Okay guys, we put a LOT up today! Here's a recap of all the new stuff:
First up are two new shirts. These are two of the best we've ever done. The Navy Flannel is crazy soft and the Fairisle is mind-blowing in person.
Why do you do this to me Mike. Please put aside a Medium. I will be in tomorrow to pick one up.
Had to jump on the British Khaki Herringbone. Wanted to get everything else that Mike posted above but, well, almost everything. Already have the Cramerton non-cargo trousers so didn't need those
Thank you sir! Nice choice on those.

Again Mike, you continue to hit out of the park with what you bring to the table..er, closet...
Thanks! And I miss it too. You know, the problem with "Sunday Best" is that it had a lot of text and links. As such, it wasn't easy to see or reblog on Tumblr. Actually, individual fit photos have been much stronger.
I'm going to pick up a nice background to put on the floor, and then shoot actual montage images of products - not just existing shots pulled together with photoshop. A little Paul Stuart catalog style! And we'll work to make that a regular feature.

Haha, I know we're dangerous! That Fairisle is definitely the biggest seller of the season so far, holy god.

Question for you on the suit/sport coat - I'd REALLY like it in a Long. I think that the 44 plus some tailoring is right for me (43" chest, 18.25" shoulder point to point), but the 30.5 is just a little short for me. How might I go about getting a long? Same with the waistcoat, not sure how it'll fit me off-the-rack, or if I'd need a longer size.
Thanks for the great products, I LOVE the Olive Guncheck and Khaki Herringbone, but can only afford to get one of those plus a staple gray that I "need".
Thank you sir!
It's confirmed - I'll have Long measurements early next week and the patterns will be finished. I can then take custom orders with an approx 3-6 week turnaround.
I'm not sure on the waistcoat actually. I suspect that they'll still work for taller guys. I'll shoot one on a taller dude and you guys can see how the fit works.

Haha, thanks so much - we try! Every now and then there's a bit of processing time when we have to transfer goods from one store to the other, but we try to ship within 24 hours whenever possible. Adele is the master and commander of that stuff.

At the moment we've just got Walts, but I'll have about 4 new Rudy styles coming with the next delivery. Sorry about that - I wear the Rudy fit too, but we sell about 85% in Walts, so I have to be conservative with how many we make.

this will make my collection 5 walts and 4 rivets
Very nice. Thanks for your order and you're going to LOVE the grape pant. Seriously, it's even better in person.

Hey guys, all of our new Sportcoats are fully built and online. I'm in LOVE with this collection. We spared no expense in materials, and the quality really shows on these pieces. The sizing is consistent with the original jackets, and we'll be able to take Short & Long special orders upon request next week.
Our new model - the "Daltrey" features goatskin elbow patches, goatskin undercollar, and flap patch pockets on the front.
Southwick for Michael Kuhle Daltrey Sportcoat in Navy Harris Tweed: $795
Harris Tweed is hand-woven on the Scottish Isles of the Outer Hebrides. If you're not familiar with it, then click through and look at the jacket description - I wrote an obnoxious amount of copy about it. I freaking love Harris Tweed. I marched with them, SF member "thenanyu" and about 50 West Highland terriers in the NY Tartan Parade. Harris Tweed is the greatest! This is a solid jacket that can be easily worn as outerwear, and the tweed is absolutely beautiful in person. The goatskin patches really pop nicely with the navy ground too.
Those tweed coats are sick! Makes me wish I didn't live in a tropical climate
I'm getting quite excited about the fairisle shirt and brown houndstooth suit I ordered I have another Epaulet jacquard shirt, and it's the best shirting material I've ever handled. Fits perfectly into my winter wardrobe too, which is all fairisle errythang.
