@CanadaCal thanks! They came out so freaking hard in black on black. Why didn't I make this last year?

@FrankCowperwood glad that you dig them! They were necessary to up the nutzo quotient of our in-house sneaker line.

Even if most women tend to be used to paying less for casual shirting (that's my perception at least) it could make for a great holiday gift option. I could see getting an EP x Ind overshirt as a holiday gift for my mother and sister and have them both be very into it.

Also I appreciate comparing SVB's custom collar to the best way to get the world's best burger.

 

That's a good call. We actually have a plan for women's shirts, but it's a bit non-traditional @applky

 

In the past, we ran OTR flannels and chambrays with New England. The shirts did okay, but you face two problems: 

 

1) Women have very different bodies. With men, it's possible to make one fit that works for a range of different physiques. The typical woman's figure varies more in the upper body AND most of them want a close fit on their garments. So you constantly run into situations where the shirting simply doesn't work. 

 

2) Women have a lot more options for what tops to wear. Many guys are either wearing a woven shirt or a knit. So you can sell a guy on a great quality woven shirt because they have a need/want to wear one daily. Women change it up more, so they're less attached to a single category of garments. Many of them are not willing to invest in a really good shirt because it's not a priority. 

 

But we do have a lot of couples who come into the shop and women who are very interested in our custom shirt program. So we're creating a special shape for them. It's not going to be an actual womens shirt. I'll leave that to the Ann Taylor Loft's of the world. 

 

Instead, we're doing a heavily modified mens shirt. Narrow shoulders, slim sleeves, long body, blousy fit around the waist and hips. It's a cool style that you saw a lot from the (rest in piece) Band of Outsiders women's line. We'll do a set of samples from 0 to 10. 

 

The brilliant thing: she can customize everything. Make the body shorter or longer, more fitted or not. Sleeves can be short, 3/4, or long. And fit her in the sleeves EXACTLY. Individualized has a bunch of womens collars and she can choose from all of the fabrics that we offer for men. For women who dig the style of the shirt, it's going to be a game-changer. There's really no where for women to get custom things like this.

NO MORE STOCK-OUTS (well, mostly)

 

So, I'm happy to say that we officially changed over our inventory system to be wholly integrated between website and brick n' mortar. 

 

All of the new items that we receive are booked into this shared pool. I can't eliminate counting mistakes completely, but this should radically cut down on our online stock-out situations. 

 

We also have a new, faster credit card system. We had issues with it on Saturday night, but it seems to be working very well since then. If anyone has any problems, please shoot me a quick email or post here, as we're still in the troubleshooting phase. 

 

Next step is a big overhaul of the mobile site with larger pictures and better-integrated zoom functions.

EP Pumpkin Shetland Sweater
EPxGitman I think the name was Sunny Madras
Brooks Brothers Chinos
Rancourt Camp mocs

It was a little bit chilly out this morning so I tossed on a sweater, though I'm betting I'll be taking it off before the end of the day.

One minor complaint about the new site format - the tabbed format for the item description, sizing, construction is frustrating. It doesnt fit with the spirit of "as few clicks as possible from view to purchase", and it doesn't translate well to mobile.

 

It's much easier to scroll than it is to navigate a mouse - I for one preferred the old format.

 

Obviously the product trumps all, but just something I've noticed

This is awesome.

@Epaulet, not sure if this has been asked before but is Individualized able to do single piece collars like this one from Jiro Dreams of Sushi?

This is pretty cool! Looking forward to seeing how it comes out.

My wife still wears the purple check 3/4-sleeve flannel that I grabbed for her when you were closing the women's line. Expect some orders when this goes live.

@Epaulet

 

Will the Calgary Blucher be restocked at any point?  Kwanon just posted a pic and those kicks seemed like something I need to have, especially at that price point.  Love the entire footwear line though.

Hey Mike does your factory have the ability to put brass eyelets in the sport trainer or any other sneaker preorder?
