Dunoons are always made from bonded cotton, correct?
Dunoons are sometimes offered in other materials. I've seen them in nylon, for example.
Bonded cotton. I wouldn't want to bastardize the legendary Mack.
I do think that people tend to exaggerate a little bit about the shortcomings of Macks though. Nigel Cabourn uses it for the Cameraman jacket and having two of those + a Mack raincoat, I think it's awesome. A hardy material, the tweed of raincoats. If people are looking for an ultralight poly shell, this is not it. But we will have that as well (from Pedaled).
First wear on my new Butteros! Thanks Kyle and team for your hospitality last week and great meeting you and checking out the goods in person. Look forward to more purchases!
Any plans to restock this bad boy, particularly in a 16? http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/index.php/t-mason-blue-stripe-oxford-shirt-spread-collar-1764.html
need mazz shirts in non-oxford
NMWA should the company to come up with an appropriate term to replace "popover". Something. Anything.
Even if they were in fantastic, lust worthy material, made by Attolini, with shirred shoulders, hand made gussets, yaddyadda, and I desired one fully - I couldn't bring myself to press the [purchase] button if the cart contains the word "popover".
Please consider; I don't think I'm the only one who has an unreasonable and unexplainable resistance to the term.
Actually, now that I think about it - even if you rechristen them something that's acceptable I think I'll still always have "popover" in the back of my mind and it will ruin it for me.
Yes, yes; some say I am wound too tight.
Pull over? I like popover fine.
I see... Umm...okay. English is my second language so I must be missing something here...
That said, I'm open to suggestions. Inglese calls it polo shirt. But I take it that a polo shirt in shirting fabric is called a popover, no? Is there another name? Tunic shirt?
I was going to call BS on the worry over 'popover' but I had the same aversion when I picked my first one up.
I still hate the name but I keep it to myself . . . . ( in shame maybe ) but my second thought is - NMWA calls it
by summer, popover will equate to jcrew and, crudely put, No Man ain't no jcrew.
thanks for your time
I'm not particularly worried about whether something is called a popover. And if it does distress you, do you have to say it a lot in order to wear it? How about calling it a "shirt?"
novel idea. no sir, repeating it multiple times doesn't help
Baked goods, sure. Mens clothing, not so much.

A popover is unusual enough in the wild that it should have its own eccentric name. The strange word correlates with its infrequent appearance.
By the way, do you want to know what's square? The "pocket square." Can you bring yourself to say that word in mixed company? It's the clothing equivalent of drinking Coca-Cola with a straw. If you need further evidence of its dismal qualities, just think about how it gave birth to the execrable "pocket circle," a doily by any other name. Along with the dreaded "V-zone," of the 1980s, these dorky shape words have got to go. I thought I left them in my middle school geometry textbook, but here they are all over again.
We can rechristen the pocket square a "je ne sais quoi" -- when someone asks about that, you can just look at it, pull it out, twirl it in the air like a pom-pom and say, in an uninterested sort of way, "Oh, this? This is just a little je ne sais quoi." Then you stuff it back in your pocket, bid adieu, and hasten to the nearest men's bathroom to nervously reshape, repuff, and fix the points. Snap a picture in the mirror, crop out the head, and post it to your Tumblr and you're back in action. Here's looking at you, playboy.
Popover? Really? Wound too tight for sure.
