@jmaudi0 probably not, I think our Massdrop shoes will ship from PT right at the end of the month, meaning in your hands early August. 

 

The 7/24 deadline's not ideal, but we've been slamming the factory with orders, and since they've been a bit late a few of our previous group buys (Museum Calf, Massdrop, Chelsea Boots), I was breaking chops to get a hard and fast deadline for these orders. It will be the last sneaker group buys that we run for delivery in 2016.

I've been wanting some EP sneakers but hesitate because of width. I notice the description says, "If you take a wide fitting (US "E"), then we recommend the Sport Trainer, as its overall shape is more accomodating for wider feet. Extra-wide customers (US "EE" & "EEE") should consider sizing up a half to allow for extra width in the toe box."

"Sport Trainer" means the stingray, right?

Has anyone with EE+ feet tried a "size up by half" strategy with any of these trainers?

 

@seasquirrel the Sport Trainer absolutely works on guys with an E fitting - even in already-wide lasts like Tru-Balance. The original design of the German Army Trainer was meant to fit a large range of foot widths, so it lends itself to that well. 

 

I'd say this: 

 

1) If you can generally wear athletic sneakers off the shelf, then you probably do not need to size up. Even if these are tight on the first wear, they'll break in. 

 

2) If sneakers are always problematic and you can only wear things like New Balance in wide, then you'll want to add an extra 0.5 to the size here. They will be a bit long, but it's also a sneaker, and some extra length is not the big issue that it would be on a goodyear welt boot or so.

And care question for those who own the LBM 1911 Flax Chinolino - do you guys dryclean?  Or wash gently in cold and airdry?  Wasn't sure what the best plan was for the jacket.... 

 

@AloysiusSF you can definitely cold wash and hang dry that jacket - it was garment dyed and already washed like crazy.

Hey guys, here's links to all of the preorders. Everything is open until 7/24. 

 

First up is the white sneaker project. The White Tennis trainer is our best-selling shape by a mile, so I set up this preorder to customize it with (1) your choice of sole and (2) your choice of heel cap. The final price is $20 less than stock. You can also order sizes 6 through 13, so it's a good opportunity to get a pair if you don't wear our stock sizes. 

 

There's a $30 upcharge for shell cordovan and stingray heel caps. If you want a Teak Shell Cordovan cap or a Stingray cap, you'll want to order pretty quickly, we're down to about 12 slots for teak and 19 for Stingray. Stock is fine on all of the other leathers. 

 

 

WHITE TENNIS TRAINER SUMMER 2016 PREORDER PROJECT

 

Next up is the third round of Unfinished Horsehide trainers. We introduced these last Summer and it's become a huge product for us. Genuine front quarter horsehide that you break in and darken yourself with wear. Choose from four shapes: 

 

UNFINISHED HORSEHIDE TRAINERS SUMMER 2016 PREORDER PROJECT

 

And last is round two of our Stingray Sport Trainer preorder. This is arguably the coolest sneaker on Earth. The skin is also waterproof and freaking tough as hell. Quite a few guys on here own a pair - it's really exceptional. We've sold about five since the newsletter, so around 19 slots are left:

Tennis high isn't showing up as one of the options for Horsehide.

Will the children's sweaters be around the same time? Not that it's a rush on that one, she's currently 3.5 months old lol
post #54981 of 57678
@Epaulet totally agree. I'm back and forth between teak trim and ecru sole and stingray trim and grey sole

Tower ATC here, so that's my excuse for buying GMT watches. At least that's what I tell myself.

Picked up the white and light blue Somelos shirts, and the olive ripstop and blue steel chinos. Figured it made more sense to get some off-the-rack stuff from Epaulet before spending so much on the MTM stuff. Speaking of which, when do the fall EFF begin? biggrin.gif

I'm a big fan of all of the pieces (and I'll be picking up more Somelos shirts!), but I have an issue with the blue steel chinos: is there material to let out the thighs at all? The fit of the ripstop is absolutely fine, but the blue steel is far too tight in the thighs and seat; I'm actually afraid it'll split if I crouch down.

@Epaulet I wear a 10.5 4E in New Balance SL-1 last (have to size up to 11 4E on other NB lasts), and a 9 EEE in Alden Trubalance, so understandably I'm a little terrified of preordering sneakers without trying them on. I suppose I'll have to get down to Los Angeles at some point. biggrin.gif

Solid summer pick-ups.

Oxford cloth for pants sews up notoriously small in my opinion. Only negative on the new cut rivet is not having that split waistband. Makes it easy to size up and take in the waist/ass. Everything else about the new cut is a plus.

Wondering about this as well. I have a pair of oxford cloth rivets from a few years back that have just been laying around since they're so much tighter than all my other rivets. Maybe it's something to do with the oxford?

All the shrivet talk has me thinking about turning them into shorts but if they're tight as pants I imagine they're way too tight for shorts.

There are so many Google images I'd like to post right now...

Well, damn. I tried on the ripstop first, and since they fit fine, I just took the tags off both pairs. At least I know for next time.

Thanks.

I think I already know the answer but I'll ask anyway...any chance you will ever be able to offer any of the sneakers in size 14? I tried the unfinished HH sport trainer in size 13 on the last go-round of pre-orders, but they were just a tad too snug on me. I really like the white tennis trainer with the ecru sole, but I'm afraid even in size 13 they'd be uncomfortable on my feet.
