    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Theyll be in the US store eventually for probably 60-70% of the HK price i bet. They just havent been delivered yet. They arent an Asia-exclusive item like some of the new Norfolk Sneakers

    Only one back pocket flap, no front pocket stitching, and supposedly slimmer fit. :(

    Can confirm, new chinos (olive Officers and British khaki Slim fit) no longer have a selvedge line. They are also missing the front pocket stitching and pocket text that describes the fabric. I compared to my pair of 2014 twill seldvege chinos, the fabric seem identical.

    In another story, ridge slim tag 32 back rise measured 14 inches, tagged 33 measured 15 inches. A pretty big jump in one tagged size!

    Tried to jump on a gray RRL work shirt that hit the sale section, wouldn't let me add to cart. Great prices, the sizing seems to be a little inconsistent between shirts though, which kinda sucks (neck too tight like previously mentioned, or really loose under armpits/side in general). I guess I need to go to NYC and buy in bulk

    Just because it doesn't have a colored selvedge line doesn't mean it isn't selvedge, I have several pairs of pants that are selvedge and have a matching color selvedge. Any pics of the seam?

    I just picked up a pair of the old selvedge officer's chinos in 32x34, planning to have them taken in an inch in the waist. My pair in 30x34 are great in the waist, post stretching, but damn slim in the thighs. I'll have to watch Ebay like a hawk to see if a pair in 31x34 ever pop up. I think that would be my ideal size...

    Good point and true, unfortunately I sent them back already due to sizing. Will post pics once the new ones come in.

    Anyone know if the selvedge Clydes pants have a similar fit as officers chinos?

    I don't know about the current Clyde's but the previous ones (brown duck, dark grey) all fit very similar to the Officer Chinos IMO.

    Huh, odd.


    Is it just that there's no selvedge ID (e.g., red line), or is it truly non-selvedge (overlock stitching)?


    I have the rigid indigo ones from a couple seasons ago, and I'd say they're a little more straight-legged and have more room in the seat relative to officer chinos of the same size. Sizing is the same, though.

    I have them..they're selvedge, they just don't have the ID line. and for those asking, I have the same size in my officer chino's and they fit the same in the waist and seat, and are just SLIGHTLY slimmer through the leg. I prefer the angled pockets on the slim fits, but do miss the stiching.

    Thanks for the reply guys, I really appreciate it. Will probably get the Brown Clyde as well then. I agree, the newer pants probably just don't have a selvedge line, the fabric is probably still selvedge. Fabric felt the same from last year. Will post pictures when the new sizes arrive.
