    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Am I alone in a deja vu feeling over Taylor Stitch and Howard Yount? [​IMG]

    I'm not familiar with HY. Why do you get that feeling?

    Classic Long hall in cone...I love cone, I've wanted a jacket like this for like 2 years but convinced myself I'd never wear it so I'd just buy thicker denim shirts to act as a substitute.

    Then saw wsj had an article on them and said f it and bought one...

    Awesome, let us know how it fits. Also interested in the Long Haul, but have no idea on sizing.

    It was meant as a half joke. HY offered good quality clothing at very good prices, but customer service levels fell off the cliff. HY was run by one guy, so while there are some similarities, there are more differences. It was more an attempt to vent my frustration over what I perceive as a precipitous drop in customer service at TS (Mina aside, who is awesome).

    Odd, I have had nothing but fantastic customer service from TS.

    i find TS very expensive, even while recognizing the selling points (quality, MTO, cloth, MIA). but the price point is still quite high relative to other players in this sphere.

    They're not cheap, but what's another made in the US brand that's substantially less and maintains the same quality ?

    Not all of it is made in US.

    Many pieces are now made in Portugal.

    Portugal, I think I've heard of that third world country before...you are correct some things are made in Portugal but that isn't a bad thing

    What's funny is that MIA shouldn't be the end-all-be-all. Fair trade with actual decent wage is what is important. They've said that they deal with a family owned/operated operation in Portugal and I think that should be good enough if they are truly fair. I think that if we ask TS to be fair then they will be. If they aren't already.

    The overall point is that it is not correct that TS is a MIA brand.

    It is in fact a brand that makes some things in America, and that's an important distinction.

    Well, we don't truly know if TS is working with the Portuguese factory because it's family owned. It had to be because of economic reasons (cheaper to produce) given their crowd sourcing model. MIA is important for a lot of customers and it helps the US economy in the long run.

    I was only getting at the fact that non-MIA isn't a sin. I do feel that it is important to have more "in-house" manufacturing in the US, but we shouldn't consider non-MIA evil outright.

    Had time to go over to the TS store on Valencia and they exchanged my 40 Merino Henley for a 42 no questions asked. The fit is spot on now!

    It's safe to say I am now fully confident in my TS sizing, but I wish I got a size up in my Maritime shirt in charcoal and Apres salt and pepper crew neck. Which is weird, because the 40 Merino Henley was a little too fitted for my tastes, considering both of my previous purchases are size 36 38.

    If anyone wants some lightly worn gear from around last year, HMU!
