    exactly. the material is lighter, similar to my khaki RRL selvedge chino. the roll/fold resembles that of a trouser and looks much better imo

    lol at wearing suede on canal street. Toxic brown fish sludge cannot be good for the suede.

    If I wear 10D in the Barrie last, would I likely wear 10D in the Van last?

    I actually bought this year's version of those denim selvedge officer's chinos b/c I liked the ones you sold me so much! I've been paranoid about wearing them w/ suede though....

    I do, but I go sockless (or super thin socks) in the Van last. It's atouch shorter and a touch more narrow. But works pretty well.

    Im sure it'll bleed but unlike raw denim that bleeds after just an hour, these didn't bleed at all after a 4 hour wear. I'm sure humidity plays a factor. Cali .. :)

    +1, I'm 8.5 in Barrie and Van. Van is a bit more snug but that works very well for e.g. the LHS

    My latest addition to my gunboat collection (Ravello from Alden of DC). I think these maybe my favorite ones!
