    Yeah I agree with Rob...I think the cuff on the linen trou will add a little bit of heft to an otherwise lightweight pant, which will help keep them "grounded", for lack of a better word. The only reason I didn't get cuffs on my last pair of linens from Epaulet (first round of factory finds) is because I didn't request the 38" unfinished inseam. I'll get cuffs on my next linen pair.

    Finally got my Duck Canvas Caramel's hemmed and the waist taken out just a bit! Ordered the 34" and had the waist taken out an inch to be more comfortable tucking shirts in. Did a warm soak to get the shrink out of the inseam, didn't shrink much and took 6" off (I'm 5'10" but have really short legs). Right at 29.5" inseam. Almost considered tapering a bit, but would have only wanted them tapered a half in at absolute most, so didn't think it was worth it.

    Very excited to start wearing them. Look, ma! No jeans! Up next, navy rivets!

    RE: adding heft..Assuming the trousers will actually touch the shoes! Haha. We'll see :) May go with it this time around since my two others have no cuffs.

    Blackwatch today:

    Are these the Carmina Salinger Double Monks in Burgundy? I only ask because I see the double stitching around the straps and the Carminas on Epaulet don't show that.

    Regardless, great shoes. I have the Caramel ones coming to me and this may have convinced me to get the Burgundy ones as well.

    Thanks!


    Love this. Details on the tie?


    Thank you:)


    That is fantastic. Although I miss the Jesus beard I think:)


    I love the Blaze Walts.


    I've been going back and forth on ordering the blackwatch since I didn't know what I would wear with them. I like this a lot.

    Looks good without any added taper, IMO. I think Rivets have a very classic chino cut the way you are wearing them.

    Hi guys, sorry to repost this question but was wondering what is the recommended way to clean the rivet canvas chinos? Cold wash, drip dry? Or should I take them to the cleaners? Will they shrink up if I wash? Thanks!

    I bought the caramel calfskin to match up with my ravello shoes. As it turns out the belt is a couple shades lighter than both my ravello shoes and boots yet a couple shades darker than my whiskey PTB's.

    Just received my first four epaulet shirts (dark indigo chambray, navy twill gingham, navy micro stripe, and pinpoint oxford). They are outstanding. They may be the first shirts that I won't have to have my tailor take in. I opened the shipping box, tried these on, and they were instantly my favorite shirts. I'd take these any day over BBBF and Ledbury.

    Only two minor quibbles... I wish the size M had a 15.5 collar. Size 16 is workable but a touch big for me (I wouldn't want to wear a tie with it), and the size small would be too small in all other measurements. I also wish they were about 1 inch longer. I didn't really notice it on the dress shirts with the cutaway collar, but the shirts with the tall button down collar seemed a little unbalanced to wear untucked.

    Should I expect length shrinkage when washed cold/cold and line dried?

    Overall, these are great shirts. I'm looking forward to getting a few more.

    Keep up the great work!

    NYR you might've missed your calling as a world-renowned purveyor of bland Latino rap/pop (and even blander beer), but you've gained an amazing wardrobe. Congrats to you and all the other entries, it's been fun reading these as they've come in
