    I would like to get more of these in different materials. Does anyone have any advice on getting them in the US or online? I'm quite happy with the fit and would prefer to stick to this brand, not one of the dozens of derivatives (high quality though they may be).

    Thank you. The eBay link is being sold by one of our own SF members, but it's not what I had in mind. I bought one from CHCM before. The Italian webshop also has strangely limited selections and inscrutable product images.

    hi,
    are you still interested in Valstar Valstarino jackets?
    I've some pieces: brown suede, beige suede, and beige cotton gabardine.
    I often buy little stock of clothes thanks to the good contacts i have and i usually sell items to some japanese gentleman, but happened to your country too.
    As you can imagine i'm italian and i write from italy.
    Guess is obvious but let me tell you are brand news with all the labels attached.
    I've different sizes and i give them for a bargain price and for the payment i accept paypal.
    Of course i can provide even other brands as you can imagine, but ok, here i'm wrting cause i've read about your old post about valstarino by case, so i thought maybe you could be interested.
    Sorry for disturbing you

    Resurrecting an old thread.
    I'm currently looking for a cotton button up A1 type summer jacket., like what Valstarino or Ring makes. I am in US. Dont really care about the brand, just care about the quality and fit. If anyone has a suggestions I'd appreciate it - cant seem to find anything in size US38.

    Has anyone used Valstar's online MTO system?

    I ordered a Valstarino from them almost 3 weeks ago and after the initial confirmation I have heard anything about shipping. Their site says shipping will occur 15 working days after payment for MTOs but I ordered on 5.7 so I am getting a little nervous. I have tried to email them at their contact address but have gotten no response.

    Anyone have any experience with this process?

    3 weeks to make a jacket and have it shipped out sounds incredibly fast. Most MTO processes take at least 5-6 weeks. I would just be patient there. You caught them right in the middle of getting their new collection finished for Pitti mid-June, so I would simply assume they're very busy with that right now.

    Good point. I'll give it a bit more time before I lose my mind completely:)

    They're good people and professional. I wouldn't worry at all.

    I was told recently that Valstar is undergoing a change in management and that the 3 weeks to make a jacket would no longer apply. I was told that if I order now, the jackets will be available no earlier than September.

    If you haven't received a response yet, let me know and I'll send you an email for someone you can contact there.

    Thanks a lot, Dave! I still haven't heard from them so I would greatly appreciate a contact address. Thanks again!
