post #17041 of 33504
Are the 2nd round factory finds in the store and are there swatches for the third? I want to stop by the Manhattan store and see them both in person.
post #17042 of 33504
Got a question about the cord fabrics from the factory finds - is it possible to get these made without a crease, like the way the new denim Walts are going to be made up? I would get these mainly for casual wear, so I wouldn't want a pair with a hard crease in the front.

Double post....still getting used to the updated design on the mobile site

Just wanted to share the following:

Wore the Olive Windowpane Shetland Tweed Sportcoat today and received so many compliments from random strangers and colleagues...Absolutely terrific piece if anyone is in the market for a sportcoat...

Tried to post pics but I am not great with technology...Will try to get something up next time I wear it

I'm assuming the crease will come out when I wash them. I guess I'll find out.

I remember Mike posting not too long ago about this topic saying that the crease is easily removable by any dry cleaner. I believe his advice was to ask for "side to side" pressing.

^^ Yup.

Interestingly, my Walts from Need Supply (Regiment Twills) came pressed that way, and for that fabric, and my needs, I really like how it looks.

Can someone remind me: Should I machine wash before going to tailor for hemming, or is the shrinkage so minimal as to not matter?

We've got some new swatches at the Manhattan store to show, but actually most of the stuff is online. We lost a lot of time on that last round because of the hurricane, so when the delivery came in my guys got cracking on shipping it out immediately. We do have made up shots of most of the wools, and the cords are pretty straightforward on how they make up. But I'll have actual fabric swatches for the new stuff.

Awesome - glad that you're so pleased with it! I love the fabric on that.

It will come out a little bit. The best way to get rid of the crease is to just ask a dry cleaner to press them side to side. You can usually have this done without even cleaning them, and it just costs a few bucks. Most can do it right there on the spot.

So I bought the sample run size 31 Walts from the epauletnewyork site (my first foray into wool walts and I am impressed). The waist is pretty good (maybe just a hair tight) but the seat area gives me a murphy in the back. Will letting out the waist a bit help? Do I let out the seat? Both?

I'm about to do that to the medium gray Flannel Cargo Walts I also picked up. If you're willing to wait a week or so, I'm happy to post pics of how it turns out. EDIT: Also you can just get the thighs taken out, too.

 

FYI I wouldn't recommend this for a tougher fabric. I think it'd be really noticeable on Cramerton cloth, for instance.

 

Thanks! That'd be great! I'd love to see the pics of how it turns out. Im in no rush with mine. Just deciding what to do with them. I love the idea of the cargo pocket, but I think I'd actually get more use out of them m-f 9-5 as a regular flannel trouser. Was trying to figure out if I could get away with seeing clients with cargo's ha. I doubted it. But for $75 these gorgeous pants were just too great to pass up in my size.

Cross-post from our Carmina thread - may I present the first sample of our exclusive Epaulet/Styleforum boot: the Austerity Brogue Balmoral!



We're going to work on running this in a range of leathers for mid-Spring. I'll keep you guys posted.

One other quick note: the Walt Italian denim trouser passed the wash test with flying colors. No shrinkage on top, one inch of shrinkage in the length (compensated with the step that we made these 1" longer than usual). They'll a tiny bit tighter after the wash, but a few hours of wear should yield the Walt fit that we all know and love. And given the construction, I wouldn't anticipate any major stretching on these - at least nothing beyond a normal cotton trouser. The Denim looks clean with no fuzziness or problems.

I'll probably need a few days still to get these online, but this can hopefully be something that we stock on a semi-regular basis, whenever I can get more cloth. It's f-ing fantastic, and I think that you guys will find that it fills a really useful niche in your wardrobe.

Excuse the messy living room shots...was at the NYHS for their disappointing, yet highly advertised (in NYC at least) ww2 in NY exhibit all day. Was a shame because I was so looking forward to it. Anyway...to what never disappoints, Navy Donegal from last fall and the Ashland Tattersall...like buttah.

No prob. Will be happy to post pics, but -- again, it'll likely be a week or so until I'm able to.

 

Also, final 2012 Factory Finds are up on the old site!
