Yuketen Boots after a year. Didn't wear them much in the warm months

I have the same pair of Chelsea's though I keep scratching them somehow from bumping into things. I hope the saphir burgundy cream cleans them back up to how yours look.

Guys-- can I get some sizing help on those gorgeous Carmina Salinger double monks? I wear C&J for RL Lindrick boots in size 10D that fit perfectly but as snug as I can take it on the sides. I have somewhat wider feet than normal without being considered "wide". Any suggestions as for what size I should go for in the Salinger?

Sure thing, please stop by anytime! We have guys traveling from all over, and our team will be happy to size you on everything that we make.

For the belts, I'd lean towards the Caramel calf as the closest Ravello match. It's certainly complimentary. And if you want to be really hardcore, I've heard of guys who have had their tan calfskin belts dyed at a cobbler to be a nearly exact match for Ravello, as it's nearly impossible to find a belt in that leather. I'd personally just wear the caramel, it looks nice and on point.

I want to go back and get another pair and probably a moleskin pair as well soon.  
........I have a question though about cleaning and care..What is the recommended way to clean and dry these pants? I was thinking just machine wash and air dry.. is that OK? How about for the moleskins, wash or dryclean?
Thanks in advance!

Thank you sir, and glad that you're pleased with them! I'd definitely recommend cold wash and hang dry for all of our cotton trousers - moleskins included.

Shrinkage isn't much of a concern except for length. Pretty much all of our cotton trousers can shrink 0.5 or 0.7" in the length after a wash. Most guys will then either hem them after the first wash or ask the tailor to add an extra half inch onto the planned hem to compensate for this shrinkage.

I've heard there's sizing issues. If my foot measures exactly US 11.5 after I've been standing on it all day, will this fit? (I ordered a US 11.5) Unfortunately I'm new to 'good shoes' and I don't have many other shoes or lasts to compare the Inca to.

Is there any timeline on when these (below) will be back in stock in 11.5? The Austerity Brogue is pretty kick-ass.

Awesome! Thanks for picking them up and enjoy them!

Drop me a line after they arrive and let me know if you need to change sizes. There's two rules of thumb with double monks:

1. As a laceless style, you need a fairly snug fit in the beginning. They shouldn't be constrictive, but it's okay and desirable if they fit you closer than a normal shoe straight out of the box.
2. Be conscious of the heel. A bit of slippage is normal with most goodyear welted shoes. When you first put on the shoe, the leather sole is stiff (especially that thick double leather one that we use) and the shoe is lined with a soft nappa leather. The liner doesn't grip your sock very hard, and the stiff soles don't move with you much until you break them in. Heels coming up a little bit is okay and fairly normal on a double monk. Heels coming out a lot probably means that this size is too large. You'll probably know if it feels "right," but don't hesitate to ask if you need any of our help.

They may be the first shirts that I won't have to have my tailor take in. I opened the shipping box, tried these on, and they were instantly my favorite shirts. I'd take these any day over BBBF and Ledbury.

Only two minor quibbles... I wish the size M had a 15.5 collar. Size 16 is workable but a touch big for me (I wouldn't want to wear a tie with it), and the size small would be too small in all other measurements. I also wish they were about 1 inch longer. I didn't really notice it on the dress shirts with the cutaway collar, but the shirts with the tall button down collar seemed a little unbalanced to wear untucked.

Should I expect length shrinkage when washed cold/cold and line dried?

Overall, these are great shirts. I'm looking forward to getting a few more.

Keep up the great work!

Thank you sir!

On the collar, you can expect a bit of shrinkage there after the first wash - about a quarter of an inch or so. It will come in on it. The body length shouldn't shrink by any significant amount, but you'll want to stick with cold wash and hang dry.

They look great! This is a pretty rare piece - the Yuketen guys no longer produce this style at all. It's one of my favorite things that they ever released.

The width should be alright for you. The Inca last is actually a brilliant mix of a wide mid foot and a tapered toe - we've gotten great feedback from customers who are on the wide end of a medium fitting.

I'm not personally familiar with the C&J RL sizing, but most guys size down 1 from their typical US dress shoe size. If you live near a place that carries basic Allen Edmonds styles, then check out the Park Ave - it's their classic captoe bal. I find that this last fits very true to size, and sizing down 1 will give you a great approximation of how the Salinger will fit (ex. most guys who wear a 10 in the Allen Edmonds Park Ave will take a 9UK in the Salinger).
As another option, a Converse chuck taylor tried on with dress socks usually yields the same sizing equation.

The Before-After Contest

Hey guys!

Thanks for all of the fantastic contributions so far! When I set the one-week time frame originally, I didn't appreciate the fact that many guys want to scan their old pictures from the pre-digital days, so let's push out the date for more contributions. How about we end it on Sunday, the 24th.

Again, here's the rules (which have been followed perfectly so far)
- Post your photos in sets of 2 - a "Before" and an "After"
- 3 sets are allowed per member.
- Age 16 is the minimum age for before pics
- Please have at least one Epaulet item in your After shot. This includes Epaulet branded items and 3rd party items that you purchased from us (like a Schott jacket, Carmina shoes, CDG Play item, etc).
- There will be two winners. One will be chosen by popular vote and the other by random ballot. This way, the most slamming submission (as determined by you guys) will take one prize, but all others have an equal chance of winning the second. So there's a shot to win for everyone.
- The prize will be two custom trousers in a rare and psychotically nice fabric. I'll post that up this weekend after I dig out something very special at my fabric dealer icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Keep them coming! We're loving all of the submissions so far.

Thanks for the reply -- so basically I need the one size you don't have in stock on the saddle Salingers...ffffuuuu.gif

Any chance of a restock soon?

I should learn to heed this sort of warning... I think I'm going to pop in to the LES store and trade 3 of the 4 pairs for 31s.

They'll button up, but are rockstar snug. I'd post fit pics for critique but don't think I want my first fit pics to be *that* memorable...
