1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Golfham,

    Would like to see some better photos and something from the back also. The "ripples" on your upper arm should not be there. From the two photos you have posted, it looks a bit small.
    I bought the 38 in the Weller and parts of the jacket fit amazingly well but the shoulders were just too narrow. I returned it for a 40 and had it altered to fit. Maybe this is what you need to do with sizing up one from where you are now...can't really offer a definitive response without seeing additional/better photos.

    Yeah, try throwing on a different shirt.
    I prefer 1/2" of cuff, just a bit. That looks like 1 1/2" ish.
    I'm a little more thrown by the brown moc-toe loafers, but that's just me! :happy:

    Second pic is better but still looks a touch small everywhere, in my opinion.

    Yup, def size up. I think the jackets run a touch slimmer\smaller then their typical jacket size states. I think KG mentioned that he sized up as well.

    I think the Caine runs true to size (44 = 44 inch around the chest) rather than the extra couple of inches most blazers add. My other 44 blazers are about 46 around the chest to account for shirt/sweater underneath. The Caine does not have the extra room, so I would say a 44 fits like a 42. It looks slightly tight on me, but that look was big when I was in Amsterdam last year so I am running with it.

    It's such a beautiful piece, I wish I bought the correct size.

    That's why you buy two sizes and return one. Smart instant gratification. :nodding:

    Hey guys!

    Thanks for bearing with us over the past week - we're back and in full effect! We're going to be shipping and processing returns like fiends today. If you sent a PM or a customer service email, then expect to hear from us by the end of the day.

    I'll get back to everyone's queries in the thread AND I'll have some new product to show you later on today too! If I'm not mistaken, a bunch of new trousers are arriving today.

    welcome back from Vaca Mike.

    Word is that it wasn't a real vaca, but a disguised attempt to secretly get production rolling of your new "Epaulet for Vienna Lederhosen" in classic grey flannel wool, with Horween leather accents.

    Can't wait to see these.

    Welcome back Mike.

    I received my two sportcoats and 5 shirts this week. All fit and look great and am just heading to the tailor to get my coats shortened a bit in the sleeves.

    Anyway, thanks for everything and am pumped to see the new products so I can start putting together my next big order ... well I guess I have already started that with the Alden Brixton Boot and Shadow Dot Preorder.

    I get the feeling that this guy loves his job.

    Back from vacation, day 1 and "We're going to be shipping and processing returns like fiends today"

    If it is one thing that I have learned in terms of seeing something I liked with Epaulet (and I know there are many in this thread that can back me up), if you see something you like, PULL THE MUTHA FUCKIN TRIGGA. Trust me on this, because it could sell out in your size in any minute and IF there are re-stocks, you could be waiting for months. Simply look through all of the "Shadow Dot" posts where people missed the boat (and there are many other examples as well). Anyway, you have been warned ;)
