I have nothing to add except that I still can’t wait to see this new in house line. I wish George would make his own Brio line through and through like AngloItalian or Drakes or Brycelands etc.He's developing his own in-house tailoring line, apart from what's offered through trunk shows. I believe he still has the exclusive house cut that he offers through WW Chan trunk shows. But he also has an in-house tailor and they've developed their own house cut. The sample I saw is slightly more aggressively styled than the WW Chan cut you see above. Slightly more extended through the shoulders, a little more drapey, and has the same dropped buttoning point. Feels a little 1980s Armani to me, but in a good way.
Do you have a top-loading or side-loading laundry machine?Speaking of jeans - what are the various opinions on how to wash raw denim jeans (3Sixteen SL-100x to be specific)? I've seen a lot of conflicting methods out there...my overall goal is to minimize shrinking, don't mind if the jeans fade a bit
Top-loading washers with the wheel in the middle can be harsh on clothes. Side-loading washers are a bit gentler.top loading washer
Should clarify: raw denim can shrink, but it depends on whether your jeans are sanforized or not. The type of washing method will not affect the shrinkage. If your jeans are sanforized, they will have minimal shrinkage regardless of how you wash them. If your jeans are unsanforized, you will want to soak them in water before wearing them first.top loading washer, front loading dryer
To your last point, I’m similar. Especially with F/W clothing. I planned to round out my trouser and SC staples and have what has been awaiting tailoring addressed. Then, the bottom fell out.There's something deeply satisfying on having visible patch pockets on everything. I love these OG 107 fatigue pants from Stan Ray. Not actually a carrot fit after a wash, more like a nice straight loose fit. Front pockets are great for hand stuffing.
Functionally, not overly different from other pants, but it gives a similiar satisfaction to wearing an M-65 or safari jacket.
Despite the last year being absolute ass, I've been ironically having more fun with clothing and not taking it as seriously and/or strict CM.
