    what do you mean fall apart? I was going to pull the trigger but I want to hear your story first. Pics would be helpful of damage or craftsmanship flaw.

    Just wanted to share my fondness for the plum rivets! I think they are even easier to wear/match than the supposedly more neutral moss.

    many of the last batch of natural cxl belts started to split. if there were any pictures, they're from more than a year ago. the story was that when the belt was constructed, there wasn't any cxl available that was thick enough, so the belt was two layers of cxl glued together, and I guess it could come unglued. since then, i recall Matt has said he wasn't gonna use construction methods like that again since it had a higher failure rate than was acceptable.

    Exactly right - the first Natural CXL belt that we ran in 2010 was a two-piece belt (outer leather cemented to a veg tan liner) and made in an entirely different factory.

    Our CXL belts now are phenomenal. Each one is made of a solid cut of leather with a consistent width. Entirely different factory in an entirely different part of the country. We've gotten excellent feedback on them.


    Just received it yesterday! I updated the stock online:

    Ah sorry, we only had two units and they both sold. Filson is totally tapped out as well. I've got the other jacket (convertible hunting coat) going online soon though, and we have two smalls in that.


    Glad that you like it! I've been wearing them more than I care to admit

    Grey cotton cash Driggs came in today in 33. Too big so I'll try 32...my first try with Driggs (and I've dropped weight). Hope 32 works.

    If any Toronto folks want them before I return then PM me.

    I'm about to return Speckled Chambray in Large. it's a little snug on me and I ultimately have too many chambrays lying around. Checking to see if anyone wants it before it goes back.

    Hey,

    I haven't tried the driggs before. How do they compare to the Walt? I wear a 33 in Walt's.

    Is anyone hanging their heirlooms in the closet? I typically fold them up to avoid stretching, wondering if that is an issue for these.

    I always fold knits. While these are very well made, they will sag eventually. Head to a thrift shop and see the horrors of old, high-quality sweaters that have become a blobby mess from being hung on a hanger. Lots of Scottish cashmere and English lambswool have met a cruel fate in this fashion...

    I'm 33 in Walt (32 waist with altering) and I think these seem to run larger than my 33 Walts.

    Can't comment on whether or not it works though.

    Says its for knits, golf shirts, polos. I think the rubber on the end helps hold the garment without damaging the natural shoulder however since these knits are heavy good old gravity will stretch them

    ^^ This +1

    The Heirloom Cardigan and the Hardie Cardigan should absolutely be folded only. Especially the Heirloom, as a hand-knit like that will stretch out quickly on a hanger.

    I also fold sweaters exclusively. The only knits that I'll hang are sweatshirts.

    Mike,

    Is there a possibility of having a Doyle MTO? I love my chambray Doyle and want an olive one, but I'm a 48L. Seems the pattern was built out for the chambray then it may be easy to do an MTO? Just trying to get in on more of the Doyle action...

    My mocha calvary twill MTO arrived, and it has an insanely awesome hand and texture. I think they may become my favorite pair of trousers! [​IMG]

    I'm trying to build up a respectable business casual baseline of outfits and I'm looking for some advice. Calvary twill definitely has some great texture and surface interest. Does it work for a business casual outfit? Due to it's texture, can I pair it with a blazer, such as a navy hopsack one?

    As far as colors, can I pair any of the following with a hopsack navy blazer and either a white or blue OCBD shirt (and optional woven tie)?

    I may be wrong, but I'm thinking gunmetal, khaki, mocha, and olive cavalry twill trousers with a white or blue OCBD, woven tie, and navy hopsack blazer (epaulet MTO hopefully) would make a great set of basic business casual outfits.

    Does matching those colors and textures work? Would cavalry twill match up with a hopsack blazer and OCBD shirt? Am I understanding business casual correctly or do I have a mismatching?

    Yesterday was all Epaulet:

    I really like this loden suede jacket. Yes, the sleeves are slightly long, but it looks better when I am not robo-posing. With purple gingham shirt, stone UK canvas Rudys, caramel calf belt, and saddle shell Carmina shortwings.
