post #14071 of 14782
Here are the fit issues I'm running into. (With mafoofan-style doodles)

I was a little taken aback when I unboxed these. They seemed a little undersized compared to my C&J's in terms of width and height.

Might just keep these and see how they break in. They will feel a lot different once my feet "sink in" to the leather footbed. There should also be some stretching in the uppers.

Any words of encouragement? (Or caution?)

Here's a picture of my foot vs. the two semi-lasted shoe trees. C&J feels like a better fit

^^ I have nothing useful to contribute, other than to say I like the grain of the Vass lasts better. And, that be some serious pebblin' action on the Vosh.

I know that doesn't help, but it's all I got.

Hah glad to know my thoughts weren't totally unsubstantiated. The construction looked really really similar!

Thanks.

Ordered a tie from Gianni at PC that will work nice with the shirt.
I have a few different pieces to wear it with. However, I plan on busting it out for the first time to a friends wedding this summer. I am wearing it with a grey Sartorio, cuffed linen/cotton suit and, probably, black Chetwynd wingtips. Maybe a lapel flower pin same colour as the stripes.
Haven't decided on the tie and links yet. see how I feel on the day.


The pics of those VDR shirts don't do them justice. The fabrics are lovely. One is actually slate blue! They are the washed casual line, with just hand attached sleeves and mouche's. I have others that are on par with Borrelli imo. I have become a big fan of their shirts, although they do come up really small.

I would be too afraid to wear those. They are a work of art!

Thanks, guys. I really like them as well. The way that they look when the sun hits them is just stunning.

BEAUTIFUL Shirt. Is it Custom and may i ask from where?
post #14084 of 14782
Thank you, I am quite proud of these purchases. Ironically, this shirt is RTW. Still, I am very pleased with the fit and it is my third one from them in a couple of short weeks. It is supposedly a very limited run by Castangia just to prove a point about their craftsmanship. I purchased from Austin Hauck in the Denver, CO area. The importer for the United States is Greiner's which is located in Tampa, FL. We have been anticipating the arrival of these shirts for quite some time and more are still arriving from Italy.
 
Also, they can/will do custom made for a premium with what I believe is a minimum of 3 to order. I tried one on and did not find extra alterations to be necessary is why I chose RTW.

Forgive the crappy phone photo, but if this doesn't turn you on I don't know what will. I posted this photo a while back when I first picked up the blue twill Castangia shirt.
