I say this because I've considered buying them but that hem issue is making me rethink it.

the hem on my small measures 6.25'' and i wear a 42 in gats. they do taper aggressively but nothing that i struggle with.
great pants, kop away!

The fit was fine for me, but I wasn't fan of the fabric on them.

The sack jacket has no darts so it just sort of hangs in a straight line from the shoulders. Usually paired with stovepipe pants.

hmmm maybe this is why i find trousers to be more comfortable than jeans (0)

sorry for not using multi quote!!

yeah, for a f/w pant i thought it was pretty light (cotton poplin). it would be interesting to feel the fabric on the ss cotton poplin pants and compare them...

I was driving back to work from lunch and saw a truck next to me with a bumper sticker that read, "Americans don't eat horses!" I immediately looked down to my feet and thought we may not eat them, but we do love to wear them!



(side note - I am an American and I have ate horse on occasion, at a Belgian bar, and I could take it or leave it)

Finally got to see this in person today (or one of the several that exist I suppose). Say what you will about Hirst, but he's an undeniably good entertainer and entrepreneur.

that Hirst: not much of an artist, but he's a helluva businessman!

It should also be noted that the English and the Italian (and specifically, Neapolitan) jackets are very different. A lot of the traditional English suits (on the Row for example). are built not unlike armor. My favorite is Huntsman, and those jackets have very swelled chests, waist compression, and built up shoulders. The Neapolitan suit is supposed to feel like a second skin, like a nice fitting shirt. I admire the way it looks, but it's not for me.

Maybe it also has to do with lifestyle and psychological outlook. My clothing is like armor, and I like it heavy and tough - leathers that can stand up on their own, heavy jeans, sneakers or boots. Tough jerseys and fleece. The one sports jacket I regularly wear is made by my friend Sidney, and it's made out of 21 ounce cavalry twill, and is highly structured. The only non-denim pants I wear are from Cloak, 2004, and they are wide leg, heavy twill, with hardware.
