    I have a bottle on my kitchen counter. I still need to buy the rest of the ingredients for a killer Manhattan.

    On an Epaulet note, I checked with Matt and confirmed the chest on the polos is measuring 1" larger than the chart. Every other measurement is as on the chart. Hope this helps for those contemplating.

    Well, it's yes and on on the polo sizing.

    It was a tough call to say where the chest seam truly lies. It's about 18.5 - 19" on the small IF the sleeves are laying down in a natural way. If you pick them up and lay them out flat it's closer to 20", or maybe even a bit larger, which I thought would be misleading, as it doesn't really denote how the polo fits. If you're a true 40R, you're going to find the Small too tight despite the actual chest measurement at the physical ends.

    Polos and sweaters are difficult to judge by measurements alone because, as knits, they don't necessarily lay straight for measurement and they can stretch a bit. We've had quite a few guys try these on, and I'd still recommend that you stick with the same sizing advice if you want a slim fit like the one Dylan has. Dylan comfortably wears a Medium Epaulet and a Medium Gitman/Ashland and he's wearing a Small polo. The medium didn't look bad on him, it just didn't look as fitted.

    I wear about a 41-42R in jackets, and I take a Medium in the polo. I could probably take a large as well, but rocking tight short sleeve polos all year long is my jam.

    I grabbed a Medium Infrared for myself and I'm washing it as we speak. I'm going to try drying it on a hanger. I suspect that it won't pull or stretch out, and I'm hoping that hanger air drying really minimizes the wrinkles. I'll check back on it.

    Also, thank you for the feedback. I knew that the collar wouldn't be everyone's style, but I thought that it was very cool. I'm going to look into a buttondown collar for the Fall too.

    And regarding the pricing, I totally hear you. I've been working on developing a polo line for a little over a year now. There's plenty of possibilities out there - especially in Asia and South America.

    But, I had to think about what kind of polo shirt I really wanted. For a casual piece, there's plenty to choose from - ranging from $40 to just under a hundred. You've got J.Crew, Fred Perry, Lacoste, Ralph Lauren, etc. All of these shirts are totally fine, and I love wearing Fred Perry's. So the Epaulet polo didn't really need to live in that marketplace, it's well stocked with options already. What's difficult to find outside of Italy is a polo shirt that's "better" than those, with a nicer cloth and a more refined appearance. I actually wouldn't know anywhere in the US to buy something like that. And since I personally like polo's so much, I was actively on the hunt for them.

    When you guys receive our Luchino polo, I'm confident that you'll find it in another level altogether. The fabric is really fine. The cut is really spot on (with sizing down). It feels fantastic, and it has a dressed up, old school look that can be worn with the trousers and sportcoats that we make. It's pricey for a polo just like the Rivet Chino is pricey for a "khaki" pant. But, as always, I'll leave you guys to be the judge of it. I'm looking forward to hearing what you think after you receive them. Thanks!


    The clothes look great, but I'm totally distracted by the fine-ass-ness that is your credenza. That thing is awesome!


    Thank you sir! I'm confident that you're going to love those boots.


    Hmmm, honestly, I don't shoot much in the rain. And when I do, it's with the pro equipment that we use for the store which is pretty well rain sealed.

    But if you search around for a camera rain store at a big shop like Samys or Adorama, they should have a few things to choose from. I believe that they're pretty inexpensive too.

    You have F/Win LA?



    When you compare that to what private individuals pay for crap coverage here, its pretty much "free"

    Funny. That's what I drove in college until I somehow ended up in a wreck and totaled it (32 sutures in my skull)

    Bingo. My only summer splurge this year. Hopefully I don't do something foolish like lose them or break them!

    Yeah, Rob our F/W consists of mid 50 temperature range and 10 days of rain, 14 if we're lucky.

    I'm thinking of getting a Canon S100 as a new camera to put in my daily zip pouch. I would go through Amazon, but tempted to go through Best Buy and get their warranty since my current camera almost got dropped! I had it on an edge, and a frickin' bird scooped down and almost knocked it over.

    Agree, then disagree, then agree again. I loved living in Floral Park. I do miss it. Moses exemplifies ambivalence, indeed. Was at Jones Beach last week; still amazing, and his doing.

    BTW, that seersucker shirt is excellent.

    And I don't know why my response is with the quote, so I'm just letting it all hang out in the gray box.
