Thanks. I guess my issue is the difference in my barrie in relation to jack purcell. I do 9 in Jacks but 7e in barrie. Although I recently got 8.5 for chuck iis. I'm contemplating 8 for the Calgary boots..

Oh man. Thinking of doing the same. I like that blue circle print and it would be pretty boss in a short sleeve.post #52222 of 578083/30/16 at 9:02pmQuote:
I've made the switch from L to XL. L fits but it's snug. XL may be a touch loose, but I find that easier to work with personally. Worth giving M a try. The EP cut has much more shape to it than your average shirt to start with, not too big a deal going on the larger side if you are between two.post #52223 of 578083/30/16 at 9:06pmpost #52224 of 578083/30/16 at 9:13pmQuote:Originally Posted by FrankCowperwoodQuote:

I find this to be true, in particular the second sentence. I used to be able to wear M and L, but it varied a bit by fabric. Now, I just get L and if it's a little larger, I'll do one spin through the dryer which usually brings it in a bit.post #52225 of 578083/30/16 at 9:31pmWarning: Spoiler!

The photo you posted is nearly identical to the Taylor it seems!
I love the Gable. I just ordered my third pair yesterday and my gray flannel pair has probably become my go-to trouser.
Suspenders are fantastic in that they are more comfortable than a belt and they hold your trousers in place much better. Wearing suspenders, you will never hike up your trousers or tug at the waistband, even if you are carrying lead bars in the pockets. The one "drawback" is that they require you to be wearing something to hide them under. either a sport coat, vest, or sweater. That is, assuming that visible braces aren't some cool trend in SW&D land...
I would suggest wearing them when you have the trousers tailored for two reasons:
1) It will help you judge where you want the trouser to hit your torso and ensure that you nail the proper leg length.
2) If the waist is at all loose you may be tempted to bring it in, but with suspenders you can leave and extra half inch in the waist and not have the trousers slip. This takes full advantage of having the trouser "hang" off of you rather than cinching it to your waist. I like to leave a little room in my Gables and that additional .5-.75 inch is really quite nice.
Mike has said that the Taylor will be stocked in some staple fabrics (gray hopsack, navy wool, khaki chino, etc.). Everything else, including all Gables, will be MTO.Quote:Originally Posted by FrankCowperwood
Yes! What FLW said is right. I think the Taylor matches up well with your inspiration photos. I've never worn suspenders, and have not with the Gables I have. The waist fits me just about right OTR. I do see the reasoning behind suspenders.
The Gable cut has a wider waist band and is a little bit more distinctive for that reason, assuming you wear it so that the waist is visible (as opposed to with a jacket or other piece on top). The Taylor is a standard waistband.
I don't think the pleating is quite as deep on the EP trousers as it is in the photos you posted. It's nicely done IMO.
The overall cut has good room in the hips and then a taper, though the leg opening isn't particularly narrow really. I think it's a very balanced cut.
You probably know this, but putting the waist band above the hip bones is really so comfortable. Even with a belt on with the Taylors. It made me realize how many of my trousers were clinging for dear life to my hip bones and how that gets uncomfortable over the course of the day.
I'd suggest giving the Taylor fit a try, and see how that suits you.
Speaking of, I have to get my Taylors hemmed. I wore them around a little with the cuffs rolled up, but that's not really the look. They've been riding around in the back of my car for a week...
Thank you both for the response. I will try out the Taylor in khaki twill since I quite like the color and close enough to taupe.
I tried the Slim Walt before in 32 and 33, I cannot remember why they did not fit but I imagine it was too slim in the seat for me; a case of the pocket flare. I will try the 33 this time around in the Taylor given the pleats will allow more room in the waist and seat.
Much appreciated!post #52226 of 578083/30/16 at 9:32pmQuote:Originally Posted by tizim

@tizim Glad that you like them! I can't believe that it's taken me this long to start.
That's great advice and we're absolutely going to follow it. We'll slowly roll out videos for each of the core products, and I'll work to do videos for new MTO fabrics across categories, as they're really useful to show the details.Quote:Originally Posted by kwanon
Got mine same size as Barrie. Damn shame that's the end of this line. They are a great product. Honestly not nearly as excited about the blake offerings I've seen. Bought the bluchers at full price and don't regret it. The bison isn't in my size or I would probably get them too.
@kwanon really glad that you dig them, and thanks for picking them up! It's a little bit of a bummer to discontinue the Calgary line, but it's probably time. If I had chosen more conventional leathers it may have done better, but it was fun do the the line in interesting skins.
I should have a bunch of new samples to show very soon - both blake and Goodyear Welt. We're not doing anything really rugged like these, but I think that we'll have some new styles that you might be into.Quote:

Also a sizing question; I know Mike has said in the past that linen pants will frequently make up smaller than a similarly tagged wool or cotton alternative. Is this the case for shirting as well?
I.E. - normally I purchase Large EPNewEngland shirts. Should I be sizing up to an XL in linen makeups?
No, definitely stick with your usual size in the shirts. If anything, linen tends to make up a little bit larger.Quote:
@applky haha, you'll have to thank DJ New England Shirt for the background music. It's pretty much the 1980's there every day, at least musically.

I'm probably going to get forum b**** slapped for asking Mike this, but is there any way to get a non button down point collar on the
Linen and Rarities EFF? Please?
Mikes SS shirt is not button down.
I don't need no more stinking button downs(said jokingly of course).
Would omitting the buttons be an option and look ok?
@metranger8694 haha, there's no b**** slapping here - I'm with you on the point collar love!
Thing is, we can only offer a single collar design in order to get this pricing, and the BD is far and away the most popular. So for this particular batch, that's the only option. We wouldn't be able to omit the buttons, but you can always wear the collar unbuttoned. That said, I am working out a small program with New England where in-season shirts can be custom made with collars and length alterations.Quote:Originally Posted by forsan
@Epaulet Hey Mike, quick question on the New England EFF. Last round, both of my shirts (one indigo and one pale red) came with smoke colored buttons. Will this round be all smoke or cream colored, or vary from shirt to shirt depending on the fabric?
@forsan ah, thanks for asking - all of these shirts will be done with cream buttons.post #52227 of 578083/30/16 at 9:40pmpost #52228 of 578083/30/16 at 9:50pmpost #52229 of 578083/30/16 at 10:26pmpost #52230 of 578083/31/16 at 4:50am
