    I think it depends on how much wider the shoulders are than what is ideal for you. I have a couple of the LBM 1911 SC's and they are both about an inch wider in the shoulders than what is ideal for me. But I think they look fine. However, any more than an inch or maybe 1.5", might be too much and as you say, might look droopy.

    I do like the LBM 1911 blazers very much and recommend them.

    To echo others: I love EP's Large shirts - they're very fitted. I take a 41 in EP jackets. Any larger and I would likely size up on shirts. At a 42 otr, I would believe an XL would work out best for you in shirting.

    Spiewak N3-B snorkel parka secured tonight. And lots of other temptation - especially the new denim and some TBA stuff. :) Thanks Mike - can't wait for it to get cold enough for this coat (again)!

    Agree with all this. Same experience.

    I ordered the Mocha Flannel a couple days back, tracking said it arrived in Bell Gardens CA. I was curious where that was so I googled it. Turns out the post office there had a one star rating. I clicked. Half an hour and countless reviews latter I learn that hundreds of others have had packages, delayed, lost, or possibly stolen from this location. A local reporter claimed to be investigating. One man ordered boots, his package arrived opened with a previously worn completely different pair of shoes. Someone traded up I guess. Dozens had sought to rectify their situations with USPS, none with success. Hopeful that internet reviews always exaggerate I checked the ratings of a few local post offices. Nothing of the like.

    I fear for my shirt. Anyone else ever have a package come through there?

    For those that don't normally venture outside this thread, but may be interested, I just finished my massive Tahoe New Years 13 post in WAYWT. Some Epaulet items are featured, including the barely visible blue OCBD shown above. And yes, there are plaid pants.

    I live in L.A. and pretty much all my stuff is routed through Bell Gardens. I've yet to have an incident. I don't know how many orders I've placed at this point (more than I can count on my hands and probably toes) and I've received everything in perfect condition.

    Hey Mike,

    I dropped you guys an e-mail yesterday about some stitching issues I've experienced on some rivet chinos. I usually get a super fast response (from Adele, typically) and I'd really like some feedback.

    Thanks!

    Can I ask when Rivets in caramel duck are getting restocked?

    If you're in the USA you may consider calling them too. Really friendly folks. I actually have their numbers stored on my cell phone.

    I think based on his earlier post about the southwick swatches that Mike is on a plane from NY to LA today.

    Yeah I get at least a package through there once a week (probably ~100 total) and never an issue

    I see Mike being handcuffed to a briefcase that is holding the swatches while traveling.
