Got my Speckled Chambray Rivets and Wilshire Indigo in 33. Apparently sizing up from my tight 32's was a mistake, although the jeans are awesome.

If anyone has a Wilshire in 32 that wants to exchange up to a 33, let me know!

Thanks, I like them. There does seem to be a bit of room under the arm in the back, perhaps the shirts were made for someone with bigger lats. But it's an XS.  This seems like it would be a bit complicated to alter, yes?

@docalden2013 thank you my friend! I'm definitely on the mend with some good meds. And working from home awaiting deliver of AoM shell NST Tanker boots smile.gif

Work at home gear...EP crew neck and 3sixteen denim.

Got my Grey Wilshires from the clearance sale yesterday.  Sad to see the Wilshire cut go but I completely understand why.  

 

I have the Eggshell and Grey Wilshires now.  I'm really glad I snagged the Grey.  It's almost a Steel Blue/Grey color.  Looks great.  Plus the Wilshire fit is perfect on me.  I can't decide if I like the fit of 3sixteens or the Wilshire more...no question now but I think I'm set on denim for a few years.  

 

Would be cool to see the Wilshire fit come back in small capsules eventually...it's too good to never see the light of day again.

My rule of thumb has always been that if I can't button them all the way up, they are too tight

In my experience, the jeans will stretch eventually. With Ep jeans as well as with other brands, there are many paths to stretching nirvana. When I've encountered pairs where buttoning top buttons is potentially painful, I try to soften the denim by buttoning and unbottoning the jeans (while not wearing them...) repeatedly until the buttonhole material relaxes. Once the buttons become more cooperative (the criteria would be whether one could reasonably unbutton and then button the pants quickly enough to get in and out of a bathroom trip without taking too much time), I try the jeans on one to two hours at a time. The waistband will still be snug, but eventually it will relax. To accelerate stretching, I've also taken a 6- or 8-lb medicine ball and placed it into the top block and swung the jeans around for several minutes at a time. When the jeans feel just about ready for showtime, I might sleep in them every other night for a week or two just to get some stretching in the thighs as well.

 

This may seem a bit obsessive, but I have erred on the other side and ended up with a few pairs of selvedge denims that ended up feeling too saggy, particularly around the waist. I think it's better to get the fit on the slimmer side (think a rivet chino fit that eventually loosens). Of course, YMMV and of course, I still don't look as stellar in the jeans as Tricky, but hey, who does? He looks better than most even when sick with pneumonia. (Glad you're feeling better, Tricky, btw!!)

WOW! commitment man

I asked a few days ago as well and didn't hear anything. It was the Como though.
