Women adore it.

Would you like to share some pics? It's a bit hard to visualize how it looks when made up since the sample pics on the Harrisons site are so small.

What you are describing doesn't sound like a comfortably cut trouser

Depending on the tensile strength of the cloth, I would be concerned about the cloth tearing rather than the seam splitting.

Thanks; it's Dugdale's Cape Breeze mohair blend. My tailor just told me to be careful. I do request a slim fitting trouser, so I guess I should just accept the risk of tearing. Though I wouldn't be adverse to perhaps inserting a couple centimeter wide band of Lycra down the whole length of the inside leg seam? In matching color of course. Then I could climb stairs without fear.

On mohair I put strips of lining cut on the bias on both side of the seat seam to reinforce and share the stress on the seam.

You feel the snugness of this cloth as it has no give at all

Indeed, I almost hate the slim trousers of my mohair suit. I recently asked my tailor to cut me a pair in those same fabric but in a full cut with pleats...

Just picked up my completed Minnis 301 flannel DB yesterday. Thanks to everyone for their help in narrowing down the fabric.

Looks nice - big cuffs! You may want to think about slimming those sleeves in the next iteration.

Who was the maker?

Cheers. It's my local MBT here in Toronto.

Nice. That fabric - or its heavier cousin, the 0317 - is on my hit list for a DB suit.

Great to see a healthy sized turn up cuff :slayer:Wear in good health!

TRINI, looks very good. Maybe a tad too long and loose but that's just personal preference.

I like the fit of the jacket a lot. Given the texture and weight of the material, I like how it hangs in a more relaxed manner. It's likely the angle of the photo, but it appears that the pants weren't cut with the same fit in mind, however. They seem a bit slim to my eye and accentuate the "loose" jacket look that forex is referring to. Again, likely just the picture, but I'd prefer a slightly fuller pant to better compliment the drape and look of the material. My $0.02.
