This is all great news.
The touch of fur is a little unfortunate. I wonder if there'd be any way to use some other sort of animal product (like deer? not entirely educated on this topic) in this type of garment, where at least there's some hope for the consumer that the entire animal was used.
Got my Epaulet camo corduroy shirt the other day. The only thing better than the fact that I love it is that my wife thinks it's obnoxious.
Overall, the fit on the Epaulet shirts is perfect on me.
Sure, I got them from Epaulet last year. Mike did two runs as a group MTO. Black Balmoral Boots in scotch grain leather on the forest last. These have become my winter boots when dressing up (which is usually everyday). I wear them with suits and any black or gray slacks.
I think you have to be at least 6' plus for this to work...for shorter than that, a single reverse pleat is the most I would do...it just serves to elongate your legs (as its usually in conjunction with a higher rise trouser) which tends to make guys smaller than 6 look like they have no torso at all.

Wearing my Shetland cardigan for the first time. I'm a solid medium and 38R in Epaulet but the medium was quite small and large is more lined up to medium IMO. Don't think it's available anymore anyways.
Question though...it comes with a tag that says to hand wash it "frequently." How come?
I would only wear it to work and on top of a button down so I can't imagine it getting too dirty. My typical sweater approach is to dry clean once (maybe twice) per season.
Btw, awesome fit as always Rob.
Which Shetland cardigan are you talking about? I have several -- one of which I've had for 2+ years -- and, like you, I dry clean once in a blue moon and it's turned out fine.
It's the "Epaulet Shetland Cardigan French Blue Marl."
Glad to hear it doesn't have to be hand washed and triple rinsed!! I'm really anal about my clothes...but not sure I could commit to that
Epaulet white OCBD and moleskin Walts
Interesting point. It would definitely be a consideration for me; I already have a short torso and extremely long legs, so I don't need anything that accentuates that. The rise on the Walt is about as high as I ever would want to go. Still though, if we could get the double reverse pleat without the high rise like the Connery look above, maybe then it would work?
EPLA western shirt and plum tee and heavyweight RC:
Yeah I have the Black Grape Marl and have had it for 2.5 years or so (from whenever they introduced it). I've dry cleaned it maybe once and it looks practically new. One time when I walked into the store with it on, James briefly thought I had picked a new one out from the display to buy. It's a hearty piece. You should get a lot of wear out of it.
Awesome, glad that you dig it!
Hmm, you can definitely ignore that.
I rarely ever clean my sweaters. Unless you actually spill something on it, they stay pretty clean. I'll typically dry clean them once or maximum twice a season.
You can hand-wash pure wool, but it's kind of a pain in the ass and you need to block it out for proper drying. I'd just recommend to dry clean it and do what you always do - it's a long-wearing piece that you don't have to baby.
I'm really looking forward to how that shirt ages
