I like those Vanson Triton jackets. I am thinking about one. Has anyone here bought one, and how do you like it?

I picked up the Vanson Triton in the spring (black) and I love it. Was lucky that we had a cold wet spring so I got to wear it for a little bit before summer. Now excited for fall. Overall really nice jacket and great quality, like all things Epaulet.

How warm would you say the Triton jacket is? Do you think it could go through most of winter with a sweater underneath? Do you like the fit? I am trying to decide between this jacket and something completely different.... like an Engineered Garments wool jacket.

Do you like the fit?

I am trying to decide between this jacket and something completely different.... like an Engineered Garments wool jacket.

I'd say that most customers buying the Triton are intending to wear it as a Fall jacket. Its got a cotton liner its made of extremely thick waxed duck cotton, but there's no insulation in it.

That said, I'd say that layering this piece with a sweater would be as warm as wearing most EG outerwear pieces. I find them too light for an NYC winter, but they're sufficient for a lot of guys. I know people who make it through the whole winter with a fairly light Barbour coat, so it depends on what you're comfortable with.

If you really like the style and want to comfortably wear it, you might consider a lightweight down layering piece like this down "shirt" from Nau:



This thing is awesome. We'll have it in store in about a week. It's thin, but warmer than any sweater. You can buy the Triton slim, layer this under, and be quite warm on colder days. Patagonia and Cresent Down Works make similar pieces. These go a long way to extending the wearability of waxed and wool coats.

Thanks for the information. That down layer looks interesting too. I would probably wear my real winter coat on a super cold day where I have to actually be outside for a long time. However, most of the time with commuting to Manhattan from NJ, I don't want too much warmth considering the amount of time I'm indoors or on a Bus/Train. So, something like the Triton would probably work most of the time. I'm thinking about it! How's your stock of the Vanson Tritons at the Pop-Up on Orchard? It would be easier for me to get down there from work if I want to try on.

I plan on wearing my Trinton over the winter with just a sweater underneath. I wore it in the late spring, during a snow storm, and was plenty warm with just a button up underneath. From my experience it seems to keep the warmth in pretty well. Just my opinion, good luck in what you choose but fare warning.... when you go try it on you will want it. FYI- I did buy my Triton in an XL so I could layer underneath it (usually wear XL in Epaulet shirts). Still looks good with just a T-Shirt underneath.

Werd. I had big dreams before of buying a car or house, maybe start a family and put money aside for my kid's college fund. All that is gone now that I've found this website.

^I remember Mike saying there's more coming in November.

I bought the Triton jacket last Saturday in Olive and can't say enough good things about it. Fit is great, construction is bomb proof and looks great. I actually used mine all week riding my motorcycle and it completely blocked the wind, like waxed cotton duck should. It's not suitable as a winter jacket though unless you layer like crazy and then I don't think the cut of this jacket would allow that.

Yeah, I stopped exercising cause I didn't need to. I call it the Epaulet diet plan.
post #2895 of 36512
One last question about the Triton jacket. Is the waxed cotton sticky, and does it attract a lot of lint?
Not a dealbreaker, but I'm curious.

Thanks!
