Thanks man. It was a bummer, but this is how things are in our business. If it was easy then everyone would be doing it I ordered a few samples that I should be able to show to you guys within the next 8 weeks or so. I worked with two new factories - one place doing blake stitching, one place doing goodyear welts. My plan is to keep it real with our new developments by working largely with Spanish, Portuguese, and English leathers - trying to reflect the best craftsmanship...
Unfortunately not happening any time soon. We spent quite a bit of time and money on development, but it then turned out that the factory did not have the extra capacity to make them. Something may have changed about their financial situation - I don't really know.I'll say that developing really good private label shoes is the hardest thing to do in our industry. I'm always following a bunch of leads at any given time, and it's planned that most of them won't work out.
Hey guys! I got back to the States last night and I'm back in the game. I had a great trip to Portugal and it was fantastic to visit the factory. We've got a lot of great things in work, and I was able to vet some new goodyear welt factories while out there. By this time next year you'll see a really comprehensive collection of in-house Epaulet footwear, and as always, we'll work to bring the absolute best bang for buck on everything. A few notes from my side: 1) Huge...
Quick N' Dirty Factory Finds A combination of 3 hours of sleep in 24 hours and this ridiculous Portuguese meal of meat, cheese and eggs on a bay of French Fries got me thinking that it would be funny to call this Factory Finds round the "Quick N' Dirty" one. I may be rethinking that in the morning. Anyway.... this is the long promised Walt/Driggs/Rudy offering. I've got four colors of Abraham Moon heavyweight solid Shetland Tweed, all going out at $175. Order now, and we...
Yes, you'd need to size down one on this. We haven't fully fleshed out that item (damn Portugal hotel wi-fi), but Dylan's wearing a Small. You'd most likely need the equivalent of an XS in that.We've got another style in the wings too - a 3/4 length convertible coat. It's pretty rad.
Haha, I hear you. Go slowly at first :-)
You can do that really easily on your own. Wear the sweater and have someone pull slowly and evenly on the sleeves and body. It will stretch out and be fairly permanent.
Heirloom sweater right? Nah, don't worry about it stretching. Unless you're forcing it to stretch, it won't grow very much.
Long in the vest should be no problem. I'm just waiting to hear if we can do it throughout the whole size range, but 48L is a totally normal size for them to make.Wish that we could - all of the LA stuff is produced in larger quantities, and they can't do one-offs. A Reigning Champ XL sweat pant would probably fit you very well though. We don't carry them, but other accounts do. I really recommend the heavyweight fleece pant from this season (we'll have it online soon).I...
Hey guys, I'm a bit short on time today (flying out to Portugal in a few hours), but I wanted to give you an update on things: 1) Vests are definitely happening this week. Just waiting on measurements 2) For the sweaters, if you're not sure, the go up a size. We've had a few (very few, actually) return sweaters for being a bit small - and no one returning it for being a bit big. Most guys can really wear one or the other size, and the larger of the two doesn't look that...
