    The place I'm worried about is by the shoulders, where there's some vertical folding when my arms are at all forward. This goes away if I stand military straight, but I don't do that, so...


    That's a sleeve pitch issue. A good tailor could fix it, but it's pretty expensive and I wouldn't worry about it, it's probably not worth it.

    Yes, it can be fixed but it involves taking the sleeves off and changing the angle at the armpit, IIRC it's $100 or so at least. The wrinkling you have is barely noticeable so I wouldn't bother.

    Was that hoodie really worth it? Next collaboration is on May 30th, one can only hope that it's better than what I found to be a very flat Tim Hamilton line.

    Yeah I really liked the hoodie. I like my hoodies to be slim, and that can be a problem when they have a ribbed waist because it tends to ride up the torso when I sit down. I liked that it had a double zipper (not usually too common on $40 hoodies) because then I won't have any problems with the hoodie riding up. I also like that the hoodie can be zipped up to cover up a good amount of the neck, and the color and lining were nice.

    I just got a damn good fishtail parka from United Bamboo. They could have toned down the fur collar some, which is coming off asap, but it's pretty well made and is close in design and details to the classic M65 (but not as oversized and drapey).

    It's too bad Mr. Ervell messed up on the pockets of that cardigan, or else you would have gotten a good sweater there jet. [​IMG] I like the red harrington though, along with that salmon check cardigan. [​IMG] Did anyone pick up his oilcloth parka for S/S? Edit: Also, picked up this bag from Engineered Garments yesterday. [​IMG]

    Don't know of anyone yet who has the parka man this is socal baby.

    I dig the pockets on the cardigan, a nice change from the typical. Come to think of it all my showstopper cardis don't have pockets which I love. Reserving judgment on the harrington til I see it, on hold for now.

    Cute tote!
