    Do you have any other pics with the burgundy? From that direction/sub angle the color looks very 70's/ Napoleon dynamite-esque (just worried because I wanted to order this one also)

    I know loose threads are common, but is it common to see loose threads like this for a newly delivered pair of walt 120s?

    I'm not sure if cutting the threads will loosen the stitching on the inside.

    I'm more or less done with Alden shoes, but I will need those sooner or later!

    Have you met your goal or is it due to other reasons?

    RE: Aldens? Aside from #4, I already have all the shells. There's no models that really interest me. I would rather use the money for more interesting make ups like the ones in the Carmina thread or some MTO Tricker's or something to that extent.

    Thanks.

    Are you guys changing up your chino line? Seems like a few are gone, I was really keen on a white pair :(

    The LHS should be around for a while. No hurry on that model. I do really like it in all those EP pics though.

    And good looking ducks.

    I've checked on this - look like in a couple weeks they will get a small restock, then that's it for the fabric as I understand it. I missed out on the first release, an will be sure to be much faster on the trigger next time.

    Ah, sorry about that. These things do happen on occasion. Clipping the thread shouldn't hurt the integrity of the pant at all.

    Solid look, homie.

    I sent an email to Epaulet, but I wanted to check here as well to see if anyone else had a similar request at some point - I think I need some trousers with an inseam longer than an unfinished 38", more like 40". For some reason my tailor says she needs more length in my pants to give me a full 2" cuff. I don't need an insanely long inseam or anything like that (most of my pants are around 33.5" or 34"), but she insists that she needs three times the size of the cuff in extra fabric in order to do it properly. By thise calculations, I need 6" of additional inseam length to get a 2" cuff.

    Has anybody been able to get a longer inseam on their factory finds or special order trousers? I'm hoping I can get this request added to my most recent factory finds order.

    As I do my own trouser hemming, you don't need 3x the length of fabric. I do the same inseam, so let's use 34 as an example. For a 2" cuff, you want 34" + 2" (inside of cuff) + 2" (outside/visible fabric of cuff) + 1" or less to finish the hem. Total of 39" or less max. I think that Brooks Brothers trousers ship with a 39" inseam (unfinished) and that's enough to do a 2" cuff with a 34" inseam. In fact my left leg is approx 1/4" to 3/8" longer (or I have a high hip), so I do a little longer inseam on that leg and I can easily do a 2" cuff.

    ^ thanks for the info, I also seem to have the same problem with one leg needing to be hemmed slightly longer than the other. So even if I don't need 3x the amount, it's still pretty close to that - about 2.5x. I guess in that case 38" still might not be quite long enough, I may need at least an extra half inch or so.

    I was pretty upset when I went to pick up my pairs of pants from the tailor and saw these puny 1.25" cuffs on them. I'm 6'4", so that made them look even smaller compared to my long legs. I left them with her and told her to make them as big as she possibly can at this point, which may only be 1.75" max. That would at least be wearable, but still not quite ideal for me. I'm hoping with my future orders I can ask for a longer inseam than the standard 38" unfinished.
