^ Rivet chino size 31.
  That was for a shell cordovan bal boot. Calf is less, I believe.
  +1. Go for a 32. It's easier to bring a trouser in than let it out (although with the Walts, it's of course possible to do both).     Mike, quick question about the Factory Finds cavalry twills. I'm noticing that they're wool. Was the medium grey cavalry twill you had in the Walt a FWs ago cotton or wool? I seem to remember it being cotton.   Are these fabrics similar, or will there be more contrast/more sheen on them?   Wish I could check out the swatches in person but...

^ I have heard that the Technivorm is the best drip coffee maker that money can buy -- it just takes a lot of money (for a drip machine).   N.B. that grinding your own beans fresh will improve the results from any brew or extraction method dramatically.   Also re dark/light roasts -- sure, you can do a dark or light roast well or poorly. The most interesting coffee I've had over the past five years or so has been on the medium or light end of things. A good dark...
