I am inclined to say yes, unequivocally, but Americans tend to keep to Madrid, Barcelona, and Sevilla when they visit Spain, so in all fairness I don't see many American tourists in my own sleepy provincial city. It does, however, make one laugh to hear or read a Brit go on about American boorishness (see: alcohol, black-out).
i should have sample lengths of indian chambray in a week or two..
there will be misweaves!!! and inexpensive!
woven on some 40 year old power loom
Are slubs just "misweaves?" I thought they were due to irregularities in the yarn itself.
Piccolo in Naples (the shirting merchant) carrys a darker shade Albini chambray, very good stuff, and they show me some samples of other tones obtained through a wash finishing that they were commissioning, very much like denim jeans different colours....
Moscow sounds like a pretty miserable place to be honest. Also, the comment in that article on "nice" suits like Hugo Boss made me cringe.
Ha! Despite my love for the English, I am inclined to agree. My wife and I once showed up to our hotel in Prague to be told that our room had been destroyed by a British stag party the night before. To be fair, they put us up somewhere nicer, so it ended up for the best, but still...
That flag is going to need hazard pay.
SG chambray is made all by other tisserand, for SG!
Le phénomène of SG chambray is typique, much persons want have some thing (in situation here is SG old chambray) no really nothing special, but luxury marketing man like Mariano and Anna make legend for to make big prix (in situation here, prix = money, also pénis) for this item so ordinary! Perception of exclusivité make man want! Same Mariano fabric vault, leather from ship in bottom of ocean, Hermès lady bag!
In this days hipster want every thing must to be vintage!
OK, I think I got it... this is the weekend when, like a Phoenix, the OneShirt will rise from the ashes of the new S&G chambray. I have purged my wardrobe of all shirts in preparation so I hope I haven't misinterpreted Foo's message here.
Kindly don't lump us Britons in with the English.

Fascinating, thanks for doing that Foo. Did you notice a difference in the smell when burning the different fabrics?
BTW, the fire engine siren that shows up halfway through your video got me laughing. Hopefully that was just a coincidence.
Foo, didn't you smell the polyester as well?
Did you see the post from a few weeks back?
I was at Carl's and he did the test, I can't say I knew then how it was supposed to burn, but for sure you could smell the synthetics.
