I have never ordered a second pair of trousers, and in 13 years of buying bespoke clothes, I am still waiting for my first pair of trousers to give out on me. Â I have a flannel suit that's getting close to 8 years old, and the trousers are beginning to get a little threadbare. But they are still wearable. Â Flannel is supposed to be the most delicate of the traditional cloths. Â I deliberately avoid the supers and crazy-soft-expensive fabrics, though.
Manton, you cought me. thinking of it, I actually have never had a bespoke pair of pants wear out, either. I have always ordered suits with 2 pair of pants, and rotated them, but thinking about it I do it because that is what I was told to do (more accuratly, my mother suggested that I look for suits that came with 2 pairs of pants in order to keep the suit longer, maybe 20 years ago).
