I love mine as well. Wear it a lot during the long ass Canadian winter. Sometimes think about buying one in the size below, to have it be shorter an easier to layer with the short jackets I wear a lot.Aw man all the good stuff—the sweatshirt I wear once a week when it's cold enough, just such a crowdpleaser and so much more satisfying to wear than I ever thought a sweatshirt could be.
They didn't really shrink in the waist, but they're not giving any sign of streching out. The 45 model has a very straight leg, the leg opening is extremely wide at around 10.5 inches.What's different about the 45 model, less tapered? I am very glad I sized up on the chinos and hoping they don't shrink much in the waist after a wash.
That's kind of why I hemmed them, but to be truthful a different model would have worked better for me. I went with the 45 because the green tint in the khaki fabric tickled my fancy. In the end I realize that I chose the wrong model for me.I've just been cuffing mine a crazy amount due to the long inseam (I think I have to roll them like 6 or 7 times to get the right length), I like that it adds a lot of weight to the bottom so that they hang very straight but the cuff is so thick it might look a little silly. Apparently most WW2 soldiers got their military chinos tailored (forgot where I read that), but I probably wouldn't wear them unrolled anyway so likely won't touch them for now.
According to me it's the platonic ideal in term of Chambray shirts. It's the only one I wear anymore. I have chambrays by EG and Beams + that I just completely stopped wearing. I also have a TCB chambray shirt, but it's a western cut and the reason I don't wear it is because of sizing.How's the chambray? I was going back and forth on it but ended up getting a Studio D'Artisan one instead, which I love, but I can never have too many chambrays.
