    How different in color are the indigo chinos from the old navy chinos?

    Just ordered the pink oxford and the khaki chinos. I may have actually preferred the natural indigo chinos, but they just don't fit into my wardrobe and I've got to prioritize. Especially w/ the sneakers, shirts, and blazers still to be released.

    I have to wait for them to arrive! But I will do so after hemming if there is any interest.

    goldenbear, is the pink oxford a light color? What about the khaki chino? Mauro mentioned that it was lighter than he expected. How light is the khaki color according to you? Thanks!

    How did you size the chinos? The front rise listed is throwing me off.

    I just edited my earlier post. I may have been unclear. I ordered the Khaki Chinos and the Pink Oxford, and will presumably get them when everyone else does. Regarding sizing the chinos, I just used the size chart. What did this time is I made a list of the dimensions of all the different types of chinos I owned and compared. Hopefully they work out.

    Is the reason for the V cavity at the back of the chinos so that the belt strap doesn't press against the lower back when you press against it? If so, that's an incredible idea.

    Oh my goodness.

    No. It's a split waistband in order to facilitate alterations.

    First pics is a nice woven I have choosen in differet colors.

    The last two pics are of a "11" fold tie in the making . The process is completely hand done and the tie is around 400.00 USD retail.
    I have choose different folds and levels of hand work. I think the MC will appreciate this more. Interestingly enough this is considered a 9 fold tie in Italy.

    these ties are made in a very special way and not just the folding aspect. The way the silk is woven. Only two mills in the world make this particular style. If you guess the name. I will give you one in a few weeks when they are ready. I will give a 7 fold "Italian" to the person who guesses. A 7 fold to the Italians is a 9 fold to Americans and I will get into that later.
    Any takers? For those who switch from Sw&D to MC feel free to invite those guys to play.

    Best,
    Mauro

    The ties appear to have a grenadine like texture. Are they woven by fermo fossati or bianchi?

    Looking for the name of the weave or the name of the mills? Garza Grossa/Garza Fina for the weaves, though I've seen them named piccolo elsewhere for finer grenadines.


    Almost out of season, but have you looked in making scarfs before, Mauro?

    I do make scarves, knitted and woven.
    The knitted scarves are made in the US with whole garment machines. The woven cashmere scarves are made in Italy by old shuttle looms.
    They should start arriving in September 2015.

    Mauro do you plan on having any regularly stocked basics like oxfords? I like the pre-order system but sometimes I just want to pick up a shirt or something. Would probably he helpful for non-members also.
