    A circle would be negative drop. I thought Asians were good at math? :puzzledL


    The beauty of NMWA is that you can order stuff no risk to try out sizes without the NYC travel!

    Word. Although I've only returned one or two things. They give great size advice and plenty of measurements to get it right.

    The only time (or two) when I had to return somethong back to NMWA is when they sent me an extra belt by accident.

    Same here. Can't believe all the beautiful Macclessfields that have never been restocked or replaced.

    i don't think it's inkjette... maybe vintage with many years on its shoulders?



    Shocking how small Hober's Macclesfield selection is these days... when I ordered mine it was much bigger

    That olive I have pictured is no longer available :(

    Late comment but I think the polo was a good sell.

    +2 on the DB. Get one in charcoal.

    That's a negative on the DB.

    Noodles needs to focus on staples first, all. A navy birdseye should be his next purchase

    This.

    And the new pics, everyone is going to think you're the CEO, Doodals. Let's hope your bosses don't dress horrible, otherwise they are going to be jealous!

    Nope, it's from Adamley I believe, screen printed




    The problem is that unless you are a Drake's sized company and can order bespoke patterns, then the likes of me, hober, VM etc order off the stock range, which is quite large probably around 500 or so prints but the problem is generally once they go they go unless someone re-orders one and then Adamley usually make another 10-20 metres of it for stock. So it's more than likely that's the case for Hober and he hasn't ordered any replacements, maybe focussing on other fabrics like grenadine who knows.

    The downside to ordering off stock is I quite often see the same patterns at Capelli or VM that I do, but then we sell to very different markets as well so it's not all that bad. Case in point, this one from Viola Milano

    And mine. (The VM one is quite overexposed but it's the same fabric)
