I just measured a pair and the front rise is 10.25". The rear rise is 12.25". Always feel free to drop me a PM, email or give the stores a shout any time you need quick help.

HOLY SHIT. It bums me out to think that you guys were killing some karaoke (and, if I had to guess, plenty of whiskey!) and I'm 3000 miles away. Hope everyone that came out had a great time!

THANK YOU FOR THE REMINDER!

 

BEFORE/AFTER CONTEST

 

After long-last, we're thrilled to announce the finalists of our Before/After 2013 contest! Each of these pics represents a "style evolution" from before we were all obsessed with shirts, trousers, shoes, and jackets. 

 

You can vote for as many entries as you like. The poll will close this Saturday. One winner will be chosen here. The other will be chosen by a random drawing - thereby giving everyone who entered an equal chance to winner. The two finalists will both receive an extremely boss pair of special makeup windowpane linen trousers - right in time for the Summer to start. 

 

Huge thanks again to everyone who participated! It was a lot of fun, and it served as an inspiration for all of us!

 

The thread is here: PEEP THE AWESOMENESS!

Thank you a lot!

Has the cut of the Rivets changed drastically in the last year?
My ~one year old pair of size 29 (still with horn buttons) has a 8.625 front- and a 15.75 back rise each measured from the crotch (where front and back as well as the inside seams of the legs join).

Awesome stuff, Rob.

 

PS, I saw a picture of you with a huge beard, somewhere on SF, from way back.

 

Don't ever do that again.

 

:-D

Hey guys,

We're having another wonderful day of soaking up California sunshine. Dear everyone in San Francisco: we are extremely jealous of your myriad wonderful coffee options and polite taxi drivers.

Regarding buttons and any other small snafu's that might happen with our clothing:

1. We're always grateful to get feedback on our garments, both positive and negative.

2. Buttons are - in particular - a concern for brands like us. Most small-scale factories have either entirely handsewn or simple machine-stitched buttons. In garments like the Hardie cardigan, every single button is stitched by hand. While buttons falling off our clothing is a pretty rare thing, it can happen. They're attached by people, and people do make mistakes from time to time.

I personally sympathize with the frustration when a button comes off. It's a pain in the ass to get them fixed. But it's not really a reflection on the overall quality of the item, as it's a product of the handwork on your garment. The most pricey thing that I own is a Kiton sportcoat - where each button is sewn on by hand. I had the center button of my jacket fall off after the second wear.

That said, just because it's somewhat normal (however infrequent it is), that doesn't make it acceptable. I wasn't happy paying for the Kiton jacket to have its button repaired, even if it's cheap and easy to do. If you ever have a small snafu on an new or recent epaulet garment, then drop us an email. As a policy, we'll reimburse you for the cost of a small repair from your local tailor. This includes buttons falling off, seam failures, fabric fraying. We can't ensure that these things never happen, but we do stand behind our garments and work with customers to ensure that the problems are fixed and that they're satisfied.

I'll have to disagree with you on that one, I think that he's wearing the camo's really well there.

Haha, yes, and you can add these to the list:

"I'm A Flirt" - R.Kelly
"Slow Hand" - Pointer Sisters
"Suddenly, Seymour" - Little Shop of Horrors
"Party Up in Here" - DMX

Wow. We really sang a foolish lineup of music last night. I'd fully recommend that karaoke spot to any SF residents. It's fantastic, especially the "Osaka" room.

For some reason the infrared version does not seem to suffer from this very minor issue. Don't know if anyone else has noticed this

Thanks for picking them up! Mercerized cotton attracts lint by its very nature, but I've found that cold wash/hang dry and the occasional pass of a lint roller keeps it under control. If your machine has a delicate setting, you might consider using that and washing it with similar knit garments or on its own.

It's a bit of the trade off against a standard cotton pique. Regular cotton tends to dull with wash and wear and start to look beaten in. Mercerized cotton keeps its shape and that moderate sheen, but it will attract lint through a wash cycle if you put it with things like jeans, chinos, towels, etc..

  • Regiment Twill Trouser Khaki - 8 oz canvas like below, but in a "dress pant" style

  • Duck Canvas - heavier and thicker canvas than the 8 oz.

Regiment twill is a tough, basic twill fabric. I'd say that it's closest to the traditional "khaki" pant that we all know.

Canvas is a bit more casual and significantly softer and lighter.

Duck canvas is heavier and rougher. It has a fairly open weave so it breathes quite well

Haha, I imagine that you could have jumped right in to our assortment of show tunes, forgotten 80's smooth jams, and profane hip-hop.

+1.  At first I didn't notice it wasn't all backdrop!  Great outfit.

 

I just found this thread, although I've been eyeing Alden and Carmina collabs on the Epaulet site for ages.  I am now on my 2nd pair of rivet chinos. Just love 'em. I'm eyeing one of the sportcoats now but am still struggling with the prices.   I know I don't need another thread to destroy my pocketbook like the Alden and AE threads have done but...

Just bought a ton of stuff in separate orders. It's all incredible.

If I have a little bit of room (but not much, and not after wash/dry) in the medium flannel and oxford, should I go with a 36 or 38 jacket?

Also, would the caramel carminas work well with the dark navy of the super 120s?

Wj4, Sharp as always! Looks like you tapered your Walts to about a 7" opening, am I right?
