    I think I already mentioned it earlier, but as someone who has winters usually reaching -20 Celsius I'm always voting for as heavyweight options as you can get [​IMG]

    Haha, I hear you! Well this product would most likely appear in end February, so we'd make the first round in Spring weights.

    Mike, the plans for the Italian pant sound pretty damn cool...sounds like a great slim summer trouser. But what I'm really stoked about is the denim workshirt...bitching bro, count me in on a few of those. They have that old Schott feeling about them, real workshirt, in a great EP fit. It kind of reminds me of this old school Schott shirt (made for the Japanese market) I found at their sample sale a few years ago...I wore that into the ground! Looking fwd to it!

    Yesterday was Parent Teacher Conference Night for me, so of course, i wore Orange pants:

    Excellent, Mike. Being someone who lives and wears gear on both ends of the spectrum often (MC during the week, sporty during weekends (sweatshirts, jeans, sneakers, etc.):
    1. Sweatshirt sample looks great, but I would vote against the X stitching at the front, its a standard usually for crew neck sweats, but personally (and specifically for the one you posted), I think it would bring down the clean look you produced. It would be nice to get a break from the norm and get this sort of product with your fit and construction without the look you see everywhere. Its hard envisioning a 2" reduction in opening but hopefully it doesnt make it too tight at the top, I like a slightly looser neck on sweats to allow for some visual layering and even to allow the possibility of layering over (get ready) a button down.

    2. EPLA washed chino sounds cool, but you lose me at lower rise. I think your rivet chinos are great, the one slight modification or critic I always had was wishing the rise was slightly higher by like a 0.5" or so. Closer to 10.5" from crotch seam to top of waistband. I couldnt imagine going lower than your current specs on rise without terriorizing those around me with a visual that could lead them to be believe I work in the plumming industry (not that there I anything wrong with that).

    SC looks great. The elbow patches are definitely the right choice with the Harris tweed.

    Mike, love the crewneck fleece sample, especially the contrast cuffs/bottom.

    Re the garment dyed chinos -- sounds like a great concept, especially for cotton-linen blends. I picked up the bone cotton-linen FF rivet chino in time for this past summer, and loved having a cotton-linen chino in my closet. Would be even better if the fabric were lighter weight, and offered on the regular.

    This being said, on balance, it sounds like I'd rather buy the existing rivet chinos. If it fits with the EPLA line, though, then I'd say try it out! Maybe all of us more "EPNY" guys will be converted, like I was with LBM.

    I always hate it when your train gets derailed....

    On a side note, I wonder if that's a normal pre-set choice (processed, being shipped, scanned, train derailment, pick one) or if they had to manually write that in.

    Loving the EPLA Work Shirt concept...
    Agree with the others on the rise for the Indochinos. The Rivet rise is just about the bare minimum for me....

    Rivet style chino with a slimmer leg from the knee down, YES!!!!! I have a decent sized waist and chicken legs so this is exactly what I want. I always get my Rivets tapered so I would be thrilled with this. Count me in for multiple pairs

    I'm always after a good denim jacket...Can you provide any details on the denim weight or if it will be a more traditional design (ie Type II, III) or your own take?

    I'm just a bit envious of the walt guys who have all the different tweeds etc. available, I heard they could be very warm especially when fully lined. I'm aching for some kind of a super-heavyweight cotton chino.

    Also, the denim shirt looks pretty interesting to me. I'm curious to hear the price point for that one.

    I agree on the rise; I'm tall and I don't think I could make a lower rise work, the rivet is pushing it already. I also think the the Rivet leg is slim enough, but I could get down with something a tiny narrower for the summer. The lightweight fabric sounds awesome though.

    Haha, I almost busted out those orange tweeds. Perhaps I will for next weekend's home game. The game was great but cold!

    You may be on to something re dying those orange. : )

    Definitely agree re: the rise. Happier if it was .5 inch higher than Rivet. But slimmer from the knee down sounds great.
