    Some Merola glove questions:

    1. I wear a medium-sized glove. I measured my right-hand under the knuckles and excluding the thumb to be 8.5". Should I go down to size 8 or up to size 9? I assume it's the latter, but want to confirm.

    2. Significant differences between carpincho and peccary, if any?

    Thanks for the help.

    1. Please also measure the length of your hand (wrist hinge to tip of middle finger). It may be the tie-breaker
    2. Peccary is softer, smoother and pores are small. Carpincho is dryer, feels like suede and pores are bigger with the distinctive pattern that makes carpincho so boss. I'd say that carpincho looks a bit cooler but peccary is softer to wear.

    A street tough who is quite reasonably concerned about getting a pull in the knit liner of his Belgian coat.

    I think that automatically elevates him to street boss.

    I have trouble telling those funny little countries apart, but is Hamsterdam in Belgium?

    Sorry to interrupt, but I have a Formosa question. I picked up the Fox flannel suit a couple of months ago, after trying a couple of sizes. I got it in 48, although I normally wear 40R US. I was very pleasantly surprised by how well the 48 seemed to fit me. I just needed to take the waist in slightly. So this got me fairly excited about Formosa, leading to some additional orders. I've been away over the holidays, and I've just returned to find the black and white houndstooth suit waiting for me. It is, of course, beautiful. But the fit is noticeably slimmer. I think it still works for me, but the shoulders are less relaxed, and I did not need to have the waist taken in at all.

    So I wondered if anyone else has seem fit variations in Formosa suits. Is this to be expected with the level of hand stitching? Or it is attributable to the different shoulder construction of the two suits? The Fox flannel is done in spalla camicia, and the houndstooth is spalla cadente morbida. The next question will be whether we should expect the fit to be at all different with the linen and summer weight fabrics.
