It's about 6.7 inches on the size 30 waist (they ride more around the hips area though and actually measure about 32" i think) pair we made. it's enough of an opening so that the socks would be covered if you hem them to a half break, but they're neat and slim so they don't obscure your shoes. They're fashionable looking.
As for sizing, we will make a full chart with pertinent measurements, and we'll recommend that you measure yourself around the tops of the hips rather than at the actual waist, since these don't ride that high. They're medium rise, I think it's about 10" or so on the sample size. Apart from that, these should be really easy to get your size correct on, since everything will be there written on the chart, plus the elastic is forgiving. As long as you get the right waist size everyone should get a perfect fit.
As for the other design, it's also pretty much a slim fit tapered trouser I guess, but the leg won't be as extreme I think. They will be plain front and have conventional belt loops, etc, etc - normal trousers. The beltless are single pleated and a lot more fashion-forward.

If they look like what I think they will look like... sign me up!

BTW, are the chino's going to have a similar pattern? maybe without the pleating? Can't wait for pics...

chinos won't have pleats and won't be beltless. Different design, just conventional chinos with a nice fabric and the object dying (which we still need to experiment on but Mrs TOJ sent the selvedge chino fabric from Japan the other day and it hasn't arrived in Korea to work on just yet)

Trou sound great, the most important thing to me though will be the fabric. how thick are we talking? is this more of a suiting fabric like a tasmanian wool or is it something more substantial?

sounds awesome.. cant wait.... for those trousers... will it be alright for summer country?
post #15696 of 45029
Is there any way the beltless one can be flat front?

maybe, but not now. We might do those later. I actually don't really like flat front pants - I think they look boring and remind me of biz-caz bores. I know people shy away from pleats because they've sen triple-pleated Dockers and stuff and been scarred for life, but the single pleats on these TOJ pants give a little more room in the top block and look kind of artistic, people will comment on the pleat when they see it I think.

it's like a 3 season suit fabric weight. Gabardine texture, so not completely smooth, and no sheen.

In the future we may play around with different fabric weights as I come across more fabrics that meet my approval. The design is cool so it'd be a shame to just throw just any fabric at it. These are not custom, to save a lot of hassle and time.

Trousers sound really tempting, will probably pick up a pair in black.

What about the inseam length? 30", 32", 34"? and take some pictures please! :)

post #15702 of 45029
Seems like you've created my ideal trouser, right down to the elastic waist and single pleat. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Put me in for black and navy

And what other colors are you going to make for sure?

I'll buy 4 total to rotate through the week. (0)
post #15704 of 45029
Great, definitely going to pick up at least one pair.

MiJ or MiK? I guess I'm not buying a new pair of jeans after all
