A sighting of the ca. 2017 Teba on the EP page proper, and another SF affiliate's insta posting of the Camoshita principal in a gobsmack tonal brown getup

1F9EC199-AAB6-45B6-BC50-515B39DB579C.jpeg

Reminds me of my Dragoni cotton suit that delivered Spring 2017 in a brown Mike simply dubbed walnut for the fabled Dragoni cotton run. You could opt for a Teba or sport coat top. Opted suit. Arrived just after I rotated back from a deployment, and took the sportcoat's not fitting me as a symptom of my swift reintroduction to IPAs and Beddia pie.

Now that I've long~ish been back to my fighting weight, so to speak, I admit the SC is just plain not fitting me (in my confirmed EP sport coat size) - I think the very slightly shorter overall length of the jacket raised the button point where it has to contend w/ my ribs (I lean a bit barrel chested). There's enough cloth along the back center seam to let it out a touch, but w/ cotton the original stitching and lines will show after tailoring - so rather than let that happen, to the aftermarket it goes. Yes, it's taken me almost two years to begrudgingly let this go.

Dartmouth-close equivalent specs and fit in 45L. Measurements coming in at ~19" shoulder, ~22.5" p2p, and ~29.5" bottom collar to bottom jacket. Welt breast pocket, patch pockets at hip, side vents at back. Matching trousers are Walt Porto fit in 36 (the Porto comes in slightly slimmer in the legs than the usual Walt). Worn only a couple of times for fit - and closet kit otherwise.

The suit ran for $550 - which was insane for the quality (check out the stitching) and fabric. I'll let go on B-S-T for $275. I'm of a mind to keep the trousers, so if you have an offer on just the jacket - let me know. I'll park here until I've got enough unwinds gathered up for a Luxeswap run.

Here's hoping @Epaulet finds more cloth like this again.

Some early interest cues some revisions -

The jacket is actually a 45R - in a modified Vittorio pattern from Epaulet's LBM collab days, so the measurements are what's more significant to true up. (FWIW I think the Dartmouth pattern first appeared ca. Fall 2016).

And the suit ran $650 during the edition, not the $550 I mentioned above.

Still a remarkable piece of kit that hasn't had an equivalent offering from EP since.

Thanks and apologies all at once.

I don't know how those shoes aren't gone yet...
Im surprised as well I’m pretty sure im reaching the point of just keeping them. They are a half size to big but that’s not a big deal with sneakers ultimately.

FS: Epaulet x American Trench Coat (with hood) - size 40

Grabbed this jacket at the NY closing sale a couple years back. Worn less than 10 times, just don't get around to it often enough. No idea what's fair for the jacket, so let's start the asking at $350 shipped in US

Going to try a few things here before sending them off to Luxeswap! Open to good offers, and please ask if you have any questions...

Size large Essex Jean jacket, fantastic shape except it's missing the bottom button. I would imagine a decent tailor could rivet on a new one. Otherwise this is in really great shape. $40
Measurements:
20.5" shoulder
22" chest
26.5" sleeve
26" overall

Size 42 blue duck canvas Doyle. It's a light blue, I'm thinking maybe it was called French blue? Anyway, also in great condition. Asking $75
Measurements:
19" shoulder
22" chest
26.5" sleeve
29" length

And saving the best for last! A pair of Epaulet Calgary bulchers in bull hide I believe they called these. Awesome shoes, just selling to fund something new. Great condition with just a little normal wear. They are size 10, which is my Barrie size, so I'd size same as your Barrie last size. Awesome shoes! Asking $100 for these, no bags or trees included. I swapped these laces in and think they are a great match. Let me know if you have any questions!
