I think you are right too.

Mike, how much difference is there in the color of the sand bedford cords and the desert duck canvas?

 

 

Would anyone care to weigh in on sand bedford cord vs caramel ducks?  Versatility, availability, etc.  I'm torn.

As with most things from Epaulet, they look better in person.

 

Does Epaulet sell Carmina lasted shoe trees or know anyone who does? Going on 3 pairs with more to come, and am not happy with how the standard shoe trees I have fit. Thanks in advance!

Really diggin' those blackwatch trousers.
When can we expect them to go live?

Should be next week, but I'll have to play it by ear. Depending on the hurricane, we might only get them on Thurs or Friday. Soon though!

Funny that you should ask - we actually do. I'm cooking up a few denim things at the moment for the early spring.

They're similar to Gitman Vintage, so the difference in sizing is greater between each size than our shirts. Some guys can wear both Epaulet & Ashland, and some definitely prefer one fit over the other.

As a loose rule:

A Small Epaulet fits into a Small Ashland pretty well

A Medium Ashland runs a bit bigger than a Medium Epaulet. If the Medium epaulet fits you pretty slim, or you have an athletic build, wide-ish shoulders, then the Medium Ashland will probably work. If an Epaulet Large is a little big on you, then the Ashland Medium may work perfectly.

Ashland Large is a lot bigger than Epaulet Large. Generally Epaulet XL guys would take that size.

And if you have a Gitman Vintage shirt and you like the fit, then you'll probably LOVE the way that Ashland fits. Outside of the darts, we have a few more tweaks to optimize and straighten the fit, and they work very well. And Gitman can certainly make one of the best shirts in the biz.

Yes, Navy Label shirts will all be undarted.

I'll be in the capital, though, which is up in the mountains so it's usually in the 70s. I was originally thinking of picking up a pair of the regiments, but I definitely prefer the look of the steep twills.

Hmm, I'd definitely say that they're too thick for Costa Rica. They're pretty warm and lofty.

Regiment Twills would definitely be a better choice. Above and beyond that, I can definitely recommend the UK Sanded Canvas in either Olive or Butterscotch. Olive is a more versatile tone IMO. I wore these very comfortably on 70-degree days - or warmer - and it's a tough fabric that will wear very hard.

Yes, we're going to try and restock both that and the Purple Herringbone. Once the factory reopens we can confirm how much cloth they have remaining.

Thanks for picking them up and enjoy them! Man, I'm really thrilled with how those came out.

I guess the correct answer is probably one of each (LOL!), but I really only plan on getting one such shirt at this time. Thanks.

Navy Label will have a higher collar, pearl MOP buttons, and a striped interior contrast on the collar. The stripes will be visible inside the roll.

Ashland has a smaller, compact collar, smoke MOP buttons, and no contrast piece. The cut is a bit slimmer and more tapered.

They'll both have a similar overall vibe. The striped undercollar on the Navy Label shirts will be a cool, subtle detail that I think that you guys will really dig. But some guys will prefer the cleaner, no-contrast look of the Ashland shirt. I'm hoping that the Navy Label shirts arrive in the next week or two.

Hmm, that's really odd. Shoot me a PM with your name and order number, and we'll check into it.

Hmm, not a huge difference in color. Desert duck is a bit lighter, a bit paler in tone. They're both shades of dark tan.

They feel quite different though. The Desert Ducks start out really stiff, and then get softer with wear. The Bedford cords are soft from the onset. The Bedford Cords have a tighter weave, so they'll be a bit warmer on cold days, if that's a consideration. The Duck Canvas will fade a bit like denim with wear, while the Bedfords will fade like cords (fading & flattening happening on the ribs) - although you'll have to wear them a lot to see that effect. They've both been great sellers, and either one will be a really versatile, easily-matched neutral tone.

It is a precista it comes from Eddie Platts in UK (http://www.timefactors.com/), the model is the PRS-5 search within the page to find some explanations about this model

http://www.timefactors.com/precista.htm.

This item has a very good Q/P

 

Bon courage pour l'ouragan

Hurricane Sandy Style!

In between several shopping trips to stock up on bottled water, luncheon meat, and Italian Rice Balls, Adele and I snapped some fit photos. Sorry to say that the hurricane may have taken down our style quotient a few notches:



Arc'teryx Veilance M65-ish jacket (a great purchase through Buy & Sell)
Rudy Cramerton Trousers
Bean Boots


NAU Womens Urbane Jacket
Some manner of sweatpants
Bean Boots

And, may I present one gentleman who does NOT sacrifice style even in the face of 90MPH gale-force winds. Our original fit model, Damon Boelte:



Crazy rain and he STILL rocks the slim perfecto jacket that he picked up from us in Fall '10. Dude is unflappable.

I just wore my Walt Air Force flannels for the first time today and I couldn't agree more about the chameleon comment... Straight out dark gray in some light, completely blue in other light and every shade in between... They are definitely my favorite flannel.

NYR you still have power down there? Stay safe with the fam!

 

The energy from my elation at the Giants winning the World Series is probably what has kept the lights on this long up here.

Nice Veilance jacket. B&S is definitely the source for those.

 

(Mike I saw Damon at Minibar last night with I think this exact same fit -- he may just not have gone to sleep.)

 

Excited for when the rains stop and I the Navy Label shirting drops!

NY corner delis have the best bacon, egg and cheese sandwiches. A nice bagel sandwich is all I miss...
