We've been working hard over here! Finally got our very first Overcoat shape with RTC, and it's being launched today. They're all set up to do it, and we'll have shipping on it by Thanksgiving.

I'm calling this new shape "Carter." It's similar to the Quincy (as modeled above by @suuteebird), but has a few refinements:

1) More armhole & shoulder space to fit better over a sportcoat
2) Fully lined body with three interior pockets
3) New options for self fabric undercollar or 12 colors of wool felt

Got this launching later today. We'll have about 16 fabrics to offer.

We got a little playful with this sample. For the undercollar, there's 9 colors of felt to choose from, or you can opt for self fabric (same as the top collar). We went hard with the Jolly Roger liner too....

(edit... not sure why the felt color image is so washed out in this post, but will be properly vibrant on our site)

You only have 8 listed on the drop-down in the store page.

I love that navy gonzo weave tweed. I already bought my one coat for the season though.

Thanks for the heads up I'll let @Epaulet know. To update it.

Yeah I want one for myself too but don't know if it'll get enough use in LA.

Thanks for the heads-up, just fixed it! Shopify has this annoying fabric of looking like it saved new variants... but not saving them.

Ming rocked some great mockups of 10 of the fabrics, we'll format them and post them up tomorrow for everyone to see.

This is really exciting new product for us, and big thanks to the two guys who ordered already! We originally designed the Quincy with Southwick... which is the rad single-breasted OC worn superbly by @suuteebird

Quite a few customers loved the jacket but (1) wanted the option for a full liner and (2) wanted more room in the shoulder and sleeve. We put all of those changes through and I'm really thrilled with the outcome!

The coats are gorgeous, but I cannot bring myself to order one until I receive my sportcoat that I ordered on 7/4. If Epaulet is able to figure this out they'll do great, b/c their stuff is terrific. Personally, I just don't trust the T'giving timeline.

No worries, I totally get you. If this season had gone as planned, I would have launched both this overcoat and our full Fall assortment last month, but I didn't want to amass more backorders without confidence that things were coming through. These overcoats are a tweaked version of our Southwick jacket (the Quincy) and the cutting is automated on them, so they can actually go through faster than a normal sportcoat or trouser.

I posted about this a few days back, but TLDR: the long wait time wasn't because our stuff was slowly in work. It wasn't in work at all. When RTC reopened at the end of the Summer, they were understaffed and also forced to shoulder a lot of Samuelsohn work that their Montreal facility couldn't do. The majority of the factory is now working on our stuff and we should have pretty much everything that we owe everyone within the next 3-4 weeks. There will probably be something here or there that falls thru the cracks, but we'll stay on top of it. And I'll apologize in advance for the obnoxious deluge of RTC product photos and videos that we'll be posting.

Speaking of photos.... may I present our very first RTC-made Field Jacket!!

This is so fly I almost can't stand it. Fabric is the "Olde English Tattersall" that's available in the Overcoat item. It was styled with leather knot buttons and elbow patches. It's absolutely magnificient.

I want to wait a week for us to get this first big delivery of backordered items, but then we'll update the custom Doyle & Field Jacket item with a bunch of available fabrics. This is just the beginning!

Will we get an elbow patch option for doyles? If that gonzo weave tweed were to show up as a doyle option, I doubt I would be able to resist.
