    I was thinking more along the lines of 150-200 for a wool sweater with MTO. Really depends on the fabric and construction.

    I reached out to him late last year about suits. He only does MTM suits, not MTO I believe. They'll run you about 1k or so... he definitely has a lot of different suggestions.

    More interested in cardigans than sweaters for me.

    Did you get the short sleeve or the long sleeve? I got the short sleeve in black and what I got was dark green. I e-mailed Mauro and he said the "black" is actually called "Raven" and is a black green color. And then he just said "If you don't like return it and I will refund you" so matter-of-factedly I was taken a little aback. So this is NOT a mistake? Why would you advertise a dark green color as black, especially if it's not a pre-order item without any real product photos. And I am just told to return it if i don't like it?

    Whatever, Mauro's customer service has been otherwise amazing but this one was a head scratcher for sure.

    I've had at least one of every version of wvg long sleeve henleys since winter 2014, and these are the best so far imo. The fabric feels fucking amazing to wear, the fit and details are great

    I took a chance on the henleys again and they seem pretty long. Anyone else agree? Maybe it's cause I sized up since last year's were really tight. Fabric is great though.

    I got three Henleys last season and the red was too short, black was too long, and indigo was perfect. Seems pretty inconsistent but other than that the quality is there, aside from 4 button exploding on my red Henley.

    I've got some old Henley's from maybe 3 years ago that the buttons just started going on. I need to get that fixed.

    I agree, mine is pretty long too. However, they've always been long for me. The mediums are pretty tight in the arms and chest for me, so I don't think I could size down successfully. I only briefly tried mine on, but it didn't feel as snug as last years (or the year before, I can't remember. Black and pink are the colors of the old ones). But I think it may be due to fabric differences and the amount of times I've worn and washed the old ones.

    I'd rather have it be a touch too long than a touch too short. Any tailor can shorten it for you for probably $5 or less. I wear mostly higher rise trousers, but I own one pair of jeans that have a relatively low rise, and whenever I wear them I'm thankful for the extra length on the henleys.

    Yeah, I'm not super worried about it. The extra bit of length on the bamboo Sonora stuff actually makes for a pretty good drape!

    Yeah, fabric this year is pretty stretchy, which I like.

    Did everyone get their avocetta tees? I ordered one with the oppossum and got the oppossum in November, reached out to Mauro and he said the avocetta was delayed still. Wasn't sure if others got theirs and it's just me.

    I haven't received the avocetta yet either. I do think three was one person that got it in this thread, but not sure.

    I haven't gotten the Avocetta and I don't think anyone has. Originally it was some sort of double fabric weaved together. In the shrink tests, the fabric bunched up all weird so Mauro had to send it back. He's in the process of getting some replacement fabric I believe.

    In the new blog post he says he's going back to the avocetta factory and the button-up factory (seems like there will be at least one reckoning).

    Yeah, no one has gotten the Avocetta.

    Did anyone order the Verbena tee and get it?

    Have people received their fall flannel preorders yet? I received tracking info for my flannel + henley order, but it hasn't updated and I wasn't sure if it was waiting because the flannels hadn't been delivered.
