    If the sizing's different, what does that mean for those of us at the far-end of EP's sizing? A current XL barely fits, and the sportcoats and such only go up to 42 without an MTO (putting them beyond me). Will the overdyed oxfords work?

    I have to admit that I think I prefer the original collar point size... Them's the breaks though. Looking forward to seeing all the new options.

    FF Gitman medium. Really happy with the quality. I agree the fit on this is a little bulkier than the usual Epaulet M. I may take in the sleeves just a wee bit.

    Got the pale grey hopsack Walts, but have yet to hem them. My instinct is a fairly high no break no cuff, which is how I do my linen Walts. Should I try a 2" cuff? Concerned about not being able to wear them less formally.

    BTW those Walts are amazing.

    Will the overdye'd oxfords shrink much in cold wash and tumble dry low? or is all the shrinkage done due to the dyeing process or whatever it is

    Mike, will you guys be carrying the Driggs in other Duck Canvas fabrics besides washed caramel?

    Thanks!

    This was my question too, and the answer is that second one. I guess the dyeing process is more than enough to get any & all shrinkage out.

    I apologize for asking the question again, but in case I missed an update: any word on the Vass MTO double monks?

    Sorry to keep asking, but I want to make sure my earlier post doesn't get buried... Any word on Luigi Bianchi Mantova MTO feasibility? Every time I visit your site I see the Vittorio Loro Piana Windowpane Sportcoat and wish I could get it in my size [​IMG]

    What about wooden buttons on the chambray Doyle?

    We should have it in the next day or two - sorry that this got so delayed. I have to get them this week so I can ship everything from Cali. The factory is definitely on it.
    Good, arranging for the first fit sample next week. I can't wait - these will be the first jeans that I own in like 5 years.
    These XL's are definitely going to be too small on you. That said, we've had a lot of success with these new EPLA products, so you can expect our wovens to go up to XXL and the Doyle's to go out to size 44 a stock items in future runs. I end up evaluating things item by item and as long as there's reasonable demand for a size, then we definitely want to supply it.
    They're not actually that far off - the production collar is only about 1/3" shorter than the sample. These shirts had a really great reception at the event, and I think that you guys will dig them. They're definitely a lot more casual than what we typically make, but it works well in the LA context.
    Sharp! The pattern looks great on that.
    Awesome! So, everyone has their own opinions on this, but I'd vote no break and no cuff. I think that cuffs work better on thicker fabrics (flannel, tweed) and I prefer a clean hem on lighter ones.
    Probably. We've got the Driggs already coming in UK Sanded Canvas, and we'll keep rolling out new fabrics on that shape. I don't have any Duck's on board, but I imagine that we'll do some in the Fall.
    Should be here any week now, the Museum calf finally arrived earlier in the season. I don't have an update as of yet, but hopefully soon.
    Yup, this is absolutely happening. I'm getting fabric swatches this week for all of the available MTO options and we'll look to put them up by next week.
    I thought about that, but I'm not seeing any here that I'm in love with. I think that sticking with our existing buttons is the best course - they've proven to be really popular, and rather than spend a lot on special buttons, we can cut the price down and give everyone a great deal on the jacket.

    Mike, does this mean that all of the FF mediums have shipped? Or are we still waiting on some?

    If I'm a 42R in the Southwick suit jackets will I also be a 42 in the Doyle? The suit jackets fit perfect with little to no room to spare. I want to get in on the special edition Doyle but I'm unsure of what size I will need as I thought I read that they ran a little small.

    I am the same size and have a 42 Doyle. It is close fitting but I have been wearing the hell out of it and love it. I wear it like I would a sweater so nothing bulky under it anyway.

    ^ I'd agree with Don that it should work. I wear a 41 in Southwick and can fit a 40 Doyle, although it's a tight fit. The 42 would fit fine with a little tailoring in the body. Compared to our sportcoats, it's got a good amount of parity. I think that many guys who are sizing up are sizing up from their typical jacket size, and that the typical jacket runs larger than our SW design.

    That said, I'm checking with the factory to see if we can offer odd sizes. When in doubt, go up by an inch. The Doyle is extremely easy to tailor (plain cuffs, no liner, taped interior seams) so if it comes in a touch big then it can be easily shaped to fit. It's pre-washed and pre-shrunk, so your try on size is the correct final size. I'll know by today if we can offer this. I'd get a 41 for myself.

    EDIT: This is confirmed, we can offer odd sizes in the Doyle for this project. So if you feel like you're on the edge of an odd size, then just go up one, it should work out great.

    I have a question for all the guys who have purchased Driggs trousers. I'm looking for a slim chino that has a lower rise and slim legs. I have some RC and I like them but the leg opening for the size I wear still isn't very slim. I tried incotex and like them except they are a tad too slim in the calf area (they hug my calves and have no drap in that area). How does the Driggs compare to (1) the RC and (2) incotex trousers in the fit? I see the cotton and cashmere and those look like an excellent casual business pant.

    How much might the sweatshirts shrink given a wash and dry? The small fits me perfectly (I'm a bit between small and medium in shirt sizes), but wouldn't want it to shrink up too much.
