    I am looking forward to my next trip to NY, I plan on spending some time in the EP shop. I've not gotten a chance to try anything on, but I am really hoping the slim walt trousers work for me.

    In the meantime, I am thinking about ordering some belts. Anyone have any advice on how the cognac cowhide and/or the caramel calfskin would pair with ravello shell?

    I ask the same question - I wear w34 in J. Crew Urban Slim. Will for example the Walt Trouser Navy Flannel fit in size 33 (w34)?

    If anything order the same as your Jcrew pant or size up. i have found that most Jcrew pants run a little big whereas Epaulets are pretty TTS.

    I know nothing about epaulet, but a 34 tag size in urban slim should be 36.25" at the waist.

    That is the j.crew urban slim sizing chart. I wear a 32 urban slim and for the chinos I've ordered the chart was accurate.

    Maybe this information can help someone here answer your question more precisely, or if epaulet has a chart of their own even better.

    Also, be sure that these pants you're ordering have a similar rise if you're going to base your sizing on the urban slims.

    Hi guys, this is my first post....been perusing for the last couple of months and picked up all sorts of useful info. I found out about Epaulet early on and went to the Orchard street shop and bought some Rivet Canvas Chinos about a month ago..I love em! These are by far the best pair of pants of I've ever owned. I want to go back and get another pair and probably a moleskin pair as well soon.
    ........I have a question though about cleaning and care..What is the recommended way to clean and dry these pants? I was thinking just machine wash and air dry.. is that OK? How about for the moleskins, wash or dryclean?
    Thanks in advance!

    I wear a 32 in J Crew Urban Slim and 33 in their 484 fit. I take a 34 in Epaulet Rivets and Walts, though the Walts were a bit tight and I had to send them back : (

    The Rivets are so boss though, I immediately ordered a 2nd pair upon receiving the first!

    Hmm, I would have thought the 34 Rivet would fit tighter than the 34 Walt?

    I have no Walts, but am a 32 Rivet (could go a little smaller), 30 urban Slim, and 31 in the 484.

    Yeah I thought the same but Alden is really starting to get ridiculous with some of their wait times. The elusive Ravello Brixton just hit 25 months I believe since the order was first placed.

    However, they may be reordering the Cigar Brixton in standard sizes at some point, even if there is no pre-order for it. Epaulet still seems to get new styles and new stock of older styles on a semi-regular basis.

    Thanks, guys! I was definitely channeling this guy without even realising it! Bigger 'fro though.

    If I am in between two sizes (30 and 32) base on the Slim Walt measurements, should I buy the size 30 and then let the waist out or buy the 32 and have it taken in?
    Since I am average build and don't have muscle thighs and calf, I am leaning toward size 30 and let out. Would this be a good decision or there are other things I should consider as well?

    I would buy 32 and take it in. I don't have muscular thighs either and I usually wear a 31. I have found that my size 30 trousers, while fine in the waist, start to feel too tight in the thighs and don't look good to me. Those aren't Walts, though, so those with specific experience may be able to comment. The Walts that I have (in 31 and 32) fit me pretty well.

    My Salinger Double Monks are on their way! [​IMG] Delayed delivery due to the weather. [​IMG]

    I've heard there's sizing issues. If my foot measures exactly US 11.5 after I've been standing on it all day, will this fit? (I ordered a US 11.5) Unfortunately I'm new to 'good shoes' and I don't have many other shoes or lasts to compare the Inca to.

    Is there any timeline on when these (below) will be back in stock in 11.5? The Austerity Brogue is pretty kick-ass.

    Did not think I would see David Starsky today, but of course I'm glad I did.

    On to the contest:

    Entry 1, 1993: Fishing hat, leather necklace, tie dye. I wore this hat everywhere; I have no idea how women ever talked to me.

    2012: Pindot shirt and River Chinos at a dance recital.

    Entry 2, circa 2003: Eddie Bauer on an, ahem, portlier gentleman.

    [​IMG]

    2012: Shawl Cardigan from last year with gingham & moleskin.

    [​IMG]

    Entry 3, circa 2007: This is just embarrassing. Those are jorts.

    [​IMG]

    Tonight: Camel Hair & Japanese Woodblock. I am now reconsidering the pocket square.

    Thanks!! For some reasons, the Walt trousers don't come with size 31.

    Okay the transition from that Ralph Wiggum pic to the Shawl Cardigan guy CANNOT be the same person. Congrats man! If thats really you in both pics (im kidding, i know its you), bravo on your transition, both stylistically and health-wise. You've done a great service to your children and the general public (by trashbagging those JORTS!)

    Seriously, that entry has to be a winner.
