@[email protected] Did you reduce the rise on the sport chinos? I have a size 48 in navy, probably from 2019, and the rise is about 27cm after a few washes. Looks like the same size is 24.5 now.

A great pair of chinos!

Stopped by Tribeca store today and tried on the new 100 Hands shirts. Fantastic handwork and details. Ordered my normal size 16 in a white twill and machine made. I didn't need any adjustments for the standard block, which was great.

For comparison, I wear 16-35 in Kamakura shirts. Regarding fit, 100 Hands has a little more room around the mid section than Kamakura. The thin mother of pearl buttons on the 100 Hands are a lot nicer. I also really like the conical cuffs. Of course the collar designs and options are perfect. Really dig the Armoury collaboration collar and the long button down collar. Will post pictures once I receive the shirt. Excited to see the final product!

Shoutout to Alex and Daniel.

Good thing to know is that fabric prices are in tiers, so final prices can 📈 quickly depending on the fabric you choose.

It's not up on the website yet. For the standard line (machine made), the only things you can change, I believe, are collar and sleeve length. If you want MTM, you start immediately from the Gold Line which is $400+.

I really liked an ice blue chambray fabric, was priced as $350 for standard machine made 😂

Stopped by the Westbury shop last week (shout out to Kamau) and bought the Loro Piana Coarsehair sport coat. Originally was gonna grab something else but the fabric looks even more gorgeous in person and had to kop. Just need some more styling ideas for it now.

Also heads up the Ring Jacket 20% promotion apparently ends at the end of this month. Get those suits / sport coats cheaper while you can!

I think that coat can be worn with grey trousers, but I especially like it with mid-brown. Something like this:

That's a whipcord fabric in Holland & Sherry's Dakota book. IMO, the Coarsehair jacket looks great with that, a blue oxford shirt, and either black tassel loafers or dark brown derbies.


The Armoury has a similar pair of pants in RTW

I really like how that combo has a somewhat tonal vibe, but without going full tonal. Feels very sporty to me, and in line with a lot of Loro Piana brand styling. Sort of different plays on soft, cold hues of brown.

Mark also has some good styling ideas here
