^ Agreed with @Beatlegeuse. My Walt 32s are perfect in the waist and a bit loose in the thighs, and I can take a Wilshire 31 for a very slim fit. If, like you @tigerpac, my Walts fit less loose, I'd think my regular Walt size or one up would work perfectly. You can also take your rivet chino size if that's different from your Walt size.
  ...go for that fourth fold!  @TweedyProf A belated reply to your interesting post. My rules for grenadines are as follows: Fina: four-fold, very lightly lined, handrolled, untipped. Piccola and grossa: seven-fold, unlined, handrolled, untipped This, for me, produces ties that tie excellent FIH and DFIH knots, as well as allowing for the light, airy quality of grenadine silk to be more naturally expressed. Anything heavier than a very light lining, I believe, makes...
IME: My shirts are about 60% NE (old Ep) and 40% Gitman (Ashland or GBV), and the Gitman shirts seem to always have much nicer fabrics and superior construction. In particular, Gitman collars are amazing, and their shoulder is constructed in such a way that the rest of the shirt doesn't move as much/at all when I move my arm. It's enough to make me want to replace all of my shirts with Gitman shirts.Thanks -- will do.
 Oh hey! That came in? Let me know when/where I can pick it up. Also that's navy blue/white, right? That's what the swatch said and what it looks like on my monitor. And last, re the EPLA washed oxfords, it's pretty amazing to see a quality, made-in-the-USA shirt of Japanese oxford for under $100.
Same as this jacket. Shots courtesy of StanleyVanBuren:         Size Euro 48/US 38. Yours for SOLD.
^ Fairly sure that was the one thing that's definitely not adjustable.   Great to see the MTO program off the ground!
^ Wow @Gerry Nelson you may have just convinced me to buy it. How light or heavy is the fabric?
Hmm never experienced shrinkage of any kind on my tweed Walts. Whatever works for you, though. I obviously agree that the tweed Walts are fantastic for cold weather! If I lived in a windy/foggy place like SF I'd wear them there too.Which tweeds, tricky?
 Impressive that that shirt's OTR and Suitsupply. May have to check them out.  In my experience, thick wools are best done untipped/hand-rolled edges/three- or four-fold. A good expression of the wool without too much bulk. I like mine with a very, very light lining as well.
 While your tailor does sound expensive for regular stuff, I'd expect to pay $150+ to take a jacket down two sizes (shoulders, sleeves, taking in the chest, etc), so that doesn't sound unreasonable, especially if the shoulder work was good. The tailors I've used will sometimes refuse to do shoulder work even if they can because it's a pain. @leftofthedial Matt those trainers look great. Did you oil/polish/condition them?
