Baron Wells just updated their site ( http://baron-wells.com/ )with dramatically lower pricing. The "reference collection" contains most of their basics and has some really high-value pieces. The Studio Oxford, for example, is only $88 and still made in New York — pretty impressive. As far as I know, this would be the only quality US-made Oxford for under $100 other than Brooks Brothers' online-only oxford.
Curious what is the feel of the new shirts. Not that I've felt the original ones that sell for 118. is the material as beefy as gitman / BoO?
I picked up two reverse tees and a blue oxford the other day. I'll give an update when I get them in.
I like the linen pants, but need a sale or a discount to make a run at the moment, but they are in my radar.

My first thoughts were these as well. I thought it was a glitch in the new site, but those prices are really damn good for made in NYC goods and from the pics it doesn't look like they sacrificed any detailing from the last few season's, in fact they even added MoP buttons to some of the button downs and even those are at $118.

I have the black waxed parka from this past FW11 and it's been great. Slim fit and has held up brilliantly through rain storms. A word of caution though, the outerwear runs very slim. I'm a small in most brands including BW shirts and had to size up to a medium and it still fits slim. The small was way tight.
Received my stuff today. I'm a normal XS / 28 waist, for reference.
The skinny trousers in 28 fit better than any pant I've found so far, right up there with size 26 APC PS. The material is perfect and they're light enough for summer. Extremely happy with these.
I also grabbed the shell parka in XXS, deciding to size down. It's a fantastic spring jacket. The XXS is great, but I would not be able to layer well with it done up. This is fine for spring summer. The material is somewhat waxy and definitely waterproof. It seems it'll grow to develop it's own sort of patina with time. The cork buttons are a great touch. Fits like a dream.
I'm really, really happy with Baron Wells. The measurements help so much and the price is totally reasonable. Before them I probably would have tried some Jcrew stuff and it would have cost more and not fit as well.
Emailed the owner and gave him my regards. Really hoping they release the skinny trousers in new colours, and keep releasing new outerwear. Definitely going to order again.
Also, the package came marked down as gift. Bonus round.
