    This is great news. Really good pricepoint too, keeping it as sub-$200 denim.

    FWIW, on these jeans, as a Rudy wearer, I don't think a cut like that would be as necessary - it's just as easy to size up in the waist and wear them a bit lower, particularly given the immensely casual nature of jeans. FWIW, that's what I've done on all of my RCs (buy up to a 36 from the 34 for the sake of the thighs), and then wash them hot to shrink the waist down.

    Eh - IDK. Guess I'll need to wait for posted measurements to see how it'd work.

    I'm pretty sure that you could wear them, especially if you take a 34. Jeans are meant to break in and stretch - and they look better worn a bit tight, then a Rivet Chino or Walt. The cut on these isn't really slim by jean standards. I'd say that if you can wear a Levis 501, then these should probably work. But we'll have specific measurements on the launch.

    Can I iron the back of my LBM 1911? Just need to remove the wrinkles....

    (Hoping this isn't in the running for dumbest question of the year)

    Well, I held out for a couple weeks but finally couldn't resist that grey & burgundy windowpane flannel's siren call any longer.

    Oh, and I got my blue speckle FF rivets today and they're really great! I ordered a 35 since the 34 I usually get in the ducks is always a touch tight till they stretch and it fits perfectly!

    Not dumb at all. Yes, you can definitely iron the back of your LBM jacket - it's cotton. I'd use a low setting just to be safe. It's not particularly delicate, but you don't want to risk burning it.

    And, definitely consider joining the "Steam Team" sometime in the future. Getting a stand up steamer will change your life. I haven't used an ironing board in 10 years. We keep this in all three of our stores:

    Will do! And thanks for posting that link - I haven't seen that site in years! Those were the days.


    Thank you sir!

    Seems like a silly question but do you guys iron your duck canvas chinos? I want to wear mine both casually with a tee and slightly dressed up with a blazer and don't know if it's cool to iron them or not. Thanks.

    I iron them inside out on low heat and have never had any problems.

    I'm a recent convert to the steamer-only crowd on all of my washable stuff. all the trousers/dry clean only stuff get that treatment along with traditional dress shirts, while all of my chinos, cotton trousers, and ocbds get the steamer after a cold wash and hang dry. the steamer will do a great job on anything cotton so long as your not looking for a crease, and much quicker, at least for me. i'm done with the iron at home.

    i've got one question for the crowd to field, nightshade or the donegal navy? I know, its sacrilege given the nightshade fawning of recent history! usage will be some winter work apparel in a very casual business casual office, winter parties, etc.

    I dry clean all of my pants, including the duck chinos. I mainly do this to avoid fading.

    I think 1/2 the appeal of a duck canvas pant is its toughness & ease of care. A short spin in the dryer on the low & then hang dry & you basically have a ready to go pant for anything short of press-worthy events. (Pressing not reporters). But everyone has their own steeze.

    Got my MTO Rivets today! Moss w/ orange tape & blue pinstripe pocket bags. Realized that sizing up to 33 and then full dryer cycle to shrink them a bit yields a better fit for me then 32 w/ fear of any shrinkage.

    MTO is so rad. For barely more than a hem job--at least a decent one--it's pretty fresh to tweak the details a bit. Already pondering what's next...

    I wash rivets on 30 degrees, hang dry, then iron if I'm wearing them in a business casual fit with a sportscoat, otherwise no ironing for a casual fit.

    I actually like the fading. I'm particularly looking forward to the french blues getting faded.

    Awesome....will be joining the Steam Team this weekend. Sounds too good to be true!

    I wash and iron all my duck canvas pants....I try to stay clear of dry cleaning as much as possible....but I do have a wet cleaner nearby that I use on occasion for pants/sweaters that can't be washed.
