My favorite things about the show, other than meeting a lot of new people, were seeing products that will be available online soon, and talking to vendors about how the products are made. On the first, I'm looking forward in particular to the larger-sized @Kent Wang pocket squares. I like a lot of the designs Kent does, but prefer larger squares in general. The new ones will be 47cm x 47cm, so even bigger than the Rubinacci squares. Kent had a sample of the Great Wave square in the larger size which looked fantastic.
On the second, I talked to @ChristopherBerr about the fit of his shirts for a while - about the how the collar band is cut on a curved pattern to help them fit the contours of the neck better and help the collar stand up without a tie, and the high armhole/full chest cut of the body, which seems to mirror somewhat the drape cut of a jacket. I also got a lesson in leather tanning and bag construction from @JP Marcellino. He's got a unique method of making rounded handles that I found particularly attractive. I think this bag has the handle style I was looking at:
This has been my opinion as well. Good to hear he's making larger ones.
