    Thanks for the mini review. I've been interested in their trenches too for a while. Any way we can get a fit picture?

    I tried an at-home dye job on a discounted cotton LBM from Epaulet a few months ago. I wish it went a fraction as well as those ones look above.

    I put a few hours into the process and I'm not sure the purple colour I ended up with was worth the effort. FWIW, I was going for a dark Burgundy. I can't decide whether to invest more time into the project to darken things further.

    I really think the overdye process needs a few critical things most DIYers don't have: patience, chemicals, and insanely hot water.

    Do you guys currently have any black wool fabrics available for MTO Walts? A tropical wool or hopsack. I seem to remember some being available maybe last year...

    Last time I liked a dye job I did, it was in a pot on the stove, water almost boiling. I tries a similar dye job a few months later in the washer on hot and it was not enough.

    You can do an MTO in most stock fabrics if you e-mail them. I've had several made since I take a 37R (size 37 not stocked) in Napolis. I believe the single MTO upcharge is $50.

    @Epaulet Mike, thanks for the OD chino/MTO Doyle deal. Will definitely be getting in on that.

    I don't own a Doyle (yet), but being a 37R in Southwick, would you say a 37 is the right Doyle size, given the option with this MTO?

    I'm probably a 39R, and having tried both 38 and 40 in the Doyle, I would say 39 would be ideal for me.

    Since these are MTO, will they allow any more sizes? i.e. 58 XLONG? I usually can use a 58 Long, but some of the more trendy jackets don't have long enough sleeves for me and often don't have any fabric to let out or have working sleeve cuffs making it difficult.

    Being a 37 in Southwick and owning a 38 Doyle, I would say, yes, get a 37 Doyle if you can. Otherwise, 38 is probably best.

    The available sizing for our Vittorio is:

    46 to 60 REGULAR
    50 to 58 LONG

    But the sleeves and jacket body can be shortened by up to 2" or extended up to 3". So we can effectively make an XXLong, and we should be able to cover everyone with this.


    Yup, we absolutely will. Southwick reorganized its MTO program this season, so the swatches were extremely delayed. We're planning to get them online shortly and both Longs and XLongs are possible. And, of course the LBM/Vittorio program that I mentioned above will also give you a lot of great options.


    Yup, we definitely do, it's just not in the collection. We have the same Black 120s that we're currently selling in the OTR Walt. It would be $245. If you drop us an email, then we can set you up with that order.


    Yeah, home dyeing is really difficult. The commercial process is intense. These jackets were all dyed at our DTLA house, so the dye is uniform and colorfast.


    Should be coming in any week now, we'll shoot out a notification once they arrive.

    What's the turnaround time on the MTO pants?

    And are those MTO supplies limited, or are they permanent additions to the epaulet line.

    I just got mine (slate Japanese garment-dyed twill) this afternoon, shipping confirmation on the 25th, and I ordered on April 3rd. So just barely over three weeks before shipping!

    We quote 4-6 weeks, but this first batch actually made it through in 3. The turnaround wholly depends on the workload of the factory, and this is a fairly slow time for them, and a great time to get an order in. Things will start to get busier around the start of June.

    All of the MTO fabrics are subject to availability, and we're not the only account who uses them, so it's tough to estimate how long a fabric will last. Most of the time, we're simply told that it's sold out, we're not given advance notice. But I can give you guys a rundown:

    The Khyber Cloth is essentially a basic and most if not all of those colors should be in stock for the next few months. Same with Seersucker and Pincord.

    For English Sanded Canvas, we should have all colors in stock with the exception of red and purple - those two are limited.

    Italian Cotton-Cash isn't necessarily seasonal, but the factory bought that conservatively because of the price. I can see that selling out.

    The lightweight wools and linens are all seasonal, and most of the more desirable colors will sell through.

    The basic solid cottons (chambray, "khaki colors") should be in stock all of the time. If you want the tonal seersucker or the Japanese Garment dye, you'd want to get that ASAP.

    The patterned linens are pretty limited in stock, but they don't sell nearly as fast as the solid ones, so they'll probably hang out for a bit.

    Mike mentioned that there will be some EPLA shorts coming soon. Initial fabrics mentioned were washed duck canvases and the navy digicam. The fit is supposed to be good for all Rivet/Walt/Rudy/Driggs folks and will have a 9" inseam.
