And let's not forget Samuelsohn! 

 

These jackets really blew me away. The fit and soft construction really take it to the next level. It's definitely more on the Italian side of tailoring, whereas Southwick is pretty English. Guys have taken the same size across the two brands, however. I think you guys will be very pleased on how these came out.

 

Samuelsohn for Epaulet Bernard Sportcoat Loro Piana Rain System Navy Hopsack - $945

 

Samuelsohn for Epaulet Bernard Sportcoat Wool/Silk Chestnut Plaid - $865

 

Samuelsohn for Epaulet Bernard Sportcoat Multi-Fleck Navy Tweed - $945

 

And, really, two of the softest jackets I've ever handled:

 

Samuelsohn for Epaulet Berard Sportcoat Grey Pure Cashmere - $1095

 

Samuelsohn for Epaulet Bernard Sportcoat Pure Cashmere Prince of Wales - $1295

And finally, the return of the Hardie!

 

Epaulet Hardie Shawl Collar Cardigan Grey- $395

 

Epaulet Hardie Shawl Collar Cardigan Klein Blue - $395

We've used the cheapo Conairs for years without issue, but this looks like a great option for someone who wants a higher end and domestically made piece. Good call!

 

I can also vouch for Jiffy - I have the J-4000:

It's a little more expensive than the J-2000 Mike linked too, but it's all metal and really solid/industrial - you could use this thing for 20 years (I've had mine for 5 or 6).

Mike/Matt:

 

What's the hand on the charcoal birdseye like?  Smooth ala Super 120s, "weavy" ala hopsack, or soft and "nappy" like flannel?

 

Any plans to bring back the flannela (or possibility of special ordering)?  I think that might be one of my favorite fabrics so far.

So much good stuff, my wish list is seriously backlogged. 

 

Today: Epaulet white OCBD, dove grey hopsack Rudy, and Carmina Fitzgerald

It's really smooth. Very soft and a bit lofty. A typical flannel, but a superfine yarn that gives it a softer hand than usual.

And man, I wish we could get more flannela. That was a one-shot deal from last year. If you like the weight of flannela, then the high-end windowpane flannel that we have now is pretty close to it. It's a nicer and softer fabric, but also that medium-light weight.

Hey Mike, 

 

You probably missed this. But the following was from a prior post. 

 

Wanted to ask you whether this issomething the tailor can take care of? I received the pants as is and was wondering if cutting out the seam will release the split waist band. 

 

Also, are the flannels usually cut baggier than the lighter fabrics such as the Walt 120s?  My four other pairs of walts in lighter fabric are all similar in size, but my flannel is a tad larger, so I had to bring it to a tailor to get it tapered. Is it better to downsize in the heavier fabric and adjust the waist? Thanks.

My apologies for missing that the first time around - just shot you a PM about it.

And for all of our garments, heavier fabrics tend to make up a bit larger than thinner ones across the board. This difference isn't typically enough for most guys to change their size, but if you're on the edge of two sizes then it might be. When it comes to tailoring a trouser in or out, we always advise customers to go with the leg fit that works the best for them. If the leg matched up to the smaller waist size works better then let the trousers out. Or vice versa.

Barrett double-breasted oatmeal Donegal tweed. Also shown, leaf duck Rivet Chinos.

This is badass. DB is definitely something we should all consider.

These are from last weekend at the Norfolk coast. This SC is great for warmer temperatures. I wear it all the time, often instead of a blazer:



I picked up this sweater on a recent trip through Manhattan:

Those black circles on the faces are fantastic! The depth of color is just incredibly rich, and the ovalness is so symetrical. I have been meaning to replace my oval blackout face for some time, and you have shown me what I must have.

I would be grateful if you can share where you got them. I sure hope they aren't much. I can't spend more than a couple hundred dollars to one. If they are a great value, I might want one for day wear and one for evening.

Hi Mike,

Is the plan to eventually get the Walt fit, structured jackets and/or MTOs going with Samuelson? Alternatively, is there any chance of Southwick doing a MTO in the Loro Piana Rain System hopsack? Maybe I'm placing too much emphasis on the rain system aspect. But, it sounds like a very cool feature for a hard working suit.

thanks!
