Can someone tell me what the measurement is to the holes on this belt? I am a 32 waist and am soooo tempted to just get this belt in a 32and try it. I am thinking it will be alright if I am not in the dead middle, as long as I am not on very first hole. Hopefully the second hole is 32 inches....

Holy loafers batman, I've been wearing these puppies around all night, and have gotten a lot of compliments on them. They're fucking awesome. As Matt said, not a bad pair of loafers to be "popping my loafer cherry" on.

Question to you guys and the Epaulet gang: do you think it would be weird to put metal shoe taps on a pair of loafers like these? I've had shoe taps put on all of the other shoes that I've purchased this summer because the way I walk really wears down the tip of the shoe. However, I feel like it would look a little out of place on a pair of loafers. Thoughts?

Rule of thumb when getting a belt, always get 2 inches larger than your pant size. If you wear size 32 pants, get 34 in belts.

If you get a 32, you'll probably fit it close to, if not on, the last hole.

Yes. I am a 33 and I wear the size 34 belt. I think Epaulet sizing is pretty standard. I also think that everyone should own the natural chromexcel belt. I think you can pretty much wear it with anything. Even these:



Is anyone else wearing the washed red this summer? I took mine out for their first spin the other day. It did feel a little aggressive.

^ I like the belt/shoe combo with those pants - perfect for the summer. And +1 to everyone owning the natty CXL belt. You can wear it with pretty much any casual outfit; I've been wearing mine at least 2-3 days a week for the past year, and it's developing some nice patina.

I'm pretty much the exact same size as Simplicio too - I'm a 33 Rudy/34 Rivet and I wear a 34 belt, and the belt fits perfectly on the 2nd hole. I can sometimes use the middle hole, but most days that could be quite a stretch.

This looks almost exactly like what I wear most days, simple v-neck with the best khakis ever made. Can't go wrong with that nod[1].gif

Haha, I tried it one time as I was walking across the street. I wished someone was there to capture the moment. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I was in the process of crossing my arms there.

The washed red looks good. If they were offered this year, I probably would've got a pair too. frown.gif

Haha, I wish that we could. I just don't have the ability to make shirts outside of our pattern and beyond size XXL. We can definitely hook you up with an MTO southwick jacket though if you're ever in the market for that.

My only qualm is the cutaway collar - I like it, but I don't know how many iterations of it I'd want. Any plans to mix that up for the fall releases?

Fantastic - I'm thrilled that you're so pleased with the polo!

I'm really happy with how they came out. It's a tiny little segment of our collection, but it's something that I've been personally wanting for a long time. I've pretty much worn them daily ever since they came in. For Fall, I'm going to add a new long sleeve shape, and I'm thinking about doing a buttondown collar for that. It would keep the same button placket on the top ,and the sleeves would finish off with real working button cuffs, not ribbed ones. I'll bring in some short sleeves too, as some guys (especially me) like to wear short-sleeved polos year round. We definitely need a nice forest green tone.

Measured from the edge of the belt (not the longer edge of the keeper), the second hole is 31" down. If you're a true 32, then I'd be nervous that this is going to be too small on you. Every exchange that we ever took on the belts was for a size up, so the guide of buying it 1-2" larger than your waist size has been very consistent.

Yowza, those look fantastic! Thanks so much for picking them up!

Hmmm, I'm not really sure on the metal taps. I've never seen those on a handsewn like this, but that doesn't mean it would necessarily look out of sorts if you put them on. They're pretty subtle, so no one besides you is really going to know that they're on there. If you intend to do a lot of walking in them, then it might be a good idea to have it done.

More Preview Shots!

Hey guys, got some more Fall preview stuff to show you:

First off, here are swatches for the Deadstock Southwick jackets that will arrive around the end of August. Each one only has about 4-6 units, and they were made in sizes 38, 40, 42. Pricing is going to be $595, which is about $150 less than we'd have to charge for current season fabrics. The first three are Scottish Shetland Tweed, and the last one is a super-thick Harris Tweed. They're a mix of the partially lined Caine shape and the flap pocket Daltrey shape.


Camel/Cobalt/Scarlet Tattersall Shetland Tweed


Olive/Cranberry Windowpane Shetland Tweed


Tan/Lichen Herringbone Shetland Tweed


Silver/Black Herringbone Harris Tweed

And, here are the three colors of wool Rivet Chinos. They're a soft, medium weight Italian flannel. Gorgeous hand on these. The chinos will be $195, half-lined to the knee, and delivered around 9/15. The colors are more muted in real life - they look more saturated then they should in this Iphone pic. But you can get an idea for 'em.

Those wool RC colors are fantastic. Just scream Autumn. Bravo -
