    Damn those look good. I hope the cashmere pique looks that good--I was napping on the regular navy. Any pics of that cash windopane? I'm really interested to see how that turned out.

    Pardon my ignorance: so Walts are done with creases whatever the fabric, but Driggs not?

    Really liked the Wilshires I tried on in the store. The fit works great for me! Just curious about how much the denim will stretch if at all. Likewise the G&L rivets look great too, but I'm just curious about how much they'd shrink in the wash. Thanks!

    Got the Doyle last Friday and been wearing it everyday since. I love it so much I would consider getting another in a different color. Perfect spring jacket. I use it as a sweater replacement and wear the collar turned up so it doesn't look like a shirt, and leave the button and top two buttons un done. Excuse the poor quality mirror shots, just wanted to post some fit pics. [​IMG]

    Is your flannel underneath from JCrew two Christmases ago? I believe I have the same one.

    One of my favorite FF trousers. With that said, I can't wait until the next round!

    Actually, these days we specify side-to-side pressing (no crease) for all cotton trousers. All the new cotton Walts will be made this way. Most guys prefer that.



    Excellent! We've found that the denim stretches about a full inch in the waist, so you want to buy it fitted in the beginning. It should be tighter than you'd like, but not so tight that you cannot sit down comfortably. And the legs should feel generally good, as the thighs will break in a bit, but won't really stretch. Most flexing for denim happens at the waist and seat.

    G&L Rivets shouldn't shrink at all in the wash save for about a half inch in the length. Overall quality chino twills pretty much stay the same. They'll stretch out a bit with a LOT of wear, but nothing like denim. And you'll want to keep them out of a dryer to preserve the color.


    Excellent - thanks for picking it up and glad that you dig it so much! We're definitely working on a bunch of Doyle variants to keep the excitement going. And Matt's going to give you some major props for the Caran D'Ache pen

    A few pages back, I believe you mentioned a camp moc coming soon. I may be just one man, but I would be on that with a quickness.

    Also, do you plan on making a MTO load out for the wool pants as well, or is that a cotton only club? Thanks! Keep up the great work.

    Question about the EPLA tees. Those are garment dyed, right? So does it stand to reason that I could buy a white one and dye it myself to some color of my preference? Descriptions says the enzyme wash seals in the dye, so maybe that will stymie my DIY attempt.

    taking another shot at the elusive blazer/denim combo. shirt sleeves are a little long but I expect them to shrink a bit still.

    Nice SVB! Details on the shirt … EP or other? I like the scale of the gingham and the collar. Looks great!

    Any ETA or details on the next Doyle fabrics? I'd love to pick one up but already have a couple jackets in olive and navy duck.

    We're going to bring in a few special edition Doyles in the next 6 weeks or so. The ones arriving in the next week will be more of the initially launched Navy & Olive.


    Yup, they are garment dyed, but re-dyeing a white shirt shouldn't be a problem at all. The enzyme wash "sealing" just means that the dye isn't going to bleed.


    Yup, looking into a camp moc at the moment, although I think the first thing that we'll release after the sneakers is going to be a handsewn penny loafer

    Got a whole page of lightweight wools and more cottons & linens - I'm finishing up everything today

    Mike,

    has Carmina given you any updated timing on the saddle shell chukkas? I know shell is scarce so there may be no timing but just figured I would ask...

    Distressed Western Shirt

    Hey guys,

    I'm rolling out a lot of product today. Here's the first new item - the long awaited Distressed Western shirt. This piece is absolutely freaking perfect. It's a pretty heavyweight piece as well, so it's great for this transition weather.

    EPLA Western Shirt Hand-Distressed Indigo Denim: $150

    For any of you guys who already own the Western or Engineer shirt, this is the same exact denim, just distressed, and the fit is the same.
