    ^ Who would have thought the binocular shirt would be such a success, both in terms of design and popularity. In fact, I'm wearing the F/W one right now...
    Yeah, that surprised me too. I thought the red based plaid version was pretty strong (with the grey one being better), but it quickly sold everywhere regardless. I'll have to give the S/S madras version a close look though, as it seems it would be pretty wearable.

    Here are Gary's selections guys.

    Info from Gary:
    I have not worked up the prices yet but there are no major increases compared to last season.
    I'll be happy to take pre-orders if anyone is interested.
    I did order lots of smalls, sometimes two in an item and sometimes just one.
    It's the largest order I've ever given them.

    Awesome, thanks for posting those. I love the pocket squares and ties.

    Is that the fabric that was a bit of sheen to it?

    Huh? Chin strap on the engineer jacket? Aside from that, materials on the Bedford & Engineer look nice.

    The only thing that really get me interested is, oddly enough, the floral shirt.

    EG always seems better for Fall/Winter IMHO.

    ^ I like the binocular shirt in that fabric. It would be nice to see a madras version too, if one will exist.

    Yeah, I'm really interested to see the other materials/patterns for the binoculars shirt this season. I'm definitely going to have to pick one up this time around.

    Good to see the pathfinder coming back. I have always wanted them and never got around to getting one. I wished they made that in some light black wool and not poplin though.
