Summer may finally have arrived here in the UK, just in time for the olympics. Anyhow, I might just wear linen trousers for the rest of the summer. I may need to have these taken up a little.

When its warm I get a lot of wear out of my Epaulet short sleeve shirts. These were some of the first items I bought from Epaulet and I really like them. It is surprisingly difficult to find short sleeve button-down shirts that look good and fit well. Its probably too late for this year, but (Mike) it would be great to have some more offerings in the future.

I enjoy wearing my Epaulet and Ashland shirts more. They sit much better on your shoulders.

So, if a WvG Large Before Dinner shirt is just slightly too tight for me in the chest and waist, an Epaulet Large shirt should be spot-on? Or should I go for XL?

Alright friends - judgement time.

Just received in the mail today my first two pairs of RC from the fine folks at Epaulet. Plum Ducks and Gunmetal Canvas. I chose them TTS based on what I normally take, 34, and am looking for fit feedback.

Honest first impressions - They were far tighter than I would have assumed based on the measurements online. The rise was lower than anticipated and they particularly feel snug across the butt, almost to the point of feeling like I may burst a seam if I were to bend over (although that could just be me being self-conscious... they're the slimmest chinos I've ever had in the top block). Love the texture and weight of the ducks, and they don't feel too much even out in Nevada heat. The canvas is noticeably warmer, even as a lighter-weight fabric. Thighs are also a concern for me fit-wise. I'd been anticipating nailing the fit photos from the store on the head, that slightly more flowy look etc, but I'll leave it up to groupthink to decide smile.gif

If I were to do anything to the fit (beyond hemming), it would most likely be letting out the seat a little bit. The waist is snug, but will most likely stretch out a bit in time (?) as I assume the whole garment will give a bit. I'm coming from a denim-based background, so fit experts - let me have it.

Advice? Good where I am or should I exchange for the 36? Specific working points if a tailor is the answer? Thank you in advance for feedback.

El Arg, looks pretty good in the waist, but a little tight in the upper thigh and seat (but not terribly tight, I've seen others rock rivets a bit tighter). If they fit uncomfortably, maybe try a 36 for more space and take the waist in? Cheaper tailoring job than trying to let thighs and seat out, which probably wouldn't give you all the space you need here anyway. As far as stretching goes, don't expect any; better to try and nail the fit in the top block with a different size and adjusting the waist.

i take a 32 in the rudy and a 33 in the walt and RC.

Argentino, i would def say size up. it looks good from the front but its clearly way too tight in the seat. i agree with jpc9, that taking in stuff is easier then letting it out.

Does anyone own the Vanson Lenny varsity jacket?
I am thinking about buying it but am afraid the Large will be a little small through the shoulders. I am 6'1" and about 210lbs. I have broad shoulders and need a 44/46 in a fuller cut suit jacket but wear a 34/36 in pants. I wear an Italian 58 in Prada suits for the shoulders and upper arms but the body is huge and many slim fit jackets that you would find in Barneys Co-op for instance do not fit. The measurements of the Vanson jacket are similar to a Filson bomber in a medium I have but I feel like measurements do not tell the whole story and Filson is cut pretty generouse through the sleeves and that gives me some extra room in the shoulder area.
Does anyone own the jacket that can give me some feedback? It's a final sale and it would suck if it did'nt fit.

The sticking point for me here is when you have your hands in your pockets. Seems pretty clear that there's no enough room in the seat and thigh. That'd be the same carrying a wallet or phone, etc. right? All my trousers are size 34, except for my cotton Walts and Rivet Chinos. I've sized up to 36 in these with the idea of getting the fit on the way in (I'm going low maintenance and washing and drying, but a tailor is going to be more precise). I've had two pairs of 34 canvas Walts let out, and I'm not sure how much I like that fit. I guess I should post some photos...

My 2 cents: Size up on at least one pair of these, and see what you think.

Overall, I'd say the RC is going to be a good fit on you.

Get the 36. I think you and I have the same fit with pants.

They're not ridiculous tight except for the hands in your pockets. If you have a tailor you trust, I'd try letting a pair out...going up two sizes may change the fit of these. But really it all depends on how comfortable you are, these will not stretch out like denim. If you don't want to wait for a return, you could probably have that let out and be good, thats the biggest difference between old and new rivets, and its very helpful.

Why would he size up two?
One might be just enough for a slim, yet not limiting fit?

Will post a fit of my first pair of Rivets as well, as I think I will have to go up another sizes too.
