I believe the Marcello fit has been retired and replaced by the Napoli fit. I don't know how many fit options we'll have though.

Looking at getting in contact with Epaulet concerning an order I wish to make, what would be the best way to do it?

You can also PM them here on the forum. Mike the proprietor has posted here in the last few hours.

For those of you from Canada, did you guys need to pay duties/brokerage fee on your purchases? I think normally you won't have to pay that since Epaulet ships with USPS and the fact that most products are made in USA. Just want to see how your experiences are. Thanks.

I've had to pay; but I don't remember what percentage it was.

I've almost always had to pay duties/brokerage for Epaulet packages. USPS just gets given to Canada Post and they make me pick up all packages from the post office and charge me fees.

You should have to pay tax (13% for Ontario), but not duty since they are made in the USA. I don't think USPS/CanPost collects for brokerage.

Importations are subject to GST and PST, where applicable or HST where that exists. Because most of Epaulet's gear is made in the USA, they are exempt from duty under NAFTA. Occasionally, if I'm lucky, a parcel will get through without any fees whatsoever. I think that depends on what kind of day the Customs inspector is having.

Regarding brokerage, Customs charges a flat rate, I think $10 now, for every parcel that they subject to tax/duties.

Sorry about that - our European products typically get delivered once a season, and once they sell out, they don't return until the following year.

Yup, most people sized down 2" in the Hardie. It can stretch out if it needs to as well, so it's possible that a true 37 could also wear a 34 in the sweater.

The actual fits are all pretty similar. The names just denote the details. Weller is standard sportcoat. Daltrey has patch and flap pockets for a more substantial look. Napoli has a soft unconstructed shoulder. Most guys would take the same size in all of them.

The Marcello was an Italian made jacket that was really tight. It's been discontinued. All of the Factory Finds coats are made by Southwick in our proven shapes.

The taxes on items sent to Canada are pretty reasonable - I've never received a complaint about it. Since we use USPS, you avoid the additional brokerage charge that private carriers like UPS and FedEx can access. This is a significant amount. When goods are made in the USA, I know that a portion of duties are eliminated, but you're still charged some form of VAT sales tax - just as if you bought the item at a Canadian retailer. We ship about a dozen orders to Canada every day, so the process is definitely smooth and the duties are reasonable.

Another thing that we do is "bundle" orders for International customers. Many guys will place an order, pay the shipping charge, and ask us to hold it. They'll then place a few more orders with the "Store Pickup" option (no shipping charge) and we'll put that together with the item that they originally bought. We can ship everything together when they give us the word.

The shipping charge is fixed no matter how much you buy, so this allows you to make several purchases but only pay once for shipping.

For those of you who are outside the USA, such as myself, the folks at Epaulet are really great about this. This has allowed me to pick off items as they show up because we all know how quickly things can sell out.

FTFY. Seriously though, I think I was one of the only people that the Marcello fit really well (hence, I own two of them). The Epaulet Southwick shapes obviously fit way more people.

 

I'm so pleased, though, to see the unconstructed jacket live on in the Napoli. Mike, I picked up my Navy Hopsack Napoli order (i.e. the Napoli version of the original Caine) yesterday, and it fits unbelievably well. I'm very happy with it. It has one of the best unconstructed shoulders I've ever seen on any jacket anywhere, and it's all the more remarkable that a shoulder like that is coming from a dyed-in-the-wool American suitmaker.
