@Epaulet
Hey Mike, you have a PM.
post #32882 of 36584

Mike,

 

Sent a friend your way! He picked up a chambray shirt from the BK shop earlier this afternoon; said you recommended a spot to him.

 

I think he's a fan now :)

Just a short plug that Epaulet is really awesome. Can't beat the customer service or the products.

They're scheduled to go to finishing/washing next week and ship shortly after that. Thanks again to everyone for their patience on this! As some other guys have mentioned, the weight is actually on the heavier side, so these are a perfect early Fall piece. You guys will get a ton of wear out of them this season.

Does this mean we're looking at a ship date around the 3rd week of September?

Should I size up or down in the Veneto raincoat if I'm between EP sizes?

I'm hoping not up bc I went TTS. It says it is a slim fit while allowing for a thin sweater underneath.

@tricky not up or not down? :) I'm around a 39, I think you were too. Did you get a 38?

 

EDIT: ah not reading attentively enough, got it.

Haha yeah. I'm a 38 or 39 (if I nip the sides). I'm pretty sure 40 would have been too big.

Haha, yes, these are doing really well. The Speckled Chambray & Double-Faced Cottons are the out-front favorites.

Glad that you dig them! I've also got two new colors (black and chocolate) going live next week. The new full-price retail on them will be $225. Not as cheap as the sale pieces now, but still a very good price.

  1. #8 shell cordovan w/ brass eyelets, flat welt, antique edge trim and double oiled waterloc sole
  2. Brown CXL w/ brass eyelets, reverse welt, antique or natural edge trim and commando sole (very similar to your Innsbruck but in shoe form)

Glad that you like it! We're pretty freaking thrilled at how the Olmsted came out. I love both of these ideas, and I was thinking along the same lines. It's tempting to subject every popular makeup to "Innsbrucking."

We'll definitely run a new round of Alden preorders next month, so I'll build at least the CXL variant out for guys to order and reserve. Got some other new makeups to offer as well.

I know Mike had one a while back similar, but I missed out.
I do need a navy belt.
The only thing I don't like about the Rancourt shell belt is it is narrow (1.25"), so it feels out of place casually.
I have a black CXL belt on from Rancourt.
I still may have to get the blue shell belt.

My CXL belts are officially en-route and will be delivered next Friday. We've got Black, Brown (like the Indy 403/Innsbruck), Natural, and Navy. The navy CXL isn't an exact match to navy shell, but it's pretty complimentary. We're getting good stock across all sizes.

And good lord at how many snuff belts have sold in the past two days! Thanks to everyone who picked it up - you won't be disappointed! I'm putting in a reorder of those and I'm going to look into doing more colors in that slightly tougher shape.

How would you compare the Olmsted to the PTB? Was planning on picking up a pair of the PTB's, but now I'm torn between them and the Olmsted. Looking at the pictures, it strikes me that maybe the Olmsted is going to work better w/ jeans and casual chinos, but maybe not as well w/ the PTB w/ dressier trousers. Would you say that's a fair assessment?

Thanks.

Yup, I'd say that you're correct.

The CXL PTB is one of the most versatile shoes around. I was pushing for that to be a stock item forever. It goes with any casual look but you can also pair it with a textured dress trouser or suit (think tweed, flannel, moleskin, etc).

The Olmsted isn't quite as versatile, but it kicks serious ass. I'll see if I can shoot a fit photo, but it looks incredibly boss with jeans and it really stands out.

Get the Olmsted and you won't regret it. The CXL PTB is a stock item, so you can always buy that later on. The Olmsted will probably be sold out in the next week or so, and we'd be about 8 months away from a restock.

We should have them in-house and ready to ship to you buy that date at the very latest. I'm breaking chops to have them ship from LA next week.

I'd say to buy TTS or size down if you're in between. It runs bigger than most things that we make. It's really a great jacket, and it's very practical. I've tried to do raincoats a few times, and it's just not something that our customers are into - hence the psycho markdown price. But that shouldn't reflect on the quality of the item. It's made in Italy by Paul Stuart's primary outerwear factory, and it's really top notch.
post #32890 of 36584

Has anyone taken a Rivet chino and trimmed it up?

 

It has the perfect casual silhouette for me; I think going forward, I will just grab Rivets.

 

But for a dressier look—and I say this having taken many measurements across my best fitting trousers—I'm thinking of taking the Rivet in about 0.5" (thigh/knee/hem). Has anyone done something like that? How did it turn out?

 

I think @rydenfan

mentioned doing something like this.

 

@Epaulet

 

I hope you bring back more sanded canvas fabric and colors. Really loving the indigo.

 

Random: how stiff is the duck canvas? I have 12 oz duck canvas I got from another shop and it just won't break in; stiff as a board.

post #32891 of 36584
I taper all my Rivets from the knee down

Not too stiff at all, breaks in very easily.

Good to hear the CXL belts will be there by next Friday, I will actually be in NYC next weekend so I'll swing by the store and pick one up. Been a long time since I've been able to hit up the store in person!
post #32894 of 36584

apologies if it's been posted, but does anyone have a pic of the snuff belt against a pair of snuff from alden?

post #32895 of 36584
Pretty bummed out to see my order from the sale was cancelled.

Question to those who's familiar with the situation:

I paid for the item via Paypal which is linked directly to my bank account. The amount has already been withdrawn from my account. I guess the refunded amount will show in my paypal account some time next week, just got the email today. When I transfer the fund back into my bank account, will I get hit with the fee or will I be able to transfer the whole amount back?

Many thanks.
