    I'm in Houston now and when I saw the hoodies earlier today I thought yeah right...it's hot as hell now and staying like this for awhile. Then, this afternoon, found out I need to be in Buenos Aires for a bit where it's winter so jumped on the faded indigo.

    I visited the Manhattan store yesterday and tried on the Vittorio sportscoat (really nice), the Wilshire jean (fits pretty well even though I wear Rudys), and the Doyle and Kamigata. I remember someone in this thread asking for advice on choosing between the Doyle and the Kamigata. In my opinion, the Doyle is nice but the Kamigata is something special. You're unlikely to have anything else like it in your wardrobe. Buy the Kamigata.

    Oh thanks. Not C&J. They are from Bexley, a French shoemaker. I like them because they offer blake-stitched shoes in really flattering shapes, the leather is soft and feels great starting on the first wear, and at a pretty affordable price too. And while that probably means they are made elsewhere, I've got two pair that I've had for a couple years now and the durability seems to be good. The only downside is that ordering can be kind of a process, and while they will take off VAT, you can then get hit with a "brokerage fee" aka customs charges. Also I had to place my order twice, because they couldn't process the first card I used. That meant I then had to use one that charged a foreign transaction fee instead of the one I have that doesn't.

    So to make this relevant to this thread, I believe Epaulet is working on getting a line of blake-stitch shoes going at prices lower than their other offerings (Alden; Carmina), which should fill this gap nicely without any of the hassle. For those of us in year-round warmer climates, goodyear welt is unnecessary and one can get sleeker shapes with the blake construction than with goodyear.

    Thanks for coming by - a pleasure as always!


    Thank you sir. Well, Houston is uniquely hoodie-unfriendly, but this medium-weight french terry is surprisingly comfortable to wear in warmer temps. I wore the sample a lot on 80+ days in LA.


    No prob, EPLA XXL's are confirmed for the next delivery. We won't have a long fit in the Doyle, but we will have size 44's in all colors

    Do the Carminas still come with trees? Last pair I picked up didn't and I recall something about you guys being short.

    Pretty sure that only Carmina MTOs came with trees, which were once Carmina brand but due to quality control issues were dropped for standard Epaulet trees.

    Right, was actually referring to an MTO order and forgot to mention it.

    I REALLY regret not grabbing the cross-hatch when it was available. Did they have it in store?

    Not to my knowledge. I tried on a sample in dark indigo. Really nice.

    What size waist in Walts are you? They look great on you. (O.T. is that the chambray baker jacket from this season of E.G.?)

    Thanks! I wear a 29 across the board, though often size up to 30 Rivet Chino to get the fit I want.


    The jacket isn't a Baker. I have no idea what it is, actually. Only a tag in Japanese and a size. I picked it up thrifting.

    Trying to get in touch with Epaulet to put in an special order, no response in a week via email or PM. Is this normal from these guys?

    Highly unusual. Mike has been moving so I wouldn't suggest PM. Have you tried the general contact email address? You could also try Dylan at dylan@epauletnewyork.com
    He is around for sure as we traded emails last week
