    Yeah, I saw that. Slight bummer. I'm too impatient.

    Thanks for the info! Really looking forward to future projects. Are any jackets in the pipelines? I loved the maritime jacket that was made out of melton wool a while back, but missed out... Would love to grab one, or something similar later on down the track.

    Will the Maritime shirt come back? Or something similar that adds hand warmer pockets?

    Just got my slim workshop chinos yesterday and have to say that I am thrilled with them. The sizing chart was spot-on and the fit is perfect for me as a tall, slim guy. The fabric also feels a lot more substantial as compared to what you get with something like J.Crew urban slims. Hope more are made in the future, as I would love to pick some up in other colors.

    I also agree that the chinos are absolutely incredible. The fit and fabric is awesome. I haven't worn chinos since high school... But these are legit.

    Also hoping the Yosemite shirts are a little bit longer than prior years. the fit on all my NEW TS shirts seems perfect after a few washes... it shrinks to the right size.

    My Sea Washed Japanese Denim Glacier Shirt just arrived. It's really nice, but the measurements are not accurate. I got a 40, the same size as the previous Fair Ends collab - the Sea Washed Indigo Selvage Chambray Glacier Shirt.

    Although the fit guide for both have exactly the same measurements, the new shirt is slightly smaller. In particular, the sleeves are a good inch shorter and it's tighter in the chest and a little shorter.

    I'm tossing up about returning for a 42. I like in the pic on the website how the guy is wearing it as an overshirt, over a henley. I don't think I could layer underneath as it is. I'm also concerned about shrinkage - any shrinkage at all and it won't work for me.

    @taylorstitch what kind of shrinkage can I expect on this?

    Hey @taylorstitch I'm looking at the Fit Guide links to compare the Workshop Chino in slim and regular and the image is the same for both.

    Can you please post the correct ones here? And I'm sure you will want to update the site.

    Is it easy to change those kind of pop stud buttons? I have no idea.

    Have you guys dialed in the sizing in your pants? I loved the first run of camp pants you guys did with Fair Ends, I ordered a pair from the second run in duck canvas that were way too tight. I also ordered chinos (all pants were the same size) that were way too big.

    Between shipping/return costs (I'm in Canada) I've had to give TS a pass because $30 shipping when I have to take a chance on sizing doesn't work for me.

    Would love to pick up another pair from the current collab release but not without confirmation that the size charts are actually accurate this time...

    I love what you guys do but I just can't afford the back and forth that I experienced with sizing.

    Yeah! Let me figure out what the difference is and get back to you ASAP.


    Should be the same as last years! We ran some of our oxfords a little longer for wedding season, but the shorter length is the norm across the board and our production going forward is going to adhere to that. Our Portuguese dress shirts are now our go-to for longer dress shirts.

    Sorry they came in a little trimmer! I've got one in 38 and it does feel a hair slimmer. I think the fabric has a little less give than the chambray did, and of course snaps don't allow the same 1/8th of an inch or so stretch. Shrinkage I can't speak to-- they've been one-washed, but may still shrink up to a quarter-inch in the length and sleeves. Collar and point-to-point should be good.

    I'm very happy with the new chinos. The fabric is fantastic -- I handled it in swatches, but it doesn't compare to the final product. I think we make a pretty compelling argument for best casual chinos for the price now, honestly.[

    I don't think we have any iterations of the Maritime in the pipe, but I think there's definitely a demand for something like it.

    It's pretty tough-- it takes a particular kind of press that we actually don't have in our shop or in the office. I also think the rivet leaves behind a pretty significant hole -- unlike tack buttons which, even though they're very heavy duty, actually only leave two fairly small pinpricks in the fabric. The pearl snaps are pretty bold. We were considering doing darker snaps, but in my experience dyed snaps are usually a little bit more fragile and tend to fall out of the snap a little bit.


    Hey Jon,

    Sorry about that! I don't know any pattern changes on the camp pants and as far as I knew the chinos were only dialed in very slightly. I'll double check while I chase down some other sizing info for oboy_oboy. If ever in doubt, don't hesitate to hit me up and I'll take a tape measure to a pair on the spot to make sure you're getting totally accurate info.

    Yup, happened too many times for me. Not ordering any more TS until there's accurate measurements for each garment. The kicker was the denim shirts that were sold as usual but had an extra 2" in the sleeves.
