    Same here! Thinking over the western shirt, never really worn a denim shirt before.

    I grabbed the engineer one (along with the jeans and a T). It will look awesome untucked with raw denim and a work boot.

    Can't wait to see Rob's gear today!

    Starting my morning off right. Just picked up my second pair of walts (navy duck), first rivets (desert) and a pair of wilshires. Here's hoping they all fit :nodding:

    I seriously considered applied for the part time job. Will be better than the Barista job awaiting me when I return to the US at this rate with my second degree.

    Is there an employee discount ;).

    Just picked up a pair of Wilshires. I'm a little concerned that the thighs will be too tight, because the measurements there do look a little smaller than the Rivets. If they don't work out, I'll have to wait for the Rudy fit Bond jean!

    EPLA looking as strong as promised... too bad I'm all stocked on the things offered so far. Just whets the appetite for work jackets and sweatshirts, though...............

    This would have been a shoe-in for the contest winner considering the bulldog appreciation around here. Of course, Maximus might have needed a bespoke sized Vass shoe.

    Also, I'm in for a package of EPLA goodies. Picked up the jeans, natch, the western shirt, and a plum colored tee. I've never paid $40 for a t-shirt before I don't think. Am I going to like it? :rotflmao:

    Also, also, I like the use of the word "jeans." Lacks the pretense of selvedge or even denim. Gettin' me some jeans, boys.

    Anyway, excited.

    Loving the new expanded lineup, but yeah why $40 for the t-shirts? I usually get usa-made garment dyed t-shirts for less than half that. Guess I should see one before making any conclusions

    I wear a 33 in the RC and the thigh is about as tight as I'm comfortable with. The same size in the new denim has a .5" smaller thigh. Is it safe to assume the tight will stretch to at least that of the RC after wear?

    I pulled the trigger on the Wilshire as well. Assuming the fit is the same as or similar to the RC, it should work well for me.

    Honestly, I bought it half because I like the color and half to see what they put together for the tees.


    I'm factoring in some stretch in the denim in my sizing. Should be there considering the materials and the construction.

    Well now I'm kicking myself for not submitting this one. [​IMG] Bespoke dog shoes. I can see it now. haha [​IMG]

    Sounds like a nice collection of new EPLA gear. I think I'm going to sell my N&F selvedge ones so I can grab the EPLA ones. I actually think the EPLA will fit me nicer as my N&F ones are just too tight on me.

    I'm actually very curious about this. I wear a 32 Walt, and can wear a 32 Rivet comfortably, but they are a little snug in the seat. 33s are a little lose in the waist but work great otherwise--can take in, but depends on how motivated I am. The thighs on my 32 Rivets are great, but I would not want to go any smaller, esp in denim. I have a fair bit of experience w/ raw denim and the thigh is the one place where stretch is particularly hard to achieve. I'm curious about the thighs on the Wilshire, esp since to account for waist stretch, I could easily size down to a 31 (my normal raw denim size assuming the thigh measurement works for me).

    Def curious to hear people's opinon, as well as Mike's. I could order a couple sizes to try to, but I got (nice) new denim in Sept so I'm not in a rush for these. Excited about them though--they look like a great jean and one I'm hoping to be able to wear.

    I went TTS on the jeans. The description says they'll stretch so should be fine. I'm sure waist will be loose but I have a belt for that, and rest should break in.

    Ha I also went with the plum t shirt. Looks dope.

    Can't wait to get in on the rest of the line.

    So...I know the description says "true to size" but I'll ignore that advice in typical internet fashion and ask whether measuring the waist of an existing pair of jeans (washed raw denim) is a good idea. :smarmy:

    Bring on the hoodie and the next wave of Carmina GMTOs!
