Epaulet Point Collar Denim Work Shirt - $110

 

You don't have to tell me twice. Instakopped.

In the mirror, I noticed that the gauntlet buttons were in noticeably different positions, one sleeve seemed a bit short and the collar looked crooked, so I got to work inspecting the shirt.  

 

Upon further inspection I have discovered that the sleeves 3/16" different in length.  A small amount, but the shorter sleeve happens to be on my longer arm.  With the sleeve plackets and cuffs lined up, it is easy to tell that one gauntlet button is off center (lengthwise) by 1/2."  Also, the darts are each a different length, a different shape, and in a different location.  The sewing on the darts seems sloppy to me.  I could find little evidence that the collar was crooked, except that the collar stays were sewn in at different angles.

 

I realize that my inspection may be a bit excessive.  However, yesterday, I found a hole in the fabric of my hopsack trousers.  I noticed this, literally, within the first 4 hours of wear.  The pants have seen no trauma or abuse.

 

I'm a bit new to all of this, so I don't know how much variation should be expected.  I think that some of these things may be within the appropriate tolerances, but some seem pretty questionable.

To follow up, the shop informed me that the variations in the shirt are considered normal and should be expected on MTO shirts.  They did offer to refund the shirt, so I may either return it or have it made into a short sleeve shirt.  If these can be made without the gauntlet buttons, I would probably try again without the buttons or the darts.

How do I tell if a guy is good at doing darts?  I have had some trouble getting them done locally, but the place I tried will at least redo them as many times as needed to get them approximately symmetric.  I would like to get some other shirts darted, but don't want to deal with the hassle again.

Did anyone else here pick up the Sky Exploded Check FF shirt? After a cold water wash and line-dry, mine seems to have shrunk significantly more than my other Epaulet shirts. I'm wondering if it's something inherent to the fabric.

post #20870 of 34732
Still haven't really received an answer to this question, but what is the difference between the steep twill and the regimental twill?

I did but I didn't experience much/any shrinkage after a cold wash and hang dry.

If I recall correctly I believe that the Steep is heavier or rather a better cold weather trouser.

The steep twill is significantly thicker than the regiment twill and is pretty much for cold weather only.

This is a fantastic color. Great job. Possible matching MTO jacket on the horizon?

I've got 4 pairs of Walts and I'd hate to have to sell them because they no longer fit frown.gif .

Yup, it's very easy to let the Walt thighs out to approximately Rudy dimensions. If you've worn the pants a lot, then it might be visible (though probably not) on a wool pair, but will almost surely be visible on a cotton pair. That said, having a visible alteration line is better than not being able to wear the trousers at all. I'd definitely advise trying it on one wool pair and seeing how you like the result.

Should be soon - a few weeks or so. The 5-pocket canvas rivet jeans are coming shortly as well.

Non sequitur, for some reason, looking close-up at the smoke chambray swatch--in my head I'm imagining a MTO jacket to match with a Napoli shoulder. A little rumpled, broken in, lightweight suit. Maybe paired with double monks, no socks, Matt-style. Would that look good, or is that crazy?

Haha, not crazy at all. I think that would be boss! Sadly, we're out of that smoke chambray fabric, but I like the way that you think.

Will these babies ever be back in stock in 32, 33 or 34?

I believe that our last linen delivery will be the last one for the season, so I don't see that natural getting restocked, but the new "Steel" Irish linen might be the ticket for you.

OK, I'm back to my usual Rudy decision time and I need some help again....I will probably get 2 pairs this time, thinking of the navy linen (it's super hot and humid here now, I desperately need a good pair of linen pants) and the grey hopsack, since I need a staple year-round grey trouser. Makes the most sense for what I need, but should I go for something like the Nori tropical since it won't be around as long?

Something tells me I should only buy what I absolutely need, stick to staples for now, and then branch out later. Maybe the Nori will be gone by then, but there might be something else just as unique coming out.

On the other hand, I would like to get something that I will wear often. I think the burgundy hopsack and the nori are sufficiently versatile to satisfy both desires.

Navy linen has been our best-selling linen trouser, and it really can't be beat for versatility. That one is really easy.

In terms of a second pant, Nori is rad, but grey hopsack will certainly be more easily worn and matched. If you have to choose one or the other than I would vote for Grey Hopsack.

Great! I'm really glad that you're so pleased with them! We're going to try and organize the next round of Rivet Chino FF's in a few weeks. I was blown away with how nice this batch came out. And if you ever want to special order a size 35 then you can always email us - we can do that in any of the existing fabrics for the same price. Since we have regular monthly deliveries of chinos, it's very easy and fast to accomodate sizes that we don't typically run. We make about a dozen of them each month.

$110 Shirts

Matt posted this up earlier, and I just wanted to point out how excited we are for these. As always, we're very conscious of offering good values with the items that we release and I want to ensure that we're building out great options on both sides of the pricing curve.

We bought these fabrics in bulk (chambrays, seersuckers, denims) and saved a bit on the cloth, so we were able to price the finished shirts at $110 - which is less expensive than any shirt we've ever released. I'm really excited about this line, and we're going to actively build out this price point in the future.

The denim shirt is especially rad! I'm in love with it. We've got plenty more cloth and I'm going to place a reorder tomorrow. About half of our on-hand inventory sold through in the past few hours. So if you miss your size in that, a restock is coming relatively quickly. Would you guys be interested in a black denim shirt too?
post #20878 of 34732

Yes! Yes! Yes!  Finally trousers in 31!  Any chance that you will begin to stock other walts in 31?  Nori, carmel or linen for instance?  32 rivets are perfect and I imagine that 31 walts should fit a bit better than my 32s.

Any possibility you could run these in an Button down? And +1 for black denim.

Oh yes, I meant to mention that!

By popular demand, ALL Walt trousers will be made in size 31 from here on in. Nori and Caramel will be restocked in the next month or so and we'll bring in 31's for both. Linen won't be restocked, but you can special order a single unit in Navy, Red, or Orange (we've got more cloth on all three) if you like. Just email us to get that rolling.
