I have quite a few pairs of Cordings trousers (eight?). All
back pockets, some with a button on each side, some with a button on one side only, some with no button (jeans and moleskins, I think).

In terms of cuts, they all seem to fit me (I have turnups on all my trousers, except jeans, and tend to prefer them on the short side but the length of course is up to you). Moleskins, I am pretty sure, would be warmer than needlecords, perhaps lighter (less warm) than the cords.
I find all of their trousers to be well made, from substantial, long-wearing, cloths. I have no commercial interest in the company.
Hope this helps.
