Long Sleeve Tubular Knit Tee Sample

Okay, I know that this solid t-shirt pic isn't going to set the world on fire, but I'm pretty freaking excited about it. This is made in LA, out of comfortable thick jersey, the dye treatment is punchy and consistent, and the sizing is PERFECT. And it's a tubular knit piece with no side seams.

For such a simple garment, it's surprisingly difficult to get all of those details right. We're all ready to go, so expect to see our first t-shirts released in August! I'll post up some color options later this week to get feedback on what we should do. I'm thinking 2 colors for our very first release. Pricing is going to be $35 for short sleeve, $45 for long sleeve, and they'll be a 15% off code for launch.

And... am I insane, or would it be dope to do some washed out fluorescent tones (no graphics) like this?

Still on track, I think we'll be able to get them done right after this Silk Matka and Linen batch comes through fully

Rivet Chino Shorts

Hey guys! The shorts came in and they are freaking awesome. Our factory produced some extras of each fabric, and I've got them online now. You can order your typical Rivet Chino size, and the leg diameter should work for every Rivet customer and the majority of Wilhelm/Rudy customers. The bottom has a simple stitched hem, so it's easy to have them hemmed a bit shorter if you want.

The first five are made of "NYCO," a military-spec combination of 50% nylon and 50% cotton. It's a technical lightweight cloth that's comfortable, strong, water-resistant (for those Summertime showers), and perfect to wear right now. The last short is a cotton-ripstop digital camo that's also light and perfect for warmer days. We won't have restocks, so grab a pair now if need some new shorts in your life!

Somewhat tangential, but Hertling's masks are really great. I personally have comfort issues w/ the ones that loop around my ears and I often run into issues w/ fogging up my glasses. The pleated ones that tie around your head that Hertling has are far and away the most comfortable ones I've found and they form a really tight seal as well.
I like their masks too. I think of the 4 or 5 different types I have tried they are probably the best and featured with the string ties, nose stay, and laundry and carry bags that come with it.

Eva,

I am starting the hunt for quality dress belts. I purchased a pair of amazing CXL belts from you when you were doing an in-house line, but now that has ended, where do you recommend first looking?

Pretty psyched with today’s mail. The middle shirt is cut to try to replicate the boxy cut of the Gitman camp shirts:

Eva, I have one request, which is that there be an indication somewhere when shipments partially fulfill an order. The shipment confirmation lists the full order and nothing on or in the package marks it as 1 of 2.

Thanks!

Edit: I love all of these fabrics, but the Albini linen is amazing!

Ah yeah, I miss our belt collection.. we should really consider bringing that back. I'd say to check out Trafalgar belts... they used to do private label for Saks and I always found them fairly priced and well made.

Super good... this whole fit is awesome!

Thank you so much, these came out beautiful! And yes, you're definitely right. At this point, with merchandise coming in so scattershot, I'm just kind of shipping things as they arrive. But you're right, we typically fill just the pieces that have actually come in. It'll get cleaned up for the Fall.

Is that fit contest still kicking off this week?
Yup, it's posted now!

contest key image.jpg


Hope that everyone is healthy out there! Since we could all use a reason to get dressed up, we're thrilled to announce a new Epaulet fit contest. Our friends at Overt Skincare are going to both judge the contest and furnish the prizes. We're giving away over $400 of merchandise to the winners!!

Here's how it works:

1) The contest will run from today (7/28) through Tuesday, August 4th

2) Post your pics IN THE DEDICATED CONTEST THREAD. You can post a maximum of one picture per day. And it's totally fine to post up stuff that you recently posted here (like @suuteebird 's amazing linen doyle pic)

3) All photos must feature at least one piece of Epaulet-branded clothing or footwear

4) All photos should be fairly recent. It's okay if the Epaulet items were purchased a while ago, but the spirit of the contest is to show how we're dressing in these crazy COVID times. So it's okay to pose this week in trousers from 2013, but not to post a photo from 2013.

5) Rory from Overt will select the winners on Wednesday August 5th. The prizes are as follows below. First and Second place will be chosen on the merits of the fits and photo skills. He'll also choose a winner via a random drawing. So that way, every SF member that enters has a chance of winning!

FIRST PLACE: A full set of five Overt skincare serums (worth $225)

SECOND PLACE: A duo of two Overt skincare serums (worth $95)

RANDOM WINNER: A duo of two Overt skincare serums (worth $95)

Can't wait to see what you guys submit. Maximize your chances by posting a photo every day!

HOODIE COLORWAY OPINIONS

Hey guys,

This is kind of last minute, but our Prepare-For-Dye hoodies are scheduled to finish tomorrow. I'm thinking to get them dyed with a quickness, and we can launch as soon as the end of next week.

I'm thinking that we can do two colors and maybe one crazy dye effect. Here's a few dye samples that caught my eye.. would love to know what you think of it. I'd love to hear your top three favorites, and feel free to post any other thoughts...

Here's the white base garment...

And now... four solid colors that I liked....

And three wash effects that I dug...

I like the olive and pacific blue. I own so much blue and green though. That cosmic has me thinking a bronze/copper hoodie would be cool.
