    Sorry to sound like a broken record, but any update on the Ravello Brixton? I think it's been almost a year since I paid and I want to rock these bad boys already. I know it's out of your control, but man..am I anxious!

    Are the Yuketen boots lined at all? Not sure what you meant in the description.

    Pebble grain is like a pornstar to me. It looks great when I see on screen but I can't imagine myself with it :embar:

    Got my first pair of 12oz. Rivet Chinos today. A fine looking chino, no doubt. Curious, should I expect any stretching? I know the site says "Shrinkage or exceptional stretching is not a concern," so does that mean I should expect normal/usual amount of stretching? They're a but snug right now, and I must say, some stretching would be much appreciated really. :)

    Thanks in advance for any thoughts!

    My opinion and experience is that if they're too snug for your liking, go up a size. You'll feel much more comfortable. Any stretching you get will be reversed whenever you wash them.

    Shrinkage was pretty minimal if any on my navy rivets.

    You will get a little bit of stretch (maybe a half size or so). I'm a 32 in the rivets, and they are a bit snug (not tight) after a wash. Stretch just a tad for a nice fit after wearing them for an hour or so. I was curious, so with my next order, I included a few 33's. They would have been too big for the fit I was looking for.

    In short - they are cotton, they will stretch a bit, but these aren't APC's or anything like that. Don't be sizing down.

    Ranger, you are never going to get a raise if you keep dressing so well to work. They must think you are a trust fund kid.

    lol, far from it. We aren't getting a raise regradless...don't you know we're all lazy slackers who couldn't hack it in "real" professions? Well, if you read the local papers anyway.

    On a side career note here, cool History Day Fair project today that should get Ep Approval:

    and tomorrow I should be getting one on Men's Fashions of the 20th Century...

    The Smiths are my favorite band ever. That is fantastic!

    I certainly approve of the Smiths. But it hurts a little to know that my teenage music is now an exhibit for history day.

    How Soon is Now. One of my favorite depressing songs.

    "There's a club if you'd like to go
    you could meet somebody who really loves you
    so you go, and you stand on your own
    and you leave on your own
    and you go home, and you cry
    and you want to die"

    Kid did quite well too, she really got them, and explained how they fit the theme of Revolution, Reaction and Reform.


    You and me both.

    Thanks much all. These are quite tight on the thighs, I think I'm going to have to send them back. Sad part being, they're size 36. ;) Guess I have to figure something else out. :)

    On another note, so weird to see so many (ex?) punks/goths here... High school me wouldn't recognize 38 year old me.

    You got 4 years on me, but you're damn right...we should post some HS pics and then some SF pics to show the world how Epaulet can transform just about anybody...
