^ Rudy orders usually consist of any fabrics that are already available in the Walt fit, provided they have enough fabric leftover. Mike just said most of the newer stuff should be available in the Rudy. So in the fall, you basically have to wait and see what they roll out with for Walts, and then hope there's still some stock left to cut some Rudys. And as always, their fabric selection will fit each season perfectly.
And I'm ridiculously pumped for the return of the Smith jean. Quick question, would you recommend getting the same size in that as your normal Rivet size, or size down to account for stretch?
And for this Fall, I'm going to try and get our first Walt delivery on the early side (around late August), so that we can turn around the Rudy orders quickly and deliver them in September. They'll surely be another Factory Finds round between now and then too, where Rudy's will be available to order.
We're going to test the jeans extensively for fit recommendations. I combed through a few different types of Cone Selvedge and found one that doesn't shrink after a wash. It barely stretched in the waist after two days as well. It's tough to say what the long-term sizing will be, but that minimal variance is a great sign. I spec'd the selvedge pieces to be a touch smaller in the waist to have some shrinkage allowance built in. My goal is for customers to order the same size in selvedge as they do in regular rivets and end up with pretty much the same ultimate fit, but we'll test a pair for a full week of wear and several washes when they arrive, so we'll be able to give you a very accurate idea.
Haha, that's how we do! The first round is coming in gunmetal and caramel. They're going to be boss!
Yes, I imagine so. Anything that we still have inventory on will pop up again.
I've got it on order for the Fall, but no real way to estimate when it comes in. Whenever it does, we'll be sure to post it here first.
Considering there are no XS left on the site, i doubt they would have any in store.
Tbh, I'm not a fan of them discontinuing XS and sz 28s since I'm on the smaller side but i understand why they do it. But if they can just have like 2 units of XS or 28s with each order I'm sure those will sell
My apologies guys, all size 28's and XS's are by special order only. For the shirts, you can match up the measurements to a shirt that you already own to get a close idea of how it fits. We can also do sportcoats down to size 34, and lengths down to Xtra Short.
