• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

My MTO Sinclair came in Friday and it's awesome! Already at the tailor to add internal pockets and take the waist in a bit. Can't wait to wear it!

@Epaulet I've been considering recently getting a sportcoat in pearl grey for casual wear - so the (P)Earl Grey MTO option certainly caught my eye. Given the elasticity of the cloth though, is it a bit risky to get this made up in the Sinclair shape?

While I am posting, here are some (albeit low quality) photos of EP sashiko back home in Japan ... (also the Wakefield (?) Harris Tweed 3/4 length jacket and plum Rivets - all still going strong)

As a matter of fact, I had the same thought and ordered the 8track last night as a Sinclair. Really looking forward to that.

I share your enthusiasm for the Sinclair. I was surprised by Mike's comments a while back that the Sinclair didn't sell well. I think it's a versatile shape and is effective at being sport-coat like enough but without being prone to the "why are you so dressed up?" comments. I have seen big brands selling 'chore blazers' and would have expected more success from Epaulet's much nicer version. Anyway, I'm glad it remains an option on the MTO.

Hey guys, it really is the last call for the Tote Bags. Picking them up and bringing them to the dye house around 11:30AM PST.

If the item is still online, then you can still order.

Four quick notes:

1) Preorder price on this is $95. Any stock items will be $135, so it's a great savings.

2) We cut all of this deadstock 21oz Sashiko. If there's a mill where I can buy more of it, then I can't find it. Pretty sure that this is the only heavyweight selvedge sashiko cloth that we're going to be able to use

3) Any items not claimed by preorder will be made in Azure, Shadow Ink, and Natural. If you want one of the other colors (Army, Magenta Mink, Merlot) then you have to preorder it

4) If you order a Natural bag, we'll actually be able to ship it tomorrow! The balance will go out next week.

@Epaulet The link below was 20 days ago and I did as I was asked.

Additonally, I emailed all the email CS addresses that were recommeded upthread all to no response.

I have emailed and PM'd and acted in good faith. This is after waiting for a doyle to get corrected after a year. Can you either send me my pants or my money back?

I'm not new to MTO but I'm fed up with the lack of CS.

Hello good morning @Epaulet. I hate to trouble you via StyleForum. I've tried to reach out to your company via FB messenger and via several e-mails. This is in regards to the second pair of Hertling pants ordered back in May. I would be very grateful if you can provide me with an update to order 47047. I'm still waiting for delivery.

Ah I'm really sorry.. totally my fault on that. I saw your PM come through, but if I check it on my phone and don't make a note at the time, then it goes down the bottom of the list, and I lost track of it. We shipped out your pants today and I included a free gift for the mixup.

@NYBootman after long last, there's about 50 trousers shipping direct from Hertling today. A huge thanks to everyone for bearing with us on that. I'll check with them and email you back to see where your specific pair is. I see that we were able to ship you one piece on the order already.

We've got a special offer with Southwick going live tomorrow... the best freaking corduroy you've ever worn, available in Sportcoats, Suits, and Trousers. We'll have great pricing on it and delivery around mid-January.

Gang - noting the upcoming Epaulet - American Trench convergence/show, thought I'd toss in the thread ring how another Philly collab - the patchwork Doyles - led me to contact the Hamid Holloman operation. I pitched some functional repairs on canoe shorts hanging w/in an inch of their lives, and he sent back some real kraftwerk.

I really appreciate how these introductions can create spur conversations, and only comes from seekers and obsessives like Epaulet.
