    The grey Lazio polo is a steal.

    Oh, how I burn for the Havana and Juniper linen Walts. Blast these thighs and butt of mine.

    Even went through and re-measured every pair of slacks I own, hoping one would be close to a Walt measurement, but to no avail. :brick: What to do with a 34 waist and needing a 13.5 thigh? (Answer is Rudy, of course, but geez...)

    Kopping is really off the hook. Grey canvas jean and navy-black flannel sold right out of my cart.

    Tempted to grab that leather moto but thinking the small might be a little too short on my 5'10'' frame.

    Any pictures of Carmina Alt Wien in action? Searching the thread isn't pulling up much. I'm wondering how "stout" the profile is in real life. Thanks.

    Not sure if this shows the profile enough since it is more nose on, but here's a photo from the other day:

    And this is the Forest last sort of from the side:

    The shape is extremely elegant IMO.

    I'm sure it's dead on for you. I'm also 5'10" and I take a small in everything Epaulet makes.

    OK, now it is really time to load up on summer trousers. The pale blue ticking stripe walts are down to $55.

    Man, I really want to jump on one of the flannels but I've never actually sized myself for an epaulet shirt. Wj4, you say a small fits your 5'10" frame, but how big are you in the chest, and in the waist, and and around the armholes? I'm 5'10" but a slender fellow even by those standards, so I often get screwed in one or more of these categories.

    For reference the absolute perfect fit for me is Kamakura's Tokyo Slim 15-33 1/2 (If only they had a wider selection!). A Taylor Stitch 36 fits but its sleeves are a hair short, and the body is also short. Brooksbrothers ESF in small is also ok, but is more generous in the waist than is optimal. Do you think I should jump for a small or wait for the MTO program to start back up?

    I'm 160 lbs. 37" chest. True waist around my belly is 32". Not sure about other specs.

    Wish epaulet shirts fit me....

    6'1 180 and i would need a XL for the chest but the sleeves and neck are huge so it looks weird on me.

    I'll stick to walts and rivets for now.

    Jacket is bespoke and from fabric that was sponged in 1927...so possibly even older than that!

    Yeah, as I feared you're a bit bigger than I am on each measurement. I'd probably be better buying a small I can return to size myself. Thanks.

    Oh man, I've had enough of this. Here's hoping that the Napoli fits per Matt's advice.

    ^ that's quite a haul. You definitely need to wear the caramel rivets and duck canvas jacket as a full suit and post pics here

    I find the caramel Napoli and caramel duck rivets work much better as separates :)

    But both are awesome pieces!
