Hey guys!

We're running a great preorder project for our in-house Sportcoats and Chinos. I'll post the full info below, but here's a quick summary:

1) We're offering suit separates (sportcoat & pant) in garment-dyed 8oz Japanese cotton canvas.
2) It's a preorder that closes on Sunday, March 27th. Delivery will be around the end of April, beginning of May.
3) You can order any size from 36 to 48 in jackets and 28 to 40 in chinos.
4) The chinos are available in two fits: Rivet Chinos (slim, athletic shape) and Wilhelm Chinos (more room in thigh and seat for bigger legs)
5) We have a total of nine color options. You can mix and match as you like.
6) Basic colors are $180 for the jacket and $115 for the pant, so the entire suit is under $300. There's a small upcharge for neon and tiedye camo.
7) These garments are soft, comfortable, broken in, pre-shrunk, and entirely machine washable.
8) You can order these pieces as total separates (ex. buy only a pant or only a sportcoat).
9) If you're new to our garments, then please feel free to email custom[at]epauletbrand.com for personalized sizing advice.


Okay! On to the official spiel....

"Cali Canvas" is what we all need right now.

With the lines blurred between keeping casual and dressing up -- between WFH and back to the office -- it's difficult to know to dress in these days of lifted restrictions and a proper return to normalcy.

Keeping this in mind, we endeavored to design the perfect hybrid suit. Our base fabric is a 100% cotton, four-season 8oz canvas from Japan. This white cloth is made up into garments and then plunged into a five-step dye bath and silicone rinse. The resulting pieces have a deep and vibrant color and a remarkably soft hand. They're preshrunk, color fast, and entirely machine washable. With our preorder pricing, both pieces are about $300. It's an incredible value for high quality, made in the USA garments. We have enough cloth on hand to make approximately 200 garments.

As a suit, our Cali Canvas wears beautifully. It's smart and tailored, but still soft and laid back. It works with dress shirts and shoes OR tees and sneakers. It can be worn to a biz-caz office or a weekend outing. The cloth has a vintage feel and a slightly wrinkled broken-in character that makes it effortless to wear.

And of course, this works brilliantly as separates! You can order any mix of jackets and chinos through this preorder project. You can even use it as an opportunity to simply stock up on chinos, as our $115 price is one of the lowest that we've ever offered.

Here's some pics of the fabric itself. Our dye process makes it wonderfully soft and broken in. The color pictured is gunmetal...
