The sizing equation

The sizing equation we have up is how most guys have sized. I'm a true US 9 and went with the 41.5, which is what we call a 9.

For reference I wear a UK8 in laced Carmina shoes.

Ah, sorry about that. We were short shipped an entire box and only got a pair or two of that size. We sold a few pairs the day they arrived and a guy actually bought a couple of pairs.

That said, we have another production run in the works already and I think the balance of our first run should be with them.

Rob: haha at the camo idea. I'm down.

Dark brown duck canvas?! I am excited! The one color pant I wish you had more of (so I could have more of) is brown! I'm guessing you will get it in Walt eventually too?

And I've got one more sneaker fit photo for everyone. The Rivet Chinos are our new dark brown duck canvas, which will be online in the next day or two. It's killer!


Mike, you are killing me! A day after I order my Chocloate rip stops you drop a brown duck rivet. I guess I am going from zero to two brown pants in the same week. Epaulet! (Said in Seinfeld, Newman voice)

Hey guys, just wanted to show you what happened with my Natural Chromexcel belt this morning. It seems the glue holding the two straps together somehow failed. You think I should get this glued / reassembled or should I just ask a local leatherworker to put in a couple of studs to hold it together?

 

Cheers

A quick and relatively cheap fix is to have a shoemaker stitch the belt...looks cool too.

Mine did the same thing, haven't gotten it fixed yet. The brown chromexcel belt I have didn't have this problem. Let us know how it turns out.

I've been wearing the hell out of all my EP belts - western print, brown CXL, natural CXL, unfinished bridle leather. Pretty much every day for the past 2 years I've worn one of these. They've all held up very well, especially considering the amount of times each of them has been worn.

Today I'm wearing the natural CXL, which is probably my most worn belt, and this is the only one that's starting to have a problem - it looks like the 2 pieces of leather are starting to pull apart from each other right at the spot where it's buckled. Apologies in advance for the crotch shot below. I'm going to keep wearing this thing until it completely falls apart, and if it ever does I'm going to get it fixed and keep wearing it smile.gif

Yup, my natural CXL belt had the same issue.
Adele suggested a local fix. Ended up being $12 repair where additional stitching was added.
You may be able to DIY it with contact cement, which works well on leather, but I would want the stitching reinforcement.

Hey all,

Thought I would offer this to the thread first before posting in the marketplace. Due to some upcoming vacation plans, I've decided to sell the pair of Khaki Regimental Twills that I picked up in the sale to get a little extra spending cash. They are a size 32 and are still fresh in the box and waiting to be hemmed. I'm selling them at the sale price I picked them up for at $95 plus shipping. If you're interested, send me a PM!

My natural CXL also did the same - went the cement route via my shoe repair place but it didn't hold.  Doesn't seem like laminated leather and lining stays together well without stitching and since the brown CXL belt (which I have too) is a single piece, there's nothing to separate.
