    I'm not an expert, it's just the go to recommendation. The standard. I actually got a more expensive one, but you'll hear many stories about how if you buy one and don't lose it, you'll never need to replace it. And it is a great way to care for garments, as lint rollers, though convenient, can do damage over the long term. As another person said, they generally make high quality combs/brushes. I used comb for my own (thinning, unfortunately) hair and I noticed a nice craftsmanship and quality of materials (like reduced static, easy to clean, etc.)

    Totally agree. My minnis grey fresco trousers come in today and a few other things next week, I’ll definitely post some crappy iPhone pics

    Looks grey on my phone. Bad phone? Or more greyish than light blue?

    It is light blue. Artificial light probably makes it look more grey.

    One more. Can't wait for the MTO to go live because I think i would like it an inch or two longer. Pretty excited to wear it this spring though

    Agreed , I personally like a longer fit so this looks a bit too short to me. Was there no Long option in your size?

    Still beautiful jacket choice!

    That is a Long lol. I'm about 6'4", if I were any taller I don't think I could wear any of their jackets OTR. This is about the shortest I'd go, it at least covers my butt :)

    Received the Bottoli Brown Mix Slub, to my eye more of a mid brown and I'm damn well pleased! A quick outdoor pic:

    Though it's already been settled, IEG's hopsack is most definitely NOT the Neo (I think it's Filarte fabric?) Hopsack. Far brighter. I'd actually really dig a Neo version in that shade.
    Kirby is a super nice dude, and, though some of his other wares are obscenely overpriced (like the brushes lol), I don't think his hanger are THAT egregious, relative to the competition.

    Haha, well I feel dumb now.

    But hey as long as you're happy with the fit that's the most important thing. It's going to be a great jacket to wear this summer.
