Sorry to hear that, I've always thought they were trim, too, altho the Stows are quite wide. What are your Grensons and Sargents? Pics??...

A neighborhood tailor might well be the most suitable person to do the job. However, be aware that your locally-made jeans will look different from the factory made ones, principally because they use different hardware. Much of the sewing on factory jeans is done with a...

Sadly true. I actually went into a Pringle shop at Christmas - I remember their socks were expensive, but excellent quality. Their priciest pair sported a nice, retro box, but the socks were made in China. Of course, we do have Cordings, most...

I like to think Roy kept one of the most flawed pieces of fabric for me...
They look like 47 - very nice. Edit: it says on the blog that they've never been washed - I don't really believe him, unless they've been dry cleaned. My 55 and 47 looked a very different colour after six months without a wash. Perhaps they've never been machine-washed?

I sometimes see double cuffs that look nice with chunkier boots; SIngle cuffing is a lot cleaner - a double cuff is too chunky, and they hang differently. But it's important to note that a big single cuff should hang short of your boots rather than sit on them. I was in the East End a couple weeks ago and saw a tall, Rasputin-style dude...
