For the wool/silk twill pants on the current Factory Finds list, how does that color compare to some other mid grey trousers? For instance, are they lighter or darker than the super 120s medium grey? How do they compare to Oxford grey flannels as well?

One last FF question - how dark is the charcoal POW fabric? Would you typically need to wear black shoes with this color or could I get away with #8 shell or even some shades of brown?

+1 to this question.

Color-wise, I'd put them on a similar plane as the Oxford Grey flannel. The swatch scan looks a little too hyper-detailed, but they'll make up a nice medium-dark grey. Definitely darker than the Super 120's medium.

It's a true charcoal and it's pretty dark, but I think that it's a fine match to burgundy and dark brown shoes. Although some guys wouldn't, I would wear it with caramel and tan shoes without a problem too.

Very important question..Epaulet house shirts in size M fit me spot on with no additional room. I've received Ashland shirt in size S and it's extremely tight in the chest. Any of you wear same size in Epaulet M and Ashland M? smile.gif

Cheers!

Quoted for truth.

 

Last week I stopped by the brooklyn shop and discovered to my wallet's dismay what my size is in Epaulet shirts. Ashland line seems to fit OTR, if a little snug in the neck when it's buttoned, but the white label Ep line seems reallly long in the sleeves. Oh, well. Kopped a cozy tartan flannel and a spiewak. It was the first time that I dealt in person with Matt, and I'm happy to say the service was great.

I wear a medium in both. In fact, I would say that there is no way that I could fit into a small Ashland. It is just more necessary for me to take my medium to the tailor.

Hmm, interesting smile.gif I just received my first Ashland shirt. I was sure I had ordered a small (I'm a medium in Epaulet), but turned out I had ordered a medium as well. An Epaulet medium also fits me spot on with just a bit of room. An Ashland medium is spot on in the collar and shoulders, and somewhat roomy in the chest and waist (a touch roomier than an Italia medium I think). Combined with what's written wrt a large differential between Ashland sizes, I doubt that I could fit into a small, mainly in the shoulders.

So I was actually going to ask the same question smile.gif

Thanks, that was very helpful. I really like the shirt and will exchange it for M. In terms of alterations, with a good tailor, can he shorten the length and take in some chest without ruining the overall fit?

Thanks neutrino, can you post some fits by any chance?

I'm a medium pretty spot on in the Epaulet House brand...some of them are een small on me. The medium in Ashland was waaayyyyy baggy so I kopped Small, and while its a "touch" tight in the chest, i don't mind. The rest of it fits me pretty well. Here's a comparison:

Ashland Small:

You'll see its pulling a touch in the chest

Epaulet Medium:




None of these were altered at all. For the record I'm 5'9" and 170lbs. 33" waist 40" chest...hope that helps.

Rob, thanks for posting the fit pics and body dimensions. I was debating on what size to order, and we're exactly the same in height and weight and waist (I'm a tad smaller in the chest... but that extra weight is held in my belly shog[1].gif), and the recent posts had me second guessing what to order in a soon-to-be-placed Ashland purchase. Cheers.

Thanks a lot, NYR!

I don't have any room in Epaulet OCBD, the fit is almost like the one you have in Ashland OCBD.

Here's my fit in Ashland small Safari (excuse my washroom photo)



The thing is, the length is perfect, I could use some room in the arms/biceps, defiantly too tight in chest. I'm 5'8, 32" waist, 168lb, 38" chest.

cheers

^ Steel 28, I personally think it looks great in the chest. Definitely a slim look like NYR's, but a great one.

 

For the Epaulet Medium guys, the Ashland Small vs Medium discussion is always an interesting one. I'm lucky or unlucky enough to have somewhat narrow shoulders and a slim-ish build -- 6' tall, 150-ish lbs (155?), 38 chest -- and the Ashland Small fits me almost like it's bespoke. If I had a more muscular build, especially in the chest, I think I'd have trouble. Also my height is evenly distributed across my legs and torso, which helps for the shirt length.
