White with gum would be f'ing amazing.
I've tried a number of shirt makers. Carl is hands down the nicest. He's gotten my fit dialed in (after 2 shirts!) to the point I just can't think of going anywhere else. His prices are totally fair and the quality is phenomenal. I've referred a number of coworkers to Carl and they have all been thrilled with the results. No idea what Jacobd's experience was, but mine have always been awesome. Speaking of which, I should probably go see Carl for some more shirts....
That Kamigata looks amazing. And I'm intrigued by this upcoming leather jacket! Any word on what style it might be? I've been hunting for a leather jacket for a while but haven't found anything quite right yet.
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!
