I wear a 28 in Walt and a 29 in Rivet. What's the going advice for Driggs sizing?

If I go with a 28 in Driggs the waist measurement would be the same as the Walt (29") but the rise would be 1.5" lower.

If I go with a 29 in Driggs the waist measurement would be even larger than I wear in Rivet (30" vs 29.5") but the rise is 1" higher.

Crap.

Awesome combo! Hopefully I can snag a pair of the whiskey LHS down the road.

I imagine that you'll get different responses on this as everyone's upper and lower waist varies, but I wear the same size in the Walt, Rivet and Driggs. While I like the Rivet, I really like the Driggs for a casual chino given the slimmer leg. It just fits me better. I'm looking forward to more Driggs offerings here soon. The Walt is the perfect combo for trousers IMO.

I typically wear 30 in Walt and a 31 in Rivet. I just tried on the Driggs for the first time today. I actually find the 30 Walt to be just a little bit loose on me now, and the 30 Driggs with a lower rise fit me better.

Maybe if the 28 Walt is a tight fit for you, you can go with a 29 Driggs. Honestly, though, like MrClemson says, you will hear all sorts of different advice. You can always tailor the seats. See what works for you in the thighs.

I assume cold wash, gentle cycle, cold rinse...without detergent?

You don't have to worry about bleeding with this - it's already been fully rinsed. The only care for this is:

1) Wash with dark colors only on cold water
2) Hang dry

You could dry it on low heat in a machine, but that will fade everything out evenly. If you want a great contrasting fade then stick with cold wash/hang dry at all times. This will age beautifully.

Sure, and thanks for checking in. I don't want to overpromise on this, but it's still in development. My LA production of this item started to get dragged out about two months ago and I'm still working on a fully corrected sample.

I've got a great patternmaker over there, but I've learned a harsh reality of this time period. There's a ton of wholesale production based out of LA and Jun-July is when these brands are doing the bulk of their samples. They have to get everything ready for the tradeshows - and this is for both mens and womens. As a result, everything is freaking slammed. Patternwork takes forever. Wash and dye houses are booked out. Sewing the samples is hard. February is the same thing, but since we had a baby then, I wasn't too focused on samples. This is just a lousy time to do development, and I should have been pushing harder back in April when we were 90% of the way there. Oh well - live and learn! We should get that on track shortly, but I can't really estimate a date on it. I'm just doing development on all fronts and trying to keep a steady stream of new product flowing in.

Yes, we've got some good Walts on deck. But we'll be stocking mostly basics for the season and the majority of colorful and out-there fabrics will be available for MTO. I'll kick out that MTO program around the second week of August, and there's a killer amount to choose from!

For sweaters, this will be the long awaited return of the Epaulet x Northern Watters "Heirloom" Shawl Cardigan. We've got it coming in a range of fresh colors.

There's a bunch of Scottish sweaters: crewnecks, shawl pullovers, Hardie Cardigans

And we'll build out our fleece selection further with more crewnecks and hoodies. I've got a nice buy coming from Reigning Champ as well - with includes a bunch of very heavyweight fleece items.

Will the fishermens sweaters from last year be making a return appearance?
post #31869 of 36644
Any plans for a floral print shirt or something like that? Looking to diversify beyond my standard solid, gingham, and plaid.

Also, the chambray shirts you mentioned a few pages back: what will be the differences between the EPLA and the EPNY models?
post #31870 of 36644

5'6", broad-shouldered/short torso frame here. Debating whether I can pull off the Kamigata in a Medium, what do you guys think?

 

I'll probably just try it out and return it....

Cargos today, FTW.

Nice combo, B. Waiting to get my petrol blue Walts hemmed. Sadly, I'm told the tailor won't be in until after I've begun a very long day of work. Grrr...
