How crucial is it to nail the shoulder fit on an unstructured jacket given that there's no padding to stick out? Will it look droopy if it's too wide? Thanks in advance for any advice.

 

I think it depends on how much wider the shoulders are than what is ideal for you.  I have a couple of the LBM 1911 SC's and they are both about an inch wider in the shoulders than what is ideal for me.  But I think they look fine.  However, any more than an inch or maybe 1.5", might be too much and as you say, might look droopy.

 

I do like the LBM 1911 blazers very much and recommend them.

To echo others: I love EP's Large shirts - they're very fitted. I take a 41 in EP jackets. Any larger and I would likely size up on shirts. At a 42 otr, I would believe an XL would work out best for you in shirting.

Spiewak N3-B snorkel parka secured tonight. And lots of other temptation - especially the new denim and some TBA stuff. smile.gif Thanks Mike - can't wait for it to get cold enough for this coat (again)!

Agree with all this. Same experience.

I ordered the Mocha Flannel a couple days back, tracking said it arrived in Bell Gardens CA. I was curious where that was so I googled it. Turns out the post office there had a one star rating. I clicked. Half an hour and countless reviews latter I learn that hundreds of others have had packages, delayed, lost, or possibly stolen from this location. A local reporter claimed to be investigating. One man ordered boots, his package arrived opened with a previously worn completely different pair of shoes. Someone traded up I guess. Dozens had sought to rectify their situations with USPS, none with success. Hopeful that internet reviews always exaggerate I checked the ratings of a few local post offices. Nothing of the like. 

I fear for my shirt. Anyone else ever have a package come through there?

For those that don't normally venture outside this thread, but may be interested, I just finished my massive Tahoe New Years 13 post in WAYWT. Some Epaulet items are featured, including the barely visible blue OCBD shown above. And yes, there are plaid pants.

I live in L.A. and pretty much all my stuff is routed through Bell Gardens. I've yet to have an incident. I don't know how many orders I've placed at this point (more than I can count on my hands and probably toes) and I've received everything in perfect condition.

Hey Mike,

 

I dropped you guys an e-mail yesterday about some stitching issues I've experienced on some rivet chinos.  I usually get a super fast response (from Adele, typically) and I'd really like some feedback.

 

Thanks!

Can I ask when Rivets in caramel duck are getting restocked?

If you're in the USA you may consider calling them too. Really friendly folks. I actually have their numbers stored on my cell phone.

I think based on his earlier post about the southwick swatches that Mike is on a plane from NY to LA today.

Yeah I get at least a package through there once a week (probably ~100 total) and never an issue

I see Mike being handcuffed to a briefcase that is holding the swatches while traveling.
