    Loden wool, woven in Tirol for centuries, is known for its resistance to cold and wetness. Our project in collaboration with Epaulet introduces Alpine Loden, a modern 18oz fabric blend of 75% merino wool and 25% nylon, woven in Italy. It's lighter, more durable, wind-resistant, and more comfortable than traditional Loden fabric. Partnering with Rochester Tailored Clothing, we offer custom garments like sportcoats, suits, and overcoats, made to your specifications. Learn more about the Loden collection here.

Ok. Googling and found the intro to the Armoury sport chino video from 2020, so four years. I blame Covid years for the time distortion
I blame covid for all sorts of distortions, even on my waistline.

But yeah seems like I was mistaking it with the army chinos' launch which seemed to be much earlier.

Have had the sport chinos for 2 years and they've developed a pleasing fade all around which is more natural than a pre garment dyed chino. They were machined washed cold every time. The cotton gets also very soft and suede like where you can run your hand through and it changes the nap. Mark cho describes this as 'peached finish'

Would you be able to share a picture or two? Just bought a pair in navy a few months ago and it still has a sheen so I'd love to see the 'end' version of them

Can you speak on the shrinkage, if any? Should one size up to account for this?

I would advise to get a size up, wash once at least, maybe even twice before hemming. My first part shrunk a good amount in length after a wash or two.

With my most recent pair I got a size up, washed them, had them hemmed almost two inches too long and then washed them again and they're about perfect.

For about two hours last night, I was indeed a farmer…

Just picked up the brown cotton ice tea because the white was out of stock. stoked for it -- upon further reflection, the brown probably works with a wider part of my summer wardrobe (and most of my fall/winter).

any plans to restock or any way I could be notified if it is restocked?

I recently got a pair of Armoury trousers from Grailed that are labeled as being in the "Co" model. They're in a lovely wool flannel and have pleats and side tabs. Does anyone have any information about the Co model? I can't find anything online.

Curious on sizing for these. I'm a 50 in suits, 41 in dress shirts. I believe someone suggested a medium for those measurements but I'm curious to hear others experience. As with most stuff I'm sure both m and l would work for me but looking for additional input or even better fit pics!

I wear a 46 in ring and went with a medium. I kind of want an oversized, looser fit. I'll post some fit pics when it arrives.

I'm a size 50 jacket/39 shirt, and they recommended an L in store for what it's worth! (Did not buy, but will someday)

@1969 Go with a large

I tried both M and L, and liked the large much more. Have it in olive, wearing it today actually. I'm usually between M and L, too. I do prefer it loose though YMMV

Based on the comments here about the sport chinos shrinking, I guess it wouldn’t be advisable to have them hemmed before being shipped out for an online order?

It just occurred to me — "Co" is probably short for "custom," right?
