    Hi! I'm new to Epaulet and considering purchasing a pair of light to medium gray wool trousers for spring/summer.


    I've been looking at the Walt Super 120's and HY's Four Season, Nailhead or Tropical Wool offerings … I'd be a new customer to HY as well. I'd like a trouser that would be pretty versatile … for work in Southern California, night in Vegas, walking around Paris or Madrid in June.

    Would the Super 120 be a good option or am I asking too much from one pair of trousers? I'd also be interested in anything that might be coming out in the next couple months that might be a better option.

    I'd appreciate any help I can get. Thanks so much!

    I have they Grey Super 120's. Bought them before they were put on the website about a year ago.
    I worse them to a Wall Street internship with absolutely sweltering heat and they kept relatively cool. I've also worn them this winter and they've kept me relatively warm. For the conditions you mentioned I think that they would be perfect. The fabric is pretty thin but in no way see through.

    You are right, of course. I got off topic and wrote about "dress shirts" in general. Here, yes, only the fabric is different.

    Were the results of the Before and After contest announced? Can someone please point me at the post if so?

    Are all of the cotton walts machine washable or just the duck and UK canvas ones? Do the twill walts have to be dry cleaned? Also, should I expect any shrinkage?

    in some of the pics, you can see a "dry clean only" tag, but the description says they are washable. Perhaps the tag is just standard for all of the walts.

    Thanks!

    I would like to get some Rivet Chinos but am wondering what size to get. I just ordered some pants from Outlier sized 30, with a 32 inch actual waistband. They fit pretty well. Maybe a bit big but better big than small.

    So I am between ordering a 30 and a 31. How do you all find the fit of the chinos?

    And any recommendations for color? Do you think the pumice color could be worn year-round? I am between that, the canvas khaki, and the brushed graphite.

    Thanks for your input!

    Wj4, nice look. I can't get over the variability of SoCal weather -- one day you can wear Harris tweed pants, the next oxford cotton Walts.

    Mike stated that to keep the price low, all jackets have to be cut identically, down to the patched elbows.

    Thanks, my friend.

    It's been in the high 70s to mid 80s Fahrenheit this week. I get cold easily. In all fairness, the concept of layering, let alone heavy tweed, is uncommon in Los Angeles, haha.

    I've found that the Rivet chinos fit pretty TTS in the waist (I wear a size 33 Rudy, which has a 34" waist, and I size up to 34 for Rivets and the waist fit is similar). So if you have some size 30 pants that have a true waist size of 32", you might need a size 32. I think a size 30 would be way too small for sure. Also double check the measurements on the website for each size and compare those to the pants you already own.

    This is a great look. Effortlessly casual.

    Do the linen trousers get wrinkled easily with wear? I tend to stick to wool trousers because they don't get too wrinkled, and steaming them usually gets them back to normal, but I'm hesitant to buy linen trousers if they're going to need to be ironed between each wear.

    Yes. They form waves and look distinct from wrinkles of say, cotton. I have 3 pairs and love them all.

    Frank: thanks!
