Did the waist stretch at all? I'm having the hemmed, and I'm trying to see if I would really need the +0.25in to waist after some wears.

I haven't worn them enough to gauge that. I actually took advantage of the split waistband and let mine out a little bit when I got them hemmed. Eager for them to soften up, though, since they still feel just a touch constricting, even though there's plenty of room in the waist now.

That's probably what i'll do. Thanks for that!

You'll love it - it's our best selling shirt by far. Japanese fabric, US-made, our signature ass-kicking cut. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Ah, I wanted to get to it, but things were nutzo at our Manhattan shop, so I didn't get through any of it. We'll work to get all of them online Wed, along with new Carminas and our dandy silk scarves.

Haha, thanks for that! I was happy with this outfit. While wearing it, I sold dudes a bunch of pants, shirts and jackets during the day. And then managed to slam five Pork Slap beers at the Self Edge party right afterwards. It effectively transitions from work to nightlife.

Hey Mike, it's clear and cold here in Anchorage; it's been averaging high 20's all week (and it's only going to get colder into the winter ha-ha). Between the duck canvas and the moleskin trousers, which do you think is the more cold proof pant? They both look fantastic with the edge going to the moleskins because of its "dress-up" appearance. Cheers. laugh.gif

Mike, do you think there's enough units of the plum herringbone shirt in XL to wait it out until they go on the site midweek?

I have a couple pairs of the Regiment Twill trousers that I bought earlier in the year when they were $150 (now they're $165 I think). I absolutely love the fit of Epaulet trousers but didn't want to spend over $200 for wool trousers, so I basically scrolled through and found the cheapest - well, least expensive trousers - and went with that.

They've been washed and worn many times, as they're my favourite trousers, but they still remain pretty rigid; they'll drape nowhere close to what you'd find on a pair of wool trousers. Due to this rigidity, they also don't hold a crease well at all - I would have to press them after every wear if I wanted to maintain that sharp crease (I don't). I also notice that they've started to wear in certain spots the way that cotton wears I suppose - a certain fading or wearing away of colour towards white. I guess kind of the way jeans fade, but of course not to that extent. Again, I think this is how cotton wears, and probably wouldn't happen with wool.

To sum it up, in retrospect I should've just spent the extra $50-60 on a pair of wool trousers if I was going to at all, and unless there's something special about the Regiment Twill that you really like, I don't think it's worth it at the $165 they're currently at.

Ooo... I've been trying to decide if I want to get a shirt done up from that fabric. Much easier to decide seeing it actually on someone to judge the pattern scale. Very nice.

Two Rivet chinos from recent days:

Red Bedford cords, which are excellent:


Leaf ducks, also very nice:


Both will look good with some cognac shell balmoral boots... wink.gif
post #16060 of 37440
Red cords are looking really good! I haven't seen red pants working well many times.
post #16061 of 37440
I usually think that silk scarves nonfunctional and silly but I'm kind of excited to see the ones going up this week.

This is also my favorite of the bunch because on paper it should be extremely stuffy -- the blazer + cords combo paired with the button-down collar & tie combo -- but the execution isn't, at all. Plus, it looks perfect for fall (which is starting to finally hit LA now, thankfully).

Speaking of fall, exploded buffalo check flannel peeking out here. Not a great pic, but some fun fall color.

This shirt is so cozy--and that's a word I usually only use w/in the confines of my own home.
