My question exactly. I ordered a 36. And -- as I think Mike indicated they would be -- these are definitely tighter in the seat/thighs than the standard Rivets. There's very little in the seams to let out. And the stitching doesn't look like it wants to be messed with either way (to the manufacturer's credit).
I'm pretty close to deciding they're just a little too snug. But I'm hoping I can convince myself they'll stretch. Otherwise I'm probably going to have to return, which would be a bummer because these things are terrific.
@MKELLY these guys are a thick, pre-washed twill, so you can treat it a little bit like a jean. I wouldn't advise anyone to size down for stretch, necessarily, but if they're just a bit tighter than you'd like, then you can expect them to give quite a bit.
Measurement-wise, the Cramerton's are about a half-inch smaller in the waist and a quarter-inch less in the thigh than our standard non-washed Rivets. But they stretched to about spec with a few hours of fit testing. If you own a Rivet in another fabric in 36 and if fits, then this should get there pretty quickly.
@Epaulet any cotton/linen blend shirting coming for spring/summer?
@etostano absolutely, I'm sure that they'll be a lot. We set up those categories of "Spring 16 Casual" and "Spring 16 Dress" so that I can load in new fabrics every week. The current lineup isn't crazy Summer, but everything that we're featuring is relatively lightweight.
If you need any new dress shirts, then getting 15% off the really premium stuff is an especially fantastic deal. Looking at the last letter of the codes, anything in a W, X, or Z range is going to be extremely luxurious - and nicer than most OTR shirts from any maker.
