Awesome, so glad you're onboard. Jessica is very good, she'll take care of you. I'll keep an eye on your progress too.Just finished a somewhat long (because of me) process of ordering a pair of denim, made to measure. Can't wait. Todd and Jessica were super helpful over the phone/email in every element of fit, how each rinse/wash might vary, and so on. Loved this process and can't wait for the finished project. If you're patient and will think thoroughly about what you like/don't like, this is a great deal and a fun experience. And obviously, do the fit kit.
I have four blue/white long sleeve button down collar seersucker shirts that I wear to work all summer long. I think it’s a very under-rated business casual fabric.We found a mill in Italy that we're excited about. It's small, family-run, only employees about 30 people - has an ethos we endorse - and they're doing high-quality work. One fabric they specialize in is Seersucker. We run Seersucker every Spring, so this year we switched from Japanese to Italian.
We're also testing a trouser fabric from this mill that'll release next Month.
Today we're releasing Vintage Stripe Seersucker in an IPR. It's an off-white base, with a dull navy stripe. It's classic and sophisticated. As you probably know, we make the shirts to order in our East Rutherford, NJ factory. If you have any fit questions, let me know.

@beargonefishing You bought it?! Thanks and thanks for posting the pic. Looks to be a really good fit through shoulders, chest, and neck.
@WillingToLearn Sorry I missed you last week. The team said you were "great" and that you even assisted with another guy that was feeling a bit uncertain about making the move from looser jeans to more fitted jeans. Thanks.i have my first pair of jeans and my first waffle henley in process. Very excited. Had a chance to visit the NJ location last week and loved getting to meet the team (although Todd was unfortunately out). Well worth it to refine the fit and make the human connection.
@Patrick R This is one fabric that is a casualty of online photos (72 dpi). It's as good of a seersucker as I've seen, but you can't see the texture and you certainly can't feel it. I've seen your posts where you mix textures, and you're advanced at it - some guys are going to feel uncertain about what they can wear seersucker with. Can they wear it with a smooth dress trouser fabric? Cotton pants? Jeans? I think the answer is yes to all, but it's dependent on the texture of those pants. A lightweight, shiny, super refined dress trouser won't match up to a relaxed cotton seersucker - but seersucker would match up well to a more organic looking, wool/cotton trouser. We shot it with our pro original jean because it has strong texture. Matching up seersucker is not a no-brainer, it requires thought.I have four blue/white long sleeve button down collar seersucker shirts that I wear to work all summer long.

Your fabric looks even nicer than mine. I like the muted tones.
