Yes, I find the same thing, just give it a little push up every once in a while...{adjusts orange HC knit tie}...better if it does not happen but no big deal really.

And for my next HC order I thinking of getting some Christmas presents - including a black knit tie....great sartorial minds think alike or is this just another example of Henry Carter outstanding service?
Definitely this!

I don't tend to have too many problems with them, a tight knot always helps though.

True, and you don't want to pull them too tight.  I find a double four-in-hand is the answer, both stylistically, and because the extra loop around the knot holds it in place better.

Hey Jason,

 

Do you have any more information about your upcoming trouser line?  Style of pleats, split waistband, quality of wool, height of the rise, etc.?  The rise being not too long, enough room in the fork and having wide enough legs are the most important to me.

 

Thanks,
Peter.

Hi Peter,

At the moment no, it's really a next season release now and I still need to get another round of re-sampling with some pattern changes done and right now I'm focused on this season. As a general guideline though, the finish will be something along the lines of a mid-high rise (higher than Howard Yount if you are familiar with them), room in the thighs without being baggy and tapering down to about an 8.25inch opening at the bottom (for a 32). Not skinny, not baggy. Fabrics are all from Zignone and are fantastic, one of the bigger but not often spoken about mills in Italy. Split wasitbands yes and I'm still uming and arring about the pleats. I like the pleats but the flat front samples I have fit me better, but it's of course not what about fits me!

Hope that helps for now.

We will have the remainder of this season turn up hopefully wed this week (knit ties and all the cotton/linen/mogador blends)

Ta
Jason

Thanks for the information.  

 

One other quick question if I may, how much higher do you think the rise will be than the HY trousers?  He lists them as about 10.25 inch on a 32/24.

 

Cheers.

No worries I'll measure the samples against my HY's tonight for you.

G'day Peter,

I measured the rise last night, the samples are an 11.75 in front rise on the flat front compared to my HY American Cuts at 10.75 in the same size. Hope that helps.

Regards,
Jason

Love a high rise on trousers. Looking forward to trying these out and seeing the sizing works for me....hopefully there is a good returns policy...trousers are the one thing I have little luck buying online (HY did not work out for me...despite measurements). Henry Carter trousers sound better and better with each detail.

Out of interest, what are you going with on your back rise?

Hmm will have to check that, it's consistent with the front rise though.
