    Has anyone tried their bags, especially the 002 Daily Brief?

    I missed Stoffa for all of their trunk shows in SF, but since I recently relocated to Ireland, I'll catch them in London this fall. What would be the best materials for 3 season wear in Ireland? I will have 3 pairs made, gray, blue, not sure of the third. I would presume to skip flannels given the moisture? What weight are the flannels? Thanks in advance for any guidance. I know materials and colors are likely to change for the fall.

    I think you'll be fine with all cotton options. Not sure about the flannels, but I don't think any of stoffas fabrics are over 400g. Flannels are quite different from your British flannels, not at all as heavy and dense.
    Choices all depends on how formal you'd wanna go. Assuming it's not for a strict dress code I'd choose grey high twist wool/flannel and the same in a navy/indigo, and finally sand or taupe water repellent cotton or perhaps a winter white basket weave or a nice linen.

    Two of the cotton options are 520g :)

    Thanks for the low down on the shirts. I'd assumed they were mtm, as well. My monkey arms usually need that.

    In a fresh article on Swedish Manolo.se, about next weeks trunk show, there’s a note saying the knitwear program is now available as MTM. Agyesh told me that was the plan moving forward as well, but I didn’t expect it so soon.

    I actually just bought my first knit shirt from Stoffa so I can clarify the MTM parameters. They currently have two customization options for the shirts: (1) for an upcharge (I believe it is $50) you can adjust the sleeve length (+ or -) on any of the RTW knit shirts, or (2) for a one-time charge of $150, Stoffa will build you a personal pattern for the knit shirts. If you get a personal pattern, subsequent shirts will not have that one-time charge.

    I decided to adjust the sleeve length on the one I bought - just to try it out - but depending on how I find shrinkage, I may go down the latter road eventually (the shirts are very nice). Because I decided to only adjust the sleeve length, I'm not certain what/how they do the personal pattern.

    Nice. Did they have any new models/colors as well? Because their insta posts have mentioned new additions to the knitwear range.

    I think the models are all the same, but they did have new colors that were on the darker end of the spectrum (chocolate brown, indigo, navy, and something else?). They indigo color I think would look great on the band-collar popover.

    Nice. I’m really tempted now that it’s mtm, but I already have 4 Eidos lupos and 6 Friday polos by Luca Avitabile. Maybe just a band collar one. But I do love the swooping collar on the other one. :blush:

    Anyone had any recent success in making an appointment outside trunk show dates or are the trunk shows really the only time you can do any fittings, etc.

    I have not scheduled one yet, but my understanding is that Stoffa will soon (if not already) have a consistent space in NY to allow them to take appointments outside of their trunk shows.

    I have an appointment with them in New York in a few weeks. I think they're pretty accommodating, probably especially so if you aren't trying to come during one of their trunk shows elsewhere.

    Ah, dang. Closest city near me would be LA. Guess I gotta be on the trigger on the next days Stoffa comes around.
