    There are definitely drawbacks to raw denim, namely (1) it's rather stiff in the first few wears, and (2) the indigo can bleed on lighter surfaces/fabrics when rubbed :)uhoh:). But the advantages of seeing it fade naturally and conform to the wearer's body far outweigh these IMO.

    As somebody who has spent the past 3.5 years of using my weekends to develop fades on my APC NS and am now working on a new pair, I can say that the effort is worth it.

    Raw is the way to go, though that means I can imagine having 2 raw at max, it takes too long to get the fed giving I'm wear jeans only once a week usually

    I know it's probably a bit too early to ask, but Greg - do you know if you'll be getting any more Talarico umbrellas with different patterns? I already have the green/ yellow and blue/ white dotted canopies, and would like something different. Any possibility of stripes in the future?

    Greg, further to the discussion about suit sizes, if I may...

    One of the other annoying things about buying RTW suits is the fact that the assumption is usually that a 38 chest means a 32 waist, or a 36 means 30 etc. In the read world, we know this isn't true for most people. I'm 36S with a 32 waist, and too many suits are perfect in terms of the jacket but the trousers don't fit and cannot be made to fit because too many manufacturers don't leave enough fabric to alter a pair by two inches in the waist (plus the equivalent changes needed in the seat). What I am hoping is that all your suits will either:

    1. have the necessary material to accomodate alterations of this kind to the trousers; or
    2. be available as separates.

    Yes, we will definitely be getting more umbrellas from them and can add to the canopy patterns based on what rolls of fabrics Mario has in store.

    Totally out of curiosity but are you a regular in most brands? I think Bigskipp is like 6'4+. I'm at the lower end of the R but I don't think I own anything in S, unless you count Thom Browne or asian brands.

    Cheers, Greg. Thanks for the additional photos. The knits look fantastic, as usual. Hmm, I don't pay attention to too many brands these days, but I am curious as to whether or not you might have some more casual jackets, like those from Boglioli. It's good to see you're carrying Big John denim. For overcoats, perhaps Norwegian Rain? I may be more on the casual side of what you're going for, but I'm still looking forward to your launch.

    For casual jackets, we have a number of models from Oliver Spencer (I've always had a sweet spot for his aesthetic and sensibility, marrying traditional English tweeds and cuts with a more relaxed and contemporary styling) and a couple from ts(s) as well. We didn't buy Norwegian Rain (although I was very intrigued by it when I saw the coats) but we have Stutterheim raincoats, which I fell in love with, some beautiful parkas from Esemplare and blousons and down coats from Valstar.

    It depends on the maker/cut - usually L for tailored clothing but the R from Formosa are long enough for me for example.
