    Is that the gun check that ran out at the store GS? Was it the tan or brown one. I remember it looking great. Adam told me you grabbed a pair (there was only one left)
    Yea it went really fast, I dont think it was online for more than a month
    Those new house brand knits are pretty damn cool as well.
    cant wait to see those IRL, someone who did see them instore said they are really soft and good quality knits (made by Aertex), albeit it's a blend with acrylic but that isnt a dealbreaker for me. I like the solid navy one with light blue trim, the other one I have too similar of already
    Thanks for the very informative reply. Another quick question though, even though you sized up, did it still fit your waist just right? I just want to know if I have to get the waist taken in as well.
    Waist is a *tad* larger than "just right", but nothing where I ever felt I've needed to have it tailored and brought in. The other caveat for me is that I have been going full on boots/braces with the staprest so waist sag hasnt ever been an issue. But it sounds like the 32 will be a good fit on you by what you've written so far

    Thanks, I wish they still had the khaki in my size.
    Now to decide between navy, brown and black.

    one thing about the blue is it looks like "service worker" shade of blue, not that there's anything wrong with that [​IMG]

    the khaki color is my fave, with black next. Don't like the brown color myself.

    imo, it's a bit darker than that. those are pretty blue, in your pics

    I think they're a purple-cast shade of navy, almost the same as Dickies navy

    **Kelvin's pic is pretty accurate, keep in mind his photo is outdoors which will give off a different color than if taken indoors where it will look darker

    Damn, I was hoping it would be darker for a more dressy/business occasions. Their pics are really deceiving, it looked real dark in the pics.

    Any word when they will re-stock the khaki color or it they are planning on releasing a solid charcoal or different shades or grey?

    So they are darker? Or when Kelvin said bluer it meant darker shade of blue? It does look like a deeper (somewhat darker) blue in your pics Kelvin.

    Also, their inseams are 32" right? Is it a true 32" or did you guys just get yours hemmed? Because from your pics GS and Kelvins pic, they seem real short.

    you should shoot them an e-mail they are pretty good (2-3 days I think)

    And i haven't heard about any other shades of grey, just these checks. Hopefully the new solid shirts are coming in

    GS, do you think these will sell out pretty quickly? I want to wait and order stuff all at once, but wouldn't want to miss out on the gun club.

    ** I've modeled my pant length after GS, so we both have really short inseams.

    they are darker than that. the JtG site photos are fairly accurate when it comes to that color

    the khakis are always first to sell out and they do restock, not sure when. afaik they dont have plans to do any solid colors other than what they have now. I had asked about burgundy before, and just ended up getting the ones by Relco (Warrior) which actually aint that bad for about 20 queen's notes

    inseam is 32 exactly which is fairly long considering these should have no break.

    GS, do you think these will sell out pretty quickly? I want to wait and order stuff all at once, but wouldn't want to miss out on the gun club.

    dont know, the last time they had the check fabric it sold fast but with a few options at once, these might last a bit longer.

    Is this the Warrior Clothing you are talking about?
    https://ssl-account.com/warriorcloth...shop/index.php

    And are their sizing similar to JTG? They have a black and navy pair in size 28 on sale for 15 pounds each, if they fit small though I doubt I'll have any chance of fitting into them.

    ^^ yes

    I don't have experience with a wide range of their trousers, as there are differing styles which I assume fit a bit differently from each other, but I've found the waist is exactly as tagged with no vanity sizing, but in proportion to JtG, the hips/thighs are wider.

    so JtG i get size 34 and it fits perfect everywhere other than hemming

    with Warrior I got size 32 which is same as JtG 34 in hips/thigh/leg, but the waist is a tad tight so I just have it opened up at the tailors and it fits good afterward

    sooooo....if you go with Warrior and get size 32, the waist will be ok probably but the lower block might be baggy if you like it more streamlined/fitted. If you got size 30, you might need to have the waist enlarged depending on what you actually measure around that area, but I bet the lower block would fit better with a 30. btw, if JtG size 32 seems like your closest size, I would go with Warrior 30, not 28

    Oh man, I am all confused now. [​IMG] [​IMG]
    I think I'll stick to JTG for now. I'll give the navy trousers a try, along with the black and white gingham.
    Thanks for all the help GS and Kelvin, much appreciate!!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    ^^ if JtG works for you, then go one size down with Warrior (so 32 JtG would be 30 Warrior)

    problem with warrior is if you have a question they arent the best at answering it, whereas JtG always answer within a day.
