I'd say you should size up. 

 

Plus, the Epaulet trousers are closer to your true waist than what other stores might sell. I can fit in to 34 from some brands, but I had to go with 36 for the Walts.

Probably my favorite type of Epaulet trousers. I just ordered the khaki version but am sad that I didn't get a chance to pick up the navy in my size.

Here's a recent picture of myself wearing the gunmetal version for those of you interested in what it looks like. I would describe it as a medium grey that's approaching dark grey but not quite there yet tongue.gif

Thanks for that. I just ordered a pair.

Thanks. Me too.

I bought a FF sport coat recently too. I am going to look good but cash poor.

1. Size 26 to 42, with all odd sizes possible
2. All Inseam lengths (anywhere from 28 to 40", by 1" increments)
3. 5-6 different colors of herringbone taping - or no herringbone taping at all
4. Bunch of different pocket options (flaps, coin pocket, welts, etc)
5. Button or zip fly - with a bunch of different buttons to choose from
6. Range of existing cotton fabrics with things like wool flannel and tweed coming on for the Fall.

So this will absolutely be an option. Turnaround will be fast as well - generally 3-4 weeks.

mike - this might be a long shot, but would it be possible to bring back the original metal rivets as an mto option? or is the hardware/tooling not available anymore? i prefer metal rivets and i love all my old pairs. this is gonna be a sweet mto program, so i'll need to try and identify some gaps in my rivet collection to fit in another pair or two in. biggrin.gif

I'm close to securing a job and having a significant raise. Is it too bad if I'm already thinking of how much more Epaulet I'll be able to afford? biggrin.gif

(also, I might get another opportunity to apply for a visa once more)

I've been wearing my clay rivets for about week now and they are my new favorite pair of pants (trousers for those across the pond). Along with a pair of khakis these are my first rivets so nods to Epaulet's quality are in order. Amazing construction, fit is fantastic, service is great, details are pleasant, fabric is soft and tough. Now about the clay rivets. The color is perfect for southern California. I'd argue its more versatile than either khaki or white for a warmer climes. White can seem sharp and affected if you live anywhere where white things can't be expected to stay white for long. Khaki can sometimes carry office connotations, especially in places where standard office dress is firmly wedged between the expectations of "no jeans" and "no ties". Clay hits the middle and looks good in its own right. I would love to see Epaulet make it in duck canvas. (MTO Program?)

I plan to wash these pants and forgo the dry cleaning process. Would that be smart? 

easy to have altered if you find the waist a bit too big after washing

I haven't found them to really shrink, but with cotton it's always better to take in than let you.  Cotton will show ANY previous stitch lines and color differences from fading.

These babies arrived today. They're gorgeous. A bit snug and quite stiff but they fit.

Anyone have experience with how they'll break in?

Are they that color blue in the sun? Or darker navy
post #22168 of 32664
Not sure how you're viewing - on my iphone they appear dark and they're quite dark blue in person. So pretty accurate I think.

Curious how you sized them - Did you go by their guide to your TTS?
