    A couple of quick ogle shots of those 2 MTO shirts I mentioned above.

    That Canclini.... That Titano...

    I just want to add here that my MTM Dartmouth SC has now become my favorite article of clothing.

    That is all.

    EFF Indigo linen today. There's no way denying that these are an incredible "blue" trouser and they're a bit more ambitious than what I normally wear. That being said, I received 6 separate compliments on them today so alright!

    Thanks for posting those. They look great! Was just about to ask if someone could post a photo of the Titano. Does that fabric seem well suited to four-season wear, especially in the summer?

    Also looks like Artisan collars all around?

    @CLTesquire looking great in those Indigo linens! Is the true-to-life color just a shade lighter/brighter than your photo above? @DapperDan08 @Nik Telford you guys will love yours. Once it's warm out I'm all about linen Walts, especially Indigo.

    I'd agree they're a bit brighter in real life. The lighting in my office is sub par for sure. It's an amazing, saturated blue.

    I'm in hot, humid Florida and perspire easier than most, so I'm more sensitive to heat related questions - but I'd say that the Canclini Titano (the soft "broken stripe" one) will be fine for me to wear about 95% of the year. On the hottest of hot days, I have other shirts that are lighter/airy'er that I would prefer but that's more because of me. In somewhere slightly less God forsaken and temperate, it would be a year round shirt no problem.

    As an aside, the other Canclini "no name" blue with white stripe is slightly, but noticeably, lighter and a little more open of a weave; I'd wear that 100% all year long.

    Oh, and no, those are Medium Spread (7S) collars, not Artisans. Since I had no first hand exposure I agonized between the two and finally settled on the Medium Spread. I like a substantial collar, my Mazarelli's are my best go-to example, and the Artisan on paper seemed to be comparable, but something about the Artisan's look in pictures didn't appear to my eye to translate as well; especially sans jacket, as well as my Maz's do. Amazing how similar they can compare on paper but still present so differently.

    Hope that helps!

    Thanks, @razl. This is very, very helpful. I'm in NYC, where it gets hot and humid but not on Florida levels, so the Canclini Titano Hand-Sketch Stripe should work for me year round. Some of the photos on the website make it seem as though it has a greyish cast, but your photo makes it look like it's squarely in the light blue family. Is that right?

    And I'd say that the Artisan is a great collar with or without a jacket. It sits on the shirt whether you have stays in or not. I was a fellow skeptic -- it seemed just a tad too big -- but I'm a convert. A note that I've only gotten it on lighter fabrics, and I always ask for the infamous "Ladies Light Lining."

    @applky there's actually two "Titano's"... Razl has the first colorway which is white & light blue. The one that you like is a darker indigo & greycast mix. But yeah the weight is going to be excellent for year-round.

    Like Epaulet mentioned, mine is the white with blue stripes and reads IRL exactly as that. Those sketch stripes are so cool in that it still seems like a pinstriped striped shirt but with a softer, subtle quality that's just great.

    Now that I'm successfully through the growing pains on my first order, I may just give it a whirl on my next. Thanks for the lining tip!

    Hey dudes! I just approved the final design for the Doyle 2.0 (we'll have a better name than that). Should have a physical sample to show in a few weeks.

    We've made a few changes to the original flavor model:

    1) Corrected armhole and chest span: Some guys (me included) found the top part of the jacket to be a bit constrictive, so we relaxed it a touch.

    2) Smaller collar: The original collar was really wide when buttoned, this has been tightened up a bit

    3) Button modular cuffs: The original jacket had a plain hemmed cuff. This ends with a button cuff so that you can undo it and roll it back, just like the Teba. However, we kept it a modular design so that the sleeves can be easily shortened. A tailor removes the stitch that holds the cuff on, and slides it up the jacket, easy as pie.

    4) Deeper Interior pocket: we added about an inch to the depth so that it can accommodate larger smartphones like the 7+

    For the first run, I'm thinking to do 100 units. We'll keep it conservative and work to sell through the first batch quickly. Reorders are going to be a much easier and quicker process than before. I'm going to stick with duck canvas, although I've got a new variety which is a bit softer than what we used previously.

    In terms of colors, I'm thinking 50 units of Moss: this is along the lines of the green that we ran before:

    Then we'll do 30 units of Navy. Was the second-best seller from before

    img_2025.jpg

    And I found this awesome "Dusty Plum" color. It's a French duck canvas and it's insanely soft. I love the tone.. it would jive really nicely with our Cramerton chinos. Price would be a bit higher (about $195 vs $175 for the other colors), and we can do around 20 units. It's deadstock.

    Really into those easy pants. Been looking for something like those for the last couple of months.

    Will the Rudy Rivet fit be included as a drop down option on the MTO Rivets?

    I'm excited to see the new Doyle. That "Dusty Plum" color is great.

    Love the easy pants as well. I will add my two cents and say that I'd like to see them with some more taper to the leg
