Oh yeah, their flash sale is dope. I've been sweating that Nigel Cabourn Cameraman jacket all day.

Can someone explain this? I have a pair of Whiskey Longwings (Alden of Carmel) and a pair of Natural Chromexcel (Epaulet Shop) both in the Barrie last and size 8D. The Cordovan Whiskey feels a little pointier and a tad looser than the Natural Longwings. Also, why is the welt or sole edge on the Natural Chromexcel a little wider? Kind of wish my Cordovan Whiskey didn't look as pointy and really liking the snug and wider fit of the Natural Longwings. Is there a reason for the newer Alden sole being wider on the same last even though the leather is different or is this how Alden is making the Barrie last now, which is more like the newer Natural Chromexcels? Both are reverse welt as well.

**Just found out why the calf skin is smaller because it shrinks after the last is taken out. Now I know why the reverse welt on the Natural Chromexcel doesn't stick to the glue attached to the leather.

Still need to know why the bottom exterior sole is wider, though.

Just pulled the trigger on the longwings, ouch... I have shortwings in ravello so I needed to get these also right?

Wowza, just looked at my orders since Nov 30th (which does not include the Alden Brixton boot) and I exceeded my monthly clothing budget by a fair bit. Not to mention other stuff I bought for myself for Christmas, tis the season right?

Anyone have any comments on the quality and fit of the Epaulet brand shirts? Looking for some new shirts that are slimmer than the J. Crews I have been wearing...anyone know how they fit in comparison to regular J. Crew shirts and/or Apolis shirts?
post #3684 of 57809
^ Read back from the first post and you'll find the answer. In short: stop buying J.Crew and invest in Epaulet. I wear a small in most brands across the board and wear small in Epaulet with a slimmer and non-constricting fit.

D'oh. Should have done that in the first place. Thanks.

I own ten Epaulet shirts and one J. Crew shirt. There's a very good reason for that.

I wear small in most shirts but in the Epaulet, I wear a medium and it fits great

Really, the best thing you can do is take the measurements of your best-fitting shirt and compare them with the measurements listed on Epaulet's product pages.

This. I was just going to post because body types and sizing will always vary, it isn't a constant. Measurements are the best way to go. If you're in between size up, might even want to get two sizes and return the one that doesn't work out to be sure.

Hey Mike,

Any plans for a white button-down collar oxford in the near future?
