    I, too, am interested in getting in on the Loden/ Burnt Orange jacket should it come to fruition.

    Hey Mike, since I'm a fan of the Regiment Twill Walts (I have 5 pairs), I think it would be great if you can elaborate on why this English Twill is so much superior. Thanks.

    This is so good. Both of the exotic "game" leathers together!


    Regiment Twill was a US fabric with a lower thread count. It was meant to be a tough, basic twill - something affordable that we could stock all of the time. It felt a bit coarse until several washings.

    This Driggs Twill is UK-made, and it's softer with a higher thread count yarn. Feels very much like Cramerton actually. We'll usually judge a cotton twill on its hand and its strength. Regiment Twill had an okay hand and great durability. This has a really nice hand and great durability. The fit really works (as future fit photos will illustrate) and it's a very comfortable piece. I sold five pairs personally in the Santa Monica shop today.


    Agreed. You're killing it in this Eddie! I love that it's a cool period look, but it still appears very comfortable and natural.


    We could swing a digicam Napoli for $695 in any of the three colors. It would be so freaking tight in USN Navy. Especially paired with the British Khaki driggs.


    Sure thing! The newest Sport Trainers will be more of the same style in three colorways:

    Tan Smooth & Tan Suede
    Black Smooth & Black Suede
    Dark Brown Smooth & Mid Brown Suede

    All of these will come on the same sole.

    Outside of that we have a new Tennis Shoe shape in work which will have a more minimal form. I'll have the sample here at the end of the week. Going to be a while for that though. Unfortunately, shoe development in Italy moves at a glacial pace. Provided that the sample is perfect, we'd probably be at May for the earliest delivery.

    Ditto! I'm interested in the Walt MTO in this fabric...

    lol! They are that bad, so it's a possibility. Unfortunately I have the height of Kobe but the ball-handling skills of Yao Ming.

    Thanks for the excellent service today Mike! These Driggs are awesome. The shirt is a perfect fit and bonus, my wife loves the eggplant color. Let me know when those Wilshires get restocked! The white denim Wilshire might actually be my first white pair of pants... IT IS GREAT!

    Having the new Santa Monica store so close is not going to be good on my wallet...

    Oisin,
    Great photo. What shotgun is that?
    I'm actually starting to casually shop for a new one dedicated to sporting clays

    Thanks. Caesar Guerini Summit Sporting. It's a sporting clays gun, not a true hunting gun, but a sporting clays gun should be versatile and it's the only shotgun I own currently (tho there are many I am lusting after ... I need a light side by side in 16 or 20g for looking badass while upland hunting, a solid semi-auto for ducks and chukkar, etc.). Anyway, as a sporting clays gun I really like it (and hunting gun too tho it is of course a bit heavy). A little bit more money than a basic Browning/Beretta (it was pretty much at the top of my budget) but it fit me well out of the box, the wood and finish is definitely nicer, and I just like how it felt and pointed for me compared to the Browning 725 or Beretta 626. I got 30" barrels because I knew I'd use it for a bunch of different things including hunting and skeet -- you might consider 32" barrels (longer seems trendier these days), plus an adjustable comb and recoil pad for a serious sporting clays setup.

    Yeah, though it might be around there. I'd definitely wear it but not as much as say the LBM 1911 stuff, so I think I'll have to save my SC budget for that (maybe I'll start a navy digicamo SC kickstarter? jk).

    About the LBM 1911 S/S pieces, any idea when those will start to arrive?

    The XXL cowhide Wyatt wouldn't happen to be at the Manhattan store, would it? I'd kinda like to try that on! Never seen an Epaulet jacket available in that before.

    Thank you for the information. I looked at the Beretta 692 which is above my target price range but a nice gun. Will take a look at the Casear when I have a chance. Will probably have to wait until late spring or early summer to get serious in my search though. I expect that will be the earliest opportunity I have to actually shoot any of the ones I'm considering.

    How much do the Chinos shrink?

    I bought size 36 8oz canvas to see how they fit and they were a little to big, as I thought they'd be, but had no problems wearing them with a belt, as they would fall down without one when walking.

    During the approx. 2 moths it takes to get the custom size I wore my first Chinos all the time as they are my favorite pants. So, now I've washed my 36's 3 or 4 times, today they fit perfect and don't need a belt.

    I wash in warm, rinse in cold, I use the delicate cycle. I do dry on hi but just until they are barley dry, not 100%, just to get the wrinkles out.

    I want to buy more, but am unsure of what size to buy now.

    ^ If you hang dry your chinos, they won't shrink at all.
