    Did you account for stretch in the CXL belts? How will they be sized/tagged? If it's not part of your design then I would need to order a 28.
    I got a burgundy CXL belt from Tanner Goods in my usual size (30) without reading the description. It has stretched a LOT and I have to use the last hole, leaving an awkwardly long tail. Willing to part with it if anyone's interested -_-

    I've been lazy with cleaning so here goes. My collection has gone from AE only to EP Carminas and now have EP Aldens coming.

    Carmina double monks at my office so not shown.

    The AE have become great crappy weather shoes and I still love the Strands.

    What next?

    Hey Bud,

    I have today off so I just want to post again :)

    I didn't pick that piece up alas.

    I started a new job a while back. Working odd hours at times and pace is too quick for me to post like I did. This is why I went on a hiatus.

    Hope the epaulet gents are well! Friendliest gang on the board IMO.

    Your looks are by far the most drastic here - from ultra casual to super sharp. Well done!

    Great collection buddy. I suggest you start investing in Alden shell, boots and shoes. Maybe EG as well :nodding:

    Yeah I think shell is next although EG may be a league I'm not quite ready to play in.

    I have one pair of shells (red-ish Carmina boots) but I've hardly worn them so I'm not really familiar with the leather.

    I will VERY rarely ever buy a non-shell shoe anymore....shell has such great patina and are so easy to take care of.

    Cool, thanks. I think that's the direction I'll go in. Unlike a lot of the shoe guys on SF, I love shoes but I don't love polishing them. If I can get away with a cloth and jar of renovateur then I'm set!

    Those shorts you are wearing, are they from Epaulet? I can't seem to find them on the website.

    Also, has anyone tried the tees? Thoughts? It's very hard to buy tees online given how hard it is to get the shoulders right etc.

    I find the v-neck style fits me real well and corresponds to their other medium shirts and 38R sizes well.

    The EPLA mediums are quite tight in the same size. I will try them in large next.

    Tees are highly recommended. I'm 40/L and L tees work well for me.

    EP sizing has been really consistent for me.

    Glad you posted this, FC. I was just going to PM and ask the question. Thanks!

    You are a few inches taller than I am I think, so to clarify, I wear a 40R in EP jackets and a Large in stuff tagged that way. Large tees work well for me too. The Henley actually seems to fit a little longer than others. Gives it a nice kind of flowing drape without being out there.

    Thanks, that was my only concern. I might give the henleys a shot.

    If Mike and Co. aren't careful, the Feds are soon going to start running ops against them for pushing one of the most potent gateway drugs on the market.

    Thanks @eddiemczee...hard at work all summer, but now that the school year is back in full swing (well, in a couple of days anyway) you'll see me more often. Glad to be back!
