    I've been looking at that teal flannel myself. Seems like it would be an unusual, but very wearable color.

    You're right, it does look dark. But it's definitely the Navy - they sent a messenger to pick it up the day of.


    Haha, so you've got both coasts covered. Well, go with your gut. Suede DM's are going to look incredible right now. Navy Shell looks great in the beginning and gets radically better with age. Suede is cooler in warm weather, shell is longer-lasting. Either will be fantastic though.


    Hmm, well, I can tell you that my eyes popped out of my head when I saw that swatch. I've never seen anything like it in a fabric book, so I knew that we had to offer it up.

    It's definitely going to be a bold pant. Very wearable with a navy blazer or a simple blue shirt. Suede shoes or sneakers. I could easily see it with leather sandals for dudes who like those. It's definitely summer-ish and a real statement pant. But wear it correct, and you will be absolutely knocked out with compliments, I'm pretty sure of that. It takes some chutzpah to pull them off.


    Here's my take on it:
    Olive Windowpane Tweed: another one of the best cloths that we've ever run. Despite the appearance, it's not crazy thick, so this is a great material for a SoCal winter. Easy color to match with a range of navy's and brown's

    Teal Flannel: around the same weight, also good for a mild winter. Awesome color that's really unique. Not as versatile as Olive Windowpane, but a lot of our customers really enjoy wearing bold-colored flannels in off-kilter tones.

    Grey H-Bone Windopane: This is really thick. Not quite as much as Harris Tweed, but not far off. You'll need an actual cold day to wear them. But when that cold day comes, look the hell out! These are going to be dope. And the mostly grey coloring makes them very easy to match.

    Oh, also, we're seriously enjoying this Mallorca trip. Our hotel here has an infinity pool...

    [​IMG]

    I swam in it for about 3 minutes, looked through a German magazine on watches and shoes, and then passed out on a chaise lounge for two hours. It's been that kind of trip so far.

    Going to the Carmina factory tomorrow! I'll come back with a freaking ton of photos, and hopefully a video too.

    Finally picked up my size 29 Rivets from customs!
    Before the first wash they fit almost perfectly.
    Love the cut around the thight, knee and the foot width, they are only ever so slightly tight on the waist but I think this will be fine with a bit of wear as well.

    Sounds like an awesome vaca Mike, I'm sure you're enjoying yourself!

    I had been debating which special order trousers I was going to buy for the past 5 days, secretly hoping more would sell out so my decision would be easier. That didn't happen so I just bought 4 pairs - blue herringbone linen, wheat linen, olive windowpane tweed, and grey herringbone windowpane. I feel like I covered all my light/heavy bases in a nice assortment of colors :)

    and here's a pic today of some Alden snuff suede chukkas with 10oz French Blues. I didn't get the shoes from Epaulet because I needed an odd size, but they do sell the same style and I can say that they are awesome...a perfect lightweight summer boot.

    thanks. decided to grab the olive windowpane to add to my wheat linen. i'm still wanting/needing versatile and more conservative pieces. That it's not too thick put me over the top.

    mallorca sounds awesome. spain is high on my list for my next vacation.

    I've been saying that for 5 years now...I've finally come to accept that despite what GroupThink dictates, I don't very much like "conservative".

    As for Mallorca, based on the FB pics, it may have to be a vacation spot from my month long excursion I'm planning to Naples in the next few years. Simply GORGEOUS. And Carmina is there...

    Don't know NYR, it is part of the Aragonese oppressor's empire. Can you go there?

    I myself just put in an order for a few pairs of the special order Walts.

    Wore the mint Rivet Chinos and windowpane linen Walts over the weekend. No photos from this round. Apologies. Will put them on again and snap some. They both performed admirably in heat of Charleston, SC. Which is pretty much exactly the same heat as everyone else across the U.S. is experiencing these days.

    yah, but you got the tats to back it up. being 6'5" with red hair i often feel loud enough as it is. i'm still finding my way sartorially. I don't quite have a real personal sense of style, but i'm sure i'll get there.

    Nice man, how did you like Charleston? It's definitely been hot as hell here. I don't even want to walk outside to walk my dog because I start sweating and he starts panting instantly.

    I just double checked the special order page again and it looks like more fabrics are gone, including the 2 linen fabrics I just bought earlier today. Glad I didn't hesitate any longer before picking them up! I really like the fact that these will come with unfinished hems too - now I'll finally get to put some cuffs on these bad boys. I never had enough material left to let out on the pairs that came with finished 34" inseams.

    Family came over to Napoli with them...so I'm cool with the Spaniards. :). Besides, the Bourbons gave us the most of any of the foreign occupants.



    I hear that. And totally jealous that you're 6'5"...

    Had a great time. Didn't mind the heat since the program was pool/boating/eat. Stayed remarkably cool the whole time. Epaulet linen helped, as did the mint chambray and red/white/blue madras shirts. Really should have taken some photos...:embar:

    ^ that's great. I've been thinking about getting some white JPs just because they look so good with the french blue rivet chinos.
