Huge thanks to everyone for the Anniversary well-wishes! We had an awesome time getting out of town.

Excellent, glad that you like them!

Linen tends to make up a bit smaller than wool - but it also stretches quite a bit with wear. I'd try wearing them once or twice for a few hours before you let them out. In most cases, they'll stretch out enough to be comfortable.

And yes, I would dry clean them. Linen breathes really well, so unless you actually spill something on them, you don't have to clean them too often.

No, but I'm going to put that on my holiday list right now icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Ah, unfortunately we're tapped out of fabric to do that. But we can make matching jackets from most of our in-season Fall fabrics. We've made suits in Oxford Grey Flannel, Purple Shetland, Navy Shetland, and Charred Forest Flannel so far. As long as the fabric holds out, we can make your tweed/flannel dreams come true!

Yup, we've got two sportcoats going live this week. An awesome patterned Harris Tweed and our Heavyweight Navy Wool. Both in the Daltrey fit. Should be up by tomorrow night.

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

Thank you sir!

And although you can officially hand-wash the sweater, I wouldn't recommend it with a merino piece. Dry cleaning it is a lot safer, and it's not something that you have to do frequently. For any of you guys out there with yards - just hanging your wool sweaters / trousers / jackets outside for a few hours on a cool day is often enough to get them smelling fresh.

When it comes to chunky handknits, hand-washing can work better because they tend to stretch and conform to your body. But it's a bit of a gamble with a fine-gauge merino or cashmere. I wouldn't do it with my own sweaters.

Good question, I'm not really sure. Factory Finds by definition are limited and deadstock fabrics - usually without their invoices. If I had to guess, I'd peg this around 12oz wool.

Yup, we'll probably do one final round at the end of October / first week of November for delivery right before the holidays.

I just threw it on with what I had on today.  I do know that the neck of my shirt is a touch big, but I am only concerned with the jacket.

It is a 38 weller navy 120, I was given a few suggestions on which size to purchase, and I appreciate the advice.  My tailor did say that moving up to a 40 would be too big in the shoulders.

And thank you, I know my sink and soap dispenser are lovely. wink.gif

Wow, that looks great on you! Shoulder looks good, lapel is rolling nicely. Only two points from my side:

1. You typically don't button the top button on a 3-roll-2. It's just decorative, and the jacket is intended to be worn with only the middle button closed. That's why the lapel looks a little funky with the button done up.

2. I like the length of your sleeves, but I like showing quite a bit of cuff. A lot of our customers do. Some guys would definitely look to get their sleeves lengthened from where yours are. It's easy to do - there's a full inch that can be let out by a tailor. But it's really up to your taste. Personally, I think that more cuff looks more cool (within reason, of course).

Only bad thing is top button pulls but I doubt you'll button that much.

post #15843 of 37323
Do not ever button the top button. Otherwise, looks good.
post #15844 of 37323
Haha, thanks for the heads up on the top button, I have not had a 3/2 before. All previous jackets were just two buttons. It's good to hear though, because it definitely feels muh better with only the middle button.

Mike, any new shirts going up this week?
post #15845 of 37323
Wearing my Epaulet uniform today. EpauletxCarmina natural short wings, Epaulet navy marl Walts (FW '11), Epaulet white point collar shirt, Epaulet grey marl V-neck. Now if only Epaulet made socks and tighty whities....
post #15846 of 37323
Will there be a restock of the Midnight Blue Super 120 Walts?
My size is sold out.

Agreed re not buttoning the top button. It looks good enough that I'd absolutely pick up the matching trousers to make it a suit.

Quick question -- a bit back one of the Epaulet guys posted a fit pic wearing a shawl cardigan sweater/sweatshirt, THAT WAS NOT EPAULET. Does anyone remember where it was from. I have searched and tried to find the pick but can't seem to find it or remember the make. Thanks for any help.

Are you talking about this?

 

 

The cardigan is 100% cotton and is made by Velva Sheen. I think the retail is around $150, but I picked it up on sale from Indigo and Cotton. I HIGHLY recommend it.

post #15853 of 37323
Bingo...yes, I knew it was one of your pics, leftofthedial. But I searched and couldn't find it. Awesome, thanks. JT
