Yep, will do. Might check out their Walt fit also.

I own Walt's, Rudy's and several examples from Howard Yount. The fit of the Walt's is slightly better (I prefer a higher rise), quality on the Yount's is insane for the price. The charcoal Walt flannels are also bad ass.

x2 you were not kidding in regard to these new flannels. I received a couple pairs yesterday. Spectacular quality.

Frankie, according to measurements, the rise on Epaulet is i think 1.5 inches higher. Does that end up being a big deal? I like a high rise which is why I have been going with Epaulet but the prices are getting too high.

I finally dropped the cash on 2 wool flannels - mid-grey and purple. I'm really looking forward to it, but that guy's fit pics really scared me, but I'm 5'10", so hopefully I'll be okay.

The deciding factors were the higher rise of the American made ones, and Epaulet's rising prices. I think they're slowly pricing themselves out of a certain market, but they seem to be doing well, so it looks like that might not be the brand for me anymore. Their least expensive cotton pants went from $150-$165 in a couple months.

Omar, I believe that 1.5' does make a difference, albeit not a huge one. The pants sit higher on the waist which allows for a slightly better fit, imo. As you know, with tailored clothing, the devil's in the details. That said, I love the HY's as well; quality is spectacular. 

 

To be frank, I absolutely love Walts in heavy fabrics and also the linens. Not a huge fan of their mid weight wool options, they don't drape as well on me.

Yeah, something funky is going on in those pictures. I think they'd look better if you tried them on with a belt and turned up the ankle so they'd hang cleanly. In the first one, you're leaning forward so that's not helping the leg. The second pic doesn't look as bad.

Ok, I'll retake the pics after I get off work and post again.

Any idea of when the four season 100 or 120 wool pants will be restocked? I'd like to order a couple.

Are you talking about these?

Rest assured. The American cut is perfect for me and I am also 5'10 and on the athletic side of slim. Not sure what is going on in Amathew's pics, but I suspect he is difficult to fit.

I would have liked to have tried the Epaulet Rudy fit before it was discontinued, as there is something about the Walt pics on their site that I don't find flattering. Some incredible fabrics still make it tempting though....

You can special order a Rudy, though no returns on that. I've found the best solution to be HY's american made pant, sized up to a 34 and taken in at the waist. The problem is waiting for more summer weight american cut pants to come out

Agreed. The fit on my pants look nothing like that other guy. I'm 6'0 and 155 lbs. I haven't had them hemmed yet either but they fit me well and I might actually need to let out an inch in the waist.
