Agreed; I am 5'10" and I get 2" cuffs on everything. Looks great. Having long legs does help though, so those with shorter legs and longer torsos might not have the same result.

Im 5'8'' and I do 2'' cuffs and I've been told they make all of my trousers "pop", wouldn't have it any other way.

Man, I completely disagree with the consensus on cuffs around here. 

 

I think cuffs look stodgy every time I see them.

Agreed, I just can never bring myself to do it, at any length. I have skinny chicken legs and a really long torso and whenever I cuff nice, woolen dress trousers I feel like I'm saying to the world, "Hey, loogit my skinny bowed legs". I also feel like It busts up an otherwise clean silhouette. Denim and heavy chino fabric is a different story, perhaps because of the nature of fabric. I alternate between cuff (1" to 2", whatever...I'm not breaking out a ruler when I get dressed) and no cuff there, depending on the shoes.

 

That said, dudes with big and/or straight-er legs pull this off well. Some of the fit pics I've seen on this and other threads illustrate how to do this well. It seems a personal stylistic choice on the part of the wearer, and like anything else in this arena, if you own it, it probably looks tops.

 

Full disclosure, though. In case my personal taste shifts down the road or my doping regimen pays dividends in the leg weight gain area, I ask my tailor to leave enough fabric when hemming in case I change my mind on cuffs down the road. That's the great thing about EP trou's: they're built to last through frequent wear, minor size/weight fluctuations, and shifting personal taste over time.

Thanks Epaulet!

Thank you sir, glad that you're pleased with them!

Oh no doesn't have to be private. The final price will differ slightly by fabric and details chose, but figure it would be about $750 to do an unlined Donegal. Turnaround time to you is between 4-6 weeks. We have a few customers in Texas that have expressed interest in such a piece. It's a great way to wear an interesting Fall fabric, but the unlined body will keep it a bit cooler. And a grey donegal is a very versatile piece. Match it with navy dress trousers, khakis, jeans, etc.

Okay, couldn't hold this back. We made a four-way polka dot pocket square. You can wear it with any of the colors facing out. This stuff is bonkers.

Amazing stuff as always Mike!

Can you post a quick preview of the new sweaters?

Thanks!

Awesome, thanks. That sounds pretty promising. I think that would be a really useful jacket down here. Out of curiosity, what all fabrics do yall keep on hand to be able to do custom jackets with?

Any chance of a restock on the Flex Welt Chukka in Snuff? Close to a purchase on this and would rather buy from you guys if you think it's coming in soon(ish).

Thanks!
