If anyone is selling Doyle's in size 40 pm me.

I've also got this madras one in a 42:


And if anybody needs something a little more formal while their WFH, I've got these listed too:



Or maybe you need some chambray Rivets for the spring? Got ya covered!

Might I ask how tall you are? That teal sports coat is calling my name, but I’m worried it’ll be too short on me.
I'm 5' 8". I did have Epaulet add an extra inch to the length over their normal measurements for their sports coats (not so with the houndstooth).

Thanks. I'm 6'1" so this would definitely be on the short side for me. 30"-30.5" or so is generally the sweet spot for length on sports coats for me. For the Dartmouth, I needed an extra 1" in length, but the Nuovo is pretty spot on in a 41 w/o any additional length.

That being said, I may still go in for this one. I think the 3 patch pockets and the ultra-casual color may put this in a realm where a slightly shorter length may come off as just being part of the look.

Added to watch list.

Any sashiko EZ pants in 37 out there?

I have red, so any other color.

Thanks

safari cloth IS custom from FW17 - somewhere on sf is a record of @Epaulet declaring this the shop fav fabric of that season's IS selection. XXL with a couple of fit tweaks at factory, genuine horn buttons, and single flap pocket spec. it's basically the epaulet stock (when it was stock) safari shirt without epaulets (ahem) and single vs double pockets. $85 shipped CONUS. thanks for looking!

Came across these guys in the back of a closet. Damn good shoes, really versatile, and with much patina left ahead of them.

Epaulet Natural Horsehide Sport Trainer (GAT), 11.5.

These fit true to size if maybe a quarter-size big. I’m a solid 11.5 D or 11 Barrie and these fit well.

Shoot me an offer if interested.

THEDI MA-1 Bomber Jacket from the 2015 Epaulet GMTO. Dark brown HH and size XXXL as ordered, but that's given the unique Epaulet sizing regime for this kit and maybe not useful unless @Epaulet ran this one again - I'm generally an XL/44 in basic bro makes and sometimes even an L, an XXL in most epaulet OTR, and wear a slouchy 46 in James Grose leather jackets fwiw. Getting ~20" shoulder, ~24" p2p, ~27 3/4 top collar to bottom jacket, and ~36" sleeve from collar seam.

So much my favorite it's become the "don't touch it. don't even point at it" item of my wardrobe - so while in SIP-coaxed edit mode, out to the wild it goes. Kids need braces, all that. Worn in the house a couple of times just to look in the mirror and say "@#%* yeah" - otherwise very well preserved forever closet stock here. Since leather takes on a little character even if put in a garment bag in cold storage, I don't know if you can ever call a leather something "as new", but this comes close. Custom spec includes no sleeve zip pocket for a sharper look.

Giving the ep bs&t lifers a lead w/ this one before we see what's off broadway ("their appeal is becoming more selective"). I'll throw a number out there - $900 - and know i have some maneuver room for the ep crowd. Step up! Shot some hasty pics for this thread post - let me know if you want a shot of anything in particular.

I really like where @Epaulet's taken the leather jacket program w/ Aero since (and still have one in my sights eventually), but for heavy AF horsehide and a clean looking one piece back - you've got to go to the back catalog and the five boroughs era. Also amazing these somehow got made and delivered through the challenge of the 2015 Greece debt crisis --- born w/ backstory.

I've got a few @Epaulet knit ties listed on LuxeSwap with @SpooPoker that some of you might be interested in. These are great, but my style has evolved and I just don't wear the knit ties as often anymore.




I'm 99% sure this one was one of my Epaulet ties as well. Maybe it had a faulty label and I never noticed:

Going to try to list all these things on eBay/grailed in the next few days, but let me know if you're interested and need measurements/more pictures. most of the pants are osize 34s and I often had the waists slimmed down.

Man they look great at 34 waist but I need a 31” for length at least. Lots of great rivets but too short.

some are actually 30.5" after measuring a couple for someone just now with room to let out. Let me know what you're interested in and we'll see what works.

Do those cardigans run TTS?
pretty much a size medium in Epaulet and 38 in suits. here's a video about them.
