Will the MTO shirts be a continuous option or are they only offered for a certain time frame?
post #19502 of 37449
NYI, that is super helpful. Thank you!!
post #19503 of 37449

You beat me to them, it is a shame that there won't be a restock on these. Anyone who got a 32 or 33 in these and find they don't work out - give me a shout! I'll take em off your hands.

Yes, the MTO shirt program is permanent. I'm working very close with the factory, so if you have any questions feel free to PM me.  

A great response so far, and this is just the beginning! We'll be layering in more fabrics as the program expands.

I'll add to Rob. This is tapered to 6.5" leg opening or so. 7.5" was original.

Thanks.

At the moment, we're not stocking any Rudy Trousers, but we can certainly help you to find your size. Feel free to drop us an email - we do it all of the time. And there are seam allowances in the waist, seat, and legs, so even if your first Rudy isn't perfect off the rack, then it will be possible to alter it quite a bit to fit.

BTW, this happened to the navy trouser also, I guess happens with all dark colors.

Ah man, that's a bummer. This is something that can happen with any cotton trousers, and it is more likely to happen with a dark color. There's a few possibilites here:

1. The dry cleaner used a spray starch, and you're seeing the residue here. In this case, a normal cold wash will most likely take that right out.
2. The steam press that was used has lime residue in it. This is caused by running "hard" water through the press, rather than distilled water. In that case, washing may remove it, or you may be able to iron it with a bit of vinegar applied to the fabric.
3. The iron was too hot for the cotton and actually scorched the fabric. This is doubtful, as burns usually show up as brownish or copper on light fabrics, and a shiny patch on dark ones. But if this is the case, you can try using hydrogen peroxide to wash out.

For anyone with this issue, the first thing to do is regularly wash and hang-dry the garment. That's most likely going to fix it. In many cases, these marks are simply caused by spray starch or dirty equipment. It can happen on dark colored shirts as well. If you guys grew up on Long Island, as I did, and have Italian American relatives, as I do, then you'd be very familiar with how black dress shirts look fresh from the dry cleaner. Believe me, my paisanos from the Island loved that Joey Buttafuoco style in the 90's, and those shirts were a must. There were plenty of white marks from pressing.

In the future, if you get the trousers dry cleaned, then ask for "Side to Side" pressing. We actually produce all of the Regiment twills this way. That fabric isn't meant to hold a crease very well, and side to side pressing eliminates all of it.

If that doesn't work and you want to explore the vinegar/hydrogen peroxide solutions, here's some links on what to do. It's not an exact science, but there's good tips in there:

But now I wonder if MTO is the better way to go. The question is whether changing the collar size would alter the rest of the fit in a bad way. With the standard fit + dryer I feel that I can usually get a fairly good fit, at least for a casual shirt.

Nope, we worked out the collar as essentially interchangeable for this MTO program. So if you order the collar larger or smaller, it will not affect the rest of the fit in any way. We had a lot of requests for this, so it's fully worked out.

Thanks!

Thank you sir! We've actually got plenty of the Stone Canvas - it was just accidentally copied over when the new pants were built. I'll put it back on the site in a day or two, just need to dig out the photos. But we've got that on hand.

Ah man, I wish! We used up all of the available cloth on that one.

No, at the moment, all of the chinos are done with belt loops. But I'll have a new 5-pocket canvas chino to show you guys in about 6 weeks. It's cut like a jean and stonewashed. We're testing the final sample as we speak.

Very different vibe on both of them.

The Duck Napoli has a soft shoulder, but is a hefty jacket overall. The lapels and chest are canvassed, the fabric is thick, and the jacket fits very sharp. The Napoli can still be a formal piece in wool, and using a casual cloth like the duck canvas gives it a very "epaulet" vibe, as most duck sportcoats are pretty workwear-ish.

The LBM jackets are very light and very soft. They fit like a dream and drape on you like a heavy shirt. There's no padding whatsoever. You can also machine wash them, which is great if you're wearing it on crazy hot days.

I don't have the exact weight, but I'm going to put it around 9 or 10oz. It's comparable to duck canvas in heft. But like the duck it has a fairly open weave, so it should breathe pretty well on hot days - at least as well as a jean will. I fell in love with this fabric when I saw it, as it gives off that seersucker look without being actual seersucker fabric.

Harris Tweed Walts and Navy Shell Double Monk MTO 

As much as I love these pants, I'm looking forward to reaching for some linen instead. 

Sharp as hell! Those navy monks are boss.

Just curious, because the size 30 fits me a little more snugly, and I'm wondering if I could compensate by going to a 32.

No, they're cut the same way. It's a good question, but I haven't seen that the side tabs impact the fit at all.

Consider getting a fabric steamer. If you hang dry the walts after a cold wash, the fabric steamer can take out all of the wrinkles with no worries about overheating or creasing. That's all that I use for my cotton trousers, I actually don't own an iron. Saves you setting up an ironing board too.

Oh absolutely, people taper them all the time. Just ask your tailor to take them in after the knee, it's really easy to do.

They are here to stay. We're actively building out a year-round MTO section of our website where you can custom order shirts, sportcoats, suits, and cordovan shoes cheers.gif

The shirt MTO program has been a runaway success, and it's great that we can service customers who didn't fit into our typical patterns. We'll layer in more fabrics over the next few weeks. We'll definitely do an item of all wide dandy stripes.

My dream workhorse dress shirt is a white Epaulet hidden placket pinpoint oxford with no chest pocket. nod[1].gif

Every once in a while I have to wear a full suit, and my cadet grey Epaulet suit always gets compliments. Something in a proper navy or charcoal is probably next.
