Those sneaker sample sales are really going to make someone's day.... or month. I'm with @tricky though, wrong size

Can you post a shot in natural light, if you don't mind? I've wanted a pair of these since they were originally offered, but I'm wondering if they'll be too close to the VBC dark mocha flannel that's been offered in a few eff rounds. Thanks!

 

Natural lighting is very variable.

 

The depth of color is much greater than the mocha flannel.

 

Indoor shade

Outdoor direct sun

Outdoor shade

I'd just like to note that the UK moleskin fabric, per its heritage, makes for fantastic outdoor pants. I just spent two weeks hiking and car camping at Zion, Bryce Canyon, Grand Canyon, and Lake Powell. This being the high desert, this basically meant dry cold. Except for Zion (where it soared to 70 F one day), days rarely got above 40 F and nights were always below freezing, usually in the 10s.

Living in the PNW I rarely get this kind of weather, and I typically do most outdoorsy stuff in the summer and fall when it's not subzero. My warmest pants, of course, are the UK moleskins, so in the bag they went. Layered over Icebreaker wool baselayers for warmth, I was plenty comfortable the entire trip. The couple of days it actually snowed, I added a pair of snowboarding pants.

(The Spiewak snorkel parka I got two years ago also saw a ton of use, mostly in camp or while stargazing.)

Call me crazy, but now I really want to MTO a pair of moleskin pants with cargo pockets now.

Those donegal rivets are great. I wore mine on Thanksgiving and got tons of complements. The unlined wool has a touch of stretch to it...which was useful that day.

@Epaulet I see the EFF Trousers is still up, are you still taking orders for it?  If so, how is the kale/khaki cross-hatch flannel?  Been looking for a green trouser since I missed out on the Blarney's on a previous EFF

@JR Magat actually we can still take orders on those today, they won't start cutting anything until Wed-Thurs. You'll LOVE the Kale-Khaki, it's a brilliant rich green tone and really soft, luxurious fabric. I have the same cloth from a few years back in a different color.

Are all the belts up to speed wrt source (e.g. dress belts)?

 

@TweedyProf the new suede belts are thicker than in the past, but I wouldn't necessarily say that they're better quality. Just different. We had a lot of guys who wanted to wear their suede belts casually, so we made the construction thicker. The calfskin dress belts are sleeker and thinner, but certainly excellent quality for the money. They're actually our best selling belts by a large margin.

Sure, I just shot some fit pics of it: 

 

 

 

The copy for these pants already hypes everyone up a lot but take if from me: if you live somewhere cold, then these will be the best trousers that you've ever owned. It's an insane fabric to use for a pant.

Chiming in on the quality of the moleskin - Rudys here in office setting. Hard to show how soft and plush the fabric is.
