would have already grabbed them if they had my size

DWFII doesn't recommend anything special. Just Lexol.

Thanks - I'm 24 and just starting to build a quality biz casual wardrobe. The trousers seem to be a great deal for the quality and will fashionably last a long time.

Patent leather isn't just for black tie or formal anymore. I've seen them worn with jeans and a blazer for a great look.

Just got my Hardie hawl collar cardigan in 38. Size and length is perfect, 36 might have been too short in the sleeves. Very pleased with it.

Hmm, not in the chinos, but we're keeping quite a few flannel and tweed walt trousers in stock for the next few months. Check out the Walt "flannella" pants in navy and taupe - those are killer and a really great buy.

Epaulet, any chance of seeing those again? Can they be special ordered?

In theory yes, we can special order these for you. Since it's a separate cutting from our usual walts, it would probably run another $40 or so as a one-off charge. But we can do it, just drop a line to Matt at leftofthedial if you're interested.

Very cool! I'll be in the Manhattan store all day tomorrow and on Saturday if that's good for you. Otherwise, we'll certainly have friendly dudes staffing the shop even if I'm not here.

Could the store have more options? I live outside of NYC and would be willing to visit the Manhattan store.
Thanks

The stock is correct, but we've got a full restock of all those trousers planned for right after the holidays. For a beginning biz caz assortment, check out:

Super 120s in navy and grey
Wool/Cashmere in grey
Oxford Grey flannel
UK Sanded Canvas olive
Regiment Twill Khaki

White, cream, and pale grey are great matches. That goes for solid shirts and patterns. As long as the base color of the pattern is white, cream, or grey, it often works great.

Another testament on Epaulet trousers. The same lady has tailored all of my trousers from Epaulet, all 15+ pairs. Today I took a pair of J. Crew pants to be taken in. The retail was like $120 but I got it for less than $40 because I just like the print. It's made out of mostly acrylic, haha. I didn't tell the lady anything but as she was pinning the rear and the thighs she asked if the pants is from a different maker because the pattern is inferior and tailoring is limited. In short...Epaulet rocks!
I also can't wait to get home. The pythons are supposed to be delivered tonight!

Thank you sir! She's got good taste smile.gif

If I had a pair, I would most likely use the Saphir Reptan "Beauty Milk" for maintenance. I bought a jar from the Hanger Project to use on my small collection of croc/gator watch straps and I thought it worked great. The straps all looked pretty good after treatment. The packaging suggests that it can be used for all reptile skins.

Perfect recommendation on the Saphir Beauty Milk. Renovateur is great too.

You'll want to baby your exotic shoes a bit. That goes for python, lizard, gator, stingray, any of those. Don't wear them in lousy weather if you can avoid it. If you get caught in the rain then so be it, but if you wake up an you know that it's going to rain, snow, sleet, or whatever, then grab another pair of shoes.

Stick to gentle conditioner creams (like the Saphir products mentioned) and avoid polishes or waxes. When applying cream to the python, ALWAYS work in the direction of the scales.

Python is actually pretty tough. Its used often in western boots and bags. Eventually some scales will fall off, but just take care when you're wearing them and you'll get a lot of life out of it. And having a pair of insanely worn python brogues five years from now will hold a charm all its own. Enjoy them!

Really? What do you do to wear highland dress every week? That's pretty awesome!

Mike & Matt, it was a pleasure meeting you gentlemen in person on Sunday afternoon!  Had a good time hanging out at the shop and chatting (not to mention disrupting your workflow).  Will have to make another trip down sometime!

And the flannelas (and your tailor) rock!

Great meeting you too - thanks for coming by!

I'm thinking around the end of January. We've got them on order, but CDG is currently sold out of extra inventory.

any chance we'll see the single monks in a "regular" leather like french calfskin? love the look of them, but too cheap to shell out for shell.
