    Today, we're releasing tonal jeans for a limited time, good for guys who have modern-leaning style. https://toddshelton.com/jeans
    These and other denim month releases are IPR (initial production run) offers, which means you can save money.

    We have lots of fit options. Don't let that overwhelm you, cause you'll benefit from at least one or more of the more unique options. I can help you navigate the options.

    I want to invite styleforum guys to an open house we're having next Saturday. Feb 23, 10AM-4PM.

    We're going to have beer, wine, food, sewing activities for kids, a photo gallery, free denim repair, music, etc. Just chatting and snacking. We're in East Rutherford, NJ. If you're in the NYC area, come see us. If you don't have a lot of time, just pop in for 15 minutes. If you think you might come, reply to me here.

    Today we released a new tan selvedge jean. I'm interested to see how our guy responds to colored jeans. You can see it here: https://toddshelton.com/jeans/tan-selvedge-jean

    It's 11.5 oz, which is a bit lighter than our Indigo Series and slightly heavier than our Pro Soft Series. It feels and has a surface texture like denim, not so much like chino. Let me know if you have any questions on fit or your thoughts on colored denim. Thanks.

    What do you think about slub cotton t-shirts? Good or bad?

    Today we're doing an Experimental IPR to gauge your interest in slub cotton jersey. We're offering Heather Red and Heather Blue. The fabric is from Japan. The IPR is good through Monday, production begins 3/25. https://toddshelton.com/t-shirts

    I posted this thought/question in our email newsletter - and I wanted to see if anyone here had thoughts on this.

    I'm wondering how tattoos are interpreted in product photography nowadays. Have they gone mainstream enough in art, entertainment, and sports to have a non-impact on consumers? Or are they a potential liability? I understand the art and subject matter of the tattoo weigh into this discussion as well.

    Any thoughts?

    Potential opportunity/liability. They still function to communicate a group to which one belongs. If your audience belongs in that group, it’s an opportunity to reflect/demonstrate community or vice versa. The group is no longer as exclusive, so the message is weaker, but if I were to guess I would think the message isn’t negligible.

    I'd say this is right, although no customer has ever said anything, one way or another.

    This week we're doing an experimental IPR, Baja Cotton Overshirts. This is slubby, very textured shirting from Japan. Probably the first time we've released a shirt this laid back, so I'm curious to see how our guys react. If you have thoughts on this style, let me know here.

    Coincidentally, I’m wearing a slubby, textured cotton shirt today. But I think I’m more comfortable with it being a solid base:

    That's strong visual texture, the shirt is fun. And with cords! You gave the world a double dose of texture. Thanks for sharing that pic.

    In the Fall we do a solid range of cotton/cashmere overshirts.

    It's a valid point, I agree a classic overshirt has pockets with flaps. This is a pretty chunky fabric, pockets with flaps would've certainly added bulk and affect the fit. Some guys like that bulk in an overshirt. We also shot it as not an overshirt, but I think most guys will leave it open or half-open over a t.

    We do or have done two chest pockets on some fabrics, and have sampled flaps.

    I may make one the Baja's for myself in a two pocket flap style and try it out. Thanks for the note!
