    Thanks for all of the Reddit feedback guys - I'm glad that you enjoyed it! It was fun to do.

    I'll confess that I didn't really know how to use Reddit before today. Our website always took a ton of referrals from there and I've known that we have a large fan base their for our products - especially the Rivet Chino. It's a fun platform to use and a very friendly environment. I'm sure that I'll be there more often from now on.



    Yes, our LBM capsule line is going to be dope! It's similar to what we're doing with Samuelsohn. The jackets won't be like LBM 1911 as they'll be made in wool and linen and they're dry clean only. They're part of the more sartorial Luigi Bianchi Mantova line. But they'll fit close to LBM 1911 (with a few tweaks) and they'll have a gorgeous, unbelievable soft shoulder. We choose a tight lineup of pretty unique fabrics for it too - really interesting lightweight wools that are hard to come by. I think that you guys will really dig them! And MTO's are absolutely possible, with a pretty quick turnaround. So we can accommodate any size.


    For sure! I have a ton of places to recommend. Shopping-wise, many guys will hit Epaulet, Unionmade, Fred Segal, and the 3rd Street Promenade when they come here.

    Restaurants: R&D and Hillstone for corporate-but-good American, Father's Office and Rustic Canyon for Burgers, Water Grill for a scenic spot by the ocean, Izzy's Deli if you're drunk after 1AM (they're open 24 hours).

    Sight Seeing: Santa Monica Pier is fun and a famous attraction. Palisades Park is a lovely spot. You can drive to Malibu in about 15 minutes on Pacific Coast Highway.

    Drinks: Copa D'Oro and the Misfit both have pretty killer cocktails.

    Karaoke: If you're here on a Tues or Wed then Karaoke at the Gas Lite is an absolute must. It is the perfect dive bar with the perfect group of somewhat crazy people doing unexpected songs. StanVan and Oisin will back me up on this!


    That is hands-down one of my favorite fits from you. It's awesome!

    And Wisith, you should check out Reddit. I feel that site could be right up your alley.


    That's great! Thanks for picking up the Napoli. And yes, I think that work jacket will be right up your alley. I'm excited to show you guys the final sample in a week or so - it came out really boss. This piece is Matt's baby. We're going to release it in Navy, Moss, and Chocolate Duck to start. We're working on a denim variant and some other surprises with it too.

    And yes, the Navy Duck Walts match the jacket. I'd recommend dry cleaning them only if you want them to match the jacket. A wash won't change the color too much, but it will change the texture, and will soften the fibres. Like it does to raw denim. Up close, it will probably look a bit different then the coat.

    Brilliant AMA Mike, the Daniel Day Lewis story is great. Always knew he was a dapper dude - he rocks a Barbour International a lot - so no surprise he's an Alden fan. He lives up the road from here in the Wicklow Mountains, I'll be sure to mention you if I ever bump into him! :)

    Great stuff too about the EPLA line and Luigi Bianchi Mantova x Epaulet. And huge congrats to you and Adele on the impending arrival. I'm a new dad myself, destroys your clothes budget but all worth it.

    Great Reddit convo Mike, and -- more importantly -- congrats to you and Adele!! You're going to have one well-dressed kid over there!

    Whoa parenthood!

    Best thing for your soul, worst things for your clothes. Haha, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world! Enjoy the journey :)

    I definitely like this. Those trousers do strike a nice balance.

    I'll chime in to say the Reddit AMA was very enjoyable reading. It is truly the first thing I read on that service. You did a pretty good job just jumping in with both feet, Mike. Bet you won over a few new customers and fans for sure. Thanks for the shout out. That's some pretty heady company for me. :slayer: Probably the height of my Internet fame, or at least I'll hope so.

    And, congratulations to you and Adele as well. That's very exciting news and best to you both.

    Yeah, that would be bad for me my wallet too. I'm not sure if I could resist dressing my son in Rivet Chinos...:p

    Congrats on the new baby Mike!

    And a little Hardy shawl collar cardigan? That would be cute until it got frozen blueberries on it. Unless Mike can get it in Frozen Blueberry Marl. :nodding:

    Mike, for what it's worth, I'd be all over a nice simple wool - It would be a great in-between a casual jacket and a blazer - AKA perfect with Walts here in Seattle.

    Damn, so I read this whole thing -- really thoughtful and insightful responses. Very interesting to hear about the early days of starting the business, the pitfalls of following trends (that women's shoe thing? holy crap!), surprise successes, etc.

    It sounds cool, but I don't think I'm going to hold off on my purchase of a duck canvas sportcoat. Plus... I sort of want it now and don't want to wait.

    Man, if your size is available in the duck canvas Napoli, grab it now. Such a great piece and a great price. You did see it on the sale page right?
