    More Caramel Ducks! Got mine today, absolutely amazing everything. I've yet to be disappointed! The Thorogoods are taking a beating. Excellent boots.

    Your belt is off...

    Anyway, how do people find the rise on the Rudy? Appropriate for very casual? business casual? with a sport coat (high rise)?

    I find that the Rudy fit is definitely within the appropriate range to wear with a sport coat. It is about ideal for business casual.

    I prefer a very high rise pant for sport coats so there's no shirt showing below the sport coat button. But I'm really looking for a business casual pant, because high rise pants look a little goofy without jackets.

    Picked up the brown calf Fitzgerald's today. Phenomenal shoes, I'm going to be putting these in heavy rotation. Saw a sneak peak of some more Carmina goodness while I was in the Smith Street shop. Mike, you are killing my wallet here, but please don't stop.

    Tried on the new "button" Rivet Chinos. I was a 29 before, with that being a bit tight in the thigh but the 30 being too loose in the waist. I'm definitely a 30 in the new cut, so PSA to all the 29/30 folks you may want to opt for the 30. The split waist band will make it easy to dial it in.

    Also, how did I not know real horn shoe horns were so nice? I need one now.

    I need some advice for a work event tomorrow. We are having an all hands meeting with the world wide sales force. Not really a suit and tie occasion, but definitely a step of from jean/chinos and a casual shirt.

    I'm thinking either the Navy Marl...

    Or the French Blue chino (yeah, I know I said no chinos, but I just got them)...

    [​IMG]

    Either with a white shirt. My dilemma is what sport coat to wear. I have the Navy Hopsack Caine from Epaulet...

    [​IMG]

    A grey/black Harris tweed from Epaulet (no pic) or a Margaret Howell brown Harris tweed...

    [​IMG]

    I am looking for feedback on which sport coat goes best with this look.

    Plot twist, I could also switch out the blue pants for grey pants. My first choice there would be the Navy Hopsack.

    Yo Mike-
    When is the next delivery of trousers/shirts expected?

    Can you give us a run-down of what will be in those deliveries?

    Thx!

    I would not wear the French Blue...if its a sales meeting these are a little too casual between the color, cut and fabric.

    Scott, if it's a "step up from chinos" then why wear a more casual form of chinos (the rivets)?

    I couldn't find mention of this in the thread but I notice that there is an Epaulet brand and a Gitman brand pindot chambray and they look very similar - is it the same fabric? What's the differences between the two?

    ^ It is indeed the same fabric. The difference is mainly in the fits of the respective shirts. Also Gitman's button down collar is a bit smaller. Last, all Gitman Vintage shirts are washed and tumble dried once by the factory before shipping.

    I've slowly realized that my new rivets are probably too tight. I got the 34s, but I still think the 36 would have been too big in the waist. I'm definitely interested in hearing about people's experiences getting the waist/seat let out. I mostly just need some room for my crotch to breathe.

    I think this is the case for me as well. I do like how slim the thighs are and now that they can be let out, I think I'll be doing that. Letting out the seat will ease the pressure on the crotch and thighs a touch as well

    Yeah I'm thinking the fix really wont be too hard. Anybody got a tailor rec in lower manhattan? I usually just take my pants across Orchard street for a 5 minute hem, but not sure I'd do the same for this operation.
