Will we see the epaulet x Vass thread soon? Feel like I have not ordered a pair of boots in a while...

Mike,

How thick would the Harris tweed SC's be? My experience with Harris tweed is that it is *thick*, like, much thicker than the UK donegal. Is it so thick that there is a need to size up?

It's really thick. About 15oz, and far and away the thickest jacket that we offer. But, you don't need to size up. When it comes to sportcoats, the thicker the fabric, the larger it tends to be. If you order your typical size, you'll most likely have room to fit a thin sweater underneath it. Most guys like that, as it can be a true outerwear piece then.

Mike,
I may be looking to purchase a Double Breasted jacket. Can you comment on the main differences between the Navy Hopsack and the Navy wool 120's? I live in South Carolina and I want something that I can wear year round. I also wanted to see about the possibility of ordering Ruby trousers in the same fabric as the coat to make it a suit. Is this possible?

Hey there!

Sure thing. I would absolutely recommend the hopsack over the wool 120s. It has a more open weave, so it breathes better than the dress wool. It also works as a standalone sportcoat, whereas some guys would only wear the 120's jacket with its matching pants. Once we introduced the hopsack as a suit separate, it started to outsell the navy suit 2 to 1. And it's great for a warmer climate.

I actually have a Navy Hopsack DB with gold buttons, and it's pretty cool. I'll see if I can dig out a photo of it tomorrow. I wore it to dinner last night in Malibu and looked like I should have pulled up in a yacht. Rather than a Honda CR-V.

And for the trousers - we can absolutely make those for you in a Rudy. I'll confirm that they have more fabric (pretty sure that they do) and we can build that into the Rudy special order item.

I stumbled upon the LES store in NY last week and had an excellent first experience. I work in the area, pretty sure I'm going to be back weekly (for better or worse!).

I purchased my first shirt (grey sunwashed chambray) and the fit is perfect, except for the sleeves which are a little long for me. Is there a tailor in the area that anyone can recommend? I browsed the NYC tailor thread and it seemed like those recommendations were mainly for high-end alterations. I don't yet have an affordable tailor for the simpler stuff.

Stanton Street Tailor does good work, be prepared to wait in lines at random times though.

For the sizing...the drop down menu says "Waist", but the measurements say "Size" with a different waist size (eg. Size 36 has a 37 waist size - so what do you put in the "Waist' drop down menu?)

 

Also, is it possible to get the measurements of sizes above 36 posted on the website for the Rudy?

It's because they are slightly vanity sized. If you're a true 36, go with 35. But it's kind of hard to know your exact size without trying them on.

 

Here is a sizing table for the Rudy fit, unless it has changed:

I really want to jump on a pair of flannels but I tried the Rudys in tweed in my size and they didn't fit me well, although the Walts in the same size in cotton is a OK fit. :/

post #23219 of 31862

My point is that the the drop down says "Waist" when it may cause some confusion and should be "Size".  The drop down for the other MTOs are "Size" and not "Waist".

Will the harris tweed be available for a slim walt order?
