noting range of sizes diminished on the alden michigan makeup as well — swift sellout out in larger sizes or never run in the first place?

So I saw Mike posted last week the pants had arrived and I decided to stop by the store on Saturday.  They were literally taking them out of the shipping boxes when I walked into the store.  The pants are seriously BOSS.  If you're into the style I think you will be very pleased with how they came out.  If you're not into the style I think these pants will change your mind.  The details, styling, and cut are pretty much perfect.  I'm sure mike will elaborate more but I think you'll like them.  I'm usually 34/35 in epaulet trousers and sized up to 36 due to the high rise.  Fit is flawless.  I imagine they'll come online some time this week.

, are the wool/cashmere/mink trousers not being offered in size 28 or have they already sold out? Is the only way to get a size 28 for trousers through MTO?

I've asked this question before.
Mto Is the only option.
No love for the lanky guys

Aw, darn, that's too bad. Although, I guess that's a good thing for my wallet right now :p

The couro cromo pair in particular took a bit of time to break in.

i was afraid that it was a sizing issue. I do have the couro cromo pair and i hope that it just softens over time. It still feels stiff obviously.

There was word few weeks ago about testing a new fit for trousers with a MUCH higher rise (which I would love). Is this going to go into production? Looking back at some old photos of my parents from the 1970s and 1980s I realize how much better high rise trousers look. Would prefer with no pleats.

These are the single pleat trousers they are talking about in the couple of posts above here. So it sounds we should be able to buy soon. nod[1].gif

for those of us that have a natural waist that is larger than our trouser waist, I am concerned on sizing. @Epaulet

Probably best to size up.

I am just concerned how pleated pants would look on me as I am slim especially through the thighs and legs. I have never worn pleated pants before.

@sartoria vacua we usually carry Van last styles up to 11.5, and we'll just get 2 units in that size.

@theh00d haha, we've got plenty of love for the lanky guys - believe me!

 

We just arrived at our stock range by trial and error. Some of you guys one here might remember that 28's and 29's were a regular part of our stock lineup. Problem was: they were really difficult to sell. I'm not sure why as we do a decent amount of MTO and GMTO work in that size, but it was reliably the least popular size. That's the only reason why we don't actively make it. Same thing for size 13 shoes, size 44 sportcoats, etc.

@mr.invincible it should soften pretty quickly - couro cromo is a thick steerhide but the oil makes it break in nicely. It's just like chromexcel in that way. You can always bend and flex the sneaker a bunch of times with your hands - a lot of guys do that with Aldens.

Hey guys!

The new trouser has indeed arrived - it's called the "Gable." The shape is really rad - and big thanks to @NewYawker for being the first guy to pick them up! 

 

You'll see all of the details shortly, but it is a 13" front rise, single pleat, tapered style. There's nothing like it on the market - at least as OTR - and it's awesome. I wore my pair last night. 

 

They'll be a disclaimer on the site, but there's something important to know. There's a good chance that you'll need to tailor the waistband. This kind of style is typically done as MTM only because it's hard to fit on a big range of guys. It very much depends upon your your waist, your stomach, and how you like things to fit. We planned for this and included nearly 3" of extra fabric in the seam allowance. I let mine out by a full inch. Check this out - new pant on the left, tailored pant on the right. Still lots of fabric left even after the alteration. 

 

I've got big legs and take the Rudy fit. So I'd advise getting your typical size and simply letting out the waistband as needed. And try wearing the pants for an hour before you do anything regardless. I've never owned anything like this, so it felt strange at first. I probably should have gone for a half inch in letting it out. After you wear it a bit you'll know.

I like it.
post #48883 of 57857
Those look so freakin cool Mike! I'm still not sure I could pull them off, but I do like the uniqueness of them. Hoping to see some other fit pics of others in the coming weeks/months before taking a chance on them.

Looking forward to these. When will they be available for sale on the site? So if I am a W33 in the Walt, I'd want a W33 in this also, and simply have some work done on the waistband?

@gnatty8 exactly. The part that hits your hips is actually almost the same measurement as a Walt. 

 

So a Walt 33 measures about 34" at the waistband. A Gable 33 measures 33" at the very top, but 34" at the same spot where the Walt would end. It just depends on whether that taper is a good match to your body. The thighs have more room than the Walt and work just fine for a Rudy customer. Everything is nicely balanced: the pleats are functional but subtle and the leg is larger than our usual cuts but still trimmer than nearly any other single-pleat out there. 

 

A Gable OTR is likely to work for someone built like David (our usual trouser fit model, and the guy who wears the Gable in the upcoming pics) or @tricky 

 

If you're built like me or Dylan (@EP Dylan), then you'll most likely need to let the waist out by about 3/4" to 1 inch. The big allowance of fabric means that your tailor can really shape this to you. It's definitely an expense to factor in, but you should end up with the best-fitting trousers that you've ever owned. 

 

If you've never worn braces before (like me) then be prepared: you're going to want them within 24 hours of taking delivery on this. It's such a freaking cool and old-school style that it's practically screaming for them. I already have a set on order for delivery on Friday.
