Yup grey Wilshires. Thanks, glad you think the look works. I'm always wary of jeans and tie, but I felt like this was ok. It's sort of the classic blazer and grey trouser look made 5x casual. Though it might be better with grey chinos or something. I've been wearing the crap out of the grey jeans a white shirt (t-shirt, oxford untucked or not, etc) and the Doyle recently.

Any updates on the MTO trouser program?

 

Mike -  a related question ...Do I remember correctly that there was mention a while ago of a return of the oxford cloth rivets this year? Or maybe just oxford cloth trousers in one of the new cuts? The ones from a couple of seasons ago are still are my go-to choice for casual wear on really hot days and another pair would certainly get some use...

Sorry guys - still under construction and finalizing the fabric lineup. Hoping for everything this week.

Well, I won't have those exact items for this summer, but I may have something that will be similar.

We began work on a new chino which we're calling the Rivet GD (for Garment Dye). The idea is to make an extremely soft, washed, and casual version of the Rivet Chino. The construction specs are:

1) Identical top block and waist fit to the Rivet Chino

2) Flat Felled back seam and no interior seam allowance. This will mean that it has the same construction as a jean. You won't be able to let it out, but you can take it in. This will allow us to use lighter weight and finer fabrics, like the oxford cloths - without worrying about rear seam failures.

3) Stronger taper after the knee

4) No interior twill taping

Once the shape is made, the entire thing will go through a series of treatments. It will be fully garment dyed, so we can select any colors that we like. After the garment dye it will be enzyme washed to set the color and soften it further. And then given a light silicone wash for a really excellent hand. Incotex chinos are made in a similar fashion.

The result will be a lightweight and extremely soft sibling to the Rivet Chino - which will share the same fit. All of the dyeing is pricey, but by simplifying the construction and tweaking the details, we should be able to keep it at about the same price.

I bought a lot of 9oz Galey and Lord prepare-for-dye military twill to use for the first runs. But we can certainly run this in that oxford cloth as well. If you thought that the Rivet felt good in that fabric, wait until we wash the hell out of it!

I would definitely buy an oxford cloth rivet GD.

I'm probably in the minority here but I would have preferred the taper below the knee to remain the same. I've kind of gotten away from the small hem opening look. It's because the RCs fit me so perfectly now!

Canada Goose jackets are heavy as hell and extremely hot. They're the warmest jacket that I've ever worn. The only issue was that they were overkill for most days in NYC, and I'd be roasting whenever I was on the subway or walking around indoors. Forget about hanging it somewhere in a bar or restaurant - it was like trying to stash a small child.

If you're somewhere much colder than NYC, then the Snorkel Parka's usefulness will largely depend on your lifestyle. For regular commuting and metro living, it does an excellent job (outside of looking rad). It's military-spec and designed to hold up in very cold temperatures. If you spend a lot of times outdoors and need something for hiking or long activities, then you're probably better off with a thick down-filled parka.

For sizing, going TTS should absolutely give you enough room for a very thick sweater underneath. I take a 41 jacket and can still wear the 40 Snorkel over a suit without being scrunched. We're down to the last few units of the Snorkel Parka and it is officially a closed edition. Spiewak shuttered their USA production of this piece, and it will never be made again. Last of a dying breed!

 

 

Thanks Mike and everyone who responded about the snorkel parka. I just picked it up in sage in size 42! I'm a 42 or 44 in jackets usually depending on the brand (e.g. LBM arms are too slim in 42 so I have to take 44), and decided to play it safe and size up a bit so I can comfortably throw a suit on under it and even throw on a bunch of layers if I need to be outside for hours at a time.

 

Can't wait to get it even though spring is coming (though Southern Ontario might not be acting like it..).

...and it also appears I got the very last one in a 42. Sweet!

I've been thinking for a while now that, with the numerous products and fits you've added, it would be good if there were a single page on your website where you break it all down. One really needs to do a lot of sleuthing, or asking on SF, to know what the differences are between all of your product lines.

post #28257 of 31777

^ Sounds reasonable.

Also, not sure if it's possible, but I would really love it if we could periodically get a schedule of what's coming down and when. That's a selfish request - I do have some FF shirts and a Carmina boot preorder due to arrive soon. But also I'd use that data to pick a date for my possible visit to the store; and I think for a lot of guys it would be beneficial for planning out future purchases as well.

Did the random drawing ever take place for the Fall Contest?

post #28259 of 31777

So many good stuffs coming down the pipeline. I am particularly interested in the Galey & Lord trousers, the hoodie and the henley!! :D

post #28260 of 31777
This is probably a stupid question, but any chance we'll see more of the pindot chambray fabric from a couple years ago? My chambray shrank way more than I expected when I first washed it so I eventually had to sell it. It was an awesome shirt though.
