post #30976 of 37449

Off topic watch question for Mike and NYC guys: any recommendations for mechanical watch repair? I have an inexpensive mechanical watch that recently developed a clanking noise inside the housing when the watch is moved back and forth (Mike, this is the Orient watch you were looking at the other day). It still tells time as well as it ever has, though, but the noise is worrisome. Any recommendations for repair?

^Maddox in the FiDi. It's right around the corner from JR Electronics.

Looking forward to the next one.

What the hell did I miss?

I need the leaf duck canvas to come back!

Mike,

I just saw what looked like a Doyle in a cream-colored denim with antique wooden buttons. Possible to release something in this type of fabric? Or even a duck canvas? Looks super sharp.

Just booked myself a place to stay in East Village. Going to cut out time for a visit  :slayer: Either on Sunday evening after arriving, or Tuesday afternoon before actually leaving the country. I'll see if I can make it to the Brooklyn store too, but Mike, y u no work on Mondays :fu:

Hey Mike... I need to take in/taper the thighs of my Walts. How competent is the Stanton Tailor Shop for this type of alteration? Thanks!

May need to Nano for child duty.

got my eggshell wilshires today and absolutely love them.  EP always comes through with the good stuff!!

the denim is relatively light weight feeling and has a great somewhat slubby texture.  need to get them hemmed a bit but that's no biggie.  reallly happy with the fit.

these are my first pair of wilshires and i sized down 1 from my rivet size.  fit is def snug in the top block but looks great.  i'm sure they will stretch an inch or 2 and be absolutely perfect.

 

only nitpick (although I really don't mind) is there were a surprising amount of loose threads on the inside (especially near the back pockets) but nothing i couldn't trim up in a few seconds.  i suppose for the price it's acceptable, at least compared to my 3sixteens which came practically flawless.

Another OT note: I'm so so happy with the RX100m2, it has served me perfectly throughout my stay here. I've just spent a day with a NEX-6; I have no complaints except that it's bulkier and the battery life could definitely be longer. I'm reading that the kit lens might be one cause of that; I basically have to turn off the LCD to get it to not die in the middle of the day.

Mike, thanks for the suggestion :cheers:

Wish I lived in the area so I could test out fits in person.

Very cool. I'd say that you'll be an XXL in the EPLA oxfords. The sweatshirt is a substantially more relaxed fit. We'll get those delivered in the next few weeks.

Thanks for picking up the lows! Looking forward to hearing what you think of them.

Very cool. I'll be in town, although might be at the BK store that day. If you're staying the night then we can catch a drink later on.

Probably navy suede and burgundy calf. Mmmm....

Cool. Here's our planned order right now for October:

Tennis Hi: Black Calf with Gum Sole
Tennis Hi: Sienna Calf (mostly brown with a touch of red) with Gum Sole

Tennis Lo: Off White Calf with Gum Sole
Tennis Lo: Slate Blue Calf with Gum Sole

I'm going to keep this delivery pretty conservative, as Nov-Jan is typically the slowest season for selling sneakers. But I'd like to pitch two things:

1) If anyone wants to preorder an extended size (smaller than 7.5US, larger than 12US), then let me know. We can do it for a $110 deposit. I'd need to confirm and take that this week. You can size yourself fairly closely on Chuck Taylors. The Tennis Shoes are a true medium width.

2) I've got a huge catalog of leathers and suedes to choose from. We can certainly do a fun group special edition project for a Feb delivery. It can be a group buy where we take a poll on colors. We can do a custom liner or something unique for it too.

Oh that's definitely in the plan. I'm not going to bring in any suedes for October, but hell yes for Feb. Suede used for sneakers is typically such crap that it's great to see proper Mastrotto suede on these. We'll run (at least) grey, snuff, chocolate, and navy suede in the Tennis Lo.

Good call! Henley's are sized like the tee's, but 1 inch to 1.5 inch longer in the body.

Well, I'd have to say, that unless you're attached to that specific watch then you might consider just replacing it. Watch repairs are typically kind of pricey, so it often makes the most sense to just buy a new Orient.

That said, this is the model that I was talking about at the First Wednesdays event:

This watch is beautiful in person. For the money, I don't think that it can be beat. Pick up a leather strap to alternate with the bracelet and you can wear it with anything.

Coool. I love that idea. Too late in the year for a light color like that, but definitely something to consider for next year.

Oh cool! I'm in Brooklyn until 6PM today if you want to head out here. Otherwise Matt's in Manhattan until the same time. East Village to LES is a quick walk.

I've got two in-bound boxes from LA. Box 1 arrives on Tuesday so that we can do our photoshoot. That will have the three new Kamigata's inside (Broken Twill Camo, Turkish Grape Indigo, Italian Cotton-Linen). We'll do the newsletter and launch on Thursday. The actual inventory arrives on Friday and we can start shipping then. Won't be long now!

BTW - is that your dog?

Stanton Tailor is great for that, but they might have a long wait time with wedding season. You can take that right to Orchard Tailor at 145 Orchard. They can also do that work and it will be cheap and fast.

Excellent, and thanks for picking that up! That eggshell denim is stunning.

Thanks for posting feedback on the loose threads. We're always trying to deliver the best product that we can, so I'll pass that along. However, there is a reason for it. Most selvedge jeans like ours - including 3sixteeen - are delivered raw. In this case, cleaning out seams is easy, and the factory mostly doesn't have to do it. Denim cuts very clean and very easily.

When you rinse wash a jean like we do with the Wilshire, the unfinished interior areas naturally fray a bit. This happens with every jean, but you don't notice it on a raw jean as that only happens after you wash it yourself. Our wash house does the final detailing and there is a person who snips the loose threads, and we'll remind them to be more detailed with it. But they'll always be a little bit - especially in areas like the inside rear pockets - as that's the nature of a washed jean.

Cool, glad that you like it!

Man, Sony is making the best cameras these days. I just upgraded to the RX100 III and it's awesome.

I'm not crazy about most of the NEX series. The full frame A7 and RX1 are spectacular. I'd recommend the RX100 models over the NEX any day of the week.

I've tried other cameras but they just pale in comparison. The Leica M and Summilux 50/1.4 can't hold a candle to the Sony A7 with a Nikon 50/1.2 manual lens. And that Sony setup is less than 1/3 the price.
