    Forgive me, but is there an SF discount available to push me over the top?

    Looks good. I especially like the fabric choice.

    Looks amazing. Can you go into a little detail about why the price is so high?

    I'm guessing nice materials, detailed construction, and made in the U.S.

    The fabric and construction methods used were expensive. Things like the one piece underarm reinforcement (rather than having it in two pieces) requires an extra step in the construction, and so on. The high quality hardware is not cheap either... The retail would have been more except that Apolis ate some of their margin.

    Will this bleed onto other clothes?

    I'd also imagine doing such a limited production run makes the price a bit higher. Cheaper to do stuff in bulk. Shirt/jacket looks real nice though.

    Both Ryan and I have worn this (Ryan for over a week), and we haven't noticed any bleeding...

    They don't have a discount code but I believe they have a context cash thing, where you get context cash for every $100.

    This looks great

    Waxed 12 oz. cotton? That has got to be one heavy shirt.

    The combination of oiled finish and blue insides will probably yield a pretty kick ass patina. Looks like some quality idears were put into this piece.

    It's essentially a jacket that costs the same as a BoO oxford. Not a bad price methinks.

    I'm a little dazed that I've just paid this much for a heavy shirt, but it's like someone reached into my head and extracted exactly the kind of thing I'd want. I am powerless in the face of such things.

    I'll field this one. You see, it actually costs more to put the pocket on the right side of the shirt vs. the left.

    Ain't that right, Wonderful Counselor?

    Looks like a stury shirt, kinda hard to see details though due to it being black.

    I stand corrected my monitored at work sucked, i can see the details now. Very nice shirt.
