    Thanks, not in SF but in WA.
    The special order have no sizing chart and they have 2 different sizing charts on the site, this was throwing me off..... not enough coffee yet.

    36 sounds correct, now just need to decide on the grey or sienna.
    Currently don't have any brown trousers so, probably the sienna.

    Has anyone else tried these?
    I think I'm going to order some today.

    That's part of the EP Brooklyn store. Wish it were my closet!

    Doing a special order for your first Walt would delay gratification significantly. Look into one of the tweed or flannel options on the website in your size if you want something sooner and that's not final sale. Sounds like you're likely a 36 as rydenfan said. Look in the product description for which tweeds are shetlands -- those are especially warm.

    Sorry but I'm new to paying over $50 for pants, I've read several post of this thread, I found no where on there site where it says what chinos are. I did not realize it was just another type of pants I've not heard of, thought maybe it was like jeans or something.

    I did find this which I'm assuming is correct.
    The way I see it, chinos and chino-style pants can be set apart by the narrow cut of their legs and the way the bottoms are tapered. They're usually crafted from a blend of cotton and stretchy synthetic fiber, which provides a great fit and a modern feel.

    Chinos should be worn with dressier T-shirts and button-down shirts, tucked in or out. They're perfect for any casual or slightly more formal occasion like a restaurant date or a night on the town with the boys. They're considered a tad dressier than khakis or jeans, but remember that they are not formal in any way. Again, make sure you match them properly with the rest of your ensemble.

    By SF I was referring to Style Forum (not San Francisco). You can order a 36 and return them within 14 days if they do not work for you

    I recall reading somewhere that the term "chinos" is what the English (and maybe Europeans) call what Americans typically call "khakis". I use the term interchangeably although I prefer chinos because with khakis, I'm never sure if one means that they're the color khaki as well or another color.

    From what I was Googleing this morning, khakis and chinos are used interchangeably in the US a lot, but both are a different type of trouser.

    Nice trousers are new to me, only since I've joined this site in the past couple days have I even heard of chinos.
    I grew up doing construction, prior to my current job, I had 1 pair of khakis and a white button down shirt for dressy occasions :)

    @SeanMarcellus I think you are going to like the trousers from Epaulet. They are definitely different from a $50 version, particularly when you are talking about the wool they run.

    Here's a snapshot of the Carmina caramel calf Alt Wiens, in the snow. Almost like being in Old Vienna itself. (Is that Harry Lime skulking in the background there...)

    NIce..... looking forward to getting my hands on a pair.
    Currently I wear Alfani Red (bad word on here?) I get off ebay for 20$ because I like the slim fit ($135 retail). When you hold them up you can see through them.

    I've got the money and I hate to be cold, so I'm determined this winter to get some warm pants.
    I just started to lean about style a few years ago, I feel like I missed something growing up, and this endeavor to find warm dress pants has opened a new world to me.

    Welcome! This is a great place to learn because A) the frequent post-makers are very well versed in men's clothing and B) it is one of the friendliest threads on StyleForum.

    What you have learned so far is quite impressive and everyone's advice should help as well. My first pair of real trousers were from Epaulet four years ago and I still wear them regularly. The other thing that you will discover as you get more into men's clothing is that Epaulet's prices are actually a STEAL. Products of similar quality to basic wool Walts (around $225) routinely retail for $350+ elsewhere.

    There is a reason why the word "addiction" gets thrown around this thread so often...

    How warm are the tweed walts? I'm afraid I'll get too hot at work, but they would be awesome for my commute.
