    Mike, I see that there is an option to do a special order for UK Navy Sanded Canvas in Rudy cut. Is it possible to do it in Walt cut?

    You can ask for price adjustment.

    Interested in a couple of sale items and I have a couple of questions:

    If TTS, does the topcoat have enough room if worn over a suit?

    Also, for the Weller sports coats, are they comparable to slim/custom fit stuff from say, RL (e.g., RLBL)? I do not own any Epaulet and unfortuantely moved out of NYC. :(

    On a side note, has there been a navy blue sports coat with patch pockets? I've been in the market for one...

    Ugh that sale just did some damage on my wallet. :)
    Great prices though.

    Mike, a while back I think you mentioned a Chessboard Tweed jacket MTO was possible - if so, what's the pricing on that?

    I'm going to recommend those Barena knit sportcoats to everyone. I'm very tempted to get another color in that (I have the green). Sizing is very true to EP sizing overall. I went with a 40, which is the same I go for in other EP SCs.

    Lots of other great stuff in there...

    Here's the green Barena with heavyweight Tweed Walts and Third coast lake effect snow. The knit coat has something a Tyrolean look to me.

    The Wellers aren't as slim as the RLBL sport / suit coats. I'm a 42L in RLBL but a 40 (and should be a long) in the Weller.

    Please let us choose the new collar! I'd love the white and blue oxfords, but not with the old collar.

    Mike,

    When do you think the new Rivets will be released?

    Thanks!

    the saddest part about you guys not keeping size 28s in stock is that they don't make it to sale :(

    Couldn't help grabbing a couple of tweeds and the burgundy Hopsack.

    In a pinch, a size 30 can be altered to fit like a 28 for not too much money. It may be more economical to purchase a size 30 if it's on sale and have it tapered and brought in at the waist then special ordering a 28 at full retail.

    Went with the navy one. Had been considering this for a bit and with the recent reduction, seemed a no-brainer. And yes, love the weather we've been having here in Chicago

    Sure thing, what style are you looking for in particular? Our next delivery is slated for about 2-3 weeks.



    The OTR jacket will probably have horn buttons to coordinate with the trousers, but we can of course MTO it with smoke buttons and self patches. No problemo.


    We're in the early development stage of it right now. We'll use the Rivet chino fit with a felled back seam and the softest twill that I can find. Actually I'll start with the softest twill and then we'll wash the hell out of it. It's going to have a very relaxed and casual vibe.

    The bottom cuff will be a ribbed wool cuff, like on the sleeve of a sweatshirt. You see these kind of pants on the market, and quite a few guys have asked for something like it - and I personally own a similar pair that I really dig. The main differential in with our product will be:

    1) Rivet chino fit that everyone knows and loves
    2) Really freaking awesome fabric and better quality construction. Great wash effects to make it very soft and comfortable
    3) A seam on the bottom that will allow the inseam to be tailored. This is pretty huge, as most of the time you're stuck with these styles. We're going to build in a way for a tailor to easily take the inseam up and re-attach the original cuff.

    Imagined in the context of our EPLA collection, you'd get these in khaki and pair it with our upcoming washed white chambray shirt, indigo denim jacket, and sport trainers. Good to go.


    Excellent - glad to hear that you're pleased with them! I love that leather.


    Absolutely, we can easily do that for you. We'll have our Trouser MTO program up in the next few weeks and that's going to be an option.


    Yes, the Topcoat is sized to work over a suit in your usual size.

    RLBL is REALLY slim. The Weller is slimmer than anything off the rack at Brooks Brothers, but not as slim as RLBL. I imagine that you'd need to size down for the same fit, but you'd want to match up measurements on that. Matt can help you find your correct size too if you want to email him at matt[at]epauletnewyork.com

    We've made navy patch pocket jackets in the past, but we don't have anything available at the moment. But we can easily order that as an MTO piece for you.


    Sure thing. MTO on Chessboard would be $795. Lead time 4-6 weeks. We're running pretty low on that fabric, so you might want to do that sooner than later if you're really interested in it.


    Absolutely. The "old" Epaulet collar is buried.

    Our Epaulet x Gitman collar is not exactly like the "new" one, but it's very, very similar. You'll be able to opt for that or for a lower profile buttondown called the "JOE BD." That's what we used on our Ashland shirts.


    Haha, my apologies for that! We never sold 28's very well, so they used to make up the majority of the sale section.


    Oh, drop us an email with your info - we'll issue an online credit for the difference. No worries at all.



    We'll get a Rivet Chino restock shortly - hopefully within the next 2-3 weeks. Same thing with basic Walt trousers as well.

    This has been the largest sale of Fall-Winter stuff that we've done, and it's mostly due to my over-buying of things like tweed and medium weight jackets. Before we moved to LA and opened here, I did a large analysis of our online customers, and it's cool - many guys like StanVan and Oisin were ordering things like sportcoats and heavier wool trousers. Boots too. Lots of shell cordovan.

    Well, I quickly learned that our online customers make up mostly everyone in Southern California who is interested in this kind of stuff. Which is fine - we're developing all sorts of EPLA goods that are better suited for local tastes. But it meant that my stock got totally skewed. Rivet Chinos sold out in most basic fabrics (they're the best selling thing in the SM store), but we ended up with a lot of extra tweed and F/W speciality goods. So we've got a gonzo sale on one hand and zilch in stock for some very necessary basics. But no worries - I'll get everything in line shortly!!

    Such an honest and clear answer. That type of transparency is rare and so appreciated. Yet another reason I love to support Epaulet

    Anyone have that chambray LBM jacket and want to comment on it? Very tempted. But also tempted to see what's coming in Samuelsohn for s/s. Fit in the Samuelsohn is really impressive to me.

    Oh and @PorterInjax can't argue with you. Definitely a no brainer to pick up a piece like that with pretty much your choice of size.

    Really digging the Rivets in Plum Duck, but not sure how the Rivets would fit me. I remember that Dylan recommended me to stick with Walt/Rudy as it was a better fit for me.

    Any chance of a crossover with that one? I prefer the ducks over the Bordeaux Twill due to it being more casual.

    As a SoCal resident I love to drool over all the heavywieght tweeds and flannels you guys put out in the fall, but I know I'd never get a chance to wear that stuff if I bought it.
