Oh yes, the team from American Trench are our dudes... I highly recommend everything that they sell. @jah786 Their designer/founder is also on Styleforum.

They've got some great cold-weather gear this year, and Jacob puts a ton of work into his jacket development.
I notice they're branding their own lite Doyles (missing the back vent, buttons on the cuff, and side-entry pockets). What's the story there?

Also, sorry for being a pest, but I want to buy a steel moss sashiko sinclair :). I missed the deadline due to work, but now I am ready to spend money earned from said work.

I don't see what the problem is.
LOL, believe me I got some concerned DM's about that. It was looking like happy hour was arriving at an earlier hour every days. In reality, 2020 is the least drinking that I've done since I was maybe 17 years old. I enjoy cocktails, but I really only like drinking socially, so I'll stick to soft drinks if there's no karaoke or 1990s hip hop nights. Those IG Live Negronis would often be the only drink I'd have for a whole week.

Oh yeah, they made their own chore coat. He was having a hard time balancing the proportions, so I let them use the Doyle as an overall fit block. Their medium is equal to our 40, and should have the same overall dimensions. No one is going to call me the most creative designer out there, but I know what I'm doing with chest-shoulder-armhole balance. I was happy to lend some expertise if (1) we get more clothes made in the States and (2) dudes get a better fit on said clothes.

And thank you for the reminder, let's get that Doyle order setup now!

I really liked that rip stop one and considered it, but I think I'd get a lot more use out of a thicker wool one as it would be a better weight for an outdoorsy, working-around-the-yard, on a crisp fall day here in the Great Lakes. FWIW though, I saw some of the photos of the finished orange ripstop ones and they did look pretty awesome.
yeah! agreed. i liked the ripstop but i think the fuzzy orange texture that the banana appears to have would really suit my style more. two michigan menswear bros pining for faux hunting orange

Are the MTM Aero jackets a permanent item or seasonal? Just saw them now, they look special.

Hi Eva,

I've sent you a few emails trying to get my trousers ordered. If we can't get this order squared away by this Friday, I will kindly request a refund. This has been an absurd experience. I have lost all patience.

My email address is ***[email protected].

Best.

FACTORY PRODUCTION UPDATE

1) Thanks for the Rivet Chino orders! I've shipped about half of the orders that we've received. But I've got about 80 pieces waiting for waistband buttons to be installed. We ran short, but more buttons arrive this evening, so hoping to get all of the chinos tomorrow and ship everything out that's been ordered.

The incoming chinos will also have the preordered Crosscut Pique and Woolrich Tweed Rivets... so those are scheduled to ship out this week as well.

2) New Chainstitch shirts are coming end of this week too! About 150 units in total, and a nice mix of flannels, twills, and chambrays.

3) New Doyles are in work and scheduled to finish around the end of next week. This is going to include all of the Woolrich preorders and a few new stock variants:

* Hunter Green Wool Melton
* Yoshiwa Triple-Weave Chambray
* Reid & Taylor Steel & Indigo Boucle Tweed

Everything else is running! We should have our first delivery of Sashiko garments soon. Lockie sweaters are all en-route. Yesterday was a record for outgoing packages for us, and we'll keep pushing to get everything completed and shipped. Thanks!
Waiting on some fall sashiko.
