^ what do you do about...like...dress shoes

post #28382 of 37581
kwanon should buy those Allen Edmond Strawfuts.

My feet sweat a lot in the summer too so I normally put some gold bond foot powder on my feet before wearing socks. The powder will absorb the moisture and keep my feet dry.

I punch holes in all my dress shoes.

Doesn't that just turn into a nasty paste?

No it won't. The powder is supposed to absorb the moisture and odor.  Well, it never turned into a paste for me but I guess it depends how much sweat you have....

Haha, we're huge Ghostface (aka the Wallabee Champ) fans here.

I feel that around 10% of our inter-company skype chats is dedicated to Wu-Tang quotes.

I love the LBM x Epaulet sportscoat that just dropped. Any more in the pipeline?

Just one more for the season, which should be here soon. It's a wool-blend in a soft plaid.

Yup, it's in work now. Hopefully 2-3 more weeks on that.

Is there any chance of getting that in some other colors?
The material breaks in amazingly and shows what looks like a patina almost immediately after washing the first time.

Hmm, I'll have to see what we'll have for Fall/Winter this year. Agreed though, I love that cloth too.

Absolutely, we're going to carry 7 and 7.5 in all three colors. Only 1's and 2's per size, but we'll definitely have them.

Good call! We'll definitely do something for our anniversary.

Also, would prefer a single color or very close toned shoes. Anything in white on a shoe is just to hard to maintain for me. 

First off, huge thanks to everyone for all of the feedback!

I thought about this, but decided against it ultimately. Our Sport Trainers don't have grommets, and most of the higher-end sneakers on the market do not. Even Lanvin only appears to use them on some of their styles. I think that it's nice, but not really necessary when you have a full-grain quality leather which is going to breathe. This comes more into play when you have a hard-finish corrected grain or a patent leather. For me, the added comfort in the heat isn't worth (1) getting a ton of water on your feet if it rains and (2) allowing freezing cold air in during the late Fall/Winter. But I know that everyone will have different preferences on this.

However, I see your point, so we may put a small trio of perforations on the instep. That won't interrupt the clean lines of the sneaker and will allow some air through them. We're going to finalize the shape.

Got two pairs of canvas rivets yesterday.

 

Do you guys generally attach the extra belt loop to rear? (not altering sizing at all)

 

The waistband does ride up a little at the back as is, but I think it would be a bit overcrowded with another loop.

Mike--

Any plans for a re-run of the Carmina Hughes loafer? Looking for a boat shoe/camp moccasin for the warmer weather. Also, what is the ETA for the Fairfax?
post #28391 of 37581
First big spring drop looks fantastic.

I handled the fabric on that Sammy windowpane SC at a trunk show of theirs about a month ago. The hand on the fabric lives up to the hype of the photo. Assuming it was the same stuff, it has a nice, refined look to it that separates it from all the linens and hopsacks we all may already own. Worth the price, I'd say.

I throw mine in a drawer in case I need to replace one someday.

Actually, the extra belt loop is for putting on the center of the rear seam - if you prefer that over having two loops straddling the seam.

I'm not really sure if anyone actually does this. But it's a thing with trouser factories. Walt trousers come with the extra belt loop as well. kwanon's suggestion is a good one. It can't hurt to have a backup in case one of them gets ripped off.

Not at the moment. I'm looking into doing a camp moc and a casual loafer in Europe as part of our EPLA shoe line. It will depend on the price, but if we can bring in a really high quality items for around $200 to $250, then I think that can prove to be a great value.

Fairfax is in sampling now, hopefully I'll have something to show in a few weeks. New Wilshire delivery is around 7 days out. We've got a few rad new denimz...

1) 12oz Lightweight Kuroki indigo selvedge (good for Spring/Summer)
2) Kaihara warp and weft dyed solid line selvedge (comes up as more of a solid navy color with a strong white selvedge contrast line)
3) A VERY limited run of Galey and Lord Khaki Military Twill with red line selvedge (we'll have about 20-24 units to offer)
4) 36 unit restock of Kaihara Grey 14oz Selvedge

That fabric knocked us out when we saw it. It's unreal.

I can tell you guys that our tailored clothing will take three forms in 2014:

Opening Price: EPLA Doyle Jackets and Sportcoats (coming out next month) in washed canvas, twill, and washable wool. $175 - $275. More on the casual side, but we'll make some varieties which can skew more biz-caz depending on your industry.

Mid Range: Southwick for Epaulet: offering great value in off the rack, MTO, and Factory Finds. $500 - $800. The Walt pattern has officially landed at Southwick which means two awesome things. One: a large range of full 2-piece and 3-piece MTO suiting. Two: trouser factory finds!

Top Range: Luigi Bianchi Mantova & Samuelsohn for Epaulet. $800 - $1200. We're taking no prisoners with this and using top-end fabric. Lots of Loro Piana goods. Outside of our in-house fits which we think are very good, both brands offer an excellent value. Both windowpanes that we launched today are full-line Loro Piana goods, and they are really psychotically nice. I don't think that it's possible to find a fully canvassed jacket (Sam) or a fully unstructured piece (LBM) in this level of fabric for this price. That's my goal with our top range - to offer something really luxurious and bring some new alternatives to a very crowded market. Stock is going to be limited here, and we'll generally make about 6 - 10 units per fabric.

I've never added the extra loop.
post #28395 of 37581

I never knew the extra loop was for the rear.  Thought it was an extra just in case and always put them in my wife's sewing kit (not that she really sews :-<<).
