"Classic" is always a relative term, as is "reactionary." As is "style."
Speaking of the Driggs vs Rivets: I tried the button fly from the Driggs/Walt/Rudy factory on my Slate Garment Dye Driggs MTO. Interesting result! The factory sews a line of stitching between each button, making it take a bit longer to button up, but I like the change from my Walts and Walt Shorts. A button fly is perfect for the lower Rivet Chino rise, but in future I'll stick with the zipper for the slightly higher trouser rise.
Very nice Rob. Is the indigo Wool/Linen/Silk the same fabric (different colorway) as the LP Wool/Linen/Silk from earlier this summer?

I'm between an Epaulet mainline Small and Medium, and the Keystone Small fits me perfectly.
  You guys are killing it. Two fantastic looks. The envy of that Chambray 1911 is only just now abating.
@justinkapur you're right, of course, that it's best not to pull the knot through, and instead to untie the tie exactly in the reverse as it was tied.   Assuming @ovlov is untying properly, though, Vanda grenadines -- along with any other grenadine (esp finas and piccolas) that are unlined or lightly lined -- will retain some wrinkling around the knot area unless they're left hanging for several days, if not a week.

 If this is still useful, I'd recommend trying Mission Cantina. I'm not usually one for hipster Mexican food, but this place is great. I also like Pok Pok Phat Thai. Cake Shop and Whiskey Ward for bars. New Kamigatas look terrific.
 @jesPak or anyone who has used Meurice, do you recall the cost of dry cleaning a suit or sportcoat? I have a SC that another dry cleaner stained, inexplicably, and needs taken to someone great. I'm thinking Meurice is the best South of 14 St option. The SC is, unfortunately, cotton-linen, which I understand is extremely difficult to remove stains from. Still, Meurice has a reputation as a stain specialist.
