Thank you sir. Purchased. Now I find myself deciding between the milk chocolate pindot and the olive. I don't have either tone..recommendations based on feel and wearability in all seasons? Both would seem pretty easy to match.

Mike, please don't forget that I am first in line if a cotton/cash piece ever comes your way again. biggrin.gif

I agree but I think removing the darts will help?

I just dropped all of my New England EP Shirts at the tailor to remove the darts.  I was getting a bad bunching up in the middle back.  Hope this helps.

Especially the stomach/waist area.

 

They seem to be cut a bit slimmer than usual there.

 

Am I right Mike?

@Irish we've sold about 2,000 Individualized shirts since last year, and overall our sizing is very consistent. Both @tricky and @metranger8694 are my dudes, but they're special cases with this: 

 

Tricky's shirt is linen (naturally a bit slimmer) and he's been going beastmode for the past few months. I'm thinking that he needs to move up to the next size. Happens when you're putting on muscle but owning slim-fit woven shirts. 

 

Metranger had a custom shape that we dialed in after a lot of back and forth. Originally we had planned to put some extra space into his shirts. 

 

Overall, the body of our Individualized shirt is pretty similar, but the sizing right at the belly button can be sensitive, depending on fabric. It can be on our OTR shirts too. Good thing is: we can easily dial that in and customize it for you. Hit me with a photo of you wearing our stock shirt and your jacket vs trouser size, and we can adjust that drop in the shirt.

@Epaulet how would you size the Match shorts?  I usually need at least 12.25" in the thighs (Size 29 in Rudy); my experience with shorts (in general) has been that they fit everywhere but the thighs, and looking at the measurements for the Match shorts I need to go to 33 to get that much room the thighs.

 

I'm wondering if I should wait until you guys are in LA so I can try on the shorts in person before I get any. :)

 

@cyclohexane

 

You should be fine. I have 26" thighs and I can wear the Match short in size 34. You would need really big legs for those shorts to be too tight. If you want to play it safe, then size up by one from your trouser size. Nothing wrong with having the shorts be a little bit big for a hot day. You've still got seam allowances and such to play with later.

You are correct.

 

They were made by New England Shirt Company.

 

They are usually a bit slimmer than Epaulet in the chest, but not this slim in the stomach area if I recall. I believe that the EFF's were stock and could not be customized. No worries.

 

My DJA Sea Island Cotton shirt was made by Individualized. The chest was fine but it too seemed a bit slimmer in the stomach than usual. Good reason to lose some of my gut.

Awesome, thanks Mike.  I'll see if there's something that jumps out to me as a pair of shorts. :)

@metranger8694 agreed - it's a bit tight there, although I imagine that it looks fine if you tuck it in. Letting it ride over the hips and pants always makes it grab you if its on the edge. But for future shirts, I think that we can build in an inch at the waist to take care of that. Still looks great overall.

Thanks Mike.

 

I'll see how it looks tucked.

 

I just got to slim down there I reckon'.

I keep telling myself I'll get back down to my "race weight".  One year ago I weighed a lot less... :D

Haha @metranger8694 haha, you and me both. 

 

I'm just hoping that Tricky will move to Los Angeles so I can learn some of his workout skillz.

You know what, we can make it. I don't have any pics but if you guys really want it, then I'll put it through. Would have the same $15 upcharge. Just order the fabric as a Taylor trouser and send me an email that you'd like a short. I'd do a 9" inseam on that for sure, as any higher will make it look really out there.

@Epaulet Will the cottons, not the cotton/linen blends, be similar to the type of fabric the stock khaki Taylors are? I'm gonna wait to see those and hopefully grab another Taylor in a nice cotton for a casual pant.

@Mghart two of them are, and then there's some other weird and cool stuff. There's two heavy cottons that you might like - actually thicker than the current Japanese Military Twill. It was made for a Japanese account that I'm not allowed to mention but the name starts with a "B" and it rhymes with "Seams." It's an awesome British twill that they specially commissioned.
