    Hey Mike, I've been really interested in your shirts since I heard about your place from the forums and after trying to decide on how your shirts would fit (mainly concerned about the length) I finally got a hold of one in a size small. When you posted that blue sunwashed chambray shirt a little bit ago I thought it looked awesome but you didn't have any smalls. As luck would have it, another forum member had one that he thought was too snug so I took it off his hands. I got it today and WOW, count me impressed with the material, fit, collar roll, buttons, etc. Total package.

    The debate is over, the length works for me untucked for casual wear just as much as it does tucked. The fit is slim on my build (5'8", 150-155lbs.) and the back darting is icing on the cake to keep the back from billowing out. Overall a great slim fit shirt, without the shrunken look and overly restriveness that I would get with say BoO. You got a new customer here, and I'll definatey keep my eyes peeled on your new fall shipments. Great work! Fit pics soon...

    Thanks so much for the kind words tonio028! I'm really glad that a Small made it your way - it fits you spot on. We appreciate the pics!

    Good lookin' out! Yes, we got that earlier in the week. We're a little backlogged after our Panamanian adventures, so I haven't had a chance to shoot them yet. I'll post a few pics tomorrow. Thanks man.

    The debate is over...

    I have had some report with Mike and I love his sense of customer service. I still have yet to purchase anything from him as I am always nervous with new brands. THANK YOU for posting the fit pic as you and I are almost the same size and I have wanted lend my moolah over to Mike as much as I try spread the good word. That pretty much sealed the deal for me and I can't wait to make my first purchase from him! The shirt looks great on you btw. I saw it a couple of days ago and I almost bought it too!

    Thanks, guys. The shirt fabric really is nice too, hard to describe but Mike's hi-res pics show it off really well.

    Glad I could help and we do have similar measurements. That was my problem, the lack of forum members posting fit pics for reference so I thought that others could benefit from them and happy it did.

    Fit looks good, tonio.

    To all those who've been on the fence about these shirts, keep in mind that Mike has a great 14-day return policy.

    Alright, closed the shop, wheeled out my ghetto photo setup, and took a few shots of the new arrivals. They are 100% Pima cotton (UK import) and available in sizes Small through XLarge. I'll have them on our site tomorrow, but feel free to PM me if you want to order one directly before then. May I present:

    Navy/Burgundy Stripe: $130
    Spread Collar, Plastic pearlized buttons
    This one came out really awesome. Works as a casual shirt or a dress shirt. Looks fantastic with a navy blazer.

    We've been working on this beauty for months. If you're looking for a rugged, Made in USA boot for the Fall, then we've got you covered. All will be revealed on Wednesday!

    ^^ Hmm, I'm looking forward to the boot unveiling. Also, Mike, I received the burgundy oxford in the mail as well and again, couldn't be happier as this one is a beauty too. I offer more fit pics (with fresh wrinkles and yes it is paired with a new Gilt purchase from a recent sale [​IMG] ) and a fabric close up below. Great product.

    Yeah man, size small. Though if you're looking for this one in particular, I believe I snagged the last one.

    Kopping machineeee... which Acnes are those?

    Also, stop posting fit pics. You're creating more competition for the smalls.
