Time for some fall trouser closet cleaning. These are trousers I rarely wear (in one case, have only worn once). Both are unique, but still versatile in distinct ways. Both are done in Epaulet's Walt shape, a fitted straight trouser cut by hand at Hertling Trousers in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. No alterations have been made to these except for hemming by a professional alterations tailor in New York City. All measurements taken from the garment itself. Both fabrics are...
 I'm a slim Medium in Epaulet shirts, and a Medium in the Portugal shirting works great for me. On another note, just got my summer 5x Individualized shirts in, and am stunned by how great all the fabrics are. The shirts are all amazing, and I'll post photos later, but a note first that I was frankly surprised at how much I love the Brevanna Peached Twill. The colors really pop, and the fabric is incredibly soft. I picked it up in store and when I tried it on it elicited...
@Epaulet A quick query about the Albini indigo linens. You note that they'll be washed and will be a bit lighter in tone. How much lighter, exactly? Is this going to be an enzyme wash that will have a comparable effect of turning a shade like this into something like this? Or will it be just a single rinse and fairly close in color to the original? I'm specifically interested in the Albini Indigo Cotton-Linen (obviously, since I buy nearly every cotton-linen you carry)....
@FrankCowperwood Great fit. Is that a 3-ply oxford popover?   And Mike, looking forward to the fabric video! I really enjoy those videos. It's really helpful when ordering from swatches.
 You know what I mean, though, right? Everyone always sells a scarlet tartan of some kind for the fall, but I've never seen one quite this arresting. @Epaulet Mike, on another fabric, the Justified & Ancient Oxford Check, how like the Rhino Oxford is it? In terms of weight, hand, etc? Weave looks kind of fine. Also, can't really tell if it's monochrome or if there are browns and blues in the darker part of the check.
 Agreed. I have a few tattersalls just like this and they're among my most versatile and well worn shirts. @Michigan Planner it's not MTO; it's sized, done at the Portugal factory. Gotta say the Steel & Scarlet skies might be a sleeper hit. There are a million fabrics that do a red tartan on a dark background, but this one has such strong color depth -- very rare to find the design done so well on a tartan like that.
Brushed Twills look mighty good. The Bay City Rollers ref is   
 This is such an amazing square. Mine gets used all the time, both folded and puffed.
Those new Gitman shirts are outrageous. Saw them when I was in store picking up my Heirloom Sweater, and they're amazing fabrics. That horizontal oxford in particular is perhaps the softest oxford I've ever felt, and a great pattern. Nice No Country for Old Men vibe on that western shirt too.
