    The Snorkel Parka is extremely warm. I wouldn't say that it's as warm as a thick down Canada Goose jacket though. But that's part of its selling point for many guys.

    Canada Goose jackets are heavy as hell and extremely hot. They're the warmest jacket that I've ever worn. The only issue was that they were overkill for most days in NYC, and I'd be roasting whenever I was on the subway or walking around indoors. Forget about hanging it somewhere in a bar or restaurant - it was like trying to stash a small child.

    If you're somewhere much colder than NYC, then the Snorkel Parka's usefulness will largely depend on your lifestyle. For regular commuting and metro living, it does an excellent job (outside of looking rad). It's military-spec and designed to hold up in very cold temperatures. If you spend a lot of times outdoors and need something for hiking or long activities, then you're probably better off with a thick down-filled parka.

    For sizing, going TTS should absolutely give you enough room for a very thick sweater underneath. I take a 41 jacket and can still wear the 40 Snorkel over a suit without being scrunched. We're down to the last few units of the Snorkel Parka and it is officially a closed edition. Spiewak shuttered their USA production of this piece, and it will never be made again. Last of a dying breed!



    Great! Perfect EPLA look. The jeans are the Grey Selvedge Wilshires. We're sold through most sizes at the moment, but restocking in about 3 weeks.


    I'd say the 30 Driggs is going to be the only size that works in the waist for you. The Driggs leg is pretty slim, so it may be a bit tight in the thigh if that's typically an issue for you. It's the slimmest shape that we offer. You may be better off with a Walt 30 and then just tapering the legs after the knee if you like a sharper fit there.


    I'd say that they're pretty balanced between chest and shoulder. They're not as cut in around the waist as a sportcoat though, in keeping with the French work jacket shape. Go with the Medium if the small has a chance of being too small in the chest. If the shoulders are a touch big, I don't think that it will be a real issue - it's meant to drape at the shoulders anyway and the enzyme washed canvas will mold to you.


    Yes sir! About 1.5 weeks out on that.

    Mike,

    Did you happen to catch my post on the previous page? I was wondering if you had the opportunity to check with Vass on that stitch toe boot in Oxblood? That would be great to get organized for a fall delivery

    Mike, will the Doyle be a staple style for Epaulet, with various fabric versions in the future?

    The cut on the jeans are really great too, the right amount of slimness IMHO (at least oisin wears them well).

    I hope to try both in the near future...

    Yes sir! They can absolutely do it within that time frame. We gonna go with all of the details as is?



    Absolutely. The Doyle is already on order again in Olive & Navy duck - and we're going to bring in overdyed navy and black kaihara denim for it as well. The cut is perfect, and will lend itself to a lot of great materials. I'm looking into washable wool and heavyweight cottons for Fall/Winter as well.

    The jeans have been brilliant. We've sold the Wilshires better than I ever imagined, and I've had many guys tell them that they are the best fitting jeans that they've ever owned. One cut can't do it for everyone, but if they fit you, then they work exceptionally well.

    size down is probably the issue for me. I wear 42 blazer, and wearing 40 snorkel. I do like the close fit for jacket like that. @ComfortablyDumb if you go with Mike's sizing advice, you'll be fine.

    Picked up the herringbone grey Walts a few months ago and love them.

    How do the chessboard tweeds compare to the charcoal Birdseye?

    Sweeeet. Here are my thoughts but I am totally open and would love to know what others think:
    - New Peter last
    -Welted ( I think Goyser stitching may be too bulky which is why I said welted)
    Single leather sole (could go double)
    - Oxblood (1st choice) or antique or dark cognac

    I believe this is the antique cognac.

    Agreed. My options I threw out are basically that makeup but in Oxblood as opposed to antique cognac. I am open though depending on what a group would want to go with

    Mike can say for sure. My guess is $1,000-$1,200. Here is a shot of the Oxblood color
