    ^You can get MOP buttons on whichever shirt you want, as long as they are still available. I was just stating which shirt I was thinking of getting MOP buttons on.

    who8- no problem!

    Today's update: Nathan is off to see his supplier tomorrow, so I should have chambray photos up tomorrow or Wednesday. Here is the list I sent him so he could check on availability: Most requested: Dark Indigo Super dark indigo (Indigo on black?) Black Red Dark grey Also requested: Salt and pepper chambray options? Blue-green White Requested by one person: Light or medium indigo Green Brown Super black Any colors with unbleached wefts? Almost all of the chambrays are coming from Japan. He said that the only color that is not likely to be available is brown. He might have to order the dark indigo because apparently they are hard to find. Here is a teaser pic (not the best quality) of the blue-green, which is on black, not white, weft, along with a grey on white: [​IMG] I will have the measurement instructions up tomorrow. I've been working on a diagram for all of the measurements with Nathan just to make the process that much easier and streamlined. Stay tuned!

    Another sneak peek. This is a light blue chambray USN workshirt that Nathan recently made. The Navyman will be just like this, but with selvage gussets, a collar tab/neck strap, and the curved cuffs. I'm planning on putting the placket and curve of the Navyman cuff on the inside of the sleeve unless I hear back from you all otherwise. [​IMG]

    That blue-green is beautiful, and the Navy Man is better than I imagined

    Can the super dark indigo be indigo warp and weft rather than indigo and black? What is the dark indigo?

    Sorry zissou, money's a little tight right now and neither option is exactly what I voted for, so I don't feel compelled to swing it. Maybe I'll change my mind if I love one of the colors.

    I'm sure they'll be great, can't wait to see fits!

    I am still trying to pull this one off. how long til we need to confirm? I just picked up the MFSC chambray shirt and I don't know if I can justify to the old lady another $200 dollar shirt. The shirts look great though.

    I'll probably have the measurement guide up tomorrow, and the chambray colors up on Wednesday, so I'll likely start taking orders on Saturday. There will probably be about a two week period where I can take orders, but that depends more on Nathan. The first guys to order are the most likely to get the color they want, although it looks like there is pletny of most of the popular colors. I'll know for sure tomorrow. I figured there would be a decent number of guys who voted in the design poll who would wind up not ordering simply because the design they wanted wasn't selected. So, it's not a problem!

    What's the expected turnaround?


    Edit - never mind, went back and re-read the first post (funny how that helps). About 6-8 weeks?

    Heard back from Nathan. He said that it takes him one week to make 10 shirts from start to finish. That doesn't include picking up the chambrays from his supplier and shipping the finished shirts to me. I'll turn them around in a day and send them out to each of you Priority. Nathan also said he'd send the finished shirts to me in batches of ten. Since he isn't really taking orders at the moment, there isn't anyone ahead of us. SO, if you are one of the first ten guys to order a shirt, it's pretty reasonable to say you'd get your shirt about two, maybe two and a half, weeks after I send the first order of 10 shirts to Nathan. How does that sound?

    I edited the first post. It will take about 2-2.5 weeks turnaround for each batch of 10 shirts. the second and third batches might take longer just because they weren't the first batch.
