Thanks for the well-wishes everyone! We'll keep you updated with everything as it progresses. 

 

The Trunk Show was pretty hectic, and I sadly didn't get any photos during it. However, one of our customers (and friends) stopped by with the most amazing outfit of "perfectly aged" Epaulet gear. He rides his motorcycle all over LA and has put an incredible amount of wear on this stuff. 

 

Check it out: 

 

 

 

 

And the original of this jacket... (2013 production)

 

 

And now the Wilshire Jean...

 

 

vs. the original...

 

 

And look at the Loden Tennis Trainers...

 

 

Crazy shade of olive compared to out-of-the-box...

^ I'm not really a fan of leather jackets but the patina on that example is amazing!

It's stunning. He runs the real risk of being jacket-jacked by a RRL designer. And the jacket has a funny story. It was a sad casualty of the California sunshine, and one sleeve was noticably faded from the window. 

 

I sold it to this customer at a very steep discount. At the time, he told me that he wasn't concerned. Turns out that sun-fading isn't all that noticable any longer.

You should see how amazing my 2-Stroke Indy's look these days. Talk about aging well.

 

Very bummed you're leaving Cobble Hill.

Los Angeles Office Opening

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

No, your eyes do not deceive you. And we have not time-traveled back to 2013. Adele & I are (once again) moving to Los Angeles. But this time for real! 

As @Michigan Planner said, our online business is around 90% of our overall revenue. The stores are great, but they’re more of a showroom for the website then they are a standalone business. And it’s simply more valuable to have a presence on both coasts then to have two stores that are 15 min away from each other. Plus we’re moving here for our family. My daughter is only 2 years old, but she told me that she wants to surf. And eat better tacos. What other choice did we have!

 

Adele & I are moving out to Cali in July and the office is planned to open by September. When it’s up and running, this will be our main fulfillment center and a West Coast showroom. It won’t be a storefront on the ground level. This will be a comfortable place and a destination. It will be semi-open to the public, but you can always make an appointment to see merchandise in person and be sized for custom shirts, pants, suits, etc. We’ll have an open house on every Saturday (called “Studio Saturdays”) with beer and 90’s rap. Anyone can drop by to just hang out and talk shop. Right now we’re planning to have the office in the Culver City area, but that may change somewhat.

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. 

 

Why oh why can't this be online; boy, do I need an Epaulet leather jacket, and shoes that start with "A." :(... *chlip* (translation from my Slavic mother tongue: *sniff*)

Carpool possibly?

As an LA native, all I can say is more Mike and Adele in SoCal can only be a good thing. Look forward to stopping by on a Saturday when visiting the folks. You guys are so rad. Great store, great stuff, great peeps.

Culver City being accessible by Metro makes a huge difference as well.

 

Plus we'll once again have Father's Office within walking distance (probably/hopefully).

@Epaulet The LA Office. Perfect! Best for the move.
