    I got a pair of Walt Olive Sanded Canvas a while back and finally got them hemmed. I have been thinking about what to wear it with. This is probably my first pair with some light green tone to it. Any suggestions?? A white OCBD and navy blue sport coat?

    ^ Agreed. I have these pants and find them as wearable as any khaki color. They're superb with blues, whites an pinks.

    Rudy pre-order trousers got delivered today - navy Irish linen and grey hopsack. Can't wait to get home and try them on! This is my first try with going up a size from 33 to 34. I'll definitely need the waist taken in, but the thigh and seat should hopefully fit perfectly now. I'll have to make sure I can get out to the tailor for alterations this weekend.

    This is number one on my wishlist for cold weather. Can you go into any details on the tweaks or timing?

    Jacket models/styles. Check out their site and you'll see the various lines under "sportcoats."

    no it's certified pre-owned. it's like buying a blazer off styleforum B&S except these have undergone a 100-point inspection by epaulet and come with an extended warranty

    Fit on these is SPOT ON, once I get the waist taken in and the pants hemmed. I think I'll be ordering a 34 Rudy from now on. Speaking of...are there going to be any more Rudy pre-orders anytime soon, or should I just email and grab something now? I'm specifically looking at the dove grey hopsack...the standard grey hopsack I just got today is fantastic, and I'd definitely be interested in more hopsack fabrics in the future.

    Hopsack is a great fabric. And glad to hear you got the fit dialed in. Congratulations!

    do you plan to add any lighter color wool pants? (a light light grey, or a light cream/tan)

    and any way to list the weight of the pant fabrics? just for reference

    Lighter colours would be good. As for the dove grey hopsack, I have now ordered a second pair, just to be sure that I always have them available. They are potentially a OneTrouser.

    Thanks! I had gotten the thighs let out a bit on some of my older size 33s, but 34 is the way to go for me now.

    Just thought of another question - any new updates on the selvedge denim Smith jean? I think from the original timeline those should be dropping soon. And are those able to be altered at all? Like if I sized up to get the thighs to fit, could the waist be tailored? I don't know much about denim, so that may be a really dumb question, but my usual problem with most jeans is the same problem I have with everything else - if I buy them to fit my waist, they're usually too slim for my thighs, and if I size up to fit my thighs, they're too big for my waist.

    Hey Mike/Adele,
    My girlfriend took the epaulet skirt to the dry cleaner, and they de-pleated it. Any advice on what she can do to restore them? She's pretty upset. Thanks.
