Same thoughts here...
The Loden green Alt Wiens in the new arrivals section (http://epauletnewyork.com/collections/new-arrivals/products/loden-shell-cordovan-alt-wien) have TWO "Sizes" menus. One shows a full size range, and one shows only 3 sizes -- which one is right?
A noragi inspired piece?! The more adventurous side of my style is screaming!
so much temptation with all these ff swatches.
can't decide between the grey-red heathered check, navy wool-cash check, or the blackwatch
Haha me too!
It's been really exciting designing the EPLA line. We're taking New York in a really nice direction this year with more makers and MTO programs, and the LA line allows us to be more directional. When Matt first showed me the Noragi, I thought that it was really fresh, but "how the hell do I wear it" came into my mind. So we cooked up some modifications to make it a bit more wearable and practical, while still retaining the interest of the original style. I think that you guys will dig it!
Oh yes, sorry about that - it was a copy and paste error. I'll get the correct Alt Wien sizing up later this evening.
Cool! I personally prefer the blue - it will stand out nicely, and many guys use Factory Finds as a way to experiment with something a little more unique. It's a gorgeous fabric.
By the way, who won the EP contest?
Welcome to your first Cali winter during a drought! (Remember this when/if the next El Niño year is upon us.)
Mike, do you have the size measurements for a 48 XLONG FF jacket? I'm particularly interested in the shoulder, chest, and sleeve.
Chalk up one more 'interested' for this. The olive moleskin jacket from last year was underrated I think--it's one of my more worn Ep pieces. Will be good to have an alternative piece.
When you mentioned anything in the Pantone book--I would be down for something pretty bright, 'fuck off' category color from Pantone--hoodie. Maybe after you make up some basics and get it marinating in some heads.
Scottish light tatt!
You know, looking at pictures of a noragi makes a lot of sense of all the Asians where I am who always wear unbuttoned cardigans. I see what they're going for now and I like it.
I can't decide whether to go with the Navy Cashmere Flannel or the Herringbone Windowpane...
And that Cognac boots are stunning. One question though, can I dress up with these boots? I am wondering if the commando sole will throw things off a bit.
Tough choice on those two! Both of them are great.
For the Cognac boots, the overall style is fairly rugged. If you dress them up, then they would be best matched with thicker fabrics like flannel and tweed. They would be brilliant with that.
I don't have a 48XLong to measure, but the scaling is done on a CAD system, so you can expect that it will move out in predictable intervals from the largest size in our measurements. If you like, drop an email to matt[at]epauletnewyork.com, and he can personally assist you with sizing.
We have to still do the voting - I haven't forgot! We'll get it rolling next week.
Here's a quick fit shot of the Snorkel Parka in action during the infamous "Polar Vortex." My jacket is from last year, and both Logan and Jim picked up their Sage parkas this season.
I know that it's hard to believe but we actually did most of our drinking AFTER this photo was taken.
Just got word that I might be going to New York in a couple weeks for work. Maybe I'll finally be able to get fitted after all!
You guys were closed last time I was back in LA for the holidays. I'm feeling lucky this time! Got my eye on those Factory Finds.
