No pic, but I have a question for a tailor. What should I ask for when getting a pair of five-pocket pants (non-denim) taken in at the waist only? I've got a couple pairs of cords and cotton pants in a five-pocket style that fit well everywhere except in the waist. I've had some denim taken in at the waist which involve two small darts being put in above the rear pockets. It worked well enough, but the fit in the seat is a bit 'off' and I understand that it is much...
I think having size charts specific to each run would solve all of these problems. If sizing is going to vary so much, then this has to happen. For what it's worth, on the website there is a note about the duck camp pants fitting smaller - but the size chart is still the same. If these are the first pair of pants you've ordered from them, comparing the size to other TS products isn't going to help.It's because of this sort of issue (not isolated to just TS) that I'm moving...
They work fine, they're a bit chunky but that's just the way it is with winter boots. I wear mine with straight leg pants and tapered denim, I don't think it looks too bad. Everyone around here wears Blundstone boots anyways so I don't exactly stick out.
I ended up returning the pants, I wore them around my place for a bit and the fit just wasn't right. I measured them and it turns out they are almost a whole size smaller than the original run of camp pants, which themselves were a size smaller than the size charts for TS pants indicate.I love the concept that these guys are working towards and the stuff I have that does fit well are amongst the best clothes I own, but I can't understand how sizing can vary so much in a...
Those would be more than sufficient, Toronto isn't that cold. The boots are waterproof so as long as your feet keep dry, you're all good. There really isn't a winter boot that can do waterproof, warm and stylish all at once (especially if you face salt and slush every day and don't want to invest a lot of money in boots that will be destroyed in a couple years).I wear the 062 model with thick socks and insoles and I don't have any problems with cold feet. That's just my...
Not really. They've got a lot of 'volume', so they're meant to be worn with thick socks. I've found them to more more than sufficient down to -25 Celsius or so with warm socks.
For sale is a SNS Herning 'Net' Cardigan in triple blue, size XL. I've worn it around 10 times. It's a cotton/wool blend with a more open weave than a Stark. Like most SNS knits, the fit is slim with long arms. I'm open to reasonable offers, but I'm already offering it for far below normal price so I won't take any lowballs. All sales final, ask all questions before selling. Please PM questions to me.
So my duck canvas pants showed up - I can confirm that they fit pretty much the same as the original run of camp pants, and you should size up one from your chino size. And it's just my luck that the camel colour is now sold out in my size
Thanks for the responses gents, I've been wearing them around my home to break them in (it's slush city where I live for the next 4 months) so they should be good by spring.
Just got a pair of ranger mocs in from the Club Monaco sale. I followed the sizing advice I found here (the suggestion was to take the same size as one takes in the Alden Barrie last), but they seem pretty tight. I got a pair of penny loafers last year in my 'normal size' (10.5D) and they were huge, so big that I had to sell them. I figured then that sizing down to 10D would work. How much can I expect the chromexel to stretch on the ranger mocs? I have some boots in the...
