    It's normal suede, not rough out. I'm gonna grab the white because I need a nice pair of white sneakers but I agree with Shoreman, a little bummed.

    I would be super into a pair of mismatched chukkas

    It would make for something a little different than most of the LE Vans releases (too many Old Skools and Eras/Authentics out there already) but still have a nice simple shape that complements the mismatched leathers

    I did the same from The Mens Market sale and put together an Andover tropical wool suit. A large in the Andover (I am always a large in the Bedford) however be very careful with the cinch pant. Last season was my first with EG pants (I tend not to like full fitting wide pants) and the MATT pants were right up my alley. I purchased two pair FW13 Matt's in size 34 - the measuring tape shows the waist to be 36 and they fit absolutely perfect for me (5'10", 165-170 in shape - but not a youngster). This season I took a size M in the ripstop fatigue pant and a tape measure showed the waist to measure size 35.

    A size 34 arrived in the tropical wool Cinch pant and they were almost impossible to put on - in this case the waist measured exactly as the pant was marked - 34. I could barely zip them up as by nature they appear to be a very slim pant - perhaps even slimmer than the MATT. I now have a size 36 on its way to me and I anticipate the fit should be fine - I just hope the leg does not get too wide.

    I have a size M in the off white Ecru Painter pant on its way to me from NEED Supply - they seem to be the only one who carried it domestically in that color (?). I hope fit will be the same as the Ripstop Fatigue.

    Good luck

    Is it at all possible to wear the Cinch Pants higher up around your waist rather than your hips?

    I am a TTS 32" and previous seasons Cinch Pants are exactly as marked (size 32 measures 32") and I find the pants are designed to sit higher. I wear casual pants and jeans lower towards the hips in most instances.

    I have a pair of Painter Pants in Chambray in Medium which would if you perfectly as they are too large for me! Let me know if you're interested perhaps? :D

    If anyone is willing to proxy I would love you a lot. Just down in DC, not far to ship, but there's no way I'm making it up there in time. Send me a PM

    Yes, I'll be grateful if anyone is willing to proxy. I'm in Asia & totally have no chance to grab a pair.

    Any kind soul, please drops me a PM. Thanks.

    No need to proxy to LA - Might be one of the few that don't like them at all. But you guys have a go at them.

    I'm 30 in all EG pants, FW13 Matt, USN, Fatigue, Cinch. This season it's 30 for me yet again. Only season I had to size up to a size 32 was in last summers shorts which ran very small.

    I got the wool cinch pants already and i'm waiting for the Andover to arrive. At 5'9" and 153-163 i'm always a medium in the EG sport coats and most other outerwear. I've got thin legs and kind of an V shaped body. The tropical wool cinch pants fit is great but are a little tight when buttoned. If only the button or button hole were located 0,4-0,8 inch wider or if I would pull myself together and go out running a bit more often they would be 10/10. Other than that the fit is really really good, legs and leg opening are thin and not that wide, pretty much just as I like them. I also don't tend to like too wide legs or too wide leg openings. I would probably fit into size 32 as well but the overall look would not be as good seeing as these are mainly made to be used as a suit and shouldn't look baggy or sloppy.
    I think you should be fine with the 36, probably no need to worry about the legs! They are a little tighter than the FW13 cinch pants.



    Sure why not? As long as the waist allows it.. :)

    Just thought I would point this out since there are so many requests for proxies on the EG x Vans:

    "Please note: customers are limited to one pair per color, all sales final."

    From
    http://nepenthesny.tumblr.com/

    Wouldn't want anyone getting a nasty surprise on release day and potentially miss out on a pair :)

    Was ready to buy a pair of the grey oxford USN pants after seeing your picture with them Shingles. Drinkwaters was sold out in my size, and jack straw was the place Nepenthes suggested i try. After Canstyleace posted about themensmarket sale i found them there for $120 (~$140 shipped). Fantastic pants for the summer. Wanted to say thanks! Wouldn't have known about them for one, and would have paid full price if it wasn't for this board.

    If anyone who isn't getting the white pair of Vans and lives in NYC wants to pick them up for me for a little extra $$ PM me.
