    Returning these RL wool officer chinos because they were too big in 34, and they don't come in a 33 like the cotton chinos. Sniffle. Great fabric, too bad. The 32's were too small too. Stuck in between two vanity sizes

    I've been on the hunt for a nice, super light windbreaker - preferably a LP type StormSystem wool - and just stumbled across this. All wool, water resistant, and the hood zips off - should be versatile. Corneliani ID can be a bit wacky for classic pieces, but I've found their contemporary/active stuff to be nice; we'll see.

    As a fellow 33w I also hate trousers that are only even sizes, and of course vanity sizing makes it worse. You couldn't reasonably take a 34 down to a 33 though? I get 1" out on plenty of trousers in similar situations with good-to-excellent results. Heck, a lot of times I get 34s specifically for a little wider leg and then trim the waist/seat a little.

    For average stuff i wouldn't bother, but if you love the fabric...

    My first Kamakura shirt is on its way. I had to go to NY Classic for my ginormous neck size.

    Also nabbed another pair of Carminas from Gentlemens Footwear

    Easy; it's a small shop. They only stock 1 brand - Carmina, and only like 12 models, all on one page.

    Now that this is out, I suspect their on-sale Carmina's are going to be gone in 3... 2... 1...

    RLs or Fullcounts? I don't have either yet, but I'd guess the RL's are around 13.25 on a size 34. And the Fullcounts are defintiely 13 inches

    The blue ones are Fullcounts? So, 13 in a 34? Dammit. I need some raw denim. Someone recommended me the Levi's 501's shrink to fit, but we don't have those here. We have the regular ones and I can't pass them thru my thighs. :(

    Yes. Blueingreen.com has measurements for all their jeans. I think they ship to Mexico. :slayer:
