Dude, you posted this only 8 hours ago...chill.

If you want fast and for sure help, look into getting a proxy. Note that it won't be for free.

Howlin' Again and MTO Carmina "Gangs of NY" boots and Epaulet Belt. That thing lives in those jeans and rarely gets a peek, but with the vest today I get to show it off a bit!

NYI, Are those Somets? The stitching looks like it. If so, how do you like them? Between them and a pair of PBJ's

Is return shipping free for Epaulet? 

post #26557 of 32683
No, you pay return shipping

I LOVE them. Been beating the hell out of them this fall/winter. Wearing them constantly, not a soak yet. Bought them last January and they started out pretty tight, but now fit like a second skin. Back pocket stitching is starting to unravel, but like I said, they've been beat to hell...I'm starting think about a soak...maybe on their first birthday.

Looking good, Rob.

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?

Another Bell Gardens post: I had a Media Mail (non-Ep) package come through there recently and it absolutely dropped off the map for a week. However, it *did* reappear one week later in a sort facility in Jersey City, NJ (near NYC where I live). So perhaps you're one of the unlucky few like me to experience a slight delay. It should be fine, though.
post #26561 of 32683

I just got it the other day, luckily no delay. Once again I learn listening too closely to the internet it a bad thing, who knew? All that said the mocha flannel is delightful, I'm looking forward to future wears.

Thanks! Much appreciated. Drives me crazy BiG won't do a refund if sizing doesn't work as I wabt to try the Somets and PBJ XX13's. Will have to wait till the next time I'm down from Beantown.

Sorry for non EP post... Bring on the dark grey Wilshires!!!

The navy is very dark and the calf is very soft.

The burgundy dress belt is more matte than color 8, but hitting it with a little polish or conditioner could help it shine up a bit. It's a good match, not perfect, but we sell a ton of them to guys looking for a #8 belt.

For the MTO, will they have access to some of the fabric you guys have had on hand...like the sunwashed chambrays?

 

And are they going to do the normal seasonal drops of shirts?  When is that coming btw...?

 

They will be doing a good bit of it. I'm not 100% certain if we'll offer that exact chambray, but we'll have a ton of options. We'll have a lot more incoming than we did with just the Ashland line from Gitman Bros. Stay tuned.

I'm the same way in that the size 40 jackets are near perfect on me. Medium shirts fit me really well, but are a little snug. If I size up to L, though, they are looser than I'd like, and a little long to wear untucked, but still totally wearable. (length is an easy tailor fix, too).

So, it's a little but dependent on your build, and also the neck thing...if you really need them to be spot on for wearing ties, then perhaps you go XL, esp if you have broad shoulders or a muscular chest. Otherwise, L would like be a nice slim fit.

 

If a 42 Southwick jacket fit well with a little tailoring (waist suppression, bringing in the chest a touch, etc), I would say a large shirt would probably. If the 42 fits basically perfect OTR, I would go with an XL. I think it will yield a trim/tailored fit, but not be restrictive. Worst case scenario, you could have the shirt altered a bit if it were too small. However, I'm pretty sure it will be a damn good fit.

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

 

LBM jackets, and unstructured as a whole, are meant to drape. The shoulder (and chest) measurements are a bit deceptive, as jackets of this nature don't fit like your Southwicks of the world. I would say that if you've owned any of our sportcoats in a 38, the 48 LBM should be a good fit for you. It sometimes depends on how your proportions run, but if you're a 38-39 jacket normally, the sizing should work well for you. 

 

And I'll echo what others have said, once you start wearing these, a lot of other sportcoats will likely be put on the backburner. They're truly a unique, Italian product that is a joy to wear.

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.

:teach:

I can't offer a definite, but should be some time in the next 4-6 weeks. I believe we put in a reorder a couple of weeks ago.

If you didn't almost always have a smile, I would think you were coming to a street brawl.:fistbump:

Factory Finds!

Got the final stock list.

Oh my god!

Everyone brace themselves, this is basically the Factory Finds of a lifetime. You could jacket shop for the next two years with all that's available. There's a ton of great stuff to go around, including quite a bit of 100% cashmere. We'll start rolling out swatches tomorrow-Monday, and everything launches in earnest on Tuesday. We've got exclusive access to all of these for a week before Southwick shows it to any other accounts.
