Hemming them down to a 33" inseam would only slightly change the opening.
The Cone and Nisshinbo selvages we have available are both quite different. The Cone is rather hairy and starchy. It is stiff at first wear due to the starch but a soak will soften them up quite a bit. The Nisshinbo is an incredibly saturated indigo. Basically turns everything blue. They are both right in the same wheelhouse for weight but the Cone feels heavier, again due to the starch.
Hope this helps and if you have any other questions don't hesitate to ask!
The sweater had the exterior label to denote the wool was spun in England. The sweaters are made in Howick Scottland, and they had put the label on the sweater without telling us. We at Taylor Stitch agree - exterior labels are no good. That said, you can remove the label, or if you are not comfortable doing that, you can have a tailor take care of that for you.

I'd love to see either a more substantial patch on your denim, or see you remove the patch. I have two pairs and was really disappointed with the quality of the patch (flimsy, fell apart after ONE, even though I didn't put in dryer).
The "black" denim that fades indigo was a very cool concept but the result just looked dirty, since it only really faded in the crotch area. I was pretty disappointed with that.
Two shirts had to be repaired because the buttons broke within a couple of weeks.
Those incidents aside, I like the product overall - the price point is fair and construction is usually solid. The shop itself is also very cool, and I appreciate the constant interaction with users/customers.
I would love to see you guys venture into more leather goods!
The one thing I would like to see more of is different styles/cuts. Your house shirt is awesome. But there are only so many shirts I can buy, and the overshirt-styled shirts you make are pretty slim to function as overshirts, unless you're really skinny or wear a t-shirt. It would be great to see jackets a la rogue territory.
Agree with what someone else said about maybe adding another shirt fit, but also think your take on some sort of casual outerwear would be nice, though it's obviously late for this season. Look forward to trying your denim and will provide feedback after the purchase.
