    Can anyone comment on the strength of the stitching on the ripstop pants? I just recently got my first pair of rivet chinos, and I love them, but the crotch seam has already split on the third day of (light) wear. I'm pretty dissapointed with that. Do the ripstop pants have tougher stitching as well as tougher fabric?

    That seems odd, mine take a hell of a lot of abuse. I can't say Ive noticed a difference in my ripstops from the normal excellent construction. I'd send epaulet a PM.

    Got in from the pub last night and almost bought a load of things in the sale that weren't quite my size. Thankfully I fell asleep and it's all gone this morning. I was just wondering though, if thats the last of the 7oz French Blue Ducks we'll see as I was gonna order another pair but you haven't had my size for a while?

    How did you all find out about the sale? I thought I was on their email list, but only found out about it here this morning. Only one item in my size, drat!

    I missed that completely, how long ago was it posted?

    Can anyone tell me of their experience with moleskin pants? Thanks.

    Look back several pages. Mike posted it yesterday. Don't be too sad though. Not like there was full size run on anything. Epaulet sells out at retail prices usually.

    Given that you're from Atlanta, you might find them a little warm, even in winter. I'll only wear during my winter, and that's ten to twenty below zero, C or F, pick your scale. Having said that, from a tactile perspective, they're so damn sensuous!

    Finally got the image uploading to work again ... I assumed it was some problem with being behind the Great Firewall (as it didn't work with any browser on my old laptop), but on my new laptop it seems to work just fine.

    Not very seasonal now (pictures were taken earlier this year) - but inspired El Argentino's post (the color on those shoes is truly fantastic) here are the Alden x Epaulet Natural Chromexcel Brixton boots together with the FF coarse-grain Dijon mustard tweed trousers (aka chartreuse - but after a particularly bad experience at university with the alcohol of the same name I prefer not to think of them as that color ....).

    If I had a serious girlfriend, I would cop her the pythons without hesitation.
    Did you slim down the trousers? Combo looks great.

    Was thinking of doing the same for my Girl Buddy. But I was not sure of carmina women size, she wears a 6 U.S. Any help on this?

    It was the only logical choice to me :)

    Ive only worn mine 3-4 times and haven't done anything to them yet. Mike and others have made suggestions, but I don't recall at the moment.
