So I left my huge suitcase in the trunk of a Beijing taxi and... there goes half my wardrobe! Now I need to replace the items one at a time -- favorite items first, of course -- but the gunmetal rivets are sadly sold out in 34 already. Are they getting another restock anytime soon? Also the brushed graphite rivets appear to be the same fabric and similar color as the gunmetals. Can anyone describe the difference?
How much do rivet chinos shrink in the wash and is there a way to keep them from shrinking? The 34 fits me perfectly pre-wash... but any tighter and they'd be too tight for sure, so I'm scared to wash them. For my next chino purchase, would it work if I go up to a 36 and just hot wash the hell out of them?

I highly doubt Jay made any money after all the costs were factored in, but his patience, customer service, and attention to detail have been remarkable...
Any plans for more point collar shirts in the "beefy Japanese oxford cloth" (especially in white!)?
I saw these at the store. The ones without the weird blots all over them are nice. The color and buttons are great, the fit slim and long-ish (great for tall guys). The material is heavy and doesn't seem to breathe very well, though, so I don't think they'd be comfortable during the summer or if you're gonna be active in them ie dancing. The ones w/ the blotting are just bizarre. I'm not sure what they were thinking with those: they just look defective more than...

I had the grey in M which fit fine, then I got the white in M and it fits significantly smaller! Why would you do such a thing, Gitman?? So now I...
