Here are my Hoyt's after a year of wear.
Those are some sick chinos. I have some Petrol Blue Rudy trousers on the way. Two sizes, actually—33 and 34. The 32 was way too tight around the thigh and ass, and Mike's been really understanding in me looking for the perfect fit. Once I look that down, I think I might be getting some chinos, too!
Also, are those LWBs shell? #8?
NYR, lookin great as always! Are those cuffs 2 inchers? I've only had the cajones to creep up to 1 3/4.
One other thing, in your second pic I notice your right pocket is bowing out a bit. I get the same issue and am wondering if I should go a little larger in the waist and have them taken in so my ass has a little more room. Anyone have experience with this?
These are on par with any other chino out there. They don't have the street cred look like the rivets, but to me they're not that kind of pant. These to me are that old school shit that your grandad wore to work in the warehouse after he got home from kicking the shit outta some Germans or Japanese, then doubled as weekend wear with a white Hanes tee.
Thanks RE, these are a bit tight in the ass, but a bit loose in the waist (normal in RTW for me). For me its a catch 22...I think the only time its noticed is on the forums and in still pics. Once you go up in the waist, its $$ on tailoring work and then the pant leg isn't quite the same fit. I put up with it and tell all my internet haters if they ever saw me in real life they'd stfu. My 2cents
Thanks so much for coming by, and sorry that I missed you. I'm at our Manhattan store today where shit is bananas! Really glad that you dig the chinos and cramertons so much. I love the liberty shirts too - they're like the crack-cocaine of epaulet shirts for me.
I'm surely going to use the "10lb sausage in a 5lb bag" line. That's a keeper.
Thanks for posting the pics broheim!
Dude, they look great - thanks for posting them!
Nice - let me know how those sizes work out for you.
And, I've got a fit photo of my own for today:

Sick pantaloons....that cloth in a cargo = seks. RAW DOG.
I'm surprised there's still one pair of the horsehide 685 boots left... in my size too
So that means just one thing: Horsehide or Crazy Horse?
I get more compliments on my horsehide 685 boots than anything else I own, but I think you can't go wrong with either.
^^ I reckon the Crazy Horse if you want a more historically accurate 685, but I'd personally go with the horsehide if you don't mind a 676/685 hybrid boot!
A pair of old-stock 685 for reference:
Which of the trouser cuts is most similar to the Smith denim?
Have a pair of Smiths that are my favorite denim presently and would like to pick up some trousers.
I am a 28, so, I risk getting pants that will fit too large.
I did a hot wash/dryer w/ the smiths on day one, and they have fit perfectly since. Been wearing for a few months.
I think that this is the week that the trousers drop.
Question to those who own Cramertons: do you was them in the washing machine, hand wash or dry clean? I know they are cotton, but I tried washing my stone Rudys and the material is kind of perma wrinkled and pretty much unwearable right now. I have a pair of Cramertons I still need to get hemmed and am leaning towards getting them dry cleaned going forward.
Those shirts are crazy awesome.
Someone sell me their 30" digicamo chino's!
I think Im going to dry clean these.
Regarding those Cramertons: I've been thinking about them, but I get stuck on the back flap pockets. The fabric looks great, and I love the Rudy fit. Rivet chinos are too skinny for my legs. But I just don't know about those flaps. I wonder if anyone has tried taking them off. Would this work, or would it leave "scars" where the buttons had been? And would it just spoil the look of them?
