Can you please explain what is jacket sleeve construction?
Was also wondering this.
Selling the Toni pants in size 32, unworn. Apparently I'm dumb and can't read size charts because they're much too small for me. Thankfully, trig hooked me up with 34's which fit great.
Posting here before I list them on Grailed. Looking for the $85 that I paid during the sale + shipping.
What is the waist measurement of those again? If it is actually 32 inches, I'm interested. If not, I'm still looking for whoever got the size 30.
should be actually 32. mauro doesn't vanity size.
Mauro gave me a helpful link some time ago regarding shirt construction so I thought I would share with you guys:
Jacket sleeves are described in #9. Apparently you can also request many of the other details when ordering MTM
Wow this is awesome. I think Mauro should link to this on the WvG site.
It's not mine to copy. That was written a two years ago from some menswear blog. I do offer everything on that list of " must haves", except for the tension thread because my shirt maker says it's a crock of shit and any real shirt maker would never use such a thing. Personally, I disagree but I am not shelling out the cash for the machine and thread.
I do hope everyone reads that just to get a better idea of what I do offer and what I have been harping on for years.
I know a lot of people still don't really give two shits about all the fine details but I do and that's the product I am making.
Get all of those things done right including the hand sewn monograms is a true thing of beauty. Another option, I offer is, if you want you can have an extra collar made with a set of extra cuffs.
This is very old school.
I believe, if you can find someone that offers all these services ( besides me) your shirt will start about $250.00 and go up from there depending on the fabric. More than likely you should drop about $350 to $400.00
This is of course for a dress shirt. A casual shirt doesn't need all of these bells and whistle. I think " jacket sleeves and a little hand sewing will be enough. At the minimum " Jacket sleeves".
You simply will not want to go back once you try it. The range of motion, drape, and comfort are just there.
Sweater ad shirt updates-
Sweaters leave this week and some shirts leave this week. Please be patient. I am more frustrated than all of you combined. The wait will be worth it.
Nik might post his MTM shirt and show some of the details. I hope he does. I spoke with him over the phone today and he was very happy. He is the first to have " jacket sleeves" from me.
I am letting everyone know now-
I am doing a flannel pant( charcoal) run and a wool/mohair ( navy) trouser I need 20 to 25 pieces per style. That means either enzo or predator. That's the minimum. The fabric is from Vitale Barberis
The pants $130.00 dollars not including the rewards discount. The pants are a fucking steal. I will post pics on my blog as well as in a general newsletter and a rewards members newsletter.
Hopefully, We make the numbers.
I am leaving this week to Ohio to tie up the loose ends and get the fabric count. Those shirts will be ready to ship sometime in January. The sooner the orders get in the sooner I will have them made.
I also am waiting for scarf pictures. The scarves are finished. They are all woven wool cashmere blends. The scarves were loomed on old wooden shuttle looms in Italy. It's very rare and very special.
The first round of pictures were to muted so I am having them reshoot.
They will make PERFECT holiday gifts for both men and women.
The fabrics sound awesome.
Is there any chance of getting something made with a higher rise? I keep meaning to ask you about this. Would be happy doing MTM but I didn't know if that's one of the measurements that can be adjusted.
Is mohair a smoother fabric? I googled it and that's what it seems like.
Hey Mauro when do you think you will do another run of the indigo enzo chinos?
Any updates on Outerwear? It's starting to get cold here
Also, I have a 38 tony blazer I'm willing to sell for the sale price + shipping. Fit is a little tight on me.
i don't know about outerwear but i got confirmation from Mauro last night that the Henley preorders ship from Italy by the December 15th so hopefully they will make it out right around xmas.
Speaking of outerwear, I reached out to Mauro about having a leather jacket made. I'm just going for what looks like a relatively stock model (picture below), and I'm planning on keeping the modifications to a minimum (best way to screw up an MTO is too much tinkering, IMO). I'll keep people apprised.
