@spiermackay

Can we add a 3r2 option for regular sport coats in the MTO/Custom section? I am small framed and the 4" lapels are huge on me so I avoid the Neo cuts.
Any 2 button jacket you can ask to be 3 roll 2 in the notes.

Why is a size 54 available as MTO but if you go under custom there's no size 54? If I list I want a size 54 in the order comments can I get it?

The belt loop on the high rise extended waistband trousers needs to move closer to the button like they used to be. I noticed on my F/W cords and Fresco that the loop is now in an awkward placement. Not sure if that’s a new intentional thing
Will look into it.

I first was drawn to your brand because of the sport coats, trousers and dress shirts.

But starting with COVID and it looks like on an ongoing basis I'll need very little more formal options (still appreciate you offering what you do when I need it!) and have been drawn to the polished yet more casual offerings. You guys are doing great with this.

The I love buying too much outerwear and I'd love to see more. Maybe a suede field jacket? I might get an A1 but I'm not much of a trucker guy.

But I'd love to see you keep it up with sweatshirts, sweaters... and I know denim is coming. I trust you'll do this well.

Other casual basics I'd like are socks and high quality thick t-shirts. The shirts you had before were the only s&m item I didn't like. I prefer a thick, beefy t-shirt. And maybe some quality basic merino socks in basic colors?

Oh yeah and I'm looking forward to mto outerwear. I missed on the green double breasted overcoat a couple years back and it is haunting me.
Working on new T-shirts. First go was underwhelming. Socks at a good price require massive quantity buys. Looking into that too, but it isn't a priority at the moment.

We do have underwear coming. Really great Cotton/Modal blend. Very comfortable. $18

Green DB. You're wish will be granted this Fall.

I'd buy good quality socks if they weren't one-size. Glad you're back posting here Rick.

Speaking of upcoming FW drops, how did it go with the waxed canvas jackets you showed prototypes for a while back?

I'd love an oatmeal coloured cashmere cloth for MTO that is not too smooth. Pretty much the same shade as Simon Crompton's Elia Caliendo one

@spiermackay oh right, I forgot about the jeans..are those still in the works? I actually don't mind the uniqlo tapered fit (kaihara denim) that I have been wearing recently aside from the short inseam but would be interested to see your take on this
Yes. Still in the works. Should basically be same fit at the cords. 5 pocket. 3-4 washes. 100% cotton 13 oz. Non-Selvedge out of the gate. Target price $58 USD.

Nice! Given your high rise trousers are more of a mid/high rise, would you consider increasing the u-rise on the jeans? not to the proportions of dress trousers meant to be worn strictly with a jacket but some type of happy middle?

Somewhat related, any plans to increase the rise on the OTR high rise trousers? Any planned changes to the trouser pattern in the medium-term?

(I understand I have far surpassed my daily allowance of questions...:))

No complaints about the sweatshirts, the current model. However, if you're gonna change it. I can hold out for the new version. ;) I was planning on buying the Grey and navy ones to add since I'm very happy with my black.

I actually wear the sweatshirt alot since I'm WFH. Don't mess with the sizing though. First gen the medium is tight and now this current gen the medium has room. I could technically wear a smaller size but I wouldn't be able to layer.
Not planning on changing much. Maybe just a garment wash to reduce the cotton shine at purchase. But that goes away with the first wash as is. Not touching the size. I think we have that right with this lot.

Should be. Asking the web team to look into it.

New t-shirts and underwear? Really going with the basics now, nothing like quality in stuff I wear everyday lol

Looking forward to these. Think they would be ready for this FW or looking at next year? Unfortunately the original 5 pocket cords in 30 Slim fit me great, feel like the new 30 Slim would have too much room at waist and can't adjust.

@spiermackay I agree- would be great to see a decent mid-rise on the jeans, which would fit well with the rest of your tailored offerings. It's very difficult to find a moderate rise on jeans outside of custom/bespoke, but I'm sure you could pull it off. Just a touch higher than the 5 pocket cords if I'm remembering correctly.
