Received a couple silk ties, top notch. Waiting on a MTM shirt, but with everything going on in India, not sure when it may be able to be completed -- any ideas @spiermackay?

Have several trousers set to arrive soon along with two more ties. On the trousers, going with several variations in slim 30-31, so we'll see what fits best.
We're on the phones with them every day. Possibly they will have a small group back in the factory on the 15th now. MTM is the priority and based on orders we have, they can clear those within 10 days.

Fabrics and complexity of construction.

Chinos - Low count/rugged yarn. Simple, casual construction, faux horn buttons.

High-Rise (I assume the Quest Cotton) Fabric is from HFW/Gladson. Extra Long Staple Cotton. Very refined. Trouser construction is also more laborious, has a pleated waist curtain, gusset, real horn buttons.
Da fuck. You really say price reflects cost?

I have a question regarding price differences between types of trousers. Cotton chinos are $48 but high-rise cotton trousers are $118. Why is there such a difference in price? I'm simply curious. Thanks.
Sir, 1). You'll Look Like You're Wearing $48 Pants, 2). You'll Look Like A Millon Bucks! :fonz:

Reminder that the British were the ones who thought Solaro was a good warm-weather fabric because science or something.
At 350+ gram at that too. WTF.

Does linen even cut it really? I mean if it's 95 and humid out, I don't think it matters what you're wearing.
I have an unlined linen suit that I can wear in 95 deg with a thin linen shirt and a tie and still be comfortable. The key is no lining. Wherever there is lining becomes a sweat pool, bemberg be damned.

I'm gonna be honest- the SC sale bums me out a little. In my size (46R) there are 11 options. TEN of them are blue/navy. Guess that saves me some money though :confused:

I wish I could say the same. 95 means sweaty misery, even if I am just wearing swim trunks.

The flip side is that I can wear fresco wool and other light stuff all winter long without being cold.

Just curious,what is the advantage of a pleated waist curtain? Some of my trousers have those and I just makes them harder to iron lol.

TBH summer is humid and hot here, so it's shorts weather with sockless or no show socks and loafers/Crown Northampton sneakers -- if I'm going to be outside peregrinating. For indoors business casual it's sheer fabric trousers and a golf polo that breathes well.

Tell you what, get yourself a golf polo and have it fitted ultra slim through the waist by a tailor and if you have the shape for it, makes you look like farking superman.

A little more flex at the hip seams, a little more movement. It's a tiny vent that can open/close with movement. That's the idea anyways.
