1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    One wash/dry cycle in and the inseam to the chinos no longer need to be altered. As long as they don't shrink more, I'm pleased.

    No. This coat was a different MTO.

    Thanks for the input everyone.

    I do prefer an office appropriate look as I wear a suit five days a week. It is nice to know it doesn't look trendy and short!

    I'm honestly still OK with how the body fits for you on this.


    Yes, this is the one I waxed! It is definitely not Filson/Barbour style waxing, but I like how it turned out for this fabric (and, Mike, you did note that this fabric would wax up in it's own way). It has a good distressed finish going and is certainly water resistant now. Will probably apply some more wax to it in the future.

    And when are these going to be available?

    I think I'm going to need those as soon as possible... :drool:

    Too funny...I was about to ask the exact same question. As well as can I preorder a 35?

    I think the style dictates the tighter fit. I agree that it is too big but totally depends on the look you are going for

    I am a similar size so I can sympathize. It looks good to me.

    I'll add that with leather, you have to pick: tight or with room for layers.

    So, the question is which do you want with that jacket?

    Gunmetal rivets and #8 boots are a classic combo.

    Hahahha, mine too. Olive check SC MTO can't get here fast enough. Will be a killer jacket.

    Thanks for everyone's input on the Wyatt. Definitely gives me something to think about.


    That's a good question. I think I'd want to be able to layer. Otherwise I might not be able to wear it for too long, as it was in the low 40s today already. :p

    I think the jacket's length trouser's break look fine. since you are going for the classic look, might as well have some very minor break on the pants. if you want the pants to be more tapered, you probably want the jacket to have a more tapered look as well.

    i know you didn't mention this, but the shoulders look too large on you though. maybe you can inquire with mike.

    Thanks for the input -- I know what you are saying about the shoulder. This was my first Epaulet with a structured shoulder and it is a little bit full. Some of it is they way I'm hanging my arms. It is a close call though. There is no way I could size down.

    Edit -- I actually do have another 37 with a structured shoulder and it fits extremely well. I think the Hopsack effect is at work on my grey suit.
