    perhaps just size up on the new rivet chinos and have the waist taken in.

    Actually, I think you might be right. If I order a 36 instead of a 34, that gives me enough room for my upper legs... but I'd need the waist brought in like two inches... would be be too much surgery and throw off the balance of the back, I wonder?

    Also, I wonder if it would still be possible to get in on the next order of the caramel ducks...

    It comes out to 12 inches.

    And the back waistband is level with the front waistband.

    i believe that's the issue. i think they naturally have a dip in the front without it being lined up it should measure around the stated measurements.

    To NYR and/or anyone else,

    Do you find the chinos to stretch at all, in any places, after some wearing? I'm asking because it is cotton after all. In my head, I would expect very minimal stretching (if you sized the pants right and they're not loose on you).

    I've only worn my olive Service Pants twice and haven't noticed it.

    Hi Epaulet,

    Is there any chance the Epaulet Cigar Shell Officer's Indy boot will be making a reappearance anytime soon?

    When is the deadline for a special order for the next delivery of the double monks? I PMed Matt about this, but I read earlier that he was swamped with PMs, so I just wanted to make sure that I wasn't too late for this.

    I got my caramel canvas Rivets yesterday, they are awesome! Great color and great fit.

    Side note, I have a 44L Brown Houndstooth jacket that I am thinking about selling - not yet altered, has just been in the closet since I got it. I'm getting married in August and could use the cash for a tux. I'd sell at Epaulet cost of jacket plus $50 for custom size, $645. PM me if you'd like more info.

    Anyone have a handle on how the Inca last fits compared to a Barrie?

    Why not just email them about it? I'm sure they'll take care of you.

    I think posting about a customer service issue is a valid use for the thread. From his post it's pretty apparent that he's likely already emailed them about the issue. I know you weren't outright saying "Don't post customer service issues publicly until you've emailed the vendor directly", but that's the underlying message I get from your post.

    Just seems a bit fanboyish to me. If you have have an issue and it gets resolved (which in this case I'm sure it will), that's great. Post a follow up. But as a consumer I'd still like to know that other customers are having issues in the first place, rather than just hearing about it if it doesn't get resolved to their satisfaction.

    Just a pet peeve I guess.

    I just checked my Walts and they're developing a rip in the same spot that has been mentioned earlier :confused:

    Overall, I'd say there's less width and less lateral toe room in the Inca than the Barrie. The Inca toe is pretty rounded despite how it looks, so there's plenty of room in length. I've got the Salinger double monks in shell in 10 UK and Barrie boots and shoes in both 10.5 D and 11 D. The 10 UK has started off tight, but I feel like I'm going to get good wear out of them with thin socks, which is pretty much how Barrie 10.5 D works for me. Barrie 11 is more a comfort size for me, but 10.5 UK wasn't available when I got the monks.

    Really, the Carmina construction has felt stiffer overall to me to start with. The soles are firm and the construction tight, so I'm also working through this difference.

    I'd suggest picking the Barrie size that gives you a little bit of extra room and go down .5 from that for UK sizing.

    Hopefully that helps some.
