    Thanks for the critique. So a solid grey pant would have been the better route to go? I've always wondered what is ideal for length of a jacket as well, any tips? And would a similar color for the shoe work in a wing tip with a more rounded toe?

    i could very well be wrong, but are you confusing two terms here?

    rise is measured from the top of the waist and down, clap is talking about a higher waist, as in the waist extending up his torso further. additional rise would more likely just make the crotch lower, which clap does not need, not make the waist sit higher.


    maybe just semantics, idk.

    anyways, clap, i hate you. you have nice hair, and a great build. go hit yourself in the face with a rusty drainpipe.

    My good friend,

    I believe rise is determined by subtracting the length of the inseam from the length of the outseam (the distance from the top of the waistband to the bottom of the leg).

    So, assuming the trousers were pulled up properly and sized for his waist at the top of the trouser, there should be no drop-crotch effect.

    thanks for making me laugh tears, late at night stitch

    just check out the pics of medtech I've spoilered to get an idea what is meant with high rise. You've probably spend too much time on SWD if you actually assumed that I was considering drop crotch pants...

    Yes, solid gray. Jacket length is subjective, but at minimum, it should cover your ass completely. Even then, it can look too short. A more rounded toe in general would be preferable.

    Appreciated. These shoes were the first "nice" pair of shoes I invested in. I was determined to get non square toes because of this forum, yet still found a way to fail. Getting convinced by SA's is something I've been bad at in the past but am getting much better at it. Ah well, I shall invest in a nice brown pair with a more rounded toe, as I have a black pair that fits the bill.

    I'm going to have to take a look at the rest of my jackets to make sure they're not too short. Grr to learning.

    well, i just ordered a pait of MTM pants from edmorel @ panta, and based on how he had me measure, and the terms he used, you guys are wrong.

    quote

    "measure the rise for me (top of the waistband down to the seam just below the crotch). "

    EAT IT

    so, the more you add to the "rise," the more you add to the crotch. or alternatively, less rise, would have a snugger crotch. that all has nothing to do with how high up the waist of the pants goes up the torso.

    obviously, the measurement is from waist to crotch, either way. and no, this is not the same is subtracting the inseam fro the outseam, as the measurement to the seam below the crotch extends/curves inwards. whereas inseam/outseam are measured flat.

    i was just saying, that i believe the term "rise" refers to measuring downward, the more you add, the more you add in the crotch. as opposed to whatever the hell word a tailor would use to determine that you are adding length upwards, based on a predetermined measurement from crotch up. meaning, you decide the rise you want for optimal pen0r comfort, and then add upwards from there. semantics maybe, but it is an important distinction in measuring your pants.

    once again, EAT IT.

    *waiting for knowledgeable tailor to put me in my place and tell me im wrong*




    my pleasure. i knew what you meant, i was merely pontificating on frankies terminology.

    Stitch, rise/waist height = same thing. It's all the distance from the crotch seam to the waistband. Actually, in some MTM programs it's measured from the back waistband down around your junk and up to the front of the waistband, but that's just a technique difference.

    Where most folks go wrong is assuming that, hey, I wear my pants at the same height, so adding to the rise will just make them droopy in the crotch. That's backwards thinking - the crotch of the pants stays where it stays, and rise determines how high the waist comes up on you.

    Anyway, yeah, it's mostly semantics.

    a list.

    step 1. decide where you normal waist line is.

    step 2. measure downwards, and a bit inwards, to determine how much room you want in the crotch. aka, rise.

    step 3. measure from bottom of crotch/rise to hem, to determine how long you want your pant legs to be. inseam.

    step 4. optional, for those who want to be fancy, measure from your waist line up, to add additional pant length up your torso

    step 5. measure from top of waist band to hem, to determine outseam. a measurement that is not useful without determining the above steps first.
