    ^ Awesome look TK....the more I see the French Blues the more I'm mad I missed them. I need to jump on the lightweight canvas version the second they drop.

    These and the Caramel ducks have quickly become my favorite pants. It's a struggle not to wear them every day...still got work to do on my New Standards. The lightweight version sounds awesome. Hopefully I can pick up another color in that weight when it comes out.

    +1.

    What am I supposed to do if I wear a size 31? Based on the measurements, none of the trousers would fit my 32" waist :cry:

    So, what gives better results, sizing up and bringing the waist in, or sizing down and letting the waist out?

    FYI I have a 31" waist and the 32" rivet chinos fit fine.

    i would size up and then wash them in warm water to get little bit of shrinkage. I've tried the 32" and 33" rivet chinos and both fit me great. the 32" was tight at first but loosened up after I wore them in, and 33" is little bit more roomier but not too much.

    so in the end I think its better to size up because you have more to work with

    Contrary to the common belief, castration WILL NOT affect your waist size! :teach:

    Hey guys,

    Got a pair of Rivet Chinos today in the new fit (adjustable waistband). I took the same size as I always have in the previous fit, but like Mike warned, they're a little bit tighter in the seat.

    These fit great everywhere except for the waist and seat (a little bit hard to button that last button). Since the fit in the thighs, calves, etc. are great, would it be advisable to exchange these for a pair one size up, or to just take these to the tailor and let out the waist by an inch or so?

    If you're good everywhere else, let the waist out holmes. If the thighs are tight, I'd size up.

    Thanks, NYR. I suppose my question really was - will letting out the waist make these pants fit right on me if they fit well everywhere else? Correct me if I'm mistaken: doesn't letting out the waist just allow you to "sag" your pants a little lower?

    I suppose I'll take these to the tailor tomorrow. Does anybody know how much total these can be let out (1 inch, 1.5 inches, etc.)?

    Thanks for the help!
