Why can't you make a Rudy trouser? This is purely out of curiosity as to the inner workings of the industry; I'm a devout Walt/Gable guy.

 

Oh man @FLW, I feel like you could do some damage with that DB jacket! I'm really thrilled with how that one came out. 

 

The issue is just production minimums. Back in the day we used to stock the Rudy trouser and it was an awful seller at stock. We'd get a desirable fabric and blow through sizes on the Walt shape while the Rudy just sat around. For our customers, the Walt is just overwhelmingly the most popular fit. 

 

In order to hit these prices in Portugal, I have to make about 200 pairs of pants a shot, per pattern. That's fine for the Walt, but would be impossible with the Rudy. 

 

I like the Taylor as an alternative. It's a shape that a lot of guys like and it's becoming something that we're increasingly known for. It works well for guys with big legs who need the Rudy fit, but it also works great for guys with slimmer legs who take the Walt or Driggs. I can only really run two shapes at once, and I think those two make the most sense.

@Epaulet I love the Taylor/Gable shapes. They're so incredibly unique and well designed without having to go through the trial and error of creating something like that through a MTM service like Luxire. That and the sheer multiplicity of options you guys offer for shirts and everything else under the sun make it really enjoyable to buy from you guys. I like that I can buy something like a plain white dress shirt in one order and then get something more wacky like the laguna with epaulets and flap pockets. Being able to buy formal plain stuff in interesting shapes as well as more wacky patterns and prints makes it really great buying from you guys. Plus being able to talk through purchases with you guys to see if I'm completely crazy helps too. 

 

Speaking of crazy purchases how long are you guys going to have the Sand and Stone Linen up for? I really want to put in an order for a pair of Cream and Navy Windowpane in a Gable soon.

In terms of the trousers, I just sent the patternwork for the Taylor to Portugal. I think that pant makes sense to run alongside the Walt porto. It's different enough and it works for guys with both slim and large legs. We won't be able to make the Rudy there. 

In terms of timing, it's not going to be fast. Once this batch of suits is sold down, we'll plan to do a restock in early October - and probably bring in an oxford grey flannel model then too. Hopefully we can offer Taylors at this point, but doing patternwork on things like this is often a slow process. 

Mike............what is the inseam on the Porto trousers? Or are they unfinished?

" The inseam is finished at 34", which approximately 2 inches of fabric that can be let out. "

Just got my second EFF jacket - Firenze guncheck. I don't want to overuse the word bonkers but that really is the best way to explain this fabric. I had been looking for this type of guncheck for a while now in a jacket shape that actually fits me, so kudos to EP for allowing enough customizations to make this happen, and at a killer value!

Here are some pics, this just happened to be what I was wearing that day when I got home and saw the jacket had been delivered, but I think it works reasonably well together. Bad lighting, but the pants are a chocolate brown linen, with a light blue linen shirt and navy linen tie from YHNT. Shoes are Alden Whiskey PTBs.

I think I may stay in bed all day rather than getting dressed. I can't top that look so I'm just not going to try. Awesome choice.

Of course smile.gif Good eye too!

Just picked up the LBM in the sale section...Definitely did not need that with other finance pressures but just couldn't resist and unstructured navy.

Hope my Alden orders don't roll in anytime soon or I'm really screwed.

@Nik Telford you've made some seriously awesome shirts so far, it's really fun submitting your orders and seeing how everything turns out!

 

There's no set time limit on the Sand and Stone stuff, we'll have it at that price for as long as they have stock. I'll probably take it offline around the end of July as Fall goods start rolling in, but you can always email us if you want a pair down the road

@Beatlegeuse that fabric is true to your definition...bonkers!

@tricky that combo is perfection. I can't wait to start wearing my navy seersucker once it's back from getting the sleeves shortened!

I see the Yanks dealing Miller before Chapman. Miller's contract goes through 2018 and there's no salary steps, so the receiving team will get more out of him for longer, and I think he's a better pitcher anyway. There's plenty of reason to be leery of guys throwing nearly exclusively ultra hot heaters: high risk of injury, and at some point people will figure out how to hit those fast ones. The Yankees are looking to empty someone's farm system because they don't really have much of one, and the key to that is Miller. And really, is there any pitcher who seems more like a Yankee than the guy with the fastest fastball ever? :sly:

 

(For the record I am a fan of neither team.)

 

What I'm saying is that Andrew Miller should try pitching in a new EP Porto suit.
