i rock my cigar indys to the office all the time
Ah very cool. The Officer's Indy makes a perfect biz-caz piece - that was our intention from the beginning. Pair it with Chinos, Cramertons, Tweeds, Flannels, Moleskins, and you're good to go.
Vanson for Epaulet Waxed Canvas Triton Jacket
This jacket has been one of our best-selling pieces for about two years now. Crafted in thick waxed cotton, this waterproof piece is tough as all hell and will yield years upon years of service. It's absolutely the best waxed jacket available at anywhere near this price. We restocked our existing Black and Olive colorways, and we've introduced a new "British Tan" tone. Here's the lineup:
Vanson for Epaulet Waxed Triton Jacket British Tan: $450
Vanson for Epaulet Waxed Triton Jacket Olive: $450
Vanson for Epaulet Waxed Triton Jacket Black: $450
LOL. Yeah man the OG shadow dot. Haters gonna hate. I'm just gonna wear it everytime I see her now
That Triton jacket is the beezneez. If i hadn't just picked up a similarly styled belstaff, it would be mine! more versatile than you'd think...
I just promised my fiancee I'd invoke austerity measures until after the wedding. And yet an order confirmation for the Triton jacket sits in my inbox.
Thanks for making a liar out of me, Mike.
Looking forward to the new sweaters.
Last year I purchased the V-necks in Magenta, Navy Marl, Charcoal & Burgandy.
When I was in NYC a couple weekends again I saw that Triton jacket and about ruined my pants. If they weren't raw denim I probably would have just let it go, but the whole "no-washing" thing discouraged me. Those things are seriously a work of art. If I hadn't maxed out my Discover card on that trip I would have definitely picked it up. The tan version is amazing.
Haha, I did the same thing myself! I'm getting married in two weeks but somehow managed to buy myself yet another vintage watch last Thursday. The internet's a killer!
Thanks so much Sam and you're going to love this jacket - it looks even better in person.
Haha, I know, you were the Epaulet Superfine Merino baller of the year!
I think that you're really going to dig the new ones - we should have them live in an hour or so, and I'll post them up here shortly.
Man, if people actually shat their pants in my shop, then my sales of trousers would be really through the roof! I've got to keep trying harder.
If you ever get a waxed jacket, don't stress out about the washing bit. The base fabric isn't denim - it's actually a tough duck canvas. You can't really clean waxed cotton, but you somehow never need to. The wax makes it very stain-resistant, and it doesn't really pick up smells. I wore a Barbour parka for a good 6 years straight, and never lamented the fact that I couldn't clean it. I'd air it out every now and then, sometimes use Febreeze, and re-wax it every two years. I even had this jacket in Austria, where pretty much everyone smokes - pretty much everywhere - and pretty much all the time. I came back smelling like a human ashtray on many occasions, and the jacket would be okay after being in the breeze for a few hours.
Sincere best wishes to you and Adele.
Epaulet Superfine Merino Sweaters
Our popular slim-fit merino sweaters have returned! We've got an all-new palette of colors for this year. Like our first collection, these are completely made in Italy and are based on an original 1960's fit pattern.
Each one of these pieces is hand-dyed. First, the sweater is knit in a natural, undyed wool. The entire finished garment is then dipped into a dye batch, resulting in a deep main color with very cool tone variations at the ribbing and main seams. Each is made of genuine woolmark 100% Australian merino wool. We've got four colors to choose from in the V-necks:
V-Neck Superfine Merino Hand-Dyed Graycast Navy: $195
V-Neck Superfine Merino Hand-Dyed Hunter Green: $195
V-Neck Superfine Merino Hand-Dyed Heather Gray: $195
V-Neck Superfine Merino Hand-Dyed Scarlet Red: $195
And.... I'm thrilled to introduce our first Turtleneck. This thing is so awesome. Stick this under a tweed sportcoat and you are so freaking mod it hurts.
Turtleneck Superfine Merino Hand-Dyed Charcoal: $215
Thought I'd share this shot of the Grey Weller. The arms appear short, but I'm just wearing it a bit crooked. They really fit fine. Propping up a 5D on an ironing board and two granola bars to level it is harder than it sounds and took all of my concentration. The shade is probably a little lighter the the photo. I blame the lighting.
Face hidden because the place is a mess and I look/feel like shit
so.. green is an easier color to dye?
Just called Manhattan, ordered the khaki canvas and natty chromex belt...hope to pick em up in Carroll Gdns Saturday. Sorry to be a pain in the ass with the gift cert + paypal combo Mike...thx!
Ha! I was actually referring to the pants I was wearing in the shop. If I was wearing anything but raw denim I would have just shat my pants but held it in instead.
