Discussion in 'Streetwear and Denim' started by LA Guy, Apr 1, 2009.
Plug for the Ironwood Donegals. I picked them up last year, and they're my single favorite pair of Walts, if I had to pick.
It still works, but you have to start the checkout process before you get warned that there aren't enough in stock.
Oh thanks. I guess shopify has been updated.
Just grabbed the Aubergine Twill Walts.
I'm kinda regretting I didn't have a chance to snap a pic of a fit for a birthday that I'd been invited to. I wasn't sure if I didn't go overboard with the "fanciness"-factor. Basically it was my trusty navy Eisenhower, navy suede longwings, leaf ducks and that favorite party shirt of mine:
^ Curious as well.
Also, Mike, what is the weight on the denim shirts? And the cheaper flannel ones, are they all around the same weight? Looking for some winter-ish options
Took a quick pic this morning. excuse the background mess.
That is my favorite shirt ever from epaulet! It's a bit louder than I normally wear but IDC, I try to only wear it EOW, but rarely make it that long haha
Outfit pic everyday is mandatory, dude!
I just wanted to comment here really quickly...
This thread is a meeting place for our customers, our customers-to-be, and guys who (at this stage) are just interested in the brand. As involved as I am here, this is ultimately your space to discuss and debate things. I try to make a lot of cool things, but threads with one track discussions can get boring quickly.
So from our side: we have no problem whatsoever with you guys talking about sports, movies, music, KARAOKE, whiskey, nike, cars, sporting clays, watches, whatever. I'd like to stay out of politics, nastiness, and arguments, but everyone here should feel free to talk about their interests. Over the years we've all developed very real (if remote) friendships, and you should view this as a clubhouse where you're free to discuss things with like-minded folks. IMO that's the best thing about this site, and about this thread in particular.
And Mr. Clemson: feel free to talk football as much as you like!
EDIT: added Karaoke for me, whiskey for NYI, nike for Wisith, and sporting clays for oisin
Let's not leave out karaoke!
Hmm, the denim shirts that we have now are probably in the 6-7oz range, which is pretty typical for a denim/chambray piece. Our EPLA shirts are going to be heavier and thicker. Around 9oz. More denim-head style. Knowing your steez, I'd recommend any of the $150 flannels. Great hand on the cloth, they wash well, and they're warm without being overkill. This one's a personal favorite: Buttondown Collar Ultraviolet-Charcoal Gingham Flannel: $150 It's easy to miss, but this fabric has a small scale herringbone in it too. It's so freaking cool.
Still on hold for now. I'm probably going to have to go to the factory in November to hash it all out. But we'll have other MTO things available soon!
Thank you sir! You're going to absolutely love them.
Sadly yes, those are all tapped out
I just bought a pair of the exact same Jordans. It's been a trip wearing them! I remember buying them when I was 15. I had broken my ankle earlier that year and I went to a all-boys Catholic high school with a strict dress code. After the cast came off I got a doctor's note stating that I needed to wear "supportive footwear." I convinced my mother that this meant Jordan III's. I wore them for a whole school season and the other dudes were insanely jealous. Putting those on brought all of those memories back! Now I just need to order Japanese Camo rudies with cargo pockets
Yes, all of the Walt/Rudy waistbands have a small opening at the top. It's part of the design - pretty much every high-end trouser is made this way. Even if you see an errant thread in there, don't stress out, it's not going to come apart.
Yeah, USPS is hit or miss. The Santa Monica and Manhattan branches are pretty organized. Most of our tracking issues come from the boxes sent through Brooklyn. That Red Hook post office is like the office that time forgot. It's still incredibly reliable though. We ship thousands of packages a year - both domestic and international, and you can count the lost ones on a single hand.
That is in the cards my friend! We'll have a crewneck fleece this Fall.
You are correct! Great look there.
My pleasure - thanks so much! Adele told me that it was very nice meeting you. Sorry that I wasn't there!
Hmm. Well first you'll want to use Distilled Water (not tap, and not spring) so that you won't get mineral buildup on your steamer. And just play around with it. You want to keep the want moving so that you don't burn the fabric, but you can move it very slowly. And you should press it against the cloth. Its not as instantaneous as an iron, but it's a lot more gentle. We're able to take the wrinkles out of Gitman OD oxfords, which look like they were rolled up into a tennis ball before shipping.
So, here's a very LA-specific response. I've learned a lot about the climate here over the past few months. Pretty much all of our flannel and tweed trousers need 65 degrees or less to be comfortably worn. So you wouldn't want to necessarily spend all day in Nightshades right now. That said, these are perfect to wear after 5PM. Especially here on the Westside where it's often straight-up cold at night. I've met so many guys who say that they can't dress well because it's so hot. But I actually find it pretty easy to dress up in the evenings. I was wearing my leather jacket at night back in August, where you'd be schvitzing like a maniac trying to do that in NYC until mid-October. I think that the opportunity to dress up and wear layered things at night here is really underappreciated.
Sounds good to me. So, on that note, who else can't wait for Anchorman 2!?
