I've owned five or six pairs of Rivets, wear them all the time, and I did have a button pop off once. But it was such an easy fix that my tailor didn't even charge me to sew it back on.

They stand up off of the fabric on a bit of thread so that there's space for the fabric around the buttonhole to go without putting extra strain on the thread/material. Much like the button on your suit coat.

It's easy enough that a bachelor could (and should be able to) do it at home by hand smile.gif

+1 for no issues on the two pair that I have with sewn-on buttons and one with metal rivet buttons.

Yeah, it's probably shanked.

This was the reason they switched from rivets to buttons so if they should bust, it would be an easy fix. I have about 7 or so pairs of rivet chinos and no issues on the buttons, knock on wood!

Bummed.  I picked up a couple Large shirts off the marketplace to test the sizing but it appears they are a tad tight in the chest but perfect everywhere else. Looks like I am an XL in Epaulet shirts.

 

Both shirts are no longer available and are very nice, and new & unworn.

I'm in the same debate right now, between L and XL. Usually can manage a L in WvG BD, although I'd prefer more room in the armholes and shoulders. Maybe an XL BD would work better.

The grading on the shirts is pretty close overall, so sizing up and then perhaps getting some length taken off by a tailor is pretty reasonable.

Also, hot wash and dry will def take a little off all around (though it can really vary by fabric IME)!

The different labels have diff fits...ie, Ashland, Epaulet house, Epaulet Navy and even Epaulet Italia if i recall correctly. Which ones do you have?

I placed my forced order with Epaulet on Tuesday night. Still havent gotten the shipping confirmation email. How long does it usually take? The website says 1-2 days if I'm not mistaken.

You're fine man. Tuesday night, you figure they see it Wednesday morning, two days = Friday afternoon latest. Have never been let down by Mike&Co.

I think you posted this same question in the Howard Yount thread after you made a purchase... slow down there, it'll come.

Thanks guys was just making sure. Definitely love the customer service from HY and Epaulet!

Hi, I was looking at some of the Rivet Chinos and am definitely interested in making a purchases.  That said, I have large thighs for my waist - moreso than the listed measurements on the website permit.

 

Are there different fits possible for the Rivet Chinos?  If it helps, I'd be looking for a 33" waist pant that would fit on 26-26.5" thighs.  Thanks!

Been patiently (not my strong suit) waiting for my first Rivets to arrive. I ordered them last Saturday and it is Thursday night and they still aren't here frown.gif I would have thought New York to Boston would be much quicker...

New arrivals up. Nice Ashland multi-color gingham.
