    ^^Yes, I believe it is E that is narrow. F is medium. G wide. I wear Barrie 11D comfortably (and can wear 10.5E) and wear Carmina Forest 11UK or 10.5UK wide. Vass 45F (medium) fits me nicely on the New Peter Last with a little extra room in the length. I can also go with 44.5G.

    If you haven't found it yet, you might want to look through the Vass thread for NAMOR's sizing. I believe he's a similar size to you, at least in length. I recall him going with maybe a 45.5 in an F last shoe and then maybe even trying on 46 when he had the good fortune to visit the Vass shop in person.

    Good luck. The shoes are very very nice.

    Where in SC? I used to live in NC and though I think that Gloverall looks awesome, I'm pretty sure it would totally be overkill in the eastern side of the state, but would probably be great somewhere on the western side in the mountains. I don't think the western portion of SC is as mountainous or cool as NC and think that even in the coldest area of SC the jacket would probably be overkill most of the fall/winter.

    Do you have an ETA for the Barena sweater blazers?

    Where in NC? I live in Greenville which, as you may know, is in the "upstate" or western side of the staet and only about an hour or so from Asheville, 45 minutes from Clemson and around 1.5 hours from Charlotte and Atlanta. I love Greenville (great town, family and friends are here, and Clemson is close), but I've also lived in Charleston for three years and it's still my favorite city in the world.

    Thanks for the advice on the gloverall. That's exactly what I was thinking. We typically get some ice a few times during the winter, but last year (or maybe it was two winters ago) we didn't get a single bit of ice, sleet or snow. Snow is very rare, unless it's an inch or two tops and it'll melt in a day. I'll probably just stick to the car coat, or I may still give that size 38 veneto vest a try! Thanks again.

    I lived in Jacksonville, NC for about 4 years (on and off) when I was in the Marine Corps and Greenville for a semester at ECU before moving back to Michigan.

    FWIW, if you are interested in a Gloverall, you can usually find them fairly cheaply used on eBay (well under $100 shipped), and while they won't be as trim fitting as the Epaulet version, maybe a cheap-o used one wouldn't be a bad idea for something you would probably only wear a handful of times a year, and to keep handy for those wintertime trips to Chicago or Minneapolis.

    Thanks for the info Frank, this was very helpful. I think NAMOR is about a half size smaller than me, but I'll check his thread and try to make some comparisons there as well.

    Okay, so you know how the weather is here. That ebay idea isn't so bad, so I may look into that. We try to take one trip to somewhere like NYC, Boston or Chicago during the winter, so that would probably be the only time it would get used (or when we go to the mountains I guess). Thanks again for your help.

    The autumn speckle rivets arrived last night and they're amazing.

    Any idea if the new grey ash 10oz twill rivets are 1) comfortable to wear during hot (80-90F) and humid days and 2) are as easy to dress down as the duck canvas rivets? (I'm guessing no on both accounts...).

    That horsehide jacket... Just amazing! Too bad I just picked up a toj earlier this year. Will this be a stock item in the future? Because every man needs a jacket like that right :)

    Both of these are medium-weight wool jackets (around 22-24oz). I'd say that they would work for a winter in SC or over here in SoCal. Provide you're not layering underneath them, you'll probably want temps in the high 50's. And of course most guys take a trip or two somewhere colder, where these can be put more into action.

    I wouldn't say that there's a big difference in warmth between the two styles. The Car Coat has been one of our best-selling jackets since 2009. It's a great price, made in Canada, and really solid. We've sold literally hundreds of them to area guys in NYC as their Fall/Winter coats. Gloverall jackets are phenomenal duffle coats, and the fit on this one is really dialed in. Their traditional fit (like the Monty model) is really boxy. If you have shorter arms then you can size down on it, but often the sleeves end up being too short when you do that - and the armholes always look big.

    If you're in the market for a solid coat, you don't need it for most of the season, and the Duffle isn't specifically calling you, then the Car Coat is fantastic.


    Should be shipping from Italy on Mon-Tues, and received here about 4-5 days after that. We're really anxious for them!


    I love Charleston too - what a beautiful city that is.


    No to the first one and yes to the second. These are more of a Fall weight chino, along the lines of a medium-weight jean. They are easy to dress down though. I'd say that this is one of the more casual fabrics that we've run in the Rivet Chino

    Thanks! Well, we'll see how it performs and we'll certainly reorder it if it does well. The only issue is the leather - we waited about 10 months to actually get it, so restocks would probably be more intermittent here



    Thank you sir! We've been completely nutzo building all of this stuff out this week.

    Wyatt Motorcycle Jacket in Horween Horsehide

    It's here! Our banded collar motorcycle jacket made in the real-deal-Holyfield of horsehide leather. We ordered in a medium weight, so this jacket isn't too heavy, it still drapes properly, and it doesn't need to be broken in. You get the awesome wear and patina of horsehide without the crazy stiffness for half a year. We love it!

    Just bought this one! Wonder what kind of unique variations will come with it, look forward to that extra bit of character. Any comments on how the color changes (lightens?) with age? Upkeep tips?

    Thank you sir! The color is going to change quite a bit with age - you'll notice a pronounced lightening at the stress and movement points. It will be able to fade and change without cracking. And a really great thing about horsehide and shell cordovan is the way that a little bit of care will bring it back to life.

    No real tips needed for upkeep. I'll use something like Pecard's dressing once or twice a season. It's pretty low maintenance! My only suggestion is to wear it as much as possible.

    Veneto Vest Fit

    I burned some midnight oil on the newsletter last night, so I've got an easy going look tonight. This is taken in the strange "Melrose Place"-like courtyard of my apartment building here:

    Vest is looking good! Makes me want to try that size 38. I also like the coke gmt master as well (I think that's what's on your wrist). : )
