• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Very close to pulling the trigger on the "Last American" sinclair. Before I do though had a quick Q - any plans/possibility to do a sashiko sinclair? Because that would be the bomb.

Any chance for an outdoor shot of the Loden Wool Cavalry Twill? I want to make sure it's not too close to something I have. Thanks!

@Epaulet any chance of some sweet, basic canvas Doyles? Need to replace my old green one, and wouldn't mind paying an upcharge for sleeves and body length.

I think I'm also gonna pull the trigger on a sinclair woolrich suit. Been wanting a kind of casual-ish suit. @Epaulet , what do you think for me? 44 Sinclair, 37 Rivet?. I'm tempted to try 36 rivet, but I feel liike it'll be too small in waist, and 37 Wilhem will be too big in thigh (turns out I don't need as much leg room as I used to!).

I'm also kind of tempted by the Southwick option, but pretty intense for a first custom suit option.

@espen absolutely, I could pretty much do that anytime. Figure the price would be $265 through our custom program, with most colors available. Drop me a PM and I can set it up for you.

@apolloali yeah I think that the LA shapes are a better match for your style & needs too. 44 Sinclair and 37 Rivet sounds right on. Better to go a bit bigger with the pant... you can always have the waist done at Orchard Tailors for cheap if you need any changes. We'll have that preorder up until Saturday/

Been a minute but all EP today pretty much. Sashiko Doyle, Chain Stitch Shirt, and not pictured the Herringbone EZ’s. (Pretty much the go to pants.)

Really great! So glad that you got that shirt, it really looks awesome in your pics

This just went out in our newsletter, but in case you didn't see it.

Also, the "Portuguese Flannel" item is going away next week (Individualized is going to sell off the remaining cloth), so if you want any flannel pieces, now is the time to order. You get your choice and you save 15 points.

Holler at me here with any questions on cloth and whatnot. And if you want to order but you don't know your sizing, just write "HOLD FOR SIZING" in checkout notes. We'll circle back around to figure out what you need.

Order by Midnight to Save 15% On New Top Shelf Fabrics & All Custom Shirts!

Right at the buzzer, we've received 15 incredible new Top Shelf fabrics from the absolute best mills on Earth. Each piece is crafted by a team of six artisans with handsewn collars, cuffs, and yokes. We have the three insane cotton-cashmeres pictured above and a lot of of other gorgeous pieces.

Order by midnight tonight and take advantage of these killer deals - including on these newest arrivals!

* Take 15% off all custom shirts until 1/28 with code custom15

* If you buy FIVE shirts, you'll receive ONE of them for free. Buy all 5 at the same time, and we'll refund the lowest price shirt after your order is submitted. You can stack this with the custom15 code!

CLICK HERE TO SEE THE WHOLE CUSTOM SHIRTING ASSORTMENT

And this "Innocent Lamb" Cotton-Cashmere is just as rad as that name would imply. It's in top shelf and its made with an entirely handsewn collar, cuffs, and yoke. Comes in a baller box with a magnetic closure!

Alright, I did it! Been wanting a donegal tweed suit for ages and esp. something more casual and easy to break into separates. Hard to resist. The Chestnut Cord was also super tempting, but cord suits seem so hard to actually pull off.

As for tailoring, I use Wagner in FiDi and he's pretty affordable too. 12 for a hem and 20 for tapering.

I do wanna get a Southwick suit one day — I had one of the Club Monaco Made in America suits that came from Southwick and it was INCREDIBLE. But yeah, I basically only wear them at weddings so unless I really commit to the formal suit wearing in my day-to-day....

Wearing a recent suit makeup for the first time after getting the pants back from being hemmed. Feel like a million bucks today. Working with Mike, we absolutely nailed in my preferential fit for both the Nuovo and Taylor, and it such a mental relief to finally have work attire that not only fits well, but makes me feel elevated in my profession.

Hertling Promotion Ends at Midnight

Quick heads up.. our promo with Hertling ends tonight. They're ready to start cutting these next week, and we're looking forward to a fast and precise turnaround for all of these.

Here's the link to check it out and seriously bless your wardrobe with the good stuff:

Couple of last minute notes:

1. I made a video of my top three favorite swatches. Definitely consider these if you don't already own something like them:


2. If you need help to figure out your sizing or trouser model, then you can still order today and reserve the fabric. Just write "hold for sizing" and I'll circle back to determine the best fit. I just need the trousers to be paid for today as I have to foward the full reservation and cost payment to Hertling first thing in the morning.

3. For anyone considering a move to #teamivory.. these photos of a trouser'd dressform upon that virginal white fabric might be just the thing to push you over the edge:
