Epaulet "Strawberry Thief" Button-Up & Chocolate Wool Flannel Trousers
A vote of confidence for the horsehide Thorogoods here. I picked them up a couple of weeks ago, and they're fantastic so far. The fit is true-to-size. I'm an 11D in the Barrie last; the 11.5D Thorogood fit me perfectly. The gel insole is very comfortable—gentle on my creaky knees. I'm looking forward to beating the hell out of them this winter. I'm sure they'll come through beautifully.
How do Epaulet shirts measure across the midsection in size L? I measure 42 up top, so I would probably have to get an L, but my waist is at 31.
nice kg. i really should put some cuffs on some of my pants. nice look. i don't have the balls to pull off some of the new shirts, but they are badass. i especially like the paisleys.
Any short skinny guys around here pick up the chinos? I'm a 30" inseam and prefer narrow leg openings. I fear hemming the gunmetal chinos to 32" will ruin that aspect.
What's the hem measurement about 3" above the actual?
= ruined project
just curious, do you ask the tailor for a permanent cuff or do you just fold it yourself?
I had it tailored as a permanent cuff. I think it's 1-3/4".
I have mine hemmed to 31ish and they look great. I can post an opening measurement later, but the taper in that last couple of inches isn't strong enough to be noticeable. My new gunmetals are going in tomorrow!
This. I have both Thorogoods and I like to Wolverines too (might get a pair at some point), but nothing beats the horsehidel leather in my opinion.
I'm interested in the Thorogood in horsehide but I'm curious if anyone has any opinions on how they'll do in the snow based on the sole they have.
Sorry for re-posting, but I think my question got lost in the mix a few days back...
That's why I kopped the Danner Lownsdales, not from Mike but Tanner Goods directly. But Mike's smart in picking them up; they're going to be great for Alberta winters.
Confession: I check the sizes left on those navy lambswool Rudy's like every day... Can't wait to pull the trigger...
