1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Mike,

    When do you think the new Rivets will be released?

    Thanks!

    the saddest part about you guys not keeping size 28s in stock is that they don't make it to sale :(

    Couldn't help grabbing a couple of tweeds and the burgundy Hopsack.

    In a pinch, a size 30 can be altered to fit like a 28 for not too much money. It may be more economical to purchase a size 30 if it's on sale and have it tapered and brought in at the waist then special ordering a 28 at full retail.

    Went with the navy one. Had been considering this for a bit and with the recent reduction, seemed a no-brainer. And yes, love the weather we've been having here in Chicago

    Sure thing, what style are you looking for in particular? Our next delivery is slated for about 2-3 weeks.



    The OTR jacket will probably have horn buttons to coordinate with the trousers, but we can of course MTO it with smoke buttons and self patches. No problemo.


    We're in the early development stage of it right now. We'll use the Rivet chino fit with a felled back seam and the softest twill that I can find. Actually I'll start with the softest twill and then we'll wash the hell out of it. It's going to have a very relaxed and casual vibe.

    The bottom cuff will be a ribbed wool cuff, like on the sleeve of a sweatshirt. You see these kind of pants on the market, and quite a few guys have asked for something like it - and I personally own a similar pair that I really dig. The main differential in with our product will be:

    1) Rivet chino fit that everyone knows and loves
    2) Really freaking awesome fabric and better quality construction. Great wash effects to make it very soft and comfortable
    3) A seam on the bottom that will allow the inseam to be tailored. This is pretty huge, as most of the time you're stuck with these styles. We're going to build in a way for a tailor to easily take the inseam up and re-attach the original cuff.

    Imagined in the context of our EPLA collection, you'd get these in khaki and pair it with our upcoming washed white chambray shirt, indigo denim jacket, and sport trainers. Good to go.


    Excellent - glad to hear that you're pleased with them! I love that leather.


    Absolutely, we can easily do that for you. We'll have our Trouser MTO program up in the next few weeks and that's going to be an option.


    Yes, the Topcoat is sized to work over a suit in your usual size.

    RLBL is REALLY slim. The Weller is slimmer than anything off the rack at Brooks Brothers, but not as slim as RLBL. I imagine that you'd need to size down for the same fit, but you'd want to match up measurements on that. Matt can help you find your correct size too if you want to email him at matt[at]epauletnewyork.com

    We've made navy patch pocket jackets in the past, but we don't have anything available at the moment. But we can easily order that as an MTO piece for you.


    Sure thing. MTO on Chessboard would be $795. Lead time 4-6 weeks. We're running pretty low on that fabric, so you might want to do that sooner than later if you're really interested in it.


    Absolutely. The "old" Epaulet collar is buried.

    Our Epaulet x Gitman collar is not exactly like the "new" one, but it's very, very similar. You'll be able to opt for that or for a lower profile buttondown called the "JOE BD." That's what we used on our Ashland shirts.


    Haha, my apologies for that! We never sold 28's very well, so they used to make up the majority of the sale section.


    Oh, drop us an email with your info - we'll issue an online credit for the difference. No worries at all.



    We'll get a Rivet Chino restock shortly - hopefully within the next 2-3 weeks. Same thing with basic Walt trousers as well.

    This has been the largest sale of Fall-Winter stuff that we've done, and it's mostly due to my over-buying of things like tweed and medium weight jackets. Before we moved to LA and opened here, I did a large analysis of our online customers, and it's cool - many guys like StanVan and Oisin were ordering things like sportcoats and heavier wool trousers. Boots too. Lots of shell cordovan.

    Well, I quickly learned that our online customers make up mostly everyone in Southern California who is interested in this kind of stuff. Which is fine - we're developing all sorts of EPLA goods that are better suited for local tastes. But it meant that my stock got totally skewed. Rivet Chinos sold out in most basic fabrics (they're the best selling thing in the SM store), but we ended up with a lot of extra tweed and F/W speciality goods. So we've got a gonzo sale on one hand and zilch in stock for some very necessary basics. But no worries - I'll get everything in line shortly!!

    Such an honest and clear answer. That type of transparency is rare and so appreciated. Yet another reason I love to support Epaulet

    Anyone have that chambray LBM jacket and want to comment on it? Very tempted. But also tempted to see what's coming in Samuelsohn for s/s. Fit in the Samuelsohn is really impressive to me.

    Oh and @PorterInjax can't argue with you. Definitely a no brainer to pick up a piece like that with pretty much your choice of size.

    Really digging the Rivets in Plum Duck, but not sure how the Rivets would fit me. I remember that Dylan recommended me to stick with Walt/Rudy as it was a better fit for me.

    Any chance of a crossover with that one? I prefer the ducks over the Bordeaux Twill due to it being more casual.

    As a SoCal resident I love to drool over all the heavywieght tweeds and flannels you guys put out in the fall, but I know I'd never get a chance to wear that stuff if I bought it.

    I bought this jacket shortly after it came out to wear during my December vacation in South Beach. I paired it with a funky blue shirt and orange linen trousers from Epaulet/pink oxford cloth trousers from J. Crew, and received a lot of compliments. I think it would go great with the Japanese cotton special order trousers from Epaulet as well.

    One thing to know is that the jacket has fade marks not unlike the LBM 1911 casentino wool coat. These marks are consistent with the casual vibe of the jacket, but makes it a bad match with a dress shirt, tie, and wool trousers. If you're going to stay casual, the jacket will be very versatile.

    Can anyone comment on the weight of the olive herringbone tweeds? My only pair of tweed pants is the factory find chartreuse ones, and while I really like them, they are heavier, warmer, and a bit more itchy than I want in my next pair.
