Not personally, no. Sleeves will hike up on a bike, yes, but I don't think he's wearing that coat on a bike. If it's a daily wear piece, I'd shorten them. Hell, if it was a functional piece I'd still shorten them.

Thanks!

It looks pretty good to me. I can't tell how stff that cowhide is but it looks fairly stiff. Once the jacket breaks in a bit the boxy-ness will go away. If you decide to keep that size, wear it for a while before you have the sleeves shortened (by someone who knows what they are doing). As the sleeves crease and wrinkle, a significant amount of that extra length will disappear and you don't want to over shorten them.

Can I order the Napoli navy Hopsack in 43" and with longer sleeves without going MTO? I like the way the standard one looks, but it seems like 42" is the largest offered size.

Also, if you plan on wearing a sweater underneath, try doing that, it may take care a lot of the boxyness in the arms.

So we'll be able to offer a range of about 10-12 different MTO suiting options this season. We'll have all of the basics covered (navy, charcoal, grey, mid grey) and we can also offer some cool patterns like prince of wales and pinstripes. We'll work to get that online in the next week or so. Lots of great tweeds for MTO work too!

Excellent news. I plan on jumping on an MTO suit as soon as the option is available again. Keep us posted!

What you are describing is exactly what MTO is.

I do realize that, but I have a vague memory of reading about some guy ordering MTO sizes without actually going MTO some pages back.

Well that's sort of like saying "I want to drive on the freeway at freeway speeds but I don't want to go 65mph or faster" but maybe what you are thinking of is Factory Finds? Under that program you can order whatever size you want and there is no MTO upcharge, but I'm not sure if you can tweak things like sleeve length. If that's the case though, you'd have to wait for the next batch of factory find fabrics to show up.

Wow, I grew up in Rock Hill, although I don't live there now. I had no idea there was another Epaulet fan in that area.

Also to Mr. Clemson- are you the same one from TI? I'll be at the CU/UGA game on Sat with my Carminas on (I have 12 pairs now). What a small world.

Absolutely, I'm going to work on all of that this week. We'll see if we can get the first batch up by Friday. There's great stuff in here!

Sorry about that - I think you may be thinking about Factory Finds. When we do those, we're able to offer a range of sizes like 43 Long because we're buying several jackets per fabric. Although you would have to get a Long in body and the sleeves. With individual MTO's, we can do things like a regular body with long sleeves, or vice versa. But yes, outside of that the MTO program is the way to go.

I can't wait until that guy is gone.  He won that game for them last year...take him off that DL, and we win that game.

I'm a South Carolina alum from Florence, just got back from a weekend at Lake Murray - definitely rocked some Epaulet when we went out for dinner. I'm taking my dad to the USC-UNC game Thursday, should be a great game to kick off the college football season! Clowney for Heisman...

As a PAC - 12 alum, it is my duty to say the SEC is overrated.

Wow. I grew up in Rock Hill as well. I left when I was 17 and joined the Marines. I recently moved back here (as in since June) to become Pastor of a church. What age group are you in. I am 32.

Epaulet has a pretty good following in the Palmetto state!
