I was wondering if some stock was pulled from the site as well. I have some broken links on my wish list. I admit I'm not a big spender so it isn't a huge deal, but since someone else mentioned it I thought I'd say so.

I realize I forgot to say how much I enjoyed the piece on Faulkner in the Newsroom Dispatch. One of my favorite writers!

Or perhaps it was the seersucker pattern/color.

Pardon the rambling!
I noticed the same thing! I think that he was getting at the difference between a suit and a more casual piece. Cream linen suits and seersucker suits have a distinct historical context that you can't really get away from (not that this is inherently bad, just that it automatically places it closer to the realm of costume). The field jacket, however, has no such connection. That, and I guess we could also point out that the FJ isn't "real" seersucker.

Anyone can report if there is still US 36 jacket, 30 pants, sweater in small in general for the sale?

Have you stopped carrying Cantarelli, or are you just in between shipments? I noticed that they're not listed on your Makers section any longer.

We stopped Cantarelli and focused on Eidos. Many reasons for this but primarily based on our customers preference and what they are actually buying

I like the Cantarelli stuff you guys were carrying (fabric wise), the issue for me was sizing, 48 EU was just a bit too big (and pretty short, though just acceptable) for 36 US even though it is definitely slimmer than typical EU 48

Glad I visited the sale today!  Picked up a new bag for a fraction of the cost.

I picked up two sport coats at a thrift store last week and now I've realized I can wear sport coats with a more narrow shoulder measurement if the chest is big enough and the structure is soft/natural. There's a limit, of course.  Live and learn on my part.  The Cantarelli sport coats were final sale though, so I was hesitant.

 

As a business you have to make decisions that keep you open.  I've had people give me vibes that say "I'd buy that if it cost less" but if it cost less then I wouldn't make any profit and would only cover the cost of my materials after my gallery took it's percentage of sale.  I understand.

Do you offer payment installment plans to allow the customer to spread out expenses for a pricey piece (kind of like NMWA's pre-orders where you pay half up front and half later)? An acquaintance of mine just bought a large piece from a highly regarded local artist. Knowing that this piece probably ran mid-five figures, I assumed he was rolling in dough. Then he told me that he got a three-year payment plan and has the piece while he's paying it off. (Most art payment plans are around three months, with receipt of the artwork upon final payment.) I asked the artist about it, and she told me that she gives special deals to folks in "the community" and that it works for her because she likes receiving a check every month.

Could we see some Post-Imperial shirt example look shots? 

 

I took a look at a lookbook: http://www.complex.com/style/2016/02/post-imperial-spring-summer-2016-lookbook, and all of the examples of the striped shirts are tucked-in. Is that the suggested wear?

 

Really excited to see where Post-Imperial goes in the future.

Great to catch up with Greg even for a short conversation. Good health to NMWA and co.
