Hello Gentlemen, sorry for being away for a bit. I'm just overseas at the moment picking up some new shirt fabrics for SS. We're really grateful for that review. Feels really good to meet customers expectations, especially those that are skeptical in the first place! Our suit program is not quite 4 seasons old yet, so we have a lot of growing up to do and we can only get better. Thanks everyone, all our customers, for all the incredible support.
BTW, new downtown shop is already under construction and we're working as quickly as possible to get it open ASAP. I think what we're doing there is going to be pretty impressive.
Off to buy some linen and madras today, so keep an eye out for that.
Side note: Just found out yesterday, the mill we're making our Oxford in, makes a bunch of cloth for Kamakura, including their 4 Ply/200's stuff. The textile technician who we worked with on the development, said that our 40's x 2/20's construction is superior to the Kamakura 40's x 10's because of the 2 ply weft yarn. It will break in better and retain a smoother/cleaner surface texture longer. Really excited now!
The madras were my favs of last year. I have 3 and love how they turned out (still eyeing two more colors in my size but waiting on an oxford to try too), I will say that the collars need maybe a hair more lining next go around, if they were unlined, maybe adding a self lined layer to them.
