    Hi Kent.

    I am planning on buying polos in the following colors: light blue, pink, and yellow.

    For those three colors, would you mind telling me if the material used is the stiffer cloth (like the navy blue) or the softer, more pliable cloth (like the grey)? Thanks!

    It's in line with European sizing such as H&M (in EU stores). Honestly I regret a bit doing that as I'm making XXL but no XS. I'd like to change the sizing if I could but that would create a lot of confusion.

    I've just used the usual dry cleaning chains; no opinions about them.

    Light blue and pink are thinner, but not quite as soft as the grey, only the royal blue is similarly soft. Yellow is medium weight.

    My guilloche blue links have arrived!
    When I first saw them I thought the size might be too big to fit, but it turns out slide through the opening just fine. :D

    Love them except one of them has some specks of dust trapped underneath the enamel which detracts from the sunflare effect :(

    What weight is the white fabric? Is anything as hefty as the navy blue?

    White feels about the same as the navy to me.

    Not in Austin anymore but I used Oliva Tailors on Jefferson and 35th. Guy there is a nice guy, listens to requests. I hear that Francesca lady is a surgeon though so maybe her.

    Hey Kent,

    just received my shirt. Was good fit.

    I also ordered black onyx cufflinks but was mistakenly sent the mother of pearl cufflinks (same price). No dramas though as i was planning to get them anyway.

    Anyway, just wondering if for the blue oxford shirt, if you'd be able to do a custom white collar and cuffs with blue body.

    also, i notice the purple gingham does not have a custom option. Any chance you'd be able to do one in the future?

    Cheers

    Hi.
    I was going to get two or three pocket squares, but after adding them to cart at checkout have found that shipping to Russia would be $35. Looks like too much for a couple of gramms. Is there only flat rate available?
    Thanks.

    Hi Kent, can you give a peak into the new polo color options? I need more of these.

    New polo colors haven't been finalized yet.


    We used to offer first class shipping to Russia, which would be around $5, but over half of those packages were lost, out of about eight that we sent. Priority and Express have all been reliable.

    If you want to take the chance, we can still do first class.

    Any idea when you hope to finalize them? Thanks.
