Tried a single cuff on the Oxford Chinos today, but reverted back to double cuff after the picture. Would've taken another pic, but the mosquitoes were out in full force.

Ah, I'd be pretty sure that they're too small for you. At least by a half size.

Hanging up dress trousers (super 120's, wool/cashmere, brown houndstooth etc) is definitely the best way to store them.

But, if you're short on space, it's okay to neatly fold thicker trousers (tweeds, flannel, moleskin) and store them that way. Lighter trousers won't be hurt by folded storage, but you may put a small horizontal crease into them. Thicker cloths are going to be more resistant to this, so it's not much of an issue. I actually fold all of my flannel and tweed pants. Just do it along the crease and you're golden.

It's up to you. Calvary Twill is still wool, so it won't be that casual - not as much as a Regiment Twill for example. I'd love it with boots, but it's probably too dressy for sneakers or a really casual look.

That said, if you want to get rid of the crease, just take it to a dry cleaner and ask for a "side to side" pressing. Usually only costs a few bucks and it will knock the crease right out. Just be sure to continue asking for that in any future cleaning runs, as many dry cleaners put a front crease into wool trousers by default.

Also, for anyone with experience with Carmina and Alden... I've found that the Alden Barrie last fits like a glove in a 9.5. Has anyone who finds the Barrie a really good fit found one of the Carmina lasts to be a good match? If not, which last would be closest to the Barrie?
Thanks!

For a Barrie last customer, I'd recommend the Forest last as the best fitting Carmina last. It has a higher toe box and a nice round shape at the front. We run most of our boots and shortwings on the Forest. I think that it's one of the best fitting shoe lasts on the market, period. Most guys would size down a half from their Barrie sizing (ex. order a 9UK if you take a 9.5D in the Barrie).

Haha, mine too. This is a little Donnie Brasco meets Milano Gentleman meets 1970's Mick Jagger on vacation.

^ Mike are the cavalry twills in the current Factory Finds the same/similar to the grey cavalry twill that you offered a couple of falls ago? I seem to remember those being cotton. Are the current ones (the gunmetal cavalry twill, for instance) going to have much sheen and/or contrast in the weave?

I'll give the forest a try, then.
Thanks!

Airforce Flannel has been the best seller so far, and that's going to work wtih all three of them. Typically you wouldn't wear a navy jacket with a non-matched navy pant, but the hopsack is really dark and the Airforce is much lighter, plus you have the difference in texture.
Outside of that, check out the Chartreuse tweed as a second pant. Going to look great with the Caine and the Brown Houndstooth - and it's a great trouser for a cool Canadian day.
Third pant to recommend is the Gunmetal Calvary Twill. Will go with all three (maybe not that great with the Brown Houndstooth, but ace with the other two), and it's a really tough, versatile fabric.

Thanks for the reply Mike. Think I will pass on the Airforce as it may be too close to my brushed cotton navy Walts. The Chartreuse tweed sounds great though.

Any news on the Steinbeck boot? I can't wait to see it.

How about boots and an untucked button-up shirt?  It's hard to tell from just the swatch and I don't have any experience with the specific material...

Cross-post from Carmina thread.....

Special Order Midnight Calf / Navy Suede Jodphur Boot

Hey guys, the preorder is up!


Special Order Midnight Calf / Suede Jodphur Boot

This is going to be an incredible makeup! The final price is $695, including shoe trees. This item is for the $350 non-refundable deposit. Ordering is open until Monday, August 20th at midnight EST.

If you have any questions at all, please drop me a PM. As this is on the Rain last, it's only available in medium widths - it's unfortunately not possible to offer it in wides or narrows. We built out sizes UK6 through UK12, but I may be able to do smaller or larger than that if you need it. And let me know if you size sells out and we can add more stock to it.

Thanks!

My god those Midnight boots may actually make me jump ship to Carmina finally. Those look unreal.

It's been a really long time since I bought anything Epaulet and I'm eager to get back in the mix. Hopefully you don't mind the plethora of questions.

I'm in the process of building my work wardrobe, what would be some good pieces to start off with?

Any word on the next run of Aldens would be?

Are you planning on bringing back the SFxEpaulet collaboration shirts?

Anddd for the factory find fabrics would me card get charged when it ships? (need to make sure I don't over extend myself haha).

Mike,

 

I'm split between the Coffee Tweed and the Taupe Flannel for a good earth tone. How would you compare the two? Is the tweed also more contrasty in the picture the same way as the chessboard or do you feel that still is a good representation of the fabric? I think I'm leaning a bit more towards that one, but have some reservations that it may be less versatile than the taupe if it is overtly contrasty. And how would you compare the weights of those two?

 

Thanks.
