    Photos. It's OK to take an off thread tangent for this.

    Well, I ordered the Western print belt because it's too good of a value to pass up. Searching through this thread, I see that most guys who have posted fit pics with this belt do not necessarily match the shoe color with it. Is that pretty normal for this sort of belt?

    But of course:

    And you can check it out here in all of it's Ebay glory. I believe that they have some other breeds available. It's just as insane in real life as it appears in photos. Chalk that one up to drunken shopping.



    Oh man! Try bringing them by a dry cleaner, they can often get that stuff out or at least minimize it as much as possible.


    Awesome, you're going to love it! I personally own that belt, and I'll generally pair it with any sort of brown shoes or boots. It doesn't have to be an exact match, but it looks good as a compliment to the shoes.

    New Stuff

    With the height of the summer, things are a little slower in the product launch department, but here's what we have in the pipeline for August:

    CARMINA ENORMO-DELIVERY
    Restocks of double monks and fitzgeralds, some new tough-ass Chromexcel styles, and belts are en-route as we speak. Lots of shell cordovan too. I have a delivery coming in today and another one scheduled for next week.

    Gitman Vintage Fall One
    We received three crazy/awesome shirts from Gitman Vintage - the pinup girl, a Peruvian heavy flannel with a Llama print, and a mighty fine multicolored pindot. We also have two very cute Gitman Vintage shirts for ladies.

    Brown Chrome-Tanned Briefcase
    You guys asked for it and we got it! That Fullum & Holt leather briefcase from Canada is now available in a gorgeous chrome-tanned thick brown cowhide. Similar to Chromexcel, just sourced from Canada rather than Horween.

    MkII Watches
    We have the last two units of their hardcore "LRRP" dive watch going live next week.

    Southwick for Michael Kuhle Delivery One (Deadstock)
    This is going to be pretty boss. I picked up some gonzo deadstock fabrics from Southwick at the close of last season and made them up into a very limited run of jackets. Most stock will be 38R, 40R, and 42R. A few Shetland Tweeds and Harris Tweeds. There's some great stuff to choose from, and the price is about 20% less than it would typically be. There's about 20 jackets total in this early delivery.

    Super-Thick Tweed Walt & Rudy Trousers
    As promised, our limited-run Tweed Trousers will go live at the end of August. We've got a good smattering of Walts available and we'll take orders for both Rudies AND custom matching Southwick Jackets. We should have enough fabric left to do another normal Walt cutting after that, but if you're in the market for a jacket or a Rudy, you might want to grab that when the go live around 8/25.

    That's about it for now. I'm sure that I'll be surprised by some other merchandise soon, and we'll throw it up as soon as it arrives.

    Well I missed out on the belts entirely, as I wear a 32. PM me if you have a size 34 belt in natural, brown, or western chromexel or british tan that you are looking to move.

    i remember this question being asked but dont recall if an answer was given: Are the french blue duck canvas rivets darker than the french blue 7 oz canvas, the way they appear to be when pictured on the website?

    Just received a nice pair of Slim Walt in wool - but do I need to wash them before I get them hemmed?

    Thank you sir! And no, you'll want to only dry clean the wool trousers.


    They're more similar in tone than the online photos make them. Better to compare the outdoor fit pics. The 10oz is a bit paler than the 7oz, but they're pretty close.


    Oh yes. I also bought a deadstock bottle of Gucci Envy (it's been discontinued for a while) once for like $150 while very drunk. I put it on and smell like a living embodiment of 2002. Drunk shopping and ebay are a dangerous mix.

    Those are some of my favorite pants of all time. If you all missed that fabric the first time around, do not miss it this time.

    Hey Mike,

    Matt mentioned last week that you guys would be getting a restock of the regiment twill trousers that you guys sell. Will this delivery be coming in any time this week?

    Thanks!

    Mike - Are these the charcoal herringbone rivets you had at the end of 2010? These were the first rivets I tried to order, but my size was sold out. I'll definitely need to get in on these this time. The wool rivets also sound like they are a must for fall. Any swatches available? :)

    Fall Preview: Eisenhower Jacket

    Hey guys,

    Just wanted to show this piece off. A new design for Fall '12, this is called the "Eisenhower" jacket.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    We wanted to create a very versatile and easy to wear bomber jacket. It has a very clean design with a point collar, throat latch, and open bottom. We trimmed out a bunch of details in soft calfskin leather as well. Has a blackwatch liner too with interior pockets.

    It's going to come in three varieties:

    1. Navy Melton Wool (pictured)
    2. Loro Piana Charcoal Wool Flannel (little more luxurious)
    3. Tobacco Goat Suede (will be so freaking nice it hurts)

    Made in the US of A. Should be here around late September.

    Haha, it does resemble the jacket that Walter White is always wearing around. Thankfully Epaulet doesn't sell those ugly Wallabees that WW for some reason has an obsession with.

    That jacket looks like it would be incredible in suede...

    Heisenberg says hello

    tobacco goat suede would be like the one jerry seinfeld wore in that one episode, minus the candy striped lining, of course.

    Haha, you're totally right! Maybe we should change the name....

    And I don't have the final pricing, but I'm thinking high 300's for Melton, high 500's for Loro Piana, and maybe close to $900 for the suede. We only made a few suede units, and it's absolutely gorgeous goat suede a la Purple Label.

    Last year we had a great business with Gant Rugger melton harringtons which were around $350. This will be a bit more, but with RADICALLY better materials, made in the states, and gorgeous leather accents. Better fit too. It really came out killer.
