    ^ Hopefully on the soft side, especially since this dude is rubbing his glasses with the chambray. [​IMG]


    Not sure I'd use any of their pocket squares/hankerchiefs on glasses as they're (IMO) too rough and could scratch the surface.

    Chambray is pretty soft after a few washes. I've had mine for years and clean my sunglasses with it all the time.

    Our friends Sandy & Emil Corsillo over at The Hill-Side have recently released a video that gives us a peak into the creation of one of their most unique fabrics: the Old Virginia "Modified Herringbone". Combined with a video they made last year showing the weaving process, they offer an amazing look into the process behind the product.
    [​IMG] The first video shows us "Old Bob the Weaver" and his vintage 1939 Crompton & Knowles W3 shuttle loom. Bob's family has been weaving in rural Virginia since the 1870's. We follow the story of the yarn as it is woven while Bob demonstrates his expert knowledge of the intricate machine. A very cool insight into the production behind the accessories we carry!

    The second, more recent video, follows Sandy and Emil's journey as they travel back to visit Bob at his home once again. Volvo lent them a car and film crew to make the trip, and although they make some detours, we get to see both the weaving of the fabric and the sewing of some ties. The Old Virginia fabric is one of the most unique and interesting we've ever carried, and these videos are definitely worth a look.

    Would The Hill-Side low top sneakers be a comparable fit to CP achilles lows? I'm usually a 39 in CP - around a 6.5 to 7 in almost everything else with Nike being a 7.5.

    Would I fit best in a 6 or 7 with The Hill-Side low tops?

    Does anyone know if the size chart for the "standard hill-side shirt" is pretty accurate for most of the button downs and flannels? I'm always hesistant when I click on "size measurements for this product" and its the same in inches across the board as the previous 5+ shirts I looked at lol I've been scouring the forums for fit reviews and sizing on Hill-Side shirts and can't seem to find a single one. I know they are pretty popular when it comes to unique fabrics for accessories but you would think with all the options they have out there someone would post up a critique on at least one of them lol.
