    Pants look great, shirt horrendous. But at least your team hasn't been forced to pay an entire year's payroll to victims of the Madoff scheme...cause they knew it was a scheme. :/

    Quote: They probably got out just in time. 2nd highest payroll in baseball -- clearly the money is coming from somewhere.

    Excited for the oxford cloth chinos!

    Mike, I believe you mentioned some time ago that you had a pale pink dress shirt in the works. Any word on that?

    Someone mentioned earlier that they shrink their shirts in the dryer. I fit into a medium pretty snugly (not tight, but I def wouldn't dry it for fear of any shrinkage), you think I could do that with a Large? I'm not so worried about neck size as I'd purely wear as a casual shirt.

    Thinking about picking up a pair of the duck canvas. Any opinion on which would be more versatile between the caramel and the desert?

    Thanks

    After shrinking I estimate that the large shirt has about a 15.5 neck size. Perhaps just slightly bigger. Then body comes in a bit as well. The sleeves shrink as well, but sleeves are long on Epaulet shirts, so you wouldn't have to worry about them. I have long arms and it isn't a problem for me. It is easy enough to have sleeves shortened.

    These look good. Thanks for posting.

    I'm a little upset that the fabric on these was limited. I'm normally a 34 Rudy, but I have been wondering if it might be possible to get the racing green in a 36 Walt (34 is sold out) and then try to doctor them to fit. But that might be more tailoring than even a strong pair of pants can stand. Anyone else ever try to do something similar?

    both are really versatile and can be worn with just about anything. I'm partial to the Caramel color, I think it's a great substitute for a standard khaki and it fits perfectly into my wardrobe.

    I like the caramel as well. I don't pull green off very well, especially paler green, While the Desert isn't exactly green, its brown, its definitely a brown with pale green undertones. i also love the Caramel for its Carhart character, its a very Carhart brown color.

    Great new pics on your blog Mike. The photos of Rome and of KG in his striped trousers are fantastic.
