Haha, we shipped all of the stuff with UPS thank god.
And man, only the karaoke in heaven has "Straight Outta Compton." It would be my DREAM to do that song. Or even better - just the Dre verses on "100 Miles and Running."
We did play an embarrassing amount of N.W.A. in the rental car though. We had the most gangsta Chevy Malibu in LA. That's what you get when you're a gold member of Hertz.
I have some bad news on the Austrian fabric - and the Italia shirts in general.
We had a standing order for them, and I couldn't get the guy on the horn no matter what. It's not looking good for us actually getting them. Ditto on any future runs of Marcellos, as this guy was the agent for those jackets.
THAT SAID, for everyone who liked the Italia shirts - I'll have a new collection to show you shortly. We're calling it "Epaulet Navy Label," and you guessed it - the shirts will have a new Navy label. Well, actually the second run of shirts will, as I wanted the first ones to be made quickly, and the labels were delayed. But anyway, they'll nicely fill the gap that Italia left. The shape is going to be a strong buttondown collar (you'll dig the roll on this), no pocket on the front, and thick, stacked MOP buttons. Similar pricing to main line, and the fit is close to Italia - just a *tiny* bit more relaxed than our usual fit but otherwise very consistent. The first two items will be Blue and White OCBDs with ticking stripe cloth inside the collar. It's a cool, subtle detail. The follow up pieces will be done in real Thomas Mason broadcloth, and they'll be anglo checks and patterns - actually very close to the Austrian goods that we planned.
The OCBD's should land in a few weeks, and the Thomas Mason goods will come around the end of October / early November. We have a lot of potential to grow this line, and I think that you guys will really dig it.
Not at the moment, but we'll post it up as soon as it hits!
First post here but long time lurker like so many other.....anyone know if the carmina jodphur order is still open? Is states it closed on the 24rth of Sept but I can still order my size.....I noticed there was a post earlier that mentioned the wholecut order was being kept open till Monday...does this also apply for the jodphur?
YES - actually we reopened it. We need to take two more orders on the Jodphur to put it into work, so it's open all week.
We've got 100 pairs arriving Wed-Thurs. I'm hoping that a bunch of these are pre-ordered Balmoral Boots, but the majority are new items. I'll be able to give the rundown once the arrive.
In the world of jackets, I think that the Eisenhowers and the Mulberry (Dylan convinced me that a Little Italy name is better than a Donnie Brasco name) will make a big splash next week. It was cool enough for me to wear the Navy Eisenhower sample today, and it felt great. The fit's excellent, and the leather detail finishing is really nice. The calfskin inside the cuffs feels like butta! I can't wait to see how the other fabrications came out.
Ah sorry about that, I figured that it would go quickly. But we'll have a lot more coming, there's plenty of Flannel to go around this Fall.
