Discussion in 'Streetwear and Denim' started by LA Guy, Apr 1, 2009.
Mike, will there be a re-stock of the Walt Linen navy trousers (or the navy windowpane version)?
Do you play WJ?
I assume you set this up so that the green and red of your shirt and Walts are echoed by the colors of the court, yes? Statement of the obvious?
Madras Rivets, please.
Anyone know of denim that has a similar cut to the Rivet chino (please don't say APC NS...)?
Hey Rob: I don't play because none of my friends play. I tried it a couple of times and l lost all the balls in 10 minutes or so because I kept hitting them over the fence, haha.
Frank: I took that shot before school. Yes, school on Sunday at 8AM. It's a convenient spot. The tennis courts are part of our community. I would try to look for other backdrops if I weren't pressed for time.
Not much of a denim person, but I like my APC New Cure and they fit like the Rivet Chinos.
Do you not like the jeans or do you disagree that the NS is the equivalent?
If you just don't like the brand, the Japan Blue "tight straight" model is a very similar cut (I wear the same size in both), but the material and construction is better (or much much better).
I was going to chime in w/ Dbear's comment on the Momotaro 701 fit. Thigh will be a bit tighter, but as per jeans vs. chinos that should be expected. Japan Blue also offers the 701 fit at a lower pricepoint (but still a very impressive product value-wise)
question for Dbear and El Argentino, do you guys mean this pair?
also mike are you guys going to do denim again? Selvedge denim in the Rivet Chino cut would be kind of sick
I was about to ask the same thing. I actually teach tennis in LA and I'm always looking for people to hit with. And don't worry. Most adults who are just picking up the sport have the same problem. If you ever do get into it though, it's a great sport to keep you active and in shape. The social aspect of it can be pretty fun as well.
Cool deal, thecool! Time is super busy for me at the moment. Should free up by winter. You're right, it's a very fun sport. I was surprised how much I was sweating. SF tennis tourney!!!

Here (Momotaro) or here (Japan Blue)
I wish I had someone to hit with. Used to play a lot in middle and early high school, but living on Staten island put a hamper into my tennis game. Playing soccer got me enough, "What are you gay?" comments...
I wore the polo out for the first time today. What do you guys think of the fit on me from the pics below? I'm wearing a size M and my chest measures 39".
I get a bit of a "batwing" effect when I raise my arms and there seems to be a bit of excess fabric around the shoulder area for me. But the torso fits the way I like it, and I don't think I'd want it tighter.
Spoiler: Epaulet Polo
