Hey guys!
 

1) The Chelsea boot pics are looking boss - glad that you guys are enjoying them! What a fantastic project that turned out to be. 

 

2) I had a fantastic meeting with Individualized shirt today. We got a bunch of new exclusive fabrics to feature and I shot an 8-minute video where Joe Blair - the head of merchandising - takes you through the best parts of the Fall 2016 line. He's a fantastic fabric buyer, and he really appreciates cloth with a passion that's heads above everyone else. I'm going to get it online tomorrow and post it here. It includes something that he bought with us in mind... a 3-ply 100s Oxford that may be the heaviest Oxford that has ever been woven. 

 

3) Did I mention that we made absolutely killer Barberis 110's suiting separates? They'll arrive in the next week. We made the Vittorio jacket, the Walt Trouser, and a new Double Breasted jacket in both Navy and Grey Vitale Barberis 110s Wool Twill. The price: $600 for the Single Breasted suit and $650 for the Double Breasted Suit. Or you can buy everything a la carte. 

 

It's going to blow you away. There's a lot of crap out there on the market right now, but trust me - this is the absolute best OTR suit for the money that anyone has. Only two colors, but what the hell, they're the two colors that everyone needs!

@tricky yup, @bry2000 is totally right - we reordered the Thorpe Varsity in Black Wool / Black Leather and Navy Wool / Cognac Leather. 
 
I got a little cute last year with my colorways. We blew through the Navy/Cognac, but then had the other colors chilling out all season. So this time I made the two colors that everyone liked and ordered more stock in each. I'm (hopefully) getting smarter as I get older!

I am curious what kind of secret menu options we have, so far I am aware of box pleats, darts, two button collars, double pockets, epaulets, and jacket sleeves. I think that's all the ones I can think of.

 

@Nik Telford haha, these are the current secret menu options: 

 

Box Pleats, Shoulder Pleats, or Plain Back

Two Button Collars (but that requires a really high collar stand, so you need a long neck)

Double pockets (can be done with any pocket style) and Shoulder Epaulets

Short Sleeves

Square bottom with a notch (for that 1950s camp shirt look)

French front or Covered Placket

Contrasting Collars and/or cuffs. This contrast can be white or can actually be another color or fabric (ex. do a blue oxford body and a white floral collar). A contrasting fabric has to be more or less the same weight though, so you can't put a linen collar on a flannel body. 

 

When I built out the online item, I didn't want to overwhelm everyone with a million options, so I kept it conservative. But any of these things are possible. 

 

And with that, may I leave you guys with a banging picture of Peter's Teak Horsehide Tennis Trainers...

Uh-oh.  My wheels are turning a little.  I'm going to be holding my white and navy floral shirts together to see what kind of combination of the two might work together... :D

^ Something cool that you might consider is doing a stripe body and a solid contrasting collar. We did this in an Epaulet x Mark McNairy shirt about a thousand years ago...

 

 

Crazy. I remember that he still worked at J.Press and he brought that fabric in a cab to our sewing factory in NYC.

@Epaulet originally I was definitely thinking stripe or pattern body and solid collar, but I'm thinking of sticking two patterns together now just for kicks.  I have to make sure it'll actually look good though. Ha.

@cyclohexane take a look through older Junya and Comme Des Garcons SHIRT stuff-  you may find some contrasting things there that you dig. 

 

I could definitely see a fun gingham shirt that's made that way. Something like a Indigo Gingham Body and Orange Gingham collar. Or do the same idea with the Bengal stripes. 

 

Also, I've got these seven linens going live this week - the colors are bonkers there. They are all the same weight, same texture, so easy to play with. You could do a dark blue body and light blue or white contrast. Do a blue & black combo.

Hell of a deal.  Would the grey option be one of/closer to the light or medium grey below (not sure if these are S110s or not)?  Also, would Rudy trousers be an option (whether with or without an MTO charge)?

I don't know, Mike. 
This colorway may not have sold well, but it is pretty awesome now that I have the stones to wear it.

@Epaulet  Will you have in-between sizes in the new suiting options? Or does the Vittorio fit solve for some of us that would prefer a 39 or 41 in standard Southwick?

These will be through the MTO program, correct? I'm looking to pick up one or two for the summer and was just about to order some...

Wow. That's $195 less than the Navy seersucker suit. Wish it was the other way around!

 

Seersucker fabric must be more expensive.

Mike, what would be the largest size in the SB VBC suit in navy? I have a pretty large chest, and am usually a 48 with most OTR. $600 for a navy VBC suit would be great.

I was picking up some items in store when the sample was in, so I got to try it on. After, Mike told me the price and I was very surprised. It's an excellent suit, and a great value.

 

@avsmusic1 I wear a 37 in Southwick (also an in between size) and the 38 seemed like a great fit.

My personal favorite was the loden/caramel combo. Ended up with the black on black though and think it works great - makes it less obvious as a "varsity" throwback, and slightly more sleek just because of the color. Then the detail emerges looking at the texture. I love mine and can't wait until F/W to get it back out of the closet.

Also dem suitz.
