    Not that exact one, but we'll have a brown leather / brown suede variant for early Spring
    I'd recommend a 41.5 in ours, that's worked well for most guys
    We'll look to get it going this week (launched in the newsletter on Friday) and maybe run it a few weeks. Probably do the final choice right after Thanksgiving.
    A suit in Sienna Mink-Cash would be freaking boss. It's definitely intended to be a sportcoat cloth. It's thick too and would look brilliant in the Napoli 3/8 liner model.
    I've only been in Cali for a few weeks, but I'll echo this - and I think that many people feel this way. SoCal weather is freaking fantastic, but it is monotonous, and there's something to be said for the romance of cold days and snow. I miss it a little bit already. Plenty of customers come in here and complain that they can't wear Harris Tweed and such. Many of the guys who do own great menswear are frequently traveling. I'm not missing NYC's near-biblical level thunderstorms and Singapore-style humidity though. Not one bit.

    Good to hear that the trainers will be available in more colors. Really digged the idea of a gat with quality leather, but none of the current colors appealed to me, a brown leather/suede will be fantastic!

    Just got Lazio longsleeve polo (XS ) - like it very much, but it is borderline to being too small. What's your experience - do they shrink when washing ?

    XS is kind of ok on torso (but quite slim fitting), and sleeves are actually too short and slim - if it shrinks even a bit after washing I would prefer to exchange for S size

    Mike--

    Just wanted to bump this as you have been offline for a bit.

    Did we determine if the FF jackets qualify for the contest?

    I'd definitely advise going up to the Small. Won't be too big on you and should be right on after the wash.


    You know it! We're planning to also offer Dark Olive leather & suede and Black leather & Suede


    We'll most likely produce both Luchinos and EPLA polos. The design will largely be the same, but EPLA will be done in pima cotton pique, and retail around $80. Mercerized cotton is a much more expensive fiber, and we'll keep doing that in Italy.

    Sorry about the Cordovan confusion - I probably just meant to type Oxblood Scotchgrain. They do indeed have that.

    You know it on the Bond Jean! I'm starting patternwork on that in a week or so. It's definitely going to happen. I'd like denim to be a significant part of what we do by next season

    I've cleared up quite a few things with Carmina, and we finally have a handle on deliveries and styles. We can build out some preorders shortly, and I think that you guys will be pleasantly surprised with the prices.


    Love the colors here



    Yup, absolutely. They were delivered in the Fall. Special Order Carminas from the Summer are also fair game.


    The hat returns! Love it!

    Do you guys plan on doing any more Rivet chinos in brushed twill cotton or bedford cord, in >10oz weight? Love the pairs I have but would jump at additional options.

    Great news. I really want to add the Aubergine Luchino when it gets restocked. Cannot wait to purchase a pair of Bond Jeans. Looking forward to getting my Carmina MTO fix.

    Solovair vanilla brogues with navy heavy duck Rivets. These shoes are bonkers - they're calling out for louder socks, and are going to go perfectly with a pair of red corduroys I just bought.

    Very cool. These look like great shoes. I definitely see them with red.

    Amen to that. I've been lucky to travel a lot. I've been on tropical islands and in the middle of jungles and deserts. Nothing is worse than the mix of heat and humidity in NYC in the middle of the summer.
