In terms of Xshort, we can do that in the sleeves right now. We're confirming whether we can do that in the body as well. We should know early next week. They use a computerized cutting table, so the measurements are exactly halfway in between the two sizes.

Two quick questions: I think you've mentioned in the past that the in between sizes scale every measurement up or down, but I thought I'd double check about the length. I think a 40 is 1" longer than a 38", so a 39" would be .5" longer than a 38"?

Also, the fit is close to perfect on me except the shoulders. I need a bit of shoulder slope, especially for a jacket with so little padding (and I haven't tried one in the Napoli cut, which I imagine would be a bit worse). Do you think you might be able to offer that in the future as an option (say a basic 1" slope), even for an added cost?

Thanks!

 

Yes, that is correct on the length, a 39" will be right in the middle of a isze 38" and 40".

And a question from me as well: How long will the spring/summer weight fabrics remain up? I ask this with the assumption that at some point the lightweight stuff will be swapped out for fall/winter fabrics.

 

The spring/summer weight fabrics are open stock from Southwick. So either if we sell out of the fabric or if they do, that's when it will be unavailable. Most of the fabrics are limited, approximately 20 yards or under. The stock fabrics which we'll always have are: navy 120's, grey merino, navy hopsack and the duck canvas.

 

And yes, once we get into the Fall season we'll be putting up some amazing swatches!

The blue silk two tone is brand new, we've never offered it.
 
And if you guys have any questions about the MTO jackets or shirts, I'm your woman. Shoot me a PM or email me.

Are those single cuts available for purchase? The link only shows a pic. I'd love another shot at the gauzy tartan.

Looks like they're @ Special Order shirting.

Apologies, all fixed.

post #19822 of 32758
Awesome, thanks Adele!.

That and the green cast denim were shirts I instantly regretted missing so this worked perfect.

Navy Stewart tartan purchased. Thanks Adele.

That may be a good choice. But now I've gotten myself a little unsettled in my preference. I am determined to have the grape pastel SC. But I am starting to think that that fabric might look better in the 3/8 lined, regular construction (so: the light shoulder padding). That little bit of structure gives some of my other SCs a nice, clean look, a bit less casual than the unstructured option. For a finer fabric that might be a good thing. Then again, I plan to wear it casually. I think the Scottish silk herringbone tweed wants a little structure. But the duck canvas should be unstructured. But perhaps others disagree. Must decide.

Agreed here.

Been playing around w/ the MTO Southwick jackets this morning. Very cool, guys. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
post #19827 of 32758

Guys, would you give me some advice? It's rather not entirely on Epaulet-related topic but I hope no one will be too mad at me peepwall[1].gif. At Polish eBay equivalent I've found an L.B.M. 1911 autumn (?) jacket: http://allegro.pl/show_item.php?item=3142718282 Presumably an older style, described as new with tags, couldn't find any photos or information on it anywhere. Is it worth interest?

I really like the scans of the fabric on the card that denote the weight and the origin of the fabric. I was going to make a suggestion but you beat me to it - photographing the fabrics in natural light and/or at an angle. Especially in the latest Rivet Factory Find mailing, you get a REALLY good sense of the depth of the colors. Thanks for photographing the MTO fabrics at an angle. Awesome!

Thank you! I'm all about natural lighting and angled shots. We'll keep that spirit alive.

YES! Actually we totally neglected to build that in. We'll hook that up next week. We actually had two guys come in to order that grey jacket today.

I'd definitely encourage doing the duck canvas in the Unconstructed Napoli fit. It lends itself to that nicely and the thicker fabric gives a great shoulder line.

The Grape Pastel Scottish check is hands-down the most boss of all our Southwick fabric options for the season. Everyone here went a little bonkers when that swatch arrived. It has a great hand and will make up beautifully.

If I was doing it, I'd probably choose the regular constructed shoulder and 3/8 lining. The "natural" constructed shoulder is still pretty soft and unobtrusive, but it will allow you to dress it up more if the need arises. Open patch pockets have been really popular lately, but most guys doing MTO have opted to do a welt pocket on the breast rather than a third open patch. Breast welts hold pocket squares better smile.gif

Thank you! And please feel free to call or email if you ever have any specific questions on the fabrics - we're all very familiar with all of them.

Grabbed that sky blue exploded check. Thanks to Adele for the outstanding customer service as usual.
