I am trying to decide if I take them to the tailor or send them to be chain stitched.

Yeah, it would be nice if EP would offer chain stitching. I'm experimenting with some jeans and some RC's with hemming them shorter and wearing them without cuffing them. In that case, regular hemming would seem to do the trick.post #28024 of 488293/6/14 at 5:05pmpost #28025 of 488293/6/14 at 5:09pmpost #28026 of 488293/6/14 at 5:21pmQuote:

Any suggestions for places that offer mail in chain stitching? I know Self Edge does a mail in service.
I sent mine to railcar. They are semi local to me but I didn't want to drive an hour to get it done. First time getting it done by them but they did a great job and very fast. Received an email saying they received my jeans and would start working on it shortly. I had them delivered to my door the following day. I guess it helps I live close but their service was definitely quick. They also give you back the denim they cut off for future repairs.post #28028 of 488293/6/14 at 6:00pmQuote:Originally Posted by chrispy650

That sounds like a good option. Self Edge NY also offers a $10 rate for chainstitching our Epaulet jeans if you're in-store. Not sure about mail-in, but you can give them a call and ask. We're good friends and on the same street, so I imagine that they'll take care of you.
Most of our guys will want to have their selvedge jeans chainstitched, but they don't have to be. If you take them to a standard tailor to have a lock stitch done, then just make sure that he/she reattaches the original hem.
The chainstitch is going to be visible if you cuff the jeans, so it's probably worth the effort if you wear them cuffed. But if you do not cuff them, then the outside of a lockstitch and the outside of a chainstitch look pretty similar.
Here's a little bit about itpost #28029 of 488293/6/14 at 6:13pmQuote:Originally Posted by oisin
here's another shot of the Doyle, as I'm goofing with a friend at work.

Thanks for posting these. Jacket looks really good. I like how it already has a nice broken in look, a little rumpled. I assume this is the wash the canvas gets. The arms also look like a good, slim cut. To be expected, I suppose.
Looking forward to mine.post #28030 of 488293/6/14 at 6:33pmpost #28031 of 488293/6/14 at 6:54pmThe Doyle Jacket
Thanks to everyone who ordered this today! I had a nice batch of them shipping out this afternoon. Here's the crucial details and links below:
1) The Doyle jacket is our EPLA take on the classic French Work Jacket. The idea was to create something casual that could be just as easily worn with a tee or henley as it can an oxford and knit tie. It's the casual counterpoint to our constructed and tailored EPNY sportcoats.
2) The fit is consistent overall with our in-house shirting and jackets, and it maintains the typical slim shape while bringing a tiny bit of extra volume into the body in keeping with the traditional lines. 3)
3) It's made in Los Angeles of 10oz Organic duck canvas. Once its sewn, its run through a two-step enzyme wash to eliminate shrinkage and create a soft, worn-in hand. Anyone with a well-loved pair of duck canvas Rivet Chinos or Walts knows what we're talking about. This piece is instantly comfortable and breathable when you wear it. Of course it's fully machine washable. The enzyme treatment is killer. It almost makes the canvas feel like it's a cotton-linen blend.
4) It has three exterior pockets and one interior. All inside seams are taped and the back has a single vent. The front hip pockets actually have two layers so they can be used as either top-down patch pockets or side entry pockets. They're reinforced with hidden rivets inside.
5) The cuffs have a normal lock stitch at the end, so taking up the sleeves is a breeze if you need to do that.
Ok, here's the pics and links:

And oisin was kind enough to model the jacket here at the Santa Monica shop.
He looks pretty freaking boss in it. But as I mentioned, he's 6"5", so the jacket is more cropped on him than it will look on most guys.post #28032 of 488293/6/14 at 6:56pmSome more oisin fit shots....
Our dude also modeled the new Wilshire jeans to show you how they look in real life.
A quick note on stock. We've got enough denim for about 50 more grey jeans, so they will be restocked in around 4 weeks. The White Kuroki denim is completely used up, so the remaining units that we have is all that we're going to have. If your size is in stock, then pick it up sooner than later. It's pretty awesome denim.
EPLA Wilshire Jean 14 oz. Grey Kurabo Denim: $150

I then convinced him to go "Full Pitti" with the LBM 1911 Denim Sportcoat and Sky Blue Chambray Shirtpost #28033 of 488293/6/14 at 10:12pmpost #28034 of 488293/7/14 at 2:13am
They're pretty similar in their stark white color tone. But the denim is very different. It's thicker (14oz vs 10oz) and has a really great slubby texture when you see it up close. It's one of the best white denims that I've ever seen, and the red line selvedge is a nice touch when it's cuffed up.
