When do the Selvedge Jacks ship?
I got mine today. It fits weird compared to usual TS shirts. Tighter across the chest/shoulders and much longer in length. I think that may have something to do with it being part of the telegraph collection and designed to be worn tucked in? I'm not sure. I was planning on mostly wearing it casually with jeans and stuff so I'm a bit bummed about that I may end up still keeping it and tucking in for work because it's a seriously cool shirt otherwise. Please let us know what you think of the fit when yours arrives.

I'm going to admit I was a little bit miffed when the kimono workshopped yesterday for women- I saw it on Instagram, not noticing it said women's edition. Had my money out to throw down for tonight's release. Kimono for men!

In their journal section of the TS website, it actually lists the kimono under paper to product men's edition. Personally, I was not thrilled to see that. I'm pumped for the Mission Workshop collab. though. That forest green jacket has my name all over it. I have been looking for something waterproof with a performance vibe to it. I backed the beach jacket but this will be replacing that and is much more in line with what I was hoping for.

The Kimono looks great and I'd be down to get the pants on the model as well.

There are so many fabrics/pieces that I wish men had as well.

I think I was more frustrated with the price of the rain jacket. $400 for a rain jacket? Sometimes I just don't understand the pricing schemes. I still love Taylor Stitch, but I get nervous that their brand will soon become far too expensive for basic products.

I actually think the price for the rain jacket is pretty fair. The retail price for the actual Mission Workshop jacket is 450 and that price is rarely marked down.

Also, I wouldn't worry about being too expensive for basics. The great thing about the Workshop is that they can do unique collaborations or create unique pieces that goes beyond their normal stock of clothes.

Have to disagree on this one. Look around at other waterproof jackets made out of the same materials. They are all very expensive. I think it's cool that TS is offering products like this rain coat, the Rancourt collabs, leather Moto jacket, etc even if they are at a high price point.

While I generally agree that the pricing is increasing for the crowdfunded products ($118-138 for a shirt after the crowdfunded period), the raincoat seems like a decent deal. The material is crazy expensive, the color is good (MW usually deal with Black or Charcoal, which is questionable for cyclists), and the regular price is $450 from MW.

At the price of the recent shirt releases, TS is moving into MTM cost territory and loses much of the allure for me. That and the basics seem to never be in stock in my size.

Just my $0.02.

Not impressed with the color options for the Yosemite. I would prefer reds, greens, or browns as a base color. Those colors work better with jeans and also match well with khaki. Lighter colors and blues are better for lighter weight IMO. The only one I liked was the blackwatch which I already have. The fabric and construction are still great though.

I love chamois cloth but have hesitated from buying these because I don't want a fitted shirt in that style. I'd like a little more room to layer or relax.

I'm pretty sure their old "stock only" model had shirts priced around $128 often times (though they offered the %10 off for the first day); some of the oxfords were around $98 I believe. I'll be the first to admit an increase in prices (the selvage jacks do seem a little higher than others), but they're also offering a lot of new, and sometimes more obscure, fabrics. The appeal of crowdfunding is that you can offer things you otherwise couldn't, so it only makes sense that they'd experiment with some nicer or riskier options.

I have the black watch and wear the hell out of it both layered and not. One of my favorite TS purchases.
