I'm really tempted to try a pair of Rudy's (great sale price). I'm 6 ft 160 lbs so pretty thin overall with thin legs. Can any skinny guys comment on how Rudy's fit on them? Do you guys usually stick to the Walts?

Here's what you can do, get the rudy, then bring it to a tailor to taper the legs and take in the seat.

 

I've done the same to my blue wool rudy because the walts sold out. Turned out really well. In fact, I normally have to alter my walts anyway, to either taper the legs or to let out the waist depending on if I sized down or sized normally.

 

However, doing that MIGHT defeat the purpose of getting rudys on sale, so, add like $20 to the price, if it still make sense, then get them.

Wore French Blues today...real crummy day here in the borough. Welcome home Mike and Adele...
Can you tell it was a little chilly on the walk to work? #nipplepron

Man these are about as anti-baller as it gets. 6 year old JCrew bucks bought in the sale bin at the Menlo Park Mall for like $40. They're great to beat the hell out of, and frankly these tend to look better beat up...$40, or $400.

I got the red cord with stars. I wanted one for a while. I also got a new camera yesterday so here's to hoping for better pics!

I love that shirt, but I think they were out of my size pretty quickly. Enjoy!

My Rudy butterscotch canvas pants arrived today & I'm looking for suggestions on what color shirt to wear with 'em. What colors would go best with those pants? Thanks in advance.

I've worn dark blue and wine shirts with those, but they're really pretty versatile. They're a great color.

Is there any difference, even a slight sizing difference in the Liberty shirts vs. Epaulet in house stuff? I am eyeing the Large Mitsi Liberty Shirt in Large. I find I am between a L and XL in Epaulet so even a slight bigger fit would be enough to convince me to pull the trigger before it sells out. Also, any shrinkage info folks can give would be appreciated as well. I know I am grasping here, just trying to justify pulling the trigger. Love the shirt design.

Thanks!

Thanks! Can't wait 'til I get home to checkout my Rudy special orders that arrived today. Maybe I'll pair the linen navy star shirt with 'em.

This makes sense since the online business is probably served just fine from NY leaving in-store purchases (generated by foot traffic from other shops nearby) as the only reason to open a store in LA.

My point is that I think AK now fits this profile as well but there may not be hard data to back this up yet, even now.

Then there's also the biggest reason I can think of to NOT want a store in LA -- because then we'd have to start paying sales tax.

Clearly, the next Epaulet expansion should happen in San Francisco. Great foot traffic, similar weather to NY so both stores stock the same inventory, and I could volunteer to manage. /discussion
