Sure thing, the next trouser factory finds and Rudy order round will go up next Friday. The process is:
1. I scan swatches of leftover/short run fabrics that we can make into trousers. I pay a bit less for them, so they're typically around 20 or 30% cheaper than our in-season trousers. You can order sizes 28 through 40, including odd sizes. Not only is the price less, but you get access to some really unique fabrics that we couldn't ordinarily offer.
2. The swatches stay up for one week or until the individual fabrics are sold out. Some fabrics can yield 24 trousers, some only 2 or 3.
3. We place the order with the factory and cut it exactly to order. All sales are final for this reason
4. The trousers are delivered between 6 to 12 weeks later. We need this long window because the factory will only put them into work when they have the open capacity

Mike, could you post up the measurements for the size 35 Walt? I'd be curious to see what the change to 35 waist would do to the pattern measurements. I typically reduce the waist by .5" to .75" on my 36 Walts, so it'd be great to know where it would end up with the waist, thigh, and leg opening measurement on the odd size down. Thanks!
I've seen a few different opinions on staying the same size or sizing up for Walts. Website says they're same but just want to make sure I get my factory finds order right.
I have about 10-12 rivets all in 33 but don't have any Walts. The lighter weight ones seem a bit roomier in the waist than the heavier weights but all fit well. Would you recommend sticking to 33 in Walts?
I love my Epaulet in-house Mediums, particularly the slimness in the torso/waist/arms, but I've lately been thinking I might need a little more room in the shoulders and chest. It looks like an Epaulet Large and an Ashland Medium have identical shoulder/chest measurements. Of those two, which one is slimmer in the waist, or is otherwise closer in over all fit to an Epaulet Medium?
