I see that now.

I doubt that Epaulet and J.Crew Factory are competing for customers... "Well, I was going to get these $265 boutique, Made in USA wool trousers, but maybe I'll get these $29.50 Made in Vietnam outlet brand chinos instead, considering they're both called Driggs!"

Just put in another big Individualized order! I need to go on a shirt spending freeze haha. I have so many now. After this I need to start buying more trousers (until I see another shirt I really want).

I hear you on the Individualized shirts. I've got maybe three more shirt ideas, but being self-employed I really need to take most of the rest of the money for my business... biggrin.gif

They're pretty hard to say no to honestly, a massive selection of fabrics, great price for mtm, great fit, and if you buy 4 you get one free. The nice thing is that you can make up a great amount of casual and formal, and with the amount of customization options you can create a really versatile selection. After this order im going to have 5 button down collared shirts, 5 Artisan collared shirts, 1 point collar, 1 band collar, 1 curved spread. Plus I have a solid spectrum of casual to formal with all that. After this though I think I ought to stick with buying trousers and chinos for a while, I need to expand my collection in that regard too.

@Epaulet what season fabric is the Hertling trouser event on Tuesday?

Despite the perfect summer weather lately, I ordered my suede blouson last night, can't wait!

@Epaulet Could you remind me, are you planning on any suede GYW PTB's? I believe you indicated probably not in your first post on this, but not sure if that was final.

So I had a style reality check this weekend. I live in the DC area and travel quite a bit for work - mostly big cities and conferences with pretty well-dressed folks (not Pitti, but folks wearing well fitting sport coats and pants, and not-too-terrible shoes). 

 

Well, this weekend was my parents' 50th anniversary party in the suburbs of Chicago, and wow. Maybe this just speaks to the style of my extended family, but out of my four male first cousins who attended, three were wearing shorts (two with Teva-esque shoes, and one with Vans). All three were wearing cheapo polo shirts made of varying polyester "dry-fit" type fabrics (even though it was clear exercise is not a priority for any of them). One of the three was in all black, including a blacked-out baseball cap with sunglasses sitting on the brim, black cargo shorts, and shitty TJ Maxx black athletic socks. The fourth male cousin was dressed neatly if totally unremarkably, but stood out like a bright shining beacon. It gets better. The husband of one of my female cousins also came in shorts and Vans, while the boyfriend of another came in a backward-turned fitted Cubs cap. All six of these men, mind you, are in their 30s or 40s.

 

Bear in mind, this was my parents' 50th wedding anniversary! To put it lightly, it was an utter disgrace. I'm not a guy who's averse to casual wear. I live in shorts and Nikes and Vans (and EP sneaks!) in summer. But when it's time to look nice, make an effort. I was appalled, but kept it to myself. Needless to say, my dad (who is an inspiration for me in terms of dressing for an occasion) was nattily attired, and I rocked an EP shirt, chinos, and Rancourt loafers and looked like freaking Gianni Agnelli out there relative to the competition. In a better world, I worn a sportcoat, but I had to consciously dial it down for my adolescent-inspired relatives.

 

Just generally disgusted that a bunch of grown feel it's okay to look like little children at such a momentous event. I remember my grandparents' 50th anniversary party almost three decades ago and everyone looked so put together - they took time to make it a special occasion. Yesterday, the number of people wearing running shoes/flip flops/Tevas/Skechers outnumbered those wearing proper nice shoes 10-1 (and I'm not even talking $300 shoes - I would have gladly accepted some Bostonians).

 

I'll be frank, normally I like being one of the people in the room who's noticed for being well-put together, but last night made me feel ridiculous for my family. Anyway, rant over. Hope everyone had a great weekend. And let's all pray for the folks in Orlando. We've clearly got bigger issues in this country than sloppy dress.

Suburban Chicago is a wasteland.

Unfortunately, I think you could replace that with Suburban_______.

1) I have a family wedding this summer. "Cocktail attire" suggested. Oh God...

2) It is a pet peeve when people dress selfishly. Your relatives did that here. Their comfort/laziness was more important than the celebrants' anniversary. However, I find it equally selfish to over dress. Don't show up to a BBQ looking like your are LARPing a day at Royal Ascot, either.

@Epaulet Mike, could you elaborate on the salt washing process for me? I am not familiar with it an am curious as to its differences / benefits from say enzyme washing. Thanks!

Agree 100 percent. Part of dressing well is knowing the context and occasion.
