Thanks guys. My recent LBM in a 42 is a good fit, so I'll compare some measurements soon as I can. The extra bit of length on the 42 might help me out with the Doyle also. I've about convinced myself I need one for the spring and summer.

I hate to complicate things further but, as I understand it, LBM sizing is all over the place. I may not use that as a sizing reference

**Edit: if the LBM was an EP purchase than disregard the statement above, the LBMs from other retailers have been pretty variant though

There are two important questions to ask before folks here can accurately respond:

  • Where on the trousers is the hole?
  • What is the material?

A small hole on a cotton chino type fabric near a seam is going to be much easier to get repaired than a similar size hole in a cotton/cashmere or one of the nice wool fabrics smack dab in the middle of the thigh. Patterns in the fabric (POW, checks, etc.) will add to the difficulty.

Odds are though, if the hole is still really small and it's one of the basic rivet cotton chinos it can probably be repaired pretty easily by most competent tailors.

@duff406 you bought that LBM jacket from us, right? If so, our Vittiorio shape jives nicely with the Doyle, so go for a Doyle 42.

Thanks, MP. They're wool, and the hole is in the seat. I'm guessing they could be patched, but I'm not sure how visible it will be.

Thanks, good to know. I realized the standard placket is only really bothersome to me on the lighter fabrics I've been getting lately. It's not a problem at all on my oxfords and flannel shirts.

Also, has anyone ordered the robin's blue Canclini herringbone? I'd like to see that one made up.

Realized I have EP shirt and shoes today, both heavily worn in the rotation and looking even better after the wear.



post #53037 of 58682

got my first epaulet shipment in yesterday and here are some of my initial thoughts. 

 

Preface: I'm 5'8" with stocky dimensions and a wide neck

 

Ordered two of the henleys in a XL and received both white. Good thing i chose XL because it fits my body like a thermal and if I went any smaller it would have been tight everywhere with sleeves that would be an inch too short. Prolly hand wash and hang-dry as i know the dryer will zap it into unwearable. I gave one to my pops since he is a little smaller but he can shrink it a little for himself. I do like the material as it was what I wanted and hoped for so good in my book.

 

Got the trucker from the closing sale and didn't realize how soft and thin it actually was. Reminds me more of a mid to heavy work shirt, but that's fine with me since I can wear it like that or with a tee underneath for our bay area summer.. Got an XL again and only thing that was off is the arms are kinda long/wide like I seen from other comments above. Will try to shrink the sleeves down a bit this weekend.

 

Want to try the casual sneakers next but I need to go in store as that is prolly even harder for me to buy sight unseen without trying them on.

Finally getting all my Rivet chinos into the tailor to be tapered and re-hemmed to 1/4 or no break, going with a 7" leg opening on a pair to test first before they complete the lot.

Those pants are amazing - unspoilered because I had to post them again in their glory.
