Mike, could you say a little bit more about the WWII style waistband?

Can't wait to see the chambray and French blue Doyle. I suspect the French blue is gonna be the sleeper pic

Sure, it's also called a "Hollywood Waistband" (paging oisin on that one)

You guys might be familiar with this from the RRL officer chino:



On a hollywood waistband, the body of the trouser and the waistband is one continuous piece. The waistband of our Walt/Driggs/Rivet is a separate piece.

It's a cool look and will be a new silhouette for us. In the past I used to just make 100 different Walts. But with the advent of the MTO program, I'm focusing more on creating new shapes and distinct designs for our "bottoms" collection. Many guys can wear all of the shapes comfortably, and it allows you to have many distinct items in the overall Epaulet shape.

The Garand leg is between the Rivet and the Driggs. Rise is between the Driggs and the Walt. If you like our other fits then this should fit you very well too, and the wash effect on our fabrics will be very cool. I've got a really tough 11oz British cotton to use for it, so it will have a nice heft. Perfect match for some bad-ass boots. And you can MTO it in something like tweed if you like.

You can me both! We gave it a nice enzyme wash, so I'm hoping it comes within spitting distance of the patina on Stanley Van Buren's infamous french blue chinos.

So much win in this post! Can't wait to see the new cut. I have been wearing the hell out of my two sided FF British khaki and red Rivets lately. I would love to find more of this style fabric




If the Doyle does indeed come out that color that will likely make it my third Doyle...not good

And Free & Easy came by to do an interview and photo shoot today, so I put together a whole EPLA outfit. Shot this with the Iphone on a self timer - hence my "Mr. Roboto" posing job


Cross-Hatch Kamigata
Washed Indigo Pique Tee
UK Khaki Canvas Rudy
Armor-Lux Socks
Snuff Trainers


1972 Sub No Date for the watch. Free & Easy issues always have a great presentation of vintage Rolex pieces.

So excited for the "garand", I've already switched my entire work pants wardrobe to walts, it makes pants shopping so much easier when you know you will be getting the perfect fit everytime and are able to pick from a variety of quality fabrics. Hopefully the "garand" will achieve the same for my casual wardrobe. Just thinking of the heavy tweeds gives me goosebumps. Well done guys!

Those photos are so Free & Easy! Let us know what issue the interview is in--I love that magazine.

Are EPLA polos still in the works?
post #32006 of 36577
Very excited for Garand too, hopping it will work.

Really nice tees, I wish they were 1/2" larger everywhere!

Yeah, these tees are beyond fantastic. If you're on the fence, don't hesitate to buy a few.

I washed cold, tumbled dry low, and wore for a day and here's how the measurements changed:
- chest remained unchanged
- length shortened between 0.5 and 1 inch

Sounds good. I'm not sure if I'm the only one but I'm a small in all Epaulet but had to size up to a medium for loopwheeled. I do have semi broad shoulders and chest. The medium fits perfect except just a little long so hopefully it'll just shrink in the length when I wash. The small henleys however fit me perfectly.

Went to the LES shop on Friday afternoon for the first time and tried on whole bunch of sizes for chinos, trousers, and blazers.

Ended up picking up my first rivet chino, will be taking them to my tailor. Also picked up the last formal belt and it was a surprise that the 36 belt fit my regular 32 waist. The indigo washed pocket tee is abosolutely awesome, I can't wait to wear the crap out of it.

Special shout out to Matt and Alex. They were very helpful. Matt also wrote down all my sizes for me!

Definitely the place to go back when I go back to NYC!
