Thanks for the suggestion and PM w. link, jrd. I'll look into it.
I agree. What have your experiences been like? Have you achieved a clean line all the way from the waistband to the leg opening?I have preferred "tapered" before, but as of late I actually prefer "old man" as long as I have a clean line with a nice silhouette. LOL @ the English comment 
They fit almost the same as those Zegna Milano trousers to be honest. I think the biggest problem with my fits emanates from the hip area. If this is adjusted I will be able to spot more clearly other problematic areas. As for which fabric to order, I think I will have a chat with Ashish at Luxire, show him the pictures and ask for his proposal for alterations. I'm fine with ordering the more expensive fabrics ($250) and ask him to leave much room for alterations and send...
HY USA fit. I have a pair of Lands End's chinos in size 32". Their hip width measurement is 42", so no help there unfortunately.
Thanks, Murl. I've tried Incotex, PT01, Pakeman, TM Lewin, HY and these are Zegna Milano fit to name a few. While I have tapered my trousers intentionally in the past, I'm planning on not to in the future. But that is not my problem. The elephant in the room (litterarly) is my butt. None of the makers named above have had enough room in the seat. Any suggestions?
So, here are some pictures of my trousers I wore today. [[SPOILER]] The measurements are as follows:Waist: Didn't measure, but 16,5" maximum if I'm not mistaken.Half hip measurement: 21"Hip front measurement: -Front rise: 10,5"Back rise: 17,375"Inseam: 30" (I take 30,5" + 1,75" cuff usually, but there isn't enough room in these)Thigh: 12,75"Knee: 9,25" (at least where I think the knee width is measured)Leg opening: 7,875" Here is what I want to change:Half hip measurement:...
They're pretty much immaculate given they're OTR. Yes, I'll elaborate on my trousers in a minute. Thanks for your input. Going to a department store trying trousers is not an option at the moment, I'm afraid. But I'll have it in mind. It's great, isn't it? I love the one forward pleat look. I just want to burn up all my pants every time I take a look at those pictures. Nice! They seem comfortable and the leg opening wide enough to fit a shoe under without the trousers...
 Thanks for the feedback. I'm aware of the inevitable scenario of the trousers getting caught on the shoes while walking. I just want to avoid it while still having trousers long and wide enough to avoid it as much as possible. As I said before, for now I tend to have a slightly slimmer silhouette and thus a shorter inseam to avoid it. I thought about measuring the width required to have the trousers fall where I'd like them to, thanks for comfirming that. I guess that...
I'm planning on ordering a pair of trousers from Luxire. But before I do, I need to understand a couple of things. Mu usual measurements are thigh width ~12,5" and leg opening ~8" (not sure about knee width, but would assume ~10,5" +/- 0,5"). While I've enjoyed it for some time, I've come to realise that in order to achieve a cleaner and proportionally appealing look, I need to increase those measurements so that the trouser legs hang freely from the waist (or shoulders as...
Thanks, Clags. Here comes the noob question: what's GNAT?
