    hah, that's what I just thought. Do you get similar results with other pastels? I guess it happens to people having saturated skin tones

    I'm a size 31 in BB Milano chinos. They fit fine on my waist but I am looking for something more slim and tapered in the legs. Would you recommend buying 31 in your rivet chinos?

    I am thinking that the Caramel Duck Rivets that the UPS man dropped off are my favoriet purchase ever from Ep. Ok, 2nd favorite after the Cigar Indys last year, with which i'm pairing them today. Yeah, so with the new fit I had to go up to a 36 (as there is no 35) and now feel like a fat ass amongst you young bucks in your 30 waists, but I'm really loving the fit.

    Maybe its my extra fury legs, but I don't find the fabric uncomfy at all, at first wear.

    In my experience, the waist of the BB Milano is on par with the Epaulet waist. In fact, the Milano may even be half an inch smaller. One option is to buy the Epaulet Rivet in 30 and, if need be, let out the waist a bit.

    The best thing to do is to measure your Milanos and compare those with the measurements for the Rivets listed on Epaulet's website.

    the 10oz french blue is the "new" fit and the 7oz french blue (and everything released afterwards) is the "new new" fit. basically, it seems like the "new new" fit has "an extra 0.5" in the waist and a little extra throughout the seat". i don't have any "new new" chinos yet, but i have the 10oz french blues and caramel ducks and they are a little slimmer at the waist compared to the original rivet fit (w/o the curved waistband). i kept the same size throughout and i expect the "new new" fit to be spot on.

    Thanks for all the help about stretching.

    Would i be better letting the waist out a bit or just ordering 33's and leaving myself some wiggle room? I know i can return the pants for store credit and just order them when they do a restock. Or i might just swap them for the wine's. That is one fine color.

    I have a question for all the rivet chinos guys out there. I have lost a bit of weight and do not know my true pants size anymore. I am between a 30 and 32 in most brands and am 5'10'' and 150 lbs. Any sizing advice guys?

    Tough to say. I will say that I usually wear a 33 in most pants and the 33 rivets I got was snug in the waist. So I will have them let out a bit. I just ordered a 34 of the grey oxford cloth so I hope that works out better.

    Using a cloth tape measure, measure your waist size where you'd like the top of your chinos to sit (usually about 2" below the navel). Compare that with the measurements listed on the Epaulet site.

    Why do only the red and orangish colors show for 7oz? Don't see anything in preorder section either. When do the rest pop up? Thanks guys, extra .5" sounds perfect for me :)

    I recently lost some weight too. 5'7" and 150 lbs. I'm wearing a 31 in the chinos and a 30 in the walts. The walts are a little tight, but you can split the waistband just a bit to make it more comfortable.

    I'm just about the same dimensions and wear the same sizes in both.
