    ^^ Thanks Matt!
    And we'll have fit pics for both of these shirts tomorrow. Just wanted to give you guys first crack at them as they're brand new and available in every size. The "Sunset Madras" is the same cloth as the new Spring '12 Madras that we're running. It's beautiful.

    Yup, they left Italy this week. If all goes well with customs, then we'll have them on-hand by next weekend. I'll keep you guys posted.

    I don't believe that we have any more Caramel in-bound for the next few deliveries, but we'll have a freaking ton of chinos for the next run. The new Duck Canvas color is "Leaf," which is a really gorgeous green. Less bold than the racing green that we did.

    And we'll have a Walt Regiment Twill in "Golden Brown," which will hit that Caramel feeling. Both should be here by the end of the month.

    Very nice, we love this combo!


    The show was at Webster Hall. Thank god we got drinks beforehand as hitting the bar there is a total PITA.

    "Party Hard" is such a good tune. I'm an especially big fan of "You Will Remember Tonight" and "I Want to See You Go Wild" from his later albums too.

    Blaze trousers and the gingham shirt look super-fresh. I love that bold color combo.

    Dig those red socks too!



    Stanley pretty much nailed it. As a rule I'm generally conservative with ordering wholly new fabrics, so we do have certain items which hit a nerve and sell out quickly. But our Spring shirting line as a whole still has most sizes available in most fabrics, which is where it should be at this point in the season.

    For trousers and chinos, I changed around our production schedule a bit. It used to be that we got BIG shipments every 8-12 weeks. I'd cut 70 pairs of a single pant at once. The problem with this is that we're locked into a size scale. If 30's sell out, then too bad. If someone wants a Rudy in that fabric, then too bad. Our new setup is to do regular monthly deliveries. Certain colors and fabrics will come and go, but basic items are generally refreshed in all sizes and special orders - including Rudy trousers - can be easily accommodated.

    I hear you though. I never want our business to feel like a sneakerhead boutique, where nothing is ever in stock and it's all hype and artificial product shortages. They'll always be fast-selling things like Speckle Chambray's and Ravello Brixton boots, but I always endeavor to carry a well-targeted quantity of stock on each item.

    Very nice, hope that you had a great time!

    Very sharp! I dig the belt-less look too.

    If you're in the market for a new P&S camera, check out the Ricoh GR Digital IV. I love this camera. Having the Iphone 4S makes a lot of P&S cameras kind of pointless, as the Iphone takes such killer daytime shots. But the Ricoh has a special look that separates it from the pack, and it's really fun to use.


    Thanks for all of the feedback, and glad that most of your order worked out. Drop me a quick PM with your name. 36" on the Cramertons definitely sounds oversized from where it should be. We'll get something sorted for you on those.

    Thank you sir, enjoy them!

    Yes, we'll actually shoot these tomorrow on Dylan. We didn't have the right shoes to do it last week, but we'll hook up some natural light fit pics on these and a few other trousers that don't have them shortly.

    Thanks. Was trying to figure how the two differed in fit. I'm thinking a small would work for me then. How did the M Epaulet compare to the M BD at the waist?

    Thanks for the response, Mike, but I'm looking for the Desert Ducks. I have some Caramel Ducks, already! :slayer:

    medium bd is definitely more snug than medium epaulet. my m bd at the last button is 18.75" and for my m epaulet it's 19.75 (just measured for you) i have a little bit of a gut so i prefer epaulet's medium and now go L in BDs

    WvG xs bd is larger than xs epaulet in both the waist and the chest, so the brand comparison does not hold true across all sizes. if anyone wants more detailed measurements, send me a pm.

    Would you say the linen cutaway shirt shirts after a wash? With a L in gitman vintage fitting me spot on if not slightly fitted, I'm worried I would end up needing an XXL :(

    do take note that epaulet shirts are darted at the lower back, something that Gitman does not have

    ^that should work great for me, since the lower back on my gitman vintage oxfords juts out like a plastic bag in the wind...

    Great look. I really have to get some straightforward khaki Epaulet trousers.



    I have plenty of Madras. Sure I do.

    Also, I recall that a new batch of Carminas are due in sometime soon, with shadowy and oblique reference made to a saddle shell makeup, the intimation being that it will be of some particular interest to those of us given to such things. Any further details? When are you expecting the new models?

    Great fit on those. I've been sitting on the Cramertons for a while now as newer pant releases keep leapfrogging it. But I'd be upset if my size ever sold out. I've tried them on -- great fit and fabric. Perhaps it's time for me to commit.

    Question: I love the shirts. I normally buy Brooks Bros dress shirt in size 14.5 in their Extra Slim Fit and it fits perfectly. Would getting an Epaulet shirt in size S be too big?

    I would suggest the size XS.

    Woah, I just noticed this when I was curious to see what shoes you were going to pair up with those black canvas rivet chinos. There seems to be a link error in the description.

    My wallet is scared to death with the thought of ordering an Epaulet shirt. Judging by the measurements, it looks like none of the sizes will fit me very well - a Large is probably closest, but the neck is still about an inch too big, and if I sized down to a Medium it would definitely be too tight in all other areas. However, if I try one and it fits well then I will end up going broke replacing all my shirts with Epaulet, just like I did with my pants.

    I wear the BB extra slim shirts in 16" so I can't directly answer your question. But in terms of overall fit, the BB extra slim and Epaulet shirts are night and day. Epaulet shirts are much closer to the chest, much slimmer in the sleeves and, because of darting, less prone to bagging out in the back. Real care and attention have been paid to the fit.

    An S should work. I have 15.5 / M ESF shirts and they aren't that slim as I'm relatively fat, I can barely button up an M in Epaulet

    I'm surprised that you don't have any Epaulet shirts yet. I got 5 in Mediium before deciding that I'd trade a bit of slim-ness for a bit more comfort in a Large. Before I knew it I have 4 more shirts in Large (and probably more to come). For me, the neck is also about an inch too big in Large, but I find that it shrinks a bit if I run it though the dryer after first wash. I've also gone for casual shirts in Large so far, so a bit bigger collar isn't as big of a deal.

    Now get some Epaulet shirts already! :slayer:

    Welcome to the club...started out with a sale shirt to test the waters and haven't looked back.

    I also think I may try a shirt in a Large, as all of my Epaulet shirts are for casual wear, and the medium chest is pretty snug on some of them. Just worried the waist will be more billowy if I o go a size up. What say you Macktastic?
