    can you add neck sizes as well? I have a big neck/big shoulders (fuck you genetics) so it always makes shirts a gamble

    Thanks Epaulet; they aren't raw or anything so they won't shrink, but the waist will expand a bit right? In that case can I grab the measurements of the 34 also?

    I'm happy to extend a 14-day refund policy for all Styleforum customers. So please feel free to give one of our shirts - or anything else - a try. If you don't love it, then you can return it unworn for a full refund.

    Hey there, Those are the measurements for the 34 - it actually comes in as a 36 in real measurements. The jeans are raw and sanforized, so they won't shrink with washing. They'll expand a little bit with wear, but I find that they expand a lot less than APC's and Nudies. The fit on these is tapered, but not super-slim. I often sell them to guys looking for a narrow leg opening - to wear with slim sneakers or shoes - but can't pull off really tight jeans. I've got relatively big legs, so if I put on a true slim jean, I end up looking like Jennifer Lopez. Believe me, it's not good. But these work for me, and I wear them every week. For really thin guys, they'll fit a bit loose. Thanks, Mike

    Thanks mate; My actual measured waist is a 36 so I'm a tad nervous bout buying them and having the waist stretch out... usually prefer to go without a belt and think maybe they could end up being too big [​IMG] Was looking for a jean with a looser top block to a narrow leg opening, might have to think about it... got a fit picture on you?

    P.S Anyone know how possible it is to get a tailor to bring in the waist of your jeans?

    Unfortunately not. This no-pocket slim shape is part of our signature. However, down the line we're working on some more casual shirts with buttoned chest pockets.

    Still working on the shirt poll, but in the meantime I've got some amazing bags to show you. WM J. Mills & Co produces these canvas totes and flight bags on the North Fork of Long Island. They are unbelievably rugged and person and will make a perfect Spring to early Fall bag. They're tough as hell, so you'll be using them every Spring to early Fall for the next 20 years. We offer free US shipping for any order over $50, so all of these will ship at no charge. We caught a nice writeup on these today on Men.Style.Com. [​IMG] Black Flight Bag: $100 [​IMG] Grey Flight Bag: $100 [​IMG] Navy Flight Bag: $100 [​IMG] Hunter Green Tote Bag: $85 [​IMG] Red Tote Bag: $85 We've got more colors and sizes in the tote bags as well.

    Our existing shirts have plastic buttons - either tortoise or pearlized white. For the style forum shirts, everyone will get to vote on either natural shell buttons or plastic tortoise.

    ooh, nice. will the SF x epaulet shirts have pockets? chest pockets with flaps remind me of j. press. also, are any of your shirts going to fit slim (and be long enough) on me if I'm 6'1", with a 35-36" chest. BoO smalls are comically short on me.

    No, these will have no pockets.

    Our shirts are definitely cut longer than BoO. I have quite a few regular customers in the over 6' range. I think that our Small will work fine for you. It's not going to be skin-tight, but it will look slim and tailored.

    Hey everyone,

    I want to introduce our neckwear collection to the forum. Our standard ties and bowties are handmade in New York City of either Italian silk or US cotton. The knit ties are made in Italy. They measure 2.5" at their widest point, so they're slim without being "skinny." The bowties measure 1 5/8" at their widest point and they are square-ended.

    If you're familiar with Thom Browne or Band of Outsiders ties, then these are made in the same place. It's a small world here in NYC!

    The ties that are above $50 will ship for free in the USA anyway. If any SF forum members want to buy a tie that's priced under $50, then I can can offer you free US shipping on those too. Just PM me.

    The shirts look great, one comment though: a collar size of 15.5 seems rather large for a small to me. Wouldn't it make more sense to have a small be 15", medium 15.5", large 16", etc.? It seems I'm a solid medium in your sizing everywhere except the collar...I'd probably be able to fit 4 or 5 fingers in there with it buttoned up!!

    +1. I was really looking forward to the seersucker and chambray shirts, but if the neck size is 15.5 on a small, then they aren't going to work for me (I need 14 or 14.5)

    Would you mind noting the length of the ties?

    I've been interested in one of those Mills bags for a while now. The free shipping offer is really tempting.

    Hey everyone, Thanks so much for the sizing feedback. Ultimately, I tried to make the shirts fit a range of bodies, and that required erring on the side of long for the sleeves and large for the collars. Although with these more casual seersucker and chambray shirts, this might be less of an issue as they're begging to be worn with an open collar. But I hear you. I met with my patternmaker today, and we're going to develop a custom XS size. This will have a 14.5-15 neck, shorter sleeves, and a slightly trimmer body.

    I also don't really understand the sizing. I am a 15.5 neck but I have a hard time believing that I could fit into a small for the rest of the shirt. I am a medium in jcrew, and a bb2 in black fleece. Would a small be big enough in the body and shoulders for someone 6'2" 170?
