    The Driggs look like a great fit for the skinny runners among us. However, I do wish there were some wool or linen options.

    I must be losing my mind. I would have sworn that earlier when I compared sizes, they were different, but I just checked again, and yeah they are the same... guess i should lay off of the crack in the morning.

    I'm sure if the model's a hit they'll expand it to other fabrics. Way too skinny for me but I hope it works well for others. Awesome to see the continued expansion.

    So its skinnier than the walts? Did the model size up bc it doesnt look that skinny and the waist appears pretty loose

    From the knee down primarily, it seems. I guess it depends on how the waist measurements suit you with the lower rise.

    Driggs is ordered! I cannot wait. Given the leg opening I think it would be great to see a knee measurement as well. I typically taper my Rivets so I am thrilled about this. Despite not having a small waist I do like a fairly tapered leg :)

    So funny story about cramerton cloth - my brother is moving out of the place we used to live, and stumbled across two trousers I ordered when Epaulet was switching to their new site and had a pretty big sale.

    They were a sample butterscotch Walt and a Rudy cramerton cloth that I had picked up for $60 and $90 each but never actually wore. Got the Rudy tapered at the tailor and it fits perfectly now!

    I tried on the driggs and I'd say FrankCowperwood is correct -- more tapered below the knee, and definitely a lower rise than a Walt. I liked them quite a bit. I took a (not great) fit pic that I could post up.

    Do post the pic. Interested to see the fit.

    Did you take your same Walt size?

    Sure, here you go. Yeah I tried them on in my normal Walt size (which is now 33 from 32... gotta get back to that whole exercising thing...).

    Is there a reason the inseam on the Driggs is so short (compared to stock Walts and Rivets)?

    The website pics don't do the slim leg justice. (they look sort of baggy)
    Thanks, this picture helps define that much better.
