They're typically mailed in card form unless the customer contacts us to request it electronically - in which case we can send a PDF certificate to either the recipient or the customer who placed the order

Yes the Eidos Sal trousers are our highest rise trousers in store

post #28264 of 39271

I like trousers with a high rise, preferably 13" to 14" so I might've given the Eidos Sal model a try but I need about a 39" to 40" waist.

 

Does Eidos ever make size 56?

 

edit: I realize the Sal model is slightly lower than 13" rise. Still might've tried it though.

Could it be how they are measured? My Epaulet walt trousers seems shorter in rise by the picture of the Eidos but the measurements say the Epaulet has a higher rise. I doubt that though.

We show how we measure in our videos.  We measure front rise from top of waistband to crotch seam.  It is not, for example, a measure all around that is divided by two.   I'd be shocked that anyone would feel that the rise on Sal is too short.  It's very high

Sal is high rise without doubt. I'd say people could easily wear them above your belly button, if they choose too. They sit right below that for me.

Thank You, Gentlemen!  I appreciate the input.

 

I wanted to mention that I have trousers from the same maker where the rise measures differently by an inch. However, they can both be worn comfortably exactly at my waist, because the cut is slightly different.

Realizing rise length is relative, when you guys say "high," is this in relation to the current trend of low rise pants (in the 8.5" - 9.5" range), with anything above that "high"? I guess I tend to equate high rise to those you wear with braces and can really hike up to your belly button and still have decent amount of crotch clearance. I find even a 11.5" front rise (while I can get close around my belly button, also starts to give some nut hugging action, particularly when sitting) to be more of a medium rise. Around 13" is when I consider that "high" (like Epaulet's new Gable pant). Wondering if it's similar to the way you guys see it.

I consider 13" front rise and above high, and wear my pants with braces most of the time.  I consistently had trouble with pants fitting properly until I went with that rise measurement and braces.  

 

I agree with you that even with a 11.5" rise it's possible to get the waistband up to my bellybutton, but it's like riding a wire fence down there.  

 

The measurements I'm discussing have been taken the same way as in the video posted by Greg and available on the NMWA site.  I remember watching that and being so relieved they had that information available.

How can you tell when a rise is too high?  At a certain point, there's nothing for the pant's waist to grab on to, right?  So you'll just be left with a drop crotch unless you have suspenders.

I think it depends how you want particular pants to fit and the look you're going for. I'm a huge fan of side tabs and much prefer them to wearing belts. Slowly I'm replacing my belted odd trousers with trousers with side tabs.

Last call - all pre-orders going to Naples today

I spend a lot of hours going through hundreds of swatches to narrow down to great cloths that will make up really well.

Received my correct size in the Norwegian Rain Moscow, and just need to say it is one of the most balling things I've gotten from NMWA. And props to Greg and Kyle for the fantastic customer service as usual. They've always been so accommodating and responsive. Can't wait to wear that coat.
