    Mike, would you consider bring the Brixton boot with Alpine grain leather? I'd jump on that for my foul-weather-sleek-looking-boot.

    Great pickup! I'd start with a light application of the light brown Saphir Cream Polish.

    The hanger project has a
    nice little guide.

    Enjoy!!

    I've been staying away from wax polish too. More of a pain than it's worth IMO

    Hatch grain is essentially a thick workboot leather. I'd stay away from wax completely. Renovateur is a great product on the high end, or you could use simple Lexol conditioner as a cheaper option.
    I'm open to that, but we'll just be able to offer the Taunton boot for this round.
    I generally just use cream on my dress shoes. Wax shines are nice, but they're higher maintenance and show scuffs really easily.
    We have a pretty good stock amount coming in, but I'll be happy to take a reservation for you. As long as you're one of our stock sizes (8-12), it wouldn't be final sale or anything. You'd just be guaranteed that unit when it arrives. I have a lot coming in each style, but it is a little unpredictable. Our first run moved really fast. The last one didn't sell nearly as quick, but this November to Feb period is usually the low point of selling for sneakers and lighter footwear.
    Agreed - that fit is fantastic!
    Glad that you like them! It's been really exciting that the Distressed Wilshires did well. I kind of had no expectations on it, but I think that they do a great and very realistic fade. Thanks for picking them up.
    Haha wow. Most guys have already taken a refund on that pre-order. Just drop me an email with you details and paypal address. I'll shoot you over the funds but still keep you on a priority list if and when they ever arrive

    Finally got these back from my tailor. Just took in the backs and move the front button. Paired with EP flecked button down and EP flannel button down.

    No spoiler because those fits are amazing. The olive goldenrod looks spectacular and the oatmeal donegal is just something else.

    Wow.

    Cross post with the Alden thread. Epaulet charcoal fleck donegal tweed pants. Not sure how I feel about the cuffs - I think I will ditch them. Are there any suggested rules for cuffs on pants?

    I've been meaning to post these pictures for awhile. The topic of custom Epaulet x Gitman wedding shirts has come up a few times so I thought I'd post mine. I just emailed Mike with the specs I was looking for and he sent back some additional fabric options. I'm very happy with how it turned out. Here's the final details:

    Standard epaulet fit, size medium
    White Royal Oxford fabric
    Full-size point collar
    No chest pocket
    Full hidden placket
    Regular french cuff

    Sportcoats look brilliant @tricky. It already had the EddieMcZee stamp of approval, the highest accolade available for an SC, but that windowpane is really. good. And thah moto fit... You said that was a little out of your usual zone right? Don't look anything but tough there.

    And @wj4 that fit is nice. I like that coat.

    And monkey see monkey do, donegal tweed for some errands:

    Size 9 in an all white low would be amazing. You're the best Mike!

    Wanted some advice from you guys.

    Going to Oklahoma by the end of this month for a few days. Being from the LA area I want to make sure I'm prepared for the weather.

    Got the Schott peacoat from the sale section not to long ago.

    Just ordered a EPLA sweatshirt to go under it.

    Epaulet Flannels.

    Epaulet Wilshires.

    Heattech undershirt/long johns to go under all of it.

    Will I be alright? Trying to travel light.

    Thoughts? Do I need gloves? Scarf?

    No offense, but you've packed for Minnesota and not Oklahoma. I know us Angelenos have a low cold tolerance but think Bay Area packing and not the frigid northeast. The peacoat and sweatshirt should be fine. No need for longjohns. It's in the mid-50s.
