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!
FF jackets look great! I'm tempted by the Rust and Pale Blue and the Loden and Burnt Orange. Would it be possible to get a sense of how heavy those two are, either by oz or just in a general sense? Also, is there any chance of getting photos of those two swatches set back and at an angle, the way you've done with some of the other swatches (Donegal Grey or Clay Tobacco Houndstooth for example)? I find those photos really help to get a sense of the fabric. Thanks!
The MTO jackets look great! Two quick questions: I think you've mentioned in the past that the in between sizes scale every measurement up or down, but I thought I'd double check about the length. I think a 40 is 1" longer than a 38", so a 39" would be .5" longer than a 38"? Also, the fit is close to perfect on me except the shoulders. I need a bit of shoulder slope, especially for a jacket with so little padding (and I haven't tried one in the Napoli cut, which I...
Is there any chance the "wheat corduroy" would be close enough to the chocolate cords from the most recent factory finds trousers that they could be worn together? I wouldn't expect them to, but they do look very similar on screen... Thanks!
+1 A suit in something like the grey or navy linen you offered in Walts last year would be fantastic. They were my favourite summer pants, and an unlined jacket would make them hard to beat.Also, if you're thinking of doing more of the Napoli in duck canvas, please think about using the moss fabric. I've found that colour to be really versatile and easy to wear in the chinos, but it would still be a bit different.
Are you still expecting a restock of these cmx Steinbeck boots?Also, any hints about the new Southwick stuff? Thanks!
You might already know this, but if you try to add more units of an item to your basket than are available it will tell you how many are left. So, just add 10 of whatever you're interested in and when it warns you there aren't that many available you'll be able to see exactly how many there are. This might not always account for in-store sales, etc. but it's good if you just want to know if there are only one or two of something left in your size.
