    No perfect match, but a great option to have. Will head over there when back in NYC.

    Got my Epaulet x Carmina Cooper suede chukkhas and am wearing them around. The site recommends sizing down one and a half sizes from UK, but I played it safe and sized down just one size since my left foot is a little bigger than my right. These are some of the most comfortable shoes I've had, for my left foot as well. I was a little worried about slip at first, but they seem to fit really well. I think if I had gone down another half size my toes might not all fit on the sole. I've heard that these hand sewn ones stretch, though, is there a danger that the shoes might stretch from a good fit to too loose of a fit? If so, is there a way to prevent this?

    Can you describe the ripstop fabric?

    Here is Mike's description. Far more eloquent than I could be.

    The airy feel of these chinos belies how truly tough they are. Woven in the USA, the 100% cotton fabric will deliver years of solid wear. It's vitality is ensured by the graph-paper pattern of reinforced stitches that run throughout the fabric. This ripstop construction, as it's called, safeguards the fabric from tearing wildly by having a series of intersecting heavy-duty double stitches. Although these are easily worn casually because of this feature, we really like them paired with classic trad pieces like button-down oxfords, long wings, and navy blazers.

    I would add that they are super light weight and breathable but a tough material with a cool subtle pattern.

    @Epaulet - Is it possible to order the MTO duck canvas chinos in the Rudy fit? I like my Rivet Chinos but would love something with a higher rise and a bit more space in my thighs.

    About to grab a pair in desert camo. My second purchase based on your rec. Still not sure on all the diff Epaulet pant fits (Wilshire, Rudy, Driggs, Walt, Rivet).

    Also, curious if the midknight silk knit tie can be worn interchangeably with the navy wool knit tie. I like the darker navy, but curious if it's worth it to go for the silk. Wonder which looks sharper. If anyone can chime in, I'd appreciate it.

    To be the best of my knowledge...

    Wilshire = Jeans (cut is similar to Rivet)
    Rivet = lowest rise and pretty straight at the leg (most casual cut)
    Walt = higher rise than Rivet with a bit more slim leg
    Rudy = Walt rise with wider thighs
    Driggs = new cut that was just released within the last few months. I believe the rise is similar to the Rivet but has a much more slim/tapered leg.

    Aren't the Driggs supposed to have a higher rise than the rivets?

    Driggs rise increases as waist size increases

    ^this is incorrect. Driggs has a static 11'' rise

    Driggs is somewhere in between the Walt and Rivet rise....I don't notice a huge difference between the Walt and Driggs rise...

    You are probably correct. I was going off the top of my head and just know that the rise is not as high as the Walts. Driggs is the only cut I don't own yet so I am not as familiar. That being said I plan to own a fair deal of Driggs moving forward considering I taper all my current EP pants.

    Oh right, I think that's what I am forgetting. I think for some smaller sizes the rivet and the driggs rise are the same but as your size in driggs goes up, the rise increases making them closer to the Walt rise. Does that sound right?

    My mistake. I confused the Driggs rise with the Rivets rise. Driggs/Rudy/Walt are all static rise wise, Rivet increases with waist size. But yea, Driggs is 1.5'' lower than Walt.

    Hey guys!

    Sorry for being missing in action over the past few days. We've been hashing out the new website and putting the finishing touches on all the merchandise drops in July.

    I come bearing photos! First off, we visited Gitman Brothers a few weeks back to say hello and work on some new production items for Fall. Here's some development shots

    We'll have two new collars - a banded collar (like "Her") and a hidden buttondown:

    Next up, is our new shape for Fall - the simulated popover. It's actually a full-button placket.

    [​IMG]

    And... may I present a glass-button Western shape:

    [​IMG]

    We'll do some OTR pieces with these features, but the rad thing is that all of this will be available for MTO. We'll have both the existing Gitman fabrics and a selection of our own piece goods - mostly flannels and Japanese streaky chambrays. They'll be a lot of opportunities to play with this.

    And, that evening we had the pleasure of meeting bkotsko and his wife for dinner. They were game for indulging our mild obsession with Red Lobster and their "Cheddar Bay" biscuits.

    Looking good, Mike! Certainly can see some very cool MTO's

    Any chance we can get the rip stop Driggs off the ground? Would be great to receive before end of summer

    ^^I'm going to be a condescending a** and wonder aloud what the Red Lobster patron thinks of #epauletstyle.
