I want to add a permanent cuff to them. Do you think the weight is too heavy to do so?

Thank you sir and enjoy them! I'd agree with NYR, these are just fine to cuff. You may want to get them tapered a bit too if you want a slim fit at the ankle - those cuffs will add some bulk given the weight of the cloth.

I guess I'll wash first then have them hemmed next time.

Oh man, sorry to hear that! But try wearing them for a day. The seat should stretch back out just fine. And the inseam will get longer as the fabric breaks back in. You can try pulling on it as well. This length shrinkage happens with denim as well - as cotton tends to contract after drying - but most guys don't notice it there because they don't hem jeans as high as chinos. It won't be a huge amount, but you may find that it's enough after some wear.

Thank you and enjoy them!

Ah, Adele is the shirting maestro, but I know that we've got a gingham oxford popover going live this week. Should have our first Fall shirts in the next few weeks as well - both Epaulet and Ashland lines.

Are the wool rivets on schedule to launch next week or the week after? Also, any ETA for the cotton herringbone rivet?
Any update on the Carmina Saddle shell belts? Maybe in the next shipment?
Thanks!

Sure thing:
1. Wool Rivets are going live tomorrow - we'll post them here once they go up. They came out freaking fantastic
2. No ETA on the cotton h-bone rivets at the moment, but I imagine around the end of October. Still backordered on the cloth from Japan
3. Saddle shell belts should definitely be in the next shipment - around three weeks or so.

Can you give any hints to what style of boots you will be releasing from Carmina?  Also, any new Alden Indies coming in?  I got a new pair from ebay for  $330, but that was before I realized I needed to size down .5 (I purchased a 10BD, but need  9.5), so I am thinking about selling and springing for a new pair if they will have a sole that works ok in the rain.

Whoa, they came out great! Thank you so much for picking them up! And man, don't have any remorse on the teal - that color is absolutely killer. We loved it when it arrived. Pair those and the plaids with a solid navy jacket and you're good to go. Looking forward to the fit pics!

We should restock Indy boots pretty soon - the next few weeks or so. Getting the new Cigar Shell Wolverines in about three weeks. And with Carmina, they'll be wingtip boots a plenty, a captoe boot, and I believe a plain toe as well.

Adele should have some swatches, I'll see if we can post them up.

And I believe that you have a Liberty Fabric mashup shirt coming your way icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Absolutely, we can do that for you. Just drop Matt a PM whenever you want to get the ball rolling.

Do I need to size up to Medium? Been lifting a lot this summer, and the medium shirts are starting to feel a little restrictive...thoughts?
Shorts are old school beat to hell 501 selvedge cut down, shoes Alden, ink fresh.

I think that the shirt looks good - that's how most of our in-store guys want their shirts to fit. And can we get some shots of the new tattoo? Congrats on that!

Hey, Mike...sent you an email back just now regarding this!

Two new items up in the shirts section... mwink[1].gif

By the way, that new popover shirt is a bit similar to the previously done navy/brown gingham - and that one has officially become my all-time favorite shirt icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif. I'm wondering what other shirt-owning guys prefer.

post #14810 of 37564
Are you guys able to have these made in the Rudy cut?

I emailed you but never heard back.

In my dreams...lol. Maybe this is a bit dramatic, but Ep's fall releases + my bank account is making me think of that stupid theoretical you're on a sinking boat with your wife and your mother, and there's only 1 life vest. Who would you give it to? The poor pants I have to leave behind. Why?!!?! (Insert Don't Be a Menace to SC While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood clip here)

I got those grey herringbones as well and picked them up this weekend; already took them to the tailor and honestly, they are spectacular. You are gonna love them.

Didn't want this to slip by unnoticed...Cigar Shell Wolverines? Haven't heard a whisper about these. Tell me more. biggrin.gif

While everything looked good as swatches, the teal flannel and the windowpane herringbone are amazing in person! I am most excited about these two.
