    Yes and no - we do a monthly restock, but I don't believe that we've got brushed graphite coming in. It's a thicker cloth, so we'll bring more of those out towards the end of the summer.

    But in the grey world, we'll have a solid grey ripstop which will be perfect for hot-ass days.

    I never really look at the Walts because when I guested started looking at EP I was told the Rivets were the slimmer pants. However, when I just looked at the measurements posted on the site it appears the Walts have the slimmer thigh and knee. Now I am very confused...could someone help clear this up for me.

    Mike thanks for the response in the denim questions. Sounds like the same size as my Rivets should work perfectly. One last question, is there any chance of getting a longer inseam option for taller dudes like me? And what will the standard inseam length be?

    They rivets are slimmer, in the top block. They're with a lower rise and fit like a casual chino, or a jean. They are by no means "skinny pants", but a conservatively slim chino. A lot of guys even taper the leg opening. The Walt has a higher rise and is a dress pant. Can they be worn casually, of course, but they are really an American made dress trouser in a modern cut...most American brands tend to cut huge, for, well, Americans. In my mind its one of the reasons slimmer guys have been forced to look to Europe for a decently cut pant...now we have EP, so its all good.

    Bottom line, they're two different animals.

    Rob's explanation is good. I've found recently that sizing down one in Walts is more comparable to your size in the Rivet.

    Going to try out Rudys on my next order and am going to go with one size from Rivet like I do with Walts and see how it works out.

    On an unrelated note....had a great customer experience with Dylan on today's order. The Epaulet crew are truly standup people time and time again.

    I've got a few recent fit pics:

    This is me in the Wyatt Moto jacket, size Large. It's shot with a Polaroid SLR680 and Impossible Project PX film. Not sure if that brown splotch on the top is from the film or the camera (I suspect the film), but I love the colors on these.

    And here I am wearing the forest green Luchino polo in size Medium (you've got to size down one on those), sitting in front of the enormous portions served at Brooklyn's Bamonte's Italian restaurant. I polished off that ravioli that night in record time. A few more meals like that and I'll be sizing up on polos before I know it.

    These don't really do them justice but here's a couple pics. Love these pants! I think they look similar to the new Nori actually.
    I was hoping to get some fit pics up as I know I want to get them taken in and would like a second opinion. These are 30s but 28s fit me better in Walts, if not a bit too tight.

    ^^ Thanks. They are the same as mine. They are more green than Taupe and I was thinking the same thing - Looks like the Nori. Wanted to make sure and was wondering if I got the Nori by mistake . I agree, great looking fabric ^^

    Sorry if it was posted already here - any plans for colourful summer Rivet Chinos like last summer ? Will they come in 7, 8, or 10 oz. canvas ? Just want to know how much money should I set aside :)

    What exactly is the difference between the steep twill and regimental twill trousers? I have two regimental twill trousers and am looking to pick up a pair in navy and am wondering how the steep twill differ.

    Also, I saw a few posts back that you would do Khaki Cotton MTO jacket for $650. Does this mean that all the other pant fabrics could potentially be turned into MTO jackets? The possibilities could be endless....

    I've been on a spending freeze lately (saving for a new road bike) but couldn't pass up the camo twill walts. Can't wait to see the jacket picture. Also pretty excited for the selvedge rivet. On second thought, maybe my current bike is just fine...

    My impression is, yes. At least for Walt fabrics.
