Sale was pretty decent. Aldens went fast and everything was picked over after 2 hours.

The Hopsack will maybe breathe better, while it also has more visual interest. I'd go with the Hopsack anyday unless your business culture is EXTREMELY anal. If it's a little more forgiving, then Hopsack again wins over.post #52610 of 587294/16/16 at 12:47pmpost #52611 of 587294/16/16 at 12:56pmIt was definitely chaotic. The shoes took a lot longer to go than the clothing, but I was able to pick up a sample pair of Chelseas, a pair of Alden PTB, and a pair of white/grey sport trainers. All for less than the price of the Alden PTB's at retail. It was definitely worth the 4.5 hours of round trip driving.post #52612 of 587294/16/16 at 3:18pm
Just got back from the closing sale in Brooklyn. The energy and vibe of the place was outstanding. If you guys are in the area please do yourself a favor and make the trip. It was such a nice a day in the city, I thought I would stop by and meet the Epaulet crew. I ended up buying 2 shoes. But the real treat of the day was meeting the crew and speaking with Mike and Dylan. I am so impressed with them on a personal level. Not only are they genuinely good people but they have this extraordinary passion for what they do. For example , I was talking to Mike about the MTO shirts and we started to discuss the DOJ SIC shirts and his eyes just lit up (the guy truly loves the fabric). These guys are not sales people just trying to get every penny out of the consumer . To me, Epaulet is attempting to share an experience to the consumer. (I apologize if I am sounding like a "fan boy.") They love what they do and it definitely shows. A couple of things that I noticed or discovered today:
1) Mike has a lot of killer events coming out. (my wallet is already shaking) Not my place to put them in this post.
2) The Chelsea boots are soooo much nicer in real life. I did not participate in the group buy and now regret it.
3) The Hawaiian shirts are freaking awesome
4) The Derby shoes are really comfortable. Probably the steal of a century.
5) The denim jackets run slightly larger than the typical Epaulet fit ( I wear XXL in the shirting but the XL was fine in the jacket)
6) Dylan was taller than expected :)
Epaulet thank you guys for wonderful time. Sad to see the store is closing , but at least we have the LES shop. Adele and Mike, I wish your family the best out in California . I am sure your daughter will love it.post #52613 of 587294/16/16 at 3:42pmI stopped by the Brooklyn store today as well: first time since 2009 or 2010 when I had to wait nearly 40 mins for the dreaded F train. Thankfully, the LES store opened a few years later. And thankfully today I got the F train right away in both directions.
The sale was worthwhile and thanks to Mike, Adele and the whole team for a pleasant shopping experience even amid the bustle of a store closing sale.post #52614 of 587294/16/16 at 4:38pmpost #52615 of 587294/16/16 at 4:39pmQuote:Glad one of us CT guys made it and it sounds like a nice haul!Originally Posted by Poomba

I think you can wear them with all sorts of denim, chinos, moleskins, and cords.
When I was trying on a pair of boots today, I was sitting next to a couple, where the wife or gf talked the guy out of getting both the Ironside Alt Weins and the Ironside Indys. Crazy. And by the way, the overwhelming majority of women walking around the Brooklyn neighborhood were wearing head to toe yoga/althleisure wear. Really tiring and cliche'd.post #52618 of 587294/16/16 at 7:00pmQuote:Originally Posted by bry2000
