They'll come in Navy, Cocoa Herringbone, and Grape.

I've got photos of Navy & Cocoa, and they got delivered already. I can probably put them online tomorrow afternoon. We've got decent stock across sizes 30 - 36. Grape is going to come in about 3 weeks, but I'll post up a fabric scan tomorrow.

Now, there's two things to note on these fabrics:

1. This will most likely be the only "ready to wear" cutting of Walts. I'm going to offer matching, MTO Southwick jackets in all three colors for $795. You can choose your shape (Weller, Caine, Daltrey) and we'll do those on an individual basis. We can also take preoroders for Rudy's and Walts in 28 or 38.

2. The matching jacket will be impossibly ace with the trousers. With the trouser price at $225, you'd be getting a full US-made suit in genuine Scottish Shetland tweed for a tiny bit over $1K. Good lord. Perfect match for all those Carmina bal boots that were ordered!

3. This cloth is HEAVY. Not quite as heavy as Harris Tweed, but it's still serious. It's great if you live someplace with a cool Fall and cold Winter. For guys in warmer spots, I will have lighter weight Donegal tweeds for you in September.

I know there are plans for different Steinbeck options, will there be other Faulkner leather option?

I know, it was crazy! I actually just ordered one unit in that size for each style because we've tended to sell Carminas overwhelmingly in size 8-9.5US.

i'm loving the cognac fitzgerald shortwings. can't wait for the python austerity brogues!

Yeah, not sure why the shoe trees didn't arrive. I sent an inquiry, but they're still closed for August holiday, so I won't know for a week or two.

For belts, we actually got the first batch. Black and Chocolate Leather, and Snuff Suede. No shell yet, but I imagine that they'll ship that after they get back up and running. I'll put the first three belts online next week. The Snuff one is BOSS!

Is it comparable to the french blue in the duck, or more towards the navy regimental twill?
Thanks.

For color, I'd actually put it in between those. It's more like our medium grey flannel and navy flannel had a child.

In a related story, I had a dream last night that I returned my 11.5UK black Salinger double monks, and I exchanged them for an 11UK. I tried them on and they were the most perfect fitting shoes I ever wore. Then I woke up and was mad I didn't actually have the shoes. Is it a bad sign I'm actually having dreams about Epaulet gear?

We only include Carmina shoe trees with the MTO projects. I include them in the purchase price as a thank you for everyone committing to the order.

At some point we'll have them available for general sale, but they're going to be pricey. I believe around $100. It's due to the weight and the enormous duties on wooden products from the EU.

And I like your dreams!

Leather Wrapped Buttons: 3 units


Fly Cufflinks (with a dull hook): 1 unit

has anyone bought a polo in their regular epaulet shirt size or has everyone gone with the advice to size down 1?

I bought one in my normal size, S. It fits well, and for me I didn't want it to be overly tight.

That said, I do have some shirts in medium, which don't fit bad, I just found the smalls fit better. Also keep in mind that in Epaulet shirting the difference between sizes is minimal, unlike Gitman. Hope that helps....

Fit pic of the Duck Canvas Rivet Chino in Plum. Ended up exchanging the 34 for the 36. Much more satisfied with the fit. Still a bit of a lower rise than I'd anticipated, but enjoying how they feel much more. Still need to take the waist in a bit, although if I pull them down really low and put on a belt it's not too much of an issue. Thank you all for the feedback on the last photos posted and helping sizing to get all hammered out. Also exchanged the Gunmetal Canvas for the 36 - and have decided that I'm a diehard fan of duck cotton. Much prefer the weight and texture, and even despite the extra ounces they wear cooler in the heat.

Speaking of outfit pictures, where's Rob, Keith, and the rest of the gang?

Was pretty much on a bathing suit for the past week and a half...smile.gif

Though I think I do have one pic from dinner with my wife I'll dig up and post in a few...Cape May was very nice and for those who are interested is one of the best places to go that's gluten free/food allergy friendly, even better than NYC for what its worth.

Guys, I have a size medium cream speckled chambray I don't wear as much as I'd like. I know there was a lot of interest in this shirt...anyone wanna swap another Epaulet Medium shirt for this one? I'm looking for something a bit different, not a standard OCBD. Its unaltered and washed cold hang dried.

This.

On the factory finds special order trousers is there anyway to add cargo pockets on them? This would be a great option in the future.

PM'ed you in regards to doing special order Rivets & never heard back.

This morning.



I like the leaf green and cigar together, although I go back and forth as to whether Indy boots are too clunky for the rivet chinos.
post #14639 of 35231

^ I don't think they're too clunky, at least judging by the picture.

I'm going to rock my leaf ducks with the cigar LWB as soon as the shoes arrive icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Mint Green Rivets on my girl at Venice Beach yesterday. She looks way better in these than I do. She was seriously trying to take them home with her.

Also, I need to place an order for a 10.5 US for the Midnight Jodphur but I'm unable to do so. Should I just order a size and write my actual size in the comments on paypal?
