    Man, I really want to jump on one of the flannels but I've never actually sized myself for an epaulet shirt. Wj4, you say a small fits your 5'10" frame, but how big are you in the chest, and in the waist, and and around the armholes? I'm 5'10" but a slender fellow even by those standards, so I often get screwed in one or more of these categories.

    For reference the absolute perfect fit for me is Kamakura's Tokyo Slim 15-33 1/2 (If only they had a wider selection!). A Taylor Stitch 36 fits but its sleeves are a hair short, and the body is also short. Brooksbrothers ESF in small is also ok, but is more generous in the waist than is optimal. Do you think I should jump for a small or wait for the MTO program to start back up?

    I'm 160 lbs. 37" chest. True waist around my belly is 32". Not sure about other specs.

    Wish epaulet shirts fit me....

    6'1 180 and i would need a XL for the chest but the sleeves and neck are huge so it looks weird on me.

    I'll stick to walts and rivets for now.

    Jacket is bespoke and from fabric that was sponged in 1927...so possibly even older than that!

    Yeah, as I feared you're a bit bigger than I am on each measurement. I'd probably be better buying a small I can return to size myself. Thanks.

    ^ that's quite a haul. You definitely need to wear the caramel rivets and duck canvas jacket as a full suit and post pics here

    I find the caramel Napoli and caramel duck rivets work much better as separates :)

    But both are awesome pieces!
