Anyone know if any of their new shirts have 20"+ shoulders and 26.5"+ sleeves?

I don't see that blue plaid in the peasant online shop - is it phone order only or have they not received the goods?

thanks

Phone order for now. It takes some time to get proper pictures and measurements before they put them online. Edit: They're all online now.

Well, oddly enough, Peasant states the reverse plaid work shirt is 100% cotton. Weird. Either Peasant or the Japanese site Eggplant Yumetenpo was wrong. But I can see the logic in what you said, Tim.

I think Eggplant maybe got it wrong - all of the other .jp sites are saying that it's 100% cotton. Weird though.

Yeah, you may be right. Takanna says it's 100% cotton as well. Cool.

+1. I was told by Angelo (when asking whether they made anything waterproof) that they'd never make anything out of hi-tech materials. So it makes sense that the shirt's 100% cotton.

I wonder if they've ever considered waxed cotton though (for waterproofing). It's not exactly high tech.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. BTW guys, if you want to catch some low-res pics of EGFW08 @ Pitti Uomo, check out Daiki's blog on the Nepenthes website. Fur-Collar Pea Coat! Reminds me of Robert Geller's Fur Collar Prussian Coat (@ Stel's).

It looks like there's a belt attached to it though, so maybe a trench coat of some sort?

TNT Blu (in Canada) now has a couple of small pictures up on their new blog of their first shipment: http://www.tntblu.net/

I like the plaid waistcoat.

Another excerpt:
"It was our feeling that we wanted to go beyond the editorial component and it's always been our dream to devise a mentoring program where the winner would get to work with a great American company like Levi's."

Seems like a sham. And a mentoring program? None of the guys nominated are interns.

Isn't there a Barney's location in Atlanta? They'll usually carry Engineered Garments, but it varies by location - you could always get a sales associate to get stock from other Barney stores too. Same with Bloomingdale's as well.

I would like the fabric, but the fit is pretty bad on that guy modeling them.
