Oh wow thanks. Do you guys use a number of these for your models? I quite like the Sigaretta option
Nope. We never used any shoulder construction with a pad in it. I could see sigaretta work well on a tuxedo, but I personally would not want to wear anything with a pad - it just feels weird after years of wearing unpadded shoulders

I hope everyone had a chance to snag what they wanted in the mid-season promo, but as the name implies there is still more of this season to go!

Some really nice suede and leather stuff landed from Valstar, starting with a restock of the unlined butterscotch suede Valstarino. It kind of all comes back to this one, doesn't it?

We've also got this new zippered style with a very handsome collar and some really lovely paneling in the back that plays off the slightly Western yoke. Buttery soft unlined lamb suede :drool:

Anothre new zippered style is their riff on an old biker jacket from the archives, in soft Nappa lamb. This one is lined, has great hardware, and really is just super, super luxurious, even for Valstar (so that's saying something).

Merz packs!

Triples makes it safe. Triples makes it best.

And now you, too, can have triples of the Nova. And the Road Runner.

20240419365.jpg 20240419377.jpg 20240419386.jpg

Got some restocks of some old friends (in case you scratched or dented one) but if that deal goes through we also have some new triples to work with:

1950s in a natural color cotton

Merz_b_Schwanen_Made_in_Germany_Spring_Summer_2024_SS24_Loopwheel_Special_box_set_of_3_1950s_c...jpg

And our seasonal pack which includes the new "Classic Green" color

Merz_b_Schwanen_Made_in_Germany_Spring_Summer_2024_SS24_Loopwheel_Classic_three-thread_346_swe...jpg

Of which we also picked up the 346 crewneck of.

Some more Doppiaa has arrived, and I really like the color story that this week in particular brings. It feels very Michael Graves or something. Like the Portland Building.

I'll kick things off with this trio of knit short sleeve shirts in cotton. jewel tones but not too saturated. Great collar, too.

Doppiaa_Made_in_Italy_Spring_Summer_2024_SS24_Aalfeo_short_sleeve_crewneck_in_lilac_linen_with...jpg

Linen knit tee with some cool piping to set it apart. Combined with the design of the cuffs and hem it has a pretty retro feel to it, but I guess we've come to expect (and embrace) that with these Doppiaa drops.

Gotta love some gauze. Flapped chest pockets are a nice touch on this one and make it something that would look really cool worn open as well.

And something a little different as far as polos go - really unique striated cotton, very open collar, and an extra long placket that brings it into popover territory. I think this one carries a lot of attitude with it that isn't immediately apparent.

Aantioco pleated trousers are back, made up in a herringbone cotton that adds a little extra texture for such a classic color.

And our last easy pants are nice and light, cut in a pretty open and crisp linen and cotton.

As mentioned, all of these colors play really nice with each other so it's fun to try things on in your head even with only a few styles like this.

This gives me more time to show you what's in store!

LEJ is back, with CUTTS x 3 all in a striped cotton voile. Peak LEJ to be fair.

And for some layering, we picked up the Cat Posh Plage in a nice open linen:

An Irrational Element is back, and we're seeing the addition of some special fabrics like Kala cotton from India as well as indigo dying.

This is the artists shirt, nice and boxy and cut in a heavyweight linen waffle full of body and texture.

The vintage naval zipped popover returns in ecru ramie, but we also have two more of this great shape:

A super lightweight tropical wool that can be set up with the side tab trousers:

An_Irrational_Element_Spring_Summer_2024_SS24_Vintage_popover_zip_shirt_in_indigo-dyed_Kala_co...jpg

As well as an indigo-dyed checked Kala cotton from India.

In another indigo checked Kala cotton we have some pleated shorts,

While the side-tab shorts are in that amazing indigo washed Ramie from the earlier popover.

More kala cotton, this time undyed in these double pleated straight leg guys

The last Kala cotton piece is double layer and is Kai's take on a Western, vegetable dyed and with a really rich color from that. Lovely stuff.

That Plage coat is enticing! Like a Labora with the dials cranked on all the details. I hadn't seen that on their website so far--there was a green herringbone one but not a linen.

And that IE western is very, very nice. It's hard for me to tell whether it has a soft, felted texture or something more like denim?
