I can attest to this as well. I've had the horsehide boots for over 3 years now and wear them a lot during winter as well as even during the summer when I go on trips where I'm going to be walking a ton just because they are so damn comfortable for that. I've used nothing but Pecards on them maybe a couple times each year and they are holding up great so far.

I just ordered a pair of the Ironwood Tweed pants. It is so cold in Boston I just couldn't take it in jeans anymore. I usually wear a 28 and get the waist expanded a bit, so hopefully the 30 I ordered will work out.

Twice I've asked this, twice the pants have magically appeared in my size and twice they sold before I could get at them.

10z caramel duck rivet chinos in 34....any chance a restock is coming ever again?

NYI, awesome boot/trouser combo.

Those van-lasted Alden boots are most excellent, especially the suede with the reverse welt. Do that with the natural contrast double leather sole, in SNUFF!

Also, what will the retail on the Viennese shoes be?

Holy shit you guys, these shoes are incredible! Now I've kinda got my eyes on those Milkshake Indy Boots, uh oh  uhoh.gif

 

Speckled Chambray is tight too, probably my favorite Epaulet shirt out of the six or seven I've got. I need to check out their pants as I don't have any of those yet.

I've done this a couple times.

 

The biggest diff you'll notice once you get them altered is that the legs will be slightly wider on the 30 (unless you have your tailor taper the entire leg).

+1, same size and situation as both you guys. Had to have the entire leg and seat adjusted/tailored the two times Ive gone to size 30 for stock issues. Obviously more expensive, but some fabrics are worth it, I guess. #skinnypeopleproblems

Good to hear. Was actually hoping that the slightly looser fit would be more comfortable for winter ware.

Getting things in my size is pretty much hell. I am short, thin yet with a big chest and slightly broad shoulders. How much of a difference did you notice between the 28 and the 30?

Just ordered my first pair of Epaulet pants, the slim walt purple shetlands. Thanks to those of you who have posted the photos that encouraged me to take the plunge.

Between the ruby's, the python's, and now the tweed, my wallet is not happy.

Perhaps, but you'll be one slick looking SOB. And I mean that in the kindest way possible.

Really depends on your build, fit preference, and tolerance for looser clothing.

I'm 5'11, 155# or so, with skinny long distance runner legs and no ass: I usually get 28's slimmed in the leg anyway (.5 waist let out for a close to perfect top block fit), so the 30's were just more fabric to slim, with the addition of seat adjustment and taking the waist in rather than out. But I should say that I prefer slimmer pants, and can't stand when things feel loose and sloppy. Your preference for looser clothing may be different based on your build.

I'm the opposite of you. 5' 4", 125. Reasonably big legs from weight lifting with 28s being slim fit on me.

Then yeah, go for the 30 and get the waist taken in, should be fine.
