My 2020 Doyle was longer and had a lot more space in the chest compared to my 2019 Doyle’s.

Yup, I gotcha!
Okay awesome, thank you for the photos. It's a bit hard to gauge the sleeve length with the cuffs unbuttoned, but it does look bigger.Thanks Eva and all, makes sense to me now. I'm unsure whether to keep / hot wash it or to send it back and get say, a 38. Eva, I'll start an email thread with you regardless.
For comparison, here's how my old 40 Doyle fits:

I don't know if hot washing it is going to make it fit right, and I don't want to void the return policy by doing so. I could use an opinion on how much it's going to shrink before I do.
I'm not what I'd call fashionable (note cargo pants and tie dye, heh) but I really like Epaulet and it's helping me find a sense of style slowly but surely. So thanks. As an East Coast outdoorsman, I really like my woolrich donegal tweed! The tweet jacket fits good so if I have to trade the mink doyle in for a smaller size, know that the donegal tweed fits great too, so I'll want to try and match that - not sure which spec those were manufactured to. I know it's a slightly different cut in a sinclair.
Yup, that makes sense, the pre-2020 product was always a bit smaller than it should have beenMy 2020 Doyle was longer and had a lot more space in the chest compared to my 2019 Doyle’s.
Thanks so much for the writeup, really glad to hear that you're so pleased with them!here to co-sign on the sweatpants. i marie kondo'd a very reliable pair (steven alan, if you're interested; ultimately too heavy and too slim but still i missed them) in an extremely shortsighted move before wearing sweatpants became the thing we're all doing all the time, and then held out against a new pair as, like, a gesture against everything the world became until ep launched its run last month and let me tell you: they own. i bought the grey ones because the tiedyed camos made me clutch my pearls and then two weeks later i bought the thunder dragon whatevers also because, like, they're sweatpants, they're gonna look like sweatpants no matter what so you might as well get weird with it. (i hope this does not come off as faint praise in any way.)
and they are, really, the best sweatpants i've ever owned. (other ep pieces that are actually the best of their breed that i have: the gats in ghost horsehide, the doyle in raisin sashiko, the suit i got married in.) all the stuff in eva's writeup is true: the fabric weight is exactly right at midheavy, the cut is relaxed without being sloppy (again, they're sweatpants, do with that what you will; what i will do with that is go to the grocery store and chase my kid around the playground and ideally not much more but i was not a sweatpants outside guy a month ago so who knows--the scale slides). when i put them on i feel like i'm being extra nice to myself.
Might as well chime in as I am wearing my gray sweatpants. I would describe them as great OG sweat pants. Comfortable and fit well.
One small nit is the drawstring which looks more like a white sneaker lace. I will eventually remove it. So no harm, no foul. For future versions, they would be better on the inside.
Oddly, my sweatpants came without a label. Again, not a big deal.
Yes, @dougie is entirely right, all of the tees and sweats going out right now have no branding whatsoever on the inside. We just bought care labels from our factory.. and got the larger "Eco Life" labels from the yarn supplier.oh gosh yeah i forgot to mention that no label thing, which i really love (i own and often use a seam ripper for cayce pollard reasons) but which i also expect is a product of the fairly expedited production i'm guessing these things went through and not necessarily an aesthetic choice.
sweatpants gotta have external drawstrings. they just gotta.
How about the Racing Green?Yup, I gotcha!
1) Me and Ming spent all of today organizing the second batch of dye runs. I'm taking them to the wash house in the morning and I expect to get it back in the middle of next week. So that's going to be:
* All of the Rivets, Doyles, and Kamigatas in Indigo, Black, Oxblood, Ultraviolet, Steel Moss, Gunmetal, Chestnut, and Mink
* Heavyweight t-shirts in every single one of those colors. We'll have between 8 and 24 units per color.
Oh yes my bad... all of the Racing Green too! And we'll have Racing Green t-shirts, which I'm pretty jazzed for.How about the Racing Green?
These are pictures of what I think is a poorly designed or ill-fitting internal drawcord.Agree with the internal drawstring. I have a pair of internal drawstring pants though that do this weird puffy thing where the button is because there is too much fabric, but the drawstring hugs me. Cuuld be too much waist material on those pair though. Could not size down more because of my thighs. Could also be where they placed the holes for the drawstrings.
My bottle green T from way back is still going strong. Loved the fit on that oneOh yes my bad... all of the Racing Green too! And we'll have Racing Green t-shirts, which I'm pretty jazzed for.
By the end of next week, we should be 100% shipped out on all Sashiko preorders except for Sinclairs.
I also just received an absolutely massive fabric delivery (over 1000 yards). It's been stuck at the port in Long Beach since 12/30. I'm going to get an assessment at the factory tomorrow, but I think it may be possible to do the long-awaited Sashiko Mac jacket project. I want to keep the timeline realistic, but if we could get samples by the end of the month and go live with it early feb, I could ship by mid-March. Should be possible, as we've got the cloth now and the factory is in a better place with staffing. I'll keep you guys posted.
I'm in the same boat. I'm sure it's busy in the new year and will patiently wait probably not as drastic as your circumstances but hopefully they'll get to us.@Epaulet I’ve been trying to contact you by email for months, and via styleforum direct message / conversation over the last week, about my unfulfilled Southwick suit order from Feb 2020. I’ve had zero communication or response from you - please can you get back to me as soon as possible.
