    ^ I would say the lawn shirts are really light weight, a little heavier than linen... but really soft. I definitely reserve them for warmer weather.

    The lawn fabric would be too lightweight to wear on it's own during colder months, but it is killer layered under a sweater. Mike suggested that, and it's great advice. I have the grape, and it looks great underneath a charcoal sweater.

    Thanks for the feedback on the lawn fabric. I love the ginghams but not sure I'll like that light of a fabric...I may give it a try though along with one of the flap pocket button downs that I know I want.

    That's a great idea. Never thought of doing that. Guess I know what I'm wearing tomorrow.

    Would love to see Epaulet do a couple of ginghams (especially a grey) in a traditional weight fabric. I would also be happy if they restocked my size in the grey gingham lawn shirt [​IMG]

    Just wondering - for those of you who have Epaulet trousers, do you generally only wear them in bizcas settings? Or are they slim enough to be worn with an untucked button down?

    I typically only wear mine to work, but that's more a function of the fact that the trousers I have are the more conservative/business appropriate fabrics which I bought specifically for that purpose, and I'm presently more focused on upping the work game since that's what I wear most often. That said, there have been some makeups that I would readily rock with more casual fits.

    I have Epaulet trousers and chinos, so I tend to wear the trousers in a business-casual or more formal setting, while I wear the chinos both at the office and around the house. That's just a personal choice, and I think you could easily wear some of the trouser fabrics with an untucked OCBD. In fact, looking through the fabrics Mike has out there, I can see that happening with a lot of the trousers. Which one(s) do you have in mind?

    While I mostly wear my charcoal flannels to work, I will wear them more casually when the mood strikes me. They work very well w. the Epaulet shirts tucked or untucked, if that's what you're wondering.

    Just exchanged a pair of Smiths for gunmetal gray chinos, and I couldn't be happier. Thanks Mike and Adele!

    the Stewart plaid trousers in particular would look killer in a more casual setting.

    Questionnfor the other chino owners. Mine come out of the laundry too wrinkles to wear and I hate ironing. Do any of you take them to be pressed? Wear as is or iron them yourselves? Thanks

    Totally agree. In fact, I was going to say something about solids and casual, but thought about the Stewarts and changed my mind.

    I iron them myself, mainly because I know I do a better job than most cleaners would. There's no substitute for hand-pressing.
