post #586 of 1438

Yes, finally lightweight wool trousers. I've been holding out for those for work. Chinos are explicitly ruled out by our dress code and I figure linen would be pushing it.

 

I as well waffled too long on the overdyes, even with the extension. I wanted to pick up the three I voted for as well as a pair of the trousers, but I also need to buy a new pair of shoes, the aforementioned summer trousers, and to replace some dress shirts, and I figured my wife might actually get a little pissed at me if I just up and dropped like $1k on clothes all at once.

I'm good with the new pre-order system too. I'm sure I'll be disappointed by something I want not reaching the order threshold to get made at some point, but I can totally understand why Mauro is going this direction. I've been amazed by some of the things that have just sat up on the site without selling out in the past. I do agree about extending the order window a bit, it would be nice if it was at least a week - I'm still relieved I was able to get into the sweatpants pre-order today because I needed to add an inch the inseam.

 

I think I'm going to be in for a pair of the linen trousers and the lightweight wool in blue. If we end up with olive as an option for chinos, that may be too difficult for me to pass up. That chino fabric is just so great.

 

I'm really glad to see Mauro cranking out new product offerings, and looking forward to the tees/henleys. We should conspire to pick a U-neck fabric that we can all vote for.

This. Even without bamboo / sorona as a fabric option, I'd like to pick up one or two.

This run of clothing has been amazing. Can't wait to see the shirts.

 

Can I just pay Mauro a retainer to swaddle me in awesome shit year round?

Based on what was listed in the email, I would say either silk-modal or linen-cotton. I think I'm leaning toward the linen-cotton blend, actually, but I could still go either way. Whatever the options end up being, we should try to pick one here so we can consolidate our voting and get something made.

I'm a little skeptical of linen - wondering how well it drape. Silk seems interesting, but durability?

Here's a womens' linen tee from J crew

Seems OK to me, though I suspect that example has been either enzyme washed, or regularly washed a few dozen times. No way new linen is that soft, based on my recent WvG linen shirt.

Worth the break-in period for me. I think I'll be happier long term than with silk.

I think there's definitely precedent for dope tees in all of these fabrics.

 

For linen, you've got Acne's Granville and Everlane's womens' tees, plus maybe Our Legacy.

 

For silk blends, the standby has gotta by Alexander Wang's rayon/silk, which I think would be similar to a modal/silk. And as far as I know, that's one of the most popular lightweight/drapey tees out there. Rick Owens makes a really nice silk blend tee, too.

 

For pure silk, you've got Rick Owens and Saint Laurent as reference points. From a pure looks perspective, I think SL's silk jersey tees are the best thing on the market right now, though the price is obviously ridiculous.

 

I think they'd all be fantastic options, and I'll buy into whatever the group decides on. While I know it might be logistically impractical, I'd love to see swatches of the different fabrics, but barring that, I'd guess that they'd all be light and drapey, with a linen blend having a rougher hand and being a bit more structured at first, pure silk being sleek and flowy, and the silk blend somewhere in the middle. And the pure silk is gonna be stupidly expensive...like, over-$100-per-tee expensive (at least that's what I'd expect...)

 

More important to me, while I'm giving my 2c, is that the fit stays the same or similar to the old bamboo/sorona tees. Part of the reason I love those tees (and own 10 of them) is because of the fabric, but just as much it's because they're the best-fitting tees I've ever worn by a country mile. I've got a very athletic and slim build, and no other tee has ever fit me so well in the sleeves, the shoulders, and the body as WvG. I'd buy tees with that fit in just about any material.

 

EDIT: Was writing this while the blog post went up. And here I was thinking we wouldn't get swatches. Awesome! All the fabrics look incredible, and I'm totally on board with the U-neck choice. These are going to be killer tees.

All awesome. I hope there are some regular colors, I'm not too into the crazy loud shit.

According to the blog post, the modal / silk blend is going to be the winner for u-necks:
Quote:
Finally,we have "Fenice". It's what our slutty little "U-Neck" will be made of. I have just a few meters of this fabric. It's 77% Modal and 23% silk. After doing the math it was the best fabric for the job. It has a superior drape and it doesn't cost 55.00 euro a meter.

The hand is similar to the bamboo sorona. Once, I give it a dye job and some enzymes, this cloth will be beyond soft.

Offhand I'd say that would be my top choice for u-necks out of the fabrics he's sourcing. I'm definitely down for a couple. Hoping for some rad colors. I wouldn't mind burgundy.

IME the drape on modal is pretty awesome. I had a Man of Moods shirt that had both modal and silk in it (there may have been some cotton and rayon as well), and it was one of my favorite fabrics ever. Absurdly soft.

Has anybody gotten the newsletter where it provides an option to vote for the color of the chino? I've been sent the newsletter advertising for the new trousers and the old school funfetti shirts but my newsletter didn't have the option to vote for colors.

I haven't gotten a chino newsletter yet...waiting on it too!  

 

I really need a pair of linen/lightweight dress pants for a beach wedding this summer but i'm not feeling the shades of navy.  I tried a pair of JCrew's slimmest dress pants in a light blue linen color (love the color) but the fit is wonky...the backside is perfect but the front/crotch looks really odd. I think it's an issue with how the pockets sit bc the rise is and other dimensions are really close to my Enzo's.  Not to derail from WvG, but if anyone has suggestions for linen or lightweight dress pants in the $150 range let me know.  I can prob go mtm with Mauro but trying to keep my options open first.

Same. I'm having a hard time getting an idea of the true colors of the fabric swatches. They look pretty dark in color.
