Epaulet trainers in loden green. Size 10. No box, but have the cotton Epaulet shoe bag. $75+shipping.

Epaulet GAT in gray. Size 9.5. Box lid has torn corners. $75+shipping.
Did Eva ever say if Epaulet will bring these back at some point? I'm wishing I had purchased a pair of the high tops/full court pairs and don't know of any similar makes

Loden green trainers are sold. Grey GATs are still available.

If anyone has any additional info on the GATs, I would appreciate it since some potential buyers have asked. I know they are a very early model based on the sole. Anyone remember any leather or manufacturing details?

@kczsilence I don't have any plans to do sneakers on the near horizon. I'd love to... but I'm not sure it's realistic for me to have a viable footwear collection in the current day. There's a ton of competition out there, and new customers are always suspect when a brand is doing footwear AND clothing. For the record, I think that we were making the best sneakers on the market .and the pricing was fair, but even that didn't prevent them from often being a tough sell at full price.

Yes, those were the first GAT's that we ran (2013). Made in Italy rather than Portugal. The leather is calfskin from Mastrotto... sole was from an Italian maker. It was a slimmer last and lower profile than the GAT's we made in Portugal a few years later.

@Epaulet Since you say slimmer last do you think I can make the 9.5 work? Haha I wear a 9 in the ghost sport trainer (portugal made right?)

I think you were making the best sneakers on the market. Just didn't have the cash to buy everything I wanted. I actually am still wearing a few of them but wanted to plan for replacements and been trying to figure out who has a copy of your full court pair that's close.

I certainly don't want you to stretch too thin and jump into any more competition than you have to. I just gotta take care of the pairs I have so I won't have to replace them.

Stay safe and great!

Reduced to $120 only. Price includes shipping by courier anywhere. Costs me $40 by Fedex so really giving this perfectly new jacket away. Just tried for size. Too thick for my part of the world. . A beautiful wine-coloured Melton wool jacket made from Pendleton Mills fabric made by Epaulet. Someone please buy me and use it for a nice cool evening.....

Rivet Chino Cramerton Cotton Twill Navy


Just got these yesterday from the sale but they are for guys with twiggy legs. Asking Epaulet price of $95. Can be delivered in person for Bay Area. These are great but too much taper. Size 33. Selvedge twill, almost black.

It's true there are more than enough "minimalist" sneaker brands out there, but I just sent my old Epaulet GAT to a shoe repair shop despite the somewhat high cost, because it was the best sneaker I owned. Even after all those years the leather upper was fully intact. Some people even asked me if those were Hender Schemes too.

Next up are a pair of white Wilhelm jeans in a 34. I got these for $120 so asking $80.

Lastly, a pair of Wilhelm chinos in a fantastic coffee Cramerton twill. These were $145 so asking $95.
Cramerton Twills sold so down to just the White Wilhelms (an excellent name for a caucasian rapper whose rhymes are mostly about lifting weights). Any takers at $50?
