post #17011 of 32854
No problem, happy to help.

I actually have a question about the modified Walt shorts for anyone out there that has a pair - are they as slim in the thighs as regular Walt trousers? For example, if I wear a 33 Rudy very comfortably (I can technically fit into a pair of Walts, I've tried them on but they were just a little too tight in the thigh for me), is there any chance the Walt shorts in a size 33 would work for me?

EDIT: I tried finding measurements for shorts, but I couldn't find any left on the old site and the new site doesn't have the measuremts listed yet.

Lemon-lime Donegal Rudy alert on epauletnewyork.com. In 36. Would buy, but almost certainly would require too much tailoring to fit me to make it really worthwhile.

i'm feeling similar about the harris tweed slacks that just went up in a 34, though tailoring might not be so bad. the real issue is i have absolutely no chance to wear them, except maybe my hopeful upcoming trip to iceland.

All that's left now is to get a pair of four season mid grey wool work trousers! Any recommendations?

Thank you, and glad that you're enjoying them! For the most versatile grey trouser, check out our wool/cashmere model:

Sizes are busted up at the moment, but we should get a restock within the next week or so. I wear mine a few times a week. They're a touch heavier than the Super 120s, but lighter than the flannel. And the hand on these is insanely nice.

Oh you'll be good with the Walt short in a 33. The thighs are actually a bit bigger than the Rudy - which is normal for shorts. I comfortably wear the same size in both the Rudy and the Walt short. There's still seam allowances that can be let out, but I doubt you'd have to do that.

Yup, good buy on that last remaining pair. We'll got a few factory finds up already that are quite rudy-friendly on epauletshop.com, and they'll be about five more fabrics to come in the next couple of days. The best news is: my dudes found fabric to cut another 12 Airforce Flannels and 10 Chessboard Birdseyes icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Very cool way to fit the Royal Blue pants. I dig them with that jacket.

Thanks, Mike! I went to the page and had a look - they look impressive! If if they're good enough for Matt to wear socks, they have to be great!

Hey Mike, is the weight on the birdseye around the same as the chartreuse tweed, and how do they both compare to the heavyweight twill chinos? Not sure if I'm kopping the birdseye though, burned waaay too much in a couple past months. And dat ashland tartan, aaargh decisions.gif

They are gorgeous and look heavy duty. I am way tempted and live in southern California!

I dont think it will fit. I am a 42 in the Caine and that is really really snug in the shoulders to where im debating not doing shoulder press for a few weeks.

I love that kind of denim, but I wouldn't try to make a Walt trouser out of it. The vibe on this is a bit dressier, and more in the Zegna & Isaia camp then the APC & Iron Heart one. This works brilliantly as a casual trouser, and it's intended to be a way to wear a sportcoat and jeans without wearing a sportcoat and jeans - if you catch my drift. It will most likely fade nicely with wear, but not the kind of nutzo denim-head fades that you typically see.

oh deer god

I like the color of these royal blue twills. Goes well with the brown jacket and Carminas.

Hmm...they must have a couple pairs in 34 cause I jumped on them last night. Only one size off for me...so a bit of tailoring and I am good to go. Looking forward to them
post #17024 of 32854

Just received my Flannel Cargo Walt's in the mail, size 34. The waist and legs are perfect. But...the thighs seem a little too narrow which might be okay with a plain trouser, but since the cargo pocket is right there, it kinda creates an awkward narrowing from the top of the cargo pocket to the bottom seem of it. Im not sure what to do...

 

Can the cargo pocket be removed? 

 

Am I simply destined for Rivets and Rudys? I love my green donegal rudy's. I wish these had the same silhouette. These were a epauletnewyork.com pickup, so I imagine they're final sale at the price I got them for.

Reposting so people can see how some of the FF's made up.
