Introduction Customizable Options Sizing  Terms & Conditions

We're thrilled to present our made-to-order sportcoat program! Working with our signature slim athletic fit, you can choose an array of details to create your very own custom suit. Each suit will be expressly made for you at the esteemed Southwick Clothes of Haverhill, Massachusetts. 

This Classic Suiting range from Southwick and Vitale Barberis Canonico offer timeless designs in an ideal year-round fabric weight. These luxurious yarns will make up into a supremely comfortable and elegant garment. As one of Italy's oldest family mills, Vitale Barberis Canonico is renowned as one of the finest woolen manufacturers on Earth. This striking lineup of stripes offers traditional suiting patterns in a range of widths.

Chalk Stripes are wide-set and low contrast. The individual stripes are tonal to the ground and offer a great balance of subtlety and contrast.

Variegated Stripes alternate wide lines with thin lines for a sophisticated and polished look.

Pinstripes have a very thin and dense pattern. From a few paces away, the suit will read as nearly solid. These are the most understated of the stripes, and the easiest to match with patterned shirts and neckwear.

Your custom suit is sized according to our standard Epaulet by Southwick sportcoat and Epaulet Walt Trouser. If you own either of these pieces already, you can order the sizes that you typically wear. If you own other Epaulet items (Rivet Chinos, Doyle jackets, etc), we'd be happy to help you nail down your suiting sizes.

If you're new to Epaulet altogether, feel free to reach out to us for assistance. We're very experienced with fitting customers remotely.


Working with our designs, you'll be able to customize your suit or sportcoat with these options:  

Jacket Style: Single Breasted Natural Shoulder, Single Breasted Soft Unconstructed shoulder, or Double Breasted Natural Shoulder. Single Breasted coats can be made in 2-button or 3-roll-2 configurations, and with either double or single vents.

Body Length & Sleeve Length: Order our standard, or select length from dropdown menu.

Pockets: Welt or open patch breast pockets. Inset with flap, open patch, or open patch with flap hip pockets.

Lining: Choose a liner and specify full or partial lining. Partial liners will be 3/8 on constructed jackets, and sleeves/shoulders on unconstructed (a.k.a. "Butterfly" liner)


Buttons: Choose from a lineup of horn resin buttons, metal buttons, or genuine mother-of-pearl buttons.

Trouser: All come with unfinished inseam. Choose between belt loops, side tabs, or suspender buttons at the waist. 

We have two size charts listed below - for the natural shoulder and the unconstructed shoulder. The main difference is the body length, the unconstructed shoulder "Dartmouth" model is 1.25" shorter than the natural shoulder and double-breasted models. This is an intentional choice by Southwick to create a more cropped/modern silhouette.

All measurements are shown in inches. Chest is measured from one armpit seam to the other. Sleeve is measured from the shoulder seam to the end of the cuff. Shoulder is measured from one shoulder seam to the other. Length is measured from the base of the rear collar to the bottom of the garment.

Each jacket has approximately 1" of seam allowance in the sleeves and chest that can be let out if need be. 

Sizing on the Epaulet by Southwick sportcoats are true to size and generally consistent with our in-house shirts. The size chart below illustrates how they match up. If your Epaulet shirt fits you very slim, or if you have broad shoulders for your build, we recommend ordering a size up. The fit in the shoulders is crucial—the chest and body can easily be taken in if need be.
