Look forward to it. Thanks for the response. Been trying to find something with either unpadded or soft Neapolitan shoulders.

Is double breasted one of those variants?

It's in the conversation. :D

Epaulet was previewing some oxford fabric swatches on IG. May I offer some suggestions for future colors for you to consider (keeping in mind the colors you have set to come soon), I love everything checked but I swear I would buy almost anything from the darker colors. I love your oxford fabric, it's breaking in so beautifully on my burgundy shirt at around 10 washes so far, I want to stock my wardrobe with as many of your oxfords as possible.

 

I would say a darker charcoal oxford, similar color to the darker polo would be high up on my wants. Maybe all these cold mornings in Calgary have my itching to break out the Fall colors.

 

Top 5 wish list:

Dark Charcoal (008908)

Dark Olive (008913)

Dark Burgundy (008926)

Something like the 000085

Dark Chamois (081303)

 

The dark purple on the bottom right is pretty amazing too though.

I only have 5 OCBDs, and can think of at least 3 more obvious ones that I'd add to the collection, but that is an impressive assortment above!

 

From a "easier to sell" point of view, I think a navy OCBD would be a logical addition to S&Ms inventory. I also like the vey last one of the first pic. What would you call that...grape?

 

I understand that some uni stripe OCBDs are on the way. Rick, will the cloth be available for custom?

post #5316 of 6228
I agree. All I wear are Oxfords and I'm patiently waiting for more colors. I'd be in for at least 4 or 5 of the ones that Burzan mentioned.

for the ocbs, we're playing it safe for the time being. As we have to commit to pretty significant quantity of cloth, as we are making this cloth ourselves, we need to stick with colours that are classic. The first group above are yarn dyed, those require a big quantity commitment on our part to delver them at our price point. If I were to pick up existing stock, we might be able to run a smaller quantity, but the price would be higher. Good example of this, is the new line of Thomas Mason we'll be rolling out later this Fall/Winter.

 

The second group are overdyes, which we may be able to run our stock white and they have it overdyed in seasonal colours. I have to talk to my production manager about this. But we are making progress. Baby steps.

I feel like those would be pretty hard sells but I'm not much of an ocbd person and the Epaulet look doesn't appeal much to me, so there's my bias.

Totally fair, and I would rather the pricepoint and quality be the priority and let the colors expand gradually over time. 

 

 

Side note, now that I have had some time with the higher second button I am not a fan. It looks and feels like it's in a awkward spot on me compared to the normal second button. It's a non issue if I am wearing the shirt casually as it is unbuttoned but if I tuck in the shirt I like to keep the second button done up.

I totally get it, I am a huge OCBD fan and I wear them tucked in for work or untucked casually almost daily. A lot of the colors in the more saturated tones I would keep fairly casual in my rotation and I know a lot of guys here have no need for that. I am always looking to see more casual options roll through the store so I can keep throwing money their way.

Have been checking almost daily for the slim chance the linen/cotton spread collars were available in a size 15.  Today BOTH the light blue striped and the white were both back in stock in a size 15.  PUMPED.

 

Anyone have a picture of those in the wild?

 

Also, regarding the OCBDs, like others have said, I would buy almost any color that comes out as long as the construction and sizing are the same as the last batch that came out.  Would love a navy, dark green, white/grey striped.

post #5321 of 6228
No in the wild pics but the white cotton linen is probably my favorite white shirt. Wears so well, dressed up and more casually sans tie. Wish I had a second.

Any sneak peeks on the flannel trousers you are releasing in a few weeks? I'm curious about the colors you are producing. Also, will you be running them in 30 Contemporary? That seems to be a size you are phasing out.

They will be here next week. But there are 7 colours.

 

There isn't 30 contemporary on this run. It's a really slow sell for us.
