I know a  few of you guys have been asking when we were restocking the popover. Well, the time has arrived!

 

I think you all know about my love for this shirt. The perfect shirt, in my humble opinion. 

 

Epaulet Cutaway Collar Popover - $150

So for anyone wondering how the MTO club collar button-down option looks, here is my example, in blue pinpoint:

That looks awesone SVB

I haven't even tried it on yet, but I got it with the neck modified down to 14.5 so I should be able to wear it with a tie. Having said that though, the biggest benefit to this collar that I can see so far is that you get a club collar that can be worn sans tie with the collar undone without having the collar flap out and look like floppy dog ears.

 

The blue pinpoint is really nice fabric too. Will assess sleeve length and shrinkage once it's gone through a wash, but juts based on the appearance and hand of the fabric itself it ought to work with a suit & tie while still also working casually, unlike the beefier normal oxfords that IMO are really pushing it when worn with a tie -- I did just that yesterday and I've more or less concluded it just doesn't work (east coasters will likely disagree and/or foam at the mouth upon reading this). Still love those for casual wear though, of course.

Does the cotton/linen streaky chambray fall under the "cold wash hang dry" umbrella?

Got a couple of crucial restocks of trousers and Luchino polos today as well!

 

 

 

Epaulet Walt Trouser Medium Grey Super 120's Wool - $195

 

Epaulet Walt Trouser Navy Irish Linen - $190

 

 

For the Luchino, an XS actually corresponds very well to a small Epaulet woven shirt. The size chart has been adjusted to show the correct scale.

 

Epaulet Luchino Polo Shirt Bordeaux - $135

 

Epaulet Luchino Polo Shirt Navy - $135

This collar defeats the whole purpose of an OCBD though.

the thing that makes the OCBD so great is that beautiful collar roll which epaulet does soooooooo well, better than BB currently which is ironic considering brooks made it so iconic.

Hey guys!

Most of you should have these in your hands already. When the jackets arrived I grabbed some quick shots of as many styles as I could. The color balancing isn't totally on point, but you can see how nicely a lot of these pieces made up. So you can see both parts, I'll post the swatch and then the actual jacket.

Harris Tweed Check



Charcoal Glen Plaid with Purple Accent



Copper Prince of Wales



Cranberry Windowpane



Grey Prince of Wales



Greycast Blue Tropical Wool



Ice Silk-Linen



Navy-Grey Wool-Cashmere



Peat Multi-Check



Tobacco Multi-Guncheck

COMING TO CALIFORNIA NEXT WEEK

Hey everyone!

Adele and I are flying to the West Coast this coming Sunday. We'll be in SF from Sunday through Tuesday, and then LA from Wednesday through Friday.

For SF, I've got a fairly full schedule, but it looks like I'm free on Monday night. If anyone's interested in getting together for some drinks and shooting-the-shit-ing, then let's find a good spot for it!

For Friday the 19th, we made a reservation at the Gorbals restaurant in downtown LA. It's a cool spot, with an open, casual seating plan. If you're interested in coming along to hang with us then drop me an email and let me know! We can probably get a table for up to 10 people.

In preparation for our trip, I grabbed the LBM 1911 double breasted jacket with a quickness. Good lord do I love this thing. It's matched up with our grey wool-cashmere trousers and saddle shell double monks.

Was mentioned in the Alden thread recently, but the level of photography on the site is stunning. TSM has numerous models in brown calfskin but I'm not attracted to any of them because their pics don't do justice at all - which is a completely opposite case with the Taunton captoe boot. Looks brilliant.

I do consider selling my kidney for the "space" indy boot though...
