    Sure, we can do it on the Rudy trousers. I don't pay a surcharge for those, so it's the same as if we have it in stock. And I know that a lot of potential Vass guys also take the Rudy cut.


    Absolutely, we'll have all of those online before the event.

    I'm going to coordinate all of the phone orders here in Santa Monica, so anyone looking to place an MTO can call me directly on those two days. We'll have all of the info and pricing in place.


    The Single Breasted model is shockingly warm for its weight. It largely comes from the Valtherm lining that sits under the wool. Like Gore-Tex, it breathes and lets moisture out, but also provides excellent insulation when paired with the quilted wool on top. I've personally worn my Veneto DB on early winter days with a substantial sweater underneath. Matt wore his through most of the NY winter last year. It's important to note also that the technical nature of this jacket means that it can also be worn in the early Fall. Wear it without a sweater and you're good around 65F or lower. So you'll have plenty of opportunities to wear it throughout the year.

    The Overcoat is heavier than the SB, but that extra warmth largely comes from the zip-out liner. So that will be excellent on cold winter days, but it can also be worn without the liner on milder ones. Dylan chose that to be his NY winter jacket for this season.


    Thanks! For Wyatt fans we'll have the new black and brown horsehide versions here early next week.



    It depends on your comfort level, but that fabric is very much a standard flannel weight, and it's a very popular F/W fabric for suits. At this point, I estimate that we've made over 50 Oxford Grey suits. This cloth is a bit more luxurious than what we use for the Walt trousers, but it's very close in weight.


    Thank you sir! Glad to hear that you're so pleased with it. I've been wearing my Mulberry almost every night here in SoCal.


    Awesome, the boots look great! Can't wait to see how they age.


    They are finalized and submitted. Good stuff coming through in about 3 weeks

    If you could, would appreciate seeing some fit pics.
    You posted a pic of a Belstaff in a different thread quite some time ago and I thought that jacket was awesome...the name of the jacket escapes me at the moment.

    Yes, yes, the mirror is overly dirty. Cleaning day is tomorrow and we're in the middle of remodeling.

    Given the Vass MTO event and related sale can anyone who follows the Vass thread post some of the all time best/favorite MTO make ups so we can get some ideas of options. Would really help those of us who can"t be there in person. Thanks

    There's an Epaulet x Vass MTO thread on SF that already has a bunch of ideas in it. If people are going to be placing orders next weekend, I'm guessing the choices will already be decided on for group MTOs. Unless you are thinking of doing a single-order MTO. In that case, I'd love to see what kind of crazy makeups some people come up with on the spot.

    I am looking at getting my first sport coat. I am 6'2 and 210lbs and wear a size 42. The consensus seems to be navy, and the fabric seems to be hopsack.

    Which is a better first and only sport coat choice? Caine hopsack or Napoli hopsack.

    I'll let the core SC wearers chime in but I'd say this depends on two main things: 1) Your body type, as the unstructured shoulder of the Napoli may not suit everyone's build 2) Your style/needs--do you/would you wear it for work? Do like the more Euro look/feel of the Napoli? Or the more classic structured shoulder?

    This thread has a lot of great info and posters. I'm sure you'll get great input

    Opps. Computer was dragging all afternoon for reasons unknown. Must not have loaded the photos. That is one heck of a SC.

    Can someone summarize the 15% discount to those of us who didn't receive the newsletter?

    There's an event going on next Friday and Saturday for the Vass MTO launch. If you purchase a pair of Vass MTO footwear, you'll get 15% off any other items bought at the same time (including sale merchandise but excluding other non-Vass MTO goods).

    Sure thing. This Friday and Saturday we're going to hold a Vass MTO event in our Manhattan stores. Any local guys can come in to the store, get fitted, and see both our Fall selection and a range of samples. We'll have a VASS rep on hand to help guide you along. All the details are below.

    The 15% discount works as such. When you place a VASS MTO during those two days, you can add anything else onto the order at 15% off - excluding another Vass or Carmina MTO shoe. Anything else is fair game, and there's no limit. So if you were thinking of both a Vass MTO and a bigger ticket Epaulet purchase, then this is a great chance to save some dough!

    Guys at the Manhattan store will work with our team there. For anyone elsewhere, I'll post swatches and photos online, and I'll personally be on hand to take your order over the phone.

    ***************************************************************

    VASS Made to Order Event

    Handmade in Budapest, VASS creates some of the finest shoes available anywhere. Epaulet is one of a select handful of stockists in the United States, and we're thrilled to announce our very first Made to Order event with them.

    The event will be held at our Manhattan store on Friday October 11th and Saturday October 12th. We'll have our Fall shoe delivery by that time and a selection of samples, so you'll be able to see a range of lasts and sizes. Leather and suede swatches will be on hand as well. Our staff and a VASS representative will be there to guide you into the perfect pair.

    And as a special incentive, if you purchase a pair of VASS MTO shoes during this event, you may take 15% off any other items bought at the same time (which includes sale merchandise but does not include special order/made to order merchandise). If you cannot make it to our store, then no worries, we can take your order over the phone and the discount on any other merchandise purchased will still apply.

    We hope to see you there!

    VASS Made To Order Event

    Friday October 11th, 12:30PM to 7:30PM
