Yes. We had both sampled. The model we stuck with was a better style and more flattering. We showed them to visitors at the time and the opinions were unanimous (@CHRK33, did you see both?)

At he end of the day, at the risk of repeating myself, there is not enough demand to stock multiple fabrics in all sizes for pleated Rota trousers. The proof is in the pudding. This is better left for MTO events at trunk shows.

That's more than reasonable. Pleats are available for MTO outside of trunk shows?

Also, any chance of a restock of the sand cotton/linen trousers?

Yes to both.

Cotton/linen restock in both colors back up online tomorrow

I was one who said I would try them, but my size was sold out before I got to them. At least I don't feel bad about not following through and it gave me an opportunity to try out other pieces.

No one should feel bad about any of this. It is all part of a communal discovery process. There are things that get people intrigued, and there are things that people want to own. I think that between stock products and multiple opportunities for pre-orders and MTO, we can serve all those needs/wants.

Well said.

 

In similar news, the tobacco/brown linen Rotas arrived today and WOW -- nice choice on fabric Greg. What a beautiful brown!!

 

Thanks for a great product and great service.

You guys do a fantastic job of showing us new stuff. Always appreciate the extra effort the NMWA crew puts into achieving this.

Can't decide between green or tobacco pants.

I received the SS shirt jacket today and it is incredibly nice. It immediately ranks as one of my favorite NMWA pieces.

Could not agree with this more.

 

I would have never considered a Merlot colored jacket. But now I am positive I'll get a lot of use out of it...and I'm already thinking about other colors I could incorporate into my wardrobe that I would not normally consider.

Guys... If you really do want pleats, Rota MTOs are only like 15% more
