    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?

    Yes, they're too tight.

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

    I had this happen on a few pairs - the fly didn't line up with the stitching. I had my tailor move the button, just like you're thinking, and they were good to go.

    So Mike, when are you going to open polling on t-shirt colours/offer a t-shirt MTO program? I'm looking at a Pantone colour chart, and the range of possibility is exciting.
