H&S Classic Mohair (85% wool/15% kid mohair as mentioned by Truth) reaches the good balance. More mohair means a too shiny effect. Very resilient fabric and excellent capacity to maintain its shape but, indeed, when the crease is marked it stays.Mohair fibres are longer, thicker and straighter than wool fibres. A high mohair content in a cloth usually means more sheen on the surface and a bit more stiffness (wrinkles easier), which you probably want to avoid in a business suit.
I don't know whether Uniqlo has the same models in Europe, but I recently purchased a couple of pairs of Uniqlo's "vintage" chinos and they are great. Middle-weight cloth that's a decent weight, instead of the tissue-thin cotton used in many chino pants nowadays, high-rise waist (comes up to just under my navel), and legs of decent width.Anyone has a suggestion for a pair of chinos/cotton trousers at around 100 euros with a high rise (atleast 10 inches), relatively straight/ non skinny leg?
I haven't measured the rise on mine - I just know that the waistband comes up to my navel.mmh - 10" - they call it rising, but I'm assuming its front rise - for a size 34 isn't all that high rise in my oh so humble opinion. I hereby officially designate them medium rise.
Vintage-style (ie not skinny and low-rise), perhaps?and whilst I'm at it - how can they be vintage if they are new?
Never heard of this italian MTM offer. I'm currently trying Belisario Camicie which was recommended by CesareRomiti. Shitty website but deep online process (lot of handwork options). 150 euros per shirt (shipping included, handwork excluded). Hope the result will be good.
My dear CesareRomitiI know a GREAT naples shirtmaker who is willing to travel to paris as soon as someone organises the local customer base
He ordered some sale shirtsMy dear CesareRomiti
Please give me the info about this shirtmaker in PM and I'll give it to Adrian Dearnell. I have already a job, two daughters and no time to organize a customer base. Nevertheless I want to acquire beautiful neapolitan shirts.
Did your SF doppelganger ever order something to BelisarioCamicie? He seemed interested few years ago.
How many summer weddings do you attend per year?
One fitting.The pattern yet needs some tweaking but is way better than the usual suspects.
Front is ok
Back is not.
Sleeves got strange bags of fabric on the upper part and too much
fabric on the lower part around the cuff.
How many tries did you?
I don't think you need anymore than one fitting and a wash for a shirt. There's some chaps here in The Hague who do a couple of fittings and have you coming back after several washes before they go live with additional shirts. Odd thing is, all the shirts they make have a very signature open collar from the last button up to me. Too wide and not very distinctive from there up. They also make you pay up front, which I consider somewhat vulgar.One fitting.
When tucked, the shirt looks much cleaner on the lower back.
Regarding the upper part of the sleeves, you may be right.
The excess of fabric around the cuff is something I requested specifically, so the cuff doesn't go up when bending the arms.
Thanks for the feedback.
