    Epaulet has the same fit and measurements for pretty much every shirt. Gitman Vintage fit and measurements differ substantially not only between shirt styles, but also in the same shirt between seasons. Hence why Epaulet has different measurement charts on its site for each GV shirt. Not much point trying to create a rule to translate sizing between the two brands really.

    Some poor pictures of my sexiest shoe... the Carmina shortwing in chestnut cordovan. Tried to make the first one close to the true color.

    Is it just me or the shape in the first pic is a bit odd, like the shoe is too narrow for the foot?

    I've got a pair of 33s I'll be returning shortly. Maybe that will help you out

    That statment was based on someone elses stated experience who returned their gitman for the epaulet, can't remember who it was, I'll see if Epaulet has a 2xl and if not I'll have to look for a Gitman XL and give that a shot, thanks guys.

    Hey Mike,

    You stated that tongue pads can be used to minimize or eliminate heal slippage. What are your thoughts about the heal strips (I'm not sure if those are the proper words, but it's the strip of leather/suede you put on the back of the shoes to eliminate slipping)? Thanks!

    This has been my experience as well. It completely screwed me up because I had purchased a few GVs in S after deciding that was my size in Epaulet, and both fit me well. A season or two later, I found some other GVs were bigger and others were smaller; I just couldn't be sure any more.

    I'm glad Epaulet is consistent across fabrics, styles and seasons.

    I own a pair of C&J suede oxfords that are about a quarter size too long for my feet. I tried both heel strips and tongue pads to rectify the problem, and found that the tongue pads worked much better for me. The tongue pads push my entire foot back a bit, thereby filling in the whole space at the back of the shoe, while the heel strips only filled in a portion of that space. Of course, your mileage may vary.

    ^Interesting, Keith. DId you attach the tongue pads yourself? I read that some have a cobbler put in the pads for them for a custom fit. I also see some cut the pads in half and space them out. I think I will try on a pair this weekend. :slayer:

    Chiming in on the shirt discussion. I'd say a pre-wash Epaulet M is larger than a Gitman S, but if you hot wash/dry an Epaulet shirt like they do to Gitmans before they're sent out, they get a lot closer in size.
