    What're the length measurements on these shirts? Also, ever plan on adding chest pockets to them? Thanks

    ^I think Epaulet is shut down/on vacation for a couple weeks.

    BTW, congrats to the shop on a little mention in today's Washington Post Express. They highlighted Mark McNairy's shoes in an (actually not bad) prep style spread and mentioned Epaulet as the retailer. Pretty much lifted from the NYT piece, but still nice.

    I'm out here at Cranes taking pictures of the new luggage line from Filson. My new short sleeve woodblock shirt from Mike is awesome.

    I sent a pm to Mike letting him know I wanted one and asked if he could hold a medium til I got home from a recent roadtrip. He replied and said sure no problem. Well I called him a few days later and we got to talking. During our conversation he told me he held a medium and a large. It seems Mike did a little digging and checked out my WAYWN pics and correctly figured out a large was what I needed. Needless to say I'm very much impressed with not only the shirt but Mike's dedication to a potential customer. All I can say is well done Mike. Whenever I'm looking for a nice shirt your my go to first guy.

    I'll post pics later.

    Great looking items. Is there a chance you will (or can) get a pair of those McNairy Dirty Bucs in a size 9D? I'm looking to get a pair.

    Fit pic for my woodblock shirt. 5'9", 160 lbs., size 40R jacket, 31inch waist. The shirt is a size large and fits very well.

    Hey Mike,

    When is the next Small Batch run? Rocking my gingham seersucker shirt today and I'm looking forward to what you're putting out next.

    Also, are you expecting any new cufflinks any time soon? Thanks!

    Sorry man, I meant to add this to our online descriptions before I left. I'll hook up all the length and shoulder to shoulder measurements next week. And yes, our upcoming collaborative flannel shirt will have a left chest pocket.

    Thanks for posting this! The McNairy shoes are great, and we've gotten a lot of awesome press. Unfortunately, I don't have either of these shoes in stock (didn't order the dirty buck, saddle shoe is a Fall style), but any press is good press. We'll have the Navy and Brown saddles in mid-September if anyone's interested.

    Thanks so much for your order and kind words Karl! I'm so glad that you dig the shirt and that the Large worked. It was a pleasure speaking with you. Great pics too.

    Sorry, I didn't pick up the dirty bucks for Fall. Unfortunately, I can't special order just one unit. But I'll have two saddle shoes and an awesome blue suede chukka boot - all on that red brick sole.

    Our newest delivery is the Red Gingham, Blue Chambray, and Burgundy Oxford. We did them all to the "Styleforum specs" of a buttondown collar and trocas shell buttons. You can see them here:
    http://www.epauletshop.com/servlet/t...rts/Categories

    Our next delivery will the the collaborative Flannel shirts and a few other long-sleeves and French cuffs.

    And I just received some new cufflinks from Simon Carter. I'll get them up on the website next week.

    Yes, you might remember the old store - Ohio Knitting Mills. They carried deadstock US-made sweaters. I believe that he set up a booth at the Pop-Up Flea that Michael Williams (A Continuous Lean) organized. Really nice guy, and he did us a huge favor. Trying to set up a retail store in Brooklyn is a nightmare, and we were able to easily move into his nearly ready space.

    But yeah, if you're in the neighborhood, then please stop by! Drop me a line whenever you want to come, and I'll be sure to be there.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    Sorry, I have to get a minimum of 12 pairs on it. Given the lead time, we'd be looking at a November delivery.

    no worries, thanks for looking into it!

    an aside...do you take special orders? love your shirt's fit and would like a couple more...do you do this kind of thing?

    Thanks - I'm glad that you dig them! Well, with the shirts we also have to do a run of 10 pieces per style. But if there's something specific that you're looking for, please drop me an e-mail or just post it here. Chances are good that some other guys will like it too and we can put it into our next batch.

    Outside of that, we've got about 20-25 new shirts planned for the Fall - including some collaborative and special editions. They'll definitely be a lot to choose from!

    Hey Mike, I've been really interested in your shirts since I heard about your place from the forums and after trying to decide on how your shirts would fit (mainly concerned about the length) I finally got a hold of one in a size small. When you posted that blue sunwashed chambray shirt a little bit ago I thought it looked awesome but you didn't have any smalls. As luck would have it, another forum member had one that he thought was too snug so I took it off his hands. I got it today and WOW, count me impressed with the material, fit, collar roll, buttons, etc. Total package.

    The debate is over, the length works for me untucked for casual wear just as much as it does tucked. The fit is slim on my build (5'8", 150-155lbs.) and the back darting is icing on the cake to keep the back from billowing out. Overall a great slim fit shirt, without the shrunken look and overly restriveness that I would get with say BoO. You got a new customer here, and I'll definatey keep my eyes peeled on your new fall shipments. Great work! Fit pics soon...

    EDIT: Added [awful] pics below:

    No rolled sleeves

    Thanks so much for the kind words tonio028! I'm really glad that a Small made it your way - it fits you spot on. We appreciate the pics!

    Good lookin' out! Yes, we got that earlier in the week. We're a little backlogged after our Panamanian adventures, so I haven't had a chance to shoot them yet. I'll post a few pics tomorrow. Thanks man.
