    Has anyone tried some of the epaulet raw denim jeans? I don't have a pair of nice... I am a reformed true religion junkie, and have finially matured. I was looking at Naked and Famous, APC, and EPaulet ones.... Not looking for something ULTRAtight. I have a slim but muscular build.

    I have a pair of the Smith's, but honestly I don't wear them too much. I'm a 32 in the rivet chinos and trousers and was told to go with a 32 for their jeans but I really, really wish I had sized down. Much too baggy for me to wear. However, I can say the cut, construction, and materials appear to be top notch. I'd just personally recommend sizing down 1.

    I have a small suggestion for the site, Mike: comparison pics (or at least different pics) of the Rudy/Walt trousers. Currently both use pictures from the Walt on the same model (eg Navy Lambswool), which could be a little misleading.

    Why not just exchange it out for a smaller size? Am I missing something?

    Did they stretch out to that or were they always a bit big? How do you care for them (wash/dryclean/jump in the ocean)? I think i may go with a pair at some point this year.

    I am looking at getting a new pair of jeans since my APC NS are now too big and am looking at the Smiths. I take a 34 in the chinos which fit good but I think I could probably go down a size in the Smiths. My only concerns are:

    - the thighs (will they stretch, or will they be too tight)
    - the waist (same as above)
    - washing process (I know they will shrink in the waist bust should wash before wearing or wait for 6 months to 25 years?)

    They've already been washed.

    They didn't stretch a whole lot, but it was enough to be noticeable and make me go back to just wearing my Nudies.

    question for those of you that also have the navy rivet chino - mine pick up a ton of lint/fuzz/white stuff, and even keep that stuff through a wash - the fabric is so soft and has that kind of brushed hand, it just seems to pick everything up.

    what do you guys do to manage that? the lint roller works ok, but doesn't get everything. any thoughts?

    It will be worth the wait...just received my Nat. Chrom. Belt (thanks for fast shipping) and the match to my Epaulet Nat. Pennys is right on the money. Very glad I waited and passed on the belt from Leffot. Epaulet's is much nicer and less expensive. Thanks M and A.

    yeah I'd appreciate a tip on this (same story w my navy chinos) - I have a cat so I'm stocked deep w lint rollers, but I have other chinos that exhibit similar behavior...

    No, but the chino shorts do: http://www.epauletshop.com/servlet/the-1076/EP's-Rivet-Chino-Short/Detail

    I think that's what you're looking for. They also come in Navy.

    I was in the LES shop today and I saw Mike in person for this first time; he was awesome and friendly as usual. I also saw the fabric swatches for the next pant run and they were pretty bananas. Planning on picking up the gray on gray glenplaid, a brown/ochre check and maybe the grape herringbone.

    BTW, I don't think you can actually cuff those and get the desired look of the tape on the cuff. If you look at the pictures the outer fabric wraps over it quite a bit at the hem. I hope, if Epaulet does another run of these, the tape can run further down. I know there has to be some wrap but I think it would be possible to make the taping reach further down for a cuff.
