This cardigan is bad ass! Fit is perfect (I think even better than the sites pics), and it is warm as hell! At 30° this morning I was not cold at all! I think this thing would be sufficient well into the 20°s.
I got this and I had to try the Ovadia and sons cable cardigan and although they are different styles, this one is easily superior. It fits better and is made in Scotland. Although I like the Ovadia (and will try them again in the future), it's inside pockets make it look like I have a bit of a belly and although I know well made clothing can come from China, I feel a lot more pride wearing a sweater from a country like Scotland.
I can not wait to see what sweaters similar to this one you put out next year!

That's a nice sweater. I like the tie with it. Good looking fit overall.

The FF deadline finally collided head on with my Procrastination.  Finally pulled the trigger on Rudy navy flannel.    

 

On another note, I'm so pissed !@#$censored.gif I missed the napoli hopsack.  sz 42 is gone.  I blame work/wife/child even though they are all innocent.  

 

Is there going to be a restock on that? 

 

To anyone out there who has the Napoli - how is it?  Thoughts, observations?  Discuss, discuss.

Well, I ordered a duck canvas Napoli and was mistakenly sent the hopsack version (it's now taken care of). I liked it a lot. The fit is the same as the Caine and Weller. I would have gone with the hopsack but it's just too similar to a hopsack navy blazer I already have. I think the duck canvas version will be an excellent casual sport coat and I plan to wear it a lot.

Shit! Looking awesome man. REALLY dig the tie and Chelsea boots(?).

Both are great pieces. It really depends on what look you're more into. The Caine is awesome and right in line with our "Anglo-American" styling that we try to have. The little padding in the shoulder is very subtle and Southwick does a great job with making it look natural. The pocket confiugation is right at home in a somewhat conservative office, but looks as good with jeans and a pair of bucks.

 

The Napoli is incredible and they REALLY outdid themselves with the construction. It's bonkers for a non-Italian manufacturer. The open patch pockets definitely make it on the more casual end of things, but it wouldn't look out of place in a more formal setting. It's also center-vented, in case you have a preference for single vs. dual.

In the meantime, natural Indy's maiden journey. These are my first pair of quality boots, and they are kick-ass (who am I trying to impress though, lol). I'm a comfortable 9D in Barrie, and these are perfect in the same size with some heavier socks. They turned out to behave not so well on slippery hard snow, but very good everywhere else I've been today.

Wearing them with olive heavyweight twill chinos (damn, those are perfect for this kind of weather, and I didn't expect them to match with other colors so well) and red/blue/cream flannel.

It has been discussed, but I'll give a quick recap:

 

Epauletshop.com is functioning as the main site until the end of the year. Epauletnewyork.com is basically acting as a discount site at the moment. We're all learning the ins and outs since it's a completely new server. And we're thrilled with the response so far. It's also a lot more functional and cleaner than the main site.

 

Sometime between Christmas and New Year's we'll build out everything onto Epaulet New York and links from the old site will be forwarded to the new one.

Ah man! Sorry to hear that. I will say, I'm almost a spot-on 36 (wear a 36 across the board in our jackets) and I'm wearing a 34 in the fit photos. If you're around a 36, or if one of our shirts in small is a little big on you, I'd go for the 34. With knitwear you typically want it to be a little tighter than normal in the beginning, since it will stretch and mold to your body. Worst case, if you wanted to try a 34, we always offer a 14 day return policy for SF members.

I'm not sure if they'll be here by the end of the year (a lot of factories shut down the weeks of Christmas and New Year's), but they'll certainly be here soon after.

Also - I think it has already been asked, but when is the exact date for the switch from epauletshop.com to epauletnewyork.com? And will there be any more additions or further reductions to sale items before the full change over? I've got my eye on one thing, but I've been hesitating pulling the trigger to see if there might be one more price reduction shog[1].gif

 

Thanks for grabbing some FF! Both of those are going to kick serious ass!

 

As far as the new site, we're shooting to make the change between December 25th and January 1st. And I think we'll throw a few more things up there (just a few random pieces we've had floating around for a while), but I'm not sure if there will be any further reductions. You know that we don't do sales very often and I'd venture to say the products currently featured won't be there much longer.

That thing looks KILLER on you. And I agree, very well put together overall. We're all floored by how this cardigan came out. The Scottish do an absolutely perfect job at crafting these things. Like I always say to in-store customers, there's a reason why they have been making knitwear for such a long time.

Hey man, it happens to the best of us! We'll definitely be restocking the Napoli, though probably not until January/early February. Southwick is one of the factories that shuts down for two weeks.

looks awesome. how tall are you? i like the length of it--seems a bit longer than the pics on the site but I know Dylan is fairly tall. very tempting.

this was me today--olive windowpane factory finds and officer indy boots.

Oisin, I am 6' (actually 5'11.5 wink.gif). I wear a 38 coat, 32 pant and a medium epaulet shirt. I noticed the length on Epaulets site, and that was what helped me decide overmost of the competition.  Plus, I figured that Epaulet most likely had the best fit... not to mention the loyalty I have developed from their involvement on styleforums.

I was gonna hold off on the factory finds but after seeing the post of the previous round's finds again, I just couldn't resist... decisions.gif

 

In for the chartreuse tweed, chessboard birdseye, airforce flannel, and wool-silk twill (in order of decreasing anticipation).

Ah apologies for that!

Epauletshop.com is our original site and will continue to host any new product launched in the next two weeks.

Epauletnewyork is the new site. We ran a bunch of sale product on there this season to test the new system and get it indexed by google.

In between Christmas and New Years, we're going to inventory the entire store and bring all of the merchandise fully onto epauletnewyork.com. Epauletshop.com will get redirected to the new site, and we'll have a whole bunch of new functionality.

Absolutely, we'll restock the Napoli in all sizes for late Jan / early Feb.

Our feedback on that jacket has been really exceptional so far. Southwick did a killer job on the soft shoulder, and the fit is excellent. It gives the same lightweight and easy vibe as Boglioli's unconstructed pieces, but at a much better price for the fabric used, and it's made in the States. I imagine that we'll use the Napoli shape for the majority of our Spring '13 jackets. I grabbed a 40 as soon as it arrives, and I've been wearing it every other day.

Thank you sir! Great choices on these - they're definitely four of the best offerings. I love me that Chessboard Birdseye.

Unfortunately, I'm a true 38 (40 in some designer clothing), so the 34 will be way too small. Thanks for the 14 return policy, I just ordered the 38 in the hopes it's a good fit.
