    In other news... man, $35 for a loopwheeled tee? Insanity. Had to pick one up. Any ideas if this is limited run/stock?

    Thank you!

    No, these tees are here for the long run - although we'll probably phase certain colors in and out. I'm thinking to keep Navy-White-Vintage Black as our basics and do 2-3 new colors every few months.

    I'm actually going to put in a reorder soon. For the new colors, I'm thinking Olive Drab (like an army shirt) and Burgundy. Any other requests? These would come around end October, so I'm going to stick to darker and more subdued colors. We can bring out the bright stuff for Spring.


    Yup! We're not far away now, they should ship any day from Los Angeles. Once I have the packing list I can even build the stock out online while they're still in transit.


    Overall we've been nailing 3-4 weeks on most of the trouser MTO's, although we've had a few guys here who regrettably had longer delivery times than that. We have about a 95% fill rate within the correct time frame. And when delays happen, it's usually because the pants are initially made with an incorrect detail, and we send them back to be made again.

    That said, the factory is off until 8/15. If you place your order now or then, you're looking at a delivery in mid-Sept. I've got all of the Fall MTO swatches in hand, but I'm taking my time with listing them, as we can't really submit anything until their holiday is over. Southwick is out on vacation too. This is a common thing for our factories - most of them close for about two weeks in August.


    Thank you! We've got a green bridle leather weekender bag and a restock of the briefcases to put up next week


    Thanks for coming by! It's always a pleasure to meet SF guys in person.




    GOAL!!

    Yes, but they sadly won't make it this season. It was taking forever to get the collar right, so I went with the pique t-shirt as an alternative. Might be able to do a long sleeve Lazio polo for the Fall though.


    Will do!


    Thank you sir! I think that you guys will really dig this piece. I have an advance sample that I can show some pics of tomorrow.

    @Epaulet , I think a nice light grey would be a staple for your basic t shirts, as probably henleys too, if you're asking for colors to think about.

    ^ +1. Or a darker, more saturated grey.

    Mike, just a quick question if you have a moment... do you have plans to restock the navy hopsack walts soon? Thanks!

    Also, I know Mike has said that a heavier weight fabric is planned for the LS Henley, but I'll say that the current fabric in LS would make a really outstanding shirt. And would work really nicely for layering.

    +1 to all the excitement about the Garand.

    Are there more stock fabrics of the Driggs coming for fall? Or just MTO?

    Sorry if I missed this somewhere back down the line.

    PSA (only because it just recently sold out), for anyone who missed out on the Samuelsohn Bernard Windowpane Blazer in Size 40, I just received mine and excitedly took it to my tailor immediately. Unfortunately, my monkey arms screwed me this time and there isn't enough fabric in the sleeves to lengthen them the 2 1/2 inches they need. So if anyone missed out, I am happy to pass along the blazer at cost. I'll cover overnight shipping to you. It's absolutely brilliant and am not happy that it didn't work out for me. PM me if you are interested.

    Also for any 38s out there, you should absolutely snag the last one - a fully canvassed blazer in a to die for Loro Piana wool is absolute highway robbery at this price point.

    Going back to school soon (back to poor college student land) but before I become a lurker on this thread again I wanted to give a shout out to Mike @Epaulet for being an upstanding guy who backs up his word. Been rocking the carmina loafers quite a bit and I really appreciate jumping through the hoops for me! I will try and grab a pic of them out in the wild with some rivets as well.

    For the grey shirt, a twisted yarn/heathered would be great. Most heathered grey shirts out there are awful polyester blends.

    Good call! Although, something interesting - nearly every heathered fabric is going to be a cotton-synthetic blend. Unless it's a natural tone, the yarn has to be either piece dyed (dye the fabric before sewing) or garment dyed (dye after sewing) to achieve a color.

    Cotton yarns fully take the dye. Synthetic yarns won't, so you can achieve that heathered look while still choosing a few colors in a given fabric run. Our very first sweatshirts are done with a cotton-poly blend for this reason.

    That said, I'm definitely on the lookout for special fabrics to run the loopwheeled tees in. It's a sensitive process, so only certain things will work, but I've got my eyes open.



    Thank you sir, and enjoy those shoes!


    Yes, we're going to run some basic Fall/Winter fabrics like grey flannel and grey tweed in the Driggs. And we'll restock all of the existing variants except for purple canvas.


    Definitely, we've got a bunch of them coming in shortly

    Mike,

    I am assuming this applies to any order nut currently fulfilled? I placed a Driggs MTO at the start of July. Should I expect it mid-September time frame? I am not in "need" of the order or anything more just looking for general timeframe

    Received my khaki rivet chinos and (on sale!) grey check flannel walts. As always... I love the clothes and the customer service.

    I am planning to be in NYC next month. Can I be measured for the MTM program when I stop by the store?

    Epaulet Garand Trouser Preview

    Here's a few pics of the Garand, WWII-style trouser. Everything here is the final design, except that besom coin pocket will be about half the size

    The construction is only part of the story though. We've got an awesome heavyweight UK twill for this, and each one will go through a 40 min enzyme wash. I think that you'll really dig the end result!
