Hey everyone,

It's now live!
https://www.massdrop.com/buy/epaulet-sports-trainer

We're back with our second Styleforum x Massdrop collaboration, and this time around I'm very excited to be partnering with Epaulet to offer a GMTO on one of their classic items - the Sport Trainer

For those that need it, here's a little background:

I work for an e-commerce company called Massdrop, a site that helps product enthusiasts organize group buys for their favorite products (and in doing so, leverage a better price than an individual could get). I head up the men's style vertical there, and I have been working with @LA Guy
 to bring some fun GMTOs to the Styleforum community. For our first collab, we worked with Panta to offer Ed's classic "Madder" ties in colors not available on his site - we ended up selling 350 ties (and could have kept going had there been more fabric available!). 

For this project, we're offering Epaulet's Sport Trainer in the classic white calfskin and grey suede mudguard combo, along with one choice from the mockups below. Here's how this process will work:

1. First, we'll let Styleforum members vote on their favorite mockup below. Note that we will only choose ONE of these to go alongside the classic white/grey, and each member only has one vote. Choose carefully. 
2. At close of business on Thursday 3/3 we'll end the poll and the number one choice will be included in the drop.
3. On Friday 3/4, we'll open up preorders on Massdrop and move the conversation over there. The drop will be up on the site for about a week, and during that time you can submit/edit your preorder, discuss color and fit options, etc. 
4. More info like pricing, delivery times, etc will be available when the drop goes live. 


Here are the candidates! Remember: the white/gray classic will be offered no matter what, and only the number one pick from the choices below will be included.

Hey guys!

 

Thanks for all of the feedback so far. We're really excited to work with Massdrop and @brillopad on this project. Couple of things from us: 

 

1) Here's images of the White Calf / Grey Suede Sport Trainer. This classic colorway will be offered alongside the top choice of these four mockups. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Alabaster is a gorgeous, slightly off-white color! Here's a real-life photo of it...

 

 

And a mockup of how that would look with the forest green accents...

 

 

 

 

3. For an idea of the Grey Calfskin / Navy suede model, check this out. Bit a quick and dirty mockup, so please excuse the rough edges.

I wonder if anyone has given their Epaulet sport trainers a Margiela-esk paint treatment?
