    What do you mean by reshaping? Brim or crown?

    If you don't like the brim to wave too much, leave the hat flat on a flat surface for a few days.

    Both - after unfolding the brim and crown both look warped a lopsided. I have tried laying it flat for a couple of days but it still looks like it would benefit from some more robust reshaping

    It's a very soft hat, not a hard blocked hat, so by definition it will not keep a rigid shape.

    If you have a more rigid hat, you can leave the rollable on top of it for a few days.

    At the end of the day, the spirit of the hat is more this:

    Wait, you smell that?
    Any one try drying his Camoshita v neck Polo in the dryer? I know it says to hang dry, but I think mine could benefit from a wee bit of shrinkage cuz its wearing a little more slouchy than I'd prefer. Was wondering if 1. It would actually shrink and 2. Whether drying would mess up the material or the color.

    I would have to order a cream double shawl in a summer fabric (like the one you ran two years ago). I remember it sold out (at least, in popular sizes) within 24 hours. It was one of the few "tux" pieces that I've seen work with something other than the usual formal wear rig.
    I would not want to let that slip away, especially since the future of Eidos and its tailoring is somewhat up in the air.

    I don't want to speculate too much, but my guess is that the brand will hit the reset button starting next fall, so its probably your last shot at things designed by me.

    Are there going to be new Vass models added and restocks (which ones)?

    Is there a NMWA Vass GMTO thread?

    Quick q wrt current season Camoshita shirting (apologies if this has already been covered)
    Will tts give me that slouchy/slightly oversized look?
    Measurements seems to indicate yes but just wanted to be sure since there are big jumps between some sizes

    Yes, they're pretty relaxed overall - be mindful of the sleeve length though and double check that.
