    Sales Tax Will Be Paid For at Santa Monica Launch Event

    Hey guys!

    We've been working on the Montana Ave shop all day today - it's coming along nicely! I'll have some photos to share soon.

    I've received a lot of PM's from local guys who are debating buying things before or after the party due to sales tax. We'll have to start charging Cali sales tax on this Saturday the 24th.

    But for party-goers, don't worry about it. Sales tax will be on me that day, and we'll effectively discount your purchases by 9% so that the final cost to you is the same as it was before. So feel free if you want to wait and pick something up at the event. We'll have lots of new stuff that day including Luchino polos, Epaulet shirts, trousers, and of course those fine Vass Austerity Brogues!

    Mike, what the smallest size you ordered for the Vass Austerity Brogues? I'll probably need a US7.5...

    Any Vass x Epaulet MTO project ideas?

    Boo on the Cali tax, but congrats on the new Santa Monica store! I'm backpacking in the Sierras this weekend, but I'll try to get down to LA at some point to visit.

    It's great. When I originally purchased it, i thought it was only going to be room for my macbook air and a thin notebook but it's a bit more spacious than that. The leather is not too hard and not too soft and the briefcase is not as heavy as something like saddleback's briefcase so that get's a +1 in my eyes. If you're in the market for a briefcase, I'd say go for it. A good quality leather briefcase can easily run you a lot more than the ~300

    Mike--

    Now that you have been introduced to the wonderful world of sporting clays, how about introducing a shooting sport coat. I would love to see the epaulet take on the traditional English shooting coat...the only detail that I would recommend keeping is the bi-swing back... And perhaps a shooting shirt as well...

    Got the Nightshade Walts today as well. Didn't have a chance to try them on yet, but the color/fabric is awesome! I keep wanting to call them Lampshade or Night Ranger ;)

    It's a basic operation for any tailor and works well on Walts. I've done it on a few of mine.

    Agreed 100% (or I guess 108.875%). Hope the opening of the CA store goes well!

    Another voice for the Nightshade Flannel. Incredible trousers, and, with the tweeds, a pretty serious first fall drop for mid-August.

    Will the nightshade be available for the coming rudy order? Hearing so much about it makes me want to get a pair.

    there's a loophole in the epaulet website where you never have to pay sales tax regardless of where you are. whether or not this loop hole is intentional, it works and i'm glad for it, and i'm sure everyone here is smart enough to figure it out.

    Great, Wis. I love my 7oz French Blues, and they're the most adequate for my climate, but every time I see them in duck I have just a pang of jealousy.

    I love those blue ducks. Can I ask what jacket you're wearing? Great combo!
