Well now that just fucks things up. PM
post #51572 of 58682

I've not seen any in the wild pics of the combat boots.

 

Could one of you nice folks please post a pic?

 

I'm wondering if the last is too narrow for my perception of a combat boot. They are super nice but to me they sorta looks like the Viberg 2030.

 

Thank you!

@CanadaCal @eljlakers

 

I don't recommend Nike, New Balance, or Adidas as a reliable sizing base for our sneakers. Nike is especially all over the place. I take a 9.5 in flyknits, a 10 in old Jordans, a 10.5 in some newer Jordans and Huraches. Adidas is also really inconsistent. 

 

Construction-wise, these are made like sneakers were made 40-50 years ago. So they're best compared against a simple style like the Chuck Taylor or Jack Purcell. If you don't have a shop around you, consider ordering a pair or two of Jack Purcell lowtops from Zappos. Free shipping and free returns right thurr. You might end up keeping a pair anyway, as Jack Purcell's are always a nice thing to have.

@gyasih yes, although two conditions: 

 

1) We can only do the Tennis Low or Tennis High. Those are the only styles that I have lasted in women's sizes. 

 

2) Since you're local, I would really encourage her to come in and get fitted in person. Womens shoe sizing is unbelievably inconsistent. Unless she owns European made sneakers that more or less look like these, then the chances of our sizing jiving with other stuff in her collection is low. And I don't want her to be disappointed with an amazing pair of Museum Calf shoes which don't work. So we're only offering this to women who are fitted in person or women who already own a pair of our shoes.

@rydenfan you're very much a boot guy, and I know that you have the horsehide sport trainers. Worth nothing that the Combat Boot can be resoled. I'd choose the Combat for you if it was up to me.

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?

 

Do the 9.5, I think that's right. You could be either 9 or 9.5, but the 9.5 is very safe. If it's big, then it won't be big by much @CanadaCal

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.

 

@metranger8694 I'd say both gunmetal and mocha are equally versatile. Hard to beat a dark brown boot for versatility. 

 

That said, where do you (1) find a grey boot and (2) find a grey MUSEUM CALF boot? 

 

I'd say to go with Gunmetal, no contest.

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

The green massdrop shoe is dope too.

 

@tricky I'm actually going to advise the Combat Boot for you too. I think that it would fit really nicely into your lineup, as you've got four pairs of sneakers already. Combat in Gold or Gunmetal IMO

@wj4 treat the calfskins and the red grain leather like a dress shoe. I'm not personally familiar with those two things, but Saphir makes a nice saddle soap. We don't carry it, but a lot of other retailers do. 

 

Although, I'd actually first recommend natural baby wipes with no additives. I have a toddler, so these are always at the ready for me. I haven't used actual Saddle Soap in years as a simple baby wipe generally takes all of the dirt off. Give it a shot.

To Mike, or anyone else really - I noticed that the new Rivet chino has a rise of 10.25" and the Walt has a rise of 10"...I used to have problems at the top block with the old rivets (I have a long torso and the low rise was uncomfortable for me), but I was OK with Walts. Should I expect a fit with the new Rivets that are similar in the top block to the Walts? Thanks.

As someone living in Europe, is it possible to have it arranged so that if I order a pair of Ilcea Radica-shoes that they get shipped straight from Portugal to me, instead of travelling back and forth over the Atlantic?

 

Nevermind, I should've read the full terms.

I really only wear boots now so I kopped the Gunmetal combat boots. And the matching belt.

 

For good measure, I also bought the Canclini Purple Speckled Herringbone Shirt. Looks like a pretty cool fabric. To change things up a little, I went with the 2 button cuff. That will be a first for the ol' wardrobe.

 

Great stuff Mike!

I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. I couldn't tuck shirts into the old rivets but no issue with the new ones.

@worakl

 

You're good to go! This is actually happening. 

 

Epaulet Europe will launch in about 10 days. Their starting assortment is:

 

Tennis Trainer White Calfskin

Tennis Trainer Black Calfskin

Tennis Trainer Loden Couro Cromo

Tennis Trainer Saddle Couro Cromo

Sport Trainer White Calf / Grey Suede

Sport Trainer Mocha Couro Cromo / Chocolate Suede

 

They will offer shipment throughout Europe and Asia. Their retails (including VAT) will be very close to ours and you'll be able to order easily within the continent. No import headaches and easy returns. We'll use them as our base for all European-made goods in the future - at least footwear and accessories. 

 

So any group buy items (Chelsea, Unfinished Horse, Museum Calf, Saffiano Bags) that are ordered from Europe will be directed to them for fulfillment.

Just unboxed mine and took these. Look and feel very Barrie like, if anything. Thought about going with the museum calf instead but these are perfect for my go-to business travel boots.

Going with gunmetal sports trainers.

Thanks dude!

 

To keep the Museum Calf p0rn going, allow me to present an old and neglected pair of Vass monks. Got them in Feb 2013 in Ilcea Gold Museum Calf. I've only used Renovateur for upkeep. 

 

 

Paired with some new socks from American Trench and one-off McGee Tweed Gables with the big cuff
