Just ordered the olives--may I ask what boots are these?
assume they are the carmina chelseas. definitely stood out to me as well. super cool, but I'm definitely waiting for a pair of the brown leather wingtips (and the double monks in snuff suede also sound awesome).
I highly doubt those are them. The Carvers are more elongated.
probably rm williams
the Point Collar Charcoal Pindot Chambray shirt looks pretty god damn sweet.
I got the large Epaulet cozumel jacquard shirt and after putting it on real quick, I think the large size will work fine for me with the more casual shirts. The only thing that is a bit too big for me is the neck, where I'm usually a 15.5 or 16 (Epaulet large is 16.5). The point collar also looks kind of big, but probably OK. The torso (my chest size is 39") looks fairly fitted with minimal billowing at the waist, but I don't feel any of the tightness like I felt with the medium shirt. I'm thinking it'll fit better after a wash, so I'm definitely happy with it.
ditto on the chino restock colorways. craving a racing green & light blue...
Yes, we these are still in work. We're also getting a french blue brushed cotton trouser, probably around the end of next week
Yes, I think that everyone was fixed on that Tanker boot - I'll work to get a preorder going for it this week.
Thank you sir! Enjoy them!
Off hand, our first restock is going to be mostly things we've run before: khaki canvas, gunmetal, navy. We're running some thicker duck canvas as well. I don't believe that we have any colors exactly duplicated between the chinos and the walt fabrics, but they'll be quite a few khaki tones to choose from.
It's different in hand and drape. This sanded canvas comes from the UK, it's softer, and it's a bit dressier. The chinos use US-made canvas which is tougher and has a more pronounced canvas weave structure when you look at it.
The walt canvas trousers are more easily dressed up than the canvas rivet chinos - although I've seen plenty of guys wear the chinos with sportcoats.
Any of these three colors would look ace with a Navy sportcoat. I think that the Olive sanded canvas is actually my favorite of the three. I ordered it as an afterthought, but it's a really perfect neutral tone that would easily match a ton of other items.
And for the racing green trousers, the black gingham suggestion is perfectly on point. For shirts, they'll jive well with whites, pale pinks, tans, and even some reds - especially if the red is in a mixed pattern. For footwear, they'll look great with anything brown or white. Think about these with (1) navy blazer, gingham shirt, snuff suede shoes or (2) white oxford shirt and jack purcells.
Oh it definitely is. We'll have linen in Navy, Natural, Red, and Tangerine. The bolder colors will land in about 4-5 weeks.
Thank your sir, glad that it worked out for you!
Those are actually some old-school Mark McNairy chelsea boots that we carried back in Fall '09.
^Tangerine linen? I don't think the wife is going to be happy about this.
And it looks like my canvas Walts should be on their way today. Should have them in hand early next week then.
Received the EP x Staples olive chinos today. Man these pants are literally butter soft! Very nice!
Question for those of you who bought this: Will you cuff it or have it hemmed? I'm thinking I'd cuff it, but I'm wondering if there's some sort of consensus on whether to cuff or hem?
now if only the greys would go on sale
I always cuff, if you change your mind about it you can simply uncuff, but once you give em a cuffless hem, thats how they stay.
Just grabbed the Slate Gunchecks.
There's an EP x Staple chino in olive?
EDIT: Ah, I see. Posted a few days ago. Damn.
I'm probably in the minority here, but I do both. I get them hemmed to my regular length, and I cuff them. When worn with the cuff, they're essentially highwater trousers..which is how I wear my chinos. I'm expecting my navy service pants today.
I'm curious to see how much different that french blue will look. I'm hoping bright chinos will come in soon so I can style in the office for spring and summer!
