post #15421 of 32778
Can anyone relate how the rivet chinos fit compared to anything else? The dimensions look similar to RRL low straights, Levi's 505, and a few other brands/ fits, according to my measurements. Any advice is appreciated, I struggle to find the right fit in pants, usually requiring a straight fit at least and usually a relaxed fit (cyclist and proud of the thunder). Thank-you in advance.

still catching up on all my Europe shots. I took my Epaulet blue OCBD for a spin in Monaco:

view from our airbnb apartment. this place was rad and extremely affordable in a town that's anything but. if anyone is traveling to Monaco and wants the info, don't hesitate to send me a PM

 

There were a whole bunch of US WWII vehicles next to the Palace to celebrate the anniversary of the liberation of Monaco by the Americans. The story (supposedly) goes that apparently the Germans had taken off a week before but everyone was nervous they might be coming back. Instead, two American GIs, including future-author Irwin Shaw, came down the road from Menton, pulled up at the first bar, ordered a couple drinks, and announced the liberation of Monaco. I disapproved of the speed limit of this particular military vehicle, however.

I really want to meet whatever baller that decided the American car that he just HAD to import and drive around Monaco was a late-80s Cavalier convertible.

 

Jaeger-bombs (and blue shirt party)

This is my Jaeger-bomb face, not to be confused with my karaoke face (see Epaulet thread)

no big deal

Were those taken with the S100, Stan? Post them up on Tumblr so I can reblog!

Haha, on it. Yeah, these were with my second S100 that I had to buy after the first one experienced a lens error (known issue, covered by warranty) shortly before our trip. Since I didn't have time to send it in, I grabbed another one but I ended up returning it because a couple days in, it too started having lens issues; the opening mechanism only worked halfway so you had to manually push it the rest of the way, and half the time it was producing really distorted images when anything was too close in the foreground.

 

My old one is being fixed now but I wasn't sure if it would be until today. When Mike & crew were here, Mike had a Sony pocket camera that I played around with briefly on Friday night. He said he's recommend it over an S100 and after using it a bit, I can see why. It had really quick refresh, and decent flash that wasn't overpowering, and seemed to produce pretty good images. I'm sure Mike can tell you more.

 

It was too bad you didn't make it to karaoke but I heard you were putting in some serious hours!

Yeah, man. I texted Gary. This impromptu visit from the auditing team came outta nowhere frown.gif

I plan on using my S100 in the rain (well, raindrops) this fall/winter so I bought the Best Buy warranty that is suppose to cover everything...we'll see.

My S100 is being repaired for the same issue - it's my only good camera and I couldn't stand it anymore so I ordered a Sony RX100 so I'll have a back up if any issues like this happen. The good news is that I heard that the fix that Canon will make is a permanent one so you shouldn't have that problem again. Sucks for it to happen, though.

I think these look great. There are some guys over on MC talking a lot of rot about how navy trousers never look good and no one needs to own them. I suspect readers of this thread will disagree.

Any chance the Navy Hopsack Caine sportcoats will be restocked soonish? I finally have reason to buy one but the sizes available are rather limited.

Should definitely be within the next few weeks. I know that they're in work right now.

You bet your ass. I'm always down for karaoke! Things are a little tougher in NYC though - you have to make a reservation and really stick to it, so I would need people to RSVP and commit to a date. Who's interested?

Not for this season, but the Veneto has been a hit so far, and I imagine we'll run something new from that manufacturer next Fall.

Also, shirts update por favor!

Thanks for the help

Hmm, good question on those. They're all pretty bold. I imagine that the Barn Red cords are the easiest of those three. The color is subdued and more "flat" due to the cotton ribbing. They look really boss with Navy or Grey jacket.

The Rivets are slim, but not tight. We definitely have guys with athletic legs who wear them.

That said a good rule of thumb is how you fit into typical "slim" jeans and trousers. If you can wear a Levis 501 or APC New Standard, then the Rivets will be just fine. If you have a really difficult time finding jeans that fit in the legs, then you'd most likely need a Rudy cut. We definitely have plenty of cyclists who wear and love the chinos.

Yes, guys, I have had a camera revelation. It is the Sony RX100. This thing is FANTASTIC!

I was a long-time owner of the Canon S95, and I nearly upgraded to the S100. The RX100 is considerably more expensive, but it has a much larger sensor and the photos it takes are pretty incredible. I'm thrilled with it. If you want a compact camera for serious photography, I think that it's the best on the market.

THAT SAID, there's still a place for the S100. The S100 has one of the best flash exposures that I've ever seen. RX100 flash shots are decent, but flash pics from the S95/100 have an awesome look to them that's exceptional. It's much cheaper, smaller, and easier to use as well. I find myself fiddling with the RX100, whereas using the S95 was like second nature. I can see the rationale for both. But currently the RX100 has my heart. Case in point is posted below. Compact cameras typically take noisy and flat long-exposure shots at night. This pic was shot with the RX100 on the roof of the Standard, and it's brilliant up to about 2500 pixels. I used the rad in-camera 6-stop HDR system as well, which works flawlessly if the camera's on a tripod or stable on a ledge. This was shot on the ledge with a 2-sec self timer:

We sent in a reorder about 2 weeks ago. I'm hoping to have a full re-stock in about 4 weeks or so.

Hey Mike,

Do you know when the python Carminas will come in? Late October? I'm seriously amped for these!
post #15431 of 32778

Ok, I got my blue bedford cords.  After ordering I was worried that they may be a bit tough to pair shirts with, but it seems that they work really well with all things grey and brown.  I am guessing that they should work well with my tan/beige cashmere sweater too.  I am pretty stoked, as besides for some blues and my red flannel shirts, they may be able to take the place of jeans for a lot of my winter wardrobe.  I am really trying to get away from jeans for anything other than a quick trip to the grocery store or a hike in the woods, and once I pick up the heavyweight twill olive rivets, hopefully I will be there.  These blue bedfords are bad ass!  I will definitely be wearing them to work with sport shirts as well.  As always, well done Epaulet!

 

Mike, or anyone who has seen them, the olive twills are not super dark, are they?  I have a pair of uniqlo slim olive chinos that ended up being way too dark (a new dark olive that came out in late July), and I really do not need a second pair like them, even if the Rivets are a few notches up in quality and fit.

 

Also, are the new Carminas and/or Eisenhower jacket going up this week?  I am trying to decide wear to put this pay periods clothes budget, and those are quite high on my list.

Mike-
Two questions...

Will the next round of Factory Finds be launched on Thurs?

When do you anticipate to receive more of your F/W knits?

If you have any photos of the blue bedford cords, I'd love to see them.  (I've seen the ones on the Epaulet site, but would like to see more of how they look out in the wild)   I'm still sitting on the fence about them.  Very tempting. thumbs-up.gif
