    It's very interesting that a lot of you guys are so into the shirts, sometimes more than the walts. I think the print shirts are awful and all my money is going to walts (10 pairs so far) and chinos (hoping to get 3 or 4 when Mike drops them in Feb). Not complaining because any business going Mike's way means more cool stuff for us, but it's weird. :foo:

    NYR is right as always. In addition to that, very serious scratches tend to be a good job for a deer bone.

    I used to think this was hocus pocus, but this video mostly convinced me otherwise.

    Lastly, for the puncture -- I'm very sorry to hear about that. That might be difficult to fix on your own. There are two things I would suggest. First, you could take your shoe to B. Nelson and/or Leather Spa and see what they say. It is possible, however not entirely likely, that they could patch the shoe in some way from the inside. Second -- and I might actually do this first -- I'd give the Fiebing leather company a call. They are a leather and horse care product manufacturer in Milwaukee, and make products not just for home shoe care, but for cobblers, shoemakers, and leatherworkers. Their resin-based "Kote" finishes are used by many (including me) to heal deep scuffs on shoe leather, although I have never used these products on shell cordovan. I would give them a call and ask their advice. In my experience, calling up leather care companies is actually a great way to get professional advice. I don't know their level of experience with shell, though, so take that for what it's worth. Good luck!

    Ah man, the holidays do catch up to you. First with bills, then with the scale.
    Dr. told me yesterday to drop 15lbs to get my BMI back down to acceptable levels.

    Bad news is I’m gonna miss the bourbon and onion rings. Good news is my Walts should fit much better and I can use all the saved up booze money for some spring phatness from Ep.

    I was haning out with Mike and we were shooting the shit about all sorts of things. Lot's of cool stuff in the works, both Epaulet, and Epaulet and Styleforum together. Pretty stoked, tbh. I'll let Mike fill you guys in.

    i would add that KG rocks those printed shirts hard. maybe it has something to do with the longer hair that he and James May pull it off so well, KG better than Capt. Slow in fact.

    Saw a guy with a buzz wearing a Liberty shirt in the shop the other day, and it looked great. Think it's more about your personality. Honestly underneath a sweater those Liberty shirts would look good on anyone.

    Good to hear you can wear the Walts with a borderline too-high BMI.

    Those look real nice! I finally wore my Indys in full snow and woke up this morning after going out last night and found a bunch of glass in the sole. Very nice to have in this case and no slippage in ice :slayer:

    anyone can comment on epaulet XL and gitman L? not sure if the 0.5 inch difference in p2p will affect the fit. gitman basically fits me good in chest but looking at alternatives.

    This may have been asked quite a while ago, but are there any plans in the future to offer alternative sleeve lengths on shirts (something in the standard 32/33 range)?

    I vaguely remember this being answered along the lines that it is easier to have the sleeves sized long, as one can always have them shortened but not lengthened. But, it would definitely be nice to not have to have every piece altered. Any recent change of mind on this, or perhaps even an option as a pre-order?

    I agree with this one. That and the short rise (or what looks like it from online photos/epaulet's measurements) are the only things that have held me back from trying them.
