What causes the bowing? Too much compression?


Thanks for the kind words, dudes!


On the topic of sportscoats, do you guys think coarser materials like duck canvas or cotton in general will be more prone to collar gap?

I have a BK Nets cap, two in fact, one sits atop my living room bookcase! Tough loss last night. The Brooklyn Bushwicks cap from the photo is in fact USA Made, from Ebbetts Field Flannels. Would love Ep to do a cap from them, but I know not too many dudes wear them here, I'm def in the minority.

I don't know about ONLY, but he does seem to have a preference. I think the hat is Ebbets Field Flannels, which is USA made.

Love those shoes. Anything like that available in standard production?

A combination of wrinkles from the packaging, a wonky right shoulder (mine not the jackets), and a poor picture angle are creating the lapel bowing. I'll get a better picture another time, it's not really present.

One of my favorite shops. Authentic is the only word in their vocabulary and stopping by their shop is like stepping into a time capsule. Not trying to sound like a sales rep, but for those with even the slightest interest in baseball history, you'll be wowed by the amount of knowledge these guys have. And in a bit of Hollywood news, these guys were responsible for the uniforms and caps of all the minor league teams in the movie, "42". Great stuff!

I have a few. Just got a few of their new eight panel caps, which is an interesting throwback style.

Suede looks so good broken in. Very nice.
post #20200 of 37568

Hey guys, I've been following this thread for a while and have become very enthusiastic about upgrading my wardrobe as a result. After a bit of thought about choosing my first sportcoat I think i've decided I'd like go for a tan color rather than a navy one. I guess I'm looking for thoughts on this decision, as I know Navy is supposed to be the go to color if you have only one.

 

I looked at picture comparisons between the new Napoli Caramel Duck Canvas coat(which i'm excited about) and the various walt and rivet pants I have or are on the way and I think tan will work better in combination with all of them pretty much. I also think part of it is Navy seems a little too 'dressy' at this point for me. Tan or "Caramel" just suits me better I think.

 

 

btw, here's my current selection, on the way and WTB choices: 

Walts: FF tropical taupe fleck trousers, Caramel Duck canvas, Merino wool cadet grey, olive moleskin, juniper and elderberry linen, regiment twill moss

Rivets: canvas navy, blue oxford cloth, Plum duck, FF cotton/cashmere twill Clay, Goldenrod and Slate Blue

 

For context, I'm turning 30 and I usually fall into the "hipster look" category. I rent apartments for work and don't dress up too much. The office dress code is more casual than business- jeans and collared shirts. I've always been into wearing a bit of color- Levi's 510 "skinny" color jeans, old thrift store polos, white or pastel OCBD shirts, and tan or pale colored London Fog Ricky style jackets. Anyway, my style choices continue to evolve and I'm just really glad I found Epaulet. The quality, fit and colors are just fantastic. 

 

 

I did notice that the pictured color of the caramel duck canvas sportcoat is different from those of the caramel Walts and Rivets. I'm guessing this is due to the pants being shot in the sunlight vs. the coat being shot indoors..? Is the coat the color of the pictures of the pants? Are they indeed made of identical fabric?

I believe it is intended to be Suit seperates and is indeed the same.  I have the Carmel Duck Rivet's and the pants picture color is more accurately portrayed

Love this. How did you process the film? My local camera store burned down (literally).

Haha to be honest, I didn't even expect the pictures to be any decent, it was my first time using the camera and film in general so I didn't know what to anticipate. As a result I just took them to CVS for the one hour develop and asked for them to be put on a cd for me rather than print them out.

I'd still suggest you go to Navy with the sportcoat. I'd go hopsack, and maybe even forego a couple of the trousers to grab the duck Napoli instead. You 'll always be better overdressed for a situation than under, and like me, it seems your work "dress code" is whatever...so take advantage of that and dress it up if you're comfortable with it. You won't want to wear the same sportcoat everyday either, so I highly recommend getting the two, especially if your heart is set on the brown. Nothing is more versatile than the navy blazer.

Me today in my Air Force (god damn it why do I still need to wear these) flannels and the Ruby captoe (which fits much better on the second wear):
