    ^ I'm thinking of grabbing the olive tree tweed as well. I'm still holding out for some Vass group MTOs to go up so I can take advantage of the 15% discount that was offered. Will those be up anytime soon, or am I better off just ordering the pants now before they sell out?

    Beatlegeuse - If you're considering the tweeds and live in Tampa (per your info), then that makes me feel better about grabbing tweeds for SC weather. I'm definitely going to grab the sandy orange, so I'm trying to decide whether to get more than one pair of tweeds or stick to the flannels for the rest.

    Yup I'm in Tampa, and tweeds work fine for me in winter. I'm mainly in a climate controlled office most of the day while I'm wearing them, so I shouldn't have a problem wearing them in the weather down here. And, it will be cool enough in the morning going to work and in the evening leaving work.

    Same here re working inside, so I may choose the olive tree. Still not sure though.

    Hate to follow Matt, but the Southwick fairy visited me yesterday and here's one of the items I received:

    I was torn between those two as well. I just called in my order for Mocha a minute ago. Very excited, but sad I won't get to see them for 6 weeks!

    Good lord that jacket came out fantastic!
    Mixing bizness with leather. That thing fits you perfectly.
    We've got moleskins in the next delivery, but no ironwood restocks. There's a bit of fabric remaining which is mostly getting zapped for Rudy orders. If you want a special order Walt then drop us a line and we'll get on it.
    Thanks for pointing this out - you know, it never actually occurred to me to look for a US-made steamer. This looks really fantastic and definitely seems worth the extra cash: http://www.amazon.com/J-2000-Jiffy-Garment-Steamer-Plastic/dp/B0000665TD We've used the cheapo Conairs for years without issue, but this looks like a great option for someone who wants a higher end and domestically made piece. Good call!

    And let's not forget Samuelsohn!

    These jackets really blew me away. The fit and soft construction really take it to the next level. It's definitely more on the Italian side of tailoring, whereas Southwick is pretty English. Guys have taken the same size across the two brands, however. I think you guys will be very pleased on how these came out.

    And, really, two of the softest jackets I've ever handled:

    I can also vouch for Jiffy - I have the J-4000:
    http://www.amazon.com/J-4000-Jiffy-...ie=UTF8&qid=1382567913&sr=1-1&keywords=j-4000

    It's a little more expensive than the J-2000 Mike linked too, but it's all metal and really solid/industrial - you could use this thing for 20 years (I've had mine for 5 or 6).

    Mike/Matt:

    What's the hand on the charcoal birdseye like? Smooth ala Super 120s, "weavy" ala hopsack, or soft and "nappy" like flannel?

    Any plans to bring back the flannela (or possibility of special ordering)? I think that might be one of my favorite fabrics so far.

    It's really smooth. Very soft and a bit lofty. A typical flannel, but a superfine yarn that gives it a softer hand than usual.

    And man, I wish we could get more flannela. That was a one-shot deal from last year. If you like the weight of flannela, then the high-end windowpane flannel that we have now is pretty close to it. It's a nicer and softer fabric, but also that medium-light weight.

    Hey Mike,

    You probably missed this. But the following was from a prior post.

    Wanted to ask you whether this issomething the tailor can take care of? I received the pants as is and was wondering if cutting out the seam will release the split waist band.
    [​IMG]

    Also, are the flannels usually cut baggier than the lighter fabrics such as the Walt 120s? My four other pairs of walts in lighter fabric are all similar in size, but my flannel is a tad larger, so I had to bring it to a tailor to get it tapered. Is it better to downsize in the heavier fabric and adjust the waist? Thanks.
