    Mike, do guys carry a deer bone? I know you have the other Saphir products but I don't see a dear bone online.

    Looking forward to the FF release! Can anyone post or direct me to pics of an EP Southwick double-breasted with patch side pockets? Not sure I'm going that direction, but it sounds fun. :)

    SHARP, juevon!

    Can you post pics of the monks in sunlight without filter? I can't get a feel for how dark the oxblood is from VASS.

    You bet - these were from when they first arrived, taken with an actual camera rather than the Iphone:

    Thanks, both. I'm not entirely MC yet, but I've got some workable suits that serve well. As well as a one button, peak lapel, pinstripe navy can.

    I'm close to your size, and so is Mike (owner of EP). You need Rudy. Sorry. Or you need to get Walt and heavily modify. At that point, you needed Rudy to begin with. And I'm coming to the realization that a really tapered look doesn't look good on people our size. Go for leg openings that are minimum 8, but preferably 8.25 - 8.5"

    I've had to send a few pieces back to retailers before I got a feel for their different cuts. It's quite a learning experience.

    The rivet cut on me was pretty decent. Is Rudy close to that or Walt?

    TBH, while the site says it's closer to the Walt, I'd say it's closer to in-between/leaning Rudy. The leg opening is better proportioned and the thighs are much larger. The RC is a better suited casual pant to Rudy wearers, similar to how the Driggs is more adequate for those in Walts.

    I take tagged 36 rivets for the thighs and take the waist in to about a 34. I get tagged 35 Rudys and still bring the waist in a bit. Curse of teh squatz.

    I just came back from Paris. A shitload of people wore Stan Smiths (I have a pair) and All-Stars (I must have seen 500 sets of feet rocking optic white). I had the black tennis sneakers from EP and they are insanely comfortable, well-made and stylish as hell. I'm copping the Snuffs as well, and do not regret it. If I had it in the budget, I'd get the white to replace the shitty Kent Wang and Stan Smiths I have for a clean white sneak, but I just can't do it. Eventually....

    Was hoping I could try the sneakers on in person when I visit in a couple of weeks. No dice.. all of my big footed brethren have bought up the 12's.. :censored:

    6' 205 47'' chest and 35'' waist @ navel and my bum and thighs fit fine into size 36 Walts. Waist gets nipped a tiny bit. I feel like any larger thighs/legs on pants would look disproportionate tbh. Then again I have wide hip bones.

    Powerlifting fist bump. 1594 total @ 218 USAPL... in college :(

    I was talking with Matt about that and he told me to let the seat out on my Walts and it would get rid of the "pocket flair" I was having. I wish there had been a Rudy fit for me to try while I was there but alas' those are just MTO. Right now they fit but you definitely know my religion!



    Man I'm new to the game but I wanted to get a little more strength and size for BJJ especially as I'm getting older and it's so much easier to get hurt on the mat these days. I started training with Richard Hawthorne and he's a great coach. Here's an Animal vid of him pulling 610 for 4 reps at a bodyweight of 131lbs. Dude's a freak!
