I'll definitely be by to try on that sample! Thanks, Mike.
Just saw the IG post from last week on the Individualized Artisan Collar: https://instagram.com/p/BBDibZ_xn8i/ Looks great, but what's so striking to me is the point length: 3 3/8" !! My beloved Gitman Sartorial Cutaway (V-CA) is plenty long, I thought, but is only 2 7/8". An extra half inch is a big difference with collar points, and I'm very curious to see the first Artisan Collar MTOs roll off the line. Mike, any plans to run stock shirts with the Artisan Collar?...
I take the same size, and wouldn't recommend sizing down for the Rivets.
I'm a fan of the pony express myself.   Also anyone else notice the rate hike in USPS Priority Mail? Ridiculous. I'm sure Mike and company will notice before too long, if they haven't already.
 Five years ago, such a levelheaded question would have drawn pitchforks and mobs here on SF! @chrispy650 it definitely looks slim -- slimmer than I like. The pulling on the bottom button is telling. If I were you, I'd take out the back darts. A very close look will probably reveal stitch lines once they're out, but on a pattern like that it'll likely be nigh impossible to see. Just got back from a warm sandy beach where I wore my old Liberty chrysanthemum shirt almost...
 Nice! Got the same for the REDA except 2-button, not 3-roll-2. And I went with inset flap pockets with a ticket pocket.  Don't worry so much about it. It's going to go with almost everything, as long as your trousers aren't too matchy-matchy with the colors in the fabric. The eggshell linens would look great, as would denim. Just wear and enjoy!  Haha, I just got the SC, not the full suit (2-button, unconstructed, patch hip pockets and welt breast pocket, brown horn). But...
 Thanks! You as well. It was the sleeper hit of the bunch for me. I waffled and waned between tan horn and brown, and then went with the brown. Will I regret it??? Did the deep purple liner, as my two favorite necktie colors are green and purple, and I wanted to see the two colors together. As it's an unconstructed shoulder and therefore 3/8 lined, there's very little liner anyway.  It all depends on how you wear it. If you wear it with a blue BD and bowtie like this guy...
 Placed an order yesterday for that precise item! (Just without the surgeon's cuffs.) I went with the unconstructed shoulder. Interested to see how that turns out with a cotton fabric. Which horn? Also, there are way too many POWs, glen checks, and other large checks hanging around the EFF, especially the one-of-a-kind section. My wool-cashmere glen check sport coat is one of my most worn. A deceptively easy wear both with solids and patterns, since it's such a unique...
