Thanks! Not buying CPs! Just needed a reference point for another maker!
Question for folks here. How does the sizing (primarily in length) compare between EP tennis trainers and Common Projects' similar style? I need that as a reference point. For context, I wear a US 9/EU 42 in EP tennis trainers. Thanks for any help!
Agree with Justin and Peppercorn. Part of the fun, now that I have a wardrobe plenty big enough, is the anticipation of a unique order, or just seeing a shipping notice pop in my email out of nowhere.That said, think about the economics of this more than the "fun." You may want Mike to be a "real shop" and carry lots of inventory, but the more inventory he has to carry (and take a chance on it not selling at any margin) the higher prices he has to charge across the board....

Had a drink w/ Mike last night in SoCal. As if it needed to be said in this thread, Mike is just an awesome guy. Thanks for the great discussion and nerdy menswear insights. I'll put some karaoke on the agenda next time I'm back in LaLa Land!
