    I have the Super 120s and the Hopsack, and the Hopsack is well worth the additional cost. The texture is awesome and great year round trousers for work. I wear them in 30C degrees or -40C degrees.

    I'll be ordering the Dove Grey Hopsack shortly.

    Rusty violet tweed has been ordered, as outlined above. I am a little sorry to pass on the oatmeal, but what Mike says makes sense. Still, I do love Donegal. Perhaps there will be more later.

    And to add to the chorus: the dove hopsack trousers are excellent.

    And some pics of me today. Bringing our Anglo-Italo style to Montana Ave something hard. I was definitely the only dude in a tie on line for ice coffee. Actually, this is pretty much the deal in Brooklyn and the LES. The other neighborhood merchants can always identify an Epaulet employee.

    Just what I was thinking. Time to start researching the F last and how it fits. Ideas, anyone?

    Mike is living the dream that most of us wish we'd had to guts to pursue.

    Seriously, I love what I do and would not trade it for anything but I appreciate guys like Mike and Adele who find a way to do what they love.

    Sure thing...

    F-LAST SIZING
    The Vass F-Last balances a slim and slightly tapered shape with a comfortable toe and a true medium width. It's makes for a brilliant dress shoe which still maintains the "substantial" look that Vass executes so well.

    For our Carmina customers, Vass F-Last sizing approximately works as such:
    Vass F-Last 42 = Carmina 8UK = US 9D
    For our Alden customers, Vass F-Last sizing approximately works with their lasts as such:
    Vass F-Last 42 = Alden Barrie or Trubalance Last 8.5D US = Alden Leydon, Aberdeen, Plaza 9D US.

    Of course, this sizing relativity may be different depending on the particular shape of your foot and how you prefer your shoes to fit. But we've found that this equation works well for most of our customers.

    We've got that same Double Monk on order in Oxblood calfskin. And I'm waiting to get availability on Dark Cognac Shell Cordovan (kind of like Cigar & Ravello had a child) to coordinate a possible group buy or stock order.

    Dang 400 for the harris tweed slim Walt might be a bit too much right now, can anyone suggest what would be the next warmest option for slim Walt's? Calgary winter is typically -10 to -30 in case anyones wondering :)

    definitely a solid fit. admire the burgundy/purple matching. I'm pissed I don't have any Santa Monica cases right now; would love to swing by after court and see if anyone at Starbucks on Montana says "hey, there was another one like you just 20 minutes ago..."
