1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    ^ thanks for the Forest last suggestion, I'll have to try a boot in that at some point. I have the same issue with the Barrie - I go for narrow widths in a Barrie shoe but a boot usually fits better (although a C width boot is ideal). I've tried the Simpson as well, like you said it's very chiseled, too much so for my tastes.

    EDIT - congrats Ryden!

    Congrats rydenfan. This is the beginning of many sleepless nights.

    On the Carmina last topic, which last is relatively wider than the Rain last? I bought a pair of Carmina in Rain last from Epaulet. Size 7.5. The length is good but a bit wider would be better.

    My Inca DM is the MOST comfortable last from Carmina. Probably my favorite last as well.

    In my experience, the thighs are slightly smaller and the waist is substantially larger on the Wilshire when compared to the same size Rivet chino (duck canvas). I'm pretty sure the leg opening is larger too. I wear the same size in both, but the waist is not snug on the Wilshire by a long shot.

    ^ this is pretty much the case, but the leg opening is actually smaller for sure.

    In retrospect would you have sized down one? (Duck Rivet is a solid fit on me)

    Has anyone purchased the driving gloves? Curious how the sizing worked out for you, and with what you wear them.

    No, the jeans would be too tight on my thighs if I sized down one. If you have real skinny legs sizing down one might be good.

    Firstly, apologies for the close up crotch shot.[​IMG]

    A question regarding sizing of these Rivets. I'm concerned about the pulling in the fly area where the back layer is visible. Does this indicate that they are sized too small?

    They fit perfect all over except for the pulling. And really, the waist doesn't fell overly tight and i can wear them a bit higher. Would moving the button across a bit be a simple fix?

    You might have success letting the seat out a tad...
