    If anyone has a size 36 in either the worsted pine or tangerine/orange linen for sale, please PM me. I missed on both.

    Also, how did I miss the Desmond in 42??? Again, please PM me if you have one for sale.

    Agreed. I was gonna wear my blue and white duckie brown saddle shoes, but it was a family reunion and i didn't want a bunch of my relatives telling me "you've changed!"

    anything? i dunno, seems pretty versatile. wore mine today with a blue striped OCBD. Tan desert boots dressed it down, coulda put on a pair of brown wingtips to dress it up a bit more. I think they'll look pretty sick with my oxblood docs. For shirts, blue, cream, grey, white, reds, maybe certain browns or greens even, all seem like it would work.

    From what I've been told, it'll be sticking around in one form or another. It's a really cool shape and design that's different from the Southwick jackets in a few really cool ways. However, that said, the difference in construction between the Desmond and the Weller is noticeable with lighter-weight fabrics. The half-canvassing on the Weller really helps the jacket keep its shape around the lapels when not buttoned. The Desmond lacks this. With heavier fabrics, this is much less of an issue.

    I think Mike posted earlier in the thread that he was toying with the idea of making the Desmond into more of an outerwear piece. Last I heard he's definitely planning on doing something with it -- not discontinuing it. As to what that is, it didn't sound like he'd yet made a decision (or just wasn't going to reveal it yet [​IMG]).

    Of course, I said he ought to do it in the tan moleskin. But I am a crazy person who wears plaid pants in July.

    Make Epaulet your home page and click Refresh every seven minutes.







    Not that I do that.

    Yeah I love my Rudy's...picking up my French Blues and Stewart Tartans from the tailor tonight! I had to get them hemmed about a quarter of an inch, so they should be perfect now.

    Also, I just saw some nice Corduroy Walts go up on the Sale section....are any of these offered in the Rudy fit? I'd love to pick some up, but it looks like they're only available in the Walt right now.

    BTW...geoff why can't those Cigar Cordovans in your sig be in a 12B. I would have bought them by now.

    Just got my blue pinpoint oxford in, and I'm even more impressed than I thought I'd be. Killer fit, killer construction guys. I'm just upset that the pink was sold out in my size and it doesn't look like there will be a shirting refresh before I leave the country =[

    Whoa, you beat me to it! Thanks for posting this up!

    Now, I realize that the current winner is a Hugo Boss girl who's wearing red heels, a skin-tight dress, and a gold chain big enough to lock a bicycle, but if you could find it in your heart to vote for Dylan, please do so! There's no prize or anything - just the sweet, smug satisfaction of having the official "hottest shopkeep" in New York holding down our shop. In your face Hugo Boss!

    Here's the link to vote:

    Alright denizens of the Epaulet thread, or Mike himself, I don't often find an occasion to wear a suit but I did pick up this BoO/Martin Greenfield blazer at a sample sale a while back. I've got a wedding in a couple of weeks, and I'm trying to find a pair of trousers to pair with it. I'd like to go with a pair of Walts (the slimmest Epaulet fit?). Would anyone like to advise me on what I can get away with pairing with this? I'm looking to stay pretty conservative, just trying to complete the look, and the trousers did not come with. Thanks.

    Color is closest to the first picture, if not slightly darker. The white balance is off in the close up. Since it's wool herringbone, I'm worried purchasing a wool herringbone pant from somewhere else will be too close without matching. Can I successfully pair herringbone with a different trouser?

    Total noob on suiting. Thanks for any help.

    I don't think the pattern is a big deal. the best option would be to go darker with a darker gray or blue. However, because it is a summer wedding you could do something bright if you are adventurous probably these:

    http://www.epauletshop.com/servlet/the-1007/'Slim-Walt-Trouser-Washed/Detail

    http://www.epauletshop.com/servlet/the-593/Slim-Walt-Trouser-Cotton/Detail

    http://www.epauletshop.com/servlet/the-589/Slim-Walt-Trouser-Cotton/Detail


    Basically, don't try and match the fabric, because unless it is the exact same fabric, it will look off.


    If you have the confidence, my vote goes for the french blue trousers. That with a white oxford and some whiskey brogues could be super sharp.
