    Bordeaux would have been more my speed, but the Aubergine is a very nice shade and I can see why it would get compliments.

    My main goal will be getting all the Duck Canvas that are available (hoping the navy gets a restock soon), got a birthday coming up next month so I better start dropping some hints to my wife haha.

    I'll be heading to NYC just before my birthday in early August. Sorry for scooping up all the 33's!

    Oh boy, I waited too long this summer to pickup the navy Seersucker and/or grey Irish linen walts. I just saw them in the sale section. There's still a 31 in the seersucker, but wondering how'd they'd fit. I special order a 29 but also wear a 30 in Walts. I'm a dead on 30 in Rivets. You think I'd be alright altering a 31"? I could have a matching bottom to my Caine sportcoat!

    Matt, are the Wilshire's slim enough in the leg for you? I'm still on the fence, afraid they'll be a tad too loose in the knee.

    I went on a cruise with my folks last week. Never again. That said, here are some fits.

    The noragi is my favorite piece ATM. For those on the fence it's easy to wear, you just take it off the hanger, put it on your body and profit. But seriously it's a great light layer that goes well over simple tees with most pants. You'll dig the robe vibe.

    Wondering if this sizing conversion is generalizable. I fit well in 31 rivets. Would walts and/or driggs fit me best in a 30?

    These are perfect Ryden. Just how I would wear them with denim man. My size is still out there.


    Decided to grab last Purple Paisley Wool PS from sale section. It will go on Olive/Gold Windowpane FF SC.

    The waist isn't even the biggest difference for me, it's the crotch area. The Rivet is a little uncomfortable in a 29, but it's roomy enough in a 30, and the waist is spot on with a 30. The Walt cut fits me fine there in a 29 but the waist is spot on usually as well, although I have a few 30 walts that fit well enough that i've never bothered altering. I've always thought the 29 Walt waist fits better because the rise is higher than the Rivets and I'm probably a little thinner just above the waist.

    Grab them! They are awesome!

    Thanks for all the kinds words guys, the VAss makeups are so great and the quality and construction is top notch.

    Looks nice, sir. I'm not qualified to comment on the shoulder question but I was wondering how tall you are. I have been going 37XS on my last few jackets and I'm 5'4".

    It's hard to judge the color online. What is it like in person? What color shirts to you pair with? Thanks!

    Thanks Todd V! I'm about 5'5" to 5'6". I think length is hard for shorter guys. On the one hand I think I'll look taller and more proportioned with a shorter than average jacket, but whenever I've tried them … BB Milano, BF, J.Crew … I think it looks kinda silly and boyish. I think they have a tendency to exaggerate my short, skinny frame. Skinny lapels look weird on me as well. I have small shoulders, but a 2.5-3+ inch lapel looks better IMO. What I really like about the EP Southwick cut is that it's not exaggerated or trendy in anyway … just a good tailored look … not too Italian and not too ivy. EP is just right :)

    I think it looks about right on you. You must have much longer arms than I.

    In my experience, a Southwick 37XS runs 27" in length so you are probably best with the Short (I assume your's measure about 28.25 or 28.5"?).
