Are these as yellow as they look in the photos?
Completely different. The duck canvas is much like the classic Carhartt color (if you know what I'm talking about). The Regiment Twill is much more of a gold-tinted brown (a little like the older Golden Khaki Rivet Chino we produced a while ago).
Thanks! It usually only takes a couple seconds to set the camera settings and maybe 2 or 3 tries to get a shot that I like. Overall it's less than a minute or two. I just use the auto-timer. I take the photos just for the hell of it, really -- I don't even have that many followers on tumblr, that's just there to preserve them all in one place. There's also the fact that my girlfriend has a lot of fun with the ones we do together.
Also I found a lot of the advice I received from posting in WAYWT -- especially near the beginning -- to be absolutely invaluable. There are a lot of idiots posting in there too, but weeding out the bad advice is the same as for anything else; you can ignore a lot of the noise but if a bunch of people are all telling you the same thing, then you probably ought to consider it.

Unless they're all saying that you need to get "swagged out" by wearing a leather jacket. Then they're still wrong.
So very sad. Got my first 2 pairs of rivet chinos in late last week, took them in to the tailor's Saturday to have them let out a little and hemmed, and picked them up today. Well, as I was trying to break them in once I got home, both sets let go at the seam directly below the front buttons. Both pairs.
Rugby thighs make it impossible to have nice things.
You guys on here have any advice? Should I just write off my losses and consign rivet chinos to the category of things I cannot have, or should I try to take them back to the tailor's and have...I don't know what done to them?
Thanks for any advice.
I know, I know.
I was doing all sorts of stretches to try and loosen up the canvas from around my thighs. I get kinda fixated on things and wasn't about to let one set back defeat me.
