Yes, probably similar to the Southwick MTO fee (around $100-$150). We'll only stock mediums size 36-42. Their turnaround time is faster though, I think that they do it in a few weeks.

Ah, I just saw that. I emailed Southwick to see if there's any additional fabric on this. Most of the orders that we took were in the 34-38 size range, so the yield might be greater than we expected. If we can offer some more then I'll update the item and let you guys know.

When can we expect the next round of Factory Find trousers?

The factory is pretty slammed for the moment, so I'd think early October at the earliest. We'll get our first Fall trousers in about four weeks though.

Thank you sir and enjoy those Alt Wiens! They're officially my favorite Alden makeup that we've ever made.

Curious how versatile this would be with the following trousers:

Grey Flannel
Navy Tweed
Ironwood Tweed
Olive Moleskin

If anybody has any thoughts/opinions/or suggestions on what would like best I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you in advance!

I'd definitely agree that it will work with all of these fabrics. It will look great with khaki trousers and jeans too.


Factory Finds Cream/Goldenrod Wool/Cashmere Tattersall Napoli Sportcoat

I'm getting one of these for myself. I can tell you guys that this is officially the best deal out of all the FF fabrics. It's 10% cashmere and the hand on it is ridiculous. Beautiful finish. The original retail on this via MTO was in the $1100 range, so it's really a steal for $475.

Also, will the two sunwashed chambrays (grey/lavender) come back as fabric if/when the MTO shirting comes back?

Always. We'll probably get some new shirts in August. And yes, both sunwashed chambrays will be MTO basics. Things look good for that program coming back end of September.

Just got my juniper linen Rudie's. Definitely wash before heming right?

Nice! The color on those is great. As a linen pant, I'd recommend only dry cleaning them, so no worries on the hem shrinking.

Yes, I would recommend washing those. Shrinkage won't be too extreme - probably a half inch or so. It will seem to have shrunk more that that right after the wash, but wearing it will stretch the leg out a bit.

Excellent, glad that you're pleased with it!

Our lapels are pretty standard, I don't believe that they read as "skinny" at all. A little slimmer than the usual Brooks Brothers offering, but still entirely appropriate for any business setting.

Mike do I remember correctly that you may be getting more Alt Wien configurations from Alden down the road?

Can you give us a rough idea of what to expect?  AKA how much money you will take from us?

They definitely don't read skinny, nor do they read large - very nicely balanced.  In addition to the lapels, the jacket is pretty much awesome.  It looks like the only thing I'll have to mess with is the sleeve cuffs a bit.

 

As for a way of a review, I ordered the medium grey hopsack in 36S - the fit incredibly solid.  The chest and waist are pretty much perfect - no extra room but no too-tight X either.  The fit is way better than the J. Crew Ludlow 36S (and everything else) I tried  .  And the short length is perfect on me.  If short lengths were stocked instead of MTO only, I'd be in real trouble.

 

For the guys like me who can't do regular lengths, here's a rough comparison of a couple of other jackets I tried:

J. Crew Ludlow: too wide in the shoulders, a little large in the chest, length was OK.

Club Monaco Grant: good in the shoulders, a little on the short side, nice hopsack fabric (not Epaulet nice, but decent), a touch tight in the chest.  Overall, fit was good, but the functional cuffs were too long and not worth the cost of tailoring and the matching pants sucked.  Not only were they going to need serious tailoring, but the first time I put my hands in the pockets I felt like I had stuffed them into scratchy plastic.  Terrible.  I think you can tell pant quality by the pocket bags; it seems to be one of the first places the maker cheaps out on.

 

TL;DR: Epaulet Walt + Southwick MTO suit FTW!

Unfortunately I dont think it is setup that way. I would just nab it if you can swing it.

I did, they all look great...

They're so not to small...I wear them with all of my YH ties and they are on the wider side of slim...these are great deals on the FF coat.

I dried my 32's expecting an inch or two.

 

It shrank to EXACTLY where I need it. I just need to get 34's now to account for that shrinkage.

I know they're getting the hatch grain alt wien, but not restocking the old ones

So you purchased 4 jackets? Insane!

No that was my bad. He bought 2 of the FF Jackets I was looking at. I already purchased 2 and if I got the ones NewYorkIslander got that would make 4 FF Jackets for me.

BTW received the Nori Tropical, color is exquisite. I don't think Epaulet will be remaking these.

If I have some lumpy, mishapen shoulders (sports injuries growing up), are the unstructured shoulders going to be a bad idea? You can tell my shoulders are uneven in a regular jacket, but not in any way that I find problematic.
post #21956 of 37445
FF fall pants already on the horizon?! Coupled with the waistcoats...God help us all.
post #21957 of 37445
Hmmm...I really want that Cream/Goldenrod Napoli now. Decisions, decisions. I might just get that and the snuff micro houndstooth.

The pricing on the Samuelsohn, with the MTO fee for a long length, might be a bit rich for my blood at this point. I'm sure the quality is amazing, but I'm not sure I can justify over a grand for a navy blazer right now. I can get TWO factory finds Southwicks or that price! Which I am moments away from doing right now smile.gif

The trousers awarded from the recent contest! Apologies for the poor quality picture. It was a bit dark this morning frown.gif

Haha, then I wouldn't have a job to fund the addiction.


To those who did the MTO jackets....do the jackets just show up one day on your doorstep since they don't go back to Epaulet? No shipping info as well I assume?
