How is that tobacco linen treating you? I had picked up one a couple seasons ago, and got around to wearing it this summer. I don't wear my pants tight, but the seam on the seat started to pull away at the weave; I had my tailor reinforce it, but it started to pull away at the edges of the reinforcements. I was disappointed, as I didn't even get to wear it for a whole season.
In contrast to my very first pair of Epaulet trousers - a Walt indigo Italian linen, which I actually wore for five summers(!).
They've been great for me so far. They're on the looser side so no issues with too much tension on the seam. And the material is pretty robust for how light and cool-wearing it is.
