Epaulet shop - Official Affiliate thread - Page 3501

@Epaulet Congrats on the move! Maybe I should convince my daughter to start telling my wife that she wants to learn to surf as well so I'll have a good excuse to move to warmer and sunnier climes!

I am sort of saddened to see that LA will be the main fulfillment center since it will probably add a day on to my shipping! smack.gif

Thanks so much everyone, we're really jazzed for it! 

 

The sale is going to be a lot of fun - hope to see some of you guys there. 

 

In terms of Store Pickup @peppercorn78 - the BK store will be open on Thurs for pickups. However, all store pickup items remaining there will go to the Manhattan shop on Friday morning. I'll mention this in the newsletter, but three important things for local guys:

 

1) We will not have any store pickup items available during the Brooklyn sale 

 

2) We cannot take any returns or exchanges during the Brooklyn sale

 

3) We cannot size you for custom clothing during the Brooklyn sale

 

All three of these things can happen at the Manhattan store over the weekend, though. Sorry for the restrictions, but I'm anticipating things getting pretty crazy, and we have to just focus on moving stuff out that day.

Really excited for the things to come!

 

@OdusBK my first samples are shipping next week. I can't speak for anyone else, but I can tell you that these will be the straight-up best shoes on the market for the price.

Guess I need to go back to Los Angeles more often...

Congrats, Mike.

I was actually in SaMo last night in semi menswear attire at a chic restaurant with a friend. Of course nearly everyone else was in t's and hoodies...reminded me of our convo on how you were the only one in menswear on the block!

If you need a baby sitter or dog sitter, give me a call, man! I love both equally icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Congrats to you and Adele, Mike. Will miss running into y'all weekends on the playground, but wish you both the best out west.

Very interested in seeing the Portugal plans come together. I've always been a fan of your made-in-USA offerings, in part because of my (likely naive) misgivings about worker conditions abroad. But knowing the effort you put into connecting with your suppliers and factories puts my concerns totally to rest. Very excited to see what you've got in store!

Oh yes, they thought that I was a doctor at the coffee place!

 

Haha, I'm not going to make that mistake twice though. A brick and mortar #menswear store in Los Angeles is a pretty awful idea. It's truthfully very hard to pull off in the vast majority of cities, especially if your offerings are off-the-rack. 

 

Our new space is going to focus on made to order pieces and the biz-caz basics. I'll certainly sell more Tennis Trainers than I will Carmina double monks. And more field jackets than Samuelsohn tweed sportcoats. But for someone who wants the more formal and/or higher end stuff, we'll have all of our Made-To-Order possibilities. And a very comfortable space to hang out in. When we sold 8 Sea Island cotton shirts that the LA Trunk Show, I knew that we were on to something :-)

 

For the record, several guys asked "Where's Wisith" at the trunk show!

@MKELLY Thank you!

 

And that's a good point. We're always very careful with our factory partners - which is a point that I really need to spell out explicitly on the website. Our Portugal factories are excellent, and I've personally visted and vetted every one of them. 

 

Which, believe me, is not the case. A lot of Portuguese production is used for both Zara and Massimo Dutti. The work and materials are cheap, because they have to be. There's plenty of awful low end production in Portugal as well. Italy too (and probably even more so). I'm not exaggerating when I say that we're using the absolute best partner for every category that we're working with. 

 

Our American production isn't going anywhere, and we'll most likely expand that too. It will move to less off-the-rack and more made-to-order though. In the case of factories like Southwick and Individualized, it's what they do best.

Haha. Fok asked me the same thing...he demanded I post more on here, but I don't actually post outfit pictures much anymore. I only posted in your thread anyway:foo:

I'm officially unemployed for the week since I'm starting a new gig on Monday, was going to stop by your trunk show but timing didn't work out.

I will definitely stop by your LA place if that's allowed. Will give you some goodies too...working on some products to get into the pet industry smile.gif

Congrats to Mike&Adele on moving back out west. I keep finding reasons to avoid weekend trips to SoCal, but now I won't be able to say no.

Yes! It's a great selling point for people who worry about ethical production -- the answer isn't (can't be) to buy only Made-in-USA. The better answer -- the one that actually serves the workers at issue -- is to find chances to promote and patronize the factories and producers that are doing it right. And you guys are in a great position to help us do that.

That said, hey, any time you want to run another promotion like the EFF Southwick promo, I'll be clearing my calendar and checking the couch for coins. It's not often (in fact, not ever) that I buy two suits, and find myself saying within weeks of their arrival "I just wished I'd picked up one more..."

They’ll be plenty of high end things like leather jackets and shoes that start with “A.” - not to mention wacko samples, overcast, and old stuff. It’s definitely worth the trip from out of town. Please note that the sale is cash only and everything is final sale with NO exceptions.

Very tempted to make the trip up from DC on Saturday even though I'll be writing checks to The Man for more than $800 on Friday . . .

Let me know when you in T.O and we will hit my range.
