    90 days for fabric. 60 days for production. 30 days shipping. It's a full 6 month cycle. How zara and H&M churn stuff out in 2-3 weeks is magic.

    Noticed some new short sizes on the sport jackets and outerwear; any measurements on those?

    What's the weight on the E Thomas slubs compared to the tweeds that just dropped?

    36 Contemporary has been discontinued as is 36 Contemporary Short and 34 Slim.

    Reason, is these sizes were pretty much the slowest selling and we found most people opted for 36 slim or 38 Slim in place.

    They are a bit lighter and they are unstuctured/soft structured compared to the canvas product of the tweed. If you want that traditional English look, you can't beat the tweed. The slubs are a totally different animal.

    He
    Well I've been waiting for a navy tweed so why wait. Just placed an order for the olive moleskin and the navy tweed since I think those two should work well for me.

    This is an interesting but not surprising development. I noticed that 30 Contemps were added back as a trouser option. I assume one could swap out the Slim trousers on the 36 for Contemps?

    @spiermackay will these be shipping immediately? Didn't look like pre-order.

    Want place my order when the rest drop so I can decide, but don't want to miss my size in that navy tweed.

    Thanks

    Yes, you can swap trousers for different sizes and fits.

    Any 38S in the tweed or moleskin Contemp?

    Might talk to your tailor and see how much it would be to make one work vs MTM. My nuances might be a bit more forgiving in the unstructured moleskin.

    Could anyone compare the sizing difference between a same size in the slim versus the contemporary fits for a jacket? I have two 38 slim jackets and have been wondering if I should try a 38 contemporary since the chest/waist of the slim is a little snug (or if I should just let the slim out a little). I'm considering grabbing a tweed jacket or two.
