    Mike,

    I have larger thighs so the Rudy trousers sound great. Is there any option of getting non-special order Rudy trousers? I am just afraid of ordering the wrong size and can not return.

    Is there extra fabric on the seat and thighs so it can be let out if needed?

    Thanks.

    Took my black slim walt regiment twill trouser to the dryclean to get pressed, and it's returned with a white crease in the front/back. Is this normal with cotton trousers? Maybe iron set to too high temperature? Is there a way to restore to its original color? Appreciate any help.
    BTW, this happened to the navy trouser also, I guess happens with all dark colors.

    This is my situation as well. It sounds as if we have very similar builds. I have been sending my Epaulet shirts through the dryer, which seems to shrink the collar to almost the right size. But now I wonder if MTO is the better way to go. The question is whether changing the collar size would alter the rest of the fit in a bad way. With the standard fit + dryer I feel that I can usually get a fairly good fit, at least for a casual shirt.

    I had one shirt at one time, and I tried drying it, but the collar didn't really shrink enough for my liking, so I'm super excited to try out an MTO.

    I'd be interested to hear Mike's comments on your question about altering the collar size, although if there was any chance that it would mess up the proportions of the rest of the shirt, they probably wouldn't have offered an option for it.

    The newest of the new trousers look INCREDIBLE. Stocking my shopping cart now, trying to decide. One question, though - did the Stone sanded uk canvas trousers sell out? Thought there was plenty of stock in those and hesitated. If so, I'll probably go for the khaki w/side tabs, but wanted to check to be sure.

    Thanks!

    I was unhappy when it happened to mine as well - navy and grey twill. I decided I'd either step up and buy wool trousers to wear to work, or buy some other cheaper brand of cotton trousers when I wanted casual ones.

    Do the new navy hopsack pants match the navy hopsack blazer?

    Yes. I believe this is just a restock.

    Can chinos be done with side tabs?

    Seems like an awkward mix up to me since chinos are casual and the side tabs have a formal appeal. Personally I don't think it'd look flattering given how low the chinos sit.

    I believe this is the first time EP has carried the navy hopsack trousers. I have them, but had to special order.

    Curious to hear from Mike or Matt how you view the difference between the LBM fit and the Napoli? Comparing Navy Duck w/ the new navy LBM...

    I tried on both when I bought the LBM...Napoli in Navy Duck is longer in the body and overall a touch more structured. The LBM is light as a feather and the cotton is washed so its uber soft. The Navy duck I assume breaks in after wear.

    Damn, the new gear looks GREAT! Hopefully I'll be grabbing the POW Plaid and Ticking Stripe, they're boss. Scarves look awesome as well and damn, more LBM.

    Hmmm... very tempted by the ticking strip myself. Description says "robust." I wonder what weight the fabric is. Maybe you can report on this if you have a chance (or already have had a chance) to see them NYI.

    I'll post tomorrow after I check em out. They remind me of these old RRL Railroad Stripe jeans I had in college.
