    Yup, we've got all three of them here! We'll be open Saturday from 11 to 7PM. We're closed on Sundays for at least the next few weeks (still working out the best hours to be open here). Hope to see you then!


    Thanks for coming by and glad that you dig them!


    You can add me to this chorus too - I'm definitely picking up the POW's in Rudy.

    Good news for Rudy guys: we're going to eliminate the whole massive-order-all-at-once thing. Rather than doing a defined week of preorders, we're going to build out an online MTO item just like the ones that we have for the Rivet Chino. We should have that going in a few days, and we'll be able to take Rudy orders at all times, and we'll layer in all of the new fabrics for it.

    Oh yes, sorry that I missed it. We're definitely working on the MTO shirts again - hopefully we can kick that off again soon! Some MTO stuff that I can promise in the next week: our Fall MTO Southwick assortment (complete with 2- and 3-piece suiting options and a ton of Harris Tweed) and some great new additions to our MTO Rivet Chino fabrics.

    Would that mean there is going to be an MTO upcharge for Rudys similar to the one on the MTO Rivets?

    I hope not but to be honest as long as it was only a slight up charge then it would be okay with me. Just having the ability get pants cut that fit good works for me. Epaulet would probably do just as well financially if they didn't even offer the Rudy fit.

    It sounds like you wear the same sizes as I do. For shirts, EP medium is a bit tight on me while large range from perfect to slightly loose. For Southwick sportcoats, I've been wearing 40 without any alterations, but I suspect my optimal size might be 39 (have an FF sportcoat on order at 39). Given this, I have a snorkel parka at size 38 and I think it's a great fit. It's not loose yet can accommodate a sweather underneath. I don't think 36 would have worked for me.

    Thanks, guys! I love that cardigan—warm enough to wear without a jacket in the snow, obviously. It's from 2011 or so.

    The Navy Yard is an amazing place. My wife has been working on getting it listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

    A slight upcharge is fine, but if we're moving in to the $40 to $50 range it's a 25-30% price increase just because we want something that fits better and no other customisations.

    On another note. Took my Walts to ta tailor today and asked if he could let out the seat/thighs a little bit, but he saidhe couldn't do more than 0.4". Is he right or should I look for another tailor?

    Guys... If you getting custom sizes, or something outside of the norm, expect custom prices..... Or pay your tailor to do it. Don't blame epaulet for it.

    Hero status!!! You are awesome. From someone who struggles to find pants that fit well, I am grateful, thank-you very much. Out of curiosity, will the navy windowpane flannels be part of the Rudy options?

    This was my first question too, actually. Love the fact that they'll be constantly available though.

    Just to clarify, the Rudy in standard waist sizes is not a true "custom" piece the way I understand it. It is a standard cut that Epaulet offered for years at the same price as equivalent Walt trousers. Rivet MTO and suiting MTO I can understand the upcharge, because you are customizing a pattern and making changes to meet your needs and specifications. I think the concern here is people will be charged more for something that used to be a standard price, which actually hasn't been confirmed or denied yet anyway. I will wait for Mike to weigh in with prices for te Rudy order.

    Pretty sure it's going to be more expensive, but you'll be able to customize some things, like length, which will offset some of the upcharge, because I'm sure almost everyone takes their trousers to be hemmed.

    It really depends if they're going to offer the Rudy as an MTO, with lots of options to change things, or if they are going to keep it simple and set it up basically as if you were ordering a Walt off the website, only in the Rudy cut. I would definitely prefer the latter.

    ^ he said it would be just like the rivet chino MTO, so i'm guessing the former

    Nope, the Rudy special orders will be at the usual price. We only pass along an MTO upcharge when we're given one by the factory. With Rudy's, we're able to make them as one-off's for the same price. But that said, there's also not a customization option: the trousers will just come in their usual shape, with a 38" unfinished inseam. We can cut anything from a 28 to a 40 waist.

    And thanks mikeharo! The Windowpane flannels will definitely be in there! Our plan is to build out two Rudy Items (one wool, one cotton), and to eventually have every pant with additional available fabric listed in there. So you'll be able to order our season-to-season basics (medium grey super 120s, olive canvas, navy hopsack, etc) as well. We'll start working on that this week, and we'll try to have at least the new Fall fabrics online by the weekend.


    Yup, I would agree with this and recommend the Snorkel 38. Should be a spot-on fit with a thick sweater underneath.


    Thanks for posting the shots - they look fantastic!
