    I am trying so hard to not buy any winter weight clothes. tough tho!

    The charcoal looks so nice...

    and i searched this thread for "charcoal flannel" and it was only good comments..

    The Moss is nice, but it looks like it's very close in color to the British Khaki. How close are they in person?

    Moss has a significantly stronger green tone than the BK. It's also Japanese fabric vs, the UK fabric, and it's quite a bit softer. It comes from the same mill as the Gunmetal and Golden Khaki.

    Anyone own the charcoal flannel and think it might be just a little thick for spring mid atlantic, mid seventy temps? more just for winter? thanks..

    Don't let the flannel thing worry you - this shirt is actually pretty lightweight. And it's ridiculously soft. Mid 70's might be a little warm, but here in NYC you could easily wear this until mid May. Not sure how hot it gets where you are.

    Hey guys,

    We're starting to receive some early Spring merchandise soon. I expect to have the following merch in store and online within the next week or so:

    Gant Rugger Spring 1
    Gant Michael Bastian (some items)
    Fred Perry Spring 1
    Monitaly (a plaid parka and a sportcoat)

    Also, we just received Alden Officer's Indy's in Cigar Shell Cordovan. They're off the chain. Tru-balance last, all metal eyelets, double leather dress sole, handsewn moc toe.

    I've got 7.5D through 12D available, and they're $665. I'll put them online this Thursday, but please feel free to drop me a PM if you want to grab a unit before they go up. We received 24 pairs.

    Here's a quick pic:

    Mike - I'm in the lookout for a nice lightweight spring jacket. Something weatherproof and with a hood that won't be super warm, as it's already hot enough down here in Houston. Going to have anything cool for me?

    You bet, we'll have three of them within a week. A Gant spring parka in two colors, and a ridiculously slamming Monitaly one.

    I've also got an unlined waxed cotton Our Legacy parka set to go up soon. And we'll also bring in technical Nau Spring jackets around the end of Feb.

    If you get any of these in but aren't ready to post them up yet, let me know. I'm ready to buy!

    Is this the Gant one you are getting?

    Just got my pair of Smiths in the mail. Definitely similar to my pair of New Standards, but just slightly less slim, which is perfect for me. I especially like the top block. The rise on the NS is a bit too low to wear with a shirt tucked in, but these are perfect. I'm looking forward to breaking them in, setting the creases, and improving the drape.

    Now the only question is whether to cuff, or not to cuff.

    Great fit. Definitely cuff, but I think you'd be best with a hem and small cuff as opposed to a double or triple cuff.

    Thanks brah!

    Yup, that's the exact jacket - we're getting it in both orange and blue. It's ass kicking. Sure, I'll post up pics and the initial fit once it arrives, should be any day now. We can definitely sell it via paypal invoice or phone order before it goes online.

    Can chime in on this. I have this shirt and love it. It is flannel but for lack of a better descriptor, I would call it "flannel-lite". Great shirt and can definitely be worn in warmer temps than you would think without actually seeing the shirt.

    Yeah, it's super soft but it's not thick. I would wear it in 70 degree weather even, provided it was worn as a single layer.

    Arrrggghhh! Was lucky and smart (rare for me) enough to nab a pair of the charcoal donegal tweed pants (deadstock I believe). Took them to a new tailor two and a half weeks ago to have them hemmed and they are still too long. Yes I know, better than too short but two and a half weeks to do a frickin' hem? WTF? Will try to find someone else after the blizzard blows through here. I am a very self-indulgent person. If I want something, I want it now damnit. Waiting what will probably end up being close to four weeks to wear a kickass pair of trousers just pisses me off [​IMG] [​IMG]

    That sucks. I know the feeling. I took a pair to my regular tailor, but the younger one I go to all the time was busy helping a customer with a MTM suit so one of his old school Italian assistants hooked me up and did them I remember and they ended up with too much of a break (old school style) so I took them back and they brought them up free of charge (I already paid for the first time).

    If I were you, I would bring them back to the same to have them bring them up more free of charge before you pay for another tailoring service for the same pair.

    I would but two and a half weeks wait time is not worth saving the $. I may go back there in a day or so and see if they will do it gratis and rush it through. If they won't expedite the alteration I will go elsewhere.

    ^ That's what I would try first. Otherwise, I can understand why you would change it up.

    Mike,

    I see where some shortsleeve madras has gone up (and some sizes sold out!). Any ETA on the long sleeve? I want to make sure I jump on and get them and also how long I have to save since I want to get some lightweight wool trousers as well!.

    Cool, thanks for posting the pic. The fit's great on you. And cuuuufffff! All the way.
    Cuffz FTW.
    Great fit. Definitely cuff, but I think you'd be best with a hem and small cuff as opposed to a double or triple cuff.
    Thanks for all the feedback, I was definitely leaning towards cuff. I like the idea of hemming, but maybe I'll wait until I give them a soak and get a little shrinkage out of the way first.
    Hey guys, We're starting to receive some early Spring merchandise soon. I expect to have the following merch in store and online within the next week or so: Fred Perry Spring 1
    Question, what spring items can we expect from FP?
