post #22066 of 34843

Hey dudes! Just wanted to drop a quick note about the restock we just received:

 

Alden Brown Chromexcel Plain Toe Blucher - $490

That baby would have to be VERY comfortable for me to drop that kind of coin on a monkstrap... biggrin.gif The double-monk would be neat but I am in a rather conservative work environment and I think that shoe looks best in the saddle shell.

I'd be special ordering a small size so both the upcharge and the wait will kill me. crazy.gif

Any advice is appreciated!

There's definitely a good difference between the Alden 966 and the Fitzgerald, but I'd recommend the single monk. It's really fantastic. The design is sharp and it's equally versatile as dress or casual. It'll be radiant in Cognac!

Yes sir. So, I can tell you guys: in the next two weeks we'll introduce our MTO Rivet Chino program. I'm still pricing everything out, but they'll be a few options:

1. Size 26 to 42, with all odd sizes possible
2. All Inseam lengths (anywhere from 28 to 40", by 1" increments)
3. 5-6 different colors of herringbone taping - or no herringbone taping at all
4. Bunch of different pocket options (flaps, coin pocket, welts, etc)
5. Button or zip fly - with a bunch of different buttons to choose from
6. Range of existing cotton fabrics with things like wool flannel and tweed coming on for the Fall.

So this will absolutely be an option. Turnaround will be fast as well - generally 3-4 weeks.

Haha very cool! One big thing to note: the LES is pretty freaking loud and chaotic at night, especially when college is in session. It seems a lot quieter because it's the summertime. Unless you get a really boss deal or a new soundproofed apartment, you might want to look outside of this immediate area. But we'd be happy to have you close by regardless!

Just a follow up question on this - will you be doing MTO Walts as well?

Things like this absolutely blow me away. The lengths Epaulet is willing to go to make that perfect pant (and subsequently perfect retail experience) for any customer astounds me. All power to you. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Hem or cuff?  I just got my first pair of Epaulet trousers, the  Rudy Navy Duck Canvas, and I'm curious as to the conscience regarding cuffing or hemming. I generally hem straight front pants and cuff pleated pants, but am open to suggestions.

post #22073 of 34843
Hello,

That is really up to you. Personally, I *might* add cuffs if it were a heavyweight trouser (e.g. flannel or tweed) and I were going to wear them with substantial shoes or boots. Otherwise, I prefer a hem to the proper length.

Now...if those were Rivet chinos, then your options would be more like hem to length or hem them long and roll them up... but that is a different pair of pants!

+1.   I hardly want to buy retail anywhere else.  This is going to get me into a lot of trouble.  And I just cleaned out my closet to make room for a shoe/boot rack...

Is it possible that this is both the best and worst news I have heard in awhile?

Oh. crap.  I had pretty much switched away from Rivets to Walts because they were easier to dress up, but some of these options sound fantastic...
