No, that completely misses his point.

post #18198 of 34841

you really think i'm advocating that?  just saying, quit worrying, go by the recommendation and don't fret b/c the measurements don't line up perfectly

thanks dudes. this one came together well. I like dressing for the cold. Seeing SVB's post about WAYWT, maybe i should try to start posting in there. Can always use some help. I am definitely not next level, heh. wj4, yeah my physical presence is in LA, but my heart is elsewhere. In another/future life I am an entrepreneur and raconteur living life in NY.

They're heavy, but nowhere near the Harris Tweed tank of trousers we ran last year. If you own any F/W pants in flannel or the Donegal tweeds we ran last year, they'll feel similar. Though they're a bit more textured than the Donegals from last year (IIRC).

I was wondering about the jacket sizing as well, e.g. for the Weller sportcoat, the sizing runs like this:

 

 

Sz 38 has a shoulder width of 17" and corresponds to a size Medium in Epaulet shirts, which has a shoulder width of 18"? The chest size is also slightly smaller.

 

 

 

We measure both the shirts and jackets across the front (flat against the collar or lapels, respectively). The shirts measure a touch bigger than jackets in a comparable size. But, obviously, shirts and jackets will fit differently. 

 

Our sizing equation is a general rule, but not a hard and fast one. It, like shoe sizing equations, works for most. If you have an Epaulet/Ashland/Navy Label shirt, you can compare the size charts and most likely figure out what will work. If not, measure out a jacket you own and compare.

I feel I'm best suited to be a flâneur, but life doesn't seem to permit it.

I'll chime in and say that I liked both this fit and the photo of it quite a bit. Stylish without being at all self-consciously so. You look like you are enjoying yourself.

Question for the folks at Epaulet: will there be more factory find jackets in the future? If so, how often do you plan on putting them up?


Oisin,

That was a fantastic look! What jacket were you wearing?
post #18204 of 34841
Any idea when the last batch of Factory Finds trousers will be completed?

thanks. jacket was a vintage fallan and harvey i picked up on etsy for a good price.

you should have seen me and mike that night. he was wearing a baller kiton jacket that had more than a passing similarity to mine in pattern. we looked a bit twinsy when we went out. good thing I wasn't wearing the grape herringbone that day, since Mike was wearing those and I only had brought a few pairs of trousers.

Carmina Salingers and Cranberry Walt:


post #18207 of 34841
^ those cranberry Walts are so rad. I love how they almost look like a standard charcoal trouser from a distance, but you can see the killer pattern up close.

That looks like a great fit on the shoes as well judging by the lack of creasing. I'm wearing my brown Carmina double monks today as well cheers.gif
