    Hmmm... I guess I don't have big thighs. Seem to fit into the Walts I just tried on for the first time pretty well without risk of bursting any seams. So hopefully you'll be OK.

    I only own one pair of Epaulet trousers at the moment, and I can't say my fits are that great yet, so I definitely won't be winning any contests. But it'll be fun nonetheless!

    A lifetime of soccer, ice hockey and cycling have thwarted many a successful trouser hunt. It's either the thighs or the front rise that kill me. I carefully looked over the measurements on the Donegals and they seemed within tolerance limits, so here's hoping.

    BTW, are you pleased with yours, Frank?

    Damn...I probably don't stand a chance in this contest either, but I will enter anyway. Maybe I'll get lucky and win the name-out-of-a-hat pair of Christmas trousers. :satisfied:

    Mike, I assume you'll choose for the finalists 5-7 different posters and each of their photos or just what you guys think is the best individual photo from the 5-7 posters?

    Can you tell I want these pants....:D

    Unlike some, I am not likely to include my face in fit pics. It's about the PANTS! I'm sure the SF community would thank me for not seeing my mug. If that excludes me from the popular vote, then I will take my chances with the random drawing. Might as well cycle off the PEDs...

    This, and the luck of my Irish blood are what I'm counting on too.

    That said, here's my first fit pic (I'm the hobbit holding the football):

    See, there's your answer. Less exercise, more leisure.

    Though I do in fact have a bike frame that needs to be turned into a bike. I'll plan to pedal slowly in order not to ruin my apparently Walt-friendly physique.

    But enough of that.

    In re. my thoughts on the trousers themselves, I'm certainly pleased with the preliminary fit. Need to get them hemmed to really see what I think.

    The fabric is sublime. Not sure where Mike and Adele find wool so soft, but it's decadent. Also picked up the horizontal cords. Think I'm about two or three years behind the trend on those, but again the fabric is plus plus. Sturdy, but not rough. Should break in beautifully.

    And the made in the USA construction looks to be as good as advertised.

    Really can't wait to get them on the road, though probably not in time for the contest sadly. I'll will, however, look forward to some knock down, drag out mano a mano among the many stalwarts here. It will be a heretofore unseen display, I have no doubt, of the sweet science... of wearing pants.

    Awesome on the contest. I'm certainly glad that you have enough material for two pair, with one winner being chosen at random. I plan on entering but I have no doubt that I will either vote for SVB, NYR or KG instead of myself.
