Just ordered my first Epaulet pants, got the Walts in Regiment Twill Navy and Rivets in Duck Canvas Moss.

 

Do you guys with around a 32/33" inseam get your Walts tailored or can they be cuffed?

Alden x Epaulet Natural CXL Longwing (97871), Leydon.

Currently starting wear #1 of Mac break in method. Oh, how I hope these babies fit. Love the color and various subtleties across the shoe - exactly what I was looking for in a casual LWB.

Many shout outs to Mike, Adele and the whole crew!

 

 

These look fucking incredible. Really nice photography / great use of sunlight.

 

Break-in method sounds incredibly pedantic; I would just throw these on and go for it but I suppose if you're really worried about exact sizing then it's worth it to be careful on more expensive purchases.

While I realize there's no real way to answer this since everyone's different, at what height would you say someone should consider your Long sportcoat? looking for a ballpark number here.

For Epaulet jackets, I'd say if you're 6'2" or over you'd probably need a long, unless you like a really cropped look on your jackets. I'm 6'4" and the length on an Epaulet long works well for me. But again, like you said this will vary from person to person.

So you wear it for 3 hours over multiple days, then decide if the fit's for you? I'd hate to buy that return.

I'm not really picky about the fit. I think I've returned 2 pairs of shoes out of the 45ish I bought because they were .5 too large, which I was able to detect from the moment I slipped them on. I've been on the receiving end before I think. I bought a pair of shoes, and the leather bottom was kind of scratched up...but I liked the shoes and they fit fine so I didn't mind.

isn't it also to soften up the sole so that it's not as stiff and thus reduces the amount of early wear towards the front of the sole?

It helps a lot in this regard.^^

I can understand your "put on and go" mentality, SVB, and fwiw I think you can pretty much tell from the first wear.

But having saved up for these things for months now, I'd like to take every precaution to make sure they fit right, and are exactly what I've wanted. Easy to get distracted by the fluster of opening the green box.

So I left my huge suitcase in the trunk of a Beijing taxi and... there goes half my wardrobe!

Now I need to replace the items one at a time -- favorite items first, of course -- but the gunmetal rivets are sadly sold out in 34 already. Are they getting another restock anytime soon?

Also the brushed graphite rivets appear to be the same fabric and similar color as the gunmetals. Can anyone describe the difference?

The epaulet pages also post photos of models wearing the items and their weight and height, which also helps.

There's one who is 6'1" 180 and wears - I believe - a 40R well.

Do you guys normally wear the same tagged size in the Rivet chino as you do in the Walt trouser?  I have a 33 Walt that fits pretty well, not sure if I should try 33 or 34 in the Rivet.

post #18285 of 36591
I do, but I probably could go one size lower in my walts. It depends though, since the rivets sit lower on your waist, if you have a big ass like I do, you'll need to go one up. I just go 33 all across and have the Walts taken in, as depending on fabrics, sometimes a 32 can be too small in the Walt.
