still in their plastic, although one was tried on inside for a few moments before realizing it was too big. 

 

I'll let them go for $60 USD including domestic shipping which is $18 cheaper than the bundle including shipping.

Thanks for letting me know. That's too bad about the thigh but I'll drop in to try them anyway.

Gentlemen,

 

We've put some shirts onto final sale included our coveted madras shirts for end of season. Some odds/ends left, a couple have a full size run still.

 

We're sending the email out tomorrow, thought I would give you men first crack at them for those who are interested.

BR,

Rick

I had explicitly decided not to buy this suit.

I blame @losrockets and @Claghorn for posting fit pics and renewing my interest.

^ Brown self-stripe with skinny lapels? Ew.

Looks like herringbone to me.

post #4824 of 6179
Yes. Herringbone with 3.5" lapels, so....
post #4825 of 6179

FWIW the lapels looks fine to me. I hate skinny, like most of us do, but I don't like super wide either.

I'm not too concerned. I know that I like 3.25-4, with 3.75 preferred. But thanks.

If that's a 42, the lapel should be 9.2 cm which is 3.6", pretty decent sized lapel we think. I think it's the angle of the pic, you're shoulder is a tad turned away from the camera making the lapel appear a bit narrower than it actually is.

Which is why herringbone generally works best with a suit (as that is)

What is why herringbone generally works best with a suit? What is your "which" referring to?

Both. Herringbone (CM) creates the appearance of self-striping (you), which (self-striping) I've never seen work on an odd jacket
