    I love the idea of the Incotex-style chinos, but if they're lower rise and slimmer than Rivets, it would probably be pretty tough for me to fit into them. I already have to get Rivets sized up to 36 and then taken in 2" in the waist in order to fit my thighs. And depending on the material sometimes that's still too tight for me.

    In other news, it was chilly enough outside today for me to break out some tweed. Here's my custom order olive marl Harris Tweed jacket (complete with goat suede elbow patches) from 2011, my first special order piece from Epaulet. Also wearing my western print EP belt and grey herringbone windowpane FF trousers:

    Um details? Those are absolutely stunning.


    Come to think of it, any rise much lower than RC's might be a little bit of a challenge for me.

    And that's a great fit on that jacket. Enjoy tweed season!

    I like Incotex but much prefer the Rivet fit, i.e. with the higher rise and sensible amount of taper. I have many trousers from all the high end Italian makes but always reach for my Rivets. Also I don't know if I'm in the minority on this, but lighter weights are a turn off for me. Prefer a minimum of 11-12oz in cotton, preferably with a soft brushed finish (as opposed to a hard canvas finish).

    Fwiw, people who like Incotex and lighter weights should check out Yoox, ehaberdasher, etc. (The nice heavier weight models never go on sale :devil:)

    Shirt looks fantastic, though I'm not super drawn to denim shirts since I wear jeans so much. Will it be offered in another fabric (heavy chambray, sanded canvas) at some point? Just curious.

    Thanks for Work Jacket update. Bummed it's not until Jan but at least now I can plan for it.

    Those chinos sound great but not really my jam, though I'd guess you could move them at that price for sure. I echo the sentiment that I don't really need/want lighter weight pants. My life is such is that if it's really warm, I just wear shorts. (Or 7oz Rivets!)

    Questions:

    -Sorry if this has been asked/answered but are the t-shirts going to be mid weight, heavy, or what? Black/white/gray to start, or a wider range? Actually really stoked on these as many of the options that might seem good in the market are pretty forgettable.

    -+1 on the hoody question. Is that a thing that's happening, or not for now?

    Keep it up dudes. You're crushing.

    Does anyone have a southwick sportcoat in a short or an xtra short, ideally in the 36-38 size range? Would you measure the length of the jacket for me? I'm trying to get some real world measurements vs the size chart and whether I should stay with XS or go S on
    my next jacket.

    Thanks!

    I'd be up for Incochinos, though I'd try them in-store since my Rivets look a little odd in the front (something which sadly isn't fixed by sizing up)

    Mike - YES to the chinos with lower rise and slimmer legs. I think this would be a great commercial option for you and from a selfish perspective something in which I'd frequently invest!

    Instead of the Incochinos, I'd personally vote for more of a rugged heavy duty EPLA style pant. Something in the vein of the duck canvas, esp. the DWR canvas.

    To me there is more room for expansion in that segment of the pants, as opposed to something that falls between the rivet and walt. Just my vote/opinion.

    So the navy shawl collar fisherman in M sells out while I'm away from computer, and the crewneck while I'm asleep. [​IMG]
