    You want to know my height and weight? I also don't know if I'm a 29 or 30, but I'm 5'11" and 140 lbs.

    I guess this is what happens when you procrastinate your kopping. [​IMG]

    A hot water wash and high heat dry will typically take your rivet down 1 size in waist (lose about 1") and shorten the inseam by about 1.5"

    I've done that with all my rivets and walts ( I have 6 pairs............thus far)

    Mike is out of town I believe until they re-open...and they're closed until Friday i think...You could hot wash and dry them as earlier noted...good luck man, and I'm sure if you did try that, guys here would want to know how much it did shrink...

    Sounds good! I will just need your bank account number and PIN, a credit card number, a social security number, and your girlfriend's number to keep on file. [​IMG]

    @NYR if I don't get them by the 4th, I'll just order/return/order/return until I get the correct size. If, however, I have to resort to dryer torture, I'll be sure to share the results.

    Looking good! Dig that DTLA backdrop too.

    Oh, and on LA we're planning for the middle of September, but I haven't nailed any dates down yet. We'll hold it on a Saturday, but it's pretty open. I'll run it by the members here to try and find a date that works for as many guys as possible. You'll definitely be a crucial asset for our "Wesside Karaoke Explosion" that will be held immediately following the trunk show.


    We've got one restock of Snuff Salingers coming in about two weeks, but that will probably be it for the year.

    Hmmm, Snuff vs Shell is a tough one! The choice might hinge on your climate. If you're in a warmer spot, then suede can be a true year-round material. Here in NYC and locals of similar temperature, you'll probably get more wear ouf of the shell in the Fall/Winter.


    Fantastic - thanks so much for ordering and I'm thrilled that you're so pleased with everything!


    We tested that out on guys in the store - you should be safe with the Small in that. Sizing on knit tees vs wovens is always a little wonky, but I think that this will be fine on you. I comfortably wear a Large and Dylan wears a Medium.


    Longevity is always crucial for me. Of course lighter, finer fabrics are going to wear out faster than heavier ones, but the 7oz canvas strikes a fantastic balance of being a breathable light cloth but still being pretty rugged. Don't worry about it too much - they should provide plenty of wear and keep you cool.


    Awesome, those look great. Thanks for picking them up!


    Ah man, my apologies - I'm out of the country all week, but the guys are coming back to work on Thursday. We processed nearly all of the orders over the weekend, so you can certainly PM Matt at leftofthedial to see if we shipped out your 30's. We're typically closed on Mondays, and we closed on Tues and Wed too in order to give everyone a 4-day break.

    If we end up shipping on Thurs morning and you want regular Priority Mail then we'll of course refund that Express charge that you paid. Just let Matt know what you prefer.

    Thinking over the special order trouser fabrics and have three picked out (not however that wardrobe staple, red velvet...). I'm on the fence about the red/white/blue striped cotton. On the one hand, I'm never going to see a pair of trousers like this ever again. Unless, of course, I receive an invite to play with the Harlem Globetrotters. This is unlikely for several reasons. On the other hand, I will wear these, what, three times a year if I'm lucky and don't grow out of them? Oh, and I have other trousers with, shall we say, character already. So it's not as if I am desperate to enliven a closet full of beige.

    Just thinking out loud really, though I'd be glad to know the opinions of this thread's gentlemen on the matter.

    The goods:

    Oh, and I've got a few fit photos for you guys.

    A.D. Miles is the head writer for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and he's one of our customers and friends. He picked up a Navy 120s Epaulet suit last week and wore it on the show. As we're big fans of show, we were really excited to see it. Here's some screen caps:

    Hey Mike,

    I sent you a PM about the Carmina special order. I know you probably got lots of PMs. Just letting you know, dude!

    This is awesome! The fit looks good on him. The lighting makes it look nearly black, though -- this is for sure the Navy, not the Midnight?

    Funny you should ask. I live in L.A. right now, but there's the distinct possibility that I could be moving to the tri state area for school next year. Maybe I'll compromise by getting a pair of suede loafers instead. Decisions, decisions.

    These are awesome, and I considered getting them, but don't really wear summer slacks often. These would really rock out a navy blazer....shit man, you might even have just convinced me...


    Dude, don't pss on the suede double monks...suede loafers come around more than suede DMs...I'd pounce.

    To those asking apologies for no hopsack suit photos so far, it's just been too wet and dark where I live lately. I was hoping for a bit of sun to do it justice. I may just take one indoors.

    Blue blazer, of course. I have a white linen and silk jacket I'm envisioning with them as well. Of course I wear that all the time. You know, to get the mail and such...

    no worries. good light will definitely help cause we want to see that texture!


    so many good special order fabrics left and so many gone (was gonna also grab the mid-grey donegal). thinking about that olive windowpane tweed though. teal flannel? grey herringbone windowpane? someone help me decide. i kind of want some madras shorts too...
