Good call, it does look more like navy now that I look again. And I do remember reading in the Alden thread recently that they are releasing a bunch of other navy CXL options soon.

How much do rivet chinos shrink in the wash and is there a way to keep them from shrinking?

The 34 fits me perfectly pre-wash... but any tighter and they'd be too tight for sure, so I'm scared to wash them. For my next chino purchase, would it work if I go up to a 36 and just hot wash the hell out of them?

I currently have 10 pairs of rivet chinos and didn't notice much shrinking in the waist in any of them from cold washing and hang drying. I started out with size 32 (have 4 pairs), which is fairly snug for me pre-wash, but not uncomfortable, and did not notice shrinkage in the waist after cold washing and hang drying. I've since switched to size 33 but still wear all my size 32's regularly. Some of them definitely shrunk in length though, so if you are going to hem them, be sure to wash them first.

By the way, you can let out the rivet chinos in the waist if they do shrink too much for comfort, so if they fit well everywhere else, I'd say stick with size 34.

Ah, I'm sorry for the confusion. I meant 2" shorter than a regular...so I'd be looking for an "extra-short" jacket. Is that a possibility? I'm guessing that you don't have the patterns for that at this time but I figured I'd ask.

10 pairs? They must be very good then for you to get so many of them.
I just discover Epaulet recently and am ready to order my first pair!!

Yeah, things tend to get out of hand pretty quick with Epaulet's stuff. I didn't think I had that many pairs, but when I counted them, that's how many I've got...shog[1].gif

I sympathize. For me the trigger is the limited run nature of much of what EP does. If there's something interesting that you think you'll regret missing, you go ahead and get it if possible. Of course, then that KEEPS happening. smile.gif

Let's also add that it wouldn't keep happening if we weren't satisfied with what we were getting teacha.gif

I feel a little ridiculous saying this, but I own pretty much everything in Epaulet minus blazers/suits--just never gotten myself into a physical store.

For a 40R with broad shoulders in almost every brand, and L in Epaulet shirting, what would fit you guys recommend--Weller vs. Caine vs. Daltrey. Thanks in advance.
post #17952 of 31262

iirc, Weller, Caine and Daltrey are all the same cut/pattern, just different details (Caine=ticket pocket 3/8 lining, Daltrey=elbow patches, etc). Not sure on the 40R to Weller/Caine/Daltrey translation, but if you're a Large in the Shirts, and 40R in other stuff, you're probably a 40R in Weller/Caine/Daltrey. You can always order one and try it out; SF members get 14 day returns.

 

 

SIZE CHEST     SHOULDER SLEEVE LENGTH APPROX. EPAULET SHIRT SIZE
34 17.5" 16" 25" 29.25" XSMALL
36 18.5" 16.5" 25" 29.5" SMALL
38 19.5" 17" 25.5" 29.75" MEDIUM
40 20.5" 17.5" 26" 30" LARGE
42 21.5" 18" 26" 30.25" XLARGE
44 22.5" 18.5" 26.5" 30.5" XXLARGE

Thanks for that--I didn't notice the elbow patches/ticket pocket distinctions. That helps.

10 pairs of chinos is provably what a lot of us have. I think over 30 pairs of Epaulet trousers will put you up there!

Can't wait to see what other goodies will be out soon.
