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.

Just out of curiosity, have you ever worn Rudy's? Curious as to how a Rudy fits compared to a Walt with the waist let out.

I know it's still September (barely) but any idea when fall/winter sport coat fabrics will make their way to the website?  I yearn for tweed this year.

@Nik Telford Cold Wash and hang dry all of the way. This fabric is essentially like the Viyella wool/cotton blend. 

 

Definitely keep it away from the dryer. It might be a bit stiff after the first wash (it also might not be, this stuff is pretty high end), but you can iron or steam it to soften it up if that's the case. Enjoy that awesome shirt!

@Viral yup, they're fully machine washable and they come rinsed to eliminate shrinkage. 


The belt loops are what we've always used for the Rivet Chino - it's so guys can wear them with thicker belts. It's up to your preference, but I think it looks totally fine with a dress belt - a lot of our customers wear it that way. If you want to give these a shot, I think that you'll be really impressed with how they feel.

@BespokeBrooklyn the color is certainly similar, but the feel and the weight are entirely different. 

 

Waxed cotton was used so much in English-made outerwear because it's perfect for their climate. It's relatively warm and very water-resistant. It's great for a cool, rainy day. In the UK and Northern Europe, it's cold right at the start of September, and there's a huge stretch of time where a Barbour or other waxed cotton jacket makes sense. 

 

In Brooklyn (just assuming that you're there), the lingering heat and humidity always made waxed cotton kind of uncomfortable until mid-October or so. It would be good for a while... and then I'd have to put it away in early Dec. It's pretty terrible at insulation, so I found it tough to keep warm even with layering. 

 

The Duck Canvas jacket is kind of the opposite - it's light and breathable. You can start wearing it right now, and it's effective until late Fall as long as you're layering underneath it. It works in warmer areas just great. The one weakness is that it won't keep water out. It's machine washable - so water isn't a problem - but you're going to get wet if you wear it in a pouring rainstorm. 

 

The color's great. If you have stuff that coordinates well with the waxed coat, then it will work great with the Field jacket too. And I think that you could wear it in a lot of instances where the waxed coat wouldn't work, comfort-wise.

Question about care for the Camo field jacket(which I freaking love).

 

When I got it I tried various washing methods to soften it up. I dried it with a bunch of Spaldings to pummel it.

 

Inside the jacket the label says tumble dry low but subsequent to me doing that I read here you had said to air dry it.

 

I notice now that the bottom of the armholes are a little tight. I can't recall if they were that way when I tried it on at first.

 

Do you think the tumble drying may have shrunk it a little?

 

Thanks.

 

@metranger8694 it's going to take quite a bit of wash and wear to soften this fabric, the Camo was really freaking tough. You're not getting shrinkage in the armholes.. it's more that the fabric contracts a bit after a wash. Just like a jean. Wear it a bit and you'll feel the armhole give more. I don't think that the low tumble would effect anything, but all of these canvas coats definitely shrink a bit in the length after their washing. Any shrinkage in the width will be temporary or minimal.

I've never worn the Rudys so hard to say and give appropriate feedback on it.

@Epaulet I'm on my phone so can't quote it all but I'm stoked because I needed those colors and I think the slight bit of stretch will be awesome.
