I don't find striped trousers versatile at all. They look like the bottom half of a suit to me. Obviously, YMMV.

The pink and periwinkle cords look great.

I don't think shopify can handle the pink trousers.

Who's in for those as a pair of the green Carminas?

I'd love some more standard pants in a Rudy fit.

Just one set of grey Merino wool trousers now, which is great, but still looking for a more versatile Rudy fit pant.  Are there any in storage or elsewhere right now that'd be for sale?

Gasp where are all the size 33 navy Walts!? frown.gif
post #19316 of 31615
so many nice cords, but i already bought 2 pairs in the last couple rounds, both in greens. The periwinkle and ocean are awesome. Dove grey linen is definitely happening for me this time around.

I've always seen collar bands that are rounded or squared-off but have never understood the utility of one over the other. Did you change the spread at all in order to get more roll? It's hard to tell but it looks like it might be slightly farther spread than the old model. Did you increase the tie space?

Well, I don't think that there's a big functional difference beween rounded and squared collar button ends, it's just a stylistic choice. Kind of like rounded, squared, or mitered shirt cuffs.

The main thing that we did was to spread the collar out width-wise. It became a bit shorter and a bit wider. This gives it more room for a tie - especially if you like a 3" or wider size and/or a half windsor or windsor knot.

We first designed the Epaulet buttondown back in 2009, and thinner ties (like Band of Outsiders and such) were the new thing. The original concept was to make a tall, prominent, and mod collar that didn't overpower a skinny-ish tie. Since those days, there's been more interest in traditional width ties and sportcoats among our customers, so I thought that this was a good move. It retains that strong collar that we're known for, but lends itself to being dressed up a bit more - although it can certainly be worn casually without a problem.

 

Gotcha, makes sense. Wider should certainly be better for those larger knots (which i favor myself).

 

I have to say though, the height of the collar was really the selling point for me. Maybe I am in the minority here. I think the new BD looks great; it probably will have a better roll even compared to the earlier one. I'd love to see what it looks like worn under a sport coat, with a tie, and without.

 

But I guess I'm hoping that the taller collar might still have a place in the lineup somewhere. Have you ever considered doing a casual shirt with a 2-button collar, maybe even a cutaway? It would be kind of an English look (which they may have stolen from the Italians) that would really add some "presence" to a casual shirt, that would help out those of us with longer necks. Since you've always been doing sort of an anglo-american vibe, maybe this is something that could fit in somewhere. Of course, you probably can't offer a million collar styles with the smaller runs you do, but I'm just thinking out loud here...
