    Everyone already knows this, but Mike and Adele run a top notch operation. They were a pleasure to deal with in my first purchase.

    Can't echo this loud enough. I love every piece I have from Epaulet, which is rare and excellent enough - but more than that, they just hit the customer service completely out of the park. Don't hesitate to hand these fine folks your business.

    could i ask if the walt trousers are constantly stocked? or do new ones (materials) come out every season, making the ones offered this season obsolete..
    thanks guys
    feel free to[​IMG] [​IMG]


    The walts usually come out in small batches of dead-stock fabric. When they're gone, they're gone. Mike does a great job getting new styles in pretty regularly but if you really like a pair I would move because they often fly off the shelves.

    If you see a trouser you like, better grab it, because trouser restocks don't happen very often.

    We have a few basics that we'll run (Super 120s, Gabardine, Moleskins, Charcoal Flannels) and I generally release a batch of deadstock or otherwise limited fabrics every two months or so.

    One note for this coming fall is that fabric inventories are pretty clean. Most of the goods that I've been able to buy are early recession casualties. They came from European mills that produced too much, or American manufacturers who couldn't afford to make them into clothing. This Fall, our assortment is probably going to be more limited, as I literally tried to make up everything in sight last Fall. So even if we're moving out of the season, if you like something like the Burnt Umber tweed or Taupe Flannel, you should consider picking it up - the fabrics are insanely nice, and it will probably be difficult to get anything like that for around this price again.

    Can't echo this loud enough. I love every piece I have from Epaulet, which is rare and excellent enough - but more than that, they just hit the customer service completely out of the park. Don't hesitate to hand these fine folks your business.

    If you insist...

    I'd been eying those flannels for awhile. . .

    Haha, steez overload with that pairing! Don't even want to think about our incoming sand suede Yuketens with that!

    Would love some more deets on these bad boys.

    Thank you sir!

    And I couldn't resist - we took some quick iphone shots of the Millerain piece. It's really incredible - especially for the money. I don't have the final pricing yet, but it's around $400. We got the US exclusive for it. The details are insane.

    Guys - about to pull the trigger on some of the rivet chinos. Would you recommend I get the same size as my Walt trousers?

    That orange GANT parka is super dope, and I want to pull the trigger, but the measurements kind of scare me. 22" p2p for the small? Since it's not a winterweight jacket, there's no way that there's a thick lining.

    It looks really good on the model, but I'm about 5" shorter than him, and just don't know how the parka will fit. [​IMG]

    Mike told me that he recommended sizing down one from your Epaulet shirt size.

    Nice, thanks for posting up the pics!

    Would love some more deets on these bad boys.

    We're doing a special makeup of 24 pcs with Yuketen this season. It's the 4-eyelet ranger moc with a crepe sole done up in all sand suede. Oh man, it's going to be so nice. Should be here in about 2 weeks.

    Holy shit this is dope. What's the weight like?

    Without going overboard, I have to say that this jacket is incredible. When it comes to waxed outerwear, I always consider how it stacks up against a Barbour jacket. Is the liner good? Does it feel solid? Can you wear it for years and actually wear in in the rain? Is it something that will age nicely?

    When I saw this at Capsule SP 2011, I was wowed by it. The details are all on point, the fit is perfect, and crucially - this jacket has a solid weight and heft. If I had to guess, the waxed is about 8 or 10oz. This sounds light, but it's not - it's the same weight as the usual Barbour jacket (and the same British Millerain fabric). It's a bit lighter than the Triton jacket, for any guys who own that already.

    Stoked about the Yuks, and the millerain is dope...may have to pick it up, but I need something more lightweight right now. Priorities!

    Damn. [​IMG] I'm a S in Epaulet, so I guess this won't work for me. If only there was an XS...

    Yup, the p2p is big on this thing, but it actually makes sense with the overall fit. Gant Rugger wanted to repro a classic 70's fit and silhouette, so it's not super-tailored around the body - especially in the chest. Kind of like a Harrington. But if you size down one from Epaulet or get the equivalent J.Crew size, I think that you'll dig the shape when you put it on.

    I wear a medium in Rugger oxfords. Is this equivalent to a Epaulet M meaning I could get away with a small Gant parka? or is it just going to be too big?
