At $25 each, I am extremely happy with the shirts. I think they will work with my style quite nicely smile.gif

Hey there. I'd like to ask about the Carmina Snuff Suede loafers.

 

I need a pair of loafers for summer, need to be able to be beaten up, worn at the beach, get a little wet. Will these do the trick, or should I go for something leather?

 

Cheers

Foxy.

If I've had an order unfulfilled since thursday, should I just assume it's not going to be fulfilled?

^ Before assuming that, you should first email contact at epauletnewyork.com

Or call--calling often is the most direct way. Why assume anything?

Any ETA on the selvedge Smith denim jean? I'm getting tired of wearing my crappy old Gap selvedge, and I'm holding off on trying any other high end brands until Epaulet releases their denim!

Also, to all the denim heads out there - is it possible to tailor the waist on denim? Most of the time, I have trouble finding jeans that fit in the waist without being too tight on my thighs. For all my Rivets and Rudys, I size up and take the waist in. I'm sure it would be a much different job to do this for denim compared to my EP chinos and trousers, but I don't know enough about denim construction to know if it's even possible.

In general, taking in the waist of a pair of denim is not usually possible. The waistband isn't split like your typical trouser, and deconstructing the yoke, etc. can be very difficult. I've never personally seen it done, at least.

I'm getting ready for a new pair of denim too and have been looking into things like the 3Sixteen SL100 or the Rogue Territory Stanton. But an Epaulet 5-pocket denim with rivet proportions would be ideal, even with a slightly larger waist.

Cool thanks for the info. I generally wear denim with slightly slimmer cuts in the thigh anyway, so hopefully these will work out for me once they're released.

I have taken in the waist on my APC NC a bit and I found no issues with it. The denim was not a heavy weight though.


Weather is funky today...bedford cord.

check out Baldwin denim for those of you not interested in waiting for the Epaulet. I'm sure I'll get shit for it, but most of the "heritage" American denim producers use Cone Mills denim which, frankly, isn't that great of quality. I've never had a pair of jeans, regardless of brand, that use cone mills that didn't have a crotch blow out within 6 months. Baldwin uses Kurabo which, at least in my experience, is far superior to cone mills. Even A.P.C. crappy chinese milled denim lasts longer than cone. the two best denim brands in terms of VALUE (meaning, price, longevity, and availability) are baldwin and 3sixteen. no question.

I'm in the same boat as your w/ the Rudy's and RC's and I've found the 3sixteen CS-100 cut fits me quite well. It's fuller in the thigh and also has a higher rise than their other jeans.

This is great to hear. I just barely found out about that cut last night and have been hunting a bit. Thanks for the confirmation though.

Sadly my favourite shoe purchase to date doesn't quite fit. I've tried them on a few times now and they're just too snug and I don't want to risk breaking them in with the hope they'll stretch. Blows.

I emailed Mike about the pair that were available in UK 9/US 10. Told him I wear the following:

In Carmina Salinger double monks I'm a 10

In the Alden for Epaulet Natural Chromexcel Longwing I'm a 10.5

In Allen Edmonds Strand I'm an 11

In Chucks I'm a 10.5

He said that most guys take the same size in the Inca and the Forest last, and would drop a full size from the AE Strand.

They do fit and are a touch snug but I suspect they'll break in nice once they soften up. The leather is so nice.

I've had loads of jeans taken in from when I was heavier and first started to lose weight. Its only possible to a certain point, otherwise the pockets get too close together. It also needs a tailor skilled, and willing enough to do it. I find the first criteria more easily met than the second.
