    Wasn't sure if the grey would clash with navy/red combo

    Nice shoes. I was never a big Quoddy boat shoe guy, especially the leather chromexcel ones as I just thought it didn't fit with the shoe. These I could see buying however.

    I know this is the wrong thread and etc... But what sizing would people recommend on these if I wear 11 in Clarks DB. 11.5?

    Edit: Yea I am really digging these, about to order.

    Mike you uploaded the wrong picture on the stone gabardine. Just a FYI.

    Just purchased them though. I'm going to hold off on the seersucker though, for some reason I thought it was a blue seersucker and not grey : (

    Mike any new short sleeve shirts coming in soon?

    For the moment, we have a delivery of three gingham colors (red, black, navy) coming in about a month. I might put some more into work, as we've sold through our stock way faster than expected.

    Awesome - thanks!

    Thoughts on the new grey seersucker shorts pairing up with the navy suede Quoddys...

    Love that. Red Brick and Seersucker are a match made in heaven.

    Hey guys!

    Thanks for waiting - our cotton shorts are finally online! Check them out below. I'll get the Tropical Wool models online tomorrow. Here's the story:

    1. They run very true to size, and you can buy the same size that you take in the regular Walt or Rudy trousers. They're also well matched to the Rivet Chinos.

    2. Like the trousers, they have a split waistband and can be exactly tailored to your waist and seat.

    3. The leg is slim but not skinny. It will work for both Walt and Rudy customers, and won't be too tight on guys with muscular legs.

    4. The inseam is 9", which will hit above the knee on most guys. If you're taller than 6' 3", then they'll most likely fall to mid-thigh. These have a standard trouser hem, so you can easily make them shorter if you want.

    5. These are straight-up the best shorts that I've ever seen at anywhere near this price point. My workshop gave me a great cost on them. If you like the look of them, then you'll absolutely love the fit and the construction. It's leaps and bounds above any mall-brand product, and you'll wear them for many seasons to come. Real talk!

    Okay, here we go. Click through the links to see more images, fit pics, and measurements.

    Oh, and we don't have a red gingham long sleeve on the schedule, but I've got two others:

    1. Maroon Gingham longsleeve in lightweight cotton lawn. ETA early next week
    2. Gingham shortsleeves in Red, Black, and Navy. ETA about 4 weeks.

    .



    Hi Mike, a few weeks ago you mentioned a Maroon Gingham L/S. Is this the same shirt or a different shirt than the Grape Gingham Lawn shirt?

    Hey Mike! Just wanted to say my EP Red Chambray just came in today and it looks and fits fantastic. Contemplating whether I can afford to pick up the indigo one in XS before it sells out~

    Thanks dmash! Let me know how you like the fit on these. They shipped out today.

    Yes, for some reason I remembered the color as Maroon, but it's definitely more of a grape.

    Are there plans for shorts made from the same fabric as the rivet chinos?

    Unfortunately not for this year. I had originally planned that, but the Chino's proved really popular and our distributor sold through the fabric fast, so I had to use all of it to produce more full-length Chinos.

    That said, the Italian Gabardine that we used in our shorts is ridiculous. It's some of the nicest cotton twill that I've ever felt - so you'll definitely be happy with it if you dig the color.

    Just bought a pair of the madras shorts. I might get the seersucker one afterwards if I like the fit.

    Cool, the grape is great but if there was a maroon on the horizon I would wait for that. There you go Mike, how about a Maroon small gingham L/S shirt next?

    I'm really glad that you asked this question, as I've gotten a bunch of PM's about how the Rivet Chino compares to slim fit chinos from Brooks Brothers and J.Crew.

    The overall concept of this item was to make a great alternative to jeans. Something that a denim guy can wear when he's not wearing denim. As such, it's got a medium-low rise and a tapered slim-straight leg fit. The interior taping makes it a bit more rugged. I feel that it's something original that's not merely a traditional chino that's slimmed down. I think that you'll really dig the style. And it will naturally fit a bit below the waist, so you can take whatever size you typically wear. They run true.


    Thanks for the great answer, Mike! Seeing as I should get tts, when will you be getting the new batch? I just finished school and I'll probably get a summer job soon, so money for the chino's will be coming!!

    could someone post a picture of how the grape gingham lawn shirt looks when worn under natural light?

    Thanks so much - let me know what you think when they arrive!

    It's definitely on our radar for Fall. I'm looking at a dark mushroom brown too. I'm a gingham and longwing maniac though - it's a constant struggle not to order 100 colors in each.

    will there be any restocks for more sizes for the Mark McNairy tan bucks? size 9 or 9.5 in particular.

    Unfortunately no, these are all the tan bucks that we'll get for this year. I do have a white nubuck chukka going online next week though (totally different style, I know).

    Thanks for the great answer, Mike! Seeing as I should get tts, when will you be getting the new batch? I just finished school and I'll probably get a summer job soon, so money for the chino's will be coming!!

    Great, and yes, I'd wait for your size to get the best fit. We're fully restocking British Khaki and bringing in two special editions, so they'll be a lot to choose from in about 5-6 weeks.

    could someone post a picture of how the grape gingham lawn shirt looks when worn under natural light?

    Yup, here's both of the new shirts shot outside. This was the late afternoon, so there's some cinematic directional sunlight too:
