Pant lining

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I got fitted for trousers and the tailor asked if I wanted the lining all the way down the leg. Not knowing, I sadi yes. So, my questions is: Do you all prefer your trousers fully lined or half lined?

half lined only...full lining is too lose if not sewn into hem...too tight and affects drape when sewn in hem.

traditionally full lined (drop in lining) is done for womens pants.

Agreed. 99% of RTW wool trousers are lined to the knee.

Me too, half lined is OK

Half-lined, almost always. Unless, of course, I have wool pants made with a very trim cuff/taper. Then I want the smooth lining all the way down, so the pants can still drape properly. (Otherwise, they get hung up on my socks.)

White or cream colored pants may need full lining; otherwise half-lined only.

Bemberg lining is cold in the winter and hot in the summer.

Half lining, is what seems to work best. I think maybe a full lining, interrupts the flow of the fabric's drape.

I've only got pants that are half lined, and of course Oxxford as a rule doesn't line.

My only pair of fully lined trousers are part of an Agnes B suit (bought many many years ago) and sometimes my toes catch at the bottom part of the lining which is quite annoying. It does feel warmer than other trousers, but it could just be my imagination.

So they said that the order states half lined below the knee. Is that too low? should I go with half lined to the mid thigh?

Actually, I think below the knee might have some advantages. They'll be less likely to "catch" on your knees as you sit...

A strange thought occurred to me the other day: given the fact that rayon is less soil-resistant than wool, and given that most pants are lined with it or synethic fabric, why don't we dispense with lining and instead wear knee-length boxer-briefs? (Perhaps even attached to the trousers in some fashion, cf Prince Albert. )

Unlined for me as well.

Unlined unless the cloth can be seen through when it's backlit.
