Offset pockets are always more logical for RTW pants than on seam pockets, but even so, it looks a little tight. I would want to see that side seam going straight up from hem to waist without bowing out to the ass.

Interesting, this is good to know. For how thin I am my ass is slightly big (always has been). I took another photo and the offset side seem appears to be very slightly exaggerated in this picture, but is there.

I can. If you are between sizes, definitely order the bigger size. Otherwise you'll see that the pockets will flare like in the above pics. If anyone wants detailed measurements, I can post some later today evening.

The website photos make the trousers appear lighter than they are. The light great is actually a very nice shade and are perfect "office pants". The pics above are a very good representation of the color. I have been seriously considering ordering another pair of grey flannels.

I was very surprized to see that since J never mentioned it the email. The two HY trousers are amongst the best wool trousers I have. Extremely happy with them and am picking up 2 more pairs (or 3, if I get the light grey flannel) soon.

B, if he had gotten the bigger size it would not happen. I wear a sz 31, and I bought the 32 on J's advice, and they are just right. I need to take in the waist a little but apart from that the trousers fit really well. I am very particular that the pockets do not flare open, and my size 32s don't do that.

J, any plans for some pleated trousers later?

I had it in my notes, but it was an oversight in the rush to get them up on the HowardYount.com. It's on there now

The pants are fine in the waist, it's the ass that is getting in everyone's way. I usually wear 33 or 34 pants. This is good news for my desire to get a bespoke suit though

Generally speaking, for RTW...

1. If your ass tends toward the flat, fit the waist and have the seat taken in.

2. If, OTH, your ass tends toward the full, fit the seat and have the waist taken in.

Ze pants look pretty good except that the posted pair is too tight for dv3.

Single pleats are better for bigger-assed friends including me.

12.5" and 13" respectively. This, perhaps more than any other measurement, I find hard to get exact.

J, are you sure the EU48's measure 32.5 in the waist? I think they are most close to 32".
