I got my gunmetal rivets tapered slightly from the knee down. worked perfectly for me. i just picked up my french blue's and caramels from the orchard st. store this weekend (thanks matt!!! great to meet you) and will certainly do the same. it turned a great chino that was slightly roomy into the perfect fit for me.

Epaulet offers great quality clothes at great prices. Their customer service is also top notch.

On a related note, I've been skimming through the first pages of the thread, to see what I have missed - and it seems that the guys have been able to make people cry over their wallets almost from the get-go.

Btw, huge props to Keith for pics of Korina V in this thread icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Maybe. My wife and I have no kids so urban living with all of the conveinents I mentioned would be a fit for me. You would get in return the great outdoors, free (but necessarily great) health care and a very nice size house and likely an acre or so of land for the same amount as your apartment.

lol... NYR, you are the king of thread derailments... but yeah, that's mine. It's awesome.

I've had a ton of cars (this one is #14) but the first new car I ever got was a MkV GTI which I absolutely loved. Last year, this R32 popped up at the dealer where my GTI was serviced and they offered me a really good deal on it. It's obviously a very similar car but the R32's differences are key. The GTI was always trying to put way too much power down to just the front wheels, plus the overall build quality on the R32 seems to be better even though most of it is the same materials. AWD lets me go to the snow whenever I want without needing to swap tires or put chains on. Handling-wise, the R32 feels much more confident and planted and I can brake much later in the twisties. I do miss the manual transmission on the GTI, though (the US R32s only came with the DSG).

 

I checked out the new Golf R at the LA Auto Show last fall and concluded it is far too similar to my car to warrant trading up. The only significant difference on the new one is that it gets far better mileage. But then you don't have that awesome throaty V6 exhaust note, so what's the point? But you ought to check out one of the new ones; either the R or just the new GTI. I remember the MKIIIs as being heavier and underpowered compared to the prior two generations. The more recent ones have fixed that. If you liked yours, you'd definitely like the new ones. But then we'd probably stop seeing weekly Epaulet purchases from you, so maybe don't...

Another outstanding photo, SVB. How long does it take you to set a shot like that up, and do you take it just for your tumblr and SF or do you have other reasons?

Here are two photos of my one and only Rivet Chinos in khaki.

463
492

Went with the 36 inch waist with the idea of washing and drying them to fit. I think the cut is nice overall. The hand on the fabric is soft and smooth. Should wear beautifully. I also need to take some photos of the two Caine sport coats I got, grape and green.

I hope the bare feet don't offend. No shoes in the house. Which is increasingly a problem, given the number of shoes I buy.

^did the washing and drying shrink them any?

Yes, as far as I can tell without any before and after measurements. I suppose it may go with out sayng, but years of rather careless washing and drying of just about any piece of clothing tells me that there's usually a noticeable amount of shrinkage over time. Sometimes that works for me, and sometimes it doesn't.

Sorry to continue the thread derailment, but a few months I purchased a 2009 MkV Rabbit ago for my teenager to drive to and from school. Right next to it on the dealer lot were a MkV R32 and GTI. My son for obvious reasons wanted the better performing car, specifically the R32, but I didn't want to pay more nor jack my insurance costs even higher. Kids put a real dent in the clothes and shoes budget.....

It's definitely fully blue. Not quite as vibrant as the French Blue, but almost.

eagerly awaiting my red white n blue madras, as well as the oxford chino restock.

 

any new shirts on the horizon?
