    I got my gunmetal rivets tapered slightly from the knee down. worked perfectly for me. i just picked up my french blue's and caramels from the orchard st. store this weekend (thanks matt!!! great to meet you) and will certainly do the same. it turned a great chino that was slightly roomy into the perfect fit for me.

    On a related note, I've been skimming through the first pages of the thread, to see what I have missed - and it seems that the guys have been able to make people cry over their wallets almost from the get-go.
    Btw, huge props to Keith for pics of Korina V in this thread [​IMG]

    Maybe. My wife and I have no kids so urban living with all of the conveinents I mentioned would be a fit for me. You would get in return the great outdoors, free (but necessarily great) health care and a very nice size house and likely an acre or so of land for the same amount as your apartment.

    This yours? My first car that I got myself was a 1997 VW GTI in electric blue. I loved that car, and used to zip in and out of traffic on the Belt Parkway daily in it.

    Another outstanding photo, SVB. How long does it take you to set a shot like that up, and do you take it just for your tumblr and SF or do you have other reasons?

    Here are two photos of my one and only Rivet Chinos in khaki.

    Went with the 36 inch waist with the idea of washing and drying them to fit. I think the cut is nice overall. The hand on the fabric is soft and smooth. Should wear beautifully. I also need to take some photos of the two Caine sport coats I got, grape and green.

    I hope the bare feet don't offend. No shoes in the house. Which is increasingly a problem, given the number of shoes I buy.

    Yes, as far as I can tell without any before and after measurements. I suppose it may go with out sayng, but years of rather careless washing and drying of just about any piece of clothing tells me that there's usually a noticeable amount of shrinkage over time. Sometimes that works for me, and sometimes it doesn't.

    Sorry to continue the thread derailment, but a few months I purchased a 2009 MkV Rabbit ago for my teenager to drive to and from school. Right next to it on the dealer lot were a MkV R32 and GTI. My son for obvious reasons wanted the better performing car, specifically the R32, but I didn't want to pay more nor jack my insurance costs even higher. Kids put a real dent in the clothes and shoes budget.....

    It's definitely fully blue. Not quite as vibrant as the French Blue, but almost.
