Are those Stephan Schneider shirts meant to be worn tucked in or untucked?
I agree with others that outerwear this year was strong. My rabbit fishtail and merino are some of my go to coats out the door. In that vein, I really have to compliment NMWA on introducing me to Sage de Cret. They've quickly become my favorite brand and I never would have known them if they hadn't appeared in the shop.
A badass shearling would be an instant buy from me. I've always wanted a Cabourn costal command but they are getting increasingly difficult to find state side.
For murl, Greg, or anyone else with the Lorenzo Eidos - if they wear short, would you recommend sizing up (R to L) if you are in between lengths?
My preferred length is 31", and that splits the R (30.4") and L (31.7") almost in half.
Damn you strong Dollar (gone up 20+% since jan 1st 2014)! Had my eye on the Eidos brown & charcoal mini-houndstooth suit, but adding in shipping to Sweden and another 20-25% of customs and taxes, there's just no way :'(
Yes I would def recommend L.
If anyone is interested in an Eidos MTO SC or suit through NMWA, let me know. I won the RMHC auction and have the F/W swatch books. I need to send them back to Eidos today, but I have a bunch of pics of nice swatches if anyone is interested.
If throwing out ideas of additional brands I would like to suggest Universal Works. Their last few seasons have been really good. I think they have very good styling, use of high quality fabrics, would represent a good price point and don't have much distribution in the US. I think the NMWA could do some really interesting collabs as well
I'm eyeing those shearling-lined Heschung Zermatt boots. I think consensus is to size down 1/2 a size from US brannock but that's sold out. Wondering if I could go TTS or down a full size on these. Just a bad idea?
Not specific to F/W but either a second shirtmaker in addition to Inglese, and/or an option to do pre-order, MTO or GMTOs from Inglese. All handmade is not important to me personally, great fabrics and mix of collar styles are.
I tried a half size down and a full size and sent both of them back. The full size down was definitely too small and even the half was pretty tight to the point where it was uncomfortable. I would have gone TTS but they were out of stock by that point. I think zissou has a pair so you might ask him as well.
I don't see too many pics of them around here, but I really dig the Esemplare stuff.
The fishtail parka is one of the best pieces I picked up this season. Would love to see more from Esemplare next F/W.
I own both the ripstop sweatshirt and reverse seam sweater. I really like both pieces
