Although tbh, I voted for gwhitehead, Rob and you, Tricky. That carmel duck jacket w/ the suede dubmonks was sweet.

 

Congrats - looks fantastic!

 

I must have missed the original submission - which jacket and trousers were those?

SVB this might be my favorite fit I've seen of yours. Very nice.

Congrats El Argentino! Make sure to post your shoes as soon as you pick them out and get them.

 

Here are some photos from Valentine's Day last night. The restaurant my girlfriend and I went to had a 1964 themed menu.

 

Epaulet Sand and French Blue Windowpane Southwick Factory Find and Walt Grey Flannels.

 

 

 

This was the other FF jacket that I got in addition to the Loden with Burnt Orange and it's another instant favorite. I love the blue check and how it really brings out any other blue you add to your outfit. The soft shoulders and patch pockets of the Napoli are also awesome!

Here's another guy (in addition to @tricky) for whom these EP Southwicks look like bespoke. Great fit.

I, too, am interested in getting in on the Loden/ Burnt Orange jacket should it come to fruition.

The Driggs Trouser

Hey guys,

Thanks to everyone who ordered these today - we've got a nice batch shipping out. It's a little tough to properly launch stuff these days because I'm in a newborn baby no-sleeping twilight zone and NYC is a frozen wasteland, so let me break everything down.

The Fit
If the Walt is intended to be a Slim Trouser, the Driggs is intended to split the difference between the Walt and a true skinny trouser. It's not all the way Dior Homme, but it's meant to be strongly tapered and have some attitude. The measurements are different because of the different means of construction, but essentially the Driggs is the Wilshire jean in trouser form.

As such, the fit will be slimmer on the legs and in the seat than the Walt. If you fit the Wilshire, then you're most likely going to love the fit on the Driggs - especially in this washed cotton twill. I'd say that 90% of the guys who wear the Walt will be able to fit into the Driggs, and will like it if the overall shape is their style. And you should order the same size that you typically take in the Walt/Rivet.

If you take a Rudy, find the Wilshire to be too slim, or you're really filling out the Walt to the point of it fitting tightly on your thighs, then the Driggs is probably going to feel too small. But it should work great for the majority of our customers.

The inseam on the Driggs is 33" due to the enzyme wash. It's a hot wash that softens the fabric and pre-shrinks it. Like a pair of jeans, this is a touch shorter than it will ultimately be. You can assume that it will "grow" to about 33.5 as you wear it and stretch the legs a bit. So in reality it's only 0.5" shorter than spec.

Fit Photos

A MILLION thanks to oisin for modeling this fit image. The current fit photos on the site aren't all that illustrative of the Driggs' actual shape. Logan has pretty skinny legs - more so than most of our customers - so they look deceptively baggy on him. The overhead perspective also served to make his hips look bigger than they are. Outdoor fit shots are crazy these days in NYC due to the snow and slush, so Logan & Jim had to cram these pics in to a harried Sunday at the shop. They're doing a kick-ass job, but I'm going to reshoot these in LA on Tuesday.

But for the time being, have a look at oisin's shot. This is very true as to how the Driggs really fits. And he's a tall guy (6'2" or so?). The rise is a bit lower than the Walt, but it's nothing extreme, and it still works on him IMO.

Fabric & Pricing

This English Twill is a seriously boss fabric. It has a great hand and a very nice weight. For all of the Cramerton talk here, I can tell you that the British Khaki color is very similar in tone, weight, and hand to our original Cramerton trousers. It's going to age beautifully. I bought a ton of it at a great price, so this is one of our most affordable trousers to date. It's radically better than Regiment Twill, for anyone who has experience with that.

Hey Mike, since I'm a fan of the Regiment Twill Walts (I have 5 pairs), I think it would be great if you can elaborate on why this English Twill is so much superior. Thanks.

This is so good. Both of the exotic "game" leathers together!

Regiment Twill was a US fabric with a lower thread count. It was meant to be a tough, basic twill - something affordable that we could stock all of the time. It felt a bit coarse until several washings.

This Driggs Twill is UK-made, and it's softer with a higher thread count yarn. Feels very much like Cramerton actually. We'll usually judge a cotton twill on its hand and its strength. Regiment Twill had an okay hand and great durability. This has a really nice hand and great durability. The fit really works (as future fit photos will illustrate) and it's a very comfortable piece. I sold five pairs personally in the Santa Monica shop today.

Agreed. You're killing it in this Eddie! I love that it's a cool period look, but it still appears very comfortable and natural.

We could swing a digicam Napoli for $695 in any of the three colors. It would be so freaking tight in USN Navy. Especially paired with the British Khaki driggs.

What are the differences in style, quality price etc and what's the estimated delivery time?

Can't decide whether I should wait.

Sure thing! The newest Sport Trainers will be more of the same style in three colorways:

Tan Smooth & Tan Suede
Black Smooth & Black Suede
Dark Brown Smooth & Mid Brown Suede

All of these will come on the same sole.

Outside of that we have a new Tennis Shoe shape in work which will have a more minimal form. I'll have the sample here at the end of the week. Going to be a while for that though. Unfortunately, shoe development in Italy moves at a glacial pace. Provided that the sample is perfect, we'd probably be at May for the earliest delivery.

Ditto! I'm interested in the Walt MTO in this fabric...

lol! They are that bad, so it's a possibility. Unfortunately I have the height of Kobe but the ball-handling skills of Yao Ming.
