    Ordered a pair of Caramel Organic Duck Miner Chinos and they arrived in 2 days. Fantastic chinos and service!

    They are a straight cut. I've worn them for a few days and they seem to have loosened up, which is what I prefer.

    These are my measurements:
    Tagged 34

    waist: 17.5 in across
    rise: 10.75 in
    leg down 14 in from crotch 9.5 in across
    inseam: 33 in
    hem: 8.5

    The color is great and I think they will go well with indigo and chambray shirts. One of the reason I bought them was because of the cut; somewhat similar to an LVC 1947 501 - although the LVC has a higher rise and a slightly wider hem (9 inches), the leg is cut similar to the Left Field.

    Let me know if you want any more measurements. I can even take some pics over the weekend.

    Great chinos, great service, can't be beat.

    Hey PP I would go 33 and stretch them. Cone stretches a lot more then most Japanese denims and I have stretched up to 2" as needed from General wear on Cone denim. C

    just ordered the natural selvedge chinos after loving my indigo selvedge chinos. excited that i can probably soak these right off the bat and skip the stiffness as there's no reason to seek creases and fades with the white.

    very true, the starch kind of antiques them a bit from rinsing, cool effect don't hot wash it might bleed the pocketing a bit, cold wash is fine though. C

    Hey Kona you don't have to pre-rinse but if you want a tighter fit I just wash mine in the bathroom sink in cold water and hang dry and check the fit.
    -Stevent nice wingtips are they Cordovan? I just got a vintage pair of Florsheim Imperial Cordovan that look just like them. C
