^ Thought it was. It's aged so well, and darkened very nicely.

 

streetlight, what's your care/polishing regimen?

post #17613 of 37395
Yea they are Caramel, I've had them about 7 months, worn about twice a week, I have polished them with clear only twice. I brush them when I get inside though 90% of the time, and keep them with shoe trees in when I'm not wearing them. I am really pleased with how they have aged and how they look now. They are gorgeous, especially when the sun hits them.

@NYI - those wool rivets look fantastic.

I've been looking at the latest preorders and I'm not 100% sure about the sizing. The preorder page reads "Our Carmina for Epaulet shoes are produced in regular-width UK sizes". Does this mean that any shoe on any last will be an E, or does this mean that the shoes are the normal last width? For instance, would a shoe on the rain last be a regular E, or a wide EE as stated on the carmina website? I interpret it as the former, but thought I'd ask to be sure.

 

Oh btw, does anyone know whether the preorder deadline is 23:59 on monday (on the 7th), or 23:59 on sunday (before the 7th)?

Thanks streetlight. Does this mean you polish them with a neutral polish? Just confused on what you mean by "clear."
post #17617 of 37395
Yea neutral, sorry in the UK it sometimes is just called clear.

Pythons again:

There’s been a discussion regarding whether or not the pythons are too eccentric for the workplace. I decided to wear the most mundane set of clothing I have: a charcoal gray suit. From several feet away, the pythons look like a pair of whiskey hue shoes and are not as outlandish as one may think.

I know Mike answered this, but it's pretty damn warm. I've been wearing it as an overcoat most days (even though it's a tad shorter than a sportcoat, doesn't really bother me). When I posted the pic the other day it was in the low 30s here in NYC and I was warm wearing it over an oxford and DB. I also don't get all that cold. I'd say that it's personally comfortable to about 30 degrees for me, providing I wear a sweater or sportcoat under it.

As much of a grammar stickler as I can be, I definitely fuck it up often. Ha!

Epaulet,

I'm trying to decide what trousers will suit my needs best and thought I'd ask a few questions of you to help me decide!

1. Looking at the Walt trousers, which fabric would be most appropriate for yer round wear? I live in rural Australia, in the desert and it gets quite hot, but also quite cool (for Australia). Is the Regiment Twill the most 'year round', or is something else more appropriate - I'm much more concerned about the trouser being appropriate in the heat than in the cold!

2. Do the trousers stretch much? I'm thinking that a size 32 would be 'just right', but if there's stretching, perhaps a siz 30 would be more appropriate.

3. I've also considered the Rivet Chino, but I think the Walt looks ever so slightly more formal, however my workplace is very casual, are there any major differences between these two trousers?

Thanks for your time and help,

Matthew

 

Sorry you haven't received an answer. We've all been grinding away to get the new site fully functional. 

 

1)The Regiment Twill would be a good option. The cloth is very hard-wearing and it's a nice weight. Significantly lighter than even the most basic jeans, so it would be a good option. The Super 120's trousers are definitely the more dressy option. They're a pretty true 4 season fabric and will allow lots of ventilation through the warm months, but also insulation during the colder months. I really can't recommend these enough. But, like I said, they're definitely a little more formal than casual.

 

2)If you think the 32 would be just right, go for 32. They'll break in a little, but there isn't any crazy stretching (ala APC denim). They're also made to be tailored, so if you end up needing a little less room in the waist, you can easily have them brought in a touch. I personally have to do this on every pair I own.

 

3)The Rivet Chino is a little lower rise and overall more casual. That's not to say they can't be worn with a jacket and tie, but they're a little less refined, for lack of a better word, than the Walt. If your business environment is mostly casual, these could be right up your alley.

Italian Flannel Rivets. Rust. Glad I picked these up as they wear incredibly well...not as heavy duty as the cotton rivets, but definitely a bit more elegant. Great pant.

 

Jesus. That overcoat looks like it could stop bullets. Oh and the Epaulet stuff looks pretty good too fistbump.gif

here's a pic of my #8 Brixtons that I wore today - these have about a year and a half of regular wear on them now (probably worn once every week or two), and the only maintenance I ever did was use a horsehair brush after each wear.

They've lightened up a good bit! Lookin' good, mang!

The width of the Forest, Rain and Inca are considered a standard medium width. Especially compared to most American manufacturers. They're three of the widest lasts that Carmina uses, but are far more sleek than a lot of UK and US shoes. I wouldn't describe any of them as particularly narrow or wide. I own shoes on all three and they're the best fitting shoes that I've ever worn. If you wear C&J, Alfred Sargent, Alden, Allen Edmonds, etc in a standard width, these should fit you well.

Agreed x100,

 

I had no real interest in the pythons... then WJ4 makes a couple posts in them all casual and now I am loving them haha.

post #17622 of 37395
Jesus, NYI ( that just does not sound right compared to NYR) and Wj4 own this whole site. Seriously guys, great work.

Looking at the blue OCBD and trying to figure out my sizing.

I wear a small custom fit in RL, in between a 36 and 38R in suits, and wear 15 neck on dress shirts (Kent Wang size 15 dress shirts fit well if I add 1" to the chest and waist measurement).

Thanks.
post #17624 of 37395

^ I'm also between a 36 and 38 in most suits, and a 15 shirt, and I wear an Epaulet Medium and an Ashland Small. There are OCBDs in both lines, I think. Epaulet Medium fits me very well. Ashland Small fits me like a glove.

Thanks leftofthedial :)
