It might be GQ, but it's still good to see Epaulet getting attention: http://www.gq.com/style/blogs/the-gq-eye/2013/09/epaulet-spiewak-n-3b.html
I've always loved this jacket! Is there any chance the material is available for a special order?Thanks!
The other solution to this issue of course is just to order a matching grey flannel jacket I did that last year and it's been great. The jacket on its own is just as versatile as the trousers, in fact I've ended up wearing them as separates more often than as a suit, I think. Highly recommended.
You don't need to worry with either fabric. Well, I think there was a fully-lined Harris tweed trouser offered last year which must have felt a bit bulkier. But you definitely won't feel like you're wearing snow pants! Still, you might think about starting with flannel (a navy or grey is especially easy to wear), it's a little bit more formal and conventional if you're intimidated.
Minor point, but regardless of which is heavier in practice I've found that flannel often wears warmer because the wind cuts right through unlined tweed. Fully lined tweed would be, I'm sure, the warmest of all. Not a big deal but I thought I'd mention it because I was a bit surprised at the difference...Mike, I feel as though you've answered this in the past, but I can't remember: are you planning on offering the polo shirts with long sleeves for the fall/winter?
Thanks for the response. That's fair enough, I know it's not a trivial change. Looking forward to hearing more about the new developments!
Mike, have you ever asked Southwick about offering shoulder slope options for MTO jackets, ie sloped, flat, normal? I know it's probably not a small tweak, and might involve an upcharge, but it's usually tricky and expensive to get done after the fact so it might still be appealing for people who need it. Plus, the MTO options have gotten to be so flexible that it's just about the only thing left between my weirdly proportioned body and a perfect fit
No experience with leaf but I have two pairs of moss. I think they're just about the perfect all-around chino, close enough to a neutral grey to go with almost any colour but just warm/olive enough to be a bit more interesting.
That could be great, although I don't know if I've ever seen a DB Harris tweed?For what it's worth, I'm thinking of ordering one of the Harris tweeds as a SB partly to use as outerwear. I have one in the navy herringbone from a couple of years ago and it's great on cool fall days, just add a scarf and gloves and it's plenty warm. DB might be even better as outerwear, but could also be a bit less versatile as a jacket. I'm thinking of the navy/grey houndstooth for maximum...
Will the Harris tweed MTO only be up for a short time? I'm trying to decide whether to order one, but would love to see some of the other new MTO fabrics before deciding... Thanks!
