@boned thanks so much - I think that you're really going to dig them!
I owe you guys a proper post on the Combat Boots - we'll do a more detailed writeup and show some new photos next week. But it's a really exciting product for us. We sold nearly a dozen pairs of them in our stores this weekend, which is a great number for just in-shop sales. It was very cool to see guys coming in, trying them on, and falling in love with them.
It's a very cool product, and it's pretty distinct from anything that we've done before. The shape is really minimal, it's easy to dress up or down, the price is right, and it's comfortable right out of the box. The zipper is a rad detail and a very useful one. We'll absolutely incorporate more of these into our collection down the road.
I'm actually thinking of making a rad Spring version of this - maybe a polo suede version with brass eyes and a lighter edge trim? Could do a bright brass interior zipper on it too. Actually that sounds really dope!
@hooker4186 should be shipping out before 1/15. The factory reopens tomorrow from their holiday and they're going to start assembling everything pronto.
@justinkapur thank you sir!
@Darkside very sharp - the Wilshire is a great fit for you guys!
@mdubs amazing! Great photos and glad that they ultimately made their way to you safely!
I finally wore my OSC Cross parka today because I was tired of waiting for its first wear and the weather in NYC has actually gotten into the 40's, so I figured close enough. I was walking around in just a long-sleeve t-shirt underneath and wound up sweating my ass off. I think I'll have to wait for snow to wear it again. That jacket is no joke.
@loxo haha yeah, that jacket is not taking any prisoners. Supposed to be in the 30's tomorrow, so it's going to come in handy very soon.
I had been looking for the right black leather jacket for years. I actually found Epaulet through the Thedi shawl collar jacket -- brown, but supremely badass. It is one of my favorite wardrobe articles. When the brown cafe racer came last year, I wanted one badly, but just didn't need another brown jacket and was still missing my perfect black. I asked @Epaulet if they could possibly have a black one made. I finally received it a few days ago and couldn't be happier. The leather and construction quality is miles above anything else I've seen, and the fit is perfect. At some point, I guess Mike decided to order a small stock of them. I'm telling you, if you have any desire for a black cafe racer, you will be kicking yourself when these are gone. It is very close to a perfect jacket. On a quick vacation to Florida so I just have this crappy hotel pic, but here it is after a walk in the rain today.

Thanks for the writeup Steve, I'm thrilled that you're so pleased with the jacket! It's a perfect fit on you.
