Hey guys, long-time lurker, first-time poster, etc.
I actually dropped Epaulet an email, but seems they are having one of those gonzo moments , so I figured I might register and ask here.
First off, I'm ready to pull the trigger on clay chinos, but I wonder if this is the older chino cut. And if so, will I be safe aiming for the same waist size that my jeans have (rear waistband laid flat and doubled). And also to what amount can they be let in/out - only read about these aspects of the newer cut. I'm about 31.5, which is exactly equal to my jeans' measurement, so it seems I should grab 31 (and 32 is out of stock anyway). For now this is going to be my first purchase, so I can only build upon what I have.
And another concern are shirts. I'm about 38.5 in the chest - so I guess medium is the way to go. Comparing the size chart with my own shirts' measurements I can see that the shoulders might be around 3/4" too broad each (I take that shoulder bone tip as an ideal), and the sleeves around 1" too long (btw, I'm 5'11", 155 lbs). Yeah, I'm working out, but not expecting my shoulders to grow that much in the nearest future
Actually, at the very first page LA Guy chimed in with a similar body build, stating small could work as well (and I also like the slimness in the chest, but not to the "hulk action" point), but then I'd rather be on the safer side.
Sorry about asking this newbie stuff, this whole style thing is almost new to me
