Re: Magnoli Spectre Mock Turtleneck FINISHED!

We'll see how the charcoal comes out first. It's tricky doing this in cotton as the cashmere has more stretch, so that small neck-hole could be an issue. Our designers say the neck needs to be made larger, but I'm having a prototype made in the exact size of the N.Peal regardless. I'll post news here hopefully within two weeks.

Re: Magnoli Spectre Mock Turtleneck FINISHED!

Ok... here is the initial prototype in cotton:

Some things to note:

-The neck size can stand to be increased without ruining the look. The one shown here is the same measurement as the N.Peal Medium, but is a bit small to get the head through. It's plenty snug on the neck, so I think it's safe to make these a bit bigger.

-The color needs to be a little darker... not much, but I'd call this more of a dark grey than charcoal.

-There are a few details that I'm going to tweak, but these can't even be seen in photos, so not much sense in pointing them all out.

All in all, I'm quite happy with this as prototype as an all year, easy-care alternative to the cashmere original. The next iteration should be just right.

Kind regards,
Magnoli

Looks like you're off to a great start.  Looking forward to the final version.  ajb007/martini

Re: Magnoli Spectre Mock Turtleneck FINISHED!

Oh, this is nice and in cotton. Very excited about this now. I agree about the neck, given the different material, it looks way tighter than the N Peal. My only suggestion is that it looks too long and loose in the waste. As I think you are going for ready to wear sizes, anyone can just get that detail worked out by a tailor, so I would understand if you left it long and loose rather than short and fitted to allow personal tailoring. Just my two cents. Can't wait to grab one of these. Any idea about price range yet that I can add to my Spectre budget?  ajb007/biggrin

Re: Magnoli Spectre Mock Turtleneck FINISHED!

Yeah, I'm going to double check all the measurements before we start production. As for price, these will likely be in the range of $60-$75 (shipping included).

Re: Magnoli Spectre Mock Turtleneck FINISHED!

Oh, that's a good price, especially with the SA look in a more wearable cotton material (was huge deal for me living in Florida). Fantastic work.  ajb007/martini

Re: Magnoli Spectre Mock Turtleneck FINISHED!

I would say it is too long and loose in the stomach down to the waist.

Getting a sweater tailored is a pain, and it's better to keep it slim in the actual garment making process.

33

Re: Magnoli Spectre Mock Turtleneck FINISHED!

Good point TheExit148. Unfortunately, I take an XS to an XXS to get a perfect fit off the rack, so unless Magnoli plans on making such size offerings (hint, hint, wink, wink), I will have to be taking this to the tailor's anyway  ajb007/crap  to get the fitted SA look I know I'll want.

Re: Magnoli Spectre Mock Turtleneck FINISHED!

I'm expecting the final prototype to be ready for photography early next week.

We ended up doing a custom run of cloth to get the color just right. We had to make so much that we'll also be offering our popular Drive Henleys in this color as well.

And... just in time, we've finished the perfect jacket to go with the turtleneck:

Re: Magnoli Spectre Mock Turtleneck FINISHED!

Looking forward to the mock neck. Very interesting that you have the jacket up on the site already. MTM? Will there be a camel version with the Morocco collar?

37

Re: Magnoli Spectre Mock Turtleneck FINISHED!

Wow!  Very impressive, Tony!  That jacket just screams JV!  If I didn't know any better, I'd swear it was the genuine thing. What's the price point on the jacket, and how is the sizing being handled?  Please tell me it's standard like S, M, L, etc.

Also, do you plan to tackle the Matchless jacket?  I think there will be quite a few people interested in that piece as well.

Kind regards,
Craig

Re: Magnoli Spectre Mock Turtleneck FINISHED!

Price is $650 USD (shipping included), completely made-to-measure. We can do the Matchless as well, same price... just e-mail sales@magnoliclothiers.com to commission...

Any update on the Mock Neck?  ajb007/martini

Re: Magnoli Spectre Mock Turtleneck FINISHED!

Yeah, very excited about the mock neck. Just waiting to pull the trigger.

Any plans on doing the Morocco polo? I know there has got to be many of us who won't be buying the TF one. Would love to see the polo in a ready to wear deal.

I just approved the final prototype. The custom color came out great and it's a very comfortable shirt (definitely a cooler alternative to the cashmere original). Production will begin shortly and hoping to have these finished around late October/early November.

As for the polo... if someone could e-mail us high-res shots of the original, we could look into doing a run...

Re: Magnoli Spectre Mock Turtleneck FINISHED!

Nice pic! loving the look. Can't wait for the mock neck man. Glad to hear its coming along fine. I'll work on getting some shots of the polo from some of the guys that bought one when they come in.

Re: Magnoli Spectre Mock Turtleneck FINISHED!

I've been wearing the new cotton turtleneck prototype and it's just what we were after. It's comfortable, not too warm, looks great and... ready to be thrown in the washing machine with no worries! ajb007/wink

Re: Magnoli Spectre Mock Turtleneck FINISHED!

I'm interested in one, Indy.

Re: Magnoli Spectre Mock Turtleneck FINISHED!

I'd be interested in a mock turtle neck indy, I also would be very interested in a Tom Ford polo alternative!!!!

Re: Magnoli Spectre Mock Turtleneck FINISHED!

Hey Indy, not sure if you noticed this post:

http://www.ajb007.co.uk/topic/46775/spe … ers-found/

Seems like a guy found the trousers that go along with the mock neck. There is a lot of information on that post about the type of material and features. Even if they get a rerelease on this one, I know I would like to get a frugal replica. Was wondering if you plan on making the trousers too. If so, would they be ready to wear or custom order type. Thanks man.

Re: Magnoli Spectre Mock Turtleneck FINISHED!

Tried this on today. A decent alternative at Zara for $30 US. It felt comfy!
