That isn't my style so I was wondering if the coat could be worn in a way that would not look preppy at all, but rather funky cool and modern? Sort of like a ts(s) or Sage De Cret blazer...... Wearing the coat with denim or chinos?

 

Dylan isn't sporting this one so it's hard to tell...

 

Thanks.

Thanks for your input applky.

 

I'm not a white jeans kind of guy either, although I do have a pair of EFF eggshell linen rivet chinos, but I think that might clash.

 

Madras fabric is normally out of my comfort zone but there is something awesome about this particular fabric.....I am most curious if wearing them casually with denim like Big Johns or A.P.C.'s or even my black kaiharas or grey would look modern cool.

 

I have this jacket and I'm going for this kind of look(shirt can vary, no rolled sleeves methinks) with the Madras when going casual. With mid to dark chinos when a bit dressier? Es possible' or am I pushing it.

 

Thanks!

How does sizing compare between Epaulet's Southwick jackets and the LBM 1911 jackets they used to carry? I have a size 38 LBM and a size 39 Southwick, and I'm wondering if I can size down safely - I sometimes wear a cardigan underneath the Southwick.

@Epaulet - looks like I missed out on black combat boots. does the reorder in a few months include black?

For those getting suits who intend to wear them as separates, are you getting patch pockets or inset flaps?

I like idea of the REDA grey as a suit with brown buttons with patch pockets but is that kind of a no-no with something that looks like a true suiting fabric?

I got a suit I intend to wear as separates. Got the REDA with smoke MOP and patch pockets.

@applky  does unconstructed shoulder automatically imply 3/8 lined?

 

btw, i understand from mike that about 12 dudes got olive cord suits.  sounds like a few of us are in NY.

 

we just ​may have to all wear them to a shop event once they're in...:slayer:

Nice! Got the same for the REDA except 2-button, not 3-roll-2. And I went with inset flap pockets with a ticket pocket.

Don't worry so much about it. It's going to go with almost everything, as long as your trousers aren't too matchy-matchy with the colors in the fabric. The eggshell linens would look great, as would denim. Just wear and enjoy!

Haha, I just got the SC, not the full suit (2-button, unconstructed, patch hip pockets and welt breast pocket, brown horn). But a Brotherhood of the Corduroy event would not be out of the question for me!

 

And yes as I understand it the unconstructed shoulder must be done 3/8 lined.

It can definitely work with patch hip pockets. It's just about how you want to wear it and how much you like the look.  If you're wearing it mostly as an odd jacket, go patch.  I plan to wear it more as a suit--and in a rather conservative office--plus I'm not a fan of patch pocket suits.  So flaps it is...  I think.  

 

Brown horn buttons work well regardless.  A good choice.

Joining the club...appreciate any thoughts on the make-up. Doing the REDA as a full suit but will likely wear the jacket as a separate a fair amount. Also wanted to make up the camel hair in something more casual as I'll likely wear it a lot with jeans.

Sportcoat Length: Regular (R)
Rear Vents: Double Vented Rear (Side Vents)
Button Color: Tan Horn (U6)
Pocket Styling: Welt Breast Pocket, Hip Open Patch Pockets
Sportcoat Full or Partial Liner: Full Lining

Nice choices and make ups. I like it all except may go 2 button instead on the camel not 3 roll 2

Personally I wouldn't go unconstructed w/ that Reda if you want to wear it as a suit.  It just doesn't seem like that casual of a fabric, and I like Southwick's natural shoulder.   I'd also swap out the dressy MOP for brown or black horn.  That'll make it more useful as a separate.

@Epaulet How does the REDA compare to the color of the standard grey hopsack Epaulet always carries? Lighter or darker?

Agree with this.

@RuleOfRescue we have officially crowned @EP Dylan the king of Wilshire wear. 

 

His secret: wear the hell out of them, don't wash them too frequently, and when you do, wash them in cold water and hang dry. 


All of the Wilshires have been washed at the factory, so the "raw" part is gone anyway. Just treat them like a pair of chinos, they'll fade just fine as long as you're wearing them a lot.  

 

I do advise to keep them out of the dryer though. You can (1) get extra and unwelcome fabric shrinkage and (2) dull the color as a whole, reducing the contrast of your eventual denim fade. But as we always say here: good clothing should never be in the dryer. Save that for your towels, underwear, socks, and workout gear. A simple collapsible drying rack is an excellent investment in the longevity of your clothing AND it saves you money on the electric bill.

Cold/gentle cycle and hang dry, of course, but wondering how others' have reacted to the same treatment.

 

Also am jonesing for the lightweight fabrics over this a-way.

If yours fits well I would probably cold wash and hang dry.

 

@applky 

@justinkapur

 

Yup, Justin's entirely right on this: the Field Jacket is absolutely fine in a washing machine. Cold water, hang dry like everything else. It was actually supposed to be washed after production but only half of them were. We tested the shrinkage on it already, and I've washed my camo one at least six times. That moleskin is going to soften up really nicely after that!

@Handcuffed

 

 

You are entirely correct. I even have a full set of absolutely perfect polo samples. Wash-tested, supima pique, perfect fitting, great buttons. Plan was to get our first delivery at the end of Feb. 

 

And...... the factory went straight-up out of business. So we'll need to start over from (more or less) square one. I luckily have all of my patterns, so it's going to require meeting with some new places and seeing who can deliver the same manufacturing quality. I'm headed to Europe again at the end of Feb, so I'll work on a new location then.
