Bummer about the museum sneaks. But suppose that's how these things go.

Like a few guys mentioned here, there are the only short socks that I wear:

I can't recommend them enough. They're incredibly comfortable and long-wearing. Really the most comfortable athletic socks that I've ever owned. 

 

They're not true no-shows, and they're definitely visible. The trade-off is worth it for me, as I've been mostly frustrated by no-shows. I wear them with all of our sneakers, and also with Nike's and such. I think that they work great with that, although they'd be overpowering for a dress shoe or loafers with shorts.

 I have just got the Emerald Salt Wash shirt [in size "small"] from you. I am looking for a matching trouser. I intend to wear both with dress shoes and dress belts. [both shades of brown- Allen Edmonds Tan and Bourbon] Could you suggest a good color and make of Epaulet trouser for me please ?  

   I am giving herewith my specifications- 

1. I am 5-7 in height. 

2. I intend to wear the outfit at a Summer time Professional Conference,where I will be wearing this among some suit-wearing folks.  

3. I have slim to medium built.       

If you or the other learned members of StyleForum can please  provide some suggestions, it will be very helpful.     

 [ I was wondering about the Duck Caramel but I am not sure that will look good with the shirt-but maybe it will-I am open to suggestions].         

Thanks to everyone that replies in advance.                  

 

@StyleinStyle thanks for picking it up and glad that you like the shirt. That emerald color is killer, I loved it when I first saw it at Somelos. 

 

I would go with either a khaki or a grey trouser to match it. I'd agree that the Caramel is going to be a pretty strong contrast. This is what I'd advise: 

 

First up is a super-basic pant that's really brilliant. This fabric is supremely light and comfortable and the trouser matches everything. Meant for the warm weather, but you can wear this well into late October. 

 

WALT TROUSER COTTON LIGHTWEIGHT KHAKI TWILL: $175

 

Next is our new basic grey dress trouser. We wanted to make the best basic pant in the world for the money. It's got a whole story at the link, but in short: we sold about a hundred of them last week and they've been really well received. Great option if you need a staple grey wool dress pant. 

 

WALT PORTO TROUSER GREY BARBERIS 4-SEASON WOOL PIQUE: $165

I'll try to get a better picture in natural light as this doesn't do it justice, but the purple with the green set off against the white and muted blues and reds is just perfect. Glad I went w/ the band collar and short sleeves on this one.

 

 

 

@Duke Silver really nice choices on those, thanks for posting the pic!

Bravo to whomever wrote the copy on the summer Rivets. That blue oxford looks pretty dope

 

@ReversoLover haha, that was all David - our usual pant model and sales guy. He's taking over the bulk of the copywriting for new items.

@eljlakers yeah, my apologies on that, we're late on the Massdrop stuff too. Europeans are always confident about dates when you place the order, but if things are running slowly on their side, you just have to deal with it. I even padded 8 weeks onto the Museum calf turnaround, as they originally quoted us first week of June

Flannel ideas for Fall Portugal shirts

 

Hey guys!
 

So, I'm working out my Fall shirting with the "Salt Wash" factory. Got some swatches to run by you. I'll probably settle on about 3 from this collection. Holler if anything jumps out at you. Figure that this would fall in the $95-$110 price.

That green is pretty great looking. I feel like I can find red and blue checks in flannels all day long but that green is a bit more unique.

@Epaulet The 2nd from the top would be an instakop for me.

Speaking of Portugal shirts, are those denim ones you mentioned a while back still in the pipeline?
post #54892 of 57679

Agreed, seconded on the green check. 

post #54893 of 57679
The last and 3rd to last would be instacop for me.
post #54894 of 57679

2nd and 3rd are great.

post #54895 of 57679
Agreed on 2nd and 3rd
post #54896 of 57679

Hot last week. Lots of blue and hopsack.

 

 

 

EP x Southwick navy hopsack SC MTO from forever ago

EP x Gitman Ashland shirt

Gray hopsack/fresco Walts

EP x Carmina caramel double monks (not pictured)

Vanda tie and square

post #54897 of 57679

Agreed, thanks guys, I think that #2 and #3 (the grey/blue tattersall and the green/charcoal tattersall) are the two best of the bunch. 

 

The other patterns are a bit more common, but I'll probably run at least one of them. 

post #54898 of 57679
#2 & #3 for me too!
post #54899 of 57679

Mike - fabric #3 would definitely be a purchase from me as well - thanks for sharing!  Question - are these going to be made up as a lightweight flannel?   What will the materials/finish be?

@AloysiusSF yes, these fabrics are all on the lighter side. They'd be done in the same model as the Salt Wash Oxford - so that big B/D collar, chest pocket, and the whole salt wash process. 

 

For heavier flannels, we'll have some ass-kickers from Gitman & New England, and a whole bunch of MTO options with Individualized.

 

The plan for these swatches is to choose a few good colors and make something off the rack that's cheap and cheerful.
