With the closure of the official affiliate thread, we needed a new place to gather and talk about WvG. An official appreciation thread seemed better than posting in the Denim contest thread so...here we are.
Wolf vs Goat Appreciation Thread
Yay. I agree, hijacking the denim thread was kinda weird.
Mauro just posted a short blog post, btw: http://www.wolfvsgoat.com/blogs/blog/46836673-update
Hard to say. The new size chart gives both the front length and back length. The size chart on the older shirts only gave one figure.
If you take a 42 BD from the new size chart you get a front hip length of 25.25" and a rear center length of 29.75". The older size chart lists a medium BD with a length of 29". I would say it should be comparable.

I get that Mauro probably didn't want to deal with criticism/backlash on here but don't understand how this is going to be better for business. Obviously, plenty of brands flourish outside of SF but I rarely see WvG mentioned anywhere (hell, his IG isn't even linked to the website), and I don't see how it's enough to just be an Italian Gustin/TS. (and yes, I get that he claims SFers made up a small % of customers, but this site gets a ton of traffic...just cause someone isn't posting doesn't mean they don't lurk.) Regardless, hope it works out.
It kinda depends. I agree that brand exposure does seem like a problem for WvG, but as was said in the denim thread, Mauro took offense to a lot of stuff unnecessarily and lead to some pretty poor exchanges with customers. I never had any issues with him, but I have seen some of them here and that's not good for the brand or Mauro's blood pressure.
PR doesn't seem to be in Mauro's skill set, so maybe he can use that energy elsewhere and really just let the clothes speak for themselves.
I haven't heard about popcorn... I hope the knit sweaters aren't as slim as last year...that's one reason I held off. I don't know if I'd have to size up or just pass on them altogether. They look nice though...
