I have the Cone Smiths in 28 and took a 30 in the Staple chinos, for what it's worth.
Just grabbed the Racing Green canvas trousers.
I received my Thorogood No. 685s in cow-hide and I am pretty impressed. The welting was little rough around the edges, but nothing a little trimming didn't clean up. I think Mike was right on about the leather; the leather seems to fit in perfect with the spring/summer, but that can also be used for the fall. I don't know how well the sole would do on ice but I have my Redwing GTs for that. After applying a coat of Montna Pitch Blend, the color and consistency really looked like the beeswax leather on a Clark DB. I can't wait to work-in this pull-up and get a good look.
Here some grainy pictures (sorry) of the boot and comparing them with the color with the Redwing GT (chestnut & cigar colors). The No. 685 looks close to the cigar in the picture, but it is a few shades light in real life. The GT is obviously a smoother and it looks more dressy to me.
Thanks again Mike for all your help, the 9.5D fit perfectly!
Thanks for picking them up - you're going to love them! The fabric is pretty soft already, but it will get softer with washing. And although it's 100% cotton and not treated with any kind of wrinkle-free treatment, canvas and textured fabrics like it are naturally resistant to wrinkling. Fold them nicely after wearing them, and you shouldn't have to worry about it.
Yup, a half inch longer than they are now.
No, the chinos are a full 36" inseam while the Walt/Rudy's are hemmed at 34" with an extra 2" additional that can be let out.
But at 6'4", you're definitely at the edge. We may be able to run a few extra long trousers for you as a special order - maybe done with a 38" unfinished hem. Drop Matt a PM at leftofthedial if you'd be interested in doing that.
I believe that we're going to do both a SWB and a LWB special order. Looks like there's enough interest in both patterns.
And you're totally right on the trouser drawing - it completely got away from me. I'm going to be at our BK store tomorrow and we're going to rock it!
Absolutely. It's a great match to a cotton, wool, or textured silk tie. It looks great with knit ties. And I've seen a few guys were them with Hill-Side neckwear as well.
Awesome, glad that it worked out for you!
It's 10oz. A bit heavier than our usual 8.5oz chino canvas, but a bit lighter than the usual raw jean (12-14oz).
You know, I was just talking about that. I actually like that pocket quite a bit too. We may very well run that as a special variant for the early Fall, maybe with another tweak or two.
Thank you, glad that the boots worked out! Thanks for posting the pics too.
Yeah, my normal size is 29 - with the Staple chinos running slim, 30 sounds about right. A damn shame, that $85 price tag is so tempting haha.
3rd pair of Epaulet pants in 3 weeks! I hope the gunmetal chinos look as good as they do in the picture!
any red rivets incoming?
I saw that, thank you so much!
Yes, although I'm not sure whether the red color will be a chino or a cotton walt. We definitely have that covered though. I love me some red trousers.
Lots of good product going online this week too!
Bright red chinos, Mike! Also, requesting for other bright color chinos.
Got our first delivery from Gant Rugger for spring. A few gnarly shirts, a kick-ass sweater and a great raincoat.

I fell our of my chair when I saw those. Post pics when you get them.
scottcw did you sneakily went off to the washroom during work to try those on??
Those olive chinos are sweet. If anyone got a pair in 34 that doesn't work for them, send me a PM
A little personal, don't you think? I try on clothes at home.
