No, there wouldn't be any functional advantage - they come with a normal hem. If you like the look of chainstitching it might be nice, but it's pricey.

I would just ensure that the Selfedge staff can do it, as the chino fabric is radically lighter than their denim.

Cool. Will opt for cheaper route - just had some crazy ideas bouncing around in my head about chino drape that needed to be set straight.

how up to date is your website kept? When you get new navy rivet chinos will the site be automatically updated?

It's generally spot on, and we'll update it as soon as the new Navy's arrive. You can PM me to reserve a pair too if you like. They're about 3 weeks out.

Thanks brah!

Shirt arrived! (cross-posted from WAYWT) I was a little surprised by the fabric -- it feels very lightweight at first, but the 10% wool component makes it nice and toasty without the need for thickness. Very cool.

Oh, dude! These were an ebay SCORE. I don't recall the exact amount I paid but it was something in the neighborhood of $20. They're made by Stetson Shoe Company -- no relation to Stetson Hat Company, apparently. And, best I can tell, the company hasn't existed since 1973. These are probably from a bit before that. They originally came with full-leather "suicide" heels which wore out and I had replaced with half-leather half-rubber heels (I don't slip as much now ).

When I got them, they looked like they had been worn maybe 3 or 4 days total. I bought them with the intention of them being a pair of beater shoes but they've more or less turned into my favorite pair of shoes I own. The leather is super soft and buttery, the fit is perfect, and they're just insanely comfortable. The term "eipc" is tossed around way too much on the internet but this is one case where I'm tempted to use it.

I noticed a small spot of material near the back pocket on my tropical wool trousers has worn away, leaving a small hole. Sucks, because it's right next to pocket stitching, but it's still worn away material.

Not sure what caused it, since I don't keep anything in my back pockets. Maybe I've been wearing them to work to frequently (two-three times a week since July).

Awesome story. One of my first Longwings was a pair of cordovan "British Walkers," which I also picked up for around that price. I love it when a plan comes together!

These days, Ebay's vintage watch selection is my major vice. I sort by 1940-1969, "Buy It Now" and prices below $500. The things that come up are incredible.

Sorry to hear about that Alex. Tropical Wool is a pretty fine cloth, so you may have caught it on something without realizing it. But, a good tailor should be able to fix that. It's the Charcoal tropical wool, right - not one of the special order ones that we released? If so, I can send you a half yard of fabric so that you can get the hole patched.
post #2787 of 32620
Yeah, Mike, it's the standard charcoal tropical wool. I can send you a quick snap of the worn material so you can assess whether or not it's treatable.

I appreciate the offer, too. I hope it didn't come across as though I was questioning the quality of the trousers. This was just my roundabout way of asking if it's a fixable thing.
post #2788 of 32620
No problem, it's all love up in here!

Send along the pic. With extra fabric and a decent tailor, there's very few things that can't be fixed on proper trousers.

FWIW: any good re-weaver will be able to fix up the hole and will likely do a better job than a tailor. Also, Mike. I noticed pictures of scarves in the pop up store. Are they yours? Is there an eta for getting them online?
