Yeah, I bought the green stripe to wear in the office and it was too hot, flippin' jungle in here even in the winter. Would rather have a thicker fabric for straight outerwear so I sold and bought this, quite happy with it, even moreso now that I know I'm twins with Ms Keaton

@uzairh Obfuscation station, this thread sometimes. Thankfully, the Marvielab banner has given me some insight. What's the store?

What are the artisanal pant options for something like BBS p11 but with medium rise?

Basically what are the best pants for movement, with average thigh and tapered/skinny legs for some stacking?

I guess Devoa comes to mind but there's so many cuts now I don't even know if they're really anatomical or not.

What does mid-rise mean to you?

 

At any rate, I'd say go buy some pants with a lowered crotch like the Snowman x Peir Wu types that you can just wear higher or lower as necessary.

I mean not ball crushing but not so low that when I run or make big steps/strides I feel resistance in the fabric. Still want silhouette to be slim, so not looking for the lowered crotch easy pant type.

The new LUC cut is good, more room in the thighs than top-stitch free

if you size they p11 right then they are a mid rise. Zam Barrett minimalist DNA fit with a mid rise, regular thigh and skinny knee to ankle. They're the most similar to p11s that I've seen. Older LUC had a similar fit for a 5 pocket denim style but recent fits I've tried are looser at the hem than i prefer. I'm usually looking for about a 6" hem that I have to wrestle over my foot.

How is the hem tho? Are they narrow again below the knee?

I'm in between sizes with LUC. I have some model of the fly yarn in sz 44 that I can just barely fit into. But I've also tried some suit pants which looked like utter shit on me, so LUC is very much in the "don't buy online" category for me. Also gotta see the fabrics in person anyways. 

 

Maybe I just need to buy a belt, not new pants... 

 

Still interested in hearing everyone's opinions though!

If you aren't down with LUC then consider TVA and SftM. TVA is severely underrated, but you can damn the latter's prices to a black corner of hell. Devoa slim pants are still an option too. It's difficult to navigate the mountain of pants they drop each season before they sell out if you don't know what you're specifically looking for though.

 

@wormwood why are your lab coat prices higher than the ISS? Wanna sell me one for a fraction of your asking cost? Much obliged. :)

@fistinyoface because it's the rule of life?

seriously, they oftenly goes underpriced. Especially wool and cashmere ones. layers retail pricing was quite objective.

speaking of... Let's take a closer look at these two naughty bastards!

Awesome Carpe leather blazer. Sometimes the leather coat/blazer pieces look a little too much, but this one is fantastic. Only seen it up a couple of times. He says it's horse, but I believe it's actually camel leather (anyone know?)

@wormwood, whatever the true value, I was just lamenting my inability to buy them. More pics are always appreciated. This thread needs a bit of a shot in the arm!

I haven't seen Chinorlz of SZ's work, Collateral Concepts, mentioned here. He's recently posted a new season and a suiting project. Definitely worth checking out. That boro jacket is simply brilliant.

Chinorlz is easily the best poster still on SZ. It's great to see him develop over the past years and refine his patterns and materials towards something genuinely unique. Easily the most ~~~artisanal~~~ homie posted here, whatever that means. The reindeer leather jacket reminds me of some of Altieri's Fattomano stuff, but you could never mistake it for a copy. Same with the blazers––you can tell the guy has checked out Harnden and LUC and others, but he keeps it his own. He knows his influences and knows to keep them at arms reach. Contrast: I saw some A1923 clothing recently and initially mistook it for MA+, then LUC, then CCP, then finally... I don't really care if expensive ~~~artisanal~~~ brands copy one another, but it's nice to see someone paying respects to the tradition while still doing something new.

 

And if anyone is interested in a piece of CC history, I have a version of the jut neck leather in a very nice Guidi calf that I'm looking to get rid of.
