    Did that to a pair -- it works but it's not optimal as it affects the other leg measurements...

    Alden x Epaulet Natural CXL Longwing (97871), Leydon.

    Currently starting wear #1 of Mac break in method. Oh, how I hope these babies fit. Love the color and various subtleties across the shoe - exactly what I was looking for in a casual LWB.

    Many shout outs to Mike, Adele and the whole crew!

    El Argentino, excellent fit on the RCs, and well done on the natural CXLs. I have them and love how the color has changed. And I much prefer the fit of the Leydon to the Barrie.

    3 separate wearings of an hour each while only on carpet to assess sizing. Helps nail down fit while not putting wear on the shoe.

    @Abecedarian, thank you

    I absolutely love mine, and agree the fit of the Leydon last is far superior for me. They really start to change in appearance after a few wearings. I brush mine after each outing, and it really helps even out the finish. Mine are way darker now compared to the way look when new (above).

    Anyone know how the old Liberty fabric shirts compare in size to the newer casual button ups?

    To ensure the shoes fit you properly.

    Just ordered my first Epaulet pants, got the Walts in Regiment Twill Navy and Rivets in Duck Canvas Moss.

    Do you guys with around a 32/33" inseam get your Walts tailored or can they be cuffed?

    These look fucking incredible. Really nice photography / great use of sunlight.

    Break-in method sounds incredibly pedantic; I would just throw these on and go for it but I suppose if you're really worried about exact sizing then it's worth it to be careful on more expensive purchases.

    While I realize there's no real way to answer this since everyone's different, at what height would you say someone should consider your Long sportcoat? looking for a ballpark number here.

    For Epaulet jackets, I'd say if you're 6'2" or over you'd probably need a long, unless you like a really cropped look on your jackets. I'm 6'4" and the length on an Epaulet long works well for me. But again, like you said this will vary from person to person.

    So you wear it for 3 hours over multiple days, then decide if the fit's for you? I'd hate to buy that return.

    I'm not really picky about the fit. I think I've returned 2 pairs of shoes out of the 45ish I bought because they were .5 too large, which I was able to detect from the moment I slipped them on. I've been on the receiving end before I think. I bought a pair of shoes, and the leather bottom was kind of scratched up...but I liked the shoes and they fit fine so I didn't mind.

    isn't it also to soften up the sole so that it's not as stiff and thus reduces the amount of early wear towards the front of the sole?
