    I have a quick question about the tweed fabric. I have noticed on my highland tweed trousers, as well as on an older pair of grey irish tweed pants, that there is a black line forming on the back seam of the pant. I don't know if it is from pulling or something else (though it was noticeable much sooner on the highland fabric, maybe due to the lighter color).

    Anyways, it is pretty obvious now, and I was wondering if it is something that can be fixed, as well as what might be the cause of it. I have attached a photo that doesn't really capture it, but hopefully suffices. I love these pants and was hoping to find an answer/solution to this issue...otherwise I fear being relegated to wearing them only with a long jacket.

    Oh shit, I am!

    Awesome - we look forward to seeing you!

    No worries, I've got a restock coming in about 10 days. I'll post it up on the thread when they arrive. That's going to be the last of the fabric for the season though, so you'll want to grab a pair when the new inventory comes in.

    Just waiting on the patternwork so that we can scale the jacket into shorts and longs. Should have it soon, and then we can run select fabrics in it on special order

    Hmm, I can't see much in your photo, but the only thing that I can imagine is that the rear seam is pulling and starting to show the inside threads a little. I'd run the trousers by a tailor - if you have a problem along the main seam, that can almost always be fixed.

    Just got the original shadow dot today. Love it! The fit is great, although it is just a tad short in the arms, and I do not plan to baby this, so I'm concerned about shrinkage in the wash. For the record I am 6'2' and the shirt is a M.

    If anybody has the OG shadow dot in a L (unworn), I'd be happy to trade my brand new M. If nobody wants to trade, I'll probably just end up keeping it, but PM me if you'd be interested in buying it. (figure it would save Mike the hassle of processing a return and then reselling)

    ^

    the fabric is exactly the same texture as the pink/red floral shirt. seems quite sturdy and less prone to wrinkling like the blue tattersall. slightly thicker than the blue gingham.

    Received my original shadow dot shirt the other day. Looks awesome! I'm still trying to figure out what to wear it with though. I feel like it looks strange with raw denim, but maybe I'm not used to it. Great shirt though!

    What other fabric/color combos/choices for the Walt trousers will you be offering later this year?

    Hey Mike,

    Any update on when the gunmetal and graphite chinos will be coming in? Really looking forward to picking up at least one of the two.

    Thanks, man!

    Yup, that's exactly right. The Japanese paisley comes from the same mill as last season's floral pattern. It's a nice, sturdy all-year fabric. It looks great untucked.

    Thank you sir! The OG shadowdot is a decent match to raw denim, but it really shines with grey and tan tones. It's brilliant with any kind of chino, and it looks great with our grey dress trousers and flannels.

    Oh man, quite a few. Off the top of my head: Grape Herringbone, Deadstock Olive Guncheck, Navy Wool/Cashmere, one or two Donngal Tweeds, Charcoal Flannel, Medium Grey Flannel, all three colors of Moleskin....

    When things arrive, I'll tell you guys which are ongoing fabrics and which are deadstock or close to selling out. Two things to keep an eye our for are Navy Flannel and the Deadstock Olive Guncheck. Both of these pants are amazing, and the next delivery will be the only one.

    Unfortunately not at the moment - we're just running that guy in Matte Black Chromexcel. They look bad-ass in that though!

    Probably about six weeks out from now. My LA production is a bit of a wildcard, but I'm pushing to get everything as soon as possible.



    I'm shooting a ton of new product today. We just got our Fall '11 Superfine Merino hand-dye sweaters in. Holy god, the colors are so good. And I'm happy to report that there's a slim-as-all-hell Turtleneck in there. We also received the Vanson for Epaulet Triton Jacket in British Tan waxed cotton. It's a stunner. Look for plenty of updates this week!

    Possibly. I don't think that we'll get them online this week though, even if they come in. But I'll definitely let you guys know.

    Hey Mike - it was great to meet you yesterday, I'm glad I had a chance to stop by the store while I was in NYC over the weekend. It was nice to try some stuff on, and now I know for sure I need the Rudy fit in just about everything...too bad the Rivets were still a little too tight in the thighs for me. I'll definitely stay on the lookout for the Cramerton restock and the measurements for the special order Long jacket sizes. Good thing I got to try the jacket on first too - I probably would have ordered a 42L instead of a 44L, which is actually the size I'm going to need....it should be a perfect fit with about an extra inch to the jacket and sleeves! The Brown Houndstooth is going to be an amazing piece, and I really liked the look and feel of the cloth on the Caine hopsack, I may end up getting that one as well. Good luck with everything in the next 2 weeks, and can't wait to see some fit pics of the new tux!
