    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.

    We need an EddieMcZee sport coat stamp of approval emoji.

    Then we could all just slap one in our quotes of home runs like macjedi's jacket.

    Who develops these things?

    Mike: Please see emails and/or PM about missing invoice for your latest combined shipment to me. It's kind of urgent, the storage period at Norwegian Customs while waiting for documentation is quite short, then they return to sender.

    When it comes to trouser alterations, I'd say that there's two key considerations:

    1) Leg alterations are generally more difficult and expensive than waist & seat alterations. So if you're between sizes, then it's often best to go with the leg fit that works better. If you like the leg fit of the 33 but you need the waist of the 34, then buy the 33 and let it out. Or vice-versa.

    2) If the leg fit is okay on both sizes but something like your waist or seat is the issue, then if possible, go up a size and have a tailor take it in.

    For CPaul specifically - I'd suggest buying both the 33 and the 34 if you can. Check them out in person so that you can compare and contrast the two fits. And you can certainly feel free to email us pics for advice.

    This is freaking mind blowing. What a great combo!





    For the Chromexcel belts, I don't typically advise to size down, but you certainly can.

    Single-piece, full grain leather belts will often stretch with wear. They're also stronger because you're dealing with just a single, thick piece of skin. You won't get much stretch at all on the suede belt because that's stitched onto a veg tan liner, and two part belts tend to hold their shape more.

    The CXL belt stretch depends on how tightly you wear it and where your trousers/jeans sit on your waist, so some customers will experience more stretch than others. A properly fit belt is going to fit in the middle of its sizing range, so you usually just move to the next hole as it gets a little bigger. I haven't heard any issues of belts stretching so much that they're too big to easily wear. But if you own one of our belts already and you see the stretch that you get, just measure it out and see where it would fall if it was 2" shorter. You can then decide to size down or not with a subsequent piece.

    For the Heirloom Sweaters, that British Lambwool is on the coarser side when it's new. It's certainly not as soft as our Scottish sweaters. But it's best to think of this like raw denim, or Harris Tweed, or a new pair of boots. It's designed to break in and soften with wear. It's never going to feel like cashmere, but it will naturally pick up oils with wear and soften up quite a bit. This texture is also what gives it such a long wearing life, and allows it to keep its shape while maintaining such an open knit.

    It can be hand-washed, but be advised - this will probably bring back the original coarseness, as you'll wash the oils out. It will shrink it up a bit too. Just google how to hand-wash a handknit sweater and block it out while drying.


    Thank you sir! We packed them up today.


    I'd advise picking up both a 34 and 36 belt if that's realistic. If not, go for the 36.

    This is from last year. Breaking these out shortly as it is now certainly glove weather.

    The leather on these is really nice. It's extremely supple and it has a nice finish to it. I personally like the green lining on this color (not sure if it's the same for all).

    This. My hands are too small for a 7.5, so I have a custom pair from Kent Wang (which is in turn Chester Jeffries, I believe).
