    Ah yes, I ran this by them - but it's unfortunately not something that we can swing for this project.

    That said... there will ABSOLUTELY be Epaulet Rivet shorts this Spring. I know that I missed the boat last year, but that shan't happen again.

    OK, all of the Ends are fully and truly up! I handled all of these fabrics personally yesterday, so please don't hesitate to ask any questions about them.

    It's lighter weight, but won't be see through. It's heavier than a shirt and designed to be used in a pant. We ran oxford chinos way back when.

    So is that Ivy League oxford the same material as the ones you guys ran a few years ago?

    Pretty similar - the hand on this feels better, so it was probably a more expensive yarn. Most of these more formal cottons are Italian. But if's very close.

    Damnit I guess there were no stocks left of that beautiful brown donegal twill tweed with gold speckles then.

    If I was to pick the top five fabrics to pick up, they would be:

    1) Legendary Grey Donegal: You absolutely can't go wrong with this. Great look, great hand. a very nice and wearable weight.

    2) Charcoal Barberis Flannel: This is a very basic fabric that you'll find yourself wearing day in and day out in the colder months. And as our Trouser Ends guys will attest, these Barberis premium flannels have a really exceptional feel to them. It's an absolutely killer deal at this price.

    3) Fields of Gold Cotton-Silk: Do this with no taping and a zip fly and you'll have a perfect dressy gentleman's trouser in the Rivet Cut. It's a really cool and luxurious cloth, and this color can be matched to anything that would work for a khaki pant

    4) Grape Crinkle Distressed Cotton Twill: I'm a sucker for purple things, but this color is very subtle and washed out. These would be perfect with a white shirt, rolled up hem, and sneakers. The fabric dye effect is really rad.

    5) West Egg Madras: our very own Wisith (wj4) wears Madras pants like a boss, and it's hard to him to live much further away from Martha's Vineyard. They're eye-catching and bold, and a really rock n' roll underpinning to a navy jacket in warmer weather. Love it with a polo too. Although it's pretty typical for shorts, it's hard to find a slim pant in this fabric, and this particular oxford cloth is really nice.

    @Epaulet - Can you comment on the weight of those distressed cotton twills?

    I'd guess that they were around 10oz to start. They're pretty close to our duck canvas fabrics in weight - maybe a little lighter, but not much. Crazy soft with all that wash effect on it.

    Thanks! You're going to love them.

    We have to quote 6-8 weeks, but I'm pretty confident that these will be ready in about a month. They're ready to start allocating the fabric this weekend and cutting on Monday.

    And just building on what I wrote yesterday - everyone at the factory is THRILLED with how much of a success this was. We've sold about 200 chinos, which will more than fill in their recent gaps in production and keep people working. They're extremely grateful - as are we - and they're going to ensure that these are all made up beautifully.

    kopped the gray donegal. With the greenish-gray flannel herringbone Walts from last week, I think I'll be set for winter trousers for a while now! (where winter almost means "July" in San Francisco).

    ^ That makes me really happy....

    Mike, will you be putting out more warmer wearing cotton or cotton/linen fabrics? I mean warm appropriate! That grey crinkle I just missed.

    What about fabric changes? Does that have to be a new sale transaction or can one do that through email as well?

    We unfortunately can't do fabric changes - just detail changes on the fabrics that you already purchased.
