Highly considering getting those as well

I'm surprised nobody mentioned the Crucial Dark Camel Cashmere yet, it looks like a steal at that price. I ordered it with cargo pockets, i really think it will be a pleasure to wear !

I have to say all fabrics looks fabulous, especially this first time seen wool corduroy, the Gold Herringbone Flannel or the Java Seed Stitch, i wish i could have 3 piece suits of all those fabrics !

So will I. That fabric can easily go both ways.

So much goodness in those flannels and colder weather pieces, so much!

For the Spring MTO trousers, is it possible to get both side tabs and suspender buttons? From experience with wearing suspenders with my other high-waisted trousers it is nice to start with a slightly bigger waist and then dial in the tightness with the side tabs.

Question on the high wasted trousers? Where should they hit or where do people like them to hit?  If I'm reading the sizing guidance correctly, it's 2.5 inches higher in rise than the Walt? That would probably be above the belly button and maybe above or right at the button of jackets. Does that sound about right?

Albeit, I have not tried Epaulet's high-waisted trousers yet, but I have 2 suits with high-waisted trousers that I wear with suspenders and that is exactly where I wear mine; right at the belly-button level.

@Epaulet

Can you describe the difference between Fields of Gold and the Dusty Saffron fabric offered last fall?

Wearin the Gables as I type this- waistband is right across the navel. Taylor would hit a little bit lower. Gables are just below the buttoning point of most modern jackets for me- creates a great look

@Duke Silver sure, we can do that. Either a 7" (Match Short)  or 9" (Walt Short) Inseam. You can choose the waist details as you like. It would be $15 less than the trouser price. Probably best to order through the site and email us right afterwards. We'll then refund you the $15 and confirm things. 

 

Plug for the Walt short. I have two and they're insanely comfortable. It's a great way to wear a bold or patterned fabric (mine are white/gray seersucker and japanese camo twill).

@Epaulet Mike, actual questions: the linen fabrics look incredible, but I'm wondering about how they'll wear in the summer in a shape as slim as the rivet chino.

 

One query: End 48, Streaky & Slubby Blue Linen, the pic says 100% linen, but the dropdown says linen/cotton. I'm wondering which is correct, and how cooling you think it would be in the NYC summer heat. I have another cotton-linen RC from another EFF and the fabric is actually quite heavy (though awesome).

 

In particular, compared to End 98 Supreme Natural Indigo Linen, or End 41 Blue Steel Slubby Pure Linen, which do you think would be best for dealing with the heat? Obviously linen has a reputation of being lightweight and gossamer etc, but in my experience some linens can trap sweat in a slim shape like the RC, so though the fabrics all look amazing I'm thinking hard about them in comparison to, say, the Blue Oxford Cloth in the cottons section, or a linen/cotton-linen Walt or Driggs MTO. Thanks!

Just grabbed the last pair of the mocha speckle, apparently. Also got a pair of the hot fudge. Was holding off, deciding if I wanted the cargo pockets... decided no, at the end of the day. But damn, tough choice.

Is the Tuff Guy khaki darker than the khaki canvas?

post #50954 of 57687

Apologies if this is a question answered earlier in this extensive thread, but does anyone have an opinion on current Walt sizing vs. either the pre May 2015 rivets or current sizing dimensions of the rivets? Looks from the measurements that a 34 in the current fit would be best, but just was curious if anyone who normally takes a 34 in walts has a different size opinion.

@litos man, that fabric went fast - 24 units yesterday. It's fantastic and totally wearable as a casual pant. You could match it with sneakers and a t-shirt without a problem.

@Faster yeah, they really brought out the big guns for this round. We've still got a bit of that Luxe Charcoal Herringbone fabric. If you guys need a great staple flannel trouser, than that's the ticket.

@loxo sure is! Just drop me an email after you place your order. 

 

If you buy the Gable or Taylor, it will come with the suspender buttons regardless.

@sacafotos

 

Sure thing. The main difference is that Saffron Donegal was an English Tweed and Fields of Gold is an Italian Flannel. Fields of Gold has a much softer hand and is a bit lighter weight. 

 

I'd also say that Fields of Gold is an easier color to match. It's a very saturated khaki with a golden tone, but it's as versatile as a standard khaki tone. Saffron was actually pretty yellow. That made it rad - as where can you find a tweed like that? - but it was a little unusual too. 

 

All of these Rivet Chino wool fabrics are very soft. That factory tends to go for lighter weight and softer yarns than Hertling. Which is also great for a place like SF - where temperatures are routinely cool but not really cold.

@Mr. Six yes, it's in between the Khaki Canvas and a British Khaki. I actually shot a video of it which I'll post up later this afternoon. We're going to build out a whole Medium.com page which shows all of the fabrics that we profiled. We were able to shoot videos of most of them. 

 

Let me know what you guys think of the videos. We're re-doing quite a bit of the new website and I'm thinking about integrating a section for vimeo into every product detail. It's pretty easy to shoot them. I'm able to offer personal thoughts and notes here, but routine visitors to the site never really see that. So I'm thinking that this can be a good way to get our personality apart and show off details that you can't capture in still photography. But we don't really have the capacity to make the videos very polished or edited.

@lebison yup, I'd advise going with a 34 Rivet Current fit if you take a 34 Walt. We sell guys the same size in both shapes all of the time. 

 

If the Walt 34 is really tight on you (like you're nearly a 35) then I'd advise sizing up to a 35 if you order a linen. Otherwise go for the same size. The Rivet has a more articulated shape and an unlined waist band, so it actually fits a little easier than the Walt.
