    I voted for Dylan as well.

    I'm glad I looked through the rest of the round in the contest. I went to HS with David from Goose Barnacle and haven't seen him in like 13 years. I will have to stop in to say hello.

    Thanks for the info on the Cords...I might have to pick up a pair of the Walts then. The Rudy's are a perfect fit for me, not too tight but not too baggy, so hopefully these will work for me too.

    Just picked up the olive moleskin trousers and need some advice. I was gonna take them to get hemmed but it occurred to me that the moleskin being cotton might shrink a lot. Obviously I'm not planning to throw them in the washing machine but I won't want to have them tailored to a perfect length and then shrink another inch on their first cleaning.

    Are the moleskins dry-clean only? If you're concerned about it, wash them first (if they're machine-washable) in cold water on the delicate cycle, hang them to dry, iron them, then get them tailored.

    Usually I'd feel comfortable throwing anything cotton in the wash but the tag says dry-clean only

    Check with Mike at Epaulet. I'm pretty sure it's safe to machine-wash any of his all-cotton trousers—he has tried to get the production crew to remove the dry-clean only tags from those trousers, but to no avail—but you'll want to confirm that with him first.

    I've emailed them about this before, and yes, the moleskin trousers are safe to machine wash and hang dry. They just use the same tag on all their trousers, despite the fact that the cotton ones can be washed. Also, yes, they did shrink a bit in length when I washed them. I didn't do before and after measurements, but it was definitely noticeable.

    Thanks for the replies fellas. Definitely going to give them a run through the washer before hemming.
