From my experience, lighter fabric will feel tighter than medium/heavy fabric, and had to go one size up.

Received my second round of Factory Finds, olive flannels and salt and pepper donegal tweeds, and love them. Would like some purple Walt cords. Congratulations on the first year, Mike and Adele.

Mike, I don't suppose you own any custom knives do you? Seems like it would be up your alley.

That's generally true, but I found that my linen Walts stretched a little, more than any cotton or wool Walts have, so that they went from feeling a bit tight to perfect after a couple of wears. Might be worth a try before having them altered.

I love pocket knives. I may own over 20 of them.

This scares me a little...

Pretty sure I would get put in jail if I was discovered carrying that thing around in my EPs here in Aus!

Let's not get into RKBA (at least in the USA) here please. I'm afraid I'll end up having to ignore a lot of posters I generally like.

I don't really know what you mean there. At face value I find the thought of anyone owning a weapon collection a bit chilling. I know those are pocket knives though. The comment was a bit tongue in cheek.

Can't imagine someone owning 20 guns or knives here in Aust. We have a very different attitude towards and regulatory system of weapons compared to the USA.

Knives and bars are the weapons of the "gangs" here, not guns. Guns generally only crop up when organised crime is involved.

Well, this is a little off-topic, but I was sharpening this item earlier today and I realized how much I freaking like it. Given how well it fits with our trousers, I figured that I'd put together some pictures and a recommendation.
I love pocket knives. I may own over 20 of them. I picked this one up about six months ago, and it quickly became my favorite. The brand is called "Mcusta," and it's made in Japan.

As you guys can see, we get a LOT of product here at Epaulet. There's always plenty of boxes to open, so I typically carry a small knife with me every day to work. But this has been the first one that feels comfortable to really carry all of the time. It fits perfectly into the small interior coin pocket that's built into every Walt & Rudy trouser, and it's an ideal balance of being heavy enough to be substantial while you use it but light enough that it's easy to forget that you're carrying it. They make this model in a ton of different styles and materials, but this one is my favorite - the cool damascus steel blade and the etched bamboo handle. The price on this was really fair.
I'd recommend this piece to both veteran and virgin pocket knife owners alike. It's tiny, so you won't be using it for any Crocodile Dundee-ish self defense scenarios, but it's incredibly useful in all sorts of daily cutting tasks. If you've never carried a small knife on you, you'll be surprised how much often it comes in handy.
These are generally available online, but I bought mine from a US-based seller on Ebay. If you search for Mcusta knives on there, you can find quite a bit, and you should be all good if you buy it from a seller with decent feedback.

Oh wow...I love pocket knives. Thanks for the info, definitely looking into this one!

Would it be possible to order a jacket in the airforce flannel during this round of factory finds? Just got the pants and a matching jacket would be amazing.

That would be insanely cool

When will there be more sportcoats? Will you restock the tweed Caine coat in 36?

It would be awesome to have a matching jacket option with each round of factory finds, but I have to think the cloth would disappear too fast.

Question for the Epaulet crew... the Merino Spruce Marl sweater indicates hand wash or dry clean. I want to confirm that there will be no shrinking if I hand wash in cold water. I have had a couple of sweaters from other brands shrink in water even when the tag indicated gentle wash in cold water was OK.

And congratulations to Mike and Adele on your first year of marriage. May it keep getting better.
