congrats - this was a wise purchase
Is there a way to get buttons for braces put on right at the factory for MTO walts?
Well, you can earn a belt that glows like that over the course of a life dedicated to peace, harmony, and quiet contemplation.
Or you can just buy one like I did at a combination men's shop and newsstand:

I was really hoping dating Vanity would be part of it.
Does anyone know when Samuelsohn factory finds are? I seem to remember Mike staying something about them coming also... Not sure
What to wear with either pair of windowpane flannels? I'm leaning towards the navy ones.
I wish the Navy Windowpane were in my size, would have nabbed them.
Talking of windowpane Walts, this grey herringbone pair from a previous factory-finds round are one of my all time favorite trousers. Wearing today with the Klein blue Hardie cardigan (and EPxCarmina kudu jumper boots, not shown).
I would wear a grey or brown sports jacket. Personally, I also like to wear solid jackets when I have pants that have patterns, only to keep things simple. You can always introduce more patterns via your shirt, pocket squares, and ties.
That's exactly the info I was after.
Not sure many jackets would look too good over those, if you're referring to the ones on sale. Unless you want a more hipster type look, that is.
I just checked them out and think a grey jacket, especially a shade lighter than the pants, would look pretty bad.
Maybe a tweed jacket with a lot of texture but... yeah, not sold on it.
If you think of the windowpane pants as their base color, you can wear just about anything with them you could with blue or grey.
I would probably stick to solid or mostly solid, textured (like a Donegal tweed) jackets. Anything that mostly reads solid from a distance and works with navy and grey should work.
For shirts/ties/squares, outside of solids, as long as the pattern is a very different scale, it can work also (I would definitely rock a micro-gingham shirt with them).
Just let the pants do the talking and keep the rest of the fit simple, but interesting in some way.
Grabbed a Barena, thanks in large part to FrankCowperwood's praises.
Mike-any preview of what's coming for S/S?
Interested in sportcoats if you guys have any coming in.
Also, are you guys making any more side tab pants?
Short of being wildly uncertain of your sizing (and that shouldn't be an issue, because they fit pretty much in line with everything else Epaulet sells), I do not think there's any downside to buying this piece at this price.
What color did you get?
