Hey guys,

Finally had a chance to re-shoot the Driggs fit and show you how the profile really looks. Right model, right size, right camera perspective....







The fit is really great, and it's selling even better than we had hoped. It's pretty clear that this one is a keeper! We're going to stock this Navy, Olive, and British Khaki twill, but re-up's take about 8 weeks due to the enzyme washing. We've still got most sizes covered now, but if you're interested in a pair, then you probably want to get it sooner than later, as we won't be able to restock until around end March.

Outstanding look.  I will definitely be picking some of these up - looking forward to linen and wool though!

Mike--are their plans for a lighter weight version of the Veneto vest?

May also have to pick a pair up, but also definitely looking forward to the linen and wool options. Are the linen/linen blend options going to be in-stock or MTO only?

Mike- are there any plans to restock the Salinger in calf? If not, is it possible to special order?

Same goes for the Wilshire and the Rivet Chino. Even Dylan - our standard fit model - wears the Walt, Wilshire, and the Driggs nicely, but somehow the Rivet Chino doesn't work for him. Logan wears the Wilshires and the Rivets well, but Walts and Driggs look a little sloppy on him. I find that it comes down to a mixture of rises (how long your hips are, your ratio of torso to legs) and seat (how much space you need or don't need in the rear). That can often mean why two guys with identical waist and leg sizes can find that they prefer one fit over the other. We can't get it right for everyone, but we'll put a shape into production when it seems to work well for most guys.

I just received my olive Driggs and I'm happy I decided to give them a try. I could never make the Rivets work due to the lower rise and my sprinter thighs and the Walt got costly with all the alterations - I had to take in the waist (I'm a 31.5" but buy size 32 with athe 33" inch waist so there's enough room in the thigh), slim the legs and shorten the length.

The Driggs seem to work much better for me. Fabric and color is great and I washed and dried them to shrink them a little. All I need to do is take in the waist at the local tailor which is not a big risk I hope smile.gif The 33" inseam also works better for me as after washing there a little shorter and I don't have to shorten them if I don't want to.

Mike, will the Driggs MTO offer an hemmed version?

All this talk about the Driggs -- going to have to go try them. Lagsun did your inseam shrink with a normal wash, or did you have to dry them to shrink them? Also how much did they shrink -- the usual 0.5" or so for cotton?

By the way Applky, I have the Marcello you have listed for sale and gotten a fair bit of use out of it. Nice summer jacket

A sale endorsement! Much appreciated. Some spam, then: Do check out the jacket in my sig, folks. Thanks.

 

@leftofthedial Matt that sweater is amazing.

Is the dark forest flannel for the special order trousers light, heavy, medium?

Not this season sadly.

We'll probably bring in a Driggs hopsack down the road, but the vast majority will be MTO. And you'll be able to specify an inseam length for all MTO trousers

Yes sir. Caramel and Brown are scheduled to ship out next week, along with some other goodies

Great, thanks for the feedback and glad that they're working so well! And yes, you'll be able to have the Driggs hemmed as an MTO.

@applky Yes it shrunk right around 0.5". I could have had them hemmed shorter but will probably just fold them over for now. There is enough fabric to hem them longer or cuff. Usually I cuff but didn't want to see the old hem line on these. Maybe the next pair.

Agree. Wore mine every day this past week. I think I'm starting get some fading on it. Fit is really great.

Wore the olive Driggs today. Will try for a photo soon.

I've been wearing the hell out of my denim shirt...no fading yet though.
Tonight for dinner with my lovely wife. First time wearing the sports coat. Running around like a nut trying to find my mini tripod to take better pics but no idea where it is and my scotch is starting to feel lonely

post #27750 of 32747
That's one of my favorite sport coats. What trousers are those?
