Alden for Epaulet | West Egg Sand Suede Longwing

Great Gatsby...

Upper - Butter-soft full-grain suede with glove leather liner
Outsole - Oiled leather "flex" sole
Last - 
Leydon last for a slimmer, modern shape

After much success with this longwing last season, Epaulet brings you a second beautiful color to choose from. Introducing Epaulet's newest Alden special make-up. Exclusive to Epaulet, this handsome "sand" suede longwing is named after the fictional "Gold Coast" town of Long Island where Jay Gatsby (a.k.a. the Great Gatsby) resided. Paired with a crisp white oxford and tropical wool trousers, these would certainly have been appropriate for a Springtime event at his mansion. 18 units are available.

The "flex-welt" leather sole is bathed in oil to make it exceptionally supple - but just as durable as any other solid leather sole. Forget a break-in period - these are as comfy as your favorite sneakers from the first moment you put them on. The style is a great split of dress and casual, and the medium-brown "Snuff" color is really handsome. Wear them with a navy suit, with raw jeans, with seersucker pants, with grey flannel trousers, or plenty of other pieces. These are guaranteed to get heavy rotation in your wardrobe.

The Leydon last runs true to size. Order your normal dress shoe size.
