Hi Mike,

How much would you say the thigh shrinks after the first wash?

In theory, I'd be a 30 in the rivet chinos based on the website measurements (my thigh measurement is about 22.5 inches). I've got a couple pairs of Incotex that are 30 and fit, but most of the time I end up sizing up to a 32 and having my tailor take in the waist (or, take in the waist and take out the seat -- another side effect of being an athlete).

What I really ought to do is get my ass in to the store, but I see a pair or two of pants that look like they might have low inventory, and want to get those locked down. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

The cut hasn't changed at all. Since changing production to more of a trouser construction, the cut has stayed the same (minus the first delivery which was about a half inch small in the waist), but you can alter it easily. If you've bought chinos between this time last year and now, it will be exactly the same.

 

 

This is so many kinds of gnarly.

Those boots are killer. And I fully support a picture of Chris in a 3XL Sean John suit...

Pretty much all of the fabrics stay in the Rivet Chino lineup have little shrinkage. We usually recommend leaving about a half inch in length unless you wash them before hemming, as it's the only place they really shrink.

 

If you have a more athletic build and think the thigh might be pushing it, I would recommend sizing up to a 31 and having the waist taken in. Of course, if you order a size and need to exchange it, we have a generous return policy for forum members.

Hi all. Looking for a little bit of advice. Am very keen to start my Epaulet wardrobe with a pair (or possibly 2) of pants but not sure which to go with. I work in a hospital so wear chinos or flannels almost everyday, and tend to live in chinos and denim outside work. Would greatly appreciate any advice on where to start ? Was thinking of caramel duck canvas walts ? Or maybe some rivets ?

Also just wondering about returns from Ireland ? Does the SF rule still apply ? 

Cheers guys !

(First post by the way !)

Brilliant. Looks like I was right - that was the last pair of 30s in Leaf!

Mike and Matt: in term of stiffness for the ducks, I know Caramel is the most. But are there any other colors that come close? I like the coarse texture!

I don't have the caramel ducks to make a comparison, but I have a pair of the Desert ducks and they're definitely pretty stiff. I've already worn them twice (washed once) and I'd definitely define the texture as coarse.

My Caramel Duck Canvas Rivets came in today and fit and fabric is exactly what I was hoping for. I'm a little concerned about the color...like I mentioned, I wear blue jeans almost exclusively and want to incorporate chinos into my wardrobe. I know a lot of you mentioned caramel being one of your favorite colors as it was so versatile, am I just a newbie who doesn't know complementary colors? Really want to shy away from the traditional khaki color. Maybe it's because most of my shirts are flannels and plaid, perhaps I should look into some more solid or simple patterns (I'm a Portlander who lives in Seattle...the dream of the 90s is alive)

 

Once spring rolls around, I'll likely grab a pair of white canvas shoes to pair with them, but are my rust colored Wolverine 1K's and dark brown Sperry's fair game, too?

 

Appreciate any help for the new guy! satisfied.gif

My french blue ducks actually feel stiffer than my caramel pair. Maybe it's because I wear and wash my caramels more often, so they're just getting softer with each wash/wear. I'm going to pick up either moss or desert next...probably both

I went to the Brooklyn store for the first time and it was great. I had not followed this thread, and didn't know much about the place except they had Carmina shoes. I went in to try them on for size, and (probably) made a pain in the ass of myself by trying on a zillion pairs of shoes and pants. In the end I left with some nice carminas, a couple of pairs of pants, and a shirt. I'd have bought more, but had to deal with some art gallery bullshit over the phone and ran out of time.

Adele is a peach, and if I had a men's store, I think (or I'd hope) that it would look a lot like Epaulet (except I wouldn't put chest pockets on the shirts .... ). Rest of the staff was also quite helpful.

Just an endorsement for people like me who are too lazy to read the previous 1226 pages.

Hmm. I have 4 ducks. In term of stiffness from most to least for me: Caramel, Optic White, and a tie between Plum and French Blue. All are 10 oz.

I'm not reading anything here that stands out as an ill advised combination. Suitability of Plaids and flannels will clearly depend on the colors in them. Nothing about those two general styles that can't go with caramel. Shoes sound fine too. White should look great. Brown too. Rust I'd think so.

Try some things out and post some photos here. People are generally very helpful and polite with advice. So polite that you may have to ask for a critical assessment of a specific fit.

I agree. Khaki chinos are so versatile. I have not found anything that has not gone with it yet.

I have caramel, leaf, and french blue, all 10oz, and the french blue are significantly stiffer than the other two. I bought them all at different times...I wonder if some batches just turned out stiffer than others, depending on when they were made.
