Flannel lined rivet chinos would be epic.

That's the best idea I've heard all day!

Thank you sir! You're going to love this jacket.

Oh no, this one only came in size 38 and 40. I only had four units to cut.

We'll have more tweed and heavyweight sportcoats in about 4 weeks. These two jackets were special buys, and I was able to get a limited amount of cloth off-price and make up the jacket for about $100 less than it would typically be. But there's only 3 units of Peat Marl, and about 6 of the Olive Windowpane.

Well, these are lighter than Harris Tweed. I think that they would be a great Fall/Winter piece for LA. And in colder climates, they're a good weight to wear in a heated indoor setting without getting too hot.

Not the chinos, but we'll have Walt's in all sorts of thick tweed and Moleskin. And the flannel chinos are quite warm.

That said, there's not a huge difference in warmth between the duck canvas chinos and a regular jean. If you're comfortable wearing a jean in the winter (normal weight, not something nutzo like Ironheart), then the duck canvas should serve you just fine.

Picked up the cocoa tweed trousers from the tailor. Slimmed down leg openings a bit and had 2" cuffs installed.

So assuming my order got through, I got a super limited edition Epaulet jacket? Sweet!icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I live in MN and last fall/winter I found the regular 8oz canvas Rivet Chinos to be sufficient if I wasn't outside for an extended period of time. I think the standard 8oz canvas might actually work better in cold weather than the 10oz duck canvas because the ducks have a pretty open weave and seemed to be cooler when worn in the summer. What I thought really worked well for MN winter are the moleskin and Cramerton Walts.

Better than heavier pants, throw on a pair of Merino tights from Icebreaker, Ibex or the like. Warmth and breathability.

I had some free time yesterday, my camera on hand, and two Epaulet pieces on, so I snapped some quick pics

Will the linen/cotton trousers drop sometime soon?

I'm not sure why new models would drop now since fall/winter is about to start (in the U.S.) anyway.

Reed: Good stuff, man.

Oh yes, it definitely went through, and you got one of the 4 that we made. Peat Marl is now totally sold out. Good timing!

Very nice, the gear is looking great!

I'm very tempted by the Olive Windowpane tweed, but I can't decide if the colours would work for me. Will the jackets you mentioned arriving in a month include anything else with a big windowpane, bright plaid, etc. or are they mostly more subdued? After picking up the navy herringbone last year I figure I need something fun smile.gif

Just grabbed a couple of shirts at Smith (Abecedarian did too!) a Gitman Blue Flannel (so sweet) and an even sweeter house shirt. Adele, fabtastic job on the new shirting, I'm also very tempted by another one of em...

Good seeing you today, NY Ranger, and nice pick-ups. I love the Ashland gingham I got. And man oh man, the new pants looked great. The purple tweeds are a thing of beauty.
post #15029 of 31245
Purple tweed? They are in store?
post #15030 of 31245
Just ordered some grey super 120s!

Second pair of Epaulet pants and my tailor commented that they're very high quality icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

They are a tad pricey and I'm stingy as fuck so I'll probably just buy a pair a month to ease the psychological torment of spending money, lol.
