Swung by the Smith St. store to pickup the Nightshade Walts. Everything people have said about these is true, they are wonderful. The Samuelsohn jackets are one of the best things Epaulet has ever done. I tried on the multi-fleck navy and it was an instant purchase. I only wish I could somehow have my alterations tailor do the sleeves tomorrow, I seriously can't wait to wear this thing!
I went to the Smith St. store today and tried on the Mulberry. Unfortunately it didn't quite fit me right, but my goodness that jacket is sick. The leather is amazing, and having the combination of hand warmer pockets and flap pockets is a great feature. If you are considering just go for it.
Good lord that blouson sweater is amazing. I will be keeping a close eye on the outerwear this season, I am coveting one of those.
This is what I'm thinking of. Black is a classic combination, but I find dark brown to be a much nicer combination with navy. However, since the black suit (which should subsequently be used for evening only!) can only take black shoes he's better of focusing on a good black pair (balmoral style, either plain toe or cap toe with no detail work).
I would say navy. Charcoal is a fine suit, but navy will serve you better. Make it as simple as possible. No details like ticket pockets, peak lapels, or odd button stitching. Go with a simple two or three button (I prefer two), the best fit you can get (don't be afraid of an alterations tailor) and the best quality cloth you can afford. Then start saving for a good pair of shoes. Since you've got a black suit, and navy can get away with black shoes go for those.
Bumped with price drop.
Excited to see Epaulet expanding, sad to see Mike and Adel leaving Brooklyn. Oh so close to going after one of the FF jackets, might need to swing by a store and see the swatches in person!
I have a pair of lightly worn (maybe 15-20 times, see closeups of soles) Crockette & Jones suede chukkas for sale. I love them, but the last just doesn't quite work for me. These were originally bought from Ben Silver, so they are US Sized 8 D. Original box with some wear, original shoe bags included. Payment via Paypal please. Shipping free to continental US.
In the Spring 2013 look-book on Flickr I saw a 4x2 double breasted suit. Is that an option now, or are DBs still 6x2 only? I'm considering getting my Kent Wang suit fit figured out and would love do a blue glen plaid 4x2.
I did hear back from Jamison today about processing my return. I'm glad he could contact me, though I'm disappointed it took literally a month. He's got great product, and his shipping process seems very efficient. He's really got to improve communication however. I would definitely advise hiring a virtual assistant to handle emails.
