    I am interested in purchasing some Epaulet trousers through the made to order service. I am undecided on the style, Walt versus Rudy cut. Historically, I have had some difficulty fitting in slim cut pants due to the thigh area being to slim. Also, I am not particularly fond of pants that are low rise. I have questions about the thigh and rise measurements displayed on the website and was wondering if Mike or someone else from Epaulet could weigh in on the following.

    Do you measure the thigh from the four points of intersection at the crotch...

    or below that point to account for the widest point of the thigh? Like this…

    In reference to the rise measurement, do you measure from the crotch intersection like this…?

    I assume it is from the intersection point, but want to be sure.

    Thank you in advance for your reply and help.

    Thanks!



    :(

    I needed to lose some weight before I could reasonably fit in a stock size.

    Well congrats on that accomplishment. I need to do the same as well.

    Out of curiosity what was it that had you choosing Rivets over some of the other cuts?

    thigh is widest point i believe. while i'm certain the crotch is measured down to the bottom where you put your widest point thigh measurement not the crotch intersection.

    Thanks! Took only like 3 years.

    Idk, mostly measurements. I really wanted the Driggs caramel duck canvas, especially with the button through coin pocket, but the thigh and leg opening were defo too small for me. The RCs are wider in both areas, so I chose pants that should fit, over pants with a button through coin pocket. Hopefully that was a wise decision.

    Then I was also considering the MTO english canvas in butterscotch, but again, the Walt is too tight in the thigh, and I think the Rudy is too wide at the hem. From what I can tell, the RC is kind of in between the Rudy and the Walt, and its measurements matched up best with what I was looking for.

    If I messed up, someone please correct me.

    You are spot on, Stitch. Only tweak is that Rudy and Walt have the same hem. The difference is the thighs.

    Sweetness, glad I got it right. Hem is an easy adjustment. I am short legged, so they always need a chopping anyways.

    Unless I'm mistaken, doesn't the garrand offer a more generous fit?

    Hey guys! We got a small box of belts in today - and these will be the last restocks of the year. We've been out of Navy 34 (for a 32 waist), Natural 34 (for a 32 waist), and nearly every size of brown for weeks. Those are all back in stock and ready to ship immediately. Here's the lineup:

    So, question to clarify. When you're talking about sizes for belts vs. trouser size, is that trouser size a real waist measurement, EP sizing (off of real by 1 inch usually), or average vanity sizing (2-4 inches)? I measure a 34 waist, in a real literal measurement, usually buy Walts in 34 (for the extra leg room) and have the waist taken back in. Would that be a 34 or a 36 belt?

    Thanks.

    You'll need a 36 inch belt.

    Snagged the brown cxl. Glad there was a restock before the end of the year. Can't wait to pair it with my indys.
