    poorly lit picture of some NMWA items - one or two people asked me for fit pics of the Scye Tuck trousers a while back. The fit is very easy, despite them looking more extreme in product shots. What's hard to capture is the fabric - it's got tons of character, with some subtle slubbiness. It's like a chino twill version of artisanal denim. And the construction details are notably overdone - like a pair of high end English tailored trousers. Wearing with the TSS moleskine shirt jacket from a few seasons back.

    Some new goodies for the weekend.

    Can you feel the warmer weather coming? Linen, hemp, ramie, soy (!) yarns are taking over

    I received those two fabrics as MTM shirts. They will not disappoint.

    Mine's on it's way.

    The color and fabric composition got me instantly. Hemp and soy?

    I had to look on Wikipedia to see about Ramie:
    Ramie is one of the strongest natural fibers. It exhibits even greater strength when wet. Ramie fiber is known especially for its ability to hold shape, reduce wrinkling, and introduce a silky lustre to the fabric appearance. It is not as durable as other fibers, and so is usually used as a blend with other fibers such as cotton or wool. It is similar to linen in absorbency, density and microscopic appearance. However it will not dye as well as cotton. Because of its high molecular crystallinity, ramie is stiff and brittle and will break if folded repeatedly in the same place; it lacks resiliency and is low in elasticity and elongation potential.[6]

    Yea the composition of that shirt made it sound like it would be edible (or smokable).

    It isn't. Either

    Oh darn.[​IMG]

    I have a 100% Hemp Blazer. To my untrained hand it feels more like a thin wool than cotton.

    Very soft.

    Great picks on GRP. I'm glad to see the linen polos made a return. FYI, the product page for the long sleeve blue is screwy -- only seeing the wish list box.

    ^ Those GRP polos are gorgeous. But goodness, what's up with the fit? :confused: The largest size, 6 (XL), has 17.3" shoulders and a 40.9" chest? Sounds more like the dimensions of a small or medium. I'd have bought both the blue and gray, but unfortunately I'll have to pass.

    Brand new Buttero on the streets of Budapest on my way to the Vass shop. These things are so comfy straight out of the box and do not have the break in period that the leather pairs of Buttero usually have.

    I wouldn't be too concerned.
    This is a VI from 2016, in various "stages". (I wear a 41 Inglese for a perfect, not bulky fit.)
    The material has a lot of stretch and bounce to it, is very soft.
    In essence, and Greg said something similar only a few days ago, between the fabric and the person taking the measurement, you'll never get the same result twice. And even at widest below, I didn't pull with any force, could have gone a lot further without effort.

    What did you get? I was there a couple of weeks ago and loved it. I also have those Butteros and they are awesome.
