    Hopefully someone that has this will chime in and comment. I will give it a shot though. Sleeves look too long while the overall length of the jacket looks okay. Also, I'm going to guess that you are probably between sizes on the shoulders. Not much help... Have thought about getting one of these but just havent pulled the trigger yet. Kind of hard for me to get this while I'm in Houston and we are going to have another day over a hundred degrees.

    why dont you order one size down and then return the one you dont want or both if you hate the fit?

    styleforum members get return/refunds so take advantage of it. ive done this on two occasions and mike and adele were more than happy to make me satisfied with my purchase

    How does the colour of the Cramerton trousers compare to the Golden Khaki rivets? They seem quite similar...

    Thanks

    the fit on that CPO looks right to me. it's an overshirt/jacket. it's not meant to be worn extremely fitted. that's just my take though.

    the only problem with rivet chinos is that once you get one pair, you need to have more. the canvas and cramerton are out of this world, so solid.

    I live in Cobble Hill, so an easy walk to the Carroll Gardens/Cobble Hill/Boerum Hill location [I'll avoid using "BoCoCa"....].

    Is there a particularly good or bad time to stop by the shop?

    I agree, it's supposed to be worn more as a jacket than a shirt. Looks good.

    Mike,

    Can you elaborate on the pindot shirt(s)? Is this Gitman or Epaulet line?

    Thanks for the help guys. I may just have the sleeves shortened a bit instead of ordering a small.

    It looks pretty good to me as it looks. I think that a Small is going to be really tight in your chest. The sleeves could be shortened a bit if you want, but it's also a shirt-jacket, so having them a little long doesn't detract from the overall fit IMO.
    I'm gonna agree with Nan here. I'm constantly pimping the Cramertons - they're really freaking excellent for true Bizcaz. If you don't specifically need to dress them up, then I'd recommend the Khaki Canvas Rivet Chinos. Trad khaki color, nice middle weight that can be worn all-year round, and the US canvas cloth is really comfortable and tough.
    Cramerton is a variant of the British Khaki color, it's a dark tan with a bit of an olive cast. Golden Khaki is substantially lighter in tone and has a bit of a golden cast.
    Haha, "BoCoCa" always makes me laugh. No, you can stop by anytime - everyone on staff is totally knowledgeable on all of our products.
    Yup, agreed.

    Yo dudes. I got a great pair of Rudy's this summer in the summer weight gray wool. Size 30. I'm kind of between size 30 and 32. Got the 30s let out about an inch and cuffed. I'm currently planning my next pair and am debating on whether I should get another size 30 to let out or get the 32 and get it taken in. Would more fit pics be helpful?

    Do the Cramerton trousers have any kind of drape to them, or is the material more like a chino? I need a khaki-colored trouser that's still reasonably thick/durable. Should I be looking at a different fabric?

    Cramerton's are going to be perfect. It's like a thick chino cloth that holds a crease very well.

    Capes for the Ladies


    Hey guys, I want to show you our wool capes from Fidelity. If you need a cool Fall gift for the lady in your life, these things are pretty perfect. It's still 80 degrees in NYC, and we're selling them like crazy in our stores. They're one size fits all, made in the USA, and actually quite warm. Not to mention cute as hell on your girl.

    Sounds good. I need something that looks and drapes more like a trouser, but in a tougher fabric (these will be worn outdoors often). I'll go ahead and order them. They seem to fit the bill perfectly, and those rear flap pockets... :nodding:

    Hooded capes are so sick. When are the men's versions coming out? Time to get medieval (but actually?)
