Should I or shouldn't I buy... (clothing item)? - Page 2838

Yeah. Maybe if they redo their peacoat in a shorter length. There's also that Juncus I'm wanting @sipang. Just unsure how I'll wear it open.

The Leder is cut like a peacoat but it's super soft so much more comfortable and easy to wear

Keep or return? RW Dark Gray Suede Postmans (looks like navy in certain light)

Keep.  Dye them black when you get sick of the color.

Are these the "navy" from Club Monaco or is there somebody else selling suede postmans?

shoes are good you may keep, but considering shade you may think twice

^ I already have a pair of the RW Postmans in black leather. I'm a big fan of the shape, but the color is throwing me off.

 

I'm questioning how I can wear these (what colors, etc.). Black top + jeans + these shoes?

Not sure if you got the shoes yet... but I do like the Olive.

Ignore the styling. This is actually very similar in look/cut it seems to a Cabourn cardigan. Is this site any good? Why so cheap? Paging @dieworkwear

I was going to order a sweater from them about two years ago, but never got around to it.

From what I understand, most of their sweaters are machine made, but with hand finished seams. I assume that means they're hand linked. They also have a small line of handmade Arans, which is what I was thinking of ordering. By handmade, they mean they're handknit, not handloomed (if that matters to you). Handloomed being different from automated machines; handknit being someone using two knitting needles. From what I've seen, handknit sweaters are lot more textured than machined or handloomed knits. Depending on the design, the stitches can be more intricate as well, since handknitting lends itself to more knitting techniques than what a machine can execute.

I assume the wool is "traditional," which means scratchy. Only Inis Meain, as far as I know, makes luxury-end knits for the international market. Not necessarily a bad thing, as I like scratchy knits, but it's not the luxuriously soft stuff that you might pick up at Barney's or whatever.

From what I've seen, the fits look better than the online photos might suggest. Here's someone at AskAndy in one of their handknit Arans.

Regarding that Cabourn cardigan, I think I know which one you're talking about. I tried it on once at Unionmade. Really thick and heavy, somewhat scratchy (as the photos look). Kind of felt the design was a little too dad-ish, so I passed, but it was a nice piece.

try to keep the collar up, but it gets pretty floppy, from my experience. best for cooler fall weather. like 50s-60s.
