Mike, did you get my PM re: ordering a 38XL Caine hopsack? Want to get in on that order if I can.

Alden for Epaulet Natural Chromexcel Tanker and Brixton Boot
As promised, our SF thread is the first place to hear of our newest Alden makeups. This just in: our "Brixton" wingtip boot and a tough-ass Tanker boot in gorgeous Natural Chromexcel. These blew me away when they arrived. I've got a full size run in both, so grab a pair now if they catch your eye! They'll go up on Tumblr/Twitter/Newsletter in the next 1-2 days, and many of the sizes will most likely sell out this week.
Alden for Epaulet Natural Chromexcel Brixton Boot: $485
Barrie Last / Double Leather Soles / No Speed Hooks
Alden for Epaulet Natural Chromexcel Tanker Boot: $490
Tru-Balance Last / Commando Sole / Speed Hooks
Those look great.
Just received navy lambswool in Walt. My first pair of Epaulet trousers and sure to be the first of many.
Cut, fabric and construction are fantastic.
Great value and strikes that delicate balance between a sharp, modern slim-fit and a "respectable" not too "trendy" look for work.
UPS just delivered mine. The Navy is my sixth pair of Epaulet trousers and I think it's my favorite.
Ugggghhh can't pull the trigger on either one of those Alden's until I see these Carmina's that are on the horizon.
those brixtons look great.
Thanks for the heads up! Just got a pair of the tankers.
Agreed. I have suspended all shoe purchases until I see the Carmina for Epaulet collection.
this is kind of funny for me i had some epaulet chinos in 28 i washed them on hot and dryed on hot to get out all the length shrinkage before i'd get them hemmed 2 times in a week to make sure. i take them to the tailor she goes whats your regular inseam i told her usually 30 is good but do 31 on these knowing my luck they'd shrink some more later. she was like are you sure? i was like yes.
well i just washed the epaulet chinos again on cold and hanged dry yesterday put them on thought i was imaging that the break in the pants has changed. went to measure them they shrank to 30" lol. oh well looks even better now
not to mention a lot of the other dimensions went down slightly. yes i do use a tape measure regularly lol.
^how much have they shrink in waist?
its about 28" still but i always wear a belt i can double check again but wearing them right now.
