    Why yes it is. Note the heart patch on Dizzy’s jeans, too:

    Is that a tie-front shirt?! Lovely album

    It's beautiful, but the buckle's upside down! I've never tried it this way up, maybe it'd work really nicely. Lovely job though, and great to see a unique take on this buckle :-)

    Thanks so much for this Julian! The Wide Face shirt is a really nice one, I think it'll work well for you. It's not quite as wide as the Bridge Pocket Shirt, but a similar feel. The sleeves are a little longer. Here are a couple of photos (size 3, and I'm wearing a T-shirt underneath)- flat to show the proportions, and with the cuffs rolled back as I wear it myself (I have short arms and like cuffs on my wrist):

    ^nice choices @sensy! I'm sure you'll enjoy the 125s, it's a lovely cut. I recently received a beautiful pair of 130s back from an old friend @gregd. Here they are lined up with Unborn- these weren't hemmed, this is the leg shrinkage (~39" unborn to ~36" inseam after washing):

    something new! but as far as can be seen in this photo, 132. I'm hoping to get these into production later in the Spring- more then

    gorgeous @merzbot! Thank you. I'm so sorry for the lack of posts in the last few weeks, the end of the year was very busy, and I've had a couple of weeks off. Happy new year and I hope everyone had a lovely holidays. To get them on the record, a new pair for 2023, now about a month old. More as things progress:

    @julian-wolf thank you so much, and I'm really pleased you're enjoying your Bridge Pocket shirt- as you say it's wider and shorter than some other styles (all the fabrics are pretty much the same) and wears really nicely oversized. I'd love to see photos! @AlientoyWorkmachine and @mondo I'm delighted your 129s are wearing well, this is so great to hear, and AW your's are looking lovely. I dug my own 129s out recently- they're a bit tight on me at the moment, but it's a great fit. Maybe they'll get some more time in the new year. For now, though, most of AW22 is in and arriving with stockists. There's a new coat style, the 953 Double Breasted Split Back Coat, in a particularly lovely fabric: here's a (beautifully laid out, as always) page from The Complete Imbiber 5, from 1961 (worth seeking out! lovely books about booze), mentioning the etymology of the word grog. Hence the development and name of this horizontally ribbed (gross grain) fabric on a fine ecru cotton warp with a fat natural Herdwick wool weft. here is is on the loom: and here it is in a coat, dyed with chlorophyll:

    ^many thanks @discop. Speaking of beautiful, here is one of the very first pieces of the 900 jacket, from 2010, worn and repaired over the last decade by @gregd. I particularly love the fade on the right shoulder, and the corresponding wear to the yoke seam, presumably from a shoulder bag.

    Thanks for this, and to be honest, no I haven't. I do like the ceremony and tradition in seeing warrants on things (and when I spent time in Henry Poole, on Savile Row, it was exciting seeing stuff made for the royal family, and the warrant shield up on the wall), but I'm not sure that I'd want Tender to be a current part of that world. More to the point, though, I'm not sure my things would be relevant to, or suitable for, a royal warrant- I believe warrants are issued to manufacturers, more than brands or designers. But thank you, it's a lovely suggestion! In the meantime, I've been wearing my Bold Indigo Weaver's Blanket Stripe trews daily for the last few months, and generally over the past 3? years or so, and I realised today how much the bias fabric has shaped and softened. They're slow faders, but the different twill patterns in the stripes (alternating right hand, broken, left hand, and plain weave) have really taken on a lot of character: In other news, we've just set up a mailing list for a newsletter that I'll send out every now and again. I'm planning to write a bit about design processes that go into specific garments, and be able to bridge across styles from different seasons that we have in stock on the Tender Stores. A lot of attention goes on new things, but a nice part of having a site where old stock sits alongside new styles is that you can see connections between different productions, and different garments. If anyone fancies signing up you can click https://www.tenderstores.com/?subscribe=display or go to tenderstores.com and scroll down to the footer where there's a 'Mailing List' button.

    Thanks a lot @julian-wolf. I've had a couple of enquiries about this shirt, I should have been more careful! This was an option in the original AW19 production, but I'm afraid I don't have any left in stock. I do have a very nice 456 Janus Shirt in the same fabric (and the same fit, just different pocket layout), and I have a couple of other fabrics in stock in the Yoke Pocket Shirt, but I'm not planning to remake this exact version I'm afraid. Sorry not to be able to help more, and thanks again.

    Trying to remember name of Evisu sub brand.

    you could also be thinking of the 'Student' line? This might be better in the Evisu Is Still Loved thread

    I have it back! with new mainspring, gaskets, and crystal. The power reserve tested at nearly 50hrs, which is way better than I’ve had recently. Couldn’t be happier with the service from Ray at watchguy.co.uk and all’s working well so far. With Tender 132s being packed for Japanese restocks:

    thanks for this @Toegun, I'm afraid I don't have any more shorts coming through this year. The 140 shorts are really lovely, but they do come up quite slim, and vary a bit by fabric. Would you mind emailing me to let me know which version(s) you're interested in? Then I'll give you full measurements with pleasure. Thanks again!
