WHAT

When did this happen? Will we be able to order that shape from Hertling going forward?

Hey guys - the Somelos shirts are definitely washed pretty heavily, so nearly all of the shrinkage should be out of them. We've sold about 300 units so far and this is the first that I've heard of any problems. But a couple things:

1) Try ironing out the sleeves. When oxfords and plain weaves are pressed, the sleeves can sometimes gain up to a half inch. That might do the trick.

2) Cold wash / hang dry is the best method to clean all of our shirts. Warm water and tumble dry is also okay. But if the white shirt is thrown in with other whites and washed in hot water or a somewhat hot drying cycle, that can zap some length on it. Could be what happened.

3) Try the iron. If that doesn't fix it, then we'll exchange it out for a new shirt.

 

My "same" was in response to the post I quoted from El Argentino: "My Somelos sleeves started out shorter than an EPNY equivalent oxford, but haven't noted any subsequent shrinkage myself."

 

My only point is the sleeves are just a bit shorter. I have about a dozen OCBDs from Epaulet (and many more shirts using different fabrics) and the Somelos was delivered with the shortest sleeves. I've worn it a bunch and there hasn't been any extra shrinkage. I have no complaints, just noting my sleeve length experience.

@Patrick R oh gotcha.. cool. Yes, they Somelos are a bit shorter by nature than our EPNY from New England, but that's mostly the difference between pre- and post-wash. The Salt wash process is pretty intensive - it's stronger than a typical machine, so things really shouldn't change after that. All cottons contract and expand with washes and wear though. You see that with jeans - they're significantly shorter right after a wash. 

 

Yeah, I'm thinking that @duff406 's experience was due to a hot wash and/or dry with other whites. Ironing/pressing may resolve that, that if not the exchange offer still stands for him.

Mine was washed cold once and hung to dry. I measured it after wearing and the sleeves are just a hair over 25". It's hanging to dry again and I'll measure after I iron it and see where it comes out. Otherwise it's a lovely shirt and fit through the body is pretty perfect.

With sizing of various Epaulet shirt fits being discussed always meant to ask -  question on the New England fit - does NE make up smaller for most people (when compared to Gitman and EPNY)?

 

ETA - those cords look amazing

Going thru our Fall Hertling stuff right now. Can't believe that I forgot about this, but we'll be offering the two best corduroy fabrics in the history of mankind...

 

 

We haven't seen this fabric since 2010. It is UNREAL. Here's some fit pics from when we had it. It looks purplish, but that's just the stupid phone filter I was using. It's more of a steel grey, with the slightest bit of a purple cast in sunlight. 

 

 

It's one of the most "Styleforum" fabrics I've ever seen. If you like our pants, then you'll definitely want to grab a pair during next week's promo. They've got enough to make about 72 pairs in each colors, but there's no way that will last past the start of the season.

Ah the infamous Tword.... Keep it all coming!  Those look like 2 winners right there! 

post #55433 of 57879
@Epaulet will those cords be offered in all fits?
post #55434 of 57879
@Epaulet any other notable swatches you could tease us with?
post #55435 of 57879
I still own the #2130 Tword (Cordureed?), it's a fantastic fabric. Must. Buy. Other. Color.

How heavy in weight is the fabric?
post #55437 of 57879
Can't speak to the oz weight, but it's skewed more towards winter cord than Bedford cord, maybe 60/40. That's zero help, sorry.

The Steamed Milk Cotton-Linen Walts are simply amazing.

@mschapiro. I hope these pics help. I tried to show how sheer the blue Danube is compared to the Thomas mason linen. As you can see you can kind see through the Danube more than Thomas Mason. I think the weave is tighter on the Thomas mason. I have a forum shot to and one with my hand behind the cloth. Take into consideration I have a tan/ olive complexion. The last pic is with the 2 ply 120's window pane that I also ordered to show comparison between the white linen and white cotton. Hope this helps
