Photos. It's OK to take an off thread tangent for this.
wore my original british khaki rivets to dinner. thought "man, these are my favorite pair of pants by far". dripped some unknown substance on them. washed 'em. locked that stain in. right near crotch area. ahahah. bummer.
Well, I ordered the Western print belt because it's too good of a value to pass up. Searching through this thread, I see that most guys who have posted fit pics with this belt do not necessarily match the shoe color with it. Is that pretty normal for this sort of belt?
But of course:
And you can check it out here in all of it's Ebay glory. I believe that they have some other breeds available. It's just as insane in real life as it appears in photos. Chalk that one up to drunken shopping.
Oh man! Try bringing them by a dry cleaner, they can often get that stuff out or at least minimize it as much as possible.
Awesome, you're going to love it! I personally own that belt, and I'll generally pair it with any sort of brown shoes or boots. It doesn't have to be an exact match, but it looks good as a compliment to the shoes.
With the height of the summer, things are a little slower in the product launch department, but here's what we have in the pipeline for August:
Restocks of double monks and fitzgeralds, some new tough-ass Chromexcel styles, and belts are en-route as we speak. Lots of shell cordovan too. I have a delivery coming in today and another one scheduled for next week.
Gitman Vintage Fall One
We received three crazy/awesome shirts from Gitman Vintage - the pinup girl, a Peruvian heavy flannel with a Llama print, and a mighty fine multicolored pindot. We also have two very cute Gitman Vintage shirts for ladies.
Brown Chrome-Tanned Briefcase
You guys asked for it and we got it! That Fullum & Holt leather briefcase from Canada is now available in a gorgeous chrome-tanned thick brown cowhide. Similar to Chromexcel, just sourced from Canada rather than Horween.
We have the last two units of their hardcore "LRRP" dive watch going live next week.
Southwick for Michael Kuhle Delivery One (Deadstock)
This is going to be pretty boss. I picked up some gonzo deadstock fabrics from Southwick at the close of last season and made them up into a very limited run of jackets. Most stock will be 38R, 40R, and 42R. A few Shetland Tweeds and Harris Tweeds. There's some great stuff to choose from, and the price is about 20% less than it would typically be. There's about 20 jackets total in this early delivery.
Super-Thick Tweed Walt & Rudy Trousers
As promised, our limited-run Tweed Trousers will go live at the end of August. We've got a good smattering of Walts available and we'll take orders for both Rudies AND custom matching Southwick Jackets. We should have enough fabric left to do another normal Walt cutting after that, but if you're in the market for a jacket or a Rudy, you might want to grab that when the go live around 8/25.
That's about it for now. I'm sure that I'll be surprised by some other merchandise soon, and we'll throw it up as soon as it arrives.
Well I missed out on the belts entirely, as I wear a 32. PM me if you have a size 34 belt in natural, brown, or western chromexel or british tan that you are looking to move.
That is strong ebay drunk shopping, Mike.
On the upcoming deliveries:
Any EP shirts on the horizon? Need a fix.
i remember this question being asked but dont recall if an answer was given: Are the french blue duck canvas rivets darker than the french blue 7 oz canvas, the way they appear to be when pictured on the website?
Just received a nice pair of Slim Walt in wool - but do I need to wash them before I get them hemmed?
Thank you sir! And no, you'll want to only dry clean the wool trousers.
They're more similar in tone than the online photos make them. Better to compare the outdoor fit pics. The 10oz is a bit paler than the 7oz, but they're pretty close.
Oh yes. I also bought a deadstock bottle of Gucci Envy (it's been discontinued for a while) once for like $150 while very drunk. I put it on and smell like a living embodiment of 2002. Drunk shopping and ebay are a dangerous mix.
Those are some of my favorite pants of all time. If you all missed that fabric the first time around, do not miss it this time.
Matt mentioned last week that you guys would be getting a restock of the regiment twill trousers that you guys sell. Will this delivery be coming in any time this week?
Doctor, I need the ordering page, stat!
Mike - Are these the charcoal herringbone rivets you had at the end of 2010? These were the first rivets I tried to order, but my size was sold out. I'll definitely need to get in on these this time. The wool rivets also sound like they are a must for fall. Any swatches available?
