    The Cantarelli sport coats retail around the $1k mark, with some price variation based on fabrics.

    The cut is clearly different from Formosa's. Cantarelli is an Arezzo-based maker and their cut is more middle-Italian than southern, Still very soft construction but is overall trimmer - chest is cleaner and lapels are less dramatic. The Sartoria Cantarelli jackets in 52 measure 18.1" shoulders, 43.3" chest and 30" length, whereas Formosa's 52 (drop 7) measures 19.3" shoulders, 44.9" chest and 31" length.

    Replace 36 by 48 or shoe size 14 and I think you will have the most logical answer : I just need to stop somewhere. For some products, we do have 36 and 46 because the investment in inventory isn't too difficult, but for high ticket items, it becomes difficult to expand the size range too much as it becomes quite an investment.

    That said, I take all that feedback at heart and will adjust size ranges in future buys based on expressed interest and this kind of feedback.

    Here's a question on sizing then. If you don't carry something in a size, can that specific size be ordered with the next restock? Not sure if such an accommodation would be possible...

    Yes, absolutely. But it can take a while to get products reordered, made and shipped. A vast majority of what we have in store was cut/made to order for us, sometimes from fabrics/materials that are easily sourced but other times from fabrics that can be seasonal at the mills and may not be available for reorder in small quantity.

    A few other products are more standard and not seasonal and are even sometimes in stock at the maker for us to reorder.

    "Shirt bag" (whew, can't forget the R in this product's name...) in canvas and vegetable tanned leather
    Collapsible design for storage; wide opening sized to simply drop stacks of clothes straight from the closet
    Handmade by La Portegna in Andalucia, Spain


    Perfect for those who need to make room in their closet for things other than empty luggage... (like another pair of Vass shoes for example :inlove:)

    Agreed, very cool. Is it sturdy enough to be used as a weekender bag?

    Livng in a city where closet space is scarce, I had looked for (and seen) collapsible or packable bags before (and we have another cool one this fall from Porter that folds into a small pocket). But I had never seen that wide mouth rectangular opening and it's the kind of thing you see and facepalm right away thinking "why hasn't anyone done that before??"
    Oh yes, it's sturdy. The bottom is all veg tan leather so you can put it down anywhere without worries. The body is a thick canvas and it is lined inside with a lighter cotton canvas. One thing though : the is not a bag you should check on flights - notic the very cool closure, it is not lockable. This is purely a carry-on bag IMO
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    Dimensions : 19.7" x 13.8" x 9.8" ( 50cm x 35cm x 25cm)
    No other colors this time, but we could easily reorder in different colors. This cement canvas was my favorite of all.
    The price of this bag is $530 incl US shipping and before SF discount.

    Just this bag, a polo coat, and a pub jacket and I'll be looking at spending $2K. Do you ever plan on having sales? :)

    (Still deciding whether to get both the navy hopsack and the houndstooth coat.)

    You know we could easily also add a pair of shoes in that bag if you'd like :devil:

    Yes, we'll have sales but because this is our first season, our buy is not deep. We only have very few units of each item and we try to price things very fairly. If you really want something, I'd say don't wait too long... There's already a couple of things that are sold out in some sizes through pre-orders - and store isn't even open

    (the answer is easy - hint: it starts with "b" and ends with "oth")
