    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Looks GREAT man, I love that denim, and I'm about to experiment with mine...stay tuned.



    The weight isn't listed, but I'd put it at 10-12oz. Pretty sturdy. I have two samples made from it, and I've been beating the hell out of this one, I'll do a side by side photo comparison of the two so you can see how the denim will age. I freaking love it.

    So....if you follow us on social media you will have seen that we had to cancel our appearance at the Washington DC American Field Show. About 1/3 of the way down, car packed to the gills we got a call that our son had an allergic reaction and my folks (who were staying with him) needed us to come home. Not the call you ever want to get as a parent, but thankfully it wasn't as serious as first thought. Hudson is fine, but unfortunately we will not be making our planned DC appearance.

    However, we did have special pricing set up for the show, and will be sharing that will everyone as soon as we can get it up on our website this weekend.

    Thanks so much for your messages and support.

    @NewYorkIslander glad to hear your boy is ok. It's always alarming to get the call one of your kids is unwell.

    @duff406 thanks for the kind words.

    Hey - I was hoping for sizing recs on the denim workshirt. I generally wear size 38; Epaulet M generally fits well. Thanks in advance for the help!

    Without getting into the details had a terrific "customer service" experience with Yellow Hook.

    I've always believed it's the small and personal experiences that make great brands stand out.

    Thanks a lot Rob!

    I'm the same, maybe a 40" chest and pushing a M-L in EP shirts. I wear a YH2 in teh workshirts and a YH1 in teh dress shirts. Hope that helps. FWIW I'm 5'9" and 165-170 lbs.

    Just wanted to say that the Italian Denim sport shirt is great!
    Very nice fabric and construction looks solid.

    For me the fit is almost spot on. I went with a YH2. For comparison EP Medium shirts are too tight in the chest for me, and I would need a large in EP. The EP Ashland fit worked well in size Medium for me. Normally I would wear 15.5" in other brands as long as they are not sized super slim.

    Very happy with the purchase.

    Contrast stitching takes the cake there. Very nice.

    Two Yellow Hook OCBD's arrived. Love the old school soft collar roll. One uses a lightweight oxford and the other a heavy weight so I'm covered for year-round wear. I'll post some fit pics once I get them laundered and ironed. Thanks Rob and Courtney!
