@Epaulet What is the approx timeframe for the Spring MTO Walts offered in early Feb?
I had ordered on Feb 11. I remember one guy already receiving a pair. Wondering how much longer on my end?

Tough call, but I think I prefer the blue...

@edubs01 should be the usual turnaround, that's getting pretty long. We'll check with the factory today. I know that a bunch of stuff came in yesterday.

@tricky I fully support this for the Match - we can take it up to 5" if you want. 

 

On the Taylor short, a really small inseam might look kind of insane with that long rise. It could be very cool, but it could veer into either (1) 1960s housewife or (2) 1920's toddler. Hard to say!

@StanleyVanBuren SHORT SHORTS ON MEN ARE LIKE A MIDDLE FINGER TO BORING PEOPLE

 

Let it be known that I was banging on about this point long before "Chubbies" came along. I think that the Chubby owners owe a large debt to trailblazers like me. We liked them before they were cool.

@FrankCowperwood it's hard to say actually - I'm running a sample as we speak. We may want to do that longer in order the balance out the top. We can all talk about it once they come through.

Quick note, I posted some never-seen images of the Alabaster Sport Trainer in our Massdrop Group Buy thread: 

 

Orders are still open if you guys want to get in on it!

And a cross-post from our Museum Calf Group Buy Thread....

 

The extent of my video skills is a bit lacking, but I shot some quick footage of the leather while I was at the factory. But it's nice to see it laid out and really get a feeling for the color. There's one video for each available leather. 

 

I'll apologize in advance for my Royalty-Free instrumental hip-hop soundtrack...

It may be silly when you think about it, but seeing videos of fabric swatches really gives you a better perspective of what to expect over a photo. Also, that beat sounds like you can sell it to Cash Money Millionaires circa 1997.

Seriously it was a quick one. I liked how the outfit looked and threw up the tripod and used a remote. It really only took about 4 minutes total including transferring and editing. 

Thanks though.

First off, I'm going to do a stock walt in one of the two yarn dyes: 1160 (grey) or 1161 (blue). These give off the vibe of an oxford shirt when they’re made up. Which color would you guys prefer? 

Funny thing, I saw this and liked the blue better. About five minutes later I realized that I liked the blue better but would likely never buy it. The grey, meanwhile, would be a strong purchase candidate...

Match short (7” Inseam)
Walt Short (9” Inseam)
Taylor Short (7” Inseam, High rise, and Single Pleat)

I’m pretty sure that the Taylor short in this fabric would be the dandy-est thing ever made. My god. 
If the S/S budget allows for a whimsical short purchase, I am so in for these in the Taylor fit. I agree with you, Mike, no shorter than 7 for the pleated model.

I am trying to digest those flower shorts. Pretty cool, but no clue what the heck I would pair it with. Maybe I am not creative enough!
