Edit: I am aware that flat front is in vogue, but for a work/professional suit would a single pleat look dated?

First time poster but a long time snooper on the site.
I am trying to buy a pair of trousers for work but currently I am having to buy maybe 1 or 2 sizes up just to get the trousers to fit around my legs. Has anyone come across a brand that caters for men with big legs?
Its a pain having to tailor the trousers every time!
Happy Holidays everyone!
I was on Charles Thywritt yesterday looking at some of their causal sweaters.
I was thinking of getting a couple of their sweaters since the price looked tempting and at least off the bat they didn't look too shabby.
I was wondering if anybody could comment on CT's sweater quality?
As I can't find many reviews on them at all out there. Other then one saying "avoid the cashmere but everything else was fine."
Thank you again,
It's labeled as "Made in Italy" if that implies anything about it's quality? And it's in my price range($70-110)
J Press has similar sweaters to what CT is offering(and probably better quality) However, offerings like the J Press Shaggy Dog are way out of my price range. I can't even find any of Press's iconic offerings on Ebay except as XXXLLL's.
While BB and RL are more expensive then CT on average and typically come from the mysterious land of imported as well. Which I am starting to try to avoid.
At the low end, "made in Italy" doesn't mean much. Not exactly a better reputation for labor conditions than China, just high-end Italian manufacturing is very nice indeed, and that glamour rubs off on the lower end stuff.
I just bought something from Woolovers, who are frustratingly vague about where their stuff is made (Madagascar and Mauritius, it turns out), but very good for the price.
But yeah, cheap cashmere is not going to last nearly as well as lambswool or merino.
