    I've always found your suiting/jackets/pants some of the best quality for the money, but (dress) shirting always seemed to be on the expensive side, I wouldn't mind seeing something in the $100-150 range.

    Well made in Italy dress shirts with good fabrics at $100 retail just can't compute. Anyone who had shirts made in Alumo, Grandi/Rubinelli or Albini fabrics knows how much the shirting alone costs. Add decent wages, transport, duties, etc.. and it is simply not a reality.

    There are other places on the internet to buy $100 shirts - and it's great, they're needed. But this is not really what we're about.

    I actually think our Inglese shirts are incredible value for all the work and quality materials that go into them.

    I completely agree.

    Can't blame a man for dreaming though :D.

    I love the Inglese, and I may be ordering a whack of them tomorrow.

    I'll gladly keep buying the Inglese. I love those shirts...the details and fabric are amazing. I plan on slowly replacing all my shirts with them....5 down, 20 to go.

    what about nonnative or.....dare i say...visvim

    considering that you guys have the best pricing model on internet, hands down, i'll be curious to see how much you can get those products in for...

    ...everyone else just seems to add like 40% to the price, which is a tough pill to swallow considering how good the $ is vs the yen right now

    I just wish Inglese would fit me like Mazzarelli..

    Inglese in different cuts/fits is an idea. If there were enough of critical mass of people who liked the Mazzarelli fit over Inglese.

    This would be a nice get. I, too, love the quality/craftsmanship of the Inglese, but don't have the physique for the cuts. Mazz was a nice alternative.

    Moi, aussi. Being a constitutionally cheap bastard, I get the initial reaction to the price point. But they're well worth it, particularly when you think about the the price difference between amortized over the life of the shirt.
    I'm not going to make assumptions about anyone's particular financial circumstances, but the price difference is comparable to what some people here would drop without thinking about it picking up the tab (or maybe just chipping in for one's own share) for a good meal out with friends or a date . . .

    On shirts, is there any possibility of a bigger buy from Camoshita? I love everything about the brown striped poplin I picked up last season, and they come in a bit under Inglese. Too much potential for duplication/dilution?

    Camoshita shirts was a problem for us. The sleeves length was way too short for most people, especially in larger sizes. We'll see if the coming seasons have adjusted that pattern

    I think T/S is a pretty good stand in for Engineered Garments and something not found anywhere I know of.

    I really, really want to know more about that SdC jacket for S/S. It looks really, really cool.
