    I do a forced savings from my pay to afford my addiction...and also B&S like mad to supplement it.

    Speaking of which, I'm offering my burgundy Cardigan in Small for $150 now...c'mon guys, daddy needs a(nother) new pair of Walts

    For the most part, I actually live very cheap. I've also sold a fair amount of stuff in that period so that's not really the whole story. But it's still definitely my largest single category of expense right now.

    Hey guys, I have a question about the epaulet "slim walt" trousers. I see they only come as a 34" inseam. Typically I wear a 29" length, does epaulet offer alterations when you purchase? If not how difficult would these pants be to alter? I don't really know of any tailors in my area so traditionally I've modified my pants myself, but those are pants that cost (at most) half as much as these, naturally I'm hesitant. I'm looking for a good slim fit dress pant that I can wear to work. My current favorites are Calvin Klein "body fit" dress pants in size 32x29 (I'm almost positive these were mislabeled as the waist clearly measures to 34") but these are a little tight in the crotch/thigh, don't come in many colors, and generally I know I can do better. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks very much.

    Threw my speckled chambray in the dryer for maybe 15 minutes on low heat, shrank perfectly. It now measures about the same as the listed size chart, whereas before it was a little larger.

    1. walts are the best pants ever and exactly what you're looking for.
    2. they are very easy to alter.

    If you haven't ha anything altered before it can be a bit intimidating. As for hemming pants, it's a very simple thing to do and most dry cleaners I know of offer this service. You just need to know how you want them and be firm when having them pinned for the alteration. Lots of people who work in these places think that pants that puddle at your feet is the right way to go. Know what you want and be firm.

    Thanks for the tip! I went ahead and bit the bullet and ordered a pair of their slim walt regiment twill trousers in cloud. I'm really hoping that they'll fit right (minus the length) out-of-the-box so to speak. I absolutely love the fact that these are made in the USA. Between discovering these and Allen Edmonds I'm stoked that it is possible to look good in American clothing. Really, really, hope these will work out.

    ^^^Love the fact that this stuff is made here.

    OK, question for you guys (and Mike & Matt): I grabbed the Blaze cotton twill. I freaking LOVE the color, but I'm looking for some ideas for what to pair it with it when the weather's not sweltering.

    Rob, those are dope! I think they're calling my name too. Any navy/blue/white-based shirt will look awesome. As well as burgundy (think about about a grapefruit). I personally think that lighter browns and forest green would look great. Throw on a navy blazer over pretty much any of these, and you're golden.

    I have the tangerine linen from last year which are even brighter and less matte-looking and these are the things I usually pair them with.
