Circle of Gentlemen RTW

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Looks like this brand is making headway into the US market, and curious if others here have seen them or have insight/personal feedback about the brand?

 

Nordstrom is carrying their shirts, and the fabrics initially caught my eye at the Anniversary sale preview this week. Fabrics are apparently sourced from Italy. Salesman explained they are doing limited runs of shirts with each fabric, which I guess is mostly a marketing strategy and a way to justify their full retail price of $245. Apparently the brand has been making a lot of headway in Belgium and the Netherlands, and other parts of Europe.

 

I picked up one of the 'Talin' model shirts after trying it on and the labeled "trim" fit worked well for me.

For the sale price it seemed like a good way to test the waters with these shirts. The fabric on this particular shirt is a heavier weight weave and seems like it will be a great fall/winter shirt. It has a great hand and drape. Definitely not a straight up dress/business shirt, but more of a hybrid dressy-sport/casual business look. I see it as a versatile piece that could dress up jeans, or be worn with a sport coat. No MOP buttons - looks like all their shirts have this brown horn or plastic?

 

This review from their Pitti Uomo 89 showings has some interpretive commentary about the overall brand's angle:

Ah, yes...like all of us.

 

Time will tell.
