Should I or shouldn't I buy... (clothing item)? - Page 2772

OL



Except I would size up relative to what the model's got going on here.

@BostonHedonist, both seem like perfectly cromulent options. Does either appeal to you more, or can you envision one going better with the stuff you wear on a day-to-day basis? Like, if you wear burgundy pants all the time, I don't know that I'd go with the first pair. OTOH, black might go better with the first pair than the second pair.

^^ yea, their suede shirts are nice. I would probably rather get one with buttons though, but a matter of taste. And perhaps a different color to avoid the super vintage-y look?

I kinda like the color in this case; it looks less uniform than some of the others I've seen and might go well with what I'm wearing most often these days (LVCs + flannel over henley + combat boots or Guidi back-zips).

I'm less sure about the zipper vs. button issue. All else being equal, I'm guessing I'd like a 2-way zipper best? Hard to say.

To be replaced by buttons? Snaps? Toggles? Individual leather ties?

Truly an under-leveraged jacket closure mechanism.

The fit on those OL suede zips are weird AF from my experience. Not sure sizing up will help

Good to know. In that case, I may just take measurements, figure out how I want to tweak them for a better fit, and work with Mauro to have something similar made when the WvG leather jacket project gets up and running next year.

If you have one made, I'd recommend a flap to cover the zipper. That would make it so clean. I have the button holes covered on all the shirts I have made. An under-rated enhancement.

the suede shirts fit slim. i wear a 46-48 in their shirts depending on the style, but a size 50 suede shirt fit well when i tried on the current season model.

I'm looking for a big, cozy, oversized textured knit in a grey or ecru spectrum.

I want the grey gradient from SNS but can't find XXL anywhere which is apparently what I need (at least XL is too small). This is the one: http://nomadshop.net/products/sns-gradient-crewneck-sweater-grey

 

So unless somebody can point me to the grey gradient, here's what I'm considering:

 

Sandro (I don't really know anything about this brand, I get the impression it's a high street brand in the realm of Belstaff? Still looks nice)

 

 

 

 

 

Or if anybody has suggestions? Can't really find any Inis ones that fit the oversized aesthetic, Esk is out of bigger sizes for all the stuff that interests me and Schneider didn't really do any thick, chunky, loose pullovers this season from what I can see. Not sure where else to look.

Maybe our legacy? I tried this on in one of my local SA's and it's pretty cozy due to the alpaca. Color is a lighter gray than on the website I think.

Yeah I tried a 52 in that and the shaggy fleece one and they weren't as substantial as if hoped. Not that I really know what the Sandro one is like but I'm looking for something along the lines of the lemaire yak/merino knits but with a thicker, more interesting texture.

Sandro is a french high street but with slightly higher price points and targets, usually copying Saint Laurent or hype stuff in that vein.
