Duffle looks good steel

If anyone is still sleeping on the Rotas, your handle needs to be RipVanWinkle.

Do the Buttero Linen Canvas sneakers run true to size or should I size down? I usually take a 10D or 43. I have a pair of Buttero pecos style boots and I had to size down to 42. TIA

How much can I take in the waist of the Rotas without messing with the remainder of the proportions? I'm a 33-34 inch waist, but need a 36/52 in the rotas to avoid pocket flair and get a nice drape. 34/50 works, but I think sizing up would be ideal. Would taking 3-4 inches off the waist be possible or do i stick with the 34s?

The Tanino runs one size large. Size 42 should be perfect for you.

I know what you mean about pocket flare. Rotas are cut pretty slim for their waist measurement. That said, taking in 3-4 inches means the center belt loops need moving and the pockets will practically touch in the middle. Not a good look/idea.

I would say take off two at the most

Definitely agree with DeSense here. Another option may be to let out the seat a bit on the smaller size. Not sure how much material is available in the Rotas off hand, but may be an option...

I've had several pairs of size 52 Rotas taken in to an approximate 50 waist (for the same pocket flair reason). My tailor either removes one belt loop and relocates another, or relocates both depending. I haven't had an issue with the back pockets ending up too close together, but you should ask your tailor what he thinks will happen to them once he's taken in the waist.

I'd say 1-2" is the max for taking in the waist. Rotas just don't fit everyone.

Taking the waist of trousers one full size (2") is OK and pretty standard for those who need more room in the thighs or calves. Taking it in two full sizes (4") is just too much
