    @lawyerdad Cool. Thanks for the advise.

    Everybody has to choose the same cloth and style, yes (with the option of adding a vest). I am happy to give my advice on different options, but whatever you guys decide on, we can do.

    For styling, I would say no spalla camicia, flap pockets, barchetta, 3r2...notch lapel is the obvious choice, but peak lapel is great looking on this kind of cloth IMHO. Very Anthony Eden:

    @in stitches are you in on this one?

    @unbelragazzo said the hand was nicer on the fox, plus the fox is 'rarer' in a sense, almost never get a good discount on the Fox fabrics, normally too expensive.

    Fox navy wide. 3r2, notch lapels, flap hip pockets, barchetta chest pocket, spalla cadente morbida shoulder. Thoughts on buttons? I agree with unbel's suggestion for the vest: no lapel, two pockets. Can we get some info about the vest measurements? My concern is about the chest and back fitting well.

    Greg (@gdl203) and/or Kyle (@conceptual 4est): Is there any more Niche items expected to drop this season? The Trabajo shirt is great and searching Japanese stockists for FW14 gear (while hoping NMWA would pick up a similar amount of items like SS14) there is so much win in that line for the more adventurous types or the more conservative. For instance, the Gaucho Easy pants (http://www.strato.co.jp/SHOP/Niche-tti-f14-jps-49.html), the Permanente Crew Neck Jacket (http://www.strato.co.jp/SHOP/Niche_tti-f14-jju-67.html), the Peluche Comodo L/S T-Shirts (http://www.strato.co.jp/SHOP/Niche_tti-f14-jcf-24.html) for starters.

    Something tells me this might be all, but I am holding out hope that I'll be able to purchase the above or similar items from you! Take my money, Greg :) NMWA introduced me to this line and I think its outstanding and so well priced for what you get and you're a man that makes things happen. Please make more Niche happen!

    Unfortunately, that's it for this season. We had a couple more things picked up and that we were really excited about - but they were cancelled at the lastinute because of production issues.

    I'm in for the foxes...don't really have a preference as to wide or narrow or navy or grey. will use them all. i think the narrow could be really fun...

    I'm definitely ok with:
    3-roll-2
    spalla cadente morbida
    notch or peak lapel
    barchetta chest pocket
    vest with no lapel and two pockets

    i would really like to see the jacket made with besom (jetted) pockets as opposed to flap pockets. I'm a firm believer that this style of pocket is more elegant and more appropriate on a jacket of this manner. it's not a deal breaker for me...but you all should strongly consider the besom pocket...it is super elegant and worn by the likes of prince charles and sr. liverano.

    this suit will be AWESOME.
