For me, they just fit way too slim. I probably should have sized up. I took a 32 in the OS Burgundy trouser, and I take a 50 in the Rota trousers. The waist and rise was fine with the OS, but the thighs were much, much tighter on the OS's that on the Rota's. I will try on again later, and post more comparisons.
Thanks for the feedback. I am a standard EU50/US34 in most pants, but I thought I might size down for OS because of the listed measurements. I have meaty thighs as well (wear the Epaulet Rudy rather than Walt), so it sounds like I should stick with the 34. Are you a standard 34 in most pants, and if so, why did you buy the 32?
Based on the measurements provided, I thought the 32 would work. I am a standard 34 in most pants, and I figured that the OS would fit roomier. They do in the waist and the rise is fine. But thighs and calves ain't going to work. I also don't like my clothes fitting too slim.
OK, I've been following for almost 300 pages here and am not sure it's been mentioned - who can tell me about the little NMWA plastic thingy that comes w/ a shirt - something to do w/ reattaching buttons?
They are basically snap in threads for buttons. So if a button falls off, those prongs snap together to hold the button down in place. I think they are actually a 'permanent' replacement for the button threads. Edited by larryr - 1/16/14 at 9:26am
Quick shout out for a great selection, great customer service, great packaging, and super prompt shipping.
I ordered a Drakes scarf and PS, this past Sunday (I know, I'm a high roller)
I received a polite and apologetic e-mail from NMWA Monday informing me that due to a stock error, the Drakes scarf was out of stock. I found a similarly priced Begg & Co scarf in a similar color, and we agreed to change my order to the Drakes PS, and Begg scarf. Tuesday morning I receive the shipping confirmation. Wednesday, I receive the package! Thursday, I am wearing my new scarf.
All in all, NMWA is a class outfit with a great selection, and even better that personal touch.
Also, I am glad someone explained the button fasteners earlier in the thread...
