I must have missed the details, but what, where and when is this show?
Quote:The Gentlemen's Expo will be taking place at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on September 25-27. Because I'm currently unable to hyperlink and don't have the time to experiment with the bracket setup, here's a link to what will be going on at the convention: http://www.gentlemensexpo.com/attractions There is a bevy of gentlemanly things to do, from the looks of it. Your ticket includes drink tickets that you can use to consume alcohol samples.
There's also some cool stuff you can do. I think archery tag will be there. Friday and Saturday is only for the grown ups. Sunday you can bring the kids along.
Just a heads up for any Canadians getting in on the next order of Epaulet Heirloom sweaters, I contacted Northern Watters and they said you can just size down by two from whatever size you take in the EP heirlooms to achieve the same fit. I.E. If you take a 40 in the EP heirloom then you would order a 36 from them. It's $282 CAD for a cardigan directly through them and $275 USD plus $20 for the direct shipping option. You really only save the difference in the dollar but I figured it was worth posting regardless.
this is great post. Thanks Nik.
Happy to help!
General question about shoes. does it make a difference for you if the insoles of your shoes has the retailer name? For instance, Saint Crispin's for *retailer name*. Does it add or deduct from the value of the shoes?
Not super imptt but id say "add".
I like it personally. Makes each one identifiable for the makeups, may add a bit of authenticity knowing "GTA Shoe Shine" carries "Vass Budapest"...
However they will be worn off after use anyways, so not a huge deal.
For resale purposes, I don't think it adds or subtracts any value in the secondary market.
I would agree with everyone else, it's a neat little detail that I enjoy but it's certainly not going to be a deal breaker.
It detracts, IMO - I'm in favor of the least amount of extraneous script as possible.
I actually dislike most of what Gotstyle has to offer (strikes me mostly as expensive fast fashion) but for those interested in MTM this seems like a pretty neat offer. Never used them so can't comment much.
I would say it adds to the coolness factor, but not particularly significant in terms of value. I've purchased two pairs of dub monks from Epaulet and The Armoury seperately, and I love them both the same, even though my Armoury ones just have the maker's name in them, whilst the Epaulet ones say they're specially made.
I think stockists who get their names put onto the inner sole would see more value on their end, as it shows a closer relationship between maker and retailer, and solidifies the notion that they are of a more reputable status in terms of credibility.
Which model of theirs most resembles the Heirloom, or do you just call them up and order over the phone asking for "that EP cardigan"?
The exact model is the VC1: http://www.nwknitwear.com/products/VC1 You may even recognize that picture from last years inclusion of the derby colour. Just for reference this is the exact email I got from Wanda at NW "Epaulet’s sweaters measures a little different, his sizes are two bigger than ours. If you have a size 38 of Epaulet’s, it’s our 34, Epaulet’s size 40 is our size 36 and so on.The VC7 measures very similar except the sleeves are a couple of inches longer." The VC7 is their other cardigan model with the slash pockets. I enquired about both the VC1 and 7. Hope this helps!
You may have to email them to see if they have any picture of sweaters fully made up in some of the less common colours.
