I was wondering if there's any 'official' way to tell if a particular Zegna pant is made by Incotex. I see the usual signs (belt prong loop, blue band in back, made in Portugal/Romania) on my pants, but still want to confirm that it is the case.

Different models have different lasts. Their balmorals however, (and correct me if I 'm wrong gents) are mostly in the 5 last. My strands are in the this same last and they go tts with park aves.post #23811 of 2914310/5/13 at 12:39amQuote:Originally Posted by donjuan17
I beg to differ. I have lots of experience owning and buying leather and denim jackets and always size down one and even two whole sizes. You are completly correct in your assumption that your leather should have a tight fit. There's nothing wide than owning baggy leather ( have you seen leather jackets that add a gut? Not appealing).
Just the .02 cents of a biker.
Indeed. As a fellow biker, I can personally vouch for the need for a jacket to fit closely.
There is the practical issue with a bike jacket of not wanting clothing that catches air and drags and flaps in the wind: noisy, uncomfortable, and even slows you down. And of course, a bike jacket is protective clothing: not much good if it rides up under your armpits leaving your body exposed if you have a low-side. That's why real bike jackets are normally tighter, and rather stiff and/or reinforced. "Fashion" bike jackets, not.Quote:
If you mean about leather quality, there is no such thing as "Topman leather", as they don't make anything themselves. Just assume it's very cheap. If you mean about fit, then as we're talking about a cheap fashion garment rather than an actual bike jacket, the sizing is hard to guess. But my guess is that a jacket, even made of leather, aimed at young men with limited budgets, is going to fit most slender teenaged types pretty true to size, and already be close-fitting by design. Also, even if the leather stretches, the polyester lining won't. I suspect too small is too small. But maybe if you enquire they can give you a definition of what "small" and "extra small" mean in their sizings, with chest, waist and shoulder measurements. You can be certain they have a standard, and it might be different to another brand you're used to.post #23812 of 2914310/5/13 at 5:28ampost #23813 of 2914310/5/13 at 7:34ampost #23814 of 2914310/5/13 at 9:40pmpost #23815 of 2914310/6/13 at 9:01amQuote:
If you were planning to walk around in your hometown taking pictures, and it was forecast to be an average of 27 Celsius, what would you wear?
Wear that.post #23816 of 2914310/6/13 at 9:07amQuote:
If you're going to do the tourist thing, bring a jacket in case the weather drops when visiting the big Buddha. Also bring a small light umbrella in case if rains erratically.
The most important thing is to bring sneakers that you are comfortable wearing (broken-in sneakers are best) because you don't want to develop blisters. I don't know how your weight fluctuates or how fast is your metabolism, but bring "fat" pants if your group is eating all day because I'm guessing you will since HK has amazing food - from street food to 5-star restaurants (HK offers great food at pretty much any price point / budget).
Another tip that doesn't pertain to your question, but just in case you find it useful. Chung King Mansion offers the cheapest currency conversions. Just go towards the middle/back for the cheapest rates.post #23817 of 2914310/6/13 at 11:02am
I just got my first pair of chukka boots, the Loake Pimlicio, and am not sure if they fit properly: If I tie them tightly, the feet don't move and I've got about a thumb's width of toe room. The width is fine too: I can feel my foot sitting on the leather on both sides. However, on top of the shoe, there is a few millimeters of air between my foot and the leather. When walking the shoe creases at that point. I can also easily flex my toes when wearing them. Is this normal or are they too big?post #23818 of 2914310/6/13 at 11:41ampost #23819 of 2914310/6/13 at 11:49am
