    Nice, man! Any fitting suggestions for the Walt vs Rudy, as compared to the Rivets? I've got a pair of sz 34 8oz Rivets that are a nice fit, but maybe a bit too skinny for what I'm after for a more workwear feel (e.g. to pull off with my White's Boots). You think the Rudy's are a better option?

    Yup, definitely the Rudy. The Rivets run in-between the Walt and the Rudy in terms of leg fit, so I think that the Rudy will give you some extra room while still keeping a really tailored look. I wear a size 34 too, and find the Rivet Chinos to be a bit too slim. Rudy 34 is perfect on me. Here's the link to the Rudy item:

    And think about putting a 1" cuff on them - that will look ass-kicking with the White's boots!

    Alas, the way my pants were hemmed, 2 inch cuffs don't look good :( I will have to make do with the lowly 1 inch variety. The Cramertons are nice though.

    The difference between the 34 rivet's and rudy's seems huge. Rivet's work for me, but they would probably look better with a little thigh room and back rise. Due to this, I don't think Walt's would work for me (even though I slimmer denim that looks fine).

    The 13.5" thigh and 8.5" leg opening on the 34 Rudy is a downer.

    Any chance of a restock of the Tapered Rudy Trouser Petrol Blues? I really want that fuck-you blue in 32!

    I am beyond excited to get a look at the peacoat. I was rocking my Walt houndstooth checks today and got compliments as usual. I took stock recently and realized that it is a very rare day that I am not wearing at least one Epaulet piece if not more. The pants especially are just phenomenal, a great combination of cut and cloth.

    I'm wistfully looking forward to cooler days so I can break out my Triton jacket again. I wore the crap out of that thing last year.

    I apologize if this doesn't belong here, but I just got a couple of Epaulet shirts off B&S. The red chambary and the blue sunwashed chambray. I was wondering how you guys think the fit looks? I'm worried the blue shirt may be a little short on the sides as well as jutting out a bit. I'm very new to buying decent clothes and am unsure as to how something like this should fit.

    Short? If anything those shirts look a tad big.

    Thanks for letting me know, I believe the red one might be a bit big, I'm considering shrinking it a bit in the dryer. How long should a shirt like these be on the sides? Is it long enough as long as it covers a belt? Sorry if that is a really dumb question.

    The red chambray is definitely too big. The blue is a bit big in the chest and arms. Neither are too short.

    Thanks for the reply, is this something that any competent tailor could fix, or is it not worth the hassle?
