@mrpo0nani ahh.. they wouldn't be my first choice. That heavy jersey would do okay in a dry heat, but hot and humid will turn that into a sweaty suit of armor.

@tropics I've seen guys up to about 6'2" or so wear the tees - especially if your size is L or XL.

 

And all of these are pre-shrunk assuming that you use cold water and hang drying. If you fry it with hot water or a hot dryer then they may get a little shorter, but you'd have to work at that.

@FrankCowperwood luckily we've got a lot of loopwheels still in stock, and I'd definitely consider keeping them in the line. They're simple and a pretty regular add-on for orders during the warmer months. 

 

And thanks for all of your support with the knits - I know that you personally picked up quite a few of them. You wear them really well!

 

It was a fun project to do and I'm glad that we put out some products that you guys dug.

@venividivicibj about $250, as they'd essentially be like MTO pants from Southwick. Would be some baller shorts with full construction and the whole nine though.

@lifeinabox sort of, but the difference from one size to the next is greater on the loopwheels. 

 

I'd say the following

 

Size Small Loopwheel = Size Small Union

Size Medium Loopwheel = Size Medium Union (going to fit slim) or size Large Union (fitting a bit bigger, but still good)

Size Large Loopwheel = Size XL Union

@scrolls thanks man, glad that you liked them!

@Nik Telford you grabbed a great pair - thanks so much!

@Sudonihm you could probably wear either of them. I take a 41 jacket and wear a Large, but it's pretty fitted on me. If you like to wear tees on the tighter side, then go for a medium. The large will fit bigger on your, but probably still look very good.

@Epaulet I've been in love with the design on those since I first saw them, so I'm glad I was able to snag a pair!

I need to plug the loop wheels. The best four season shirts out there. Really comfortable and look great.

 

Please never stop selling them!

Echoing this.

Mike I saw the khaki field jacket and am wondering if the weight is lighter than the loden moleskin? I wore the shit out of my loden one and if the khaki is lighter weight its gonna get bought soon.

I just got back from Hawaii and literally only took my tennis trainers in grey and white and wore them on the beach and everything. So happy with those purchases and I also wore my loden on the plane as it usually is fucking freezing on planes

Alright here is the Individualized Order I am about to put through:

 

1) Imperial Broadcloth with Point Collar 

2) Royale White Oxford with Widespread Buttondown

3) Sicilian Lime with Band Collar

4) Navy Bengal Stripe with Artisan Collar

5) Albini Orange Multicheck with either a Buttondown or Artisan Collar (I haven't decided)

 

I'm just finishing adding the notes to update my measurements.

But duck canvas is an excellent fabric for that kind of temperature. I wore my duck canvas doyle every day on my last visit to FL.

Would you feel the same way about a lightweight waxed cotton M-65?

 

I have the Olive doyle which I wear a lot.

I don't see an Artisan collar as a choice in the drop down menu for this blue bengal stripe.

I just put in my order and Adele told me to just request it in the additional comments section.

@justinkapur the weight is a lot lighter than moleskin. Duck canvas is really breathable and it's great for warmer days. I wore my duck doyle in LA all of the time. I think that this might be just what you're looking for! 

 

Glad that you're enjoying all of the gear!

@Nik Telford 

 

This is a dope lineup. Two white basics, a killer linen, and two bold patterns. 

 

I've become a one man cheerleading squad for the Artisan collar. It's funny - last week I flat-out asked Adele what clothing does she find the most attractive on me. We've been together for over 10 years and I've never actually asked that question before. The very first item that she answered is the Navy Bengal Stripe shirt with Artisan collar. That big collar looks bold. It's not "safe," but it's still really wearable. Her second favorite item is the Thedi Horsehide MA-1 and her third is the Gable trouser. 

 

The MA-1 is a specific item, but the other two items are notable. A lot of guys who do custom orders come through with their wives and girlfriends. I can safely say that nearly every woman prefers a point collar over a buttondown collar. And most of them love trousers in dressy wools. Things like the Artisan and the Gable have a daring look, but it's not outlandish. 

 

If you guys have never asked your partners what they like on you, give it a try, it's really interesting. 

 

Although there's one caveat: if your partner is a woman, do not try this experiment in the reverse. Simply telling her what clothing you find attractive and what you don't is not going to lead ANYWHERE good. Trust me on that.

Everyone's different with appropriate clothing in the heat, so YMMV, but I really hate waxed cotton in the heat or humidity. It was originally made in England & Scotland, so it's really well suited for cool, wet climates like that. But again, that's just me. Some guys are very comfortable wearing more insulating stuff on hot days. 

 

We'll have the Artisan collar in there in a day or so, but you can absolutely order it now by using the comments field @metranger8694

And speaking of the Artisan collar, I just ordered a sample today....

 

 

Have you guys been watching Vinyl? I can't really say that it's a good show, but I love that era for both New York City and music, so I knew that I was going to watch every episode regardless. 

 

The lead actor wears this style of shirt quite a bit: large point collar, twin flap chest pockets, shoulder epaulets. It's pretty 70's looking. I'm doing a sample with Individualized in their basic indigo chambray. I know that they do Epaulets, but no one has actually ordered them in years. If it works, it may be really rad, and hopefully not look too Thrift Shop or "Hey Ladies." I'll post up pics when it comes through.

It's true, I was surprised my girlfriend liked the look of the Gable so much when I showed her the pictures on the site. Really looking forward to getting my hands on it and the shirts!

I have tried this before. The results were indeed interesting. My wife has a bizarre obsession with vests, I found out. Also, the language of men's clothing apparently escapes her entirely. She delineated between "a tuxedo" and what she called "formal wear" (a khaki cotton suit with a seersucker shirt). She had also never noticed the difference in high rise or lower rise trousers. In fact, she didn't know what rise was. Good info for guys who are afraid the Gable/Taylor will be too conspicuous.

Come to the Epaulet thread for sound advice... in all aspects of your life.

I will have to try this, re: asking the wife. During courtship, she'd always remarked that she enjoyed how I dressed. This was also pre-SF though.

I'm definitely going to stress over this more than I should.

It's seriously interesting. And of course, we're not just dressing so that our partners find us attractive. 


Women certainly don't do that. If they did, then Uggs wouldn't exist. Or Juicy Couture. 

 

For all of you single guys though - a valuable lesson was once taught to me in my early 20s. When a girl has a nice bag, cool earrings, a new hair style, or a fresh manicure, always compliment it in a quick and non-creepy way. These are important things for women that men nearly always overlook. Take notice and compliment her, and she'll absolutely remember you.
