This must have been mentioned, but a 21oz Black Wabash CPO. Blanket lined a bonus.

edit : 21oz pls.

Laura stated that the N1 is good and it better be in small people sizes.  Love you guys!
How small do we need it to be?

Black sells slower than indigo.  The Indigo 12oz version sold slowly (but well enough for us to consider a re-run).  We asked for retailer orders for both the indigo and the black and got zero traction for a black version.  So I'm a little cautious about considering a 21oz version....

@Giles She has been a small in 97% of her items and XS in the vest.  Many thanks!

Those back pocket beer coasters looked lovely sitting on the "coffee" table in your Good Art Showroom. They would look lovely on MY coffee table too (if I had one), just sayin....

They used to get made in Hachioji by one of the staff who has subsequently left.  Never been made since, not saying it won't happen though.....

Have you ever offered tall sizes for shirts or jackets? I love your stuff but if I wore an XL for the length I'd be swimming in it.

It hasn’t been done before, but it was mentioned as being under consideration a few months ago. Where that is at now, I don’t know.

It is something that is under consideration.

The main issue is that as a brand, we are not really large enough to offer multiple cuts in a style. 

I'm sure someone will point me to a brand that is smaller than we are, who do that, but if they do, their business/production model is different from ours and/or they don't care about being profitable.  We care very much about being profitable because that allows us to grow and experiment.  But we have to do it a considered, manageable, least-risk way.

So we do stuff like this slowly and when we think it makes sense for the brand.  We introduced 4XL recently and may start making some tops in 5XL soon.  We are going to offer longer version of some t-shirts soon, so that we have a better match for more body types.

We will continue to consider making long versions of some items, but it is complicated and high risk, so it needs to be very carefully thought through.

...Haraki said during a discussion about moving the brand forward "I have decided that I will start making stuff that our customers want, not just what I like"...

Awwww shit!  Chances for a brown duck wallet happening in the future just increased a very small percentage.  :D ;D

All leather goods (wallets and bags) should be made in denim... standard 21oz, SuperBlack, and/or SBG.

Not that the leather items aren't gorgeous!

But.....

The leather goods come at a serious premium.

A SuperBlack or SBG (even duck.....) IHE-40 would sell like crazy, imo.

SBG or standard 21oz wallets would, as well.....

Hell, even a 2-3 layer denim belt (even non-selvedge) would be a no-brainer buy!!!
