If you haven't had a chance, check out the thread dedicated to our Massdrop Sport Trainer project. I updated it with a pair of mockups....

 

 

 

 

@Epaulet, a few of us in the Wide Footed forum were wondering if any of these could be made up in a wide (E, EE, etc.) fitting?  It's near impossible to find a trainer that comes in a wide fit.  Thanks!

@Sudonihm actually, these are a great fit for a wider foot. We've successfully sold a lot of them to guys who take a wide fitting. It's the beauty of the German Army Trainer pattern. 

 

If you take an "E" width in something like Alden then you should be fine. I'd caution against ordering if you take wider than that in Alden. 

 

For trimmer shoes (Allen Edmonds, Carmina, Edward Green), you should be good with these if you take a wide or double-wide. I'll let @EP Sam respond to this as well from his personal experience.

@Sudonihm I'll echo Mike's sentiments on the sport trainers.  I have a wide foot (between an e and eee fitting depending on the last) and they are a great fit for me.  These are actually my most comfortable shoes and I wear them when I need a break from dress shoes.

 

On another note, some great new stock shirts came in from Gitman and New England.

 

The clutch Solid Persian Blue Linen (David is very happy about this one)

 

The Gitman tropical check - this thing is coming with me to Hawaii next week :slayer:

And the crimson forest madras from New England - this is actually my first experience with madras cloth and I'm rather impressed. Great colors here too, super easy to match.

Hmmm. Thanks for this! I'm a 10.5 EE Barrie, 10.5 E TruBalance and 11 E Hampton in Alden and a 10.5 EEE Carmina Detroit.

 

I may be on the cusp of being too wide. Maybe I'll try on a pair when I pick up my Southwick EFF. Do you stock them in the Smith Street store?

Yeah, I'll bet you're on the edge.

 

As another example of Mike's point that the GATS will work an E though, I'm a 10E barrie and the unfinished horsehides fit me very well at 10.5

Yup, agreed with @avsmusic1 - it will probably work, but might not. "E" in Tru-Balance and Hampton is encouraging though. If you can fit them in person that that's always the best route. 

 

And note that they can and will break in on the width and height. If anyone wore the Sport Trainer and found it ultimately too narrow, then I've never heard of it. Generally sneakers can yield quite a bit in the width. It's more likely that we take a return because the customer is afraid of wearing them and not confident that they will actually give in the width. But any sneaker made with good top-grain leather will.

@Epaulet - if an EFF jacket came out a bit different than I had ordered it, what's the potential resolution and whom should I contact?

 

I responded to Sam in an old email, but wasn't sure if that's the most sensible route.

The Wednesday new stuff assault continues! Got some 11th hour exclusive swatches from Individualized and added them to the Spring 16 casual shirting category. 15% off these lasts until midnight tomorrow. 


And I'll tell you this: doing a Seersucker shirt with an unexpected collar is absolutely freaking baller.

Looks great - I ordered the same fabric so I hope this means mine is on its way as well!

@believeland Hey, looks like we had a factory error on this one, sorry about that!  I received your email late this morning but you have a reply from me in your inbox now.

Ah, just saw it now. Thanks!

Wow, those look rad. Unspoilered for effect.

Glad I dragged my feet on picking casual fabrics.

Did I miss the shirt measuring guide?

@Todd V nope, just dragging my heels on it. I just put this guide online, it's a little bit quick n' dirty so please excuse the lousy lighting and wrinkles. 

 

Hit me with these five measurements and we can get most of the crucial dimensions. 

 

The two things which are a little bit harder are body shaping and sleeve diameter. 

 

If you wear our jackets and upper-body clothes fine then don't worry about the sleeve. We order a trim, tailored sleeve, but it's not skinny. If you don't wear our stuff and your upper arms are bigger than 16" or so, we'll get you a regular sleeve. You'll know if you need the regular sleeve though - most Styleforum-area clothing is going to be too tight on your arms. 

 

The waist of the shirt can be adjusted for a bigger or a smaller drop. Most of the guys here wear our standard shirt drop just fine. If you've got a big to waist taper we can make it more aggressive. If you have some weight around the middle we can make it less so. Best way to determine this is to get two fit photos of you wearing the shirt from the front and side. And your normal jacket and waist size. 

 

You can disregard this if you own clothing from us now - stuff like the Doyle, Thedi, Golden Bear jackets, Southwick, etc. If you fit into those jackets and outerwear pieces, then the standard drop is probably going to be right on. a

Measuring for Individualized Shirts

What are the possible increments? For example to the body length can we go with 31.5"? I ask because the drop down menus are +/- 1" for that I recall. And the EP XL is 31" long...
