Whoops - went back to my cart to pull the trigger on the ironside alt wiens to discover they're all gone. This is how it goes, right Frank?

LOL, very few parts of Brooklyn aren't these days.

If these were 9.5, I would initiate the negotiations :)... By the way, does anyone have a pair of Brooklyn store sale Aldens in 9.5 that's he's willing to part with?... Or, for that matter, a Medium leather jacket?

Late to the party, but big congratulations to Mike and Adele for their cross country move. I hope to see more of them now that we'll be on the same coast.

Hey guys!

 

We are emerging from the Brooklyn store closing beatdown! It was wonderful to see everyone who came by and a total success for us. The store is being taken over by an independent bag label, so it's great to see it going into the right hands. We can now start making concrete plans for the big LA move. I'll keep everyone updated as that progresses.

On the other hand, that sale turned up an overdyed indigo LBM jacket that has apparently had my name on it since like 2014... You win some, you lose some.   

 

For anyone still thinking about making the trip, word from the wise is that today is sock day.

 

@mattp great seeing you! And that jacket was an awesome score - total one-off piece. That was the only linen overdye one too.

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.

 

@bry2000 thanks for the kind words and the support - great seeing you!

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.

 

@SherifEnt thanks so much for the kind words-  it was great meeting you! Thanks for bringing your family by despite all the chaos in there.

This shirt is straight fire gangsta.


Went with the double button. Sort of a French Cuff feel to it.

@metranger8694 that shirt came out rad on you! Let's wear it at the same time and start up a gang

@ Mike
Will the field jacket shirk at all still or did the enzyme wash pretty much take that out?

 

@L.I.T. glad that you dig it! I wore mine all weekend. No more shrinkage on that at all.

End of an era for the Brooklyn store. I'll definitely swing by. Sounds like a great move Mike, congratulations!

 

@MaxK thanks for all of the support over the years - we'll miss you guys!

What color are people doing for the waffleknit cardigan? I want something super versatile but not too boring (like charcoal... no offense to anyone getting charcoal). I'm waffling between mocha, pacific blue, and derby (though I'm not even sure what color derby is). 

post #52644 of 59840

Sample sale was great and a lot of fun!

 

Picked up two great mismeasured individualized shirts, even though Mike told me I'd be too fat for them.

I am actually considering the  waffleknit in purple heather.  I was considering doing something more conservative however after talking with Mike I am leaning toward the purple heather. I love the mocha but I think it may be too dark and kind of obscure the detail of the waffleknit

Too funny.

I wonder how the Purple Canclini woulda looked with an Artisan Collar?!

@SherifEnt oh man, the purple heather would be unstoppable in that shape!

@metranger8694 we just got in the "Finestra" shirt in chambray (Artisan collar, dual flap chest pockets, shoulder epaulets) and its unspeakably rad. I'll have fit photos in it soon!

Even a master of shirt measurements can be wrong sometimes, haha

 

Those were originally detailed by @sacafotos - he was the dude to pick out those baller fabrics!

I might do oatmeal in the waffle knit, but was also considering derby. Might just need to get both.

Derby would be nice. i think bordeaux is the choice for me
