post #53596 of 57691

Sneaking this aside back into the thread before it's completely lost.  Also, it's somewhat on topic as the Leica SL definitely looks like something that'd fit in the style of an EPNY-wearing user.

Medium format! That is epic. The SL looks much like the S, don't you think? Down to the placement of buttons and EVF and the like. I'm super happy with the SL system and I've traded in my old Canon 5DMk3 + 24-70 + 70-200 set.  The SL and its native lenses are more than sufficient for my basic "DSLR needs" (fast moving action where I'm stuck 15-20 feet away and I need a tele lens, etc).

 

But my daily carry is a digital rangefinder (M-P typ 240) and usually the Noct.  Tricky to focus as you noted, but the results are so phenomenal when you nail the shot.

 

@no frills

 

The SL does look and handle similarly to the latest S Typ 007, but the older S cameras feel very different in the hand.  Compared to my older S camera, I think we're talking the difference between a modern car you'd find new on the lot today, and a tractor. :rotflmao:

 

The S2 and S/S-E Typ 006 cameras are much thicker throughout and feel more like the mutant lovechild of an old Leica R SLR body, a Canon 5D, a Nikon D2H (or F6), and the old FireWire 400 interface Phase P+ digital backs (look at the four button interface on the back and their old Capture One partnership in the M8 days).

@Epaulet put me on the list for an ostrich Chelsea boot.

Samples look great! Think a suede PTB would be great in that GYW last

Gents,

I've never had Fresco (sounds like a refreshing soft drink). Will the midnight and or charcoal frescos satisfy me as day in day out work suits? From the pictures, they really don't look very distinct and that's fine with me.

I might go in for a few stingray models if I can get a good fit. Consider me interested!

Something like that in a textured Mocha or Camel Wool...

 

 

And I would second the suggestions of snuff and espresso suede. Maybe polo as well if the red tones in it are subtle enough?

When are those suede hats dropping? Want so bad.

@Mike. Does Southwick make the Taylor pant as well?

Can anyone recommend a good/nice garment rack for hanging clothes? Need one for my office for weekly clothes.

I would also be interested in a recommendation on this. I need something to store off season stuff on though- something w/ a large garment bag that will live in the attic

Most likely would be in for the sand suede Jodphur, especially with the comparisons of quality and style of Carmina and SLP.

@Todd V

 

"Fresco" and "Hopsack" are pretty interchangeable - they're both plain-weave wools with good airflow. I'll call lighter weight variants a Fresco, but the difference is pretty slight. Both of these would be excellent work suits - they could absolutely be worn in any formal setting.

@Nik Telford good call - would be rad to try one of the derby's in Stingray.

@pfurey I'm hoping to ship them around the end of the month - along with the new suits and some more footwear.

@badsha Hertling makes the Gable and the Taylor, so they're unfortunately not available through Southwick

@cyclohexane agreed, the SL is an absolutely beautiful looking camera. I'm pretty invested with Sony these days, but I definitely like them! I use the Leica Q almost daily though, and it's my go-to camera for any family events.

Thanks, Mike,

Is the Midnight obviously navy or is it really close to black?

In for blanket blazer, brown ostrich Chelseas/Jodphur, and stingray PTB...
