    Comparing competing/level brands - JCrew, Uniqlo, Banana Republic - Club Monaco's merino V neck fits me best. A note that Uniqlo's does definitely seem to be cheaper material (as to be expected) and the tightest fit. As a note, the one I have from a years go, while it fits great and was great value has pilled a ton without that much wear

    Has/did everyone try the selvedge chinos? I was tempted to nab a pair with the voucher code but waited too long. I know Unbranded/N&F (the latter out of my price range) also makes these kind of things but while I am working on a pair of N&F Weird Guys I would prefer to be able to wash my chinos without really worrying about them. Any thoughts/alternatives?

    Selvedge chinos from my haul. Field jacket is going back. The collar is not the same as the one on the website and it fits big.

    I was looking at their peccary gloves - retailed for $250, and then dropped to about $190, and with the extra 30% off it was coming up to about $132. I decided against the purchase eventually though, because Epaulet's new site sale caused a lot of unplanned purchases.

    The glove was very very soft though.

    I have had good experience with their shipping turn around time.

    Best way to get an answer is to give them a call.

    I placed on order last Sunday (25th) and it just shipped out this past Sunday. They must be a little backed up.

    Fit pic of sweatshirt from earlier this year. Not sure if this is the same as the Archer sweater they have now and I know when I bought this there were two models of it. Not sure what the name of this one is either:

    5'5", 153ish lbs, 38 chest
    Sweatshirt: Size small

    Someone said the selvedge chinos shrink a bit in the wash? Feel bad washing selvedge stuff right away, but did it stretch out agian? The size 33 fits a bit big in the seat but they look nice. Surprised bc I usually fill stuff in the seat like crazy.

    I've got the same one, I am pretty sure it's the archer, the other one didn't have the v-notch and had raglan sleeves I think.

    I bought the blue overdyed looking one, the Samson, thinking it would fit similar.... not even close, way bigger. not the worst fit, but still way bigger than the Archer

    You aren't suppose to wash it, it says dry clean only, but I just did anywas. Didn't really stretch out. They felt half a size too big for me. Now they fit perfect. I did cold wash and low heat drying. I like the pants. I think i will grab the blue ones when they mark down further

    So I was trying out the Grant and Wright blazer over the weekend. I found the fit to be great except for the length which was too short. Other than the button stance, the two were very similar as they were slim, and the length approximately the same.

    Would a short length blazer work for Friday/Weekend night casual outings?
