Khaki's of Carmel - Page 3

post #31 of 100
Not sure if Khaki's of Carmel uses them or not. All they said was that it was an "old school tailor who had been in the business for decades". They also said their cut and fabrics were exclusive to them. I own a pair of the cotton twill khakis and they are the best dress khakis I've come across in 30 years.

Wow, thats a serious statement. I agree they are awesome, but solid words there.

You may not realize how correct your observation "these bits of California Sunshine"is.
Camel (by the Sea) tends to be foggy and even chilly much of the year being literally on the
Pacific.

All true. But the maker could also be Martin Greenfield.

Was helped by Yoshi on my first visit to Khaki's. I came in looking for some new squares to compliment some new ties i recently purchased in B & S and from YHNT. Here is what I came up with.

 

 

Also some socks...

 

 

 

Also, since I heard such good things about their house brand chinos, and that's all i ever wear to work, I decided to have a pair made up in dark tan, was very impressed by the quality and am eagerly awaiting their arrival. If they do well in the field they could very well be my mainstay chino for the weekdays as they looked fantastic.

Nice pocket squares. I bought the same navy and white paisley made by Seaward & Stern at Khaki's. S&S is my favorite British neckwear and pocket square brand.

My wife and I were down in Carmel for the weekend two weeks ago. What a nice break from the 104 temps in the East Bay. Stopped in at Khaki's and saw Kiyoshi (The Silentist on Tumblr), Jim Ockert, and the rest of the team. I tried on a number of their Gemo suede and leather jackets as well as some of the technical fiber jackets. Very cool stuff. Living in the East Bay I have little use for a suede jacket right now but will return and pull the trigger on one of them later in the summer for fall. I'm really liking the look of suede that is almost a blazer and almost a jacket (a Blacket??smile.gif

I also have the dark tan cotton khakis. It is a great color. The fabric is a tight, quality weave yet soft. Some of the very best cotton khaki material I've run across in years. Their own label is an excellent value and you can now order them online at their website.

Also picked up a pair of Edward Green Sandringham E202 last. Love this color.

Gus, is this the Antique Chestnut or Burgundy? It seems lighter than how it looks from their website. I am very interested on the Sandringham (202 last I believe?) if I can only figure out sizing availability as I have small feet. I should probably call them if they can order it on my size. Thanks

They are the chestnut antique. This photo maybe just a bit bright and Jim looked for a more orange shade in his stock for me because they do vary from shoe to shoe. (as do many things handmade) Classic Ralph Lauren from the 80's and 90's was usually in this more orange/tan shade and that was what I was shooting for. They did tone down, as I expected they would, once I polished them with Saphir cream polish and a small amount of wax, to more of a classic British tan. But the subtle orange undertone gives them a bit of punch which is a nice change from my darker brown shoes.

This is an excellent color for spring and summer IMO when a dark brown sometimes looks out of place with a summer suit. But, in the end it all comes down to your personal preference and style or formality.

^^ It is a beautiful color indeed. And you are correct, that it really boils down to personal preference. I am leaning towards the darker Burgundy as I find it more versatile with my current wardrobe and stylistic preference..Thanks again
