And if anyone makes this up as a double breasted with gold buttons, we will figure out a completely insane gift to include with it. Really, something totally off the wall, as that would be seriously fantastic.

Hmmm. Mike! I'm going to call you tomorrow. Which store will you be at? If it wasn't midnight in NYC, I'd call you now. foo.gifshog[1].gif

Greatly appreciate any feedback on the fit of a 38R Napoli - I'm 6'1 165ish.

Thanks, this is exactly the issue I'm having.

What size are you? I'm curious since my size 31s come with 7.5" leg openings.

Do the rivet chinos fit true to size? If I'm a size 30 for most trousers, I'll want a size 30 in the rivets, correct?

post #20691 of 33620

You might need to size up 1. I'm 29-30 in most denim or trousers, and had to go with 31 in the rivets

^^ I find rivets to fit true to size. I take a size 32 in anything that fits TTS, including Walts, and take a 32 in rivets. I only wear smaller sizes in items that are vanity sized, like most raw denim. If you're between two sizes, then erring on the larger size is a good idea.

get out a measuring tape and check the actual waist of a pair of pants that fit you well. they have the exact measurements on site for you to compare, and you can adjust them in our out as needed.

Fit looks good to me. As always, the important thing is to make sure you are comfortable with the fit in the shoulders, i.e., you have a comfortable range of motion when moving your arms naturally and there isn't obvious pulling across the shoulder blades. Those are a couple of things I look for. The shoulder fit does look good in the head-on shots. When you turn to the side, the left shoulder looks as if it is pulling up a little, but that's clearly a function of the pose. If it's comfortable, then you are good.

In the body, you could probably have the waist taken in a hair, but only if you wanted to. I don't see it as necessary.

Speaking of rivets, are the FF rivets still set to ship out in the near future?

Wore sanded canvas Walts yesterday:

Thank you. I noticed that shoulder issue from the side too.

I think I need to wear it in the house for a bit to test it out as you say to ensure it's comfortable to move around in.

If I decide to keep it I may look at nipping the sides as you mention.

A jacket is definitely going to have a break in period, even one that's constructed with a light hand such as the Napoli.

To my eye, you look like you are about 98% of the way to a really outstanding fit on this.
