    Hey, for some reason I am just not understanding this. Apologies if this is just me misreading but can anyone, or even Mauro, help me out with what Mauro means by, "So rewards members will be given prior knowledge to items releasing but you will receive pre-order and exclusives in your newsletters."

    i havent talked to mauro in awhile but presumably he means that he wants to have more product available on the web for regular non-loyalty members

    those of us who are loyalty members shouldnt have to and wouldnt want to wait till it hits the webstore since your size will likely be gone since he only makes small batches of shirting. in other words, your newsletters are the key to ordering the shirts you want. if you want the shirt, you will have to throw down for the pre-order. if you dont order at pre-order stage when newsletter comes out, you run the risk of your size not being available and/or mauro not making the shirt public on the webstore in the first place due to his minimums and allotment for b&m stores

    I think it means three things:
    1. The only way to 100% guarantee you'll get a particular item is to pre-order it. The newsletters will give us a heads-up on pre-ordering deadlines.
    2. In addition to having the opportunity to pre-order stuff that's in the normal production cycle, we'll also occasionally get the exclusive opportunity through the newsletter to purchase something that won't be available for general sale through the website.
    3. From time to time, we'll also get an advance warning before something goes up for sale on the website. No guarantee your preferred size/style will be available, but at least you have a chance to check before everything gets bought.

    I could be totally wrong, though. :)

    Will the new chinos have the non-vanity sizing like last time? So that means you should size up 2-3 from your "normal" pants size again? Cause I loved the fit of a 29 predator in the legs, but I need like another 3 inches in the waist... That means even the slim chinos would be too baggy on me, and I don't have skinny legs.

    Anyone know how often the newsletters mentioned are usually released? Quarterly?

    If you want to cancel your order please email me and I will happily refund you. The Flannels have been a nightmare. The wool is VERY thick. My factory is backed up and I have made a road trip from DC to Ohio to make sure everything was going smooth. The flannels are not even a week late. I had to make sure the valentines day shirts weren't late. I will not do a special order like this again. It threw my whole Spring'14 production out of whack. I am just as frustrated as you are but the shirts take time to be sewn correctly. We match are plaids and prints. The fabrics are different widths so need to be cut at different time. There are so many factors. I apologize but if you can't wait then cancel your order.
    For the record I really went out of my way to try make everyone happy. Some people requested changes that weren't offered and I went ahead and did them. I won't do that anymore either. It takes WAY to much time. I am doing my best and people want so much more than what I can give. I am sorry.

    Where do you think this up? Everything is marked a graded accordingly. Your true waist size is your true waist size there is no fudging the math. The predator chinos are slim and if you have thick leg the predator body style might not be for you. You might want the justin body style.





    You are correct.

    Think you guys should cut Mauro some slack. Its obvious he prides himself on customer service and want to put out a good product. I didn't buy a flannel, but I look forward to seeing them. I'm sure they won't disappoint.

    I don't know about any of you other guys, but I never really expected the MTO flannels to arrive before the end of January, and if they are sent by next week I would be genuinely impressed. By the time we all ordered, it was around mid December. Mauro hadn't even received the cloth for production. If you thought that a MTO from scratch would be churned out so quickly, you'd be kidding yourself.

    Think you misread me, Mauro. I was basically saying how the predators aren't that slim once you've sized up for your actual waist measurement. If the waist was vanity sized with the current slimness/cut, it would be perfect to me. So if the new chinos are cut/sized exactly the same, this cut just isn't for me unfortunately.

    Thanks for the update. I wasn't being critical, I was just asking for an update. Looking forward to receiving mine.

    I love how using your actual waist measurement has become "sizing up". :)

    Nope. I'd still like the shirt. Not your fault I live in the desert where we get about 1 month of flannel weather a year :)

    Haha true, it does sound weird. But it makes sense considering we're wearing them on our hips rather than our actual waist given the rise.

    This is one of the many things that I really appreciate with all the shirts I've bought so far. It's not like the shirts are just cookie cut out of long reams of fabric. The patterns on all my shirts line up really nicely. Maybe not a huge deal to some, but I really like the extra mile taken with the shirts.

    The downside? I notice sloppy shit on my other purchases. Bought a vest recently from a NY Techwear brand that used a polkadot Japanese fabric on the outer and the pattern isn't lined up nicely at all, not even close. Probably wasn't even considered... and the retail was $350+. O_O

    It's like 5PM in Mauro's time. Not sure anymore if the newsletter will be coming today.

    What gives you the impression he's on a 9-5 schedule? If he's been working all day photographing products and everything else then he's probably scrambling to push one out.
