    Is the Rudy fit denim still scheduled to be released in February? I'm wearing a pair of awful jeans today that are too tight, can't wait to get something that might actually fit me!

    I sense something "rain system" in my future.

    Mike -- perhaps it is too early to discuss, but I'd love to hear how the Samuelsohn program will compare to the Southwick offerings in terms of fit, construction, value, etc.

    Thanks!

    @StanleyVanBuren, why the sudden push towards black?

    I realize these pants are navy hopsack, but the stark contrast of the photo brought it back to mind

    Every time I see a shot of that jacket I regret not buying one. Anyone here with a size 38 for sale?

    This is a real nice color combination. I dig how the suede compliments the jacket.

    Stopped by the store last night to pick up a pair of suede Carmina's I ordered a while back off the sales page and while there grabbed a couple of belts (my first 2 Epaulet belts which I'm sure will be great) and I also picked this up from the new EPLA line. Picture doesn't really do it justice - snapped it and the battery died - so it was done in 1 take but it's a really nice looking casual/comfortable piece that I expect to wear a lot. Like all things Epaulet, highly recommended.

    Same here. I have the other two marcello jackets but didn't get this one. Have looked for it in Marketplace for awhile now

    That looks like a really nice fleece.

    Hey all. I'm thinking about ordering some Rudy fit navy hopsack trousers to complement the navy hopsack MTO jacket I had made this past summer.

    The Jacket is a Napoli style made up with medium brown horn buttons open patch hip pockets and welted breast. In addition to wearing the trousers on their own I feel like this could make for a nice suit for non-formal social events or just-because business wear

    I have three main concerns:

    1. Will there be any issues with fabric matching? I know people have done MTO hopsack suits but I don't if in those cases they received a Southwick-made pant rather than a Walt/Rudy. Even if the fabric is the same am I still running a risk of variations in color?

    2. Is this jacket makeup just so strongly toward the odd jacket end of the spectrum that wearing it as a suit will look odd?

    3. I've never had a chance to try on the Rudy but I'm pretty certain that the cut is going to be better for my body shape than the Walt is (big ol' thighs and tush) I could chance it but I'd much prefer to try on a sample. Does anyone know if either of the New York stores have a range of larger size Rudy samples one could try on?

    Any and all feedback is welcome. Thanks muchly.

    Regarding the first one, I remember Mike once saying that there is a possibility that there will be a variance in color between the navy hopsack fabric if you order your jacket and suit at different times, but that the difference should be so small that it would be hard to notice.

    Re: matching - I asked the exact same thing about the navy hopsack, and Adele said it match up fine.

    I ordered the hopsack trousers many months after purchasing the jacket. The colors were indistinguishable.

    It's always best to check. I had to wait for another batch of trousers to match my jacket. YMMV.
