after seeing the quality of the material i will definitely keep them and go to the tailor this weekend..
about how much should it cost to have the waist size increased? I've never had to pay for such a modification before, so i'm not sure
i'm guessing it should be like $10 bucks, i will call tomorrow to find out
Slightly off topic here, but seeing as there aren't going to be any more Epaulet jeans, can anyone recommend some that fit similarly to the rivet chinos?
The price depends on the quality of your tailor. I have 2 tailors that I use, one is cheaper, and the other is more expensive. Both can do and have done this job for me. The former charges about $12 while the latter charges about $22. The former just gets the job done, while the latter tries to match the color of the stitching and make it look as original as possible. This is a very basic job. Any competent tailor can do it.
I have this sweater, sold out, in size small:
its just a tad oo small and I'm looking for a Medium. In anyone is interested I'll take the French Blue or the Burgundy...
Mine is only worn two times...
^ I have that cardigan and highly recommend it (mine is the black grape). Someone should take it off his hands. The ribbon taping on the buttonholes is clutch.
NYR I think we're similar sizes in most things and a medium is definitely what you want.
Received the desert duck and olive cargo service pants today. Major props to Epaulet for these. The desert duck is a little tighter in the waist than the olive, but I'm hoping they'll give a little over the course of today as I try to break them in. I have a tailor on the first floor of my new job, i'll get em both hemmed up this week (for some reason, I just don't dig the turn-up look... I've got a 30" inseam and it somehow just makes my legs look even shorter...)
Here they are with my black jumpers:
Now to just get em in Gunmetal, Navy, and French Blue...
Starting to really get the itch to try some Rivet pants. After some pm'ing, it seems that even my big a$$ can fit into them...
Awesome, you got the "celebration of life" set! Those things look so good together!
I love those Armor Lux shirts. We picked up some sweaters from them for Fall which are really boss too. Slim fit, made in France, and have a nice heavy hand to them without being scratchy.
I think that it should be okay. Chances are you won't take it in the full 2" after you get fitted by the tailor, and I don't believe that the pockets will look too close together.
Rock and roll, glad that they're working out for you! They're some tough-ass pants for dealing with tough-ass Brooklyn kids.
I definitely planned for the new chinos to be a hit. But I didn't expect them to sell as explosively as they did - especially the bolder colors. French Blue caught us totally off-guard. It's funny because I love that color and we've pretty much offered something in it every Spring since '08. But this is the first year that it's really happening. And it's pretty perfect in a duck canvas chino. There's something nice about a bold color like that being made up in a tough, masculine fabric.
The response to the new chinos has been really exciting. I'm thrilled with it, and we're really going to build out the line with some exciting new fabrics. Colored duck canvas can be tough to restock because we have to special-order the cloth and there's often a bit of a lead time for it, but we'll introduce all sorts of other options. It's my plan to try and maintain good inventory of the basics (navy-khaki-gunmetal) at all times and layer in a constant stream of special editions that come and go regularly.
Now we're just waiting on Plum. Man, is that one going to good!
They look great - thanks for picking them up! Dig those boots too.
Try the APC New Standard or one of the 3sixteen fits. You can PM Andrew Chen at Self Edge NY to find out which one of his fits is closer to the Smith jean. He's chainstitched many a smith jean, so he should know
Yes, sorry for the confusion on that. Our trouser factory puts Dry Clean Only into every pair of pants. But you can absolutely machine wash the cotton walts. I'd recommend cold wash and hang drying.
After my 2 kids scared the shit out of Matt and Jake on Smith St. today in my Caramel Ducks, the LS Alden Ultimate Jumper with customized soles, and Theory up top:
I want brown hair so I can wear all brown like that
I can't wait until I can kop some caramel ducks... your pics keep on impressing the fact that I need 'em.
Prettys oon I'll be wearing clothes to match the skin on the top of my hed though...so...
So I got the navy blue rivets the other day here in Los Angeles. Great color and quality.
I went with a size 34, because that worked well for me with 2 slim walt wool trousers I own.
But the rivets are just too tight. Real ball huggers. Will have to get let out and see
how that works as the legs are perfect. More of a crotch-waist issue. I also thought
the cut didn't look quite as good in the seat compared to the slim walts. But beautifully
Let me know how it works out after you let out the extra fabric -- I have the same issue with a pair of mine.
