Received mine. Unfortunately, they ignored a lot of the spec (wrong welt, wrong edge, with piping (was supposed to be no piping), no leather midsole), and messed up wingtip. 44th street already put in a replacement order for me with a slightly modified makeup, to make it more generic and less likely to get messed up. Remade, less ambitious makeup will be natural shell cambridge, double JR, transparent brown edge, transparent brown flat welt, matching piping. Ah well, I'm...
Sent an email to the NYC 44th street store. My NY trunk show order was shipped yesterday, will likely be out for delivery tomorrow. Specs were: Natural shell Cambridge Blind eyelets Black dainite sole Leather midsole Natural edge Natural reverse welt Natural shell cordovan half-sock liner (they were willing to do it for my Neumoks, so let's see if they did it for these...)
The tag that used to say "designed and handmade in California" now just says "designed in California." So it's not a missing tag or anything. The same tag is there, it just leaves off a few crucial words.
So, just noticed that my Yosemites no longer have on their tag that they're made in California/USA, just designed in California. Now, the website still declares them made in California and I can't imagine that's not the case. But any reason for the shirts to no longer say that? Makes me worry that some garments might start being made abroad.
Got two of my four yosemites in today, and they are great. Definitely heavier than last years, and I love them even more like this. The red this year is not the same as last years, though it's a great color. Maybe next year bring back the brighter red? I ordered two of the reds, and I got the gray in. I might order another gray and another navy blue when they go live on the website, since experience has proven that I'll otherwise be waiting all year for the next batch.
Just got shipment notifications for my Yosemite orders! Not sure if this is pre-printing of labels or if they're actually going out, but I'm excited either way.
So just grabbed the vest in both the navy and gray. Couldn't decide which color to get, and really it was an easy decision. I got the brushed twill shirts in this Monday, and definitely wish I'd bought my previous shirts in a 40 instead of a 38 with how much everything has tightened up post-washing (with the exception of my indigo star jack, which stayed put more or less). For pants, I have to say, I don't think any of the TS pants have ever been what I'd call TTS. I'm a...
I wear a medium in J Crew slims and BB extra slims. I'm going for the size 40 on the Yosemite, because in my experience "pre-shrunk" is a lie unless you are meticulous about hand washing and hang drying. My size 38 from last year definitely shrank a bit, especially in the sleeves. Anyway, just went ahead and ordered one in each color, trying not to convince myself to buy a an extra red.
Go ahead and order the color you want. Mike was more than willing to cancel my 1st order (which I'd made when Cigar was available but Cognac "wasn't") in light of the glitch. I think as long as you make the request now, well ahead of the October 13th deadline, they have no issue with overriding the no cancellations policy, in light of the inventory issues.
I decided that I thought better of ordering two pairs, and downgraded to just a pair of cognac, letting my cigars go back into the wild (that was late last night, it looks like the pair already got snapped back up). That said, I'm surprised everyone is jumping on the cigar over the cognac. In all other contexts, light colored shells are the grail colors. I would have thought cognac would have sold out instantly, yet there are still pairs available. It's such an amazing color.
