    Two questions regarding MTO chino/trouser options:

    Can an option for a rear cinch be added? I assume it's a similar process to making the side tabs?

    Suspender buttons?

    Thanks!

    Here's a recap of how everything can be customized:

    Fit: Walt, Rudy, Driggs
    Size: 28 - 40 (odds and evens)
    Inseam: 28 - 38" (can choose specific inseam or unfinished)
    Closure: Extended tab (like the walt), Extended Tab with Button, No Tab without button, No Tab with Button
    Top Details: Belt Loops, Side Tabs, Suspender Buttons
    Fly: Zip or Button Fly

    That's the full lineup. There's no rear cinch in the pattern for this season at least, but we may develop that for next. We're working on a single pleat Walt variant which we'd be able to offer in the Fall.

    Hi Mike - are you planning any ability to do MTOs in the future with Samuelsohn and/or LBM?
    Thanks

    Absolutely. Samuelsohn will be built out soon. We have the jackets on hand and they'll have the Walt pant pattern shortly. I'm going to schedule an MTO event in New York in the next two months. Samuelsohn has around eight different fits and they'll send someone who can work with everyone directly. We can order into any of the fits that they offer. For Luigi Bianchi Mantova, it's a bit more complicated. There's actually very few modifications that they can do to the Vittorio shape, but we would have the ability to order into a bunch of different fabrics that we're not stocking. Still working that out. Hopefully we'll have our Southwick swatches too very soon. We can now officially offer full 2 and 3 piece suits in our entire fit, so they'll be a lot of good choices here. They'll also be a rush charge upgrade if you want delivery within 12 working days.
    Haha, thanks! Next week is going to be a good one for trousers. We've got the Trouser MTO program going live and I have a pretty rad factory finds offering for Rivet Chinos. I have about 10 different enzyme washed twills at a really killer price. Most are year-round weight, some are heavier and along the lines of the Fall Walts that we offered. We'll have both online next week.

    I must say, during the Fall and Winter months, for various reasons, I've found myself sort of moving past Epaulet. For awhile it felt almost boring, or stagnant, to me. I worried that with store growth, "the move", and baby Kuhle, Epaulet may have reached its peak and the goodness may have been spread too thin. My once-a-month packages were becoming less regular, less dependable, and were often arriving with handwritten notes from strangers or vaguely familiar folks with a style to which I couldn't relate. I had accumulated most of my basics and was working only on getting rid of the excess in my closet. Furthermore, Epaulet was all of a sudden having "sales", which seemed like a bad sign to me.

    There was one promised piece (and one subscribed thread, of course) that kept me returning during the long winter. That garment was the long awaited French work jacket; I was intrigued by the idea of an open-weave, button-to-the-top, cotton layering piece - something with multiple pockets and maximal utility for carry-on weekend trips to wherever.

    Well, it debuted, I ordered (along with a shot-in-the-dark denim shirt), and now I'm in the puppy love stage with the new Epaulet (i.e. EPLA) all over again. The Doyle is absolutely brilliant, the Engineer fits as promised and will surely outlive me, and the upcoming Spring releases look, simply, excellent.

    Well done Mike, Adele, and crew! You have evidently done a superb job diversifying your business; this thread has never been hotter. Clearly my concerns were ridiculous and my goal of minimizing my closet was equally as short-sighted.

    Please continue to do whatever it is that you are doing. (For one, I can't believe I'm planning to buy sweatpants, let alone online.) Happy 5th anniversary!

    Edit: Oh gosh, now did I just read about MTO Sammy jackets and single-pleat Walts? Well done. Well done.

    For the G&L selvedge twill chinos that are going to be made in the Wilshire shape, will flap pockets be an option or is that only with the Rivet MTO?

    Just checked your thread for the first time in ages. The Samuelsohn look great. What is the largest "stock" size going to be? I only see up to 42 on your site, would a 46 have to be a MTO?

    Yes, really looking forward to MTO. The Baby Gap Sizes don't work for me.

    Did anyone see the G&L online? Am I too late or it hasn't been put up?
