    Look back a couples of pages. I think Mike posted some info about re-stocks.

    I think you said you were going to get some Mark II watches in but I don't see them on your website. Are you still waiting for them or are they going to be in-store only?

    Thanks!

    I posted one a couple pages back. It's just upper body but you can get an idea of how it fits.
    honestly tkjtg, it doesn't look good on you. it might be your pose, but the cardigan looks really short and wide in the photo you posted.

    I agree that it looks short on him. It might not look so wide if it were longer though.

    I picked up a black Vanson Triton jacket last night at the Orchard store, and it is awesome. Very, very nice piece. I am looking forward to returning for more of the amazing clothes that are on offer.

    It was great to speak with Adele and Mike, the proprietors. These folks have a great passion for what they're doing, and it sounds like there is plenty more coming our way. I wish I could buy one of each item in this store!

    Keep it up, and best of luck.
    Thanks for the Warsteiner!


    I am interested in the Triton jacket in Olive. What size do you typically wear and what did you buy?

    I'm 6'0 165lb and I'm stuck between a medium/large based on their sizing (especially sleeve length and overall coat length)

    I agree that the coat looks great. Haven't been able to find a good wax cotton coat here in Toronto!

    This is what I'm worried about. [​IMG] I'm picking mine up tomorrow, and I ordered a Small since Mike recommended it, despite the fact that I'm 6'0. If it's too short y'all can expect a 36 Blackwatch on B&S tomorrow night.

    I know, my apologies. We had the Vantage and the Seafighter, but the Vantage sold out before I could get them online. We'll restock around late November, and add in a special make-up of the MilSub too.

    Guys, I'm pretty sure that it's just the perspective. He's shooting from above with a cell phone - you don't even see his waist.

    I took the photo below myself. Damon is 6' 2" and wearing a 38. He's definitely a tall, thin dude. The sweater wasn't pulled or pinned in the back. This is how it fit him straight out of the box:

    [​IMG]

    I'll be happy to shoot some fit pics of myself and our other employee on Tuesday so you can see how it fits a range of guys (Darren is thin, me - not so much). When I made the pattern, I definitely kept it on the shorter side. But thick handknits like this can stretch, and it's entirely possible to get an extra inch of length in both the sleeves and the body if you need it. But in Damon's case (guy pictured above), it wasn't actually necessary. We've sold dozens of these in the store, so I've personally seen it fit a range of guys very well.

    I'd be pretty sure that you're a Medium. I'm 5'10" and 195, and wearing a Medium in the fit pic. I've got heavier legs than most guys, but I can't see you wearing the Large in any way. I think that the Medium will give you a good fit body and still leave some room for layering. Sleeve length should be fine. The body length is a bit of a personal preference, but it will definitely be long enough to not look too short.

    This is what I'm worried about. [​IMG] I'm picking mine up tomorrow, and I ordered a Small since Mike recommended it, despite the fact that I'm 6'0. If it's too short y'all can expect a 36 Blackwatch on B&S tomorrow night.

    I think that you're going to dig it - please drop me a PM after you get it and let me know what you think!

    Oh shit I think my crappy cell phone pic at a funny angle with the bottom bunched up is costing you guys money. [​IMG]

    Well, I certainly hope I'm not contributing to this negativity. I own over twenty pieces from Epaulet, and each one is in regular rotation because of its fit and fabric. It very well may be the camera angle that's causing the cardi in that fit pic to look short. Looking back at Damon's picture, I can't see how I could go wrong. The only reason I haven't picked up one for myself sight unseen is because I lack the funds. Otherwise, the charcoal would be in my possession right now and you'd see some straight-on fit pics right here.

    I think I owe it to epaulet to do a do-over fit pic tomorrow. [​IMG]

    That purple/green Gitman plaid is great, may have to pull the trigger. Any more Gitman collabs planned for the fall?

    +1 I will buy a pair of these the second they come out.

    Also: Scarves?

    Not at the moment, but I've got a few units coming in the next 3 weeks or so. Drop me a PM if you want to reserve one. We'll have 36's in the other two colors too.

    Hah, we'd love to see it!

    Hey Mike, any news on those overdyed black Smiths?

    I wish that I had good news, but they got totally pushed out for Rivet Chino production. However, I'm getting a ridiculous amount of chinos within the next few weeks, so the Smiths will likely arrive around the first week of December.

    That purple/green Gitman plaid is great, may have to pull the trigger. Any more Gitman collabs planned for the fall?

    Yup, I can't release any details just yet, but they'll be quite a bit coming later this season.

    But the Loden/Ultraviolet plaid is pretty stunning, and we made up the last of that fabric. The shirts coming down the road don't look anything like it.

    +1 I will buy a pair of these the second they come out.

    Also: Scarves?


    Shot the scarves last week - we should get them online this week. They're bangin'!

    I got my hands on a house-line shirt a couple weeks ago. I like it and the fit so much that I sold off all of my Steven Alan sport shirts (to pay for more epaulet shirts). That's like 3/4ths of my shirts. It immediately dethroned everything in my closet to become my favorite shirt. I'd wear it every other day if it was sanitary.
