    ^ The LES is a tailoring mecca. Rene on Orchard or Stanton Street Tailor around the corner will be able to do this easily, inexpensively, and well. I personally use Stanton, but I think for involved jobs the Epaulet guys use Rene. They're both great.

    Well the wait now begins. Just put my deposit in for the cigar LWBs. Just wish Alden could fill orders as quickly as Carmina.

    I also just put my deposit down. Looking forward to seeing the Leydon cigar longwings circa 2014.

    (But seriously thank you Alden x Epaulet thread for producing a shell longwing on a non-Barrie last.)

    It sounds like it may have been a blessing in disguise that size 32 sold out right away in the new french blue rivets. It forced me to determine that I was a fat 32 in the old rivets (LOL!) and ordered a pair of french blues in 33 in an effort to decrease the tension on the sewn buttons. Hopefully it works out.

    I've personally had trousers adjusted there. Mike has as well. They'll do a good job (especially the short/bald dude) and in a timely manner.

    Agreed, I only included them because I have not worn them yet.

    So it is either the Navy marls or a grey pant. Still need to decide on the sport coat.

    I think I'm in the same boat, my next rivet order (or should I say Rivot...lol) will go up to a 33. The 32 in the old fit me fine, I just think for my body shape (big ass) and the new cut that makes the waist line narrower, I need to go up to a 33. I'm going to have my 32 caramel and french blue taken out in the waist.


    I totally hear that, in fact, I was debating wearing mine tomorrow as well because I haven't worn them yet. But we're having Inside Schools come in for a report on our school so I'll be dressed up more.

    Mike, question for you:
    In the past I've had some cotton chinos let out, but opening them up left a small, but noticeable line where they were opened. Do you think I have to worry about this with the duck cloth or should the open weave really make it unnoticeable?

    I can post pics of my letting out the waist 1".
    Would be done but I broke a fucking needle late last night!

    Certainly looking forward to seeing how the new chino's fit. Have my green ones being hemmed, french blue duck is on the way and will pick up the caramel when they are restocked.

    Blew out a good inch of the crotch seam on my new rivets by spreading my legs apart too abruptly or something today. Easy repair but I'm bummed I did that on the second day. :(

    I feel like I'm seeing a lot more french blue/IK blue in many collections this year. Maybe this is *the* year.
