The 16.5 and above were all 36/37, which could be standard. But I thought 35 was standard.
why do you guys want borrellis with holes in them?
I think they are stained. Plus, if bleach would work, $70 for a borrelli is pretty good.
some have holes.
I once came across a borrelli shirt for $35 that fit perfectly but had a tiny hole on the chest (2 mm round) and I could not bring myself to buy it.
I think all the ones I purchased just have small marks. If it was any other colour than white - I wouldn't bother but for £25 a shirt it's worth a gamble.
Ah, did not see that. I have an Isaia SC that has a tiny hole in it on the sleeve, the fit is perfect and the pattern is my favourite of any SC I own. But even thought the hole is only 2mm across, it drives me nuts! I'm not quite sure how to go about fixing it, my tailor didn't want to try anything for fear of making it worse
Sounds like a job for a reweaver. What is the SC made of/what's the pattern?
Super 130's wool I believe. Its a brown with red check.... here's a link to the item.
It's from SF's very own cpmac7. He made the hole very well known, I just love this pattern/fabric
I would have no problem shipping it out to get it fixed correctly, I doubt anyone in my area has the skill to fix it.
for a SC - reweave.
for a shirt, SOL.
The hole on the Borrelli was in the right location for a monogram, but I did not want to bother.
Yes beautiful jacket. I don't know about Omaha but I do a good reweaver can work miracles. I put my elbow through a window while wearing my favorite tweed last year (long story) and my guy was able to fix the entire elbow. Good as new.
I just did a quick Google search for reweaving in Omaha and this seems to be the only place listed. No idea of their quality but it's a starting point at least.
good call. if it ain't right, it ain't right.
Nice find! They won the "golden scissors" from or in Italy in 1954. Anyone heard of this?
"Awarded Italy's Coveted, Golden Scissors" in 1954"
I will have to contact them. Hmm I frequent Minneapolis pretty often, if anyone has any experience with anyone in that area let know
