    Cross post, these donegal latte pants are the shit. Great color IRL, recommended. Oh and thanks for the regram the other day on instagram!

    Love all my Walts but I'll probably have to let go of 2 size 31s rust tweed and pearl flannel that don't fit. Wish there were 32s in stock.

    Can't you let them out and they should fit like the 32?

    Thanks too! I'm so obsessive, at work today, I kept thinking about this shirt and should I just buy a new large and have 2. But I think it might prove too big for a true medium like me.....Being a perfectionist has its burdens.

    Honestly, I'm just worried the pants legs may be too skinny as they sometimes catch my calves and it doesn't fall straight down. Didn't care until someone pointed it out and now I notice. They might still be passable as a more modern cut but it's definitely as narrow as I could go.

    Haha, good find - I guess that it does look cool with an all-white upper and a red sole. IDK we'll see - there's a lot of leathers and possibilites to play with. I just received a sample in a beautiful calfskin scotchgrain. Like the "Emerson" carmina boots that we ran last year, the leather has the typical pebble grain structure of scotchgrain, but it doesn't have that hard top-finish, so the hand is very soft. Just like the regular calfskin that we run. We'll have a nice assortment of sizes and colors in this. And I'll fit-test these shoes, but I've been getting the same results as with the Tennis Trainer. You should be able to confidently size yourself on a Jack Purcell Low.
    Thanks for the feedback. I'm actually pretty open - although what we make would probably be more in the realm of a field jacket. This factory is very talented, but they make high-end mens garments, not really military repro stuff. I think that we can make something very cool, but it wouldn't be a mil-spec piece at all. I'm looking into some lightweight cotton-blend tech fabrics that can make for a good 3-season piece.
    I'd agree with that - most customers will cuff heavier wool trousers (flannel, tweed) while leaving thinner ones with a plain hem. That said, I've seen a lot of guys wear linen pants with cuffs, and it's kind of boss in a very old-school way.
    Agreed - killer watch! I love those Zenith's.
    Great fits!
    Killer! Glad that the shoes found their way to you safely. Thanks again for bearing with us on the crazy-long lead time for those.
    I have to say - the shirt looks pretty cool that way. In the world of "happy accidents," I think that this one is decent!
    You've got seam allowances down each leg too, so it is possible to relax them at the calf too if need be.

    Reigning Champ Heavyweight Sweat Pants

    As promised!!

    And I've been raving about these for a few weeks. If you live somewhere cold and you dig the look of these, then I promise - you will absolutely love them. They're the warmest sweat pants that I've ever seen, and I've worn them down to the mid 20's in temperature.

    The fit is really tapered and a bit directional. For Walt guys, it's going to be very slim at the calf and ever so slightly loose at the top. For Rudy guys, it will still work, but it's going to fit pretty slim all around. Luckily, the fabric is so thick that you can still keep a PG-13 fit in the top block, if you know what I mean.

    I told myself "no more shopping for yourself until January" then I wake up to my routine of checking EP.. and kopped both flannels.

    I am not a strong man.

    Not much, lol. But being in a plant at 3:30 in the morning will wipe you out. Shows what happens when I do...

    Ah sorry - we only received two units of Blue large, and those sold in the shops weeks ago. The grey color is rad too - those are the ones that I grabbed.

    The Heavyweight tiger hoodies are the same exact fabric if you want to hook it up and be all....

    Looks great! Glad that it worked so well for you. Thanks for picking it up.



    Ah, the late, great Fairisle v-neck. I love that sweater!


    Thank you sir! You're going to love them - the fabric is really excellent on these

    Epaulet Running Trainer Sample

    Got another sneaker sample to show you guys! May I introduce the "Running Trainer"

    This will be an all-leather running shoe on an EVA molded sole. Kind of a throwback construction to the old New Balance's. We'll give it the same glove leather liner as the Tennis Trainer. I've tried on the sample and they feel :slayer:

    This sample is made up in a triple mix of "Couro Chromo" leather. Not necessarily a colorway that we're ordering, I was just playing around and wanted to see how things would match up.

    Got a specific question for you guys as well. The "formstripe" is that detail piece behind the mudguard. For the sample, we spec'd out that straight diagonal line, but I'm thinking that it would look better with the stitched and angled formstripe of the GAT (as shown in the mockup on the left). Which one do you prefer?
