Here are some fit pics of the slim trousers. I am not too happy with how they came out but I am a terrible pants model because I am so skinny and short legged, and have bad posture. Anyhow, the basics on these pants: This sample pair are black super 170's wool. It's pretty nice. You can have this as standard, and there are some colors in the same 170's book. Otherwise, we have TONS of fabric from which you could choose, in wool, cotton, etc. Just talk to us. The slim pant is single-pleated, self-belted, with hidden elastic in the band. I based these on a favorite pair of trousers of mine, but we tweaked the pattern a bit to our liking, and re-engineered the self-belt hidden elastic detail to make it work. They gather slightly when hung up on a hanger, but when worn, you can't tell these are elastic banded pants, they look so clean and crisp. They're very comfortable to sit down in, which can be a sore point in side-tab pants with no elastic - if they fit you standing up, you will find traditional sidetab pants to be tight when sitting down - not the TOJ's though, they are immensely comfortable to sit around in. I don't want to delete the pleats nor the band on orders, those are the point of the pants. The block is also very slim as-is so people won't really need to ask for anything adjusted in this pattern. It has inseam as-is for tall people as well, and we'll leave them unhemmed or hem at request. I'll get measurements up on the sample pair later so you have an idea of how these measure. Keep in mind that I am really, really skinny, so pants that look looser on me are not actually that loose.
