    I'm curious to know who here has the most Epaulet stuff? NYR?

    Sometimes I wish Epaulet was local to me so I can walk in to try stuff. My wallet would probably be very light afterward though.

    I bought my first chinos about 2 months ago. At the moment, I'm at 5 pairs of chinos and 3 pairs of trousers. :embar: The bug is in full effect indeed.

    Thanks, guys. The real credit goes to Mike & Co. for sourcing such cool fabrics.


    This is just awesome. Great use of monochrome, IMO. Bonus points for the Mini Me inclusion.

    I would stay away from ANY blue in the top half wearing these pants, for fear of becoming a blueberry, though this doesn't look all that bad.


    I have a bunch, but not as much as you'd think...I just wear it all the time. 3 pair of Walts, 1 Rudy, 8 rivets, 1 sweater (trying to sell it btw or swap for a larger size, I bought it too small), and 3 shirts (two of those on the way).

    That's 42 items in total. Also bought a couple other pieces from Epaulet that weren't made exclusively for them. I'm sure there are others out there who have me beat...

    Like this guy. ^^^

    Hmmm... this made me go rummage through my closet.

    14 shirts (would be several more if my size didn't sell out quickly in the koi, strawberry thief, etc.)
    2 sport Coats/blazers
    1 three piece suit
    10 pair pants/trousers
    2 pair jeans
    4 sweaters/cardigans
    1 CPO jacket
    5 pair shoes

    I was thinking recently that I could only wear items bought from Epaulet and have a pretty complete wardrobe.

    Wow, was thinking that what you guys have is a balls-crazy a lot, but then I looked in my closet...

    3x chinos
    2x trousers
    1x suit jacket
    5x shirts

    And that's just in ~1 year...

    ...I can easily see that double in another year...so I guess these amounts aren't really farfetched.

    I just counted 19 Walts, 5 Rivets, and 3 pairs of boots. Not going to do a shirt count but it's up there. Yikes.

    hey if you need a co-conspirator on this these are my fits as well.

    I thought I had a good pile of epaulet kit but some of you fellows in this thread have me lapped a few times!

    Good call! We've actually got this on track for the Fall. A while back, we did a Rivet Chino in a Japanese cotton herringbone. It came in a dark charcoal color and it definitely served to dress up the shape significantly. A few of you guys out there might own them. We're going to run some additional fabrics like that in the Fall. That's probably as dressy as it will get, as I'm going to stick with cotton, machine-washable fabrics for the chinos.

    The Walts, however, are a different story. I've been a busy man with buying Fall fabrics - including quite a few exclusives. We'll have a ton of great stuff, but I'm especially excited about a dark grape-toned Shetland tweed. Oh my god. It's a marled fabric that's freaking unbelievable. Not too purple - it's just the right amount. Pretty sure we're going to run Weller jackets in that for a 2-piece suit

    You bet. Our Spring jackets should be here in the next two weeks or so. Outside of the Caine blazer which we're more or less stocking, we'll get:

    Loro Piana tonal glen plaid windowpane
    Grass Green corduroy (with white MOP buttons)
    Grape Double-Faced cotton-linen (grape on the outside, striped on the inside)

    We'll also introduce a new jacket called the "Marcello." Part of my Pitti mission was to source a true unstructured Neopolitan jacket. This is going to be the real deal. Hand tailored, phenomenal fit, "spalla camicia" shoulder, and the whole nine. Made in a tiny workshop in Naples. We're running it in three lightweight Zegna fabrics. That should be here around the end of March, first week of April.


    I'd give you four guidlines for it:
    1. Only use distilled water. This is really crucial. Using tap or spring water will jam it up with use.
    2. Move the wand slowly and steadily.
    3. Always hold the wand flat against the garment, and at a 90-degree to the floor. If the wand gets angled down (45 degrees to the floor or so) then water will seep out of it and onto your clothes.
    4. On very wrinkled garments, you may have to put the wand inside and steam from the interior too.

    Outside of that, you can check out this hilarious online instruction guide. It's not the best online guide, but it has a great dose of mid 90's web design. From the dated photos, to tiny images that don't enlarge, to "NEXT PAGE" links that just appear after the text, it's a trip down memory lane! The tips are decent though.

    I love this fit! That club collar oxford is still going strong too! Man, that's like from Spring '10 right?

    Awesome! Those shoes look great on you. And I can speak for the entire Epaulet staff when I say that we're all sweating your sportcoat.

    The units for the next delivery are mostly reserved, but we'll get a 7oz French Blue cloth around the end of March. And the 10oz Duck Canvas French Blue should get restocked around late May or so.


    This. Is. Fantastic. Thanks for doing the holiday pants so much justice!

    It should be pretty inexpensive to do. It's really just sewing buttons behind your belt loops. You could probably do it yourself too. Just google brace buttons, I'm sure that there's some info online about it.

    Oh I got a little something up my sleeve. How about a multicolored windowpane linen?

    I think this is a great fit! It's really cool that you illustrated how the French Blue's could be worn with a blue-toned patterned shirt. Normally this would be too matched up, but the shirt has enough of a neutral ground that it looks great. And it's really freaking cute to be matched up with your kid. When I have a child someday, I'll need to buy something like 20 miniature Fred Perry polos for them to wear.
