    +1! the XS shirts sell out extremely fast. if i don't pounce within the first couple hours, usually they are gone. even now, there are only a few shirts remaining in XS on the web store. a pre-order with swatches would be great.

    I just received my first pair of Epaulet Walts in slate Donegal, and have to say I am very pleased with the quality of the fabric and construction of the pant. The fit was however a bit of a surprise for me, as I am not used to having such well fitted trousers. They feel great when standing up, but become almost skin tight in the thigh when sitting with a leg crossed. I am 6'2", 170 lbs, take a 40L jacket and 32 pants. I bought these in 32 (TTS).

    It may be possible that this is just what pants are supposed to fit like, and my other pants are entirely too large for me, so I ask you for advice. I am looking for something that fits well, but do not want something inappropriately slim for a professional environment.

    Yeah I've got the pindot, so nice in person, I highly recommend it. That ocean chambray is kind of sexy.

    I might have to pull the plug on the Small even though the chest and the shoulders are both an inch larger than what fits me perfect.
    Thoughts? Shall i do it?

    It's Context's measurements that are really throwing me off because they say the chest of the Small pindot chambray is 19.5".

    Being that I haven't seen a single Gitman stockist carry the polka dot chambray in anything smaller than a S (I have only seen 4 carry it) I would suggest buying it.

    Context actually has XS along with S but they show different measurements.

    Why doesn't Epaulet restock the Smith jeans?

    Weird, no idea where they're getting that. It's definitely measuring out at 19" for me. It's a pretty awesome shirt.


    Ah sorry, our denim line - at least for the moment - is totally discontinued. If I can find a good production partner down the road then we may put them back into work in the future.

    But, we're going full-force with chinos, so they'll hopefully be a good, non-denim alternative for you.


    Oh man, Ocean Chambray is so good! It's very lightweight though, just as a heads-up.

    Was toying around with picking up that same shoe, different size. Can anybody check in with a report on fit?

    A few photos from a recent trip.

    Walt Pale Grape Herringbone. Really like how these are purple, but really just ever so slightly so.

    Walt Navy Donegal Tweed.

    Both Walts are very comfortable in warmer weather, though worn inside on the whole. The herringbone has a softer feel than the tweed, but both are fantastic fabrics with a nice weight to them.

    Other items are J Press jacket, MTO shirts, and a pair of AE loafers.

    Enjoying the Walts immensely.

    Can people school me on the Epaulet trouser fits? I'm looking for a slim fit with a bit of taper that I can dress up or down with. Is it Rudy, Walt or Rivet Chino for me? Thanks in advance.

    Walt.

    Unless you're aware that you have chunkier thighs/junk than most.

    Hmm, there's a very good chance that it will. Almost everyone bought the same size in this item as they would with the Barrie last.

    The usual equation is to go up a half size to compensate for a width change. On some shapes, this is problematic because the shoe becomes too long. But, given the lace to toe nature of this item, I think that you're pretty safe. Even if the boot is long, the lacing is so extensive that you shouldn't slide around. You probably won't notice it at all.


    Nice, thanks for picking them up - and thanks for posting the pics!


    The Walt is most likely your ticket. That's going to be slim and tapered, and nearly every walt can be dressed up or down.

    The Rivet Chino is a more casual piece, but plenty of my customers have no problem wearing it as a business-casual item. It depends on how formal your workplace is. But the fit should definitely work for you as well.
