    I like the steel and brown linen fabrics but I'm hesitant to pull trigger because of the side-tabs... I feel like they automatically make the trousers look really formal -- even though linen is not particularly so. How are people wearing them? Are they really noticeable?

    It will be green, charcoal, and navy - we're going to retire aubergene for the Fall season. Probably bring that back in the Spring through - it's a really boss color.


    It really depends on your taste. I'd say that many guys think that the side tabs make them less formal, as you're then wearing the trousers without a belt. You definitely see them, but they're a cool old-school detail that people usually compliment you for. It just matters if you like them.

    Armoury Jeans Fit Shots

    Dylan picked up a pair of the Armoury Jeans when they first arrived, and he's put some pretty good wear on them. After a trip to Vienna's insane Prater Amusement Park (and quite a few beers), I scored some atypical fit shots of him in the jeans.

    And yes, that is a huge moving hamster wheel for humans. With a coy nude portrait of a woman. It's a great way to break your neck. That's how they do it in Vienna. It dumped me right on my ass.

    Denim looks pretty nice and I like that Matt has gone in coat and tie.

    And is this the amusement park shown in The Third Man by any chance? I guess I could google that, but that's a conversation killer.

    Edit: Damn, couldn't help myself. Went right to google. But what I did learn is that I may need to change my avatar and SF moniker. The Ferris wheel in the Prater seems to have been built by one Lt. Walter Bassett Bassett, RN. See below.

    That's one heck of a name.

    Can Epaulet name some Carmina's the Bassett Bassetts? How about it?

    It sure is! He rides on the "Riesenrad" ferris wheel. It's still there and going strong:

    I shot a photo as we were leaving the park. It's beautiful.

    Edit: ^ FrankCowperwood: Agreed, that picture is unstoppable. Name is unreal. We'll definitely name something the Bassett, although the Bassett Bassett might be pushing it. I've got two Ludwig Reiter shoes to name, and he definitely looks like a single monk kind of guy.

    The fit pic of Dylan in the Amoury denim look way more stylish then on the site. Look like a really good slim straight cut. Hhhmmm...

    you guys have way too much fun for this to be called work. I'm ready to sign up as manager of the LA store. Also, I'm still kind of mad at Dylan for taking the last pair of the black Chelsea boots in my size. They look awesome. I'm tempted to try to squeeze into 11s.

    Well, I can buy the single monks and call the left one Bassett and the right one Bassett, then I'll have Bassett Bassett.

    The Third Man is a fantastic movie. It has substance and visual panache, along with that killer zither on the soundtrack.


    QFT, photo of the Riesenrad is beautiful. And I like this bold combination, wj4.


    This.

    So I need some help picking out my next trouser purchases...the summer heat here in Tampa is just starting to become brutal, so I'm looking for some non-wool options. I have a few linen pairs, but I'm really looking for some cotton this time around. There's regiment twill, steep twill, and sanded UK canvas, and I know I've read a ton about them but I'm still a little unsure of the pros/cons of each.

    I'm really just looking for a few staple pairs I can wear to work - mostly business casual environment (sometimes professional depending on the day), and mostly in an A/C office. There is some light travel and I am outside for short periods here and there, so I definitely don't want anything too thick an heavy. Thanks gents!

    I'd recommend the Duck Canvas Walt's - fits your criteria!

    The steep twill is a heavy fabric. I don't think that will fit the bill. The regiment twill is not too heavy, but I think it will be too hot for Florida summers. Sanded UK canvas seems like the best choice of the three.

    How well do those hold a crease? I have some Rivets in Duck canvas and I love that fabric for casual wear. I'd like to try and get the "dressiest" cotton option if I can.

    I have handled all three fabrics. Frank's is the best advice for your purposes. The sanded UK is the dressiest option.

    I was actually curious about this. Are the Walt version of the ducks as good for summer as the Rivets? Lining doesn't affect it?
