    There are some trousers I am eagerly waiting to wear for sure, and likewise, most are from Epaulet.

    Anything in 32 you want to unload? [​IMG]

    Personally I'd like to see more heavyweight chinos. I have olive heavyweight twill and love it. Looking at the last taupe one remaining in 31, hmm..

    I think that's going to be my project for tomorrow. I have way too much fall stuff to wear for it to still be 85 degrees at the end of September.

    No, we unfortunately dropped Mackintosh from the line. I loved the jackets, but too many of our guys found the armholes to be too restrictive. We brought in the Veneto Raincoat as an alternate option for it this season.

    If you like the full button front look of the Mackintosh, then you should check out our friend Jacob's coat: AMERICAN TRENCH. His jackets have a brilliant fit and he makes them domestically, which is no small feat for something that complex. Very fair pricing on it too.


    We didn't set this up as a Walt special order because we were stocking it, but if we're sold out of your size or you need an extended size, then we can absolutely make this for you. Same price, about 4-5 weeks for delivery. Just drop us an email and we'll get it rolling.


    Thank you sir! You're going to love them. Matt and Elliott knocked it out of the park with that design.


    Good timing! We actually just received a restock here in Santa Monica yesterday. All four sizes are in stock and ready to go:

    Thank you sir! We've made a lot of Alt Wiens and looked at even more of them this year, and that's one of the very best. I'm thrilled with how it came out.

    On the Antelope leather, this is honestly the first time that we're encountering it. Even if you search online, it's incredibly hard to find anything else in this skin outside of 1) Western Boots or 2) Italian-made products that you a lighter, heavily dyed and skived version of it for lightweight handsewn and women's shoes. So, I can't speak from personal experience. But Carmina advised us that genuine full-cut Antelope is one of the toughest skins that you can wear. You can treat it like Chromexcel and use a heavier conditioner product like Pecards to keep it oiled and maintain water resistance. Almost any conditioner is going to darken it a bit, and the color will darken and age significantly on its own with wear. It's pretty supple, especially for such a rugged skin, so the break-in should be very easy.

    Can I get in on that re-order in a special size? How does the Oscar last compare to Forest?

    Which is which? The Loden pair looks ever so much narrower.

    My bad, loden is forest, cognac is Oscar. Forest looks a bit sleeker but difference is minimal imo

    Oscar actually looks like it would be a better fit for me then. Sign me up for a 6UK!

    Spiewak x Epaulet N3-B Special Edition Snorkel Parka

    Hey guys,

    Here's the last new product that we rolled out this past week. We originally offered the black jacket last Fall, and we've added in the Sage colorway for this year.

    There's a freaking ton of text on the product page, but the nuts and bolts are:
    1. This is a special-edition piece of Spiewak's classic N3-B. It's done with a slim vintage fit and made to 1970's military specs
    2. We cut 60 pieces of each color. You need to size down one for the proper fit (ex buy a 36 if you normally wear a 38)
    3. It's made in the States and upgraded with a genuine coyote fur ruff (which zips off) and German horn buttons
    4. It has comfortable armholes and can easily be worn with a sportcoat underneath as a casual winter overcoat

    Quite a few guys on the forum picked it up last year and we received great feedback on it. And it's a true winter coat that is WARM. I realize that many brands put out something like a middle weight wool peacoat and claim that it's "toasty" on a cold day. And you're actually freezing without a hundred layers beneath it. Not here. I've worn this jacket in New York and Vienna in the absolute dead of winter and you're golden with a substantial sweater on underneath. It breathes well too, so you're also not psychotically overheating on a subway or inside a heated building. If you dig the style and look of this jacket, then it will be an absolutely perfect piece for you:

    Ok so I started to measure myself for my MTO Rivets and followed the YouTube lady as strictly as I could and still came out with very strange stats.

    My waist measured 31-32 and my inseam 27. This makes no sense as I've never fit in anything above a 28 and most pants fall only a little too far at 30.

    Can someone explain what I'm doing wrong? I desperately want to get this right on the first try!

    Don't measure yourself, get someone else to do it for you. You need to be in a neutral position. Bending and reaching over will skew your numbers.

    A lot of pants are novelty sized FYI. My true waist is 32" and my pants range from size 30 to 32 depending on the style and brand.

    I went to the Smith St. store today and tried on the Mulberry. Unfortunately it didn't quite fit me right, but my goodness that jacket is sick. The leather is amazing, and having the combination of hand warmer pockets and flap pockets is a great feature. If you are considering just go for it.

    Take a deep breath. This thread is from the internets, and it's here to help.


    Firstly, this. Don't do it yourself. Find the appropriate friend.

    Secondly, you really need the measurements of a garment to refer to, not just your own body. Ideally you have some pants that fit well enough that you like them, so you can at least compare and get a sense of what measurements represent for you.

    Thirdly, and I really am not trying to shill for EP here, but you might be best off just ordering some Rivets. MTO will be based on those measurements and pattern, so seeing how they fit, even if a size too large will be be huge for understanding how to size your MTO. It's legit, you're not abusing the system, and if it makes you a solid MTO customer, it's time and effort well spent from everyone. Shit, you can just open a Bill Me Later account with your PayPal account and never even really have to deal with a bill.

    Oh and fourthly, don't get hung up the tagged size of previous pants. They are, at best, a rough approximation.

    Just lost my Epaulet virginity. Ordered two pairs of Rivet Chinos in Khaki and Navy. Decided to hold off on MTO until I see that its an absolute necessity with the pants. Hopefully I can find a good tailor in the OC who can make up the difference. Was tempted to go express shipping since I'm so damn excited, but decided to save the money until I see if they even fit.

    Everyone cross their fingers
