    I have both, and I think you should get both. The orange is a bit unusual, but still very wearable. The russet is a colour you could just wear all the time if you wanted to. OK, if you had to pick one, I agree that you might want to go with the russet. But don't fear the orange.

    The Russet is definitely more versatile (technically), but be bold and go sandy orange! Ha, with full disclosure, I'm an orange guy so of course I'll say orange. I do have the sandy orange though, and I'll post a pic of them next time I wear them.

    I had to chose between the orange and the russet, and I agree, the Russet is more versatile, but the Orange is what I went with. I have so many brown pants, but an orange pant is so unique and I feel could be one of those "unicorn" items and once its gone, people will be like, "Why didn't I grab this!?"

    Speaking of which...I scored a

    I finally went to purchase the Walt mocha flannels and they are gone. Dang, that was fast. Any restock or any 32s laying around the shop? If not, any restock or special order for these?

    I know this has been discussed ad nauseam in this thread, but thinking of doing MTO rivets. I've never worn rivets--only walts and rudys. I wear a 34 in those--but, thigh is borderline too tight (In fact, I've had several of my 34 walts let out in the thigh and I think going forward I'm definitely a Rudy guy).

    I was thinking of doing Rivet's in a 35. I hesitate to go two full sizes up to the 36 (even though I can have the waist taken in). Has anyone gone with a 35 in the rivet MTO? It seems the standard advice from most folks is going one size up from your walt size with rivets.

    It's so hard to say given everyone's different shape and size. I take the same size in Walt and Rivet and get the waist nipped. Rivets are slimmer in the leg.

    I would suggest purchasing two pairs (non-MTO) to get your size nailed and then return and place your MTO order.

    I think that's what I'm worried about. I do want a bit more room in the leg on the pair I order.

    This is good advice. Buy a 34 and 36 before you get a 35 MTO Rivet. I'm a 34 Rudy and I go all the way up to 36 Rivet and get the waist taken in. And depending on the fabric a 36 Rivet is still too tight in the thighs for me, like the oxford cloths than ran about a year and a half ago. I went with a 36 and still ended up selling them after a while because I was never quite happy with the snugness in the thighs/seat.

    Also keep in mind that you can't let out the thighs in the Rivets like you can in Walt/Rudy. There's a tiny bit of fabric allowance, but not enough to really make a difference in fit.

    Here's my entry for the contest.

    New cardigan, and old duck chinos.

    The cardigan has a cool pattern on the body that I attempted to capture in the 2n picture.

    Lol. I'm harmless with a point and shoot.

    Chris, on the hand, is probably renting studio equipment! :embar::foo::slayer:
