post #14176 of 34986

Maybe I'm not understanding, but what's the difference going to be between the wool Rivets and the Walts?

post #14177 of 34986

rivets are chinos and walts are trousers, so the cut and fit is completely different.  maybe a slightly heavier wool too.  hoping the price point is still sub 200.

Chino is "technically" a type of cloth, but it's often used synonymously with trouser. That said, the cut of the rivet chino and the Walt are different, as you say. For example, Walts have a significantly higher rise.

I see.  I think for trousers, I would want the higher rise.  I don't think I'd really like a chino cut in a trouser fabric, if you know what I mean.

I know what you mean (I think), but there's a surprising--as in almost total--lack of quality wool pants in ANY other cut besides a trouser, which will always be a more "formal" look, even when dressed down. So, a pair of wool Rivet-cut pants would/will be an awesome option for cold weather wear, with boots, etc, that is also more casual in nature. However, the nature of the fabric will also make them "dress up" a little more than the cotton RCs, so pairing with a sportcoat will likely be a nice option that's a bit more low-key than a Walt/Rudy, but still a killer combo.

I too hope they are sub-$200, but I also hope they have 1/2 or 3/4 lining on the thighs, since raw wool pants on the interior are less than cozy.

its just a different option.  for example, im not a fan of any cotton cloth for the walt fit.  but it seems like those are a hit!

 

i know Wings + Horns does a wool chino.  It's probably pretty nice, but it's price at over $300 retail, but the cut isn't for me as I prefer the EP cut.

Thanks obie, a perfect excuse for a few more pairs of pants..."Look at these honey. No, they're not anything like the other ten pairs of trousers I have from Epaulet. Don't you see the difference? The cut is different, making them more casual in nature. It's so I can wear them with the boots I just bought, also from that shop in New York."

^^ You don't know how many conversations go exactly like that on a daily basis amongst forum members.

If I got a trouser "fit", I'd still be wearing them below my gut like I do the rivets, so might as well go with rivets. I'm a big proponent of selection in the rivet cut. If given the chance, I'd love to see the rivet in, say, cadet blue/grey, a gabardine, and other wools for more "cold" weather wear. In fact, it'd be awesome if Epaulet opened up a monthly "special order" like he does the rudys for the rivet. The rivet just fits great in the size I wear with the boots that I wear and I'm just not a fan of the double clasp + zipper of the trousers in general.

Now if I could just find an MTM shop that has good stock of liberty of London for shirting and I'd be pretty happy. biggrin.gif

Pretty much had that conversation this AM when I put on my caramel rivets (7oz). To be fair, my wife owns a women's clothing boutique, so she appreciates that I like clothes. That doesn't mean she won't give me shit about my purchasing though...

"What pants are those?"
"They're from Epaulet. They're like my purple ones."
"Huh. They seem a lot like your other khaki pants " (meaning my RRL officer chinos)
"Well, they are, sorta. But they're lighter weight."
"You seem like you have a lot of nice pants now."
"I do. And it's awesome."

Wool rivets would definitely be dope.

Crossing my fingers that the grape sportcoat I just ordered on sale was actually in stock.

Yup, the cuts are way different.

Shell Carminas and Plum Rivets today. Wanted to get some in the sun action pictures for a while...the color is brilliant under the sun.
