lucy's tailoring in HB is pretty good for everything basic.
By chance is she the Lucy at South Coast? I've been to a Lucy's Tailoring there and really hated my experience. Refused to taper my pants to the extent I needed them and was overall unpleasant.
I can confirm the excellence of the snorkel parka. It's bad-ass and got me through a six week stint in Anchorage in the dead of winter last year.
It might be GQ, but it's still good to see Epaulet getting attention: http://www.gq.com/style/blogs/the-gq-eye/2013/09/epaulet-spiewak-n-3b.html
Just wondering, how does the snorkel parka compare to the typical goose/duck down jacket like Canada Goose?
From personal experience, this coat is the shit. I bought the black one last year and it was one of those pieces I kept going to all winter long. And at $400, I will probably grab the sage at some point this fall too. Its tough as nails, light enough to not have you a sweaty mess (and I sweat a ton) but warm enough to keep you good in even the most the coldest winter (with a sweater underneath). I think I might buy the Sage in a size up and wear it as an overcoat during crummy weather with a sport coat underneath. Awesome, American made product!
That hairdo in the sage pic is almost bordering on boy band
NYI - I mulled this one over wondering if I needed something this warm for eastern PA last year then missed out. How did you size yours compared to what size you wear in Epaulet shirts/jackets or top sizes in some other brands like Gitman?
Also, do you have any worn pics to share?
too bad they messed up the link
I've been reading a lot of this thread recently, great stuff. I hate to add spam, but I have the navy Eisenhower jacket in a small (currently out of stock) that I have no use for. Worn for all of a half hour before I came to terms with the fact that I should have gone medium. If anyone has the same jacket (navy or gray) or something similar they want to trade let me know.
If you're in North OC, I recommend G&G Tailors in Brea. I've been going there for a few years now and have a developed a great relationship with them. Check out Yelp or PM me if you want more details.
Pretty sure I went with a 38 (and I wear a 40 jacket)...here's some shots:
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
To the Epaulet folks,
Is it possible to order a duck canvas rivet in khaki color? (or too redundant because of the 8 oz offering?) I don't see it on offer on your website but thought it wouldn't hurt to ask.
Long shot, but does anyone have this overshirt in a large? Or could anyone help put me in the right direction so i could possibly get one ? Grey or Navy for that matter
anyone get the speckled tweed long sleeve polo?
