Fall Preview: Eisenhower Jacket

Hey guys,

Just wanted to show this piece off. A new design for Fall '12, this is called the "Eisenhower" jacket.





We wanted to create a very versatile and easy to wear bomber jacket. It has a very clean design with a point collar, throat latch, and open bottom. We trimmed out a bunch of details in soft calfskin leather as well. Has a blackwatch liner too with interior pockets.

It's going to come in three varieties:

1. Navy Melton Wool (pictured)
2. Loro Piana Charcoal Wool Flannel (little more luxurious)
3. Tobacco Goat Suede (will be so freaking nice it hurts)

Made in the US of A. Should be here around late September.

Haha, it does resemble the jacket that Walter White is always wearing around. Thankfully Epaulet doesn't sell those ugly Wallabees that WW for some reason has an obsession with.

That jacket looks like it would be incredible in suede...

Heisenberg says hello

tobacco goat suede would be like the one jerry seinfeld wore in that one episode, minus the candy striped lining, of course.

Haha, you're totally right! Maybe we should change the name....

And I don't have the final pricing, but I'm thinking high 300's for Melton, high 500's for Loro Piana, and maybe close to $900 for the suede. We only made a few suede units, and it's absolutely gorgeous goat suede a la Purple Label.

Last year we had a great business with Gant Rugger melton harringtons which were around $350. This will be a bit more, but with RADICALLY better materials, made in the states, and gorgeous leather accents. Better fit too. It really came out killer.

I've always felt there are too few mandarin collar jackets in this world.

 

Any plans to do something like that?

Fall is shaping up to be a great season. That jacket at those price points are quite sweet.

New Carmina Styles

Hey guys, here are the two new Carmina's that we just received:


Salinger Double Monk Burgundy Shell Cordovan: $825

These might be the best looking shoes that we've ever received. They are stunning in person. The burgundy shell is lighter and more vibrant than Color 8, and it's absolutely gorgeous on the thicker stacked medium brown sole. Inca last.


Hawthorne Handsewn Moc Snuff Suede: $325


We developed this style in partnership with Carmina. As you guys know, we used to offer our own handsewn collection. When the opportunity came up to make new styles in Spain, I added a few tweaks to increase the quality:
1. The stacked sole has a leather covering on the bottom to protect the stitching. Moccasin shoes are very soft and comfortable, but they lack the durability of goodyear welts because once the bottom stitching touches the pavement, the whole shoe blows out. We designed ours with a thicker sole and a protective leather covering to offer significantly more wear before a resole is necessary.

2. Most moc's also have exposed stitching at the front which you can feel with your toes if you wear them barefoot. We used glove leather lining to the edge to keep it comfy throughout inside.

3. Suede moc's have a somewhat unattractive "butt seam" on the toe box where the two pieces of suede meet. If you look closely, you can see the rough interior of the leather. With smooth leathers this is fine, but it looks a little cheap with suede (IMO). So we used a "rolled English moc", which is a small strip of leather that rolls down and covers the seam. And thereby keeps it so fresh and so clean.

Long story short, these are the best freaking penny loafers that I've ever seen from anyone for anywhere near this price. Fit is fantastic on them, and you can get your normal Carmina size. I'm really thrilled with how they came out.

Those are so beautiful. Wow.

Mike,

Any chance of seeing the moc in a sand suede in the future or maybe a special order?
post #14249 of 37449
Damn... those loafers are hot. I would be correct in assuming that they can resoled in the same manner as all of the other Carminas that you guys sell, right, Mike?
