    I'm looking to buy my first pair of trousers from Epaulet and was looking for something that I can wear as an alternative to my denim.
    I live in Florida, and i'm a college student so something that can be dressed up and still be a daily wearer.

    I was looking at the Walt Cramerton? Any thoughts guys?

    Oh, and Happy New Year's Eve!

    Think he was more interested in the cobblestone though.

    Yeah, I think you should be fine with a size 28. Mine stretched about an inch in the waist if not more.

    Obviously late for the fit contest, but here are the cramerton's (bad with the self timer, so it caught me moving my watch):

    Nice look dude. If that's the Gant x MB blackwatch pullover in a size small and you ever think about selling it, let me know! I'm so pissed I missed it on sale everywhere. Bought it earlier in the season, but decided it just wasn't worth close to $200. Had every intention of picking it up at a discount.

    ^^ Medium and I'll probably keep it forever! Ha, it's a great piece, definitely keep an eye on ebay. I've seen Larges at Nordstrom on clearance for $109, as well

    Thanks much. For what it's worth, I always throw these on after getting home from work and pretty much all weekend long. They're also my go-to pair for casual Friday.


    I would say that an inch of stretch sounds about right. However, do keep in mind that a wash will shrink it right back. I imagine sizing down by one should do you fine.

    Hey guys, thanks for all the votes so far! The poll's open until midnight tonight, so please cast your vote if you haven't yet. There's some great work in there.
    Thank you guys so much for the feedback, and I'm thrilled that you're so pleased with the jackets! It's definitely a leap of faith to special order a sportcoat, and we really appreciate it. We ended up doing about 40 special order Southwick jackets in shorts and longs this year, and they went off without a hitch. Southwick is really excited about our capsule collection, and the did all the work quickly and correctly. If any customers out there are interested in special ordering a sportcoat, then drop me a line - it's an easy process.
    Well, the "gateway drug" for Epaulet trousers are definitely the Rivet Chinos. Any of the canvas varieties will be excellent for Florida, and they can certainly be dressed up if need be. The overall fit is similar to a slim-straight jean, so they make an ideal alternative to denim. The Cramertons are officially my favorite cotton trousers ever. Given the higher rise and tabbed waistband, they can be dressed up more than the Chinos. Either would work very well for you, but for regular college wear, I'd probably steer you towards the chinos first.
    [ Yes, we're RADICALLY expanding our Chino program for the Spring. Our first delivery will be around mid-to-end February, and they'll be a bunch of new fabrics and colors to choose from. We also optimized our production, so restocks will come at more regular intervals. My goal is to have the chinos generally available in all sizes in several colors and fabrics, and run a bunch of special edition runs alongside those basics. Lots of good stuff to come! quote name="applky" url="/t/111211/epaulet-shop-official-affiliate-thread/8910_90#post_5073313"]
    Epaulet trousers mentioned in the NYT, as per usual:

    [/quote] Awesome, thanks for posting this. My mother always freaks out when we're in the Times too!
    Absolutely. We'll get our first delivery of Penobscots in Natural Chromexcel and British Tan around the end of Feb. We can also accommodate extended sizes and widths-narrows via special order if anyone needs them. And thanks for ordering - glad that you dig the new gear!
    Awesome, thanks for posting this! Always great to hear about good feedback from tailors.
    Our pleasure Matt, thanks for your understanding and enjoy the jeans!
    Ah, sorry about that - can you drop me a PM with what you're interested in? I'll get it sorted pronto.

    When yall bring in more materials for your chinos, any chance those make it over into the Walts and Rudys? I fear the chinos would be a bit too slim for me, but wouldn't mind having a few more cotton options

    Very good news! I'm looking to break into the rivet game this S/S. Mike or experienced wearers- If the 30 walt fits me perfectly would you recommend the 30 or 31 in rivet chinos. I was leaning towards 31 but any input would be appreciated.

    Well, the chinos generally run in between the Walt and Rudy fit.

    If you take a Walt, then the chinos will definitely work. If you take a Rudy and it's not an especially tight fit on you, then there's a good chance that the chinos will work there too.

    I'm 30 in both Walt and Rivet and both fit great, for what it's worth.

    Yikes! I thought I got all the chinos I needed for a while. If there are upcoming color(s) that I need/want (medium or light grey??), I'm going to have to cop. Better make sure my wallet can take it! :tounge:



    I have 3 pairs of Walts and 3 pairs of Rivets. They are all 32 and fit very well. I'd say the Rivets are slightly more snug than the Walts, but definitely not tight or anything.
