    It is, the front and the back is identical, so it doesn't matter which way you put it on. The quality and construction seems superior to SNS.

    a lot of hate on MIC on here, judge on the end result not the process imo

    the chinese in china are as good as the chinese in italy who are making everything there.


    1) There are several Italian factories not staffed with Chinese people.

    2) Yes, it does depend on the process, quality level targeted, equipment and QA/QC. These things are generally better in Italy but it would be foolish to dismiss all Chinese factories out of hand, some operate at a very high level.

    There was an MC guy who was showing how you can now get fully handmade suits from PRC now, build quality was insane

    It's a changing world

    Will that N(N) hat even fit on you, JD? winq has one and it's too small for his head, and he's a much smaller person than you.

    I have a vintage Brioni hat like that in a kind of angora.

    It's a large - guy I bought it from had a head circumference of 61 and said it was a little small, measured the interior as 58.5, I am just under 58cm around so hopefully. I think people are really overestimating how difficult it is to wear a hat. EDIT: Also, [​IMG]

    Surely it's not an easy piece to wear well. I like both of your most recent purchases. Especially the hat is very interesting.

    It's not difficult to wear a hat. Making it look good, on the other...

    I just can't picture it not looking contrived with pretty much any of the clothes you've posted on here.

    Same hat.

    It's pretty moldable.

    I am going to quote all this when I post a fit pic and see if the consensus remains.


    APC has a wide-brimmed wool hat as well

    That one is way wider - this is pretty small brim, though bigger than that Geller fedora earlier alluded to which IMO would be way harder to wear.

    Too much gothninja but gives you an idea of the brim size. Anyway we'll see if it's more than I can chew when I try it on.
