 Good to hear! I am seriously considering doing a project with them or other West Tex makers. What are your thoughts on the shell? Is it showing a lot of wrinkles/waves per standard dress shoes? I haven't ran across too many makers that work in shell for western boots, those look awesome.
  How are these holding up? Any break in issues?
For chinos and maybe tweed trousers, would jeans or dress pant measurements be more appropriate?   As others have mentioned, I used jeans measurements for dress pants and the results were disastrous...

 I suggest sending in your best fitting pair and have them base your pattern on that and adjust as needed moving forward. I have done both sending on measurements and replication, I won't do measurements again. There are just too many variables with pants. Hope this helps.
Well I returned my MccLeans last week. The leather difference was a surprise and I didn't really care for it enough to keep it. I think it will fit some niche in the rotation for a more "rough" or distressed look, but I already have that covered.    The leather is very think and feels of high quality would break in nice after a while.    Moving forward I picked up a replacement pair of original 1000 in rust form @Crane's I had a great experience and would definitely...
