Epaulet Shetland Tweed Trousers

Hey guys, here's the long-promised Shetland Trousers. We'll have fit pics to show later this week. I've been talking about these for a while, but they're really incredible - especially if you live somewhere with a cold winter.

This is the main delivery of Walt's that we'll have. In a few weeks, we'll take Rudy Special orders on them. Walt 28's and 38's can be special ordered. And we can also cut you a matching sportcoat for $795. This would make up as a seriously ace suit.


Walt Trouser Navy Shetland Tweed: $225


Walt Trouser Cocoa Herringbone Shetland Tweed: $225

Mike,

I've been looking at brown trousers for the last few weeks. I never bought a pair because dark brown is so mundane to me. I've been looking at the Shetland Cocoa all day today, and just pulled the trigger. I think the herringbone pattern did it for me, also Donegal wool just rocks.


I want to add a permanent cuff to them. Do you think the weight is too heavy to do so?

No way is it too heavy, I cuff all of my winter trousers at 2"...enjoy W.

Yes!  Personally, since I already have the navy, I'd love to see it in a midnight or charcoal flannel, almost like what you're planning for the Eisenhower.  I see a lot of overlap between the CPO and the moleskin cutaway overshirt, but I'm just not a cutaway guy - if the moleskin was a point collar, I'd already have it, since I prefer the button chest pockets to the CPO ones.  Those suggestions in mind, the CPO is a great casual jacket - mine's coming out shortly, based on how cool it's getting in Seattle. smile.gif

Do I need to size up to Medium? Been lifting a lot this summer, and the medium shirts are starting to feel a little restrictive...thoughts?

Shorts are old school beat to hell 501 selvedge cut down, shoes Alden, ink fresh.

Also being in Seattle, I second this vote for a return of the CPO. preferably in grey.

Oh shrinkage

I did not read, and therefor heed, the directions to wash in cold water. My fairly new Rivet Chino canvas pants are now a bit tighter in the seat and comically short. baldy[1].gif

I guess I'll wash first then have them hemmed next time.

Saw this and deliberately washed warm to shrink down. Drying at home. Fit opinion to come.

Do you have any fabric left to let them out?

Received my Carmina Faulkner shortwings the other day and got to rock them yesterday at work. They are the TITS. If they're available in your size, jump on 'em.

I believe Mike stated that you can special order the jacket.

I would say that the shirt certainly doesn't look too small, but if the feeling is too restrictive, I would give a size up a try.
