    Yes, didn't think about the clash with denim. A woven wool or a thick sashiko as mentioned could be really cool.

    So I just typed shashiko and Noragi into google and flipped through some ebay listings.

    Oh my.

    This could be really good...

    Absolutely. We'd plan to make it in a range of fabrics. Right now we're considering:

    1. One wash denim (same as the Western/Engineer, great to wear with chinos)
    2. Light wash, distressed version of that denim
    3. Black overdye
    4. Traditional Shashiko indigo dyed pattern


    Yup, I would stay away from grey and black tones for that cash windowpane jacket. And add in all shades of indigo denim (dark, raw, light) to go with those matching colors. I could see it worn with navy trousers too.


    No where close. We'd be around the price of the Western shirts, maybe 15-20% more at max. Hard to say until we do more development, but well under $200 for sure.


    Cool! The guys will be happy to help you out in person. Factory Finds is going to end next week, but we can always fit you for things going forward. And if you want to get in on factory finds, then drop Matt an email (matt[at]epauletnewyork.com) and we can work with you to find your size based on garments that you already own.


    Absolutely. We'll do a lot of cool EPLA stuff with wool and wool blends for the Fall.

    Looking great @Mr. Six. Sharp sc.

    Surreptitious shot of the heavyweight wool Daltrey and, hiding underneath the shirt,
    EPLA tee in green. What I want to know is how you get that parking at the airport.

    VISVIM uses a wide variety of fabrics for their noragis. Cord, linen, etc.

    Matt is going to be the only one who makes the noragi look good, but he is going to make it look amazing! :nest:

    Well. You're pretty likely right, but then that also sounds like a challenge to me. ;-)

    Noragi fit pic contest.

    We're getting ahead of ourselves.

    No sneakers to speak of, but I think I can come up with some weird shoes.

    How does the Wilshire fit in comparison to the Rivet? I understand that sizing is compatible. How do the thighs compare? Leg opening? Rise?
    From the measurements it seems like the Wilshire has a slightly larger waist that corresponds with a slightly lower rise. The thigh measurement actually seems smaller while the knee and leg opening are the same. The fabric of course will be much heavier so I'm looking for real-world experience on how it feels in person.

    Mike, sorry but I couldn't find if this question was answered previously.

    How do you take the thigh measurement on the trousers?

    If the website says the thigh is 13 inches, where is this measurement taken exactly?

    Tell me the rest of the lizard was used somehow, and these would be appealing. This and the fur stuff is a little bit tacky.
