Hey, do you think you guys are ever going to do the Carmina suede chukka? A Swedish company, has them, and they look awesome.

I would have preferred a 38R vest but 40 was left. I may tailor it for a slightly slimmer fit.

First post in this thread, though I've been bugging Mike and crew at the Manhattan shop for months now.  Here's a shot of me today wearing my Carmina Salinger double monks in burgundy shell cordovan.  It's been with me for a few months now, and I haven't had to take much care of it except for a few wipedowns when little scuffs or water stains would appear.  Patina settling in, I think.

Might be looking to by a pair of Horsehide No. 542 Work Oxford boots. Any thoughts/live pictures for these?

thanks

Thanks, gents.

Always. We generally have the Caramel Calf, Chocolate Calf, and Snuff suede ones on order to restock every 2-3 months. Shell ones come and go too, but a little bit infrequently, as they depend more on the availability of the leather.

I think these were called Asapragus or such in a Factory Finds round. Sort of feel as if the hem on these ended up neither here nor there, at least with the shoes pictured. Oh well.

Both fabrics are outstanding, which really goes without saying.

Very nice - both fits are really sharp!

Definitely going to need to get a couple more pairs of these for summer I think.

Fantastic! Drop Matt a line if you have any questions on the other fabrics when you're ready for the next pair.

Hey Mike, any new shorts coming soon?

Not too soon. I imagine that our first shorts will arrive around late April. We'll do some fun ones this time around. And we'll do a factory finds round in March that will have a lot of summerish fabrics, any of which can be made into shorts.

Very cool. The Filson bag jives really nice with this look too.

I'd recommend the Manhattan store for anything BUT Alden. We generally stock more Aldens in Brooklyn. We stock more of everything else in Manhattan.

I'll all for this! You LA guys are some of the best dressed customers that we have anywhere. Kick ass with it!

Everyone, I have a question about sizing Epaulet's Southwick for Michael Kuhle sportcoats. I have a size 40 Caine in hopsack which is a good slim fit, slightly tight in the shoulders. Looking at Epaulet's measurements, the 40 should have a 17.5" shoulder, but my jacket is exactly 18". This barely fits, as my shoulders measure out to 18"; I normally wear a 42 and get things tailored.

Did I get lucky and just get a "big" 40? For the next sportcoat/jacket I purchase, should I size up to 42 and expect to send the jacket out to get taken in? Thanks.

We're measuring the shoulders from the rear, and I'm taking 17.5" by measuring from one shoulder seam to the other. Although measuring from the physical end of one shoulder to the other will give you 18" To be on the safe side, you may consider doing a 41 or 42, especially in the factory finds jackets that are all cut to order.

I've got a lot of PM's regarding the jacket fit, as a lot of first-time customers are interested in the factory finds. Overall the fit works really good for the majority of our customers. If you're in doubt, look through the thread at the guys posting fit pics - everyone here is in our general 'pattern." The shoulders and armholes are meant for a guy with a slim to athletic build and they jive very well with the kind of shirts and trousers that we offer. If you lift some weights, play some sports, and generally fit into slimmer tailored clothing then these are going to work. If your shoulders are too broad or your arms or too big for our jackets, then you're going to know it. Chances are you have a hard time fitting into most slim jackets without sizing up. If you're on the fence with a factory find, then going up one inch is pretty safe. If the resulting jacket is a bit big, then taking something in one inch should be no problem for a tailor.

It's a medium weight tweed. Around the weight of a proper Fall flannel. Nothing too crazy, but would be great for Canada.

Not too often. I think that we'll be able to swing Southwick Factory Finds 2-3 times a year. We'll definitely do another round in late July, but if I can get my hands on fabrics for an April-May round, I'll try to do that too. This round was a runaway success! Thanks to everyone who ordered!

Should be about 1-2 weeks. I believe that they're going to finish cutting everything this weekend.

Yowza, those look great! I have the same pair, and they're my favorite shoes in my collection.

Have all the Factory Finds sportscoats sold out? Is the website an accurate reflection of what's still available?
post #18218 of 31125
It started out as a joke, but LA folks...you guys wanna meet up sometimes for lunch and do a photo opt? There's provably at least 7 of us on the thread. Just wear something Epaulet for the pics!

Nope, there's still 14 fabrics left to choose from. We started out with about 29 in total. Here's the current list - they're available to order until this Sunday:

You guys should definitely do this!

Have your meetup at Pann's Diner near LAX, order their waffles, and officially make me the most jealous person on earth for not being there.

I figured there's a reason why you put the shoe front and center on the website's landing page. :)

 

I really love this pair - and actually they're fairly low maintenance as far as scuffs etc go.  Saphir Reno works wonders of course.

Yes it is, we had a few customers do this. It's pretty straightforward and you shouldn't see any marks left on a flannel or tweed jacket.
