    From the article "...if it fits like ass...doesn't really count much"
    Uh...I knew this one girl in college and her ass...well, nevermind :)

    On to other things. Tell us about the double monks!
    Was going to order a pair from elsewhere but may need to hold off now.

    My Epaulet package arrived today. Pretty happy with the look and feel of both the Desmond jacket and matching slacks. Turns out the Rudy will work just fine with some hemming so I'm not too worried about that. What I am worried about is taking the jacket to a new tailor though. I sized for the shoulders so the waist/sides need to be taken in, hope the tailor's up for the task, otherwise :violin: The Ashland tie of course, is good to go.

    ETA: +1 Bay Area

    LA!!

    only downside to either location is no more no-tax. Browsing and trying on is very good, but so is not having to pay ~10% sales tax!

    Hey Mike, any chance of non-cargo flannel trousers in the fall (maybe in a nice mid grey)? I will have to check out the cargo version though...

    Well, for the record I love Boston, SF, and LA! Our third location is probably going to be another Manhattan shop though. We won't open it this year, but I'm looking to do it early next Spring. I actually looked at a lot of spaces in LA last year - including La Brea and West Hollywood. It's definitely in the cards for us to have a West Coast location in the near future. At the very least it would give me an excuse to go out there more and (1) eat at In And Out, (2) do balls-out karaoke in Little Tokyo, and (3) listen to KDAY 93.5, "LA's Back in the Day Jams" while in a rental convertible. As long as I have a steady stream of mid-90's Tupac songs, I can put up with any level of horrendous freeway traffic.
    Thanks everyone, glad that you dig the article! The Handlebar guys were really cool, and I think we're going to see a lot of good content coming down the road from them. And yes, that end quote is killer!
    You bet! They're arriving around 4, I'm shooting them immediately afterwards, and I should have them online around 7 or 8PM. I'll post them here after they're live. This will be the first of many good Fall deliveries!
    Oh no, they haven't arrived yet. I'm thinking that they'll go live around 8/20 with the Natural CXL belts.
    Hmm, I can't release any details just yet, but rest assured, you're gonna love them. Retail will be in the mid 500's and they'll deliver a phenomenal value. We'll have some other sleek European styles to run alongside them. And a surprise special edition that you'll really like. Give me until mid-October, and we can sold that dub monk desire!
    Ohhh yesssss Our Southwick for Michael Kuhle surprise. We'll have solid Harris Tweed and Donnegal jackets too. But the mashup is freaking amazing. It's like a Free and Easy wet dream come to life.
    Thank you, really glad that you're pleased with Cadet Grey suit!
    You bet. We'll run the same Medium Grey and Charcoal Flannel trousers that we did last year. I actually have some stock on them right now.

    Any fit pics of those Bordeaux poplins? I read the advice about treating them like some khakhi chinos but I'm still unsure about how I'll work them into my wardrobe.
