I feel like we are talking about different things here - or at least I hope.

I think Greg is talking about Camoshita scaling back on the promotional materials - not scaling back the brand itself and its offerings.

:( yeah I’m still hoping a day comes when I can get a casual summer suit from camoshita. Tonal seersucker, tobacco linen, or that crepe fabric from a coupe of seasons ago.

edit. Also those terry cloth polo (tough choice if doppiaa is also making them)

He definitely scaled back on the collections too, not just marketing. FW21 had one bal coat for example, no stadium coat, no robe coat. Couple years ago, his outerwear offering would have 6 or 7 options. Same with most categories. UA just doesn't want to support this brand as much as we'd want, they have few retailers and none of scale. The budget allocated to designing and sampling collections is clearly smaller.

That’s really unfortunate. I’ve loved everything I’ve gotten from him and it fits that perfect niche of laid back but not too casual

This breaks my heart. Camoshita is probably my favorite brand you carry.

Man that's crushing news. Camoshita is one of my favorite brands, and I love seeing what outerwear they've got in the pipeline each year.

Wow, that is truly awful news. Camoshita is consistently one of my favorite brands at the store. Just fantastic stuff.

Is your buy from Camoshita this year truncated?

Well, I am glad, at least, that I have a ton of Camoshita in my closet.

*Goes searching for all of the bal coats and easy pants in size 48 that he can find*

So sad to hear that it’s not doing well. Camoshita is actually the brand that brought me to NMWA for the first time.

Must have been a bug - I think I've fixed it and it looks great on my computer, but if not it might be a caching issue so please try an incognito window.

We still buy everything we like but the collection is smaller. I don't think they're winding it down (yet) but I think they reined in the budget and resource allocation to it. The color palettes are still great and the fabrication still top notch. It's just a scaled down project.
