I'd love the option to grab one more Nuovo in wool/silk/linen - so keep us posted if those do become available..
Definitely working on that... I hope to have something next week. There's not going to be any additional woolens, but they should have some very light Summer stuff to send.

saying goodbye to Southwick - Robert Noble Highland Sunset Tweed
Absolutely fantastic... that made up so good! Thank you for picking it up and posting the photos

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).
1) Yes, we'll probably have a few shades like that available. And I didn't think about the fly option, but that makes total sense to offer both zip and button on the two models. So yes!

2) Yup, you can absolutely spec that closure for any Southwick pant. Just put it into special instructions

Liberty Rose Print Capri Shirt x Red Chambray Kamigata going strong. Probably one of my favorite collars.

Dope! Those two pieces look so great together. Really nice with the vest too

Re: REDA, is this Sunset Hopsack
the same as this Sunset Wheat Hopsack?
Hmm not sure if they’re the same but definitely similar. Props for having the 2015 pic

Hi Mike, I ordered a pair of SW trousers in late December, any idea when I should expect those? I'm not up to date with the lead times these days

Hmmm could be an issue with that, I know that most of those orders have already shipped. PM me your details and I'll get on it?

@Epaulet

I might go for the perfecto flexo in navy. Is it like a standard 120’s fabric?

Is it anything like fresco? I blew through a fresco suit pretty quickly so I’m hoping for something long wearing. Thanks!
It's honestly awesome. Perfect basic navy tone, and the weave itself stretches naturally. It's still a pure wool.

In terms of strength and durability, I honestly don't have any personal experience with the fabric. It's all new to our assortment and we've only done about a dozen garments in it. REDA goods are really nicely made though, so I'd have confidence that it's as long wearing as any other fine Italian suiting cloth. We've certainly sold a ton of their hopsack, and I've never received any feedback of that wearing out prematurely.

Are the regular Aero jackets (not the unfinished horsehide) also from Comipel?
No, most of that comes from either England or Portugal. I'm honestly not sure where, they keep those tanneries close to the vest. It's awesome leather, and IMO nicer than Comipel's finished front quarter horse. Comipel's real strength is this unfinished leather, which is the freaking best that I've ever seen. Their shell cordovan from Rocado is really nice too.

I’ve always found fresco (Minnis, if nothing else) to be quite resilient. Where did it give out on you?
