    The tattoo looks good. But it's doubly awesome since you got it done by Civ. You should see if Ian Mackaye or Dr. Know will give you a haircut or something. Talk about great sourcing...

    Hah! Not sure that I would trust either of those guys with a haircut. Somehow I'd end up shaved or dreaded.

    Here's some pics of the man at work:

    I sold this to someone here, so no worries on the return. And you don't need to credit me anything. You guys took a hit on those shirts (not surprised people grabbed them up at that sale price). I'll be back for something else from you before long!

    FWIW, it would be awesome to see a chino cut variation that was not quite as slim at the leg opening. Something like a true straight leg, that's not full or baggy, but still has a little more room. Just a thought....


    Cool, thanks for the understanding!

    Hey Mike, I love the Rivet Chino's, but I've got pretty slim legs and am used to something a bit slimmer (many will think I'm crazy, some will agree). Do you think a tailor would be able to take them in .5" in the leg and still maintain the Herringbone twill detail on the seam?

    Thanks

    Wowzers. Don't you also have an oil painting of a boston terrier?

    Thanks for posting that up! This is a preview of some good things to come y'all!

    It'll be interesting Mike. I have a couple of 40 gallon stainless vats on order with 200,000 BTU burners. That'll get me up to a dozen pieces or 20 yards of material per run which makes my life a whole lot easier. Still debating if we should run two colors or just one on the first batch.

    Hmm, I imagine that it would be tough to taper from the outseam and keep the taping, but maybe he can taper with the inseam? Good tailors can work all kinds of magic.

    Oh man I wish. I posted that in "things you want, but never knew existed." That thing has haunted my dreams for months.

    TBH if your tailor is good he could taper from both sides and keep the taping, but the guy I go to is an absolute wizard (he would remove part of the taping, taper the legs, then fold over the tapered flaps and sew the taping back on; this is more than most are willing to do, I'd imagine).

    Tapering from the inside is definitely doable. Be extremely clear that that's what you want; the default I believe is tapering equally from both sides.

    Are there any plans to make pants/jeans in larger sizes? I'd love to buy a pair or two, but I could not fit into a 36 if I tried.
    Michael- Raf from California here. I spoke to you on the phone about a pair of slim Walt trousers in the glen plaid some time ago. They are absolutely beautiful trousers. I took a chance and had them let out by my tailor, but I am on the fence about whether they are still too slim or not, nothing ventured nothing gained right? I would like to echo the sentiment for some larger sizes or cuts though, I would be content if you carried the Rudy in a broader assortment of fabrics ( I know I missed out on some, but the restock appears to have been minimal) and I think there are more of us out there. I don't consider myself to be fat at 5'11" and 190 and I am working towards 180. The problem area on the slim trousers from you, Mabitex and from their measurement chart, Howard Yount is in the seat and thigh. I exercise and have muscular thighs. I am not sure if any of the weight I am losing will be coming off those areas. Unfortunately this leaves me with few options that aren't tent like. Food for thought. I'll be keeping an eye on your stock! Just noticed the medium grey flannel in Rudy, THANKS!

    Thanks to both of you. Do you happen to live in Los Angeles enigma? I'm not that familiar with tailoring besides getting a hem done. I'll have to find a wizard out here, because I really want to make those Chino's work and I imagine I only need them taken in a half inch or less.
