That is really nice. What is the book?
^ yup.
It's a little bit of a throw back to the Colin Hammick days with an undulating shape that starts out wide at the waste, tapers to the knee and then slightly flares out again as it approaches the ankle. It's like a bell bottom without a bell. It looks very different than what I think of as a typical Savile Row straight leg trouser. For me, it sits closer to the way my legs are actually shaped. I will try to snap some pics next time I put a pair on.
