Cripes; I don't think I've ever seen a linen done in a twill before. That looks super nice!

Beige linen twill

Greg - any chance the make up of these new rotas^^^ will be a bit more relaxed - generous in the rise and maybe less slim in the leg - since they'e warm weather oriented?

I have to agree. Those Beige linen twill look bangin'.

They're the exact same style/pattern as the winter one.  I doubt they're cut differently although the material will feel/drape/stretch differently from a heavy flannel.

The Heschung Genet is one of the nicest looking chukkas I've seen and I have a lot of chukkas.

Was there just one pattern for the winter Rotas? From the measurements, it seemed the wool ones had a more relaxed fit. (I only have one pair in cotton.)

It's the same model but when made in Rota "Sport" fabrics (like the cottons), they're a very slight bit trimmer.   I don't think anyone wears different sizes in wool or cotton (Rota vs Rota Sport) but I may be wrong.

Can someone compare the fit between the rota trousers and the Epaulet Walt's, I remember someone mentioning that the materials rota uses is more substantial, but I can't remember any mention on how the fits are different. Thanks. Those linens look beautiful...
post #6310 of 15633
they are pretty similar, the walts are perhaps a touch trimmer and i think with a smaller rise (could be wrong about that, just saying that based on how they feel to me), but they both fit me nicely.

I had the exact same dilemma (same sizes, even!) and so never ordered. If you get one of the suits, please report back.

We offer free returns, so that should lift any blocks to purchase based on sizing uncertainty.  Measurements are only going to get you so far and often garments are not measured exactly the same way.   Trying it on in your home is a better approach.

Love the white jeans. Is the slim straight fit in between regular straight and slim tapered?

Pretty much.  It's the slim top block of the slim tapered but with the straight leg of the Regular Straight.   It's a nice cut
