    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I think that the strength of the collection is that by focusing on simple, interesting design it can be taken both ways. There isn't a single piece here that I would consider streetwear. It's all in how you put it together.

    Love the "loose" (unfinished? non-cinched? rolled? not sure what the word is here) bottom hem on the aran mock turtleneck, great detail that totally changes how it can be worn

    Are the buttons on the Gentry Courtier black or a dark brown?

    @NickPollica

    Edit: Or Blue?

    I developed a stonewashed black corozo button this season for the dark grounded shirts. It has a matte finish with undertones of the natural nut color - an amazing depth of color. I normally hate the idea of black buttons, particularly because they are usually very shiny and severe, but this one is great because it essentially goes away and doesn't distract from the textiles.

    Keep trying to get an answer on this -- who still sells Eidos 54L? Anyone?

    I believe Bloomingdales and NMWA are the only stores that offer variant sizing.

    For those of you that are sick of all the low rise, tight pants that have flooded the market in the last 10 years, you'll be happy to know that our two higher rise, full leg chino models just hit Mr. Porter. They can both be seen in the editorial I did for their site last week here:

    I wear some version the stone Nonno chino like 5 days a week but the Ambro belted pant in sage corded cotton pant is my favorite silhouette for the season. Funny story with how these came to be - I was visiting Salvatore Ambrosi's old workspace in Naples whe he showed me these old French motorcycle pants he'd bought in Japan. He gave them to me and told me he'd give me 1000 euro if I could find someone in Italy to replicate them as their details - particularly their belt and waistband construction - were too complex and required too much handwork. We refined them for everyday use but maintained the key details that made them special.

    Hey y'all I'm maybe considering selling my gun club sportcoat from last FW (from NMWA). Any 52's who may be interested PM me and if we can get a win win scenario on the price then, well, awesome. Haha.

    P.S. ^japanese gambling pants look cool^

    Can personally vouch for the Beige textured cashmere sweater seen on the Mr.Porter article.

    I wore it for the first time today and it's beautiful. Soft, comfortable, and super warm.

    Depends on how you want your pants look. This is a relaxed chino. It is supposed to be full, a little bit loose, comfortable. I would not recommend sizing down. The waist is cut with a bit of room so you can alter down if you like a tight waist but I would recommend your actual size.

    Happy to report that the Matera is amazing. Incredible fabric and the perfect weight for west coast winters. It's 90 today so I was sweating just looking at it. Here's a craptastic photo. Sized down for a good fit over a shirt.
