Expensive? Normally messing with shoulders is pricey
My tailor is expensive in general (eg 35 to hem, 35 to take in waist) so it's all relative. The jacket alterations were 200....so IMO yes, expensive.
But he didn't touch the shoulders as the shoulder size isn't huge between 38-40. He did have to open up the back and...well, I honestly don't remember what else he said he did
Wow 35 to hem/waist? I understand he might be amazing but damn... My tailor is like 1/3 or 1/4 that.
The gif exchange above -- on both sides -- is pretty fantastic.
Hey guys, I've got some photos to show you:
First off, one of our good friends and customers was kind enough to model the OD Oxford sample. He wears an Epaulet Medium perfectly. This sample is about 0.75" too tight in the chest and around 1/3" inch too small in the shoulders, but we'll compensate for that in production.
Next up are some shots of our upcoming Samuelsohn jacket fabrics. These three will be in-stock styles:
I wish that I took a shot of the sample of this fabric made up. It was so freaking boss. It's SCREAMING for the White Wilshire jean and some tassel loafers.
Classic guncheck, will be very italiano with the Bernard shape
Whisper-light silk and linen blend. If you enlarge the image you can see the small nubs that run throughout the weave
And last, we're putting the finishing touches on our Epaulet x Gitman MTO shirting program. Here's a sample shirt that we had made up to test the system. It has the cutaway collar, MOP buttons, and "FTW" embroidery. You know how we do it!
that is pretty funny. And pretty true.
I don't disagree, it's a lot. But Toronto seems to be limited when it comes to quality tailors and he does a great job. It's just annoying to drop a bunch on Epaulet hauls and then not get the most out of them.
That guncheck Samuelsohn looks amazing.
overdye looks bangin, looks good w/o the darts, def pick up a couple
It's KZO. 'Reactor' cardigan, SS10 or 11? I should know, I have one just like it. Got it from Epaulet, too.
Was the 25%off code end?
Edit: looks like it ended
Can't believe the veneto moleskin is still around. Pick one up a few weeks ago in nyc and very happy with the decision. Great coat and lots of compliments...
Rad, thanks for the info. It's pretty awesome, all the more so now that it's completely unobtainable.
Also, I picked up the duck rivet chinos in leaf for no apparent reason.
