Things were a little crazy with all of the Hertling shipping yesterday, but I managed to get some snapshots before we packed these trousers. Pics are below, and all of these should be in their customer's hands in the next few days.

Speaking of Hertling, I'm going to launch a new promotion with them on Saturday morning. I know that the delivery windows were insane for this batch, but they're back up to full staff and ready for new work. We'll start taking orders on Saturday and shut down the promo on Tuesday. They'll start cutting things by the end of next week, and shipment from Hertling is guaranteed before Thanksgiving. Three notes on this:

1) Anyone who's only getting their pre-COVID pants now will be offered a 15% discount on these goods
2) The prices on these will be cheaper than previous rounds to begin with
3) To keep things easy and fast, we're going to streamline the options. We'll only offer Walt, Rudy, and Taylor. All hems are unfinished, and all pants will be done with belt loops (no side tabs). This should keep things moving but still offer what most customers are looking for.

Real quick.... new Rivets are online and they are freaking amazing. Especially the Calvary Twill... we only have 8 units of open stock and I can't say enough good things about that.

Here's the link. Use code rivet15 to get 15% off. I'll have this emailed out in the newsletter in a few hours.

Any chance of some Cavalry twill?

I'm not totally sure, but I'll have all of the swatches in hand late tomorrow. Will check back and let you guys know. We're only working with fabric that's on hand and ready to cut next Friday.

One of the things I most wanted for fall was navy Cramerton Rivets, so I picked them up as soon as I saw the email yesterday. Thanks, Eva!

Any chance they're as soft as the recent mushroom ones? That colorway seemed to have a different hand than my other Cramerton rivets. Any chance for navy Cramerton wilhelms (or I forget the new name) so that my tailor can cut them into shorts?

The shoe/boot project a couple pages back looks interesting too. I'll be keeping an eye out.

Hertling trousers look great. Does anyone size up for their cotton pants? I am a consistent 32 Rudy fit but my one pair of cotton twills fits tighter than my ~10 wool pants. Could be that I wash the cotton ones at home but dry clean the wool pants.

@Epaulet
Can the corduroys be washed at home or are they dry clean only?

also any new Wilhelms on the way?

I would still like to see the videos of the other RTC suiting fabric categories when you have a chance. Thank you.

Is the British Khaki cotton twill the same as the ones offered back in Jan? (looks like number is different, but don't know if they keep the same numbering) Also, what is the weight of the cotton twills?

@plato fantastic, thank you so much! They're not quite as soft as the mushroom ones... that particular fabric had a slightly brushed hand, so it was kind of special that way. I'd say that the feeling is closest to the gunmetal colorway when its "raw." It should soften nicely with a few washes.

That is a thing with Cramerton though... even with the same weight and type of yarn, the exact hand of the fabric seems to vary with color dyes. It's a great navy tone though.. I think that you're really going to dig it!

Oh and thanks.. our boot samples are in work right now with Gaziano & Girling, hoping to have that live right in early November.

Thank you!

1) I wouldn't necessarily advise sizing up, but it sounds like you might be on the edge for size 32. It probably won't hurt to size up to 33's for the cotton and corduroy twills listed here.

In many cases, it's not so much that the cotton shrinks, but more that the wools stretch out with use and wear.

2) All of the cotton twills and corduroys can be machine washed. I'd say cold water and hang dry. And run them through a wash before hemming.

3) New Wilhelms landing in about 2-3 weeks. That will include the tweed and crosscut pique preorders too. We'll definitely offer the double faced Yoshiwa Twill and Navy Cramerton that we're showing right now in the Rivet Chinos.

The Taylor fits similar to the Rudy, right? I may order a few Hertling pair...
The Taylor has a single pleat and a significantly higher rise than the Rudy, but the leg sizing is equally generous. So while it's a different fit, pretty much everyone who wears the Rudy will also comfortably wear the Taylor in the same size. It's a great shape and has been really popular over these past few years.

I would still like to see the videos of the other RTC suiting fabric categories when you have a chance. Thank you.
Absolutely! I've actually got the 4-Season wools video shot, just need to find some time to edit it this weekend.

And curious... how do you guys like the new video format with titles added for each fabric? Trying to up the content quality. I think that my new camera is doing a better job for exposure and white balance than before.

I believe that it's the same British Khaki as before. The weight is around 8 or 9oz.

I don't know if you do corduroys, but those are totally ideal for a SoCal winter... I think that you'd get a ton of wear out of them. That Rusty Orange color is so killer too!

Man that came out so boss! Thanks as always for posting the pics!

HERTLING INSTAGRAM LIVE ON MONDAY

Just a heads up, I'll do a live broadcast with Justin Christensen of Hertling on Monday. He's going to run through the available fabrics and give some additional comments on them -- and we'll take any questions or comments that you guys have.

After all of the COVID delays in 2020, we're going to be really proactive with production on this batch. He's committed to weekly check-ins on the process and starting the cutting the end of next week. Every unit will ship from Hertling to our LA studio by Thanksgiving, and and hopefully we'll even get some or most of the units to finish before that. Making all of the shapes with belt loops and unfinished inseams will really help things to run more quickly.
