    Easy pant is looking interesting, I would like to see more leg taper, but we'll see how they wind up.

    Interested in the easy pants with a bit more of a taper and maybe an alternative to the tie belt. Like the pleats!

    The thread is already stuffed with endorsements for Mike and the Epaulet team for great customer service, but let me add one...

    After falling in love with some of the fabrics, I orderred a couple of the MTO shirts. I'm experienced with plenty of MTM and have dialed in my measurements pretty well, but this was my first with Epaulet. Still, I scrutinized the details and came up with numbers that I was sure would work for me. I was very aware that the disclaimer said measurements could end up being +/- .5" and thought I had extra to make it work.

    While the overall fit was perfect, unfortunately my sleeves both showed up at the lower end of the -.5". The sleeve length out of the box was just on the edge of perfect but, with shrinkage from future washes, knew they wouldn't stay long enough.

    Know that feeling when you've done a MTO and think "I just screwed up and I'm stuck with it?". That's what my gut was feeling when I reached out to Mike and explained the situation. It wasn't their fault, they were within their stated range, I just didn't plan far enough ahead for the possibility of being on the short end.

    Mike's response? "No problem, send 'em back and we can swap out the sleeves - it's easy". Not only that, but he kindly collaborated a bit with me on my measurements, shrinkage, and what the best numbers would be to get it right.

    I sent back my shirts and got them returned in a few weeks with new sleeves and just perfect all around. Now I know the feeling when, after having thought I barely botched an MTO and am stuck, a great customer service team makes it right - even though they really weren't at fault to being with.

    Lesson learned: even if you know your measurements and are experienced, reach out to them if it's your first time. Every house has it's own nuances and style, Mike probably could have saved me and his team the hassle had I included him in the first place.

    In the end, a big +1 for Epaulet MTO and their entire team. Looking forward to more shirts in the future!
