Thanks Mike. Since I have to alter the waist on the Driggs anyway:- How much do you think the washed canvas will shrink in the waist if I wash and dry? If it's more than .5" it might be better to keep then.
Are the washed English canvas driggs running larger than the twill? I just received a pair of Grey driggs and the waist is 1" larger in the waist (34") and the inseam is 35" (my olive driggs in the same size measured 33" in both waist and inseam when I received it).
Apologies if answered already, but which cotton fabric would work best for a MTO Driggs summer (or year round in California ) chino:
7.8oz Japanese garment dye fine twills
English sanded canvas
Egyptian Khyber Cloth
I purchased this RRL Blue Chambray Button Down Shirt in size small a couple of years ago but it's a little too slim for me. It's still in great condition and here are my measurements:
Length (bottom of collar): 27"
Priority mail shipping CONUS for $45 SOLD
Interesting as the 33" inseam on my Olive Driggs was perfect. After shrinkage from wash/dry I could just fold over for a cuff and tailor only had to alter the waist. Trying to figure out which MTO to get for my next pair.
I've been thinking the same as I hardly wear my cigar captoe boots. However I like the look of the Grant last so will try to wear more often. I'm now thinking of off loading my cigar Indys instead as something about the square instead of rounded stitching at the toe bothers me.
