Epaulet monsters, I made a mistake. I bought the Moss Duck chinos in a 33 and cold washed them today, thinking I would go to the tailor tomorrow. I took them out, let them dry, and realized they are not for me (I have come to the realization that I can't do the rivets - my thighs are too big). They're going to go up on b/s for a discount, and they are unworn. They're a 33. PM me if you're interested before I take pics and post them tomorrow.

What should one expect shrinkage wise across the board with rivets? I haven't washed any of my pairs yet shog[1].gif

I maschine washed my pair twice at 30°C/low temperatur since I got it and afterwards let it air dry.
It did neither shrink with wash nor stretch with wear, they are true to size.

I will buy one and see how it fits. Sounds like I may have a new hobby.

Long periods of time between posts in this thread makes me sad...nothing recent for me, pretty much been living on the beach past week and a half. But surely others have been wearing Eps. Having said that, Mike, any plans for doing a beach vaca-inspired pieces, particularly swim trunks?

I know it's been said before, but those Alden x Leffot navy suede longwings are the most amazing thing I've ever seen.

You and me both. I'm praying they will restock it next year.

Church.

I had some difficulty deciding on what special order trousers to order, and finally settled on the olive/bronze and midnight donegals. Hopefully they come out good for fall/winter.

Before the first wash they fit almost perfectly.
Love the cut around the thight, knee and the foot width, they are only ever so slightly tight on the waist but I think this will be fine with a bit of wear as well.

Ah fantastic - I'm glad to hear that they worked out!

As for Mallorca, based on the FB pics, it may have to be a vacation spot from my month long excursion I'm planning to Naples in the next few years. Simply GORGEOUS. And Carmina is there...

Oh you definitely should, Mallorca is beautiful. I'll have some more pics to show soon.

No we haven't, but we probably could do one via special order if you want. We don't have a lot of demand for them, so I don't see us doing a production run anytime soon.

Having him wear slim straight or straight fit trousers would ruin his silhouette. Look at the slimness of the shirt and his neck, and head, and imagine looser trousers...no good IMO.
I'm at the same height as Stan, except I'm a bit heavier at 155 lbs and I know I would be swimming in slim straight fitting trousers.

I'd definitely agree with this. I think that the jeans are a great fit on him.

I'm really hooked, especially with the instant tailoring gratification that the guys across the street provide. Looking forward to stopping in again once my wallet fills up a little bit.
That looks great! Thanks again for picking everything up, and glad that you're enjoying it!

Oh man, those are going to be killer!

Midnight Donegal is just going to be cool as hell. Olive/Bronze is a really unique tone that's going to be especially killer under a blue jacket.

I couldn't decide either! Finally ended up just going with the 'Navy/Green Tartan Wool icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Man, I couldn't sleep at 2AM and logged onto Epaulet's website to see if anything good showed up. I have a problem.
post #13769 of 31640
Looking for some help here:

I marked up Carmina Salinger Double Monk Cordos pretty good yesterday. Essentially a brown line/scuff on the toe box, so with the light sadle cordovan, the mark shows up very dark (almost like a magic marker). I tried taking a damp cloth to rub it ou and a good rubdown with my horsehair brush but no luck.

I am going to get some Saphir Renevateur but am thinking this may not be enough. What sort of shoe wax or cream should I get from the Saphir line to match color wise (going o be ordering oth products from Mike so colors available are on Epaulet's site).

Thanks in advance!
