Mass drop is a good vale. But museum is so unique. I'm pretty sure it's gunmetal or gold lows for me.

I'm thinking perhaps plum running trainer. Anyone have experience with the running trainers?

The green massdrop shoe is dope too.

Have the teak running trainers, and love them. Love the shape. Very comfortable.

Torn between another pair in navy museum or the green GATs...and I really don't need more sneakers.

Cool thanks. I think adding a running trainer will be dope.

I use a damp cloth and bit of Saphir. But I really only wear kicks on sunny dry days so I very rarely clean them.

@Epaulet, I may have missed it, but do you have leather swatches in the Manhattan store.

3 of 5 received, awaiting the lighter weight jackets now - Loro Piana Navy w/White Windowpane and the Bright Blue Large Pique (ordered as a Double Breasted w/white MoP buttons)...

 

 

@unclesam099 - Great, glad that things are landing safely! Can't wait to see how the DB made up.

@badsha yup, just place your $110 deposit now and then pay the balance when they arrive. The balance payment will be lesser or greater depending on the model that you choose.

I'm a Brannock 11.5; Narrow side of D, Nike 12, Viberg 10.5 and the Alden Alt Weins on a 10.5 Barrie were perfect.

 

Should I order a size 11 on the high top trainers?
 

I don't wear sneakers much anymore, being a boot guy, but those mocha museum calf high tops would have me tossing almost all of my pairs of sneakers.

 

Thanks.

 

@metranger8694 very cool! We've actually sold a LOT of the Tennis High. I nearly didn't make that an option as only two guys ordered it on our last round of Unfinished Horsehide. But we've moved around 30 pairs in museum as of yesterday. 

 

So, width wise you're going to be fine. You'd either be 11 or 11.5. I'd order an 11, but if you have a chance, try on a pair of Jack Purcell lowtops. We based the pattern off that, so if you can take an 11 in those comfortably you should be GTG.

May I ask about the durability of the zipper on the combat boots?

Also, in case the zipper is spoilt, may the zipper be replaced either by a cobbler/tailor? 

 

@tianki thanks for asking. You know, this is honestly the first zippered boot that we've ever offered. We sold about 150 pairs and I haven't received a single complaint about them. We're using RiRi zips from Switzerland, which are known as some of the best in the business. Man, they're certainly the most expensive!

 

I wouldn't worry about it, you shouldn't have any issues with the zippers. And I'd say that the average cobbler can fix a broken zipper without a problem. All of our local cobblers are working on 90% women's shoes all of the time. Women buy more shoes, and they often buy shoes that are made horribly. And zippers are very common on those, so I expect it's a routine part of their job.

Mike (@Epaulet) and guys, will you help me choose on the Massdrop GATs order? Which do you recommend - all white or white/grey? I have some of the original Epaulet GATs in the cognac and they are by far my favorite sneakers. I've been wanting to pick up some Margiela GATs and Common Projects achilles lows in all white, but now I'm starting to think why should I spend that much money when I can get fantastic quality with Epaulet for $100s less...? Anyway, I'm also considering jumping in on the pre-order for the gold museum. GATs or tennis? Can't decide. TIA!

 

@Mr Clemson thanks for asking. Couple thoughts from my side: 

 

1) Glad that you're digging the original GAT's! Our current model is made in a different factory and everything about the leather and construction is upgraded from those initial styles. The sizing is different too. The original GAT ran large, so you'll want to order our new items true to size. They are not consistent with the old sneakers. 

 

2) I understand and respect the power of branding - especially in a product like sneakers. It's an extremely name-driven and generally youthful part of the business. But for all practical considerations (leather, sewing, lasting, fit) I would contend that the Museum Calf sneakers are the best product on the market, period. Not even "the best for the price." Genuine Ilcea radica leather is absolutely gorgeous, and these sneakers are radiant. So you're not only saving a few hundred bucks, you're also getting the literally best thing out there. 

 

3) A good retailer always answers "get 'em both" but that may be good advice in this case :) 

 

The museum calf product is really special. If anyone has ever used this for a sneaker, I've never seen it. It has a very unique look and character and is sort of a menswear silver bullet. About half of our overall sales have been in the Combat Boot, as guys also like this as a more trad style. 

 

The Massdrop project is a great value proposition. At $175, the Sport Trainer is really the best sneaker that you can get your hands on for that money. You could really wear any of them casually. I expect that we'll sell the alabaster and classic white/grey the best.

I do have a pair of Jack Purcell 11's and they are a bit too small in length.

So 11.5 it is.

I think gunmetal will be more versatile than mocha, which is incredible as well.

Forgot to post here. My EFF navy sportcoat

Ugh can't decide between gold/gunmetal/loden tennis trainer.
post #51565 of 57858
I went with gunmetal tennis trainer low.
It was that or gold, and while I think the gold is more wearable I just love that gunmetal.

For my own assurance I went with a 9.5. It's my Nike, Stan Smith size. 9 in Chucks. Never had a Jack Purcell but Google/hype beast promptly advised me not to take my Chuck size. Am I right?

For anyone who is a size 9... http://epauletnewyork.com/collections/sale/products/fc-high-trainer-couro-cromo-steerhide-saddle-navy. I'm surprised no one has kopped them at that price the past couple days.

Yeah, 9.5 sounds right to me based on everything you've outlined.
post #51568 of 57858

so torn...sprot trainer or combat boot. I love the look of the sport trainer but I prefer the fit of the tennis low slightly more. Never tried a combat boot but seems like it would be great for traveling and this leather suits it well. hhhmmm

post #51569 of 57858
@Epaulet can a women's size be made? My wife is really digging these.
