Unfortunately, my chino game sucks right now - will be rocking with jeans until I cop some rivet chinos!

A question for Mike about shirt darts: couldn't you achieve the same fit without them? My understanding is that they are typically an alteration move after the fact, but that the same fit could be had the first time using the correct pattern.

mike, thanks for helping me out.

yet another shirt to add to the collection, legit.
pants, pretty good, though i'm going to get them tailored to be size 31. wish you guys did mid sizes. 30 made me get some pocket flare.

desmond sportcoat, really great. i love the fit. really slim, great details. feels like i'll enjoy it for another ten years, and a really great price. i'm a size 36, fits perfectly, just need to get the sleeves shortened. the jacket fits like a 38s in theory if anyone ever buys that around here.

This is a typical "MC logic" misconception. The darts allow there to be more fabric in the shoulder and upper back while keeping the lower back trim. Slimming the shirt from the sides may get you close but it does not achieve exactly the same effect.

Think about a suit jacket. By your logic, all suits should be sack suits because they could just be made slimmer on the sides.

Hey Mike, I just learned that I'll have an interview for a job this friday and just thought this would be the perfect opputrunity to get myself one of your amazing chinos! Two questions: 1) I'm thinking going with Navy since it's probably the most versatile, but would you suggest any others? 2) If I order it tomorrow, is there any way to make it arrive before friday if I live in Canada? Even though I may not receive them in time, if I get the job I'll probably buy a pair or two nonetheless.

any update with the hip measurement for the 34?

Can someone with a 34 measure straight across, starting at the bottom seam of the pocket, like here, where the red square is:


I have the british khaki chinos in size 34. Pocket seam to pocket seam is 19.5", laid flat they measure 21" across. Hope this helps.

Is this an accurate representation of how Epaulet trousers fit?

I'm looking for some slim (not skinny) trousers with a higher rise and so I was all ready to order, but then I saw the photos of Mr. Asscheeks here.

nah they're not that tight. the guy has his hands in his pockets.
post #4572 of 37581
^^ and may have sized down. Those do look really tight. The fit pics of the merino wool are more representative IMO.
post #4573 of 37581
that's about how they fit me though when I tried them on in manhattan cause of my ba-dunk-a-dunk unless i sized up and take in the waist. But between this option and the rudy you should be able to get a good fit even if the walts are snug in your size. Anyway ordered the hoyt jeans and a red/cream japanese madras short sleeve. excited for both.

Not exactly. Darts are a common tailoring technique, but they're used in a lot of OTR shirting too. Mostly European brands.

For our shirts, they (1) give a sculpted lower back and (2) allow the shirts to work for both slim and athletic physiques. You can use top pleats or a really aggressive torso cut to keep the back slim, but then the shirt can feel restrictive if you've got broad shoulders or you want extra room in the abdomen. One shirt can't fit everyone, but the mix of techniques that our pattern uses allows it to fit a wide range of physiques.

Thank you - and really glad that everything is working out so well!

Not that exact item, but we'll surely do another purple-toned Gingham this season. I'm actually thinking of running one as a cutaway collar.

Yup, Navy's a great choice. Both that and the Charcoal Herringbone are the most easily dressed up. You can order it with Express Mail and there's a good chance that you'll get it by Friday, but I honestly can't be sure. A lot of that depends on where you live in Canada and how quick your local customs office processes it. But it you order today, we can get it shipped out in the morning.

Thanks for measuring - these numbers are spot on!
