The Luigi Bianchi Mantova is beautiful, a truly stunning sportcoat.
It's interesting that their length is quite short.
No, I bought them day one last year and they were $250 (just like the navy still is). Just picked up another pair too, because it's the most versatile trouser I have and I have a matching jacket.
Okay, must have been thinking about the burgundy hopsack I got.
I was looking forward to the Driggs but I don't think it's going to fill the niche I was hoping for. 1.5" lower rise seems huge to me, not slight. The buttoned coin-pocket is a deal-breaker for me, too. I will be interested to see how popular these are.
Also, size chart doesn't go below 30. Are 28-29 even available as MTO?
P.S. any new shoes in the pipe?
Any chance the driggs will be available in a 40 or a 38 waist?
i thought the thigh on the driggs was going to be the same size as walts; maybe I misunderstood the description a few pages back because the measurements for 32 waist show the driggs as a full inch smaller in the thigh... I bring this up for clarification because the only place where walts do not fit me well is in the thigh... so if these are an inch smaller then I should be golden!!! Trying to decide if I should pick up the british khaki or the navy... hmm.
For Rivets I am a 32 and walts a 31, which way should I lean with the driggs?
And unrelated, any chance that there will be a long sleeve light weight polo shirt this year from either line? I really dig the rolled up long sleeve light weight polo... A linen or jersey version with buttoned cuffs would scream summer!
Also, never mentioned it again, but I copped the DB veneto last summer one size too big and you guys convinced me to keep it. I just wanted to let you know that it is hands down my favorite coat, and probably my favorite article of clothing period. The heathered grey blue color is pretty sweet because navy outerwear pieces are a dime a dozen... I need to get a fit pick up before winter is over!
Lastly, I know that they could be a ways out still, but any idea when the Carmina December special order shoes will start arriving, and any idea when you will do another round? I think that I have mentioned it before, but making two payments makes expensive shoes a lot easier to stomach.
Congrats on the new addition to the family! I am sure you will have the best dressed kid around haha!
Hmmm... Looking at the Driggs sizing chart, thigh is the same compared to my size in Walts (34). Difference is the 1" in the leg opening, the 1.5" in the rise, and 1" in the inseam. All less/smaller than Walts.
Well, I ordered a pair in the olive, so I'll find out how they fit me.
Epaulet lambswool cardigan:
1) This jacket looks amazing.
2) The pose, moustache, and tie-tuck make this photo even better.
EDIT: The blue digicamo looks pretty cool as well. Prefer it, in fact, to the standard digicamo offerings.
also, good use of black knit tie
The Epaulet x Luigi Bianchi Mantova jacket is gorgeous. I think the button stance might be a little high for my test, but nonetheless I appreciate the collaboration and think the design, material, and that color of navy all look spectacular.
Also, thanks to the person who bought the deer Eisenhower in Medium so I won't be tempted anymore!
I'm sorry if this has been answered before.
I really like the new Driggs trousers, but can they be made up in Walt/Rudy fits? The higher rise fits me better.
