    Thanks dude! It's a phenomenal piece and marries two of my favorite things, Italian and Trad American styling. This is the OTR fit of a 36. Works perfectly for me. The only thing i did was take the flaps off the pockets!

    Question for you guys. I picked up the Loro Piana Navy Windowpane jacket from the sale. I see that there is one pair of trousers left in the same material, thought several sizes too large for me (I usually take a 30 and these are 33's). Do you suppose a competent tailor would be able to modify them to fit me?

    ^Just taking a guess, but once you start altering a piece too much you run into trouble with where fixed features of the item (e.g., pockets) are going to end up. Fore example, if you take in the waist enough, the two back pockets will end up too close to each other I think. I don't know what the outer limits are on this, but definitely something to consider carefully.

    Hey Mike, are any more items going to be trickling on to the new site today? I just want to know how much work I can get in between hitting refresh.

    How similar is the pattern to the Marcello check? Tried to buy that in the sale (not sure if I got it or not), and wondering if this Daltrey is too much of the same thing.

    Thanks for this, it didn't even occur to me. Looking at the measurement table, there would be a significant amount of cloth taken in. Damn, so much for that idea.

    Any chance the Grey Button Down flannels will be restocked?

    Just got my suede Eisenhower home from the post office - phenomenal piece, pretty much exactly what I've been looking for in my search for a suede jacket over the past few years. Fit is basically spot-on (sleeves could be shortened an inch but I don't think I'll bother) and I would have to say it is one of the more beautiful garments I own. Thanks Mike & Adele! :D

    Sweet Jesus, somebody grab that star corduroy already. I got it from the old site for a discount, and I'm extremely happy with it, but for 50 bucks it's a no-brainer. I almost want to get another one.

    Thinking about the stars shirt...EP's medium shirts are a little big for me - most of mine are smalls - but it might be worth it with some alterations.

    So the GF dragged me to the mall over the weekend and at some point I wandered off and went to Nordstroms. They had the 1000 mile boots and I was really impressed that they were not that bulky. They seemed noticeably more elegant than Alden's tend to. It made me think that I may be quite happy with the shell version, except, it like so many other cordovan boots comes in a leather sole. So I know that cordovan is a very elegant material but being that one of its greatest strengths is its ability to handle harsh weather, why are not more shell boots available in a water resistant sole like dainite?

    They're pretty dissimilar in real life. The Marcello is much lighter weight and much brighter overall. I'd say that if you're looking for an awesome guncheck jacket for Fall-Spring, the Daltrey definitely fits the bill!

    Hey guys! Thanks again for all of the orders, we're hard at work today! I've got an avalanche of PM's at the moment (about 85 in the past day and a half), so it will take me a bit to get back to everyone, but I'll do my best to answer everything as quickly as possible. In the meantime, if you have any really urgent questions - especially on a time-sensitive sale item - calling one of our shops during opening hours is probably your best bet.
    Thanks for the heads-up! We realized what went wrong here. When creating multi-size items, they get formatted incorrectly if you only specify one size available. We did it in this case because the item was new and the only units were large. In the future, we just need to create a another size and zero out the stock, and that will prevent that scenario. In case something else slips through, please know that the size shown in that shadowed mouse rollover is the size of the item.
    This jacket is gorgeous in person, and with the color scheme it's quite wearable. I have to say Frank, I think that this guy is really your style :thumbs-up:
    Haha sure, I can certainly see a "Stanley" in our future!
    Generally the guideline is to take in a maximum of 2" for standard tailoring - which is just taking in the trouser in the back seam. After that, the proportions of the trousers and where it sits on your body is going to get crazy. So you'll need to have the trousers recut. A 3" recut should definitely be possible for a good tailor. It's generally a lot more expensive than just taking it in, so depending on where you are, you might have a charge of $60 - $100. But if its a good tailor who's familiar with mens clothing, then it should definitely be possible. Taking in 3" is a lot, but it's not extreme. You'd just have to factor in the time and cost of doing that.
    Thank you so much - I'm thrilled that you're so pleased with the jacket! We're definitely going to bring in more of those for Spring. I'm really happy with how they came out. Back in the day when I bought for Saks, I would always drool at the calfskin and suede jackets that we would stock from the likes of Zegna. The fit was always awful, but the leather was great, and the construction was ace. That's what I was going for on the Eisenhower/Mulberry pieces - that old-school luxe quality but with a sharp, updated fit. I think that they nailed it.
    Big note on the Shell 1000 Miles: they're unlined. Despite what other people might say about them, I'd officially caution anyone against wearing them heavily in really harsh weather. Shell is certainly a tough material, but it's expensive, and these aren't super-rugged, despite appearances.

    Ordered the slate pea coat today, hope it fits. Measurements put me between L and XL so figured I'd give the XL a try at least.

    mike, can you compare the N3-B parka and the men's monte carlo jacket? i know the parka has a hood but other than that.

    also can you talk about sizing. i am between a small and a medium in your shirts.

    i tried the parka on in store and 36 was a hair too tight and 38 fit about right for me.

    thanks in advance.

    Mike, some site feedback:

    -Available sizes always display on top of the products for me using IE 8.6001 with the product shaded, whereas with chrome I only see them when hovering over the product with the mouse(which I presume is the desired effect)

    -Yesterday I experience a bug where product photos from one item got mixed up with product titles from other items
