I've been looking at brown trousers for the last few weeks. I never bought a pair because dark brown is so mundane to me. I've been looking at the Shetland Cocoa all day today, and just pulled the trigger. I think the herringbone pattern did it for me, also Donegal wool just rocks.
I want to add a permanent cuff to them. Do you think the weight is too heavy to do so?
Thank you sir and enjoy them! I'd agree with NYR, these are just fine to cuff. You may want to get them tapered a bit too if you want a slim fit at the ankle - those cuffs will add some bulk given the weight of the cloth.
Oh man, sorry to hear that! But try wearing them for a day. The seat should stretch back out just fine. And the inseam will get longer as the fabric breaks back in. You can try pulling on it as well. This length shrinkage happens with denim as well - as cotton tends to contract after drying - but most guys don't notice it there because they don't hem jeans as high as chinos. It won't be a huge amount, but you may find that it's enough after some wear.
Thank you and enjoy them!
Ah, Adele is the shirting maestro, but I know that we've got a gingham oxford popover going live this week. Should have our first Fall shirts in the next few weeks as well - both Epaulet and Ashland lines.
1. Wool Rivets are going live tomorrow - we'll post them here once they go up. They came out freaking fantastic
2. No ETA on the cotton h-bone rivets at the moment, but I imagine around the end of October. Still backordered on the cloth from Japan
3. Saddle shell belts should definitely be in the next shipment - around three weeks or so.
Christmas in August! I just received my first batch of special order pants today and they are awesome!!!!! Epaulet, these trousers are awesome! I had lots of buyers remorse about the teal, and thought they may turn out a touch feminine for my taste, but they are possibly my favorite pair! The plaid (not sure of the correct term) will be the most difficult for me to pull off, but I am sure that once i get the balls to wear them out a couple of times, it will be easy. I can not wait for the 2 pairs from the second batch, and my steinbecks should be here Monday... Please stop releasing such perfect apparel!

Can you give any hints to what style of boots you will be releasing from Carmina? Also, any new Alden Indies coming in? I got a new pair from ebay for $330, but that was before I realized I needed to size down .5 (I purchased a 10BD, but need 9.5), so I am thinking about selling and springing for a new pair if they will have a sole that works ok in the rain.
Whoa, they came out great! Thank you so much for picking them up! And man, don't have any remorse on the teal - that color is absolutely killer. We loved it when it arrived. Pair those and the plaids with a solid navy jacket and you're good to go. Looking forward to the fit pics!
We should restock Indy boots pretty soon - the next few weeks or so. Getting the new Cigar Shell Wolverines in about three weeks. And with Carmina, they'll be wingtip boots a plenty, a captoe boot, and I believe a plain toe as well.
I received my special order Midnight Donegal and Bronze/Olive Donegal Walts today. I'm very happy with how they turned out. Can't wait to wear them in the fall!Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Looking good - thanks for picking them up!
Adele should have some swatches, I'll see if we can post them up.
And I believe that you have a Liberty Fabric mashup shirt coming your way
Absolutely, we can do that for you. Just drop Matt a PM whenever you want to get the ball rolling.
Grabbed my pre-orders today...man, sweet, even better than I anticipated.
Today, Multi Color Large Gingham shirt: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Shorts are old school beat to hell 501 selvedge cut down, shoes Alden, ink fresh.
I think that the shirt looks good - that's how most of our in-store guys want their shirts to fit. And can we get some shots of the new tattoo? Congrats on that!
