    Should shirt cuffs be snug or loose?

    The snug cuff helps keep the sleeve in place when you raise your arms, for example. So you don't have to adjust it all the time. In my opinion snug cuffs look better on (semi)formal dress shirts, looser cuffs look better on casual shirts. I also think that it is not a big deal to button any...

    The Japanese Repro Clothing Thread (Real McCoys, Freewheelers, Etc.)

    I wrote to RMC UK and they were able to get anything I wanted from RMC JP and sent it to me in about 2 weeks.

    The Japanese Repro Clothing Thread (Real McCoys, Freewheelers, Etc.)

    I guess the "cheap seam" finish on RMC jacket is on purpose to somehow mimic the finish of the original M-65 jacket finish. You might not like it but I think it is rather an aesthetic intention than quality issue. The same goes for the fabric itself. The RMC's aim was to produce something that...

    The Japanese Repro Clothing Thread (Real McCoys, Freewheelers, Etc.)

    If this is the photo of jacket you will get then it is definitely the previous RMC M65 model (MJ9115), not the current one (MJ22107) with updated fit.

    The Japanese Repro Clothing Thread (Real McCoys, Freewheelers, Etc.)

    It depends what do you prefer. I had RMC M65 for 4 years and sold it because I got military issued M65 by Alpha Industries from 1972 in mint condition. Regarding comparison between the two I would say that RMC M65's body silhouette is modernized aka slimmed as well as sleeves (they are wide...

    The Japanese Repro Clothing Thread (Real McCoys, Freewheelers, Etc.)

    New models (e.g. 220 and others introduced in 2022/2023) are true to size by western standards as they are significantly larger than previous corresponding models with the same size number.

    The Japanese Repro Clothing Thread (Real McCoys, Freewheelers, Etc.)

    Here is my Nelson after one and half year of regular wear. Mine is also size 40 and fits me in similar way as it fits to you. I think its sizing is more for "western market" than for "japanese market" with the latter of which you usually have to size up. The jacket pattern with its simplicity...

    Pitti Uomo 105 - the pictures, the styles

    I would say that Peter basically became one of the peacocks of this Pitti 105. He would blend in with his outfits at Milano Fashion week.

    Black blazer for going out downtown?

    Good suggestion, black corduroy in thinner wale is also very good choice IMO. I've ordered 12 wale black corduroy from Brisbane Moss for my next blazer / sport coat when i saw The Anthology 'Black' Lookbook few weeks ago.

    The Official Dieworkwear Appreciation Thread

    I think if you want to calculate total tax paid to state you need to take into consideration the total employer cost (the total cost of employee work), i.e. according your link: 328550 - 250000 = 78550 (paid to state by employer) + 131147 (employee contribution) = 209697 SEK total paid to...

    Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread

    No offense intended, but by posting photos from Instagram you are creating some confusion in this thread as (my guess) most people who follow it assume the poster has direct first hand experience with the stuff he posted and therefore can provide other useful information besides "beautiful color...

    The Overcoat Thread

    I agree. I am thinking of having my tailor make a wool lining for my overcoat, so that i can use it in wider range of temperatures. Inspiration comes from my other overcoat which is a Korean War cotton sateen with thin tight weave wool liner. Unlined, it can be used as a spring/autumn trench...

    Black blazer for going out downtown?

    Just ignore the "navy" recommendations, I think most here don't understand your point about a "stylish" jacket you need. I think something like this (could be SB too) might be perfect for you: A glossy black wool cashmere blend from Piacenza:

    The Japanese Repro Clothing Thread (Real McCoys, Freewheelers, Etc.)

    Thanks for your report. It's up to you, but personally I would wait with another orders a little bit as I would need much more time (and wears) to know if I like some stuff or not.

    Interesting, I've never noticed that. I've just checked A&S bespoke gallery and indeed some front panels on their db jackets are at the angle and some are straight.
