    I bought an Epaulet White Pinpoint Oxford shirt about a month ago and absolutely love the fit. It's a perfect fit for an athletic body, however, the shirt often comes untucked because of its pseudo short length. Do you sell any shirts that are cut a little longer?

    Just wanted to say "thanks" again to Mike, Adele, and Dillon for the awesome service I received last weekend. I came in to make a return on some shoes that didn't end up fitting like I had thought they would, and everyone was more than accommodating. I was super impressed with what Mike had planned for the upcoming months ... Expect big things from Epaulet soon! Definitely one of the best shops in NYC when it comes to product, service, and price.

    Oh man, we have a TON of sweaters coming in the Fall. For our in-house line, we'll have a full collection of superfine merino sweaters (v-necks, crewnecks, specialty pieces) which are all made in Italy. Prices will range from $130 to $250 and the quality is absolutely first rate.

    We're also working on a fitted yet very chunky knit cardigan - a little in the Inverallan vein - that will be made in Canada.

    .

    oh my god.

    epaulet is quickly becoming the greatest store in the world. can't WAIT for these sweaters. Everything ive gotten from epaulet (couple shirts, couple trousers) has gotten me compliments.

    More than willing to empty the bank account for this great store!

    More love for Epaulet, just received Smith jeans which were an exchange and Mike was unfailingly helpful with the trials of dealing with a customer 5,000 miles away.

    Haven't tried them on yet but I'll post my review in the EPs thread. I can say that the presentation of them alone and the personal touches had an office full of female PR professionals swooning in admiration.

    Thanks so much guys!

    And here's some swatches and previews of new things:

    In about 3 weeks, we'll have a delivery of Walt trousers in lightweight corduroy. Perfect for warmer days and the early Fall. There's two colors:

    [​IMG]
    Kelly Green

    [​IMG]
    Royal Blue

    Also, we're making 8 different sweaters in Italy, and I've got samples for two of the specialty items. Both of these are done in superfine merino wool, and the fit is right on.

    [​IMG]
    Brown/Charcoal Full button cardigan
    This buttons all the way up to the neck, has colored tipping on the bottom rib, and has subtle merino elbow patches.

    [​IMG]
    Hand overdyed striped crewneck
    The photo is a little lousy and doesn't do the colors justice at all. It's a navy and burgundy striped crewneck that's hand overdyed with a medium indigo wash. It's got these great dye variations at the neckline and shoulder seams. This is incredible in person, and will make for a really special piece.

    I'm already a fan of those two sweaters, especially the cardigan. Thanks for the preview, Mike!

    Hah!

    And the prices are good on this stuff. It's about $150 to $175 for the sweaters and $285 for the parka.

    Between Rugger and the Michael Bastian capsule, Gant freaking killed it for Fall '10.

    Hey I just noticed you are now selling leather jackets, I really like this one: http://www.epauletshop.com/servlet/t...Leather/Detail Ive been thinking about buying a leather jacket for a while but I want one in brown. I saw a picture of some guy wearing a chromexcel brown jacket that had this great patina on it and since then Ive been looking for something similar. Can you get this jacket in brown also? Also how thick is the leather? I mean is it really thick for motorcycle riding or is it more of a fashion leather jacket. Generally actual motorycle jackets are extremely thick for obvious reasons, Im more interested in a free flowing soft leather jacket which is why I figured a chromexcel one would be nice. Edit: Something similar in color to this is really what Im after: http://horween.files.wordpress.com/2.../dsc_00491.jpg This jacket is nice even if they do obnoxiously namedrop Brad Pitt, anyways irrelevant to this post http://www.jcrew.com/AST/Browse/Mens...taff/27834.jsp

    Thanks! Unfortunately, this is the one length that we currently offer. Our customers vary greatly in height, so it's tough to get the right length for everybody, and this is what we settled on. I generally find Gitman Vintage shirts to be longer though, and we'll have those out the wazoo for Fall '10. Trust you me.

    Awe yes. I was totally inspired by the Band of Outsiders $550 chino - and considered what we could do for a little over half that price. We're going to shoot for a $285 to $325 trouser which will be absolutely f-ing mindblowing. Cashmere blends, horn buttons, bells and whistles all around.

    For the Schott jacket, it's only made in Black. It's definitely more of a casual jacket, although I do know guys who ride bikes around the city with it. This one is lighter, softer, and has an excellent fit. I think that it's a really versatile and extremely well made piece. In terms of a brown jacket, we'll have two strong options: 1. The Garbstore x Lewis Leathers Flying Dominator. [​IMG] This is insane. You can read about it at the link below. We'll get it in early Sept. http://blackandtannedny.wordpress.co...ing-dominator/ 2. An Epaulet collab piece that's in development for Oct-Nov launch. We're still sampling, so I don't want to promise something that I can't deliver. But if we can pull it off, I can tell you that it will be one of the greatest leather jackets available anywhere. Seriously. And it will be brown.

    Just wait. I saw the leather this may possibly be made of and heard how it ages. If it does come through, you've got yourself a leather jacket for a lifetime that is going to show serious character in a short time.

    Yea Im sure its nice but I cant see myself waiting several months for what might be without a bit of info. Aero pretty much makes what Im after although it wont have the Epaulet fit. 'so it goes' as Vonnegut might say. Aero jackets take a while to make though as they are made literally for your measurements.

    Can you say if the leather jacket will have zippers on the sleeve like on the Cafe Racer? Or if the jackets will have pockets on the front? Im after basically a no zipper on the sleeve jacket with a clean front look like the Cafe Racer and some internal pockets. Basically a 'map pocket' and whats known as a gun pocket. I really just want a classy fitted jacket and am trying to stay away from a recaptured 50's Brando look
