I can do in between sizes, but will probably only do it on the most basic colors, like this fall's light gray flannel and in limited quantities. I think odd size guys are used to moving to an even size pair, but vice versa has me a little cautious, and could leave me stuck with a bunch of size 31 and 35 trousers.

Don't sweat it. It is a little confusing as is, but I got impatient and didn't want to wait until the update was done.

Hey Jamison-

Bummed you're not making any 28" waist sizes........... I think altering a 30 might be to problematic. They look great though-

I'd love to see 31s if you can get 'em.

First, let me say the pants look great! Since we're both in NYC what months/temperature do you think the twill's can be worn in? I've been agonizing these last few months trying to figure out where I could find good quality unhemmed (How else can I can the styleforum 2" cuff?) dress pants at a reasonable price. You sir have solved my dilemma.

Maybe it's just me, but I don't entirely believe in all season wool. You're in a climate, IIRC, which might make more sense, but in New York the big difference in seasons makes it difficult. I don't want to wear the same pants for 20° winter days as I do for 85° summer days. There's a nice super 120s or 140s I'm looking at for Spring, but it would be just too light and silky for dead cold winter here.

J,
will be waiting for measurements and 120s and 140s for Spring, I am sure I am going to like them more.
I hope these are not very low rise.

So of the current offerings, which material would you recommend for an extremely warm climate? The twill?

Would you consider taking pre-orders for odd sizes? This way you wouldn't be stuck with inventory and those of off sized people can get what we want.

+1

Smaller sizes of Incotex always seem to sell really quickly in the B&S here so I can't imagine you'd have any trouble with 28s.

Hey J, Great meeting you again tonight. Really enjoyed seeing your products. Was very impressed by how much better they look in real life than in in pictures, which is not to say the pictures look bad. Looking forward to seeing the things you have in the works for the spring! m

J -- any plans for offering those very nice looking trousers in a 38 waist?

I'll be making some US 28 / EU 44 in the spring, and it looks like I might be reordering some pairs tomorrow. If I do, I'll add the size. Given the expense of getting this going, I had to be a little conservative to start.

That's the idea! I would wear the twills in NYC from September to April or May, depending on the weather.

Well, these are intentionally fall/winter trousers, so I'm not sure any would be the best for an extremely warm climate. The 120s might be the best of what's currently available. There will be a good selection of lighter weight pants comes Spring.

Yes, I definitely would, but the problem is that delivery lead times can be very long--i.e. months, and there's always the possibility that they won't deliver on time or a complete order.

No plans to offer 38 right now. I've found in the past that sizes 38 can be hard to sell, at least at the price I'd need to charge. Also, it seems that there's more demand for pleats in those sizes, which I'm not carrying right now. That said, I'm always open to the possibility of ordering them in the future.
post #148 of 4759
p.s. To all the guys waiting measurements or shipment of your orders, I'm working through them now. The unprecedented volume of orders has lengthened our usual 24 shipping window a little. Especially when combined with the first Howard Yount/SF get together this weekend. But they're going out.
post #149 of 4759
Chorse, the trousers sound perfect then. I will definitely be ordering a pair of the twills soon. Do you think you'll be offering a slim single or double pleat pair of pants anytime soon? That's definitely more difficult than finding a good priced slim flat fronts.
post #150 of 4759
Not in spring. I'll definitely consider a single pleat for fall 2010, which I think can look very nice.
