Mike does that mean the MTO's should be around shortly? Can't wait for mine!

Been a huge, huge fan of Epaulet trousers for a long time, but I'm thinking about taking the plunge into the sports coats. Question: How structured is the shoulder in the Caine jacket compared to the Napoli? I live in San Francisco, so I can't exactly try it on, but I'm trying to decide between the two. Also, is the only difference between the Weller and the Caine the ticket pocket? Thanks!

I called EP this morning and asked the same question. Adele explained that the Caine, Napoli and Weller have the same fit. The Caine and Weller both have the "natural" padded shoulder. The Napoli has an unconstructed soft shoulder. The Weller is fully lined, whereas the Caine and Napoli are 3/8 lined.

I hope this helps!

Which would wear cooler for a summer blazer; Napoli in duck canvas or wool hopsack?

wj4, do you get feedback here or IRL about your color and pattern mixing? Personally, I think you do a good job. I can't recall seeing a mix you've put together that clearly doesn't work.

Basically, I just like the trad ivy design and since I got it as a gift, I feel comfortable wearing it. the offical yale ones come in cream body and navy Y and navy body with a white Y, both trad and cool and match a ton of my epaulet gear. Note if you wanted to get one, the sizing is weird, I'm 5' 9.5" and 140 and wear a XS
To my untrained eye they did a decent job. Good recommendations and I would def be interested in a little group of analog photo styleforumer's if there is the demand! Looking to spend a lot more time shooting film this summer.

That sweater is very trad, and makes for a great look particularly with the vintage feel of those shots. I can see why you enjoy wearing it.

And you guys have me browsing film cameras on eBay. Crazy what you can get for $100, though I suppose film and processing will eventually add up. Anyone have thoughts on vintage rangefinders? Seems like something a little different. Tempted to try one out.

And I don't know if that sounds familiar to you guys but.. when you're used to getting below-the-average service, and then someone treats you like a king, you may feel almost overwhelmed and even a bit embarrassed (I mean it in a good sense) - at least that's the case for me. I know we all are already privileged here with the special refund policy, getting the first peek at everything etc., but what Mike did for me this time went miles beyond my expectations - and really I wasn't waiting for a miracle to come since I was my own enemy in my situation. Thank you, Mike! 

And sorry for sounding melodramatic lookaround.gif

 

Good lookin' out.  I have been waiting to pull the trigger on this one for a while now.  Thanks.

These mail order places send you free postage-paid mailers. It's more pricey and you have to wait a bit, but they'll give you pro-level processing at a pretty reasonable price. If there's any SF members in New York, then our lab is Luster on Ave A and 7th street. Good price, great service. Hell, if we get a little group of analog photo styleforumer's, then I can negotiate a group price discount. Seriously. Film photography was my full-time job for seven years.

Very nice. I had my asshole grandfather's Minolta rehabbed, but I am such a novice with it, and processing gets expensive quickly. I have all the goodies with it, though.

Link is to my tumblr, which has pics he took with the camera as a commissioned photographer during the building of the Tappan Zee Bridge.

agree that the sweater is cool.

Same re: cameras since my poor nikon FG I have had since high school is all broken down at this point. I think a rangefinder would be fun, but then I would just want a Leica and those are not cheap! I do plan to get a Fuji x100s soon -- looks like a range finder but digital, and is supposed to be pretty great. And I will replace my stolen 7D with a 6D I think. Maybe if people are into this film thing I'll pick up an old Nikon FE or something. Or we can be really baller and go medium format film? I love those big negatives.

I know we just finished the last contest but it now occurs to me that 35mm would make an awesome challenge for the next one. It sounds like a few of us shoot 35mm already and those that don't could always just get a disposable camera for $10 or whatever they are these days -- and I've seen plenty of good creative stuff done with just a disposable camera, too. Mike would be in good place to judge who the finalists would be since his prior career (one of them) was as a photographer. We'd need a longer lead time in order to get shots taken and film processed, but that shouldn't be a big deal. We'd probably want a rule against any digital post-processing work, but if someone has a lab and wanted to do something creative like compositing images or whatever (aka "analog photoshop"), I wouldn't hold that against them...

So much of my money is going to go your way this fall, dammit..chelsea boots and more oxfords.

I dropped into the Orchard Street store tonight to try on a few things.  Had a sport coat in mind, but walked out with one of the new motorcycle jackets in chestnut brown.  It's boss as hell.  Thanks for keeping the shop open late for me, Mike.

Pics! I saw the teaser mike posted recently, but some more shots would be great to see. That thing looks unreal, and is exactly the type of leather jacket I've always wanted.
