    Interested to see how the wide Forest bal boots I ordered are going to fit. It that's my best fit, might order one of the CXL makeups when they restock. Good to know that this sounds like it will be a possibility. Love the Forest shape. This direct Epaulet line to Carmina could turn into a problem. I've exercised restraint so far, but I'm weak.



    Hmmm... also good to know. Was considering buying the 10oz Rivets in plum, but perhaps I will now wait to see what these cords look like.

    And can't wait for these first special order trousers to start coming in.

    Thanks! These sounds great...will pick up at least the moss and probably another pair after the pics come out. Not sure if you're considering more colors of these in the future, but I think a chocolate brown cord would be perfect for fall and I'd be all over that in a hearbeat.

    There's a rip the size of a quarter in the leg of my wine oxford chinos. Anyone have any services or NYC-area tailors/shops they'd recommend that would be able to darn them or otherwise repair them without using a patch? (Tried French American and Alice Zotta in midtown and they both said they wouldn't recommend reweavers.)

    I thought of contacting a denim repair service since oxford cloth and denim are reasonably similar in construction (though obviously not identical), and Denim Therapy said that they could repair but they doubted I'd be happy with the results. Any recommendations?

    Love love love Liberty of London. I've got 2 being made now and have a few more to be made if they turn out as well as I hope.

    My outfits are usually captured in detail in my blog FYI. I didn't post them here because neither the shoes or trousers are from Epaulet.

    To answer your question, they're black shell LWB from Alden.

    Mike,
    Any chance of you doing a Factory Finds with shirting? That would be amazing

    This. Even better if we could customize certain elements as well (collar type, length of arms).

    Yes, Yes, Yes.

    Not that I need any other reasons to throw my money away at EP.

    Collar size customization would be the worst thing that ever happened to my wallet. If I could get a Large Epaulet shirt and shrink the collar an inch, then Epaulet shirts would fit me as well as, if not better than, some of my MTM dress shirts.

    More realistically though, I don't think it would be technically possible to customize shirts in such a way. At least if my idea of how shirts are cut is more or less close to reality [​IMG] Edit: ok, it is possible but it would take a lot of efforts [​IMG]

    ^ agreed, the kind of customization I would need probably wouldn't happen....but the original idea of a bunch of random shirt fabrics being cut into the standard sizes that Epaulet uses for all their shirts seems at least somewhat realistic.

    This. Not saying a MTM but use the basic EP fit as your base framework and offer certain things that you can customize potentially.

    All of that aside, even if it was just fabrics and the basic EP fit, the program would be a smashing success.

    ^ As convenient as customizing fit might be, I think when you change measurements on shirting patterns, you have to basically redesign the entire pattern, which would be incredibly difficult and no doubt expensive -- which is part of the reason why MTM is pricey/outsourcing-prone in the first place.

    I don't view Epaulet like I view MTM outfits. Forum feedback is obviously very important for them, but part of the appeal of Epaulet is that Mike and Adele have designed and curated clothing with certain fabrics and fits.
