    YES to the Driggs. I'd be very interested in that fit.

    To echo others, a lower rise just doesn't work for me. The Walt's 12.5" is perfect and a 7.5" leg opening would be a welcome change

    Anything on the Secret Santa idea? Its getting late to get something like this off the ground, but I love this kind of stuff...we can arrange it like the SF Secret Santa (which I missed out on this year) but think it can be cool.

    Think the gift should be something local as I love how this thread brings the world together right here, and a little slice of home would be something cool to send (and receive). What did we say we would price this at? Set a minimum maybe and a max?

    Think this can work?

    Some really good contest entries. Awesome pictures and fits guys!! I'm doing to try to get my three in soon.

    Mike, I like the idea of an in between pant with a slimmer leg and Rivet rise. I typically go with a lower rise given my build. Having said that, if others like a slightly higher rise, then I would be good with that as well. Love the idea.

    Jumping on the bandwagon.
    Even the rivet rise is problematically low for me.
    My ideal pant would have the rise of the walt, generally casual details of the rivet, and more taper below the knee than the rivet.
    I would eat that up in anything except worsted wool.

    Mike I think the Driggs is a fantastic idea. I'd be down for 4-6 pair in staple colors right off the bat.

    I'm in the higher rise camp for the driggs. I can't tuck a shirt with the lower rivet-style rise.

    It's nice for Epaulet to offer this option for its customers. I might be one of the only few who not only prefers the rise on the Walts, but the leg opening too. If you could bring back the Regimental Twill fabric, then I would be set :p

    Also, I'm in for Secret Santa and agree that it would be wise to start this soon!

    Not the best pic, and not a contest submission because the pants aren't from this season. I think someone asked a while ago for more pics of Rudy trousers. These are some FF Rudys from probably over a year ago (wool-silk twill, maybe my fav EP pants ever), and it's not a full shot but you can see they're still pretty slim on my thighs. So for anyone wondering if the Rudy is a "full-fitted" pant it's definitely not. I'm by no means a fat guy or anything like that either, I just have some thighs that are a little too big for Walts. The belt is EP as well, brown CXL I bought about 3 years ago.

    Quick question... I'm looking for a couple presents for Christmas and am considering the johnstons lambswool scarves. My personal experience of lambswool in a scarf in the past has been negative because the scarves I had were too short and too scratchy. The measurements on the website address the first concern well. Could someone please comment on the feel of the scarves in order to address the second? I'm in Philly and don't know if I can arrange a trip to NY soon.

    Figured this Fall Contest was worth coming out of retirement for.

    Thanks for all of the feedback on the Driggs guys!

    The rise is going to be a touch lower than the Walt, but I wouldn't call it a "low rise" trouser. It's along the lines of the slim Incotex fit. I understand that it won't work for some guys - especially tall customers who might like to wear it more dressed up, but my goal for next year is to produce a range of similar-fitted trousers, chinos, and jeans with a good amount of size parity. Many of our customers will be able to wear all of them, and some other guys will prefer one fit over the other. I just want to offer a lot of new and varied options. Certainly the Walts and the Rivets aren't going anywhere.


    Well, they're softer and less scratchy then most lambswool scarves, but they're still lambswool. We carry them because they have a great value for the price and they're very warm. In our shops we tend to sell the cashmere scarves about 3 to 1 over the lambswool. Those feel absolutely amazing.


    Here here - check it out guys! The auction is for a great cause, and you can win an MTO Southwick hopsack jacket!


    The Driggs is going to come in a range of cotton twills. Once those drop, it's no problem to cut a Walt special order on demand for our usual cotton Walt price ($165). Just drop us an email.

    Depends how sensitive you are. I got the lambswool and it's too scratchy for me. I'll be getting a cashmere one soon.
