anyone willing to sell these or know where I can still pick up one?
thanks

I did just this. Pants in 30 and Andover in Medium. Looks like the Andover is sold out at The Mens Market though but you should be able to find it in these shops:

Del Store
Fott Shop
Hirshleifers (The Mens Market)
Jack Straw
Mohawk
Peggs & Son
The Bureau
WP Lavori

Regarding the pants in size 30 your last chance should be Del Store in Hong Kong, they ship internationally though at standard rates. Listed stores are US & EU + China.
Have not listed stockists in Korea or Japan.

They quoted me $180 to Norway so no unfortunately not :/

Vans don't look much different from last year's. Wish they did another model, too.

Welp

Any NYC based dudes willing to proxy to Canada? Not gonna take any chances this time around even though I already have a pair from the last release

Shoot me a PM please if you're free and want to make a bit of cash smile.gif

*edit*

Got this sorted out. Cheers!

It's normal suede, not rough out. I'm gonna grab the white because I need a nice pair of white sneakers but I agree with Shoreman, a little bummed.

I would be super into a pair of mismatched chukkas

It would make for something a little different than most of the LE Vans releases (too many Old Skools and Eras/Authentics out there already) but still have a nice simple shape that complements the mismatched leathers

I did the same from The Mens Market sale and put together an Andover tropical wool suit.  A large in the Andover (I am always a large in the Bedford) however be very careful with the cinch pant.  Last season was my first with EG pants (I tend not to like full fitting wide pants) and the MATT pants were right up my alley.  I purchased two pair FW13 Matt's in size 34 - the measuring tape shows the waist to be 36 and they fit absolutely perfect for me (5'10", 165-170 in shape - but not a youngster).  This season I took a size M in the ripstop fatigue pant and a tape measure showed the waist to measure size 35.  

 

A size 34 arrived in the tropical wool Cinch pant and they were almost impossible to put on - in this case the waist measured exactly as the pant was marked - 34.  I could barely zip them up as by nature they appear to be a very slim pant - perhaps even slimmer than the MATT.  I now have a size 36 on its way to me and I anticipate the fit should be fine - I just hope the leg does not get too wide.

 

I have a size M in the off white Ecru Painter pant on its way to me from NEED Supply - they seem to be the only one who carried it domestically in that color (?).  I hope fit will be the same as the Ripstop Fatigue.

 

Good luck

do they fit the same as normal vans?

The last round fit .5 size big. My checkerboard slip ons are 10 and I def needed 9.5 in the EG vans.

Is it at all possible to wear the Cinch Pants higher up around your waist rather than your hips?

I am a TTS 32" and previous seasons Cinch Pants are exactly as marked (size 32 measures 32") and I find the pants are designed to sit higher. I wear casual pants and jeans lower towards the hips in most instances.

I have a pair of Painter Pants in Chambray in Medium which would if you perfectly as they are too large for me! Let me know if you're interested perhaps? biggrin.gif

If anyone is willing to proxy I would love you a lot. Just down in DC, not far to ship, but there's no way I'm making it up there in time. Send me a PM

post #1048 of 1353

Yes, I'll be grateful if anyone is willing to proxy. I'm in Asia & totally have no chance to grab a pair.

 

Any kind soul, please drops me a PM. Thanks. 

post #1049 of 1353

No need to proxy to LA - Might be one of the few that don't like them at all. But you guys have a go at them.

 

Mike

I'm 30 in all EG pants, FW13 Matt, USN, Fatigue, Cinch. This season it's 30 for me yet again. Only season I had to size up to a size 32 was in last summers shorts which ran very small.

I got the wool cinch pants already and i'm waiting for the Andover to arrive. At 5'9" and 153-163 i'm always a medium in the EG sport coats and most other outerwear. I've got thin legs and kind of an V shaped body. The tropical wool cinch pants fit is great but are a little tight when buttoned. If only the button or button hole were located 0,4-0,8 inch wider or if I would pull myself together and go out running a bit more often they would be 10/10. Other than that the fit is really really good, legs and leg opening are thin and not that wide, pretty much just as I like them. I also don't tend to like too wide legs or too wide leg openings. I would probably fit into size 32 as well but the overall look would not be as good seeing as these are mainly made to be used as a suit and shouldn't look baggy or sloppy.
I think you should be fine with the 36, probably no need to worry about the legs! They are a little tighter than the FW13 cinch pants.

Sure why not? As long as the waist allows it.. smile.gif
