post #47416 of 59418

Guys, quick question - looking to pick up a pair of EP khaki/beige pants for work. What is more appropriate, duck or military twill? They don't have to be wool, I have that covered. Thanks.

Chances are that if you can get away with one, you can get away with the other.  The military twill is probably "less casual" by a small margin.  Maybe that margin widens over time because the duck will fade more with wash and wear.

Twill is slightly more work-oriented as the texture is a bit smoother and less pronounced. Canvas is slightly more rough and textured. I have both and wear both to the office, though

I have English drill 10oz in the darker khaki and it's perfect. Soft hand too.

Great to know since I have a pair of Rudy's in that fabric on order.

ivy marled looks great in the shetland. I'm hoping there are plans to restock a 40(L) in the future? If not I might have to settle for a color I don't like as much :(

Nice! I have the Lovat from last year actually. It's really great as well. My girlfriend wants me to pick up the pumpkin as well, though im generally pretty apprehensive about wearing any red or orange tops since im a ginger.

I think that's a personal perference. Just like denim, some people roll their denim while some others don't. I usually roll my rivets when I aim for a more casual look. And I don't like rolling my rivets which are made with more formal fabric such as wool/silk blend.

 

For the size of the cuff, that's a personal perference as well. I am 5'7 and I usually go for 1.25' to 1.5' cuff. But someone like @TO Tie Guy like to go for a big single cuff and I think it looks great as well. But I certainly don't recommend a big cuff for people under 6", it'll like you are wearing your father's pants.

Either will be fine with twill being slightly cleaner looking IMO.  Tuck in a nice button down shirt and put on some nice shoes, and you can take the look almost anywhere.  Some guys even throw on a knit tie if you can pull it off. 

 

 

I find cuffing the rivet, exposing the seam tape makes it more casual.  If you don't think that will fly hem them.

 

I have both hemmed and un hemmed (cuffed) never really had a question or look about the cuff.  Maybe once, but it was more out of curiosity than "that isn't appropriate" type question...

Seems like a great price and a very rich color?

I have one, it's a great scarf! It isn't as soft, and doesn't drape as nicely as Johnston's cashmere line, but the colour is rich, and the wool has a pleasant springiness.

I have the claret scarf, too. Very nice and soft. Not cashmere, but soft.

Wasn't there a heavy shirt jacket coming from New England Shirt Company this fall? I was trying to use the search function to find the photos again to no avail. Was I just dreaming things or is this something I should still be expecting?
