And second because the clothes have to live with you, they have to be comfortable and functional. We need to be able to pack boxes, Carl needs to be able to pick up his son, we need to live our lives everyday and not be constrained. But I always come back to a simple button-down shirt, a nice sweater and a nice pair of chinos.
But does anyone else want the same things as you? Very good question. Carl: I think we have to wait and see. They would never do it if there was no chance of it getting big. Why do you like them? Oliver: I think because they suggest the easygoing attitude of Ivy. I love how you wear chambray shirts and denim shirts with tailoring Simon I particularly like the Lighter Everyday Denim.
How about a polo shirt under knitwear. Yes it can, a normal shirt is much easier. But I think you just have to let it live.
Wear it and let the collar sit where it wants to. It's hard to hold those two ideas at the same time - it's almost cognitive dissonance. To feel that every piece of knitwear in the world is not right, yet also be relaxed about your collar rolling all over the place. Email Not published. Notify me of followup comments via e-mail.
You can also subscribe without commenting. Yeah, Simon is really putting his Oxbridge education to use — or so it seems. It all looks lovely nonetheless. We use 2 ply lambswool. Personally I found the merino sweaters by Smedley are both hard wearing and stylish, can be worn user jackets as well. I can happily see myself darning lambswool like this. I hope that makes sense.
The colours look great but not convinced by the aesthetic of the cut itself. I understand what they are saying about higher waisted trousers but the end result simply looks odd to me… almost like a crop top but without the midriff showing. The jumpers look very odd in some of those photos — ending unflatteringly high on the upper body, with a strikingly weird region of rather deliberate-looking zig-zaggy folding towards the bottom.
Simon, for reference for other buyers, would you mind letting us know which size did you go for? Thanks very much. I took Medium. The Armoury was a more conventional cut and style — Rubato is different to everything else out there. In length, in collar style and in taper. Yes I think so.
I tried a Large that belonged to Olof when he was in the pop-up, and it was too big in the shoulders for me really. This differential might be acceptable if a tangible aspect of value other than boutique uniqueness , were being offered but the argument is not, successfully at least, being made. This aspect is the key strength but I question the price point.
Possibly of greater interest is the immaculate cut of the trousers…. Stock pieces from a factory brand will always be a lot cheaper. I noticed that Luca faloni moved from online only to having own retail presence as its hard to sell upmarket clothing online.
I think that was more about growth than anything — he was certainly selling enough online. At the moment no trunk shows are planned. However do keep an eye out on instagram and our website for information regarding these things in the future. How would you wear that green though?
Perhaps a navy serge. I maintain the unique pattern is the most important USP and not a bad one either. I still question the manufacturing source; the brand might have more market sustainability if some transparency was apparent. Again, no problem, as Johnstones produce fine garments with high quality wool. Such as original design. Looks great! I love the creative take on the presentation and lookbook. Nice to see a new take on cut and silhouette combined with the subtle colour palette plus a focus on sturdy, long lasting fibers.
At this price point I would much rather go for a quality lambswool sourced and produced in Scottland rather than an entry level cashmere. I like the look and the price is more reasonable than many of the items sually featured here — i might actually be able to afford this! Simon a question on Corduroy. I recently got a great cord brisbane moss 8 wale suit that I am very keen on indeed. The trouble is that the fresh material has a lustre and sheen that I am not so keen on.
Will a dry clean have the same effect? No sorry Josua. There are no current plans to do it again — but I might bring it back again briefly as a made to order, if you think that might be of interest? I second this, and if it could be made to measure i. Smedley for example is not as fine as yours but in my experience still good value for money. Hi Josua, Yes it is good value, certainly, and a good make.
