Hey guys. Looking for a bit of advice. Will be collecting my first purchase from Epaulet tomorrow, a pair of Caramel Duck Canvas Walts. 
Wondering what people's feelings about cuffs versus no cuffs on these ?
Can't go wrong either way. I'm getting 3 pairs of Regiment Twill Walts in this week and will put 2" cuff on all.

Thinking of trying a pair of Walts before the next Rudy pre-order comes out. I'm thinking regiment or sanded twill, so which color would you guys suggest for a first pair?

would a burgundy belt match with the ruby shell boots?

can't go wrong with navy. ever. not the most interesting, but definitely the most versatile.

Any chance of a chambray in point collar?

I'm just not a huge fan of button downs.

Come on guys could someone PLEASE measure their postwash small or xsmall epaulet shirt like this guide and post the numbers? I'm afraid If I get the xsmall gingham that it'll shrink too much in length and sleeves. With a 34.5 chest, should I go with a small and shrink it in the dryer?

Quick question; If you wear a 32 in Acne denim, would you be a 33 or 34 in Epaulet chinos? 

post #18805 of 31710
I think that depends on the cut of the Acne jeans. I wear a 31 in Acne Mic (rigid) and wear a 31 in Epaulet chinos.

Acne Max Raw and Acne Max Cash which are normally vanity sized by 1 or 2.

Hence making me think that 33 might be the go.

i'm on a business trip this week, otherwise i would measure an epaulet xs shirt for you. the context method in your link looks pretty standard, so just go by the epaulet provided measurement chart from their website. shrinkage is minimal if you cold wash and hang dry. don't put them in the dryer. if your suit jacket size is 34, you should probably get XS.

In general, all the Epaulet shirts will shrink ~.5" at the most in the arm and length, and perhaps a little less than that in the neck. I can't remember if the Ashland shirt fabric is pre-washed or not...

Personally, i have about eight shirts (just one Ashland) and the above is true across all but the heavier, flannel fabrics, which shrank a little more in length (especially the purple herringbone, which shrank a full inch in the body and almost as much in the sleeves).

Please keep in mind all these shirts were also tumbled dry on low after the first wash to get any shrinkage out, which no doubt added to the loss of length on the flannels. If you wash them cold and hang dry, you'll get only minimal shrinkage, especially on the tighter weave fabrics (eg. oxford cloths, poplins, etc).

With the higher stance, how does everyone keep the collars on their Epaulet Button-Downs looking sharp? Should I be putting them on the hanger unbuttoned? Is there any other trick that helps or do I just need to press them before each wear?
