Did you receive my PM about trading in for the size 32? Will it ship tomorrow? I'm leaving town mid next week and would like to have them in and the old ones out before I go. I'm posting this here because I seem to have better luck reaching you here.
edit- now answered. Thanks.

I just altered my duck cloths, and there is a VERY small line of pinmarks.
I gave them a wash and that helped.
You wouldn't notice it unless you were really staring, and like, looking at my ass under a halogen light or something.
What sort of alternation did you do? Let out the waist?
You got pictures? How much did you let out?
I let the waist out 1" on my 34s and I'm happy to say I'm no longer muffin toppin'! They now feel about the same as the "EP" Rivet double-faced camo chinos I have (that have actual rivets) in size 34. They measure about the same, too, a shade over 35.5".
IMHO the main difference between the new and old Rivets is stretch. The duck fabric hardly stretches at all. With thinner fabric I could count on a 34.5" waist stretching to about 35.5" or so just by walking around, which is perfect. If I get a 36 typically it stretches to 37-38 and it's too baggy.
I won't post pics close-up pics because the duck cloth was relatively difficult to work with... the alteration will hold but it's not exactly show-off worthy. I'll post a fit pic tomorrow.
I went back a bit, but couldn't find the clear answer, so I'll ask here: If/When are the Caramel Duck Chinos getting restocked?
Thanks, and sorry. I'm guessing it's there somewhere...
Adding onto the restock questions, has Mike mentioned with the french blue chinos were going to be restocked? They look like perfect pants for the upcoming season, and I can't wait to get my hands on one.
Apologies if this question has already been asked.
They will you can pm leftofthedial to reserve one.
Are the Japanese khaki rivets on the site right now from the new construction, or the old?
old. the only new rivets currently are french blue / caramel duck / desert duck / navy / gunmetal
Does anyone have experience with the Cramerton cloth Rudys? I received mine this weekend, and they fit a lot baggier in the waist/seat/thigh than my wool Rudys do. Has anyone else had this problem? I saw someone who said they hot washed/dried theirs and that did the trick, but I don't know if I want to resort to that.
