    @ Oddcult - I'll be in touch with you about that today.

    @ stsparky - It depends on the garment. Currently I have the Pinkerton/Chesterton graded to fit a maximum 50" chest and 52" waist measurement.
    The Steeplejacks are graded out to a 62" waist (although I haven't had a pair made in that size so I need to check that nothing weird happens when they're sewn up at that large a size).

    @Kradlum - The Chestertons are available and fit up to a maximum 50" chest and 52" waist. We have a few in stock (not sure why they aren't on Etsy) email me your measurements and I'll let you know if we have any in your size.

    @everyone - wow, thanks for the support folks! I'm really happy to see that people dig this idea.

    Given that our server is more robust than yours, you might want to direct people to this thread for questions and answers? While the rush is on, I mean.

    Thanks Warren, that's very kind. Our server seems to be holding Ok* now but I'll link through to here anyway as the Whitechapel community are asking all the most pertinent questions.

    *Our Web Badger was taken completely by surprise but is now keeping a much closer eye on things. We are pleased to report that our server failed "gracefully".

    Oh, and seriously, we need a "Warren Ellis crashed my website and..." Tshirt, or a merit badge, or something....

    Gonna look into getting one, but just wanted to chime in and say it's fantastic that on the men's vest you take both the chest and waist measurement. It will fit you better than anything you've ever bought.

    I am very very tempted. There is one thing - my shoulders are a hint muscular for a woman, particularly underneath the arm where it meets the torso, so small armholes simply do not work for me (unless I want to be uncomfortable and be stinky within a minute). Would altering that be too much work?

    Love your work, I've been a fan since I saw your original Amber Guard pics on the front page of DA. Will you ever be doing another run of those gorgeous hoodies? They look parkour-perfect.

    @ thom_wong, too right! Us gents need well fitted garments too.

    @ trini_naenae, on the medium size Teasdale the armhole falls about 2 1/2" down the side-seam from the armpit, the total armhole circumference measurement is 20"
    That is to say, it's not a very tight fit and is designed to easily accommodate a wide sleeved shirt. I expect you will find the fit to be just fine as is.

    @ ruzkin, Thanks! Not sure whether you mean the Amber Guard Hoodie (as modeled by Mr. Sizer) or the Story teller hoodie.
    Either way, the answer would be yes, we have plans toward a similar garment in the future.

    I was referring to the Amber Guard hoodie - I've coveted that entire set since I first saw it, to tell the truth. I'll just hover around your site until something pops up. Keep up the excellent work.
