What are spring summer options looking like for Doyles? Jonesing for some sort of natural linen.

Hi Eva,

Can you please reply to my return authorization request - I have tried to get a response via both facebook and email, followed up, and have yet to receive a response and it's been a week. I don't appreciate how quickly you respond when looking to make a sale, but then ghost when there's an issue with the order or return requests which has happened more than once...

I hope this is not the norm because I just found the brand and am interested in Doyle jackets for my newer and more casual wardrobe. With the NYC store closed, my only option like many is online purchase (and return) only.

thanks for writing, my fault on that. You were intending to send that piece back when you placed the order, so I thought we had already discussed the return. No worries, I shot a message back to you on

no worries, we’ve essentially been online only since 2017. Logistics went a bit haywire for a good part of 2020, but we’re getting back up to speed. Feel free to message us anytime if we can help with sizing and styling!

Those tie dye sweatpants look really good and I am not really a sweatpants person. Are you still producing those?
The crystal wash ones were only made via preorder, I didn't do open stock on them. But we've definitely got these rad camo one available. You can still get 15% off with code abbot15



And LOL believe me, I think the pandemic has turned many of us into sweatpants people. I'm officially one too.

I'm working on a little something right now. The fabric on the top is a cotton-linen mix from Kaihara. It's a GORGEOUS fabric that's about half the price of pure linen and wrinkles less.

I'm thinking that we can run it as a preorder project for a few reasons:

1) We can sell is natural or we can dye it. I can offer a few rad colors to choose from

2) Cotton-linen is notorious for shrinkage. If we make as a batch, I can adjust the pattern and account for that. So the final garments are correctly sized post-wash.

3) We're doing great with t-shirts, especially in brighter colors. That allows me to get dye minimums with a mix of garments. So we can offer this cotton-linen in bolder colors like amethyst and sapphire... and even if we just sell a few pants or jackets, I can build out the dye lots with tees and hit our numbers.

4) With a group buy concept like this, we can offer the pieces at a really competitive price. Will be far less expensive than pure linen, and quite a bit less expensive than sashiko.

5) I'll still have a good stock of pure linens to offer via custom. We'll present Doyles, Sinclairs, Rivets, Wilhelms, and Field Jackets in that. Probably end of April.

I also had the same experience. I ended up just returning the item without an authorization after weeks of no response.

On one hand of course I would appreciate better service @Epaulet. On the other, it seems like you're working on it and your clothes are amazing. In the meantime, IDK, maybe consider including return instructions in every order and temporarily not requiring return authorization to avoid the catch-22 on needing one that will never be given (in time) situation, which you seem to be putting customers in now?

I am considering a custom Thedi and in my research I saw that Epaulet ran a model about 5 or more years ago. Does anyone with that jacket want to share their opinion on the workmanship, leather quality, etc after 5+ years of use?

Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure Thedi could repeat the quality and features of that ca. 2015 Epaulet x Thedi bomber without paying through the nose. Sold mine last year in NWT condition (so can't comment on wear, also it was becoming that "don't touch, don't even point at it" piece of kit) and kicked a lot of Thedi history buffs out of defilade.
