Can I prepay for one of the 34’s so I don’t miss out when they drop?
@Duke Silver absolutely, I'll hit you up with an invoice later today.. thank you!

Is it hard to move the Wilhelm's in smaller sizes? I wear a 31 and wondered if you were bringing in anything in that size.
Yeah it's really difficult. I'm down to the very last pairs of Wilhelms in our stock, and they're nearly all 32s. Guys with bigger legs tend to need the larger sizes, so all of our new production is heavily skewed towards that.

Is the Cramerton the one from way, way back (Orvis) or the Gayley & Lord version?
Both of those fabrics came from Galey & Lord actually, but the Orvis stuff was an exclusive heavier weight. These are the same four-season Cramertons that we were running from 2016 to 2018. Just two new colors.

Damn, well if there is a way to get the mushroom or coffee in a 31 let me know!

^ Best thing I've seen all week! I'm gonna order a pair of those coffee color Wilhelms in 36 when they drop. Hopefully they get the same Thank You card treatment.

Not if I beat you to the checkout!
Thanks guys! If anyone wants to pre-order the Coffee Wilhelms, then I can absolutely sell them. They're the same price as the Rivets.. and will have the same 15% offer

Is Josie a fan of the Elephant and Piggie book series or just a coincidence that she draws pigs that way?
Hmm no I haven't seen that, but I'll check it out. She'd probably dig it

I can't believe we haven't seen Epaulet selling a sashiko face mask yet...
Oh thanks for bringing that up. I was talking about it last week, but I think we've decided to pass on it for the moment. The main reasons are:

1) Our LA staff is presently sewing at home. This is an okay scenario for full garments (like the Doyles and Sinclairs that we have in work), but it's really lousy for mass production... like what we'd need for facemasks. In order to sew the masks, I'd have to have the staff out of their homes and back at the factory. I don't want to ask them to do that if we can continue to pay them and get them work at home.

2) We did a prototype and it's *okay*. These masks were heavy and not that great on fit. I don't have the optimal materials to make it really work. I really don't want to sell something that I don't feel is actually effective.

3) Cloth masks are better than nothing, but you really need the proper N95 level filter to truly protect against breathing in the virus. Right now there's a boom in cloth masks and a shortage of N95s but you can bet that medical-grade manufacturers are working like hell on that. I think and I hope that N95's will be widely available to anyone who wants one in the next 4-6 weeks. I'd certainly trade the coolest cloth mask on earth for a boring and pedestrian medical-grade one that really works.

If anyone has links to a mask that they like, then please feel free to post them on here though!

@Epaulet - I sent you an email. If you send me an invoice for a pair of those coffee Wilhelms in size 36, I'll pay that now.

That is 100% the pig (Piggie) from Mo William's Elephant and Piggie series. If you don't already have these books, get a few. They're great.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
