My size medium EPNY shirts are a little snug now, so I sized up to large on the Persian blue linen. Pretty good fit on the body now, but the sleeves are slightly long. The tag says I can launder the shirt - does linen shrink much in the wash? Either way I've got a good point of reference for some MTO shirts.

Is it possible to get edge stitching on the Individualized shirts? Planning on ordering a few more soon in the spring/summer fabrics, but the 1/4" stitching means the placet crinkles really bad on the lighter fabrics.

@ahjota you can do edge stitching on the collar and cuffs, just note that in the special comments. 

 

They don't do edge stitching on plackets, but you can note a French placket for the front. I haven't had an issue with the standard placket on the fabrics that I've ordered, but it just comes down to your taste. I have a bunch of new fabrics going live tomorrow morning with the newsletter, including some amazing Albini Thomas Mason linens.

It will probably shrink a bit in sleeve and body length, so that might bring them up right into the zone. You can certainly have the sleeves tailored too. That fabric is incredible and was an off-price buy from Gitman to hit our retail, so IMO it's definitely worth some tailoring if you dig it.

Epaulet Footwear Preview

 

Hey guys, 

 

I'm going to show you a lot of samples over the next two weeks :)

 

Here's the first batch. On my last trip to Portugal, I met with two shoe factories: the guys who did our Combat Boots (Blake Stitch) and a new Goodyear Welt facility. My plan is to put together a tight collection of Fall styles that hit a range of price points and dress-to-casual positioning. 

 

The Blake Stitch styles will fall in the mid-$200's and skew more casual. They'll have a lightweight leather & rubber combination sole. And I'll look to run them in a combination of basic leathers (Couro Cromo) and special stuff (Couro Cavalo Horsehide). Like the sneakers, they can be a really competitive and affordable product for the guy who's just getting into better footwear, or a fun and easy item for someone who already owns a bunch of high-end stuff. 

 

Here's two boots. The Chelsea is Graphite Couro Cavalho Horsehide. It's a rad front-quarter skin with great character. The grain is irregular and kind of all over the place. It gives the boot a weathered appearance without any kind of treatment. Very comfortable on the first wear too. 

 

 

 

 

This Jodphur is a deep rust suede: 

 

 

 

 

Now next up is our Plain Toe Blucher. As you guys saw from the Brooklyn closing sale, the "Derby Shoe" didn't quite kill it. We did okay with it in-store, but it never proved popular online - which is where we do the majority of our sales. I think that it was too much of a middle product. Not cool enough for the casual guy and kind of unremarkable for the dressy guy. So we'll make two items to fill this in the future. The Goodyear PTB will be very refined (Annonay Calf or Comipel shell, closed channel, double leather or Dainite) and I want the Blake PTB to be a more relaxed style. I cooked this up: 

 

 

 

 

^ Pricing on this would be in the low-200s, like the Sport Trainer. As Couro Calvalho gets lighter in tone, it gets a little crazier with grain and color variation. Not sure if that's a good thing. You can see that it's pretty irregular on this sample in this light greenish-grey color. 

 

And, here's one other thing, although I'll warn you that it's fairly insane....

 

 

 

 

^ Yup, I sampled out the Tennis Trainer in genuine Cayman Crocodile. The cutter did an absolutely phenomenal job with it - this is a challenging skin to work with. I'm not sure where we'll go with this - it's definitely going to be expensive, but we could probably offer it as an individual MTO in a range of colors. As long as it's the Tennis shape, we could even offer a range of sole options too. Certainly a specific item, but I'm thinking that stuff like this and the Stingray are good ways to set us apart from the pack - even if they only sell to a very small portion of our crowd.

That last looks killer. PTB shape is perfect

HaHa. Those PTBs are fantastic, but those Croc Sneakers are just insanely off the hook.

I thought so too.

Anyone jump in the Batik from last month? I couldn't justify squeezing it into the clothing budget at this point in time, so I have to live vicariously through someone.
