    I think End Clothing is a good example of how to do photography that helps sell the clothes. Lots of mid-range and close-up detail shots (that you can zoom even more on by clicking) that show the thickness of the fabric, texture, construction details, etc.

    Pretty sure that level of site doesn't make sense for someone with as little infrastructure as Mauro. IMO Haven has one of the best sites in the business.

    Mother fucker! You shouldn't even be driving. You live in the city and walk to work. Don't get me started with you and money.

    A scored waistband or notched waist is the little " V" cut out in the back of the waistband on the trousers. It's a nice touch to a split back waist so the tailor can open and close it with greater ease.

    The continuous waistband or Hollywood waistband is when the trouser looks like it doesn't have a waistband at all. It can be front and back , back, or front. Front gets kinda of feminine but it can work depending on the style of pant and fabric. Usually it's done in the back. It's a very cool look in my opinion and brings a new level of sophistication to the game. I put side straps on instead of a buckle back because the side straps are functional.
    On friday I will get fit pics of the pants. I have two styles. The pants come in the Predator and Justin body unless you choose MTM.

    I will give you a nice tutorial tomorrow on the pants. I wish my hand sewn pant video was up and ready. My pant makers breaks it down really well.

    Not to start shit up again but here lies another issue. I agree End Clothing had some great shots and haven also has a nice website. Now the hard part. I pay for every picture taken so if I have 3 product shots I get charged for three pictures. If I have 6 product shots I have to pay for 6 pictures. That shit adds up quick and then I have to raise my prices which nobody wants. It's a real catch 22.
    If I was heavily funded or had multiple thousands of rewards members I would do ALL of that and more. That's my goal. However , I am not heavily funded and I don't have thousands of rewards members , yet.This is why I complain so much. It's not me being a whiny prick. It's me balancing making people happy and being able to cash flow. It's all about volume. A numbers game plain and simple.

    I am slowly growing and as I grow, I add more to the site , copy, etc... I don't do the copy. I suck at writing. Most of the time people think I am retarded. Copier writers cost money.
    I have added a couple more photos which you will see up on each page very soon.
    I will give the new pre-sale one more week and what ever is left over will go up on the actual website with spiffy new pictures.

    I was literally just thinking today about wanting to buy some WvG wool pants. I'm not seeing any belt loops in these. Does that mean we just need to wear suspenders for these?

    Also, when you say you'd want to put then into production, would that be by pre-order? Also wondering what other pants you're hoping to put out soon.

    Damn, if I still lived in DC I'd totally pimp out my GF to take product shots for you. Maybe I can introduce you to a photographer friend of mine who's probably coming to the pig roast with me. She's been doing non-photo stuff lately but maybe she'll know someone who'll exchange product photos for WvG clothing. :laugh:

    I'm pretty sure that's what the side straps are there for. No additional hardware needed.

    Hey Mauro, will all the pants be in the same style? Meaning no belt loops with side straps.

    Thanks

    Here is another pant body. Regular loops with tab waist, scored back, 1/8th front pockets, and zip fly.
    If you want this model pant in a button fly that's fine too.

    The side straps and Hollywood back is for the people in the fast lane. The traditional waistband with loops is for everyone else.
    I am currently working on a machined version for the people who don't care about hand craftsmanship and just want a solid pair of trouser at a good price.

    I will give some teaser pics tomorrow of the flannels. One flannel is from my mill in the " Okayama Prefecture" it's pretty damn cool but is pricy. As well as the three wool shirts from Takisada. The rest are very well price. I have cotton wool blends and 100% cotton. I think most will be very happy. The price points will run the gamut.

    What would the price difference between the machined and hand made versions be?


    Will they all be available MTO with special order options from your factory in Ohio, or will any of them be like the recent run of 6 chambray shirts from NJ without options?

    A machined pant is made by a machine or guided by hand. A hand sewn garment is hand sewn with thread and a needle. The most important part to me is the pressing and shaping of the pant. Having a hand press garment at each station that needs pressed is a big deal to the way the garment will drape. I believe stress point and hand sewn bar tacking comes in 2nd. Putting to many holes in any fabric is bad so making a proper bar tack is a big deal. The waist curtain and zipper play a big deal and are often over looked. A lot of people say this to me or write it social media of one shape or another is " that's the smoothest zipper I have ever seen or felt". It's those little things that really stand out in the end.

    I am not sure about the flannels but I think they will go to Ohio. They did such a great job on last years batch.

    Also, not to be a dick, but are the underwear that say "soft as a babies bottom" going to be changed to "soft as a baby's bottom"? I know someone mentioned the error before. I personally love all of the writing on tags and logos, but I understand how the errors may bother some. That being said, I hope my sheep shirt says something cool on the care tag.

    Don't think of it as an error. Think of it as a rare treasure. Like finding a double headed quarter. Next batch will say something else.
