    I want to reiterate how great of a guy Mike is. Despite being five fashion geeks in Manhattan during sale season, I think aside from socks the only purchases we made were from Mike. The Epaulet x Bailey's fedora rocks!


    We will be posting some in-depth coverage of his shop and upcoming buys later

    Just received my Alden suede chukkas and wanted to thank Mike publicly for his spot on customer service.
    Thank you sir - I'm really glad that they worked out! We're doing a special edition of those guys in Navy this Spring.

    Thank you - it was great meeting you guys too. I have to say, you were f-ing born to wear that Fedora. It was perfect.

    You can see some of our model fit pics on the hat detail pages: http://www.epauletshop.com/servlet/t...-Fedora/Detail http://www.epauletshop.com/servlet/t...-Fedora/Detail I've also got a bunch of pictures of the Styleforum crew in action at Patrick's KMW party. Including an ass-kicking card trick by Magician. I'll work up a post on them. It was an awesome night which led to an absolutely horrible morning after.

    Hey everyone,

    Just a heads-up, our shop and online store are closed until Feb 1st. Adele and I are doing an SF to LA circuit that's half-work and half-vacation. We're old school at the shop, so we typically close for a week in January and a week in August.

    Any online orders placed after Monday will ship on Feb 1st - as mentioned on the site. Can't wait to meet with our LA workshops next week. We've got a few goodies to work on:

    * new editions of the EP's Smith Jean
    * a new EP's Hoyt Jean that will be the best fitting large thigh jean in the history of man. I'm sick of not having any jean fit me the way that I want, so it's a personal mission.
    * Button-Fly military chinos
    * A few casual shirting styles
    * Awesome slim fit shorts

    And, of course, karaoke pain with Whodini and Joel K. from KZO.

    Here's a little preview - we're scheduled to get this around the second week of Feb. This horsehide was spec'd by Schott's Japanese team and has a fantastic fit. It's a classic 40's style that's made in the USA, and it will retail around $650. Production quantity was super tight, and we're getting 6 pieces. We'll actually be one of the only accounts in the US to have it. It's got a really nice shape that you don't see too often.

    Did I mention that this thing is stiff? Holy shit! You've got your work cut out in breaking this in. The good news is that you'll get the next 40 years to do it. I can't imagine this thing ever dying.

    Thunda thigh? Hey, just cause we've got big legs doesn't mean we're not sensitive guys too!

    Good question though. I've got to find a new basic indigo denim to replace the deadstock one that we're nearly out of. I'll see what Cone varieties I can get. I'll probably run the new pattern in Kurabo black too - it's got a great subtle finish and has been really popular.

    I've been a card-carrying member since the mid-90s. You aren't alone. Brands such as Flat Head are off limits for this reason.

    Hey guys,

    We've got a ton of good stuff landing in the next 2-3 weeks. For the moment, here's a little Spring '10 intro with our first two Gitman Vintage styles. The club collar oxford is a special makeup that we spec'd out.

    Be sure to check the measurements. Gitman patterns aren't that consistent, and both of these have a slightly different fit.

    Red Oxford with Club Collar: $150

    Brown Plaid with Buttondown Collar: $165
