Those are two of my faves...not horrible decisions at all, especially once it starts getting a little warmer!

May try to sell at some point and re-order. On the recent factory finds jackets I was deciding between a 40 and 41 and ended up with the 41 (in extra long). I wish I had known a bit more about my sizing and how different companies size coats when I first ordered -- I have plenty of coats with 17.5 and 18" shoulders that fit fine now. 17" on the 38 is just a bit narrow and it took some work to get the chest right on it too. Anyway, I would say start with the shoulder. If you have a coat that fits you well, measure the shoulders. I have a feeling a 40 will be right for you but really depends on your build. If you are ordering custom anyway (long or extra long) you can specify in between sizes (so a 39, 41, etc) to dial it in.

Thanks for the input. I'm leaning towards 40, too, but just thought I'd put it out there!

Received my first Epaulet shipment today.  Bought a few staples, Navy and Stone Sanded Canvas Slim Walts.  Could not be happier. I have a feeling this is going to snowball in a similar fashion to my now significant Alden, um, problem. 


Tried to put together a suit, with the Weller and the 120's Walt trousers as well, but it looks like I am going to have to go the special order route on the Jacket.  Wouldn't have ordered any of it if it wasn't for the 14 day return window for SF members. 


Anyways, always looking for recommendations, if anyone has any particular EP staple items in their regular rotation that you suggest I take a look at, let me know and I will check them out.

I know you guys have the duck canvas in navy in the Walt cut, but any chances of it ever being used on the Rivet chino? Love the toughness of my caramel ducks and the fit and rise of the Rivet is exactly what I was looking for.

On another note, I was looking to pick up Oboy's Purple Herringbone shirt but just based on measurements, I think I'm right inbetween an L and an XL in the Epaulet shirt line. For reference, a medium in the regular fit of J. Crew shirts fits me perfectly (even with their inconsistent sizing) and their slim line is a bit too tight for me.
 I think the Epaulet line may border the slim fit of J. Crew per what I've read. Anyone else that wears a J. Crew medium chime in on their sizing experience with the different shirts Epaulet offers? That's partially why I was hesitant on ordering some of the FF. Maybe the Navy label is what I have to stick to?

Thanks! Yes and no on the navy duck, we're going to release a stone washed navy duck canvas rivet chino with a small twist in the design. Should drop in about 4-6 weeks.

And most guys who wear J.Crew shirts end up sizing up one for Epaulet. You could buy the same size in Navy Label.

Hmm, I don't have that exact shirt in the works, but stay tuned, we've got about 10 new shirts going live in the next 2 days. Might be something else that you dig in there.

I have a couple west is dead chinos and I am a perfect 32 on those. Does anyone have both to compare? I'm usually a 34 on most other brands.

Gitman Vintage I am a perfect L. Should I size up for the house brand? I wear a M for J crew as well, I know someone mentioned them for comparison.

Thanks in advance. Love this stuff.

Thank you. For the chinos, I'd recommend measuring the rear waistband to get an idea of sizing. Provided you can normally wear slim-ish pants and jeans, then the legs will most likely work for you.

For shirts, our Ashland Large is going to spot on. Those are made by Gitman Brothers with a slightly modified version of the Vintage fit. In mainline Epaulet shirts, you'd wear a Large or XL, but most likely an XL.

No, they're definitely a true olive, there's no brown cast to them.

I'm 6'3" ~175lbs. I typically buy Large Epaulet shirts, but sometimes wash/hot dry them to get them down a little for a really good fit. I think I'm just a little between an M and L. Ashland label size Medium fits me great.

Is the 40 going to be my best bet w/ a little tailoring in the body vs. the 38? Of course, always variations but looking for some input.


I'd put you into a 40R jacket. I can wear an Epaulet large, but I need to special order a 41 jacket. You might need to tailor the coat a bit to really dial it in, but I imagine that the 40 will give you a pretty solid fit straight off the rack.

Also, will you guys be redoing the denim from a couple season back? I suspect not, but I am really loving those jeans and they are starting to get a little worn and would love to replace them. Thanks again for being such a kick ass business!

Thank you sir! We've got two new Ashland shirts going up in the next day or two. Some killer patterns in there.

And for the denim, I've got a little something up my sleeve. I'm just waiting for the fabric to be delivered. It won't be exactly what we did before, but will be a really unique piece. We're planning a release date around May.

Yup, going to work on them tonight and put them up as they're finished.

Is it just me or has the cut of the rivet chinos changed a fair bit? The calves are looser and legs a fair bit longer in my newest pair (purchased a month or so ago), compared to a pair I bought nearly a year ago. I prefer the 'newer' fit.
post #19043 of 56878
I thought just the length increased a bit.

Also, what are the slimmest shirts that Epaulet carries?

compared to a year ago, then i believe the answer is yes.
