There was a preorder back in February (I believe) where you could've selected high rise. Always the option for MTO to do both high rise and pleat or just the forward pleat.
The pleated Rota posted on IG are not high rise - they're exactly the same style as our pleated Rota trousers, but with no belt looks and buttoned side tabs (pretty but totally impractical)
In any case, I plan on offering pre-orders for spring, and you will be able to choose from 4 styles: regular rise w and w/o pleats, higher rise w or w/o pleats. Normal (usable) side tabs on the high-rise ones - not the buttoned ones
