Thanks!
Can't comment on sizing relative to the loopwheel but many people size up from their typical shirt size for the henleys (which are awesome)

I got the henleys in the XL and they are pretty form fitting on me. I wore it yesterday with my essex trucker jacket. 

 

The henley did relax a little throughout the day but most likely have to keep it in cold water and hang dry or it may shrink in the dryer. I do like a looser fit than most guys on here though.

First really warm day off from work requires this EP shirt from last year.

Unspoilered for the Guatamalan.  Love that shirt!

Get the XL. I have same issues.

@Don L thanks and enjoy them! I'm thrilled with how that made up too, the Alt Wien shape is really boss on the Plaza last.

@duff406 finished and awaiting pickup. We've been coordinating a huge ass shipment from Portugal that should fly any day now.

And on feet, they look as tough as any boots I've seen. Excellent work on these...if I'd only had a chance to see them in person sooner, I would've jumped on them earlier. (Though I sure can't complain about the price I got!) These are my first pair of Epaulet footwear (actually my first Epaulet purchase!), but they sure won't be my last.

 

Which leads me to a general note - is it possible to get straight-on profile shots of Epaulet's own shoes and boots in the future? It'd be a huge help for me in getting a sense of how the shapes compare to other footwear, since so many other brands and retailers always have at least one shot directly to the side of the shoe. I thought the Calgary was a bulkier last than it turned out to be, but that's largely because the photos just made it look that way. Dayton has the same issue. After being so surprisingly impressed by the Calgaries, I'd hate for anybody else to mis-perceive the shape of a last and hesitate to purchase like I did. And we all know that amazing product shots can drive sales, too...(*cough*)

 

Also, I missed the mention before of a suede blouson coming. Very psyched. Can't wait to see the jackets.

 

Oh, and I'm seriously digging the Cardiffs, too. :D

 

@Callusing glad that you dig them - thanks for the writeup! And yes, doing a straight profile shot is a good idea, I used to do it but kind of fell off the wagon. 

 

I'm planning to have a proper studio at our LA office and to have a local photographer on call. Right now I shoot 95% of the pictures, so it will be good to have someone else on board. You guys can expect all of our creative to go up a few notches after the move.

All you SoCal guys who want to show support for the L.A. Rams, that's your boot.

 

@applky yup, that's exactly right - the ram medallion is a Plaza exclusive

I think that you can safely go up to the XL, the Union Jersey really doesn't stretch or shrink very much. And the raglan sleeves mean a good fit in the shoulders even if it's a touch big.

@TommyB the legendary Guatemalan jacquard! The craziest fabric we ever made a shirt out of! Looks good against that backdrop

@Epaulet those new swatches are killer. Really love that Laguna one. I was looking at those this morning and I thought they were new but I wasn't sure if I just hadn't noticed them before haha. Do you guys have any plans for prints from Individualized?

@Nik Telford cool - I really like Laguna too! I think that it's going to make up like an obnoxious 1980s shirt, but in the best way possible. I'm definitely ordering that prior to my LA move. I just need a white 1985 Porsche 911 and some Cazal glasses to go with it. 

 

We've haven't gotten any prints in a while, so honestly I'm not sure. I just get a surprise envelope of swatches every Friday. We're going to be on top of keeping it updated.

Speaking of Individualized.. got a new video for you guys! These Thomas Mason fabrics are absolutely killer. We sold three of those Gingham-ish ones in the store last weekend:

If anyone needs a belt for their Calgary boots, I came across these today that look like they could be a decent pairing.

Thanks! Just ordered the 3 pack in XL and a LS thermal and SS henley in L for layering- I have been looking at henleys for a LONG time but couldn't justify spending Merz B. or Homespun prices on one, so buying 5 now should hold me over for some time.

Also bought the Horween brown and navy belts on closeout last week - AMAZING leather quality on those.

@Epaulet What's the lead time on an MTO suit?  Have a trip lined up end of June and wondering if I order now, will the suit make it on time?

@lifeinabox they're cranking them out in four weeks reliably, so we can hit that date without the rush up-charge. If you can order over the weekend so we can submit first thing on Monday, that'd be ideal. Just holler if you have any questions or need help with fabrics.

@unclesam099 Excellent - and glad that you dig the belts!
