    I'd wait to see what the actual product is and Mike's recommendations first. Maybe they fit like the more recent trainers. Maybe not.

    So if I a 34 CXL belt is 1/2" too small, should I wait and let it stretch out? OR get a 36 and cut it to size.

    I think you should let it stretch out to 34. I ordered a size 34 and it seemed small for a 34 until I remembered that CXL stretches. It now fits perfect after 2~3 wears. Of course, getting a 36 and cutting it to size would work too, and that would guard against it possibly not stretch enough for whatever reason.

    Sorry if I missed this, but will there be a restock of natural CXL belts in the popular 32 and 34 sizes?

    Yeah I probably would have gone with the 34 had I realized. However I'm sure it won't be a problem getting it cut down. Not sure where best to take it. Think a cobbler would be the best bet?

    I can do it myself with the right tools. I am returning a Navy 34 CXL belt. Ill wait to see what others say.

    I tried asking about the CXL belt thing like three times on here but I never got an answer =\
    For me sizing down isn't even an option. I could only buy one if it were designed to stretch.

    I apologize if this is an obvious question but for folks who are sporting the Epaulet shawl cardigans: If you leave the top 2(or more) buttons unbuttoned, will the shawl collar continue to fold out on down?

    If anyone feels inspired to post a casual pic like that I would be most appreciative.

    Thanks!

    FWIW I haven't noticed any significant stretching in any of my CXL belts from EP.

    I ordered a pair of Benjos boot laces for my Carmina jumpers and the tips of the laces wouldn't fit through the metal eyelets.

    Does anyone have a rec for good boot laces to replace the crappy Carmina ones, but that will still fit through Carmina eyelets?

    With all the $400 Horween leather New Balance showing up, can't wait to see the shell sneaker here. The NB will make it seem like a bargain...and I won't comment on any of the NB designs.

    So if i get a heirloom cardigan, which color would be the most versatile? I'm assuming its between navy and charcoal, the navy would be better for Spring/Fall and the charcoal better for winter, but if I'm only getting one, which would be most versatile?

    I was in your position deciding between navy/charcoal. I went with navy. Thought it looked more classic, but I'm also biased because blue is my favorite color.

    Blue is my favorite color as well, which means half my wardrobe is blue. I really wish it came in a nice autumn red/rust color. Grey is a little drab, which means I'll likely pass on these.
