    I hope no one objects me to linking to another vendor, but Kirby from the Hanger Project worked with Nick from B. Nelson's Shoes to write a guide about when to resole your shoe that I found very helpful: http://www.hangerproject.com/shoe-care-guide/when-to-replace-soles

    ^ I've seen Nick do the thumb press before. I have a soft spot on a pair of 403s that he said was fine. He said the key thing is if it's spongy/weak; then it needs replacing.

    Congrats to the growing Epaulet nuclear family!

    You know, we all have a duty to buy more Epaulet goodies now. Just tell your wives/girlfriends/partners/accountants/therapists that there are mouths to feed.

    Congrats Mike and Adele! SO happy for you guys...like I've told you before, there is no greater joy in life than being a dad and watching your baby grow!
    It takes balls posting the first fit pic after a baby shot...good for you SvB! Here's mine, and my BRAND NEW EpLA Sweatshirt. I love it. I've basically been living in these jeans and my W&H stuff this winter. Glad to add this to "complete" my uniform...fit is great, better on me than the W&H where I'm a medarge. This is a medium, and spot on. Underneath is the EpauletNY Denim Shirt. Grabbed the Denim Western shirt yesterday, and will be in that tomorrow...also a great addition. Stoked about the LA line, and especially about the West Coast pricing...great stuff! [​IMG]

    and it was a recurring stock item for awhile. I think you can probably still special order it so I would call and inquire.

    Hey guys,

    I have a tailoring question for you. All of my Epaulet sport coats fit well in the shoulders and chest, but I have bunching to varying degrees in the back of the collar on all of them.

    Looks like this: [​IMG]

    Is this really as easy a fix as the description says? Have any of you guys had your tailor "lower the collar"?

    My tailor is above average IMO, but he won't touch it. He says it can't be done.

    Is your tailor in Portland? Which one?

    I have not had this done, but I have had great work from Sylvan at European Master Tailor in Morgan's Alley. He's expensive, but worth it IMO. For stiff like simple hems, or shortening shirts you can get work done for less elsewhere, but his suiting work is top notch.

    Yeah, I actually was going to go to Sylvan to try to have this done. I read great reviews about him--glad to hear you feel the same.

    I've been going to Kim's Tailor shop over in Cedar Hills.

    Find another tailor. This is an easy fix.

    It's a fairly easy fix. The tailor removes the collar, cuts out the excess fabric, and re-attaches the collar. I've had it done on a number of my RTW jackets.
