I was in NYC this past Sunday and met up with Mike & Adele for brunch with my wife. It was great to finally meet them in person. Had some excellent food and friendly conversation at Remedy Diner, then headed over to the Orchard Street store for a quick look around before heading off for more touristy stuff. Would've hung out at the shop longer (and left with a bag of stuff, I'm sure) if we had more time, but we were only in the city for 24 hours and had to pack as much into that space as possible. Going through the shirt and pants racks was like going through my Topps card collection. "Need it, got it, got it, need it, need it, got it..." Too fun! Mike, thanks for meeting up with us. It was a real pleasure, and I hope to do it again real soon! - K
Thanks Keith, it was great meeting you guys too! Glad that you had such a slamming time in NYC.

You bet. Our next delivery of shirts is scheduled to drop in about two weeks. Got a chambray mashup, gingham mashup, a bananas new double-faced cloth, and a new-colorway reissue of an all-time legendary fabric (all that I can reveal at the moment).

That was you?!? You left out the part where you paired those slashed pants with pointy boots, a cross tunic, and an enormous rubber horse mask: I have to say Sazon, this is a radical change in your usual style!

Oh yes. In fact, a little birdie told me that we're getting more light blue chambray trousers within the next few days. I'll post up the link here when the restock arrives.

Thanks for the order, glad that you dig the seersucker!

Haha, we've actually got a denim CPO jacket in the works for fall. I'll get the sample in a week or so. It's going to be a "hardcore" collab piece.

Yes! A gonzo amount of new Epaulet Sewn by Hand shoes just arrived and will go online early next week. The penny comes in three different leathers for this delivery.

Right on, I'm SO thrilled that you dig the honey tattersall. It's the first yellow-ish shirt that we've done, and I really loved that fabric. It's so old school and the hand on it is great. Thanks for picking it up!
While I'm building out all the new shoes & such that arrived, I've got a quick update for you. We just introduced our "Girlfriend Shirts" in two new fabrics for Spring. We made these in a small way last season, but they've proved really popular, so we're expanding the lines for ladies.
Here's the new pieces for Spring. They're made in the same place and to the same standards of construction and fabric as our mens shirts. So if a lady in your life loves your shirts, we've now got some for her too.
And if you're interested but have NO idea of what size to get, just hit us up - Adele's an expert at figuring it out.

Want. Want. Want. Want. I actually happen to even need some of this stuff.
emailed my g/f the EP email with the new shirts for girls....await her response. Hope she likes one (or both)..
Absolutely no sunlight today, but just wanted to post a (blurry) pic of the super 120's which are a great spring/summer weight....really light and breezy while still easily holding down that formal look you need in a pair of slacks for work. I haven't been working very much lately and thus have only worn these a handful of times, but threw these on to have lunch today with a friend (need a pressing, but hopefully you can see the nice silhouette and fit of the slacks despite that and the lack of natural light...).
and just real quick while I'm here - the white Oxford seen below is the EP OCBD dressed down...great shirt, as a lot of us now know..
Just got the shipping notification for the penny's pre-order. I'm already checking the forecast hoping for a nice warm day to rock them and the patch madras shorts. Equally excited about the chino restock, I'm itching to add another pair (or two) to the collection.
I'm not one of those guys who *needs* to be in a serious relationship all of the time, but seeing that girlfriend colorblock shirt is making me pretty upset that I don't have a gal to cloak with that. If I saw a girl around here wearing something like that, I'd probably throw my keys at her and ask her to move in with me.
Gotta run now; have to go start rumor that slack tide was Christian Bale's stand in for The Machinist.
Was wondering if anyone here has purchased one of the canvas briefcases for sale from EP and what their experiences were? I am in the market for a briefcase but was hoping I could get some input on these, first.
