Speaking of Rudy's, how is the pre-order from May coming? Any updates?

I shot a photo as we were leaving the park. It's beautiful.

Edit: ^ FrankCowperwood: Agreed, that picture is unstoppable. Name is unreal. We'll definitely name something the Bassett, although the Bassett Bassett might be pushing it. I've got two Ludwig Reiter shoes to name, and he definitely looks like a single monk kind of guy.

Well, I can buy the single monks and call the left one Bassett and the right one Bassett, then I'll have Bassett Bassett.

The Third Man is a fantastic movie. It has substance and visual panache, along with that killer zither on the soundtrack.

QFT, photo of the Riesenrad is beautiful. And I like this bold combination, wj4.

I'm ready to sign up as manager of the LA store. Also, I'm still kind of mad at Dylan for taking the last pair of the black Chelsea boots in my size. They look awesome. I'm tempted to try to squeeze into 11s

This.

So I need some help picking out my next trouser purchases...the summer heat here in Tampa is just starting to become brutal, so I'm looking for some non-wool options. I have a few linen pairs, but I'm really looking for some cotton this time around. There's regiment twill, steep twill, and sanded UK canvas, and I know I've read a ton about them but I'm still a little unsure of the pros/cons of each.

I'm really just looking for a few staple pairs I can wear to work - mostly business casual environment (sometimes professional depending on the day), and mostly in an A/C office. There is some light travel and I am outside for short periods here and there, so I definitely don't want anything too thick an heavy. Thanks gents!

I'd recommend the Duck Canvas Walt's - fits your criteria!

The steep twill is a heavy fabric. I don't think that will fit the bill. The regiment twill is not too heavy, but I think it will be too hot for Florida summers. Sanded UK canvas seems like the best choice of the three.

How well do those hold a crease? I have some Rivets in Duck canvas and I love that fabric for casual wear. I'd like to try and get the "dressiest" cotton option if I can.

As well as my Wool Walt's...

I have handled all three fabrics. Frank's is the best advice for your purposes. The sanded UK is the dressiest option.

I was actually curious about this. Are the Walt version of the ducks as good for summer as the Rivets? Lining doesn't affect it?

Thanks guys, since I already have some Duck canvas Rivets, I wanted to try something different for these. I'll give the UK canvas a shot, hopefully there's enough leftover fabric to cut some Rudys.

Thank you! You're going to love those - I'm still in awe of how nicely they made up.

Yes, I'd agree with the other guys: Sanded UK canvas is the best dressy cotton trouser for hot weather. The Duck Canvas would work as well, but it has a more casual weave. No cotton trouser can hold a crease as well as a wool one, but mine stay creased for quite a while. You'll love them - the hand is great and they're very comfortable to wear.

For reference on the other two fabrics: Steep Twill is absolutely a cooler weather fabric. It's just a bit lighter than moleskin. And Regiment Twill is good for Summer in many places, but not where it's too hot. It's a pretty tough weave - along the lines of a typical "khaki" pant.

Absolutely. The Walt Ducks are not lined at all. The Rivet Chinos can be a little cooler on the top as they have a less complex waistband, but that's a small difference. They essentially feel the same

Awesome thanks! One last question regarding the sandedUK canvas - I'm typically a 33 or 34 Rudy guy, some of my heavier weight wools fit perfect in a 33, but lighter pants like Super 120s medium grey and linen pants seem to fit me tighter in the thighs, so I'll go up to 34 and get the waist taken in. Should I do the same for sanded UK canvas? If these are machine washable, I assume it's probably better to plan on some minimal shrinkage, and I'm sure it's also easier to take in the waist rather than let out the thighs and seat.

recently picked up the purple gingham shirt on sale and duck canvas rivets in desert.  

 

the gingham shirt is legit--was worried about the color--but it's the right shade--a staple--guessing only on sale because you guys got new point collars in.

 

the rivets are the first ones i got since you guys changed the fit and switched over to the new buttons.  really like it.  i think it has a higher rise and it fits more comfortably.  duck canvas appears to be the perfect material for a pair of chinos.  looking at the moss now.

 

any new shirts on the horizon? need some stuff to tide me over before mto comes back
