Hmm yeah I'd do that fabric as a Doyle if I had to choose. It's almost an overcoat weight, so the Sinclair might be thicker than you'd want a sportcoat to be. But that's up to your preference, some guys do really like the Sinclair in heavier weights.

If you'd just like a pearl grey wool Sinclair, then I'm positive that I can source a nice Italian wool flannel. Same weight that we would use for trousers. Would that interest you?
Thanks Eva - that's super helpful. I am actually looking for something at least mid-weight (only two seasons here in Beijing, mad-hot and mad-cold, and this is for the latter ...) so just knowing that I am not being totally crazy ordering this as a Sinclair is already very useful!

HMU when we offer the next Sashiko preorder run. I can run individual Sashiko EZ pants for you at a premium. It will cost extra to cut and sew them, but will still be reasonable if we can just throw it in to the dye bath with the Rivets and Such. Figure around $265 a unit.
Hi, this is me HMU. I sent email, can PM, checking on pricing for the EZ's. Thanks.

I asked on the other thread but can we get the Wilhelms on this order?

Oh yes, it will be great for that! This fabric is definitely up to the mad cold challenge.

Gotcha covered! Yes we can do them for $265 a unit, which will include the belt. I'd reuse the exact same pattern as our previous runs in 2017 and 2018. I don't have any measurements, so this offer is best for someone who already owns an EZ pant from that time and is looking to add another pair or two.

One change that I will make... the old EZ pants had a regular split rear seam (like a dress pant). I'll update that to a flat-felled rear seam (like a jean) to make it stronger. It's way more secure this way, and its how I make the current Sashiko rivets.

Nice. So in order to avoid confusion, how should I place this order so you all don't end up producing a 38 Rivet vs. a 38 EZ pant?

I'll do "secret" items later today which will allow everyone here to order EZ Pants, Kamigatas, and Field Jackets in any of the colors. That way you'll get a proper confirmation for the right item.

This is going to be awesome!

Just wanted to make sure size charts will be available for secret items? If not, do you have the measurements for Kamigatas?

Yup! Size charts will be available for everything but the EZ Pants

Kamigata is basically in line with the Doyle. Just order the size that you typically wear and it's going to work.

The Deans Nuts Field Jacket is exactly the same as the Doyle in sizing, it just has a different 4-pocket design across the front.

The only item that I don't have measurements for is the Sashiko EZ pant, so I'd really advise (1) order it if you owned and loved one in the past or (2) size up one if you're new to this shape.

Sweet thanks! I've never actually owned a doyle but have a sashiko parka. Based on the fact that it's a slightly stretchy fabric and experience with my size 40 parka, I'd probably go a bit tighter at 38 for a kamigata. Only real concerns are to make sure the shoulders and chest fall in the right range. I'd get the rest tailored anyway as I generally prefer an extremely trim look that hugs the body.

Oh well, the linen jacket that's en route to you will be a good guide. I'd say to get the same size in the Kamigata as you'd take in the linen piece. I wouldn't advise sizing down for it.

Quick heads up guys... I'm going to finalize the orders for these Jeweltone Hopsack and quickstrike fabrics tomorrow.

Here's the link and a video for everything below is below. Couple of quick notes:

1) REDA hopsack is our best selling hopsack of all time. It's 100% wool and wearable four season. It's a nice dressy option for these casual jackets because it has more body and weight than the usual suiting wool. It breathes really nicely.

2) I've never seen these colors before. They are absolutely stunning. Typically you'd need to order a ton of yardarge to have a custom color like this, but I'm able to get a limited amount from a local dealer.

3) If anyone really wants a more formal piece with these fabrics (Walt, Rudy, Nuovo, a whole suit), then send me a PM. I can definitely work that out with either Hertling or Rochester Tailoring

4) The quickstrike fabrics are amazing! That double-faced bonded wool is totally insane and a great option for a heavier weight piece. Piacenza cashmere is bonkers as you'd imagine.

Will this include the $75 upcharge for length alterations?

Hey guys, dunno if it's quite kosher but if you're going to be firing off purchases I have some store credit for sale at a slight discount. Link is in my signature, really doing me a solid as I haven't been able to work this year and can't have as much money tied up in jawnz as I'd normally like.
Last bump for this, it's in $270 chunks so kind of perfect for those sinclairs/Doyles/special orders
