colby backous sample sale - Page 6

post #76 of 192
I hope you get some sorta website up soon - it's kinda confusing going over this thread to figure out what fabrics are available and how it all works.

I'd like a couple of short sleeve button down super-slim fit shirts (a la Jump the Gun but in Colby quality), could you do these with a straight bottom and no tail?

Hey everyone. I finally have the swim trunks ready. These trunks are 100% nylon with a soft stretch mesh lining and elastic, drawstring waist. There is a d-ring key hook detail at the waist as well. They are available in sizes S/30, M/32, L/34. They are machine wash in cold water and hang to dry. If you are interested they sell for $49 with free shipping in the U.S. and Canada. International orders please add $5. I made a very limited number of these and I will not be able to make any more this season. Email me at cbackous@live.com or PM if you have any questions. Thanks, Colby.

I wanted to give you guys an update on the fabrics. They wiil be in my hands by wednesday so I can start taking orders on monday. The colors in the chambray are red, olive drab, and ebony. I did have to adjust my order because the natural chambray is on back order so I ordered a sand colored gingham in it's place for now. When it becomes available I will reorder it. The other gingham is in pepper which is a nice worn out version of the basic black and white. You can choose from my regular fit (straight up and down fit with no taper), my slim fit (which is a fitted look with back darts and a slightly tapered waist), or my workshirt (which is the regular fit with worker wear inspired pockets and details). All shirts will sell for $59. I have had a few requests for fitted short sleeved shirts with a plain hem. If you are interested in one of these they will sell for $49. As always you can let me know, via email or styleforum, what special custom requests you may have for your shirt order. All I ask is that you allow a little more time for custom orders. Her is a list of my sizing;
XS
pit-pit=18
shoulder-shoulder/front=15.75
back length=27.25
shoulder-cuff=24.75
collar=14
S
pit-pit=18.75
shoulder-shoulder/front=16.5
back length=28.25
shoulder-cuff=25.25
collar=14.5
M
pit-pit=19.75
shoulder-shoulder/front=17
back length=29
shoulder-cuff=26
collar=15
L
pit-pit=20.5
shoulder-shoulder=17.5
back length=29.75
shoulder-cuff=26
collar=15.5
I recommend ordering the shirt closest to your size based on the shoulder measurement and we can tweak the other measurements. If the shoulder does not fit right the shirt will not be comfortble in my opinion. If you need help with sizing concerns, or special design requests, feel free to contact me at cbackous@live.com or PM me here on style forum. Here are some swatch pics of the new fabrics.

I have a sample workshirt available in the clay red distressed twill. I have not recieved my full order of fabrics yet but I did have enough to make a sample. This will be the design I use for anyone ordering the workshirts but as always you can customize your details and measurements. The chambrays and ginghams, pictured above in an earlier post, will be arriving on wednesday. This shirt is a size M. The measurements are as follows;
pit-pit=19.75
shoulder-shoulder=17
back length=29
shoulder-cuff=25.75
collar=15
I will be selling the workshirts for $59 but this sample will sell for $49. Let me know if you are interested in purchasing this sample. I will have some more one of a kinds and sample items coming very soon. My email is cbackous@live.com or PM here on style forum. Thanks, Colby.

Hey Tyler. Thank you so much for posting some pics! This is an example of how you guys can customize the shirts that I make. Tyler requested dark topstitching and dark buttons in addition to his custom measurements. Don't be afraid to ask because most of the time I can definetly do it. So let me know what I can do for you. Thanks, Colby.

Hey guys. The new fabrics have arrived so I will get some samples ready along with all the pre-orders. My supplier sent me gold chambray instead of olive drab so I have emailed everyone who pre-ordered to let them know. If I missed you let me know if the gold will work for you. I really like this color so I decided to keep it rather than send it back. I will try to reorder it but it generally takes one month to recieve it. Here is a swatch of the gold.

I promised some pics of my custom chambray, which is kind of the cousin of socialdtk's shirt.
Colby offers some awesome clothing and only provided friendly and prompt customer service.


clean construction


The same thick MOP buttons as MJK's old premium shirts


A pleasant surprise feature, a partial lining in the front with inside pockets

I do have about 15 pieces that I will be posting this weekend. I still have to get them photographed. There will be a little bit of everything. I have a few jackets, some short sleeved shirts, short sleeved button down hoodies and a variety of long sleeved shirts in the slim fit as well as a few work shirts.
