    OK here's a noob-ish question - what sort of footwear are you guys rocking with the OD chinos? I'd like to wear these to the office and the color is throwing me a bit; this is the first pair of pants I've owned that's not some variation of navy, gray, or khaki.

    They look great with a pair of beeswax DBs.

    Mike-
    Can you give us a run-down of whats to come in the next few weeks?


    Sure. At the moment, we're planning:

    Gitman Vintage Overdyed Oxfords (Navy & Purple)
    Epaulet Lawn Shirts in Gingham (Purple & Grey) and Multi-tone Glen Plaid

    Adele and I are taking our August vacation next week, so the store will be closed from August 11th through the 18th. Puerto Rico yo!

    Once we get back, the gloves are coming off and we'll have new products dropping weekly.

    That's a great combo. Most boots and shoes with a brown tone - suede or leather - will look great with these trousers. I also like these with white sneakers - as they pick up the white side taping. And black boots and shoes work great too - after all, that's what this mil-spec fabric is usually matched to.

    Definitely an XS. Most Gitman Vintage pieces run a full size larger than ours. I'd actually say that an XS in a Gitman Vintage oxford would be too big on you. Their seasonal fabrics (madras, poplin, flannel) tend to make up smaller, so one of those could work very well.

    Wow, really? I'm an XS in Gitman and they're a nice fit on me. I figured everything else would be too big (besides BoO). Maybe I'll pick up a shirt or two now that I know this.

    Actually those chinos are gorgeous too. Any possibility of doing a run of size 27s in the future? If not a belt would probably work just as well.

    Good stuff.

    Do all the Gitman shirts you all are getting in for fall have button down collars or do you have any with the short, non-button-down collar?

    They'll be after we get back - I anticipate receiving them around the 23rd. The Gitman shirts might happen before, but we're still waiting on them to ship us.

    Oh cool! Yes, our shirts will definitely work for you in either XS or S. And we're not setup to do 27's in our chinos, but I have had several customers buy 28's and be happy with the fit. It's pretty close to the body, so a belt works great.

    Do all the Gitman shirts you all are getting in for fall have button down collars or do you have any with the short, non-button-down collar?

    We've got one model - Blue Chambray - coming with a point collar. Several of the will have club collars too.

    Hey everyone,

    We're back with what has become a seasonal tradition - the Epaulet x Styleforum collaborative shirt poll! We search out some insane fabrics, you guys vote on your favorite colors/patterns, and we make up the most popular choices.

    For this edition, we've got two brand new Japanese fabrics - a "Tea-Washed" variant of last season's popular Doublefaced cloth, and an absolutely insane printed Pima Cotton corduroy.

    I'm really impressed with these fabrics, and I'm sure that they're going to make up into beautiful shirts. Be sure to visit the threads and vote!

    I have a Gitman Vintage cotton madras shirt from this season that fits well in size S. How will the sizing of these new shirts compare? Should I go with a S?

    I've seen this...it's really nice. Might be my first Gitman shirt.

    Hoping to carry the Fred Perry x Liberty of London line too, but I'm just waiting on availability.

    Any news on this? I was going thru my wishlist today and noticed I had the white and black FPxLiberty polos on there.

    YES! Actually they're the only Liberty pieces that I picked up. We should get them in September.

    We'll also get a small run of the brick red Made in UK Fred Perry Harrington. Thing is mod as hell.

    [​IMG] Do they fit like the MiE polos? I noticed on fredperry.com that they're sized 36, 38, 40, etc.

    question regarding the fit of my "rudy" trousers: i really dig the fit, but i get some wrinkling along the thigh while seated. does this mean i would be best suited for the "walt" ones? i don't think i have above-average sized thighs, but i'm not quite sure what the wrinkling while seated means. thanks for your help.

    I believe that they're made in Portugal, which means they'll be comparable to the MIE, but a bit slimmer at the bottom. I'll let you know once I get it confirmed. They're bad ass.

    Hmmm, that's tough to say. It would depend on what fabric you're wearing. PM me your details and a quick fit pic of you standing in them if you can.

    And here you go: [​IMG] You can see the ever-so-slightest bit of cream herringbone twill on the outside of the left-leg cuff in this pic. I love that detail.

    My t-shirt is tucked in too, which SF seems to abhor, but you get a better idea of the fit. Incandescent lighting, unfortunately, but as you can see, they're quite slim-fitting, which is just my speed. These chinos are just unreal. I've stopped looking elsewhere; I just wait to see what Epaulet comes up with.
