I got super excited when I saw the Vass special order section of the newsletter, but then I read where the 15% off doesn't apply to special orders
Just to confirm, if I call in to do one of the Vass MTOs, can I still get the 15% off on a Rudy order for one of the new tweeds? Or does the discount only apply to items that are currently in stock?
Sure, we can do it on the Rudy trousers. I don't pay a surcharge for those, so it's the same as if we have it in stock. And I know that a lot of potential Vass guys also take the Rudy cut.
Absolutely, we'll have all of those online before the event.
I'm going to coordinate all of the phone orders here in Santa Monica, so anyone looking to place an MTO can call me directly on those two days. We'll have all of the info and pricing in place.
The Single Breasted model is shockingly warm for its weight. It largely comes from the Valtherm lining that sits under the wool. Like Gore-Tex, it breathes and lets moisture out, but also provides excellent insulation when paired with the quilted wool on top. I've personally worn my Veneto DB on early winter days with a substantial sweater underneath. Matt wore his through most of the NY winter last year. It's important to note also that the technical nature of this jacket means that it can also be worn in the early Fall. Wear it without a sweater and you're good around 65F or lower. So you'll have plenty of opportunities to wear it throughout the year.
The Overcoat is heavier than the SB, but that extra warmth largely comes from the zip-out liner. So that will be excellent on cold winter days, but it can also be worn without the liner on milder ones. Dylan chose that to be his NY winter jacket for this season.
Thanks! For Wyatt fans we'll have the new black and brown horsehide versions here early next week.
I have it and love it. You can wear it with a sweater or vest and scarf into deep New York December. I got it fully lined and that's great for wearing it in the chill. But if I could do it again, I'd go with the 3/8 lined version, which I'd imagine to be more comfortable in a climate-controled office. The 3/8 lined purple shetland jacket that I have for sale is perfect indoors and out.
It depends on your comfort level, but that fabric is very much a standard flannel weight, and it's a very popular F/W fabric for suits. At this point, I estimate that we've made over 50 Oxford Grey suits. This cloth is a bit more luxurious than what we use for the Walt trousers, but it's very close in weight.
My Mulberry leather jacket just arrived today, and I've got to say, this is one damn fine jacket. I have several leather coats from RRL, Belstaff, and J Crew, and this jacket is by far, my favorite. If any of you guys have been on the fence about this coat, get off of it. It's a great coat at a fantastic price. Thanks guys!!
Thank you sir! Glad to hear that you're so pleased with it. I've been wearing my Mulberry almost every night here in SoCal.
Awesome, the boots look great! Can't wait to see how they age.
They are finalized and submitted. Good stuff coming through in about 3 weeks
