I've got several, because it never gets very cold in the south where I live. Personally I'm not a fan of the M-65 looks, but i  certainly see the appeal. I stick with my Barbour waxed jackets and quilted jackets... worn with some awesome rivets, of course!

I'm in central California, so we don't have real winters here either. A mid weight jacket would be extremely useful, but I just haven't found anything I like yet. Epaulet delivers however, so I'm waiting expectantly on these. :-)

So I just opened up my HH sport trainers and they're awesome - hands-down nicer than my MMMs - but unfortunately about 1/2 size too large. frown.gif

Ah well, off to B&S they go, and lesson learned for next time.

I think what @Epaulet is doing is pretty incredible. First off, they had the foresight to see the me too world of guys undercutting each other by $10 for the same Carmina makeup is not really a sustainable business model; especially in the world of NYC rent and storage costs. So to go out there and find a facility and begin crafting in-house products was a great move. Not to mention the uniqueness of the offerings and the quality that has been achieved in a  very small amount of time. They are also creating products that are simultaneously appealing to you (guys who generally didn't wear this type of footwear) as well as offering something to the hardcore SW&D guys who rock MMM, CP, Buttero etc and giving them a product that is on par or superior at a well discounted rate. Its really pretty fascinating to watch unfold

I'd agree, and I think they differentiate themselves quite nicely with a) the range of products offered (a variety of both welted shoes and sneakers) and b) offering unique options like unfinished HH, couro cromo, &c.

I'm definitely getting in line for a pair of chelseas at the trunk show and keeping an eye out for the combat boots when they drop.

I'll just join in to say that about a year ago I owned zero sneakers apart from what I wear to the gym. Now have a pair of Butteros and a pair of EP trainers. Next pair will be EP again and the offerings are all amazing - spoiled for choice with all these incredible leathers and styles.

If anyone wants to part with a size 8 in the unfinished HH trainers, please PM me. Thanks! :fonz:

I'm in the same boat, which just hit me in the face with this recent (relative) cold spell.  I have some nice tweed and heavier coats for 50 and below, lighter cotton jackets for above 60 but nothing within that 10 degree range or that's the story I'm sticking with for now.  :D

Well stated!

Some Alden Saddles with EP Driggs EFF World Champion Wheat Donegal. The amount of color variation doesn't come through very well in this photo, but they're pretty crazy pants; I spotted several shades of brown, green, blue, red, orange, yellow, black, etc.

Are the Chelsea Boots only being offered at the Trunk Show, and only with the crepe sole?

I'm in the minority here, I suppose. I am occasionally a sneaker guy on weekends (jacks, etc.) but I can't bring myself to get these trainers. I see the appeal but I just don't see myself wearing them, especially with shorts. But, if you're going to pin me down on one pair/look, I dig the darkish trainers a few posts before mine.

My $0.02.

Received the NE wheat donegal overshirt today. I sized down to M from my usual EP shirt size of L, and I think the fit is fine. The shoulders are probably a tad wide, but I guess that's fine for this type of outerwear. Should be a good layering piece in the winter.

Wearing it over the full EP kit today: Gitman EFF shirt, western print CXL belt, speckled duck canvas Rivets.

I see my comment sparked a few replies over the last day - I should've clarified earlier; the alabaster leather is great, but what really caught my eye and prompted the original post, and mis-identification of shoes, was the low monochrome Graphite Trainer.



I liked the alabaster version of this from months ago too, but missed out.
