    In case anyone is interested, I put my regiment twill trousers through a full dryer cycle to see if I could achieve some controlled shrinkage. I sometimes do this because I am between sizes. Anyway, I got them to shrink just a little. I think they fit me better now, but I wouldn't say that it was a big difference.

    Thanks, its a Givenchy Linen/silk I got at C21.


    I cold wash mine, air dry them, and then warm iron em.



    Cool, just had my 7oz rivets hemmed and the lady did em too long, they're also is room in the waist, I may just pop one pair in the dryer to see how they turn out.

    Greetings from Cloudy Vienna! I made it here in one piece and I'll have photos to post soon. The city's looking good.


    Awesome, glad that you like them! The pricing actually isn't too bad - it will be somewhere in between calfskin and shell cordovan. They're going to be bonkers!





    Yes, the Forest last can be ordered in wides, so we can accommodate that for both the Sinclair boot and the MTO project Bal Boot.

    I do cold wash/hang dry my rivets, but never thought to steam them. Once I wear them for a couple of hours any wrinkles come right out.

    I always hear about these gems from C21 but have never found said gems myself... Will have to look harder. Thanks!

    If the pythons are less than the shells, I'm surely interested!

    Sometimes its not worth it...I live 2 min from the 86th Street one so I'm in often, I never found anything when I was looking, they just pop up. The place can be maddening even fpor people like me who enjoy the hunt.

    Wearing my newly arrived 7oz caramel rivets today. These sure feel a lot lighter than the 10ozs. Should be good for the upcoming hot weather. I'll get them hemmed after getting whatever shrinkage it may have after a couple of washes.

    I love the caramel. Are those cigar chukkas?

    It definitely is. And we'll surely figure out some wu-tang technique to ship python to our friends in Cali!

    Ok, I'm going to put together a preorder for this next week, the "cognac" python color will freaking blow you away. And you'll never believe how comfortable these shoes are. It's impossible to find something like this so basically no one has ever felt a snakeskin shoe on their foot, but let me tell you - it feels unbelievable.

    I can't wait for this. These shoes are going to be bonkers, and we'll be one of the only accounts to ever order python shoes for men!

    Good to hear, I'm pretty sure you guys will be ok if it's not listed online as able to ship to cali. What last will it be on?

    Thanks! Those chukkas are actually "cappuccino" shell from Allen Edmonds. They look kind of like cigar from online pictures, but are quite a bit lighter than cigar.
