hell yeah, congrats to everyone there! will you be greenlighting the southwick orders to be cut at Hertling, or still holding out hope for a return to action over there in MA?
Still holding out for another week or two. Nothing is set in stone for Southwick, and I'd love to be part of the team that keeps that factory going and keeps those people employed. From what I've been told, there's a lot of work behind the scenes, and the local government of Haverhill MA is really fighting to keep it going. I should know more soon... but yes, I'd look to do any custom pant orders at Hertling and any suit/sportcoat orders at Hickey Freeman.

NEW WILHELM CHINOS & UPDATES

I'll post more on this tomorrow, but the new Wilhelms are online here.

Use the code wilhelm15 to save 15% on them. The stock in Cramerton & Jungle Poplin is super limited, so definitely grab it tonight if we have your size and you're interested in a pair. That Jungle Poplin ties back perfectly to the in-stock Doyle & Sinclair if you want to make a full 2-piece suit.

Also... big things happening at the factory. Here's the latest:

1) We're shipping Natural Sashiko Rivets and a few remaining Natural Sashiko jackets tomorrow

2) Black & Grey Sashiko was dropped off at the dye house today. Looking for that to finish dye on Friday and be ready to ship Mon-Tuesday

3) Navy Sashiko goes to dye on Friday and will be ready to ship end of next week

4) There's over 100 custom garments in work right now at our LA factory... which is BONKERS. Figure end of next week we'll be ready to offer Silk Matka and Albini Linen for a Summertime special order delivery.

5) The deadline for ordering shorts was pushed back until next Tuesday. Won't affect our delivery window for them.

Thanks!

Hi Eva, I feel like this has been addressed before, but how do you get the thigh measurement for the trousers? I find that a lot of makers measure differently or at different points on the thigh, making it difficult to compare measurements

Jungle Poplin Doyle landed and it's a beauty. Really nice weight and feel to it. Will see a lot of use as summer outerwear and a 3 season layering piece.

pretty fair to assume rivet shorts will take same size as rivet chinos? shorts are so hit or miss for me, kinda on the fence about it.

Sure thing, I flip up one leg and measure it as such....



@Epaulet Are the eternal corduroy parkas still on track to ship this week?
Oh my apologies... we only sold three of them and I thought that I reached out to everyone. I can still do them, but it will probably have to wait until later this month. Cutting and sewing them is really complicated, and it was impossible to do once the shutdown hit. The other customers opted to wait and get theirs to wear for the next season. I can also do the parka in Sashiko if you prefer.

I'm excited about having a pair of pants that won't be ruined when I inevitably spill coffee on them.
I like this plan!!

Yup, you should get your regular Rivet Chino size. I think that these would fit you great! Really nice for the humid weather too. We're going to have the preorder up until the middle of next week.

And... I hate to do this, but I literally don't have anyone to shoot the samples on. Jay is still on the East Coast and the model that I booked for this week wasn't able to make it. Since people are asking what a 8 inseam looks like... this is going to be the length on most people. This isn't my photo or our shorts, it's just to give you an idea of the general overall fit and length.

Yes! I have some extra stock coming through. We can take orders for the following:

Jackets: Size 38 through 44 in Navy, Black, or Grey
Rivets: Size 31 through 36 in Navy, Black or Grey

All of the Natural units are claimed, and all of the sizes outside of that range are claimed.

I'll have Grey and Black finished and ready to ship on Tuesday-Wednesday. Navy will be done and ready to ship Thursday-Friday. This stuff came out SO boss.

About 95% of the Natural units are shipped and en-route. I've got a few orders waiting for dyed pants or jackets, and a few international ones leaving next week.

Natural Sashiko Sinclair rough pics but man ups man left it in my garage without telling me. Glad I checked the tracking.

Looks so great! Really glad that it arrived. We ran the natural through an extra-hot wash to zap the shrinkage and it darkened the ecru tone a touch. I absolutely love how it came out.

Also, couple of other quick things to consider....

1) All of those LA factory special orders (denims, chambrays, ripstops) are all totally in work and we should start to get finished pieces in the next two weeks. This will be the fastest turnaround that we've ever had... and I hope that we can routinely get it down to under 6 weeks for subsequent rounds.

2) The Sashiko suiting may be the best thing that I've ever made. I need to get a model to shoot it on next week, but I really can't wait to show this stuff to you. I think it's really, really next level. I feel like the Navy Sinclair could be a perfect sample for everyone's wardrobe.

3) My factory needs some more work ASAP so I'm going to try and be creative. I'd like to do a new round of Rivet Chinos with some fabrics that I have on hand. The cloth is on the heavier side and not idea for the late July delivery date, but I could do them pretty inexpensively to drum up interest. I've got:

1) Khaki Cozy Brushed Twill from Brisbane Moss ($145)
2) An absolutely perfect cotton Cavalry Twill from Brisbane Moss ($145)
3) Forest Green Pima Cotton Corduroy (old school fabric). ($125)
4) Chocolate brown ripstop ($125)
5) Digital Camo Blue ($95)
6) Digital Camo Desert ($95)

How does this sound? Would be some of the lowest prices that we've been able to offer for this stuff. We'd also offer hems.. with or without cuffs.. for $15.

Got a bunch of new facemasks in and we restocked some from the last round. It's still 3 for $30 and USA shipping is included in the price. Stock is pretty tight... especially on Aubergine Blackwatch and the absolutely bonkers Egyptian Cotton (from their Top Shelf assortment).

Can they be done as Wilhelms also?
