  • Epaulet x Styleforum Alpine Loden Collection

    Loden wool, woven in Tirol for centuries, is known for its resistance to cold and wetness. Our project in collaboration with Epaulet introduces Alpine Loden, a modern 18oz fabric blend of 75% merino wool and 25% nylon, woven in Italy. It's lighter, more durable, wind-resistant, and more comfortable than traditional Loden fabric. Partnering with Rochester Tailored Clothing, we offer custom garments like sportcoats, suits, and overcoats, made to your specifications. Learn more about the Loden collection here.

Mocha Suede Shanklins from @steveyoo1983 ... should have picked at least a couple other pairs ;-)

Anyone purchased the Leffot 10th anniversary EG Cardiff in #8 shell? I am toying with ordering them, was wondering if anyone has a pair they can share a review on.

Thanks.

Hi everyone,

There's no EG store near me so it'll have to be online purchases. Maybe someone can assist with sizing?

I'm an 8E in Alden and 7F (8E US) in Crockett and Jones.

Is 7.5 appropriate for EG? Thanks!

Yes-I take a 7 in CJ and 7.5 in EG. Most people size up a half-size from CJ to EG.
Here are my sizing as another reference point:
Brannock 9.5 C/D
Alden Barrie 9 D
C&J (325, 348) UK 8.5E
EG (82, 202) 8/8.5 E (long enough but a little small across the toes), or 8.5/9 E (for more room at toes)
Trickers (4497S) UK 8.5. Trickers (4444) UK8. Trickers (2298) UK8.5 or UK9 depending on toe box.
Vass (F) 42. Vass (Peter) 42.5.

Toward the end of last year (2018), I commissioned 3 semi-bespoke cap toe Oxfords, all in Burgundy antique, from three different makers. All done on “modified standard” lasts to varying degrees.

And the candidates are in. Who did it best?

1. St. Crispins Model 522B (design modified)
2. GC Cleverley’s Anthony Cleverly Nakagawa
3. Edward Green Cadogan 202C Last

Have they started making the last specific shoe trees? I just found these on eBay advertised as 888 last shoe trees?
