    Looks great, Mauro! I can't wait to see the work pant.

    I'm going to try to call you later, but it's a busy day. How did you make out with chambrays?

    Hey guys here are 5 fabrics I am using for shirts and the adobe color cotton duck canvas ( 10oz selvege) will be a bad ass work pant ( you will love the fit). the fabric is reserved edition white oak fiber dyed. I showed you 3 different looks for the fabric. raw, industrial rinse, and bleached. you can how it breaks down....so sweet. The green and burnt orange are an Italian fabric for Monti and the two tattersall and lavender oxford fabrics are thomas mason. The shirting is amazing and I think you will love the fit of the shirts. All 5 shirts will be before dinner shirts. I will have some after dinner shirts ready in september. I hope you like them!

    Mauro, Fabric for the work pants looks excellent! Not something you see every day, but still seems very versatile. Excited to see how they turn out. -Dave

    Well I can assure you the factory I am using for the shirts should exceed all expectations.
    I am using ( goes with out saying) a new factory for the work pant which should rock as well.
    I am waiting for a sample.

    let's just say from the shirts I've seen, you won't have any of the issues that persist with band :p

    I'm still just getting into premium/designer labels as far as shirting goes. With that said, what are the prevailing issues with BoO?

    Really like the first two shirt samples.

    Mauro, are you still planning on going forth with a gray chino this fall?

    Good to know before i dropped some coin on a shirt (despite being on sale) from Odin. I'll just wait for these and skip the off chance of something going awry.

    Thanks.

    I am looking for quality fabrics. I slept on a lot for the fall 09 season. I will can't find any chambray. Twills are either outrages in price or no where to be found. I will look again next week when I am back in NYC.

    You should document your journey on some Mauro Farinelli "Fabric Hunter" type thing...
