Hey everyone.. hope that you guys are well. My apologies for being MIA this week, we've been focusing on getting caught up with outstanding orders and production.



Glad that they arrived safely! I'm really so thrilled about how those sweaters turned out. Thank you to everyone who ordered one!



Ah, I'm sorry.. I think that's going to get pushed out until after the holidays. At this point, I'm really trying to wrap up all of the existing MTO jackets and finish our Sashiko production. But it's absolutely realistic to do a really killer round of custom fabrics in January.



It looks really awesome.. thank you for posting the photos! Drop me a PM if you're still finding the jacket to be too tight and we can get it switched out for one of the current stock Doyles. The jackets tend to run a little bit bigger when they're done in thicker tweeds, but I definitely want you to get something that works.



Just got your chinos in a few days ago! We'll look to ship them this week. And the Sashiko Mac will be our first new project in January. I want to deliver all of the existing Sashiko preorders first, so we'll be pushing hard with that over the next few weeks.



So great... thank you so much for picking it up and posting the photo!
I haven't received any confirmation regarding change of my shipping address for the Sashiko doyle order. Sent a follow up email few days ago, yet still no confirmation.

Hi @Epaulet just going to ping you again since you responded to everyone else. Are the chestnut corduroy parkas actually going to happen? It's almost been a year now... Sent an email for a refund as I'm thinking the answer is no.

Hi @Epaulet - time for another monthly check in on those eternal chestnut corduroy parkas. Any status update?
i dunno man, i think these are a myth at this point almost 12 months later. We should probably start asking for a refund

I'm sorry guys, these parkas are all on the cutting table, but our contractor for flat felled seams is just impossible right now. They've had rolling shutdowns, and I just can't get them to take these parkas and finish them, at least at the moment. Luckily they're the only garments with this situation, and I do have other specials and customs coming through.

We only sold three parkas, so I'll be in touch with each of you personally. I'll offer a refund or you can take a credit with extra value in it. I don't see these getting finished before the end of January.

Got this pic from our friend Dr. Bon Ku. He's an ER Physician in Philly, and he's been volunteering for drive by COVID-19 screenings. And wearing some Wilhelm jeans for the task!

But fits aside, I know that quite a few of you guys are health care professionals, and really... we're all incredibly grateful for your work and effort these days. You guys are the true heroes of this time!

Hey guys, something else that's special! We're officially cleared to offer the "Trophy Collar" with Individualized shirts. This is typically only sold in Japan, and we've done only a handful in the past.. largely to clients who place orders in person.

I've added it to all of the online custom shirt items, and it's an especially rad option for our new 3 Oxford shirts for $369 promotion, which ends tomorrow.

The Trophy collar is new to us, but it's actually one of the older shapes in their archive. It's essentially a reproduction of the full roll buttondowns popularized by Polo Ralph Lauren in the 1970s. It's taller, longer, and rolls more dramatically then the buttondown that we've offered historically. It's more classic YSL and less Brooks Brothers. And it's a shape that you see coming out of Italian custom shirtmakers all of the time these days.

It's still very wearable, and it won't make you look like a pimp or a regular visitor to the Playboy mansion. It's just a bit more presence and swagger, and a great way to order some oxford shirts that look subtly distinct from all of the other oxford shirts.

LMAO, well I think with your new 2020 hairstyle, you can basically look like a pimp regardless of your shirt collar.

Will it make me look like an occasional visitor to the mansion?
Perhaps some kind of professional contractor. Like the city of LA sent you audit their local tax filings. And you decided to just go big with your oxford shirt collar.

Yeah, it's definitely a bummer.. I'm really sorry. Production is a mess like I've never seen before, and anything small and complex is just getting pushed off by all of our local contractors. They're sitting in a pile right now, at least 50% finished, but I don't have a way to finish them at the moment. Our more typical designs like Doyles and Sinclairs can be done entirely in-house, so they're slow, but not stalled.

@Epaulet send a dm regarding my orders. Would like an update please.
Gotcha will do!

I know production is jacked, but any guesses as to when the t-shirts or crewneck sweatshirts you mentioned a while back are gonna be ready? I really love the color on the indigo hoodies, but I have a bizarrely strong hatred for putting a hoodie on under a jacket.

As you should. Nothing bizarre about it.
