    Hey everyone, We're thrilled to announce a new collaborative shirt! This one is a slim flannel that's perfect for Fall. We're working to have this finished by the Sept 18th Styleforum party. This fabric is brand new, and should arrive in the States next week. It's beautiful in person - with a soft hand and really vibrant colors. I shudder to think about how good the shirts will be. Seriously. Due to time constraints, we're keeping things simpler this time. The shirt shape is fixed as a point-collar with trocas buttons. We're asking the SF community to vote for their top three colors - and we'll put those into production. Here are the details: Fabric A middle-weight 100% cotton brushed flannel in a range of multicolor gingham colorways. It comes from Portugal and has a ridiculously nice hand. It will make a really unique shirt - a slim flannel that works great as a casual piece but it still light enough to layer under a sweater or blazer. Shape I'm going to use a new pattern that has a slim point collar and left chest pocket. The rest of the specs (body, sleeves, darts, etc) will be our usual Epaulet fit. So if you already own an Epaulet shirt, you can expect this one to fit identically. Buttons The buttons will be our new "Copper Smoke" trocas shell. They'll have ass-kicking contrast with the fabric. You can see how they look on our Red Gingham Shirt The schedule will work like this: 1. From August 3rd to August 9th, Styleforum members can vote on their favorite color. 2.We'll choose the top three colors and put 20 units of each into production. The total shirt run will be 60 units. 3. The shirts will take about 3-4 weeks for production. We're going to try like hell to get them finished for our Sept 18th Styleforum party. We'll keep you updated on the status after they go into production. Onto the colors. Please choose your THREE favorite colors in the poll.

    It HAS to be red or orange for a fall flannel. Purple won't work! Fabrics look rad though.

    Oh, and an informal question: would you like the fabric on the pocket to be bias cut? So that it looks like this:

    Yeah, I'm definitely loving the purple too.

    Mike - Question: Are you going to offer these shirts online or are party goers getting first dibs. I'll be sad if I can't make it up to NY AND miss out on the purple flannel. [​IMG]
