I'd love the option to grab one more Nuovo in wool/silk/linen - so keep us posted if those do become available..

That's so sad to hear about Southwick. The suit and jackets I have from them have been so good to me.
I'm eyeing the corduroy suits now, but funds are tight at the moment. What's the absolute last date I can place an order, April 31st?

The changes at southwick surprise me, but maybe they shouldn't.

Mike - In terms of orders for suiting, is the perfecto blue hopsack still a pretty conservative blue? Or more bold? Is there by chance a charcoal reda hopsack available? If not, which charcoal would you recommend as the closest to 4-season for Phoenix?

I ordered a perfecto blue suit in the spring, but they ran out of fabric. I've been debating trying it again, but I kind of have the same question. how bright of a blue is it?

they wrote me that April 1st is the deadline, but I imagine we can push it a bit past that. I’m honestly not sure how strict or not they’ll be

@Epaulet

Debating between getting a pair of Southwick trousers or a couple of MTO Wilhelm chinos... any idea when the MTO Wilhelms will be available?
I actually just received our hard paper set of Wilhelm patterns, so we’ll be ready to cut customs in a few weeks. The fabric selection is going to be pretty small though. Mostly cottons and chambrays... the kind of stuff that we usually work with.

if you want a wool, linen, corduroy or something like that then Southwick will be a better option.

Perfecto blue is gorgeous! I actually have a pant made up in that in the studio, I’ll shoot photos and a quick video of it today

Here’s a little preview of our next shirt order... everything should be here in two weeks or so

first two fabrics are our preorder items from a few weeks ago. I think the Mason oxfords are going to look really fresh!

we’ll definitely name that speckled chambray “Cookies and Cream”

Last Call for Woolrich Donegal Southwick Items

Hey guys,

Just got off the phone with Southwick, and they're no longer going to accept any customer fabrics. This apparently began back in January. but I never saw the email about it.

Anyway. we've had a few guys order full suits and sportcoats in the Woolrich Tweed. All of that will be made without a problem. If anyone else wants either of these items, I have to send them the fabric by tomorrow. So here are the links.. and our southwick20 code will get you 20% off of that.

SOUTHWICK TWEED SUITING

SOUTHWICK TWEED SPORTCOATS

It's going to make a freaking awesome suit. You can see how beautifully it made up as a trouser. With the matching jacket, that's going to be absolutely bonkers.

We'll keep offering this fabric as a trouser through Hertling until it sells out there. We can do about 7 or 8 more pairs. And I'll have it available for custom Doyle and Sinclair jackets here in LA.

Thanks Mike. I'd be looking for a lighter khaki/stone. Can we get zip fly instead of button fly in the MTO?

Otherwise I might get a reda hopsack from southwick. Can I customize the top closure on a Rudy? I'd prefer a button rather than hook and eye (like the Greenpoint).
