    My experience with soaking the Big John Rare jeans was that they kept their dye well, and the length shrank, but they did not tighten up on me much. They were very loose to begin with and I ended up getting them trimmed up. They remain the most awesome jeans I have, but in the future I would definitely size down on them.

    Do you have a picture of them being worn? I was curious about the fit.

    Navy Buttero sneakers. I'm impressed with how substantial they feel. The off-white sole is perfect.

    Received the blue Mazzarelli oxford and Calabrese forest green dotted wool tie, which has to be the nicest tie I've ever seen. For the Mazzarelli, I will have to have the sleeves shortened and the chest taken in a bit. I plan to wash and draw the cloth in a bit first, but are there any specific care instructions? I was going to cold wash delicate and hang dry before handing off to my tailor.

    Does Inis Meain sweaters shrink? I have a chest size of 42" but like my sweaters a little loose. What size do you recommend?

    I have purchased 2 Mazzarelli shirts and hot washed on delicate and tumble dried. I was hoping to get a bit of shrinkage in the body before taking to my tailor to have sleeves shortened to avoid having to take in the body as well. It did seem to work for me.

    Hi,

    A couple of questions:

    1. Do you think it would be straightforward to have the sleeves shortened on the Pedaled jacket? I was looking at the Pedaled website and the sleeve length for size S is 27.4", which is about 3" too long for me.

    2. Could you post thigh measurements for the Rota trousers for size 46 and 48?

    Also, if anyone who's bought the Rota pants has experience with Howard Yount's US cut, a fit comparison would be great! The HY US-cut fit me perfectly in size 32.

    Thanks very much,
    Hal

    Think you might offer a shirt in a style that stands up well without a tie under a jacket? Would love one like this, high longer collar and double button throat like this:

    Yep, definitely different and not to everyone's taste-- but would like to find one with similar collar height/ taller collar band like it tho. Under a jacket, nearly all my shirt collars curl without a tie

    Peccary gloves coming online soon. They're in the house but need to take photos and set them up on the site.
