    The debate is over...

    I have had some report with Mike and I love his sense of customer service. I still have yet to purchase anything from him as I am always nervous with new brands. THANK YOU for posting the fit pic as you and I are almost the same size and I have wanted lend my moolah over to Mike as much as I try spread the good word. That pretty much sealed the deal for me and I can't wait to make my first purchase from him! The shirt looks great on you btw. I saw it a couple of days ago and I almost bought it too!

    Thanks, guys. The shirt fabric really is nice too, hard to describe but Mike's hi-res pics show it off really well.

    Glad I could help and we do have similar measurements. That was my problem, the lack of forum members posting fit pics for reference so I thought that others could benefit from them and happy it did.

    Fit looks good, tonio.

    To all those who've been on the fence about these shirts, keep in mind that Mike has a great 14-day return policy.

    Alright, closed the shop, wheeled out my ghetto photo setup, and took a few shots of the new arrivals. They are 100% Pima cotton (UK import) and available in sizes Small through XLarge. I'll have them on our site tomorrow, but feel free to PM me if you want to order one directly before then. May I present:

    Navy/Burgundy Stripe: $130
    Spread Collar, Plastic pearlized buttons
    This one came out really awesome. Works as a casual shirt or a dress shirt. Looks fantastic with a navy blazer.

    ^^ Hmm, I'm looking forward to the boot unveiling. Also, Mike, I received the burgundy oxford in the mail as well and again, couldn't be happier as this one is a beauty too. I offer more fit pics (with fresh wrinkles and yes it is paired with a new Gilt purchase from a recent sale [​IMG] ) and a fabric close up below. Great product.

    Business?

    Yeah man, size small. Though if you're looking for this one in particular, I believe I snagged the last one.

    Kopping machineeee... which Acnes are those?

    Also, stop posting fit pics. You're creating more competition for the smalls.

    Haha, just downsizing and re-shuffling the closet so my net additon stays zero [​IMG]

    Acne Pop Chino's Sz 31x32. These are fan-friggin'-tastic, but I think I may have needed a size smaller ,but Gilt was sold out of the size 30's by the time I got into the sale. Still undecided on whether I keep them. I really dig them and am wondering if a tailor could take these in a tad in the waist and seat without compromising the fit in the top block.

    EDIT: Regarding the fit pics, I guess that's true lol, I think I've done my part now. No more fit pics for a while.

    Nice pics tonio028! I got my burgundy Epaulet oxford shirt last week and was very pleased with the fit. Length was perfect for tucket and untucked, slim fit, tapered waist and nice feel to the fabric.

    For those looking for the burgundy shirt in small, I ordered both the Medium and Small. The medium fit better and I returned the small, according to Fedex it reach the store yesterday. Be quick, I'm sure the small will disappear fast.

    Thanks again Tonio! I'm really glad that you dig the oxford.

    And yes, I received mttlee's return today, so there is another Burg oxford in Small up for grabs. I'll put it online tonight, but feel free to PM me before then if you want to jump on it.

