Would definitely be in for a brown pebble grain short or longwing with a rubber sole. Perfect all weather shoe.

Man, so much good shit coming down the line.  :cheers:   

 

 

Alden Alt Wein Toe Cap > Vass 

 

Suede PTB, Wings, & Alts :nodding: - Would love to see some unique colours.  Everyone makes Snuff & Tan.   Although both of those are great too. 

 

Murdered out Calgary boot is still high priority on my list...  Hopefully it winds up like I'm picturing it in my head... 

 

When the Chelseas get off the ground a suede version would be much appreciated.  And these heavy rivets on the horizon sound very tempting also.  Any idea on colours for those?

What about a horsehide preorder for these PTBs @Epaulet? Of course, I have yet to confirm my assumption that the EP/Comipel horsehide sneakers will be awesome... But we're thinking ahead here.

 

@FrankCowperwood good call - horsehide PTB's are pretty unstoppable

@frankcowperwood is always on point. I would probably prepay for an Ep horsehide shoe. My vote would be for a perforated captoe / alt wien design with maybe a double leather or dainite sole. Something of a daily workhorse to beat the heck out of.

Can't wait. My horsehide trainers are scheduled to arrive today. Thanks for shipping them despite the chaotic weekend I'm sure you had!

 

@docalden2013 good to hear from another Alt Wien aficionado! When we're talking about a makeup in this line & price, the sole units are always going to be different. My guys can't work with Dainite, and leather is a little bit problematic. 

 

Blake stitching uses one large stitch to fix the upper to the sole. There's a channel at the bottom of the sole that holds the stitch. Once the channel wears through, the stitch hits the pavement and the shoe comes apart. Any leather soled shoes from blake manufacturers like Quoddy, Rancourt, and a ton of Italian brands will have this issue. We came across it when we made our own handsewns in Maine. This is the nature of blake stitching, and it is an issue for longevity. 

 

When we started work on the PTB & Combat boot, I was a real pain in the ass. I insisted up and down to the factory that we needed a sole that was low profile and potentially biz-caz, but also long wearing. We ended up with the leather-rubber combo used on the PTB. The sole is stacked leather - and can be nicely edge-trimmed, and the bottom has rubber grip panels from St. Moritz. The rubber gives you nice traction and provides a lot of durability for the sole - way more than an all-leather unit could ever have. And truthfully, this is the only sole that I really have to use - at least right now. It's not a pure traditional dress shoe, but I think that the price and the comfort puts it into another realm. I love the idea of knocking out a Longwing or Alt Wien pattern and delivering a rad suede European-made shoe for $255.

Has anybody received one of the tweed overshirts yet? I'm interested in the sizing. I always have a difficult time with Epaulet's shirts - A medium is usually great in the neck and the midsection, but uncomfortably tight across the shoulders and chest. A large is usually way too big across the shoulders (as well as everywhere else). I really want to pick up one of the overshirts and am leaning towards a large, since I probably won't mind the baggier fit so much since it is such a casual piece. FWIW, I have a 40 in the heirloom sweaters that fits great and most of my MTO sportcoats from Epaulet are a 41.

@Michigan Planner Go for the Large, I think that's going to be the best fit for you. You can expect it to fit you like the one in Dylan's pics fit him. I think that it lends itself nicely to being worn a bit larger. That way you can also layer a flannel underneath. I'd take a large and also wear a 40 Heirloom and 41 Sportcoat. 

 

Also, drop me an email if you ever want to set up a custom Individualized profile. We can easily do that for you - I suspect that your sizing will be similar to what I order.

@Michigan Planner thank you sir! Great choice on those Sport Trainers too - the Saddle CC is just gorgeous. 

 

 

 

Also, I'll apologize in advance for the image above - I'm on kind of gif bender these days.

Also don't think I ever posted this pic, if you are on fence the new Indys are the nicest version I've ever seen. Leather feel is really nice as well



Love this version of indy!

Mike, can you please include this indy in next round of Alden pre-order?!
post #47802 of 57754
Mike,

When are the PTB's going live?, Also are they Mocha or Saddle , can't tell from the pics?

Thanks.

@kwanon the shirt is killer on you

 

 

On that note, a huge thanks to you for working with me to adjust the fit. Taking out the pleats, adding darts, and slimming the sleeves took the fit to a whole other level. Combined with the sleeve and body length alterations this is now as good to me as a MTM shirt. I'll definitely be on the lookout for more Individualized offerings. Really looking forward to that strawberry cream flannel, which I'm convinced is going to be the winner of that last EFF round.

What is the ETA on the saddle couro cromo tennis trainers?

For PTBs, I would be interested in seeing a mid grey or charcoal grey suede.
