    Not sure about those specifically, but I'd definitely recommend any of the Super 120s. I wear them all summer in Dallas. The linens are phenomenal too.

    Racing green canvas Walts bagging a little at the knees after a long day sitting at the office. Maybe a launder will tighten them back up a bit. I've got a pair of caramel Rivets and petrol Walts ready to go to the tailor - I hope he's open this weekend.

    Has anyone experienced pocket-flaring with their trousers?

    It means they need to be let out, they're too tight.

    We do a dark olive moss duck canvas - that actually just came back into stock yesterday.

    This is really great. Looks tough as hell too:

    Although we run quite a few shortwings, longwings, and Brixton boots with Alden, we don't typically do black - especially in cordovan. But I believe that Leather Soul runs something like that pretty frequently.


    Yes, both the Navy & Cocoa Herringbone Shetlands can be.

    And we'll have our main trouser delivery in about 2-3 weeks. Nearly everything there could have a matching jacket made on demand.


    Those are definitely on the heavier side. I'd also recommend either the Super 120's or the Wool-Cashmere dress pants (good god, that fabric is wonderful!) as a good starting point for a work trouser and a very wearable weight in Houston.


    Awesome - outfit looks great. Dig the cat too!

    And a cold wash should tighten the canvas pants right back up.


    Significant pocket flaring is usually the sign that trousers are too tight in the waist. A little bit is alright, especially on thinner wool trousers (like the Super 120s) as they tend to break in with wear. But a lot of flaring means you'll want to let them out or move up to the next size.

    Looks like my question got missed.

    Are you guys able to do the Rudy cut in the staple Grey Super 120s wool?

    As an aside - I have pocket flaring on my Rudy 120s in Navy, don't think it's the waist though - more of a big thigh issue. Never had a pair of trousers that didn't flair at the pockets.

    ^ might need to let the seat out. I've had some trousers in the past (not Epaulet), that were too tight in the butt, which caused a little bit of pocket flaring.

    I know this has been said a lot but epaulet gear is seriously awesome.

    Wore the speckled chambray with plum rivets today and the number of compliments i got on them is insane.

    I should have picked these up when I had the chance.
