    Hey everyone,

    This is the official poll for the Epaulet Winter 2013 Fit Contest. We called on our customers to post their best fits and feature at least one item purchased from Epaulet in the F/W '13 season.

    We chose one fit for each person who submitted and posted them out below in alphabetical order. Please scroll through the list and vote for your favorite looks. You can vote for as many as you like.

    This poll will close on Thursday, 2/13. The winner - chosen by the Styleforum community as a whole - will receive his choice of VASS footwear from our on-hand stock! Those boss shoes will be shipped out to him pronto.

    Following the poll closing, we'll hold a random drawing in which each contest participant will get an equal chance for the second prize. The second prize will be the winner's choice of either a cashmere scarf (valued at $175 - $200) or an EPLA denim jacket (arriving in about 4 weeks, valued at $165 - $195).

    Thanks to everyone who participated and submitted photos. And thanks to you guys for browing through the images and casting your votes. We really enjoyed this project, and It was inspirational to see all of the looks that you guys put together.

    I voted for everyone, cause it takes balls to post a fit pic on the internet, and it was nice to see a lot of different guys doing it! EP FTW.

    Looking good - we've got a lot of votes in! We're thrilled with the quality of these submissions.

    Here's my personal notes for each shot:

    altmana: Running the boat with a single hand. Like a Boss.

    beatlegeuse: Tooled Leather belt and Brixton's are aging nicely!

    braidkid: Safe to say that we'll all envious of this excellent suit fit. Among other things.

    DonL: Moleskin vest fits you perfectly. Not that I'd tell you otherwise with this bad-ass pose

    eddiemczee: Cuffs are fantastic with this fit

    El Argentino: Love the navy jacket / grey pant / white shirt / purple tie combo. My groomsmen wore this exact pairing when I got married

    gwhitehead: about the most perfect fit that I could envision for that fabric!

    kidnesiac: Burgundy hopsack jackets are one thing, but burgundy hopsack DB's are next level!

    kwanon: Fantastic fit on the trousers, and I dig the color combo with the shirt

    malwear: Nice casual pairing here - I like the matching of the CPO to the sneakers

    mattp: English country style on the Promenade. Love it!

    Mr Clemson: The jacket fits you perfectly and those Kudu boots are great with the chinos

    nd1nd2nd3: I really like the tweed jacket here. It's more formal than tweed + jeans, but not too serious, and the plaid tie is great

    New York Islander: One of my all-time favorites of yours. Fit is impeccable and the setting is great

    oisin: What can I say? The master storyteller right here!

    Pastor: Very cool! Love the suit and the fall foliage backdrop

    pelatonia: Blouson is very cool and a great match to the chinos. I like how your colors jive with the leaves around you.

    reedCA: Looks really comfortable - the light pants are a fresh match to the sweater. It's a great way to show how they can be worn in the Fall

    spandexter: Super sharp! Everything here is really precise and dialed in. Love the muted color combos

    Stanley Van Buren: This is totally hilarious - we love the cinematic details here! MTO shirt looks great.

    steel28: I dig the bold cutaway collar shirt with the tie. Very milano style

    Todd V: This is a great illustration of how a leather jacket and jeans can be really awesome together without being boring or obvious. There's a great attention to detail on every piece, but it looks like you combined it all effortlessly

    tricky: My favorite of the three shots you submitted - this is perfect fit of the Caramel jacket IMO, and that's not an easy piece to match. Looks very cool

    vedarcrew: This jacket is epic. I really like the overall burgundy tones of the whole fit

    wj4: my man needs no introduction here. The infamous Japanese Camo suit! Looks cool as hell when worn with all of those trad pieces.

    Really digging the variety of cuffs and breaks! But extra props for all those two inch cuffs. Two-inch cuffs & no break is basically the house style around these parts.

    Man, all of you guys submitted some GNARLY entries! Really, I think this is the best contest we've done yet.

    These are my personal favs from the submissions:

    Mr Clemson

    This is such a solid casual fit. Interesting, but on first glance very understated!


    [​IMG]

    Pastor

    This is so good, it hurts! I'm stoked you picked up the DB suit!

    [​IMG]

    pelatonia

    You combined two of my favorite pieces from our F/W season in an ass-kicking way!

    [​IMG]

    tricky

    I really dig the slightly off-kilter take on a classic menswear styled fit! You NAILED it!

    [​IMG]

    And to echo what James said, these contests are great ways to see how we all wear similarly clothing in much, MUCH different ways! It's rad to see the difference in styles and aesthetics within a small community. You guys are awesome!

    every time gwhitehead pulls ahead, el argentino comes roaring back. Something's fishy with how he garners votes.
