    I'm beating the hell out of them. Literally wearing EVERY SINGLE DAY, all day. The back pocket where I keep my massive otterboxed iPhone is tearing off...surprised my 8th graders haven't broken my balls about it yet.

    Illusion. The cut is very similar to the Rivet, and is actually a touch slimmer in the thigh than Rivets,and already a smaller leg opening--so def slimmer overall than Walts. This is assuming a same/same size comparison.

    I think some people sized up.

    If you can wear Walts comfortably then the Wilshire jean should work pretty well for you, depending on how you like your denim to fit. The Fairfax fit is going to be more for guys who can't fit into the Walt and can only wear the Rudy cut, so that might be a little big for you.

    ^ Agreed with @Beatlegeuse. My Walt 32s are perfect in the waist and a bit loose in the thighs, and I can take a Wilshire 31 for a very slim fit. If, like you @tigerpac, my Walts fit less loose, I'd think my regular Walt size or one up would work perfectly. You can also take your rivet chino size if that's different from your Walt size.

    I don't disagree w/ this, but just be aware of the thigh measurements. I can wear 32 Walts easily. 32 Rivets fit slim but fine. 32 Wilshire jeans were well oversize in the waist--could almost slip them off over my hips--but the thighs were snug. Not crazy tight, but snug and def slimmer than my Rivets (which are slimmer than my Walts).

    It's a thigh thing. Not an uncommon issue for me...

    Same for me. Some of this just boils down to body type.

    Definitely 36's in Walts and Rivets.

    So I've been debating it over and over in my mind: to cuff or not to cuff the tweed walt pants? What do you guys suggest?

    Size 36 is standard stocking.

    So would 38's be a special order.? I would assume yes but figured I would ask.

    After seeing NYR's pic from about a week ago I'd been meaning to wear my KZO... so a random fit pic.

    38s are part of the special order program.

    I believe Mike has said there are going to be a lot of choices in special order trousers coming for S/S, including Rivets, Walts, Rudys, and a couple (?) of new chinos.

    You can specify details too, including the hem length.

    Pretty much full service and absolutely excellent trousers and chinos.

    Hmm my interest is very much peaked in the jeans now! Thanks for the sizing info guys. As somebody used to the high-priced Japanese raw denim brands am I going to be disappointed in these or am I going to feel ripped off paying 2-3x for those?

    So far my experiences with Epaulet and their fine clothes has been the later. Thanks again.

    I don't know anything about high-end Japanese denim, so I could be very wrong, but I'm going to say that Wilshires aren't going to (and aren't intended to) replace specialty denim that costs 2x-3x more.

    That being said, the denim is soft, it's breaking in nicely for my taste, and the cut is classic Epaulet.

    So I'd say odds are you'll be pleased.
