Those persimmon tweed trousers are absolutely gorgeous!



We just got home from about 12 days in Florida last night and I'm anxiously awaiting the backlog of mail to get delivered later today so I can get my hands on these new trousers. Very excited!
Awesome, let me know what you think!

PENDLETON NAVY MID-CENTURY 9OZ WOOL

(April 5th: we have a discount code on this, but it's only good until Saturday April 6th. Use code wool15 at checkout for 15% off custom garments in this cloth)
Hey guys!

My latest fabric listing is a very cool solid wool gabardine. I bought a large roll of this fabric locally, so it's a limited deadstock find. It was made by Pendleton at their mill in Oregon, and was woven in the early 2010s.

It's a great navy color and it's a piece of American history, but I'd say the thing that really stands out is the weight and vibe. It's the kind of thing that you only feel in a vintage shop these days.

I was struggling to find a photo to illustrate this... so bear with me on this one from Get Smart...

Okay, so that is NOT this Pendleton fabric. It's not even the color, as our Pendleton fabric is a true dark navy.

But imagine how that suit feels. It's a thicker cloth and a different drape than the more conventional Vitale Barberis-esque suiting that we see these days. It has more weight and presence. If you've gone shopping for vintage tailoring from the 50's and 60's, then you know what I mean. Many of those pieces were made with USA-woven wool, which is very different from the modern European goods of today.

This particular cloth is from the early 2010s, but the style, feel, and weight are the same. Pendleton is one of the last remaining woolen mills in this entire country, and this particular fabric is discontinued.

It's a great basic navy, with a cool story, a unique feel and drape, and a very fair price. If you're in the market for some navy pieces, then this is an excellent opportunity! You can order it in three different categories:

CUSTOM TROUSERS: From $345

CUSTOM SUITS AND SPORTCOATS: From $995

CUSTOM DOYLE CHORE COATS, TEBA JACKETS, & FIELD JACKETS: From $500

I bought a pair of Hertling "Super Luxe" "Oatmeal Hopsack Linen-Cotton" Walts back in 2019, but only wore them twice that year. Then covid hit and i basically haven't had to wear anything nice since.

I had a reason to wear something nice, so I put these pants on the other day and my wife asked if I knew there was a tear in the seam of the butt. I took them off, and I'm not quite sure what to make of this. They were only worn twice, so I'm guessing they came like this. Is this just a loose seam, or what's going on here? When I'm wearing them, it looks like there's a dark tear in the asscrack
I've worn these 4 times now, and they need to go back to a tailor for the 4th time. This time it's the center rear seam again, and even the seams right above the 2 rear pockets. Is it just the fabric? Do I need to go to a better tailor? At this point i've spent well over 100 bucks fixing these pants

Did anyone else get the "Oatmeal Hopsack Linen-cotton" pants?


Edit: I took them to a shop on the UWS called "Master Tailor," and they said it would be $140 to fix the 4 spots coming undone, but that the fabric is so delicate that it would probably just rip again, so they said they didn't recommend fixing. Damn

Ah I’m sorry to see that.. looks like it was a 2019 Hertling fabric, wish I could get more info on it from them.

Hertling is under some weird new management. I’m honestly not sure who’s in charge of the brand these days.

Is there an update on the stitchwork sashiko Rivets?
Oh they’re all totally finished with sewing, we just had to wait for the matching Kamigatas before dyeing it.

Current schedule: drop off all pieces to dye on Thursday 4/11, plan to ship all dyed preorders for both pieces early the following week

Hi Eva, did you post about the Corso jackets? I'm super curious the thought process behind that.

Oh yes, will do! That's been selling really well too... it's a exciting new project for us. I'll have it open for another week or so.

Oh and apologies for anyone waiting on replies, my partner and I headed out of town for the total eclipse. I'm headed back tomorrow (Wednesday) morning.

It was a bit crazy to plan as we first booked in two different places in Texas.. and then eventually changed to St. Louis, and drove into Illinois. But really worth it! I hope that some of you guys were able to the totality.

This was her shot with a proper camera and solar filter...

And I got this with an Iphone. You can see Venus at the 5 o'clock position.

You can get bagels and bialys from Kossar's on goldbelly.com. I don't know how well they would do getting shipped to LA, but I had some sent to my brother and sister in VA and they both felt it wasn't much different than getting it in-person.

Oh wow, that is a great tip! My neighborhood bagel situtation is bad even by greater Los Angeles standards, so this is really valuable 😁

Hey everyone!

I just received our first two makeups in this amazing tweed. Pictured are the Nuovo sportcoat with a custom 4.5" peak lapel and the Field Jacket.

We have just 10 yards remaining.. enough for about 4 pieces in total. Here's the links to check it out and order online

Custom Sportcoats and Suits in 18oz Magee Herringbone

Custom Doyles, Tebas, and Field Jackets in 18oz Magee Herringbone

Custom Trousers in 18oz Magee Herringbone

And here's the spiel...

Woven in Ireland by Magee 1866, this is one of the most incredible tweeds that I've ever seen!

The base tones are a mixture of chestnut and burnt orange - and multicolored flecks of red, yellow, green, and orange are sprinkled throughout the weave. It's woven by hand and features an intricate medium-scale herringbone.

This 100% wool weighs in at 18oz - the same weight as Harris Tweed. It's extremely thick and warm. Your custom garments will have to the strength to last generations. This promotional pricing is approximately 40% off our MSRP, so don't miss out on this incredible fabric.
