Any chance of a getting 46 done up if I hop on the Balmacaan order?
Will do!Hi Paul just come across this thread for the Balmacaan coat which I am interested in so if there is a pre order list would you put my name down to receive further information please
Will you be making the community version in several fabrics or just the one? (Sorry haven't been following the discussion as closely as I should've)We've been steered by the community here towards herringbones, with outside interest too in barleycorns (which we used last year for the balmacaan) or jumbo herringbones. Some folks have also suggest plain weaves (like basketweaves) or even checks.
Duly noted! Thank you.Will you be making the community version in several fabrics or just the one? (Sorry haven't been following the discussion as closely as I should've)
Voting for barleycorn anyway or a nice speckled donegal tweed of some sort.
No point in sitting on the sidelines. I'm definitely interested in this project as well, so far all the points have hit perfectly for me. Excited for the longer length as a taller fellow.Duly noted! Thank you.
The plan is a single colour. I had not until now considered more than one. It is not out of the question, however, but really depends in the swell of interest in the project (which is hard to measure) and the likely number of pre-orders. The more interest there seems to be, the more viable two colours rather than one will be.
There is certainly chance of a second colour IF there is a second colour that people think worthwhile.Hi Paul, is there anyway multiple fabric options would be made available for this SF special order?
Understood and thanks for the reply! I only ask as I would likely not go for a green, if that’s where the crowd goes, but would go for the previously mentioned grey/charcoals. It does seem like there is a fair amount of interest in both some form of grey and a green/brown, but I definitely understand the sentiment of wanting to limit this collaboration to singular style/color.There is certainly chance of a second colour IF there is a second colour that people think worthwhile.
I err against doing it for the sake of it, however. My ambition with this coat as with anything we make — if not more so! — is to make something that stands on its own merits, as an outstanding coat, which generates marvel and delight irrespective of being limited in number or a part of a Styleforum collaboration.
I often try to stifle the curiosity or temptation of more colours for the sake of more colours, as often the first idea is best!
