Shallow? What pants did you pick up? Should be to at least mid thigh.
I got the medium grey fresco in contemporary. Definitely no where near my mid-thigh, but I'm kind of tall so that might not be a good point of comparison on me.

Dang man, what are you putting in your pockets? I find mines to be long as hell
It might just be me! But when I put my hand in the pocket my wrist bone is exposed, feels weird

as long as the cashmere doesn't instantly pill like Uniqlo. I paid a lot for my colhays one but it is noticeably on another level.
I'm not going to compare to Colhays. But definitely better than Uniqlo.

Our goal is to offer high value, not to be the best at any cost, that's for luxury makers and I can bet that Colhays will make a nicer cashmere.

On the flipside we're not trying to be the lowest price either. That's a race to the bottom with it's own set of economical, environmental, social and ethical problems that we don't want to be contributing to. The challenge is to offer the right balance and that's why I think it's rare to be successful in this space. But we're trying.

AND, for the price, though not cheap, the cashmere is a great value given the quality we're offering.

You know what won't pill?
The whiskey suede trucker that you're hopefully having constructed for me as we type...

No. Most people still prefer the normal cut, BUT with things the way that they have been the past year, most people have not have a need and have not been buying tailoring. The Niche (menswear crowd) who are still interested in tailoring have. So we turned more of our tailoring towards the niche market.

OK. That makes sense. But please don't forget us non-iGents.

Hi guys, anyone having size issues with quest cotton trousers? I got mine 34 contemporary in cream color but it’s good 2 cm off from the table numbers. In my case, it should have 90,2 cm. Instead it has 88 cm with very little place to fool around. It’s first time, dress pants are being like 1size smaller than it should be. Quite strange. By S&M it’s my first pants issue. And so far I used to have quite a few of them.

The chunky cardigan is 4-ply, 7 gauge, 1 KG of pure Merino.

We are planning 2 cashmere sweaters.

The first is a simple 12 gauge, crew. 15 micron, 35 mm Inner Mongolian Cashmere. Target $158 USD

2nd is a Cable Crew. 7 gauge. Also 15 micron, 35 mm Inner Mongolian Cashmere. Target $225 USD.
What colors, or has that been decided yet?

I have a kelly green cable crew cashmere sweater I bought from RLPL a couple years back, and it's kind of the sweater I compare all other sweaters to. I'd be interested to test them side by side.
