Really don't understand the lapels on the city coat - they just look "off" and don't flow with the rest of the jacket. I think a more traditional notch lapel would look and fall better. I'm curious what made the Gustin team settle on the current verson.
If that was the case then why would they change the tag? "Designed in California" is a deliberate change...not that I care, but we saw that the Hyde collection is produced in Portugal (I think?), so wouldn't surprise me if other products have been transferred to other factories.
Indigo chinos sound cool, as would olive and/or charcoal.
Will you offer any other casual pants (like a 5-pocket non-denim material, chino with patch back pockets, etc.)? Also, did you rule against making the shirt jacket you mentioned a few weeks ago?
