They're normally super expensive, but they put their seconds on eBay because there are knots in the wooden handle, nothing to alter how it works. I let them hang out for a day or two before putting them back in the closet. This usually means I don't need to clean them at all, but if I really wear a pair to death, I'll have them cleaned at the end of the season, but in garment bags and hung in storage until they're ready to come out again. As far as the right way to hang them in the closet, just make sure you fold over the crease, leave the trousers unbuttoned and unzipped, and most importantly that they have enough room to breathe in the closet. Same for jackets. Hope that helps.
Thanks for the advice, NYR. I didn't know that you should leave trousers unbuttoned and unzipped when hanging them up, so that's a big help.

As far as the Kent brushes go, is there a specific seller that has them in stock for cheap? I'm searching for "Kent brushes" on eBay right now, and there are a thousand different results popping up, and all of them look pretty expensive ($40-$80).

With the herringbone taping down the side, they are going to be freaking killer. Should come in around late September.
 

 

Looks like my budget for September is already spoken for...  Epaulet eats up more of my budget than every other clothing shop combined.

FYI I also wear the same size in WvG before dinner and Epaulet shirting -- a Medium in both.

Comparing the same size, which fits a bit looser?

These Rivets jumped out at me too. I've only started paying attention to Epaulet in the last 10 months or so, so I don't know if wool Rivets is something new. Seems like it might be. Anyone know?

They sound fantastic. Cranberry...

I have the mint Chinos too, and they are a great color. Not really too distressed and I wouldn't describe the as streaky at all. Maybe just a little weathered...

^ Poast photos. I was eyeballing them but if anything thought they didn't look distressed enough smile.gif

Wool rivets will be new. I'm pretty stoked about this. Really looking forward to seeing the colors.

If you ever do get into it though, it's a great sport to keep you active and in shape. The social aspect of it can be pretty fun as well.

sorry for the super OT, but where do you teach in LA? I need lessons.

I got an early WvG before-dinner shirt and they have long since adjusted the fit, so I don't think I could compare the two fits in detail that accurately. Taking the same size in both is still the best bet, taking a quick look at the measurements. In general my impression is that WvG is going more for a skinny BoO fit and Epaulet's is more athletic. I enjoy wearing my Epaulet and Ashland shirts more. They sit much better on your shoulders.

yeah, I've really had to hold back. I really don't "need" 10 pairs of trousers, but dammit I like having the option. smile.gif I see the duck moss is back in my size. Crap.

in my experience,  BD slimmer than EP slimmer than AD.  EP fits me the best by far.
