Thanx for all the kind words about our shirts, as well as all your PMs to me regarding the loss of my mother this weekend. Just a brief reply to some of the technical questions, then I'll let Chuck fill in the details when he returns from Rome. In general, our plan is to do a MTM program ASAP, but we may continue to offer a limited selection of RTW. Stitch count:
I think it was around 16-18 on the generation 1. Â We weren't pleased with that, but every time we've tried to increase that to the mid-twenties, the samples just didn't look right on that particular fabric, as Alex mentioned. Â On the next generation - if indeed we opt to do a second generation of RTW - we will get the tightest stitch appropriate for your fabric of choice. Collar:
Believe it or not, the current collar was pretty conservative for Italian style when we made them. Â The next round will have a less dramatic collar, but will likely be point or semi-spread rather than spread. Retail presence:
Â Soon. Â Size availability:
Â Due to space constraints, we're unlikely to carry any atypical size combos in the immediate future. Â MTM program will be your best bet. Â It will only cost a little more than the RTW, but will take a bit longer to receive. But, for your cash and patience, you'll have a MUCH larger selection of fabrics, collar styles, cuff styles, etc. Hmm. Â Can't recall anything else right now, but wanted to acknowledge the questions since the company mouthpiece is most likely full of caprese e vino right now.
