    What would you wear with the Niche western shirt? What colour of pants would be acceptable? I was thinking jeans but I only have indigo denim so that may look like a wall of blue.

    Its funny that you mention this. I actually have considered whether a 32 might have been better for me. This surprises me, since I'm not sure I have ever worn a size 32. For you, I would suggest the 33.

    Or 5-pocket cords. Faded jeans will work too.

    It hit the mid-60s this weekend here in Omaha so I got to break out the popover for the first time. No chance at an Agnelli look for me, but it sure is a dope shirt.

    No, you could you wear indigo denim. It's commonly referred to as the Canadian Tuxedo.

    Is the popover longer in length than the regular shirt (the new cut that is an inch longer)?

    So black pants would work?


    So something to provide contrast?


    Funny you should mention that...

    Thanks guys, I'm going to think about this.

    Love that Niche shirt. Would have copped at retail in a heartbeat, but it's sized so small. I'm hoping that the Niche Tengo shirt will be more generous, another great looking shirt.

    While we're posting NMWA items in the wild, I wore / posted the EO TO TO Henley on Saturday, so this is what it looks like in action / layered under a shirt:

    Thanks Greg. I haven't had them long, but they sure do get a ton of compliments!

    Jet, I went with a 16.5/42 the same as my "normal" Inglese size. It's definitely cut for a more relaxed look. I washed and then threw it in the dryer on warm. Here are some comparisons for you:
    Popover:
    Shoulders seam to seam: 18.5
    Chest pit to pit: 48
    Length from BOC: 30
    Sleeve from seam to end: 28

    Regular shirt:
    Shoulders: 18
    Chest: 23
    Length: 29
    Sleeve: 36

    Overall it fits more relaxed, and it is longer in the body.



    Newcomer - looks great! It's definitely a nice shirt that is for sure. I noticed that too. When I pulled it out of the dryer, my heart nearly stopped because it looked A LOT smaller, but that was due to the wrinkles. I might add that it irons very easily for linen.



    I can't compare to the new S/S dress shirts, but the F/W stuff, yes it feels a bit longer. In addition to just being longer at the back and front, it's noticeably longer at the sides. I feel like this would stay tucked in very well, whereas my F/W Inglese would come untucked pretty easily throughout the day.

    I've been meaning to reply to this -- I have a similar shirt that I wear a lot, more in the 'Sportswear/Streetwear' mode. Oftentimes I wear it as an overshirt instead of a light jacket (untucked, slightly unbuttoned or fully unbuttoned) over a t-shirt (usually grey) and with either selvage or darker matte denim and sneakers. I was very afraid of the Canadian tuxedo look but as long as the tones are slightly different you should be fine. I get a lot of compliments with it and it is a very versatile part of my sportwear/casual wardrobe.

    In other words: go for it and style it your own way!

    So I took my green linen Rotas to the alterationist today. She said that "it was the most beautiful fabric she's ever seen." Considering that she rarely speaks more than a couple words to me, I thought it was a nice compliment.

    In regards to the S/S Inglese shirts--I have not had experience with the F/W collection, but I find that these shirts are more than long enough. I am wearing mine today, and have not experienced any issues with it becoming untucked.

    Also, I thought I should mention. For some reason or another, the linen Rotas wear a bit smaller in the waist. It is actually a good thing, from my perspective, but I just wanted to note it. It could just be variance from Rota being a fairly small pents manufacturer.

    "alternationist" ?
    I assume that she is board-certified.
