    Mr Clemson,
    Do you live in SC? If so, it's good to see another "southerner" on the Epaulet bandwagon. I live in Rock Hill.

    Oh, I bet those clemson boys are already having nightmares about Jadaveon Clowney. :happy:

    HUGE THANKS TO EVERYONE!

    Hey guys,

    I'll catch up on responses later on today, and I've got a bunch of pics to show of the new store. Should have some new product online shortly too.

    But Adele and I just wanted to thank everyone who came out to the Santa Monica store opening yesterday. It was fantastic to meet so many customers in person, and we had a great time. There's not too many Summertime Saturdays remaining, so it meant a lot that you chose to spend your time with us. Opening a new store is always a bit of a shaky experience - especially when you do it on the opposite side of the country - but you guys made us feel very welcome and we're thrilled to be here! As always, we're extremely grateful and humbled by your support and good will! We promise to make this the best store that we can!

    And we promise to have fairly-regular meetups that are driven by beer, mexican coca-cola, and organic cheese doodles, and most likely result in sloppy karaoke a few hours later. Just like yesterday!

    The thigh and seat are very proportionate to the overall fit of the trousers. Definitely slimmer than the J Crew Urban Slim (I've owned quite a few pairs of these). And Wis is correct, it's very easy to take in for a slightly competent tailor. If you need specific measurements, feel free to drop me a PM or an email (matt@epauletnewyork.com).

    As for Factory Finds, we put those up every few months. We do trousers, Rivet Chinos and Southwick jackets. Typically we run more FF for trousers than anything else. The next one should be coming up soon, but I'll let Mike handle that one.

    Suede shoes are one of my personal favorites. I wear them year-round and really don't take care of them much, minus some Nano Protector every now and again.

    The Alden chukka and PTB are both excellent shoes. I would say the PTB would be the most versatile of the two, but you can't go wrong with either. I think the blucher lends itself a little better to the "dressy" side of things, but can certainly look great with jeans/chinos and a tee or casual button-down.

    The Carmina snuff Salinger is one of the best selling shoes we've done from them. They're a bit less formal than the Rand single monk, but both are great shoes.

    Sizing on both Carmina shoes is pretty true. I would recommend a UK7/US8. The Alden chukka runs true to size also and the PTB a half size large, so I would recommend a US7.5.

    As for the soles, some of the shoes in the newest delivery are stamped from JR, so that leads me to believe they've been using those soles for quite some time. They really are damn near indestructible.

    And, for good measure, these are my snuff Salinger after a year or so of VERY regular wear:

    I booked in a ton of restocks last night: Luchino polos, a few shirts, a lot of chinos and trousers, the navy cotton LBM jacket and quite a bit of Saphir product.

    I believe Mike is trying to get some stuff online tonight that we didn't receive in NYC.

    Never forget that there are three of us from below the Mason-Dixon on the team! It's always rad when I get to ship close to home, though.

    I never got on here and mentioned it but it was a pleasure meeting you a few weeks back in NY. My wife and I had a great anniversary in NY and one of the highlights was going to the shop there. Besides you, who else is from down south?

    Yes, I live in Greenville. Awesome - I'm actually shocked that someone else from SC (and even the upstate) is on here!

    I can't wait until that guy is gone. He won that game for them last year...take him off that DL, and we win that game. It's as simple as that. I assume you're a gamecock based on that comment and due to living in Rock Hill (where we never get players from).? : )

    Anyhow, I'm so fired up for this Saturday I can hardly sleep! Death Valley will be rocking Saturday night, and we'll be there as always (and will start tailgating early Saturday morning). Go Tigers!

    the walts are consistent with the urban slim in the waist, seat and thigh. not slimmer at all. the walts are much much wider below the knee. j. crew urban slims are about a 7" leg opening. walts are about an 8.5".

    Thanks to everyone for the responses. Really appreciate it! I need to digest this info and make some decisions. I may have some follow up questions too.... Oh, and I need to figure out how to quote multiple posts in one response. ??

    What was it Clowney said after last years game, oh yeah, it was "I don't know what it feels like to lose to Clemson and I never will either". You are right though, he is a big part of the team. USC has stunk for so many years its good that they finally have a competitive team. Rock Hill is pretty big Gamecock territory. In all honesty I don't watch football at all but my family are big time fans and anything I know really comes from talking to them and what I read in the paper.

    Greenville is a cool city and I go there quite a bit. The downtown is gorgeous and there are some good menswear shops in Greenville as well.

    Good talking to you!

    Yeah, I believe that was him. I'd love nothing more than to beat them in Columbia this year and shut him up! Haha. [​IMG]

    Greenville is great. The biggest downside is the lack of selection for menswear as compared to larger cities like Atlanta and Charlotte. The good thing is that both are within 2 hours though. The two mens shops in Greenville that I like are Rush Wilson and Smith & James. Both carry pretty good stuff, but RW aims at a slightly older crowd while S&J aims more at guys around my age (20-40; I'm 31). Let me know the next time you're in Greenville. Tons of good restaurants and things to do.

    BTW, I'm looking at the responses/advice on the suede shoes and, unfortunately, the Salinger double monk isn't available in a US8 - just 8.5. Ugh...I really love those. Back to the drawing board...

    Hey all,

    Had a blast at the opening & after-party yesterday. Was awesome to meet a bunch of people, whose names I will likely mix up or mismatch with different screen names. We made a pretty healthy donation of white dog hair to the shop's floor and had a great time hanging out and watching the Epaulet dogs play with ours. The location is pretty fantastic, one of the nicest parts of Santa Monica, and what seems like just the right amount of space for all the product. There are some pretty awesome things on the way as well; Mike and Adele have some great ideas they are working on.

    Last night turned into one hell of a party with a small but dedicated crew closing the night out at Max Karaoke on Sawtelle. My wife and I are still recovering. Super fun though, what a great time.

    That guy is a BEAST. Glad 'Bama doesn't have to play them this year. SEC is just incredible with the talent and passion.

    My otherwise wonderful dry cleaner pressed my LBM 3-roll-2 navy linen jacket as if it were a true 3-button jacket, erasing most of the jacket's roll. Since the jacket is just linen -- unstructured, and uncanvassed, if I'm not mistaken -- it should be easy to restore the jacket to its original roll, right? Any tips on how to do this with a steamer and/or iron?

    Question to Spiewak owners - how warm is it? I assume you need to layer aggressively if it's freezing cold outside?
