ok wait i am a bit confused, actually. 52 for me is great all around, except the waist band is too big (by like, an inch or more). otherwise i dig how they fit in the hips, thigh, knee, etc.i wouldn't want the casual ones any bigger in any of those areas. if the casual-er ones fit bigger in all those areas, but are just tighter in the waistband, as long as there is room to let the waistband out in case they're too tight, sounds like maybe 50 is what i should get.... ?
LOL! good to know!
awesome, thank you.
but everywhere else the same? like thighs, knee and hem?
Do Rota's cotton-linen / casual pants (i.e. the ones that come hemmed) fit the same as their dress pants (i.e. those which come unhemmed)?
Anybody gotten the blue stripe linen-cotton? Planning to get it, but just curious if anyone else has real life experience.
LOL nope. It's not higher quality in those regards, but rather in how the pattern has been executed. I'd have never guessed different makers with the same patterns and made to the same quality could be so different (FW15 by Isaia compared to this season by SP). This is better. Tough to explain without seeing them both side by side.
Partenopea construction is awesome by the way. That may have been lost in my Formosa tirade last week. It really makes the cut and silhouette outstanding. Not that it wasn't before, but it really is something special. Hoping future collections by Michaelangelo, Isaia, or whoever, can match this.
Some of the reviews said it looks just like cheap cotton. I can see what they mean, but the fact that it is cotton linen and fits so well and has the awesome details I specified (the collar and cuff namely) outweighs that potential downside. For me, I think the biggest improvement they could make would be to use more contrasty threads in the Oxford weave (a darker more saturated blue thread with a stark white thread, more like their standard heavy Oxford fabric). That...
That is my initial experience with just two washes. I plan to buy another of the linen cotton blends and added a quarter inch in the neck and another half inch in the length. But I want to break this one in more before pulling the trigger to confirm the shrinkage.
