Field's, Geoffrey Lewis, and Highcliffe Clothiers will all make you trousers. All do very nice work. I use a tailoring shop in McLean called Roland's for my alterations. They also do MTM suits, SCs, and slacks. Have not purchased, so not sure of price or quality.

I like Hartmann for durability and ingenuity in creating space, but it's no value. To be honest, I reach for my American Tourister travel bag just as often as my Hartmann if I am not traveling with a client. I bought the bag at Target (or Wal Mart, can't remember) in 1996.
