It's thick enough to be a serious leather jacket but you can get a medium weight for a more fashion style jacket while remaining rugged unlike (Zegna IMO). So can you tell us what kind of leather its going to be? You don't need to release who you're working with or the style of jacket

Cool. Our leather will absolutely be on par with what Aero is using. This thing is going to be a serious heirloom piece which will age incredibly. More details to come soon - I promise.

Yes sir! We're finalizing the fit and details on those Canadian shawl neck's right now. I've got some killer colors for it too.

Let me know if you can please!

Good call - you're going to love that jacket. I wore the hell out of mine this past Spring. It's quite wind resistant, so you can also make it through fairly chilly days when you layer it with a sweater.

Keep up the great work Mike and Adele! I can't wait until more lawn ginghams come in!

Thank you sir! We'll holler at you once they arrive.

Probably two weeks. I expect LA to finish them in the next 7 days or so, and then ship them to us in NYC.

I've got a Purple Overdye Oxford and a Navy Overdye Oxford shipping between now and 7/15. The price will be $150 on them. I'm carrying XS through Large. Drop me a line if you'd like to reserve a unit or two.

The rest of our collection will come in the Fall. We're doing some of the specialty pieces that Context launched today and a run of Grape, Red, and Blue Chambrays.

That linen micro-gingham is calling my name. As are the blue rivet chinos. I already have a pair of the british khaki and am in love. They're my favorite pair of pants right now.

Hey mike - you quoted me but didn't answer! Please let me know your thoughts on the ties for bigger guys. Thanks!

Oh sorry that I missed responding the first time. The length on these is a standard 58" and we've definitely sold them to customers your height in the store. But if you have a really long torso, you might want to compare that length against a tie that you already own.

In terms of the width, these are a great option for a larger guy who wants a slimmer tie. The width is only a bit thinner than the usual Brooks Brothers specs, but the end on them is a lot wider, so the entire tie maintains a fairly straight shape going up to the collar. It somehow looks slimmer without actually being slimmer.

One of our regular customers is a lawyer here in Brooklyn. He's bought every McNairy tie that we carry. He finds them conservative enough to wear to his firm, but likes the fact that they have this small design quirk which sets them apart from the pack.

Awesome - really glad that you like them! Special editions chino's should be landing really soon.

BTW Mike, it's my birthday today. Any discounts?
post #1962 of 57754
There have probably already been enough comments on the chinos, but for what it's worth I just got my pair taken in at the waist and now that they fit here are my thoughts: they seem to be quite well made, infinitely better than most mall-brand chinos, and feel as though they'll last a long time, they definitely seem to be a bargain at $135; I like the slightly olive khaki much, much better than the more yellow 'Gap'-style chino; the fit is really good, I'd prefer a slightly higher rise (just .5 inch or so) and maybe a touch longer (I am 6'3") but those are just nits, thankfully they're a completely different species from the standard-issue dad chinos. Good work!

Now you just need to offer them in more fabrics!

Ah, happy birthday! Keep an eye out in your box, they'll be a lil' something inside.

Thanks for picking them up - and thanks for the detailed feedback. Really glad that you're pleased with them.

Oh, and just a heads-up - I'm flying to LA tomorrow, so I won't be on the forum as much as usual. I'm going to oversee our production, work some new pieces out for Fall, have a few meetings, get drunk with Joel K of KZO, take pictures, eat a maple bacon donut, go to the beach, and listen to a lot of Tupac while stuck in traffic.

I love LA!

Also, in case you guys didn't catch this, we an interview recently with "Commerce with a Conscience." It's one of my favorite blogs, and Brad asked a lot of solid questions. Check it out when you have a minute:

Aww. Thanks, Mike! In the meantime, I'm going to pick out another shirt. I think I need another white oxford.
