post #54331 of 57808

In other news, the Epaulet suits came in. Holy s***, I'm thrilled with them. 

 

I want to talk about the marketing strategy with you guys in the next few days, because I think that they're really unique. You won't believe how light and comfortable these jackets are. The fit is really excellent and this 110's cloth is great. We took some very quick preview shots of the DB. I'm wearing a 40 for reference. I take a 40 Vittorio, a 41 Southwick, a Large Epaulet shirt, Large Field Jacket, Size EU50 Suede Blouson...

 

 

 

 

This is going to be priced at $545, and the SB will be $495. It's been a long road for development, but our Portugal collection is really coming together. It's easy to make something that's really expensive and nice, but much harder to crank out something with price constraints that still adheres to our principals. I'm really proud of this item and impressed with our factory. This is the best DB on the market for this price, bar none. And the comfort level is really exceptional.

trying to pick between the milk chocolate pindot or the iron olive, thoughts? Both seem like rich, versatile colors. Maybe I need to see the videos later. @Epaulet thoughts on whether the iron olive would be okay under a blue (not navy) sport coat?

@epaulet congrats Mike! What a dope jacket.

Do you think these will be stocked pretty regularly?

Me too. Am I missing the videos or have they not gone up yet? Always get a better sense watching those.

 

@Epaulet Any opinions between the two? About the same weight? Does either one have a softer hand/better drape?

No spoilers. Too good to not repost.

@tricky thank you! Yup, it's the plan to keep the Navy & Grey suit in stock most of the time - at least the SB jacket. This incoming delivery has 20 SB jackets and 8 DB jackets per color.

@Duke Silver I didn't get a chance to do them yet - going to put them online tomorrow along with the NL launch.

@trig @Duke Silver 

 

Milk Chocolate Pindot would make a good suiting fabric. It's a strong shade of brown and it's a typical suiting weight. Very soft and smooth hand. 

 

Feldmaus has a very subtle brown cast and is a lighter tropical wool with a "dry" hand. 

 

Both of them have their place. Feldmaus is definitely more wearable - there's very few things that it wouldn't go with. But Chocolate Pindot reads as a brown dress trouser. 

 

I'd personally choose Feldmaus for the better versatility. That fabric comes from Comero in Italy and it's really very cool. I'd do it in the Taylor shape.

Reminds me of the navy LBM DB I picked up in a 40 awhile ago.

@edubs01 both of them are from the same collection and have a grey base. Air Force is a grey base with some blue and Iron Olive is a grey base with some green. Both of them are great, but the Air Force is more basic. It reads as a grey trouser more or less. You've got a pretty boss collection of pants as it stands, so maybe do the Iron Olive - we've never offered anything like that before.

@TO Tie Guy 

 

It's $595 for the SB suit, $645 for the DB Suit. Trousers are only Walt Fit, but I'm going to try them on tomorrow and see if it's possible to size up and make them work. Will advise.

I hope they will work. We are about the same size. If so, my kop freeze is over!!

Hey Mike out of curiosity, do you think it would be possible to do flat front Taylor's at some point? I love them as they are but I would also love some higher rise flat front trousers too!
