I kopped the loden. Get both, return one you don't like.

I was too. I went with Loden but almost immediately regretted it. I'm sure I would have done the same if I had bought the grey. This usually means they're both awesome

If I do that...there's a danger of keeping both wink.gif

And it's become insanely annoying to return from Canada. I think grey is what I'll go for.

Edit - went with grey.

I've never tried since I don't have 100% faith in my tailor. I always hear that as a possibility but I don't remember anyone having hands on experience.

Anyone here let out their sport coat waists?

1. Go with the correct shoulder size. 

 

2. Find a new tailor.

 

Letting out a the waist on a jacket is a common alteration any tailor should be comfortable with.

I'm sure it will be perfect for that, especially in SF. Went with olive duck in LA and want both of the moleskins.

correction - kopped the Loden moleskin, ring rings, vittorio farmers check , and choco suede chelseas. I changed my mind a dozen times on the chelseas (suede vs leather, sand/ghost/choco). Still have to decide on the Luigi Bianchi MTO.

So much goodness. So little money.

Nice haul.

I missed out on all the sneaker photo action so getting in on it. Horsehide are next I think. Really regret missing that one.

That's the same reason I went grey. My olive duck Doyle gets tons of wear though. Killer piece.

@PartagasIV oh yes... enjoyed gazing at those before sealing up the box. Thanks again!

Fresh from a trip to Epaulet. Teak trainers were too good to pass up. Really cool look and amazingly comfortable. Also tried on the Vittorio from LBM - it really is an amazing jacket.

 

@Goodman enjoy them and thanks!


And man, the Saddle/Ecru ones are super clean

@ahjota definitely worth a shot. We've sold both the Running Trainer and the Sport Trainer very successfully to guys who take "E" width. Definitely worth a shot.

Would the recommendation be go for the 40R, and if necessary letting out around the waist? Or sizing up to 42?

 

@wigglr You know, I'd recommend doing a 41. That's what I wear, and from what I've seen, you and I have a similar build on top. 

 

The waist is really easy to let out on a Southwick jacket - particularly if you go for the partial liner. Our local tailors do it all of time. However, you might find that it's not necessary with the 41 coat. And the difference in shoulder from 40 to 41 is really minimal. Shoulder measurements from one jacket to the other aren't really that comparable, as so much depends on the armhole and the pitch. I'll say that the Southwick shoulder is very well fitting, and it's been really rare for the jacket to fit in the key dimensions but for the shoulders to be really off. Unless you've got very narrow shoulders for your chest (like our old employee Matt) or really broad shoulders for your build (Michael Phelps), then I wouldn't stress about it. I think that you'd be fine.

Which materials are you guys considering ?

 

@SherifEnt 

 

Both of the Donegals are awesome - and we've sold quite a few of them since starting the promo - particularly the Forest and Oxboold. The Forest Donegal is unstoppable. 

 

However, I'd personally have to give the edge to the Farmer's Check. It's just so rad to have a soft coat in a luxe cloth like that. It instantly transports your whole look - well for me at least. It's a very Italian style that's an interesting mix of 1960's/1970's and somehow right-freaking-now.

@gentfarmer we can probably shoot this tomorrow. If not all three Tennis shoes together, then something in each of the leathers.

Some pics from the last couple of weeks. Several don't actually show the EP gear that was being worn but thought they were cool pics. Hope you guys don't mind. First few are from a bike tour of west Texas that me and my best friend made two weeks ago. My lovely wife thought a Ducati Multistrada would be a good birthday gift for me and this was the first trip on it.
Last few are Milan and Paris from this past week.
I had two EP suits on the trip also that got a lot of use, alas, no pictures.

Epic post - your pictures are phenomenal! 

 

I have to highlight this sentence: "My lovely wife thought a Ducati Multistrada would be a good birthday gift for me and this was the first trip on it."

 

I mean, that's amazing. That's like the best birthday gift ever. Your wife kicks ass! 

 

And that's surreal about your timing in Paris. What an absolutely terrible thing that happened there. I was in NYC for 9/11 and saw that first hand - my heart goes out to everyone there.

Two good points of advice with @Darkside - shoulder and chest are key fit points on sportcoats. Taking in and letting out the waist of a jacket should be relatively easy for most tailors.

Glad to see that the Pewter OG's are still going strong! @tricky

@MG85 They're really different pieces and fabrics, so I could definitely see owning both. The Loden is radically darker, and it's a much heavier fabric.

Thank you for the insight. I think you swayed me towards the Farmer's Check (navy,wheat, mocha).  I can see why the Forest Donegal is selling so well.  Looking more and more at the options I think the Wheat Donegal  is not getting as much love as it deserves.
