Goodyear Welt Samples   Hey guys, I'm getting ready to do our first GYW order. I'd love to hear what you guys think! I'm shopping around for feedback on Reddit too, so here's what I posted there:    I had a fantastic time doing an AMA here a few months back. At the time, I was speaking of our upcoming Goodyear Welt collection. I'm happy to say that my first two samples came through! I'd love to get your feedback on the overall styling and anything else that you'd like...
  @FLW @Thefenceposts I'll run the samples by you guys as we develop it. It won't exactly be a Teba jacket - it's going to be more like the Teba and our New England shirtjacket had a kid.  I'm definitely working on a lapel that will be cool and Teba-ish.  And the pockets could be either three open patch or open patch breast and button flap hip. I'll take a vote on it as we get closer.    @Patrick R yup, the Wilshire is sadly discontinued. @applky is entirely...
 @cyclohexane oh nice! Great lighting setup there. And I'll have to mention @no frills here - he's a bit Noctilux enthusiast too!  I owned a M240 for a little bit, but it turns out that I'm horrible with manual focus. I really enjoying shooting the Leica Q though.   @Medoc arriving very soon - they're coming with my huge-ass shipment which should be leaving any day. They're a bit of a surprise, but I'll just say that he's a Yankees fan.   @Duke Silver great choices on...
 @FLW I love the shirt. As a distinct non-runner, I'm definitely envious of that. My last attempt at putting on a popover was slightly less smooth than my 2yo daughter attempting to put on a shirt. I needed help taking it off after getting it on halfway. Matt Smith used to wear them really well too.    @konadog I'd say the same thing as @SherifEnt - size up to a 43 and you should be good. Measure out the sleeve inseam and figure where you'd like it to hit - you can give us...
Ok, I'm just gonna throw this out here. On my way out of the Southwick fabric room, I came across this "Cinco De Mayo" fabric. They were shutting down (union rules) so I had no time to photograph or video it. Not even sure what the yarn is, but it felt like some kind of wool-cotton blend.    This was bought by a past wholesale client who abandoned it there. I cannot resist ordering myself a coat in this cloth because.. I can't pass on the opportunity to have a Mexican...
Couple fit photos from today: Vittorio Farmers Check Jacket Individualized DJA Sea Island Cotton MTO Shirt Taylor Trouser Grey Hopsack VASS Ilcea Museum Calf Double Monks Barbour Tokito "Horse Riding" Jacket AP Royal Oak Chrono Check out the shirt and jacket mix. Although many people don't like to match check shirts and jackets, I do it all of the time as long as the shirt pattern is subtle enough. The look of this coat will give off a similar vibe to the Firenze or...
 @onehotchili I can speak from personal experience on this one. Anyone who knows me has seen me wear a navy sportcoat. I grabbed one of our original Vittorio jackets from Fall 2013 in this exact fabric (LP 4-season pique) and it's the only navy jacket that I own. I wear it 2-3 times a week and I've traveled all over the world with it. I definitely don't care for it like I should and I often use a shoulder strap with it. It's held up beautifully!This fabric isn't the...
 @FLW these came out incredible! The look is super-boss with that cool shirt too!   @Pastor I'd do it with either blonde horn or brown horn. Can't go wrong with either of them. If you're cool with blonde, then do that - I think that it will be a beautiful contrast with the suit color.   @FrankCowperwood haha very cool!   @BenLeaman you guys are going to be a gang!   @adamf009 all of the Ends promo fabrics can only be done with a single vent. They needed to get some economy...
 @Duke Silver oh yes, the dark indigo linen is absolutely beautiful! Size up one in the waist to keep it comfortable as a Rudy trouser in really hot weather. Or consider doing TTS in the Taylor - we've sold a ton of linen Taylor & Gable trousers this season. The other option would be Navy Seersucker - I'm a huge proponent of that fabric and I'm bringing myself a pair for LA. It's excellent and might hit that casual look that you're after.   @eljlakers glad that you guys...
 @JR Magat we've got enough for 5 suits. It's very cool!   @applky it's on the realm of a typical suiting fabric. I'd prefer the REDA on a really hot day, but both of them are essentially 4-season suiting wools and will only be so comfortable when the humidity ratchets up.  And yes, The REDA ground is a very soft grey and Firenze is cream. I whipped up a quick side-by-side shot...    @Duke Silver sorry that I missed this!  Yup, the Grey Yarn Dye Twill is the exact fabric...
