    Great photos.
    Digging the blazer with the plaid pants. I have the same pants and will be copying the look this fall.


    +1 for me. All three of us can go out as a Navy Blazer & Tartan Trouser gang. When can both of you get to NYC at the same time for this to happen?

    Haha, we're really one of the only places to sell them. I think that you'll be really happy with the price to quality ratio on these. The lambswool and merino styes are the hands-down best scaves for the money that I've ever seen. We'll get new stock and a few new patterns around early October.

    I'll second this. I've got one of the scarves and, while it's not the nicest scarf I own, the quality/price ratio is off the hook and they'd be a steal at half again what Epaulet charges. Come winter, I'm probably going to grab another 2 or 3 for staple scarves.

    Do the Gant button down shirt sleeves run really long? I have long arms and usually have trouble finding sleeves that fit but Epaulet's charts indicate they are crazy long, like over 1.5" longer than comparable sizes in other brands and even slightly longer than my MTM. Mind blown (in a good way).

    Our Legacy XL sleeves are only 0.5" longer than S [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I have a Gant Rugger striped oxford (that I'm wearing today actually) in medium and the arms are plenty long enough for me. I'm 6'5" and usually need at least a 35" sleeve. Wish it was slightly longer in the torso for tucking in, but it works. I have another Gant Rugger in large that is perhaps a bit big in the shoulders but also fits well and is plenty long in the arms. This was a happy surprise for me. I want more Gant shirts for this reason.

    Very much so.

    Thanks guys, I took a flyer on one of the Gant by MB shirts just now... my latest batch of MTM are about 3/4 of an inch smaller in the pit-to-pit but otherwise match up exactly with Epaulet's size chart. Mind blown. I'm still in shock that I might be able to buy shirting off the rack, if these things work I will be going on an insane buying spree. Now if only the trousers came with a 36" inseam I would be an Epaulet convert.

    EDIT: looking through the size charts on the website it appears that the slim fit + extra sleeve length I am looking for is mainly found in the Michael Bastian line... the Rugger collection seems to have pretty standard sizing. Am I on the right track here?

    ime Rugger also has longer sleeves than similar brands, sizing otherwise is pretty standard. Sounds like Rugger should give you the extra sleeve length you need as well.

    I find Rugger sleeves are extra long for this past season. I hope they shorten it a bit for the FW.

    Interesting... I've heard a few people say this. My MTM sleeves are 28" and Epaulet's size charts show that the Bastian shirts have sleeve lengths of 28"(L) and 28.5"(XL) while the Rugger shirts are 26.25"(L) and 26.5"(XL), which is way more typical.

    I guess I will find out soon!

    I just know they are longer. But then again I feel I have short arms (people says its in my head). I know with a Gitman S, BoO M and Gant Rugger S, I had to get the Rugger sleeves shorting. Gitman / BoO sleeves are fine on me

    I believe you when you say they run long, but I wonder if they are any longer than the size charts indicate. For size small, the Gant/MB sleeves are supposed to measure out at 27", Gant Rugger 25.75", Epaulet 25.5" and Gitman 25". So you should get about an inch of extra sleeve length going from Gitman to Rugger, and another inch going from Rugger to Gant by Michael Bastion.

    Gotcha back on the shoes. And unfortunately, we won't get more gunmetal for another 8-10 weeks. We'll have a TON of it throughout the Fall though. The next restock of chinos is:

    1. Shorts by next Friday
    2. Olive Service pant in about 10 days
    3. Restock of Navy Canvas, new Khaki Canvas, and washed olive 12oz twill for end of August.

    .


    Mike,
    Do you have an Eta of when the olive service pants will be up online? Thanks!

    Hey guys!

    After long last, the Rivet Chino shorts have arrived! We did small runs in both British Khaki and Navy. The waist fit is identical to the normal Rivet Chino. The thigh is a little bit larger - which is normal for when you convert a trouser fit to a short. The 9.5" inseam will hit a little bit above the knee on most guys. And by popular request, these are fully detailed with interior herringbone taping.

    Check it out! We ran off about 50 units per color. I've worn these 3-4 times a week since early May (I got the final fit sample back then), so I can personally attest to their excellent fit and durability. If you like the Rivet Chino, you're gonna dig these!

    Mike,

    Those shorts look great - pretty much exactly what I'm looking for. If a size 32 Rudy trouser is just a bit loose in the waist and top block for me, unaltered, do you think a size 32 in the Rivet Chino shorts would be a good fit?

    Thanks,
    Harry
