Get them cuffed. The leg opening is pretty narrow so probably can't get a full break. Get as much break as possible without having the trousers become stacked. Let your tailor be the guide. The trousers are high rise so getting them hemmed too short will make them look unbalanced.

Thanks for the input @bry2000. smile.gif

I usually don't get cuffs on my trousers, ever, because I have disproportionately short legs, but could be persuaded to make a change.. biggrin.gif

Also, major props to the @Epaulet crew for getting the closing sale items out to me so fast. I went for expedited shipping to make sure I'd have a larger selection of ties for my cousin's wedding at the end of month. Thanks for throwing in some socks too! smile.gif

Sir - no break to minimal break. 5cm cuff.

Contemplating getting a pair of Gables - I think I would get them a little tapered down to a 6.5-6.75 inch leg opening and then have a 1.5-1.75 in cuff. Would this look too crazy with the chunkier top block?

I think it would look ridiculous. And not in a good way.

I think my time has come to graduate but am hesitant to pull the trigger on MTO until I know if they'll work for me.

I have about 20 pairs of 33 waist Rudy. If nobody offers them up you can try a pair on for fit.

Amazing. I'll take you up on that!

There's nothing weird about meeting someone to try their pants right? 😐

No no. Perfectly regular. Go ahead and try on his pants. wink.gif

6.75? Are you a flamingo?

Does the Walt trouser have the same thigh opening as the Rivet Chino?

 

Or do you think the Rivet is slimmer in the thigh?

@ReversoLover it's really up to your taste. I've definitely seen pictures of extremely tapered single-pleats - especially MTM pieces - floating around the internet.

 

The existing Gable taper was a strong as I wanted to go for our design, but if you've got slim legs and you like a slimmer leg opening, then why not? You an always have the tailor pin it to that measurement and try it on. That's probably the only way to really tell.

@cyclohexane it was our pleasure, and have a great time at the wedding!

 

And yes, I'm totally in agreement with @NewYawker on his suggestions. 

He is actually the undisputed king of both the Gable Trouser and the Artisan Collar. We all defer to him on any points regarding those.

@Mghart they look awesome on you! I'm glad that you picked them up, I remember then fitting you great in the shop.

All 3 colors are awesome, I couldn't decide!

 

@Gambletrade can't go wrong with that combo! Thanks for your order. We've got enough leather for about 7 more black bags.

@konadog ahhh, I think that you'd find it heavy. We do have dudes in SoCal who really like heavy tweeds and flannels, but I don't believe you're one of those dudes. I wasn't really either. I remember wearing wool hopsack shorts nearly every day.

@MrOriginal ahh sorry for the delay on that, trying to get another kid to model the 4-5 YO size. There's a zip sweater and a button mock neck model. We should have this up next week, and yes, you guys should absolutely be matching! 

 

The kids' stuff makes faster and uses a lot less yarn, so we're not that time-sensitive on it. Even with the later order date, we'll still get these at the same time as the adult stuff

@fal32 yup, absolutely. It's a really nice one too. Thanks for asking that.

@jvillal thanks for asking this - I meant to write a bit about it. 

 

Let me clarify the water-resistance thing. This bag is not water-proof. Filson makes something like that, and a true water-proof bag means that you can place it into a stream and nothing gets through. But that's a technical bag, and it looks the part. I think that the Filson bags are cool, but they're not really jiving with stuff that we sell like sportcoats and dress trousers and the like. 

 

If you want a leather bag - and a classically styled one - then Saffiano is one of the most "technical" materials out there. Water rolls right off the surface, so the leather itself won't be stained or darkened. That's a real concern if you're caught in a big storm with a traditional calfskin or cowhide bag. It's also very strong for its weight. 

 

The zipper isn't a waterproof zipper, but it doesn't really have to be. If you're walking around in a rainstorm with this, any water coming through the zipper or the seams is going to be negligible. I've carried a Vuitton duffle for years, and their material mix (normal zipper, cotton canvas coated with P/U) is a similar setup to our bags. I've never had any issues with the contents of the bag getting wet in a rainstorm. Although this is with normal traveling and commuting. You wouldn't want to take the Saffiano weekender on a huge mountain hike in the rain if you could avoid it. 

 

I was really inspired by this leather because it both looks very cool and it has a range of practical benefits. It's very rarely used in shapes like this, so it's also cool to bring something special to the market. If I put out a normal leather weekender, I'd just be doing the same thing as a bunch of other brands, although slightly cheaper and better. That certainly works for a lot of brands, but frankly our guys are often expecting something more than that. You'll really be delighted by these in person.

I probably should say "when" as opposed to "if". biggrin.gif

 

@cyclohexane we've had a great reception so far - about 20 units sold! I've always struggled with bags in the past, so this is already a big success for us! The factory is really amped too. 

 

More leathers may be possible, but it's a bit difficult. We were able to get these in smaller minimums because they are the three most popular colors at the tannery. They do all sorts of other rad colors, but the minimums would be really big. We're planning to roll out some other shapes though - so it may be possible down the road.
