    We need more pre-orders for high-demand items. They come once a year, some sizes sell in minutes, and the F5 lottery sucks.

    Pretty glad I got the spring gun check so I can tell myself to just sit this one out today.

    Not to open to a can of worms here because it has absolutely no bearing on S&M, but I wonder if S&M is using the same factories as Howard Yount. The styles and quality offered at the incredible price point reminds me of the once favored shop until their customer service went down the drain.

    Nope. Not the same at all. We manufacture in China. We develop all sizing and styles in house and don't use any factory patterns.

    I'd love this as well. Less pressure to be near the computer. Less stress, less money, more clothes.

    Thanks for the reply! I meant manufacturer (wrong terminology) rather than simply using a factory for private labeling. It's very clear your offers are designed in-house.

    I don't think HY produced anything in China. I think most of it was USA and Italy?

    I didn't know that. Thanks. Then it is possible. Though the current factory we use, never exported to North America before us. Prior it was only Europe and Australia. So most probably not the current factory for sure.

    Well, I think it's a definite compliment. HY stuff was very well made; materials, design and construction were great. I'm a proud owner of bunch of their stuff (and yours, of course!)

    Man screw you guys. I was in store trying on all the over coats. I settled on the Navy DB in 38S. Mike, goes to the warehouse to get it. IT"S SOLD OUT!!!!

    Whoever bought the DB polo coat in navy that is a 38S, if you return it let me know!

    Do not sleep on these things.

    Also, Rick mentioned to me what is coming for Fall of next year. We're in for treats

    That VBC check that just went up is great. Feels like a flannel but more “airy”, lofty, then a tighter woven typical flannel. I don’t know, just believe me. It’s really nice.

    If you need staple flannel trousers, stay tuned! Few more that are absolutely great! Incoming. Not spoiling this one....

    Spent too much time yaking with Mike and Rick for many pics. Walked out with 3 trousers, one of which was just in, only teaser I can give at this point.
