Buy it today. It will get shipped on Tuesday. It will get to LA by Friday wink.gif

Thanks a lot. I'm 6'1 and fluctuate b/w 165 - 175. Walts are hit and miss for me so Rudy might be perfect.

I've posted a lot of pics in the past, but I'll try and get some newer ones up soon.

^ Sounds like it. Although if the Walts can kind of work, as it sounds, you can get the thighs let out. Sometimes short run fabrics don't make it to Rudys, although that seems less and less common in recent seasons.

I'm a 6'1 and around 200lbs doing some powerlifting, so my thighs are pretty big but the Walts in 36 works with some tailoring but I'm most likely sticking to Rudys in the future.

Still interested in a hatch grain bal, Rain or Simpson, with single leather and black edge trim. But I'd give a PTB a look though. Double leather sounds interesting.

Mike,

 

How about a Loden suede chukka boot on york or crepe sole..

Starting with this season, we do have to charge that up-fee for any special orders outside of our stock pieces, as that covers the individual shipping cost and the single-unit upcharge that the factory accesses. I know that a lot of guys end up paying $12 or so for their tailor to do the hem, so hopefully it ends up being mostly a wash for many customers. We'll look to expand into more fabrics and more customization options as well as we do more pattern work.

Thanks for the answer on this, $170 sounds better than $180, but since I have to size up on Rivets and get the waist taken in I'm now looking at almost $200 for new pairs now. There's still some staples I'd like to get, like the chocolate, moss, and desert, but I'll probably have to spread that out over a few months, I'm sure I'll get them all throughout the F/W season though. I'll have to look at some of the other MTO options since I'll have to order these through the new program, might as well customize them!

Any chance of Winter White Flannel Walts this Fall Mike? Those would be killer.

Some vaca shots from a weekend in Cape May:



Pretty cool comparison of the way the Navy Label fits compared to the house label as well.

Beard is looking killer Rob

Now that is how you rock summer casual.
post #22782 of 36429

Rob I like how you've been a professional vacationer these past few months. An inspiration to us all!

Beastly beard, Rob.

Also so sad to see your camel blazer up for sale. Amazing piece.

Which do you prefer between the House and Navy Label?

Yea, just grew out of it, and I'd rather put the $150 I'd have to pay to alter it to fit, to more good EP stuff!

As far as the shirts, I like the house cut during the summer when I'm thinner, and the Navy label for winter when I put on a few pounds...its basically just a smidge bigger in the chest and belly.

About hem a pair of Regimental Twill, how much do they shrink? I need to know before I hem them.
