Hi. I don't think they look too short. But... if you feel like they are too short, could they be a bit longer? I'd say yes. Most casual men's wear seems to trend towards a more cropped, close fit all around these days.

You could likely get a very nice look with a both trousers and jacket with a little more volume and length if you wanted to. Though I wouldn't say you have to change anything here. It's a good fit.

What are the brands you are wearing, if you don't mind saying?

"Volume" is a great way to describe it. I need to figure out the nice balance between fitted and volume, without being baggy. Sounds like the problem "drape" was trying to solve in tailored wear. I tend more traditional anyway, so not really drawn to the cropped look -- nice to know I'm accidentally on trend, though smile.gif

Barbour Ashby jacket, I think I'll try the Beaufort for a longer hem. Luxire trousers, next order will include allowance for shrinking. Jcrew shirt and sweater. Clarks shoes, saving up for some alden chukkas.

Thanks for the advice!

Very nice. I don't have any experience with Barbour, but I have a Filson along the lines of what you are wearing. Bought it a few years ago before they introduced their trimmer cut, so it's pretty traditional. It's long enough to cover a suite jacket (not that I have much call for that, but it was nice to know), and overall it's a pretty comfortable fit. Definitely not cut to be fitted. No convenient photos of it. I'll have to take one in it and post it.

And for a slightly fuller cut trouser, I really like the Rudy from Epaulet. The measurements are on their site, so you could compare that to what you are getting from Luxire to see if it might give you a little more volume. That's what I like about it. Sample fits (in which you can see I'm often not too worried about ironing things... smile.gif)

Actually, looking at the photos again, the trousers don't look too different from the lines of your fit. But I think that's the thing: making an incremental adjustment towards a fuller cut.

We drive an old Volvo wagon. That was the first car; the Alfa Milano was a second car that turned out to be no better than the Volvo and a lot more complicated to work on. We sold it to some vintage Alfa racers who have only shown up twice since they bought it.

We are currently building another Volvo wagon with a BMW M52 engine to rectify the only real shortcoming of the first car: Merely adequate power.
