Hey guys,

If you have a chance, check out my trouser thread and let me know what you think about these deadstock fabrics. We're going to confirm our order tomorrow.

Got the McNairy brown suede captoes yesterday. Mike you were spot on in recommending the 11.5's. Fit like a charm. Little bit narrow in the toebox but I'm sure it will stretch a little bit. Look forward to the upcoming releases! edit: also dig the grey donegal tweed and cherry red fabrics...make those up!

Any update on the exploded flannel or black wool trousers?

Awesome - thanks again Jamie! Glad that the shoes worked out. And we're looking pretty definite on both of those trousers.

And "holy shit" on the thought of those red cord's paired with the McNairy Captoe boots and a white pinpoint oxford.

Hey Eric,

Still waiting on this. Our trouser dudes are tied up for the one-off pants. Was hoping for the Exploded Check to come this Friday, but it looks like that might get pushed back until around 2/25. Old-school manufacturing unfortunately comes with old-school speed if a key person's sick or on holiday. Sorry for the delay - you'll be the first to know once these hit.

Hey Mike - I purchased some of the Epaulet/SF flannels a while back in size XL. At first I thought they were a bit too large, but after a few washes and wearings, they seemed to shrink up marginally and they now fit me well. I plan to purchase some of your upcoming shirts - should I go with XL again or size down to L? I read others saying that the flannels seemed to feel just a smidgen larger when new than other Epaulet shirts. This has pretty much confirmed to me that I should stick with the same size, but thought I'd confirm. Otherwise I may be in the dreaded "between sizes" territory

I like the trouser selections however are you planning on doing a slim fit pant for the warming months?

Thanks! I'd stick with the XL - especially as these with make up a bit smaller than the flannel. If anything, you'll probably like the fit of the new shirts better.

Oh absolutely. Alongside a few specialties like Blue linen chambray (oh my god) and Bordeaux cotton and seersucker, we're going to run three basics: 1. Italian Gabardine: This is an all-season cotton trouser. Really beautiful light khaki fabric. It will be a great piece with the ease of a chino but a little more dressed up with the Walt shape. Guaranteed that it will be once of the nicest feeling cotton trousers that you've ever met. We'll get these mid-Feb. 2. Dark Grey Tropical Wool: Great lightweight wool to wear from the early Spring to Fall. You can pull these off in the summer too without schvitzing to death. Coming mid-March. 3. Navy Poplin: really lightweight and soft cotton pant. You can roll up the cuffs and wear it on the beach. Poplin tends to wrinkle easily, so it will be a great casual piece.

Oh wow, they sound great. Seeing as it's so humid down here I'll have to keep my eyes out for the Bordeux, and poplin pants.

Hi there! I'm considering getting a pair of either the black or indigo jeans, and was curious if there were any pics of how they've faded over time? Thanks!

We just launched these about four weeks ago, so we're still too early for faded pics of the actual jeans, but these are shots of a 5yr old pair of jeans made in the same deadstock Cone Mills Denim. These were faded by a denim champion and you can see the full potential...

Very Impressive fades Mike, I'm sure the EP's owners will be very pleased with their results. Will you be restocking your oxfords soon?

Any update on the Gant selvedge oxfords?

Thank you - that guy is a master-fader. He's taking no prisoners.

And yes, we'll expect a full restock of Pinpoint oxfords by the first week of Feb.

It's looking like first week of Feb on that too - along with the Gant outerwear pieces. These are going to be awesome.

Since the exploded flannel got pushed back is it still possible to get in on a preorder for one? I was looking to grab one in an XS since they sell out so quick

Just received my Alden suede chukkas and wanted to thank Mike publicly for his spot on customer service.
