    I've been looking into sizing the Walts and Rivets myself and your comment is interesting. Indeed by looking at the sizing I would have guessed the Walt was more fitted than the Rivet. I'm generally a size 30 and have about a 22" thigh. Most of my jeans have a 11.5" thigh and fit fine, but I'm feeling I might want a little more than that for a dress pant. (My current dress pants are 12.25-12.5 which is just too baggy). Does the higher rise of the Walt make it more accommodating in the thigh area?

    Size 30 Rivet Walt
    Waist 30.5 31
    Rise 10.25 12.5
    Thigh 11.75 11.5
    Knee 8.25 X
    Leg 7.5 7.75

    My first impression was, "OOOOOOOOHHH. Epaulet it putting themselves behind a new pair of denim!!!"

    Then I saw the price.

    The cut does look fairly appealing - a very middle of the ground straight cut with the slightest bit of taper. And while I don't know a ton about Indigo Farm's craftsmanship or quality level, you can still get BNIB Momotaros for <$300. I don't like to arbitrarily throw a pricepoint out there, but I own Momotaros and conversely wouldn't consider anything at $300+. I did also originally gravitate towards the forum seeking out denim information, and have generally affiliated myself w/ that crowd (I'm an Epaulet convert!)

    I don't know. My gut tells me "too expensive." :confused:

    It looks like, once again, you guys are too fast for us! Quite the week of new product:

    This thing is seriously boss. Feels great, but holds it's shape well for an unstructured jacket.

    And these are some of my favorite denim I've ever seen. Ethan and crew really outdid themselves:

    This is a total shot in the dark, because we're still waaay ahead of when yall said they even might start popping up as available: but do yall have any better idea when the first round of factory finds jackets will be ready? I'll be on my honeymoon in a month, and the one I ordered will be absolutely perfect for my nappa trip. Many thanks, yall.

    Given the general lack of 2nd person plural options, it's really very handy (not to mention regionally favored).

    I'm particularly fond of it's versatility in cursing situations, eg. "Fuck all y'all."

    Higher-end denim I prefer to try on in person, and I'll definitely be throwing a pair on when I visit next, pending my size is still in stock.