    Hey everyone, I'm thrilled to announce the launch of our Thorogood for Epaulet Horsehide work boot. We're scheduled to receive these by 9/15 and I've placed them on my website for preorder. They came out wonderfully, and will be a perfect boot for this Fall - and several Fall's after that. They'll be a great match to our upcoming Style Forum flannel shirt too. The boots are $195, including shipping in the US. Here's the link to more info and huge detail in our shop. I've pasted all of the text and images below too. If you have any questions at all, please drop me a line. http://www.epauletshop.com/servlet/t...rsehide/Detail **************************** [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Meticulously crafted in the USA, this rugged boot combines the classic lines and iron-clad durability of a true workboot with a rich brown horsehide upper, "light" colored welt, and black rubber VibramÂ[​IMG] wedge sole. Living in Brooklyn, we wanted a work boot that's a bit more refined than usual and jived with the style of our menswear. Of course it has to still be long-wearing and tough as hell. And made in the United States. So we've partnered with Weinbrenner (manufacturer of the Thorogood brand) to create this special edition of 72 units - all of which are exclusive to Epaulet. This boot will age beautifully over time and last for years. Its rich horsehide exterior will develop a unique patina that gets better the more you wear it. Shipping within the United States is included. SIZING The boot is available in Medium ("D") width only. As with most workboots, it's generously cut to allow for layered socks. We recommend that you order one half size down from your regular shoe size for a proper fit (i.e. if you typically wear a size 10, order a size 9.5 in this boot). If you're familiar with workboots from Red Wing and the like, you can expect a similar fit from these. SPECIFICATIONS: Genuine Horsehide Upper Our custom Thorogood for Epaulet boot is crafted in handsome and durable dark brown horsehide leather. This full-grain horsehide (taken only from the top portion of the hide) is smooth, strong, and naturally water-resistant. It's a bit tough at first, but will eventually soften into one of the most comfortable materials you have ever worn. Compared to cow hide and calfskin, horsehide has a rich character and slightly irregular finish (darker in some areas, lighter in others) that ages beautifully and develops a signature patina. Each hide is vegetable tanned for an oily finish, and a gorgeous deep color. In order to preserve its natural character, this full-grain hide has not been buffed or corrected - so your boots may have small scratches or other imperfections. Don't sweat it, you'll soon add plenty of wear and nicks on your own. The horsehide can take whatever you can dish out. It's already very water-resistant, but a little bit of waterproofing wax or mink oil will further seal it against snow and rain. Goodyear Storm Welt & VibramÂ[​IMG] Wedge Sole The Goodyear welt is a method of attaching the sole of a shoe to the upper. Charles Goodyear Jr. introduced a machine to mechanize this step, and the process is his namesake. The Storm Welt, is a strip of leather sewn onto the interface between the upper and the sole. Dual lines of stitching attach the welt to both the top and bottom of the boot, increasing water resistance and ensuring that the sole is securely attached. The rubber VibramÂ[​IMG] Wedge Sole is comfortable, long-lasting, and provides excellent grip in sun, rain, sleet, snow or whatever else is out there. The Goodyear Storm Welt will allow you to easily and inexpensively replace the sole once it has been worn out (which will take a quite a while). Two-Part Shock Absorption Insole Each boot contains a soft gel insole (also made in the USA) with pads at the heel and ball of the foot. This insole is removable and washable. Beneath the insole is a permanently affixed PoronÂ[​IMG] urethane strip which acts as another layer of cushioning and draws water vapor and perspiration away from the foot. With these two in place, this boot is hysterically comfortable to wear. About Weinbrenner Since 1892, Weinbrenner Shoe Company (manufacturer of the Thorogood brand) has been a leading manufacturer and pioneering force in the American footwear industry, initiating many of the significant safety and job-fitted design elements that are common today. Originally founded in Milwaukee, and now located in Merrill, Wisconsin, Thorogood footwear is the most trusted brand in the uniform and work industry. They manufacture boots for police, firemen, postal works, the NYFD - you name it. As an employee-owned company, Weinbrenner craftsmen work hard to provide hardworking men and women with the best, most comfortable boots and shoes around. Price: $195. Available for pre-order now. They'll ship by 9/15 http://www.epauletshop.com/servlet/t...rsehide/Detail

    Those boots look amazing for the price. A front profile picture would be good so as to show the shape and profile of the toe box. Looks like an awesome product though man.

    I'm very interested in those boots, they look amazing at that price. What is the insole in them like?

    Also, with regards to sizing, since these are preorders would they be returnable if the fit wasn't right? My only concern is that I've never had a pair of Thorogood boots on my feet so I have no concept of how the fit is, also don't know where to try them at unfortunately.

    Hey guys, thanks for the feedback, and thanks to everyone who's pre-ordered so far. I haven't had a chance to get my lights setup in the past few days, but I'll try to do a new round of photos which show the boot off from every angle today. The boots are absolutely returnable. I'm taking preorders just to determine the size breakdown of my first stock order. Here in the store, I sell a lot of 11's and 12's. I've never had a really big selling men's shoe through my website, so I'm not sure whether my online customers need the same sizes or skew smaller. I don't want to get a bunch of big sizes for the first delivery and then find out that most guys need 8.5's and 9's. But once you receive the boots, you can send them back for a refund or exchange within 14 days. No worries there. Once I get the boots in stock, I'll be happy to provide exact sole and insole measurements. If you live near a place that sells the standard Red Wing moc-toe workboots, you can also try on a pair of those to get your size. I'd say that these fit pretty much one-to-one with them. They're also similar to the Alden Barrie or Tru-Balance last. Almost every customer sizes down a half size.

    I just received my burgandy oxford and the fit/construction/material is really great for the price. It's probably my favorite shirt now. If anyone is on the wall on these shirts, do yourself a favor and pick one up.
