I'm definitely going down to DC for MTM suit Mauro. Good shit.
Yeah, I'm thinking I need to make a trip out to DC this summer for sizing, too. Might as well use this overtime for the forces of good.
The summer is just about the worst time to visit DC.
When choosing fabric go for the cloth made of 100% ice
It will make fittings more tolerable
damn, looks great, mauro!
Can't be any worse than Memphis, TN in the summer. I'll just show up in daisy dukes and a sleeveless work shirt, unbuttoned.
Purple pants and henleys for me please! And that red coat is fucking awesome. Stepping up in a big way, man
Which is amazing because that's exactly what Mauro will be wearing.
One more ToJ then gotta swear off spending until Fall. Three outerwear pieces too. Delicious.
Things have come a really, really long way from last year. Was taking a look back to see what was released in 2011 - shirts and knickers. This Fall? Trousers, chinos, sweaters, shirting, suiting, basics, outerwear... And most of it with an MTM option. Next Fall? Can't even imagine.
Buy a tote. I hesitate to say it as it's been said a million times before and I myself am a bit jaded from all tote-pushing that comes from Mauro's RL buddies. But I don't know Mauro in RL, nor do I have a vested interest in seeing totes sold (in fact, it's probably the opposite - more tote holders means less personal service for me, less chance at the tote holder exclusives), and I'm not worried about the brand growing and succeeding, because you can see quite clearly that people are buying WvG from other vendors at full price. But I'm still saying you should buy one.
It made financial sense if you liked the button downs - buy 2 or 3 and you've made your money back. But seeing how far things have progressed in a year, it's not ever going to be just button downs. You're looking at 30% off an full-fledged menswear brand, 50% off in your Birthday month, with an online MTM option, FOR LIFE, with personal customer service from the designer. You might even get an actual tote bag at some point.
If you like the aesthetic, it just seems like a no brainer to me. Don't think there's anyone who's regretted it.
I'm not really one to wanting to own a ton of button downs, which has kept me from buying a tote thus far, but the trousers and sweater (and everything pictured, really) may just convince me to do otherwise. Nice work, Mauro.
Edit: Oh, already went over why there's no reason not to buy a tote.
Buy a tote.
...Wait... 50% off in your birthday month? But.. that's this month for me.
