Regarding certain sizes being sold out in the Greenwich boot pre-order on Leffot: I've had my preferred size sell out on their pre-orders numerous times and sent them a quick email asking if it was possible to still get in on the pre-order. I've done this 3 or 4 times and every single time they've been willing to accommodate my request. My nicely worded emails always seem to get the desired results. I don't think there would be a need to send them an angry email.
That's awesome! Looking forward to seeing more about these shirts!
The Gitman Vintage I've gotten from UM fits a bit more trim than the New England shirts, but not much. However, I've gotten Gitman Vintage shirts from a number of different places and I've found their sizing to be pretty inconsistent. I don't know if they make different cuts for different retailers or if they are just all over the place.
Also in on the Guatemalan shirt. In most brands I am right in there for a medium but Epaulet mediums are always a bit tight across the chest and in the upper arms for me while the large is just a bit too big. I went with a large in the Guatemalan. If it's still too big, I'll just stop running and drink more beer this summer. The shirt is that awesome!
The New England shirts that Epaulet carries are a special cut just for Epaulet and are a bit more trim than the ones that UM carries, which are basically the same fabrics and cuts you will find at 95% of the places that carry New England shirts. I have a couple from UM and a couple from a local store and they fit me fine, I ordered one from Epaulet in the same size but had to return it as it was just a bit tight through the chest and especially in the biceps... and it's...
I size up one from my Walts for Rivets and then bring in the waist as needed. That will give me an extra bit in the thighs and rise/seat that I prefer. As for wearing them with untucked polo shirts, I think that's totally acceptable with the Rivets.
7.something this morning very slowly until the final 2 miles when I finally decided to open it up a bit.
Got a stack of New England Shirt Company spring and summer shirts through the UM sale. When I see Unionmade put up these relatively large sales (large as in quite a bit of merchandise), it always makes me wonder how much they actually sell at regular price?
4.3 miles this morning in a sudden cold spell with temps back down in the 30s. It was a nice spring while it lasted.
I received my Sea Canvas rivets today. What an awesome material! I expect them to break in quite nicely!I'm with MrDV and will wear and wash my Rivets a few times before getting them altered. I do those with almost all of my cotton pants just to be sure I've accounted for any shrinkage or stretching, though most pants don't seem to have that problem these days.As for the fit itself, a true 34" waist on the Rivets fits me best with letting it out just a tad but the thighs...
