Well there were a lot of other good options presented. Always hard to choose.I'd say the cloth could stand up to being trousers but they wouldn't be comfortable. Plus the pattern is really for jacketing IMO.
It was presented as an option for preorder/GMTO but never got enough votes. I got it done by Steed MTM and received it about a month ago. It makes up really nicely. I won't be surprised if there's now enough GMTO interest.
