Oh and Mike, let me know about LA! I responded to your post a few pages back but I think it got lost in the shuffle... been busy out there in NY?
Looking good! Dig that DTLA backdrop too.
Oh, and on LA we're planning for the middle of September, but I haven't nailed any dates down yet. We'll hold it on a Saturday, but it's pretty open. I'll run it by the members here to try and find a date that works for as many guys as possible. You'll definitely be a crucial asset for our "Wesside Karaoke Explosion" that will be held immediately following the trunk show.
Hey Mike, are the snuff suede Salingers a regular production run? I mean, will they be re-upped fairly frequently? The reason I ask is because, I really want to cop a pair, but the navy shell dubs are calling my name, and there's no way I can justify all the expenditures I'm plotting in my head right now.
We've got one restock of Snuff Salingers coming in about two weeks, but that will probably be it for the year.
Hmmm, Snuff vs Shell is a tough one! The choice might hinge on your climate. If you're in a warmer spot, then suede can be a true year-round material. Here in NYC and locals of similar temperature, you'll probably get more wear ouf of the shell in the Fall/Winter.
Rivet Chino delivery just arrived. Moss Duck 10oz, French Blue 7oz and Merlot 7oz. Love all 3 colors. I must say the 7oz fabrics seem ideal for Australia. I would say wearable for 3-3/12 seasons. The fabric seems fairly light but durable. The Moss duck are as warned, stiff and industrial strength. I have all 3 weights of Rivet Chino in canvas now and I probably like the 7oz best of all.
Fantastic - thanks so much for ordering and I'm thrilled that you're so pleased with everything!
We tested that out on guys in the store - you should be safe with the Small in that. Sizing on knit tees vs wovens is always a little wonky, but I think that this will be fine on you. I comfortably wear a Large and Dylan wears a Medium.
Longevity is always crucial for me. Of course lighter, finer fabrics are going to wear out faster than heavier ones, but the 7oz canvas strikes a fantastic balance of being a breathable light cloth but still being pretty rugged. Don't worry about it too much - they should provide plenty of wear and keep you cool.

Awesome, those look great. Thanks for picking them up!
If anyone has any experience with this kind of situation, I'd appreciate some advice.
Yesterday, I ordered a pair of Rivet trousers in size 30, and paid the $30 for expedited shipping because I want them for the 4th. I'd like to ammend the order and also purchase a pair of 29s, because I'm not sure which will fit me better (I can return the undesirable pair). I know the Epaulet stores aren't open on Monday, so if I call tomorrow bright and early, would they be able to add another pair of pants to my order? Or do they ship from a warehouse somewhere, and are unable to modify orders?
Ah man, my apologies - I'm out of the country all week, but the guys are coming back to work on Thursday. We processed nearly all of the orders over the weekend, so you can certainly PM Matt at leftofthedial to see if we shipped out your 30's. We're typically closed on Mondays, and we closed on Tues and Wed too in order to give everyone a 4-day break.
If we end up shipping on Thurs morning and you want regular Priority Mail then we'll of course refund that Express charge that you paid. Just let Matt know what you prefer.
