Kind of think it looks best with a t-shirt and a pair of side-zips, in the rock 'n' roll spirit of the collection. What do you guys think? Is that 'allowed'?
The fabric on this thing is amazing.
this has been discussed before but it's a recurring thread that seems to get brought up every now and then. a lot of those guys view WAYWT as harsh or too snarky, or just not in line with the style they are going for (which is not true at all; look at Parker or MoK). my past suggestions to post in WAYWT are typically never heeded and like you suggest, it's tough to be the only one to start offering critique in a brand's thread where people are just showing off pieces from that brand.
but epaulet has also moved more towards MC casual from when they first showed up selling raw denim, moleskin trousers, and flannel shirts. a lot of these guys are office workers who are looking mainly for a slightly-better-than-jcrew look with better construction, materials, etc., so a lot of it is going to end up looking like a better-fitting version of the ask andy trad forum.
Plus, a lot of the ones who are copping left and right just need time for their shit to actually get old and develop some wrinkles and scuffs here and there, I dunno.
