A Walt 33 is perfect on me, but a 33 Rivet Chino was just a little bit too tight at the waist. Letting the wait out fixed that, but if (when!) I order another pair I'm going to a 34. Just my experience.

I try not to be too fussy about wearing a new pair of shoes, particularly since I find that it can take me more than some careful wear on carpet over a few hours to tell if a shoe is a really good fit. I need to walk around in it in the wild to see it really suits my feet. At the same time, I've found that with double leather soles and, I think, shell, I'm also in Trig's camp. Some wear indoors first helps avoid too much premature wear on the toe for me.

Hurray for restocks, I finally got my caramel duck canvas rivets after months of waiting and kicking myself for waffling on the purchase when they were last available.

Weather is nice today, low to mid 70s Fahrenheit so decided to wear the digi cam:

I found these today at Buffalo Exchange - can someone confirm if they are by Epaulet? The tag isn't the same as the current models on the Epaulet site, but the herringbone "selvage" looks like that on the rivet chinos.

They are indeed Epaulet chinos. That was the old tag when the Rivet chinos had rivets and the waist band did not allowed to be let out.

Are you in NY by any chance?

It's more of a consignment store, you can trade in items for cash or store credit at a given percentage of what the shop will charge for said item.

I am quite chuffed - I just started a new job and will be picking up a few pairs of rivet chinos in the next few weeks, and since these are my size I can cross off 'blue' from the list.

I can already feel the very early stages of an addiction setting in...

Just spent a good chunk of time reading through the thread and made my first purchase! Rivet Chino in Duck Canvas Caramel.

 

Been trying to "class up" my wardrobe just a smidge. I literally wear denim every day.

 

The no refund policy scared me a bit, but after meticulously measuring every pair of pants that I own, I think I'll be okay with size 34. And it looks like the waist can be let out even slightly as well, so feeling okay. The rise seems perfect.

 

If these fit great, I'll be picking up a pair in canvas navy as well. Any other "staple" colors I should put on my list?

 

And finally, for those that have the duck canvas rivets, how warm of temperature have you worn them comfortably? I live in Seattle so it doesn't get too terribly warm here, but wondering if these are wearable in 65ish degree temps?

 

Thanks and excited to get these!

^^ Definitely wearable in all temps in my opinion.  Lighter than you will think but a tight and tough weave ^^

Now I need to replace the items one at a time -- favorite items first, of course -- but the gunmetal rivets are sadly sold out in 34 already. Are they getting another restock anytime soon?

Also the brushed graphite rivets appear to be the same fabric and similar color as the gunmetals. Can anyone describe the difference?

Oh man, I'm sorry to hear about the suitcase. I've been there before - that sucks!

Brushed Graphite is pretty similar to Gunmetal in color. The Gunmetal is a canvas, and it has the typical canvas "plain weave" structure. The Twill has a diagonal weave and a soft brushed finish. I'd say that the canvas is a touch more casual.

Shhhhh, don't say that!

We're all wavering a bit back and forth over here. I dropped about 15lb last season, but I seem to be doing my best - unintentionally - to gain that back.
