Hm. I was just about ready to pull the trigger on the air force blue but that steamed milk video is making rethink. I have a solid mid grey trouser already, just picked up the pewter as a light grey trouser.  I don't think I'd wear the steamed milk to the office so it would be of limited use but it is cool and unique.

Mike, will samples of these fabrics be available for viewing at the store?

@el es dee ah man, they're both pretty close. Sunset Pique is a stock item now, so might be worth opting for that so you don't have the wait

@dalevy I'd say to go for Steamed Milk if you've got the basic grey pant covered - it's really special

@Duke Silver - how do you like the new videos, do you notice a difference in quality from the Iphone? The lighting at Hertling is kind of rough, but we'll aim to have a full color-balanced studio in Los Angeles. 

 

The depth-of-field definitely looks sharper. When you get close to fabrics, especially, I think the reading on the texture is better than it was on the iPhone videos. 

 

Am I wrong that it's overhead fluorescent tubes in the factory? I'm seeing a bit of green in your skin tone.

Done. And giving the gable a go as well since I won't be wearing to the office. I'm imagining outings on my (nonexistent) yacht or a day of winetasting.

@Duke Silver very cool, I noticed things are sharper too. I'm using this model: 

 

Sony FDR-AX53

 

It was tough to find the right one. I can already shoot great video with my mirrorless collection, but the focus is too slow for me to do my usual handheld dictation. This camera was a nice upgrade on the iPhone specs, but it's still pretty easy to use, and the autofocus is quick. I'm still a newbie, so hopefully I'll get better with it over time. 

 

And yeah, good eye on the lights. The Hertling factory is rough to shoot in. Overhead  fluorescent tubes, low cream-colored ceilings, and huge windows with golden diffused light. It's like a war of color temperature in there at all times.

@dalevy good call - I think that all of those fabrics (Royal Blue, Scarlet, Blood Orange, Steamed Milk) are begging for the Gable makeup. It's going to be freaking awesome. I don't know how formal your office is, but this fabric makes up pretty elegant. Paul Stuart used to sell a lot of this exact stuff.

Mike, was going through our coat closet yesterday evening and saw my Mulberry and Thorpe jackets hanging up. I longed for cooler days where I could throw them on and trot around town. Then I went back to conditioning my shoes. It hit me - should l be looking to condition my EP leather jackets via Lexol or whatever the same way we're all hypersensitive about our shoes?


Bick 4 is pretty good stuff.

For those that got the midnight melange, what kind (color/texture/etc) of sport coat would you rock with it if you went the blazer route?

I just want to highlight this one fabric, as the still photos don't do it justice: 

 

 

Steamed Milk Cotton-Linen is straight-up one of the best fabrics that I've ever seen. White pants always look rad, but they're hard to wear and even harder to keep clean. This has an egghell, ecru tone (like the late, great Wilshire jeans) that's really wearable, but still gives you that light pant "pop." Would be impossibly boss with that DB jacket that I tried on yesterday. Here's the link to check it out online. 

 

Went into the store earlier today to pick up an Individualized Shirt, saw the swatch for this fabric, and insta-bought it. Purchase this trouser.

Steamed milk cotton-linen ordered!  Can't wait to see that in person

 

In other news, the suede blouson arrived today as well; pleasant surprise since I didn't see tracking info for it!  Definitely a winner!

Individualized linen shirt, Southwick indigo linen jacket, EFF Big Bird yellow linen trousers.

Shoes are from Alden San Francisco.

Those are some saturated colors, Cyclo!

The yellow pants are really really really bright deep yellow. biggrin.gif

If you look carefully you'll see the Chelsea boots. Super super comfortable and even had a one or two people notice them, which says somethings when you are talking about brown shoes. If those sand suede ones stick around long enough in my size... smile.gif
