post #14401 of 37545
I was just about to order 2 pairs of trousers and a belt when I checked this thread.

Are there new fabrics coming in the next week or so? You're already out of my size in the olive gun check and navy windowpane linen, so can't hurt to see what you have up your sleeves next.

I, too, have a 40" chest, and I required an XL size for the popover shirt - so I guess I'm saying that it depends

I'm 38.5" and go Medium...

^ I'm 41-42 and the large size woven shirt from epaulet fits me in the chest (even if my proportions are off otherwise). The medium polo is a great fit for me. Don't have a popover shirt though.

Depends on how you like your fit, honestly. I'm a 42" chest and typically wear a "true" 44 (22 pit to pit) and an XL is perfect for me.

This is perfect.

We'll put up the next round of "Factory Finds" next Thursday. There's about 20 new fabrics to choose from - all of which are wool. Quite a few tweeds in there too.

For "ready to wear" Walts, we'll get our first Fall delivery around the end of August.



And got a quick fit photo for you guys. Here's our team of dudes at the Capsule trade show:



Matt's wearing the long sleeve oxford popover

Dylan's got the Caine Hopsack, cutaway collar navy gingham, ashland floral tie, and Walt natural linens. Ashland paisley pocket square too.

Jakes's wearing the Walt Cramertons. And yes, he's wearing a pith helmet. He got it on clearance at Black Fleece. I have to say, that dude OWNS that hat.

Aw crap. I've been eyeballing this for a couple of weeks, just couldn't decide on short or long sleeve until this past weekend. Highs in the low 60's in the Bay Area. In August. Which means long sleeve would get more wear, and of course my size (S) out of stock. Shot in the impossible dark here, but Mike or Matt, any chance this will see a restock?

I usually have my tailor hem the trousers to barely cover my ankle bones. Sometimes a bit higher if I truly want a no break look.

Mike: Can't wait to see the factory finds and the Epaulet team looks great in the pic!

I have a question regarding my 7oz caramel canvas rivets. They have seen about ~10 wears and seem like they are busting open in the seat. Is this normal wear in behavior for this type of pant? The fit on them is perfect and exactly how I want them to fit, snug but not overly tight.

I've been having the exact same problem, they fit fine in the seat but I had them let out recently (accepting the inevitable diaper-butt that would happen) because of that separation and my worry that it would get worse (I had worn them 5-6 times). I'm going to assume it's something to do with the fabric itself, either way I'm not entirely happy about it.

That being said, I just saw that a 10oz chino in caramel just got put up, and I wish I had waited for those instead of the 7oz ones. I feel like a heavier fabric is more suitable to that colour. Oh well.

Edit: Just checked my pair post-seat letting out. I've worn them once since and it's already separating there.

^ Hmmm. I have the exact same thing happening w/ my 7oz caramel pair as well. It actually started after 3 wearings. I've been watching it to see if it's getting worse, and was debating to post about it or just PM Mike. Don't really want to be a hassle, but also concerned that this is really fast seam/fabric distress, even for a lighter weight pant.

Ditto on not wanting to be a pain, I am very happy with my other pair of rivets but I was getting concerned about the rapid wear of the seams. I was debating emailing the store about it, but I thought I'd wait and see if anyone else was having similar issues.
