Glad I'm not crazy. Mine seem big too. I wear an 11 in Stans and my 10.5 trainers are easily that size. I wear a 10.5 in Clarks/Converse/Jack Purcells so I went with that...these aren't outrageously big, but they are def bigger than I'd buy if I was trying on in-store.

That leaves us with a suit factor of .134! I'm totally screwed, but at least I'll be warm in my flannel suit.

@bkotsko yes, but with a caveat - it's our first round, so we'd be essentially ordering a MTM Luigi trouser with the approximate measurements of a Walt, Driggs, or Rudy. I'm meeting with the guys tomorrow to review all of the measurements in person, as we sold two suits at the SF show. Should work fine, but it won't be as exact as Southwick, who are using our actual paper patterns. But we'd give you a tailoring credit if they need some adjustment.

Anyone own a Southwick Sportcoat and Vittorio LBM Jacket? I think I know my sizing, but the measurements between Southwick and Vittorio LBM Jacket are much different in the shoulder for the same sizing.

@badsha we'll post up direct comparison pics tomorrow between the two of them.

My mullet :embar: and I saw that exact tour. Mid 80's metal was so cheesy, but so fun. :slayer:

I waited months for these full court highs and sadly they have a fault in the stitching. I'm torn between ignoring it and wearing them or returning them.

@Shouldaville I am really, really so envious of that. Show must have been amazing! 

 

The metal bands of my formative years were all Pantera and Biohazard - everyone was a lot more pissed off by the early 90's. You got to see the Priest right in their prime "Heavy Metal Parking Lot" days! 

 

 

BTW if anyone here has not seen "Heavy Metal Parking Lot," then block yourself out like 20 minutes and watch it. One of my favorite bits of film ever.

My terrible self-photos approach an all time low here but it is my first outting with the lime herringbone rivets from a recent EFF so...

Hey guys - we just opened up a thread in the GMTO forum for our Chelsea boot preorder.  Check it out here: Epaulet Chelsea GMTO Thread.

 

We'll cross post to this thread whenever possible but that thread will be the "official" home for all things Epaulet Chelsea boot, including early fit pics and a video or two which we hope to shoot and post up tomorrow :nodding:

Man, some of those LBM guncheck fabrics look great, but even with the 2" additional length they're still a tad too short for me.

These are tagged as size 9? You think these fit more like a 9.5 or 10?

After I wore my unfinished HH high tennis trainers for a full first day, I did notice a little indigo bleed and small scuff marks. I had the jeans cuffed and they're indigo/beige-white (light weft).  They've only been washed once.  I was surprised at seeing the indigo bleed after just one wearing.  However, I am not complaining as I will embrace all the indigo bleed and scuffs and label it with the often overused term, patina.

 

For those that don't want the bleed or the color to change too much, I'd recommend treating them with some neutral cream or other to give as much of a protective shield as possible.  It might darken them slightly.  But one can't expect unfinished hide to remain that color.
