They have a nice gentle taper in the calves which is great, I hate the bell bottom look.

 

 Quality is outstanding.

Thanks, are hey going to strecth? the epaulet site says they dont?

Bros,

I tried on the JCrew urban slim in a 28W and everything fits perfect except for the thighs (a bit tight). Should I size up to a 29 and hope for the pants to shrink a bit, and just have them tailored afterwards?

Or should I just continue my search for the perfect chino?

They don't shrink. They stretch.

I'm talking about the J.Crew Urban Slim khakis.

The Epaulet Rivet Chinos will shrink length wise about half an inch and that's it. They don't really stretch at all and are the best fitting chinos I own and are worth every penny.

Dry cycles are never nice.

Please elaborate?

 

I just got a pair in the mail and I'm thinking of putting them in the wash before taking them to the tailor. Should I hang dry my pair?

If you're talking Rivet Chinos, definitely wash them before tailoring. I made the mistake of not reading and hemming before washing. It shrunk about an inch for me. At least they'll make nice shorts.

I hang dry anything that I care about. Drying once is OK if you really need shrinkage, but repeated drying isn't great for your clothes.
