Don’t love either one, but the second is preferable.

I don't have any of the 2020 linen offerings from them, but based on earlier stuff I have to give it to Drake's. SM has great cotton-linen offerings, but their pure linen shirting feels a bit spongy and meh, it also wrinkles in a less pleasant way.Anyone have both Drake's and Spier & Mackay linen shirts who can draw comparisons? I know Drake's are Italian or Japanese linen and SM are Irish but beyond that I'm trying to reconcile the differences in my head.
I've always machine washed Drake's. I find washing them on the 'gentlest' setting at cold and line hanging them has no impact on longevity. G Inglese on the other hand.....Does anyone if the Drake’s linen shirts are machine-washable? Or are they suggested dry clean only? Thank you.
In the past they have not done any mid season restocks, once a season is complete, that’s it for that season/year. Your best bet is to keep an eye out for returns. Or once London and NY open back up, call the shops, they may have stock not reflected online.Does anyone know if drake's is planning to make any more of these popovers, or if they are still in stock anywhere? I'm looking for another one in a different color in xl/xxl
Interesting, as Drake’s recommends sizing up. My true size is 42.5, so... not sure whether to go up or down. I don’t like super snug espadrille fits so maybe up is safer.Size wise I had to size down on both. Quality wise I tried different materials but both are quality imo. Castaner seems to have a heftier sole.
