It's more that I don't want to jump the gun and then return something where Cavour picks up the tab on shipping costs, but you're right--don't want to abuse Kevin's offer.

I'm living paycheck to paycheck but I need my Loro Piana sportcoat to stunt on people around me in the subway station so can the 30% off promotion be extended to the end of the month?
I know what you mean... I picked up the Solaro though it was probably not a great idea lol, but didn’t want to miss out! Still, it would be nice if the deal was extended till month end 😁 Lots more I’ve got my eye on!

Picked up the Solaro! Couldn’t help it... the pricing is excellent and I’ve always coveted that fabric lol!

What mill is it from, @kevinsvindland?
Nice one! I love how subtle it is. Often they have too much red. This one is rather easy to wear, without it looking costumey.👌🏼

The fabric is from Drago.

@kevinsvindland - was browsing the site and noticed the Ambrosi flannel twill trousers. Fabulous stuff, but sadly the taupe is out of stock in my size. Will you restocking? Also, can you share the details of the fabrics used? The website listing says H&S Interiors? I’m not a fabric expert - how do interiors fabrics do when made up as trousers? Either way, lovely pieces, just kicking myself that I didn’t look on the website sooner.
It is from a series called Patagonia by H&S, 400-something g/m
Being from the Interiors-range, it is not one you see all over the place like the VBC 340g flannel. (Not that it is not good, just used by everyone)

Wears very well, I have three pairs, my favorite flannel for trousers. Feels lighter than the weight would suggest and it keeps the crease well. And the colors are amazing, lovely depth.

Do we know how long 30% off is running for? Making a poor attempt at fiscal responsibility.
What is it now that this big american sports brand keeps telling us again...?

Thanks Kevin. I supose I never imagined that interior design fabrics would be soft enough to use for trousers. Even though the taupe is no longer in stock in my size, I just took the plunge on the beige. As you say, the colors on the website look amazing. Very much looking forward to receiving them!

Guys, can somebody comment on Rota trousers from Cavour? How do they fit compared to Rota trousers from Rota official website and compared to Cavour Mod 2 trousers? I am 48 in most brands (Like Model A trousers from The Armoury or High Waist trousers from Rota Oifficial Website), but almost 100% should size up in Mod 2. Now I am unsure about Rota's from Cavour. @kevinsvindland Your help appreciated.

Is the luxury high twist wool suit made of Dino Filarte fabric?
Seems to be another mixup in the copy texts. We have had some trouble before, like a Drakes Tie suddenly had the copy of a Cavour Shearling Jacket from seasons back.
I thought I had managed to correct them, but apparently not. Thanks for the heads up!

The Luxury High Twist this season is from Drago.
Other High Twists in the mens collection are from VBC.

But we have used some Dino Filarte fabrics on the Womens Collection, so that might be why it popped up in this description.

All our Rota trousers are their Firenze model (191) with side tabs and single pleats.
On the Rota site, they offer a few different styles and fits.

Compared to the Cavour Mod 2 trouser, the Rota Firenze model fits a little slimmer. And the Mod 2 waist is slightly higher.

Any plans to bring back Crispaire suits?

Any specifics on the hightwist suiting fabrics? What mill are they from? It would be great to include this type of information in the product descriptions.
High Twist trousers and jackets are from VBC, as are the plain and birdseye fabrics
The navy Luxury High Twist Suit is from Drago, so is the beige solaro.
This season we have 4 suit fabrics from Piacenza.


For jackets we have used Drago, Zegna, Di Pray, M&E, Loro Piana, Fox and VBC.

Will try to add some more info in the descriptions aswell. Just struggling to get my to do list to add up in these dark times of closed stores and low staff.

Edit: As for Crispaire suits we may bring it back, but not this season.
It is on the rather pricy side, compared to high twists from VBC or others.
