    Yea it's just preferable not to have to do that, obviously. HY Made in USA fit me pretty well, but I have to get the waist taken in on those. The higher rise on these pants has me intrigued though...maybe I'll try on a pair next time I'm in NYC.

    Got it.

    WIll give HY a try as he offers a great pallet of colors/options.

    Yea, the rise is what I love about the Walts/Rudys (and they are very well made). They look awesome with no belt and a sc. Highly recommend the blue Chambray and natural linen. loafers or slippers, 2' cuffs, creases and no belt = boss.

    As far as I can tell the Rudy fit has to be pre-ordered using their MTO program; click on 'Mens Preorder Items' and you'll see all the fabrics you can order, and you can choose Walt or Rudy fit in any of them. The selection is a bit low at the moment but there was a lot more a week ago (I ordered a nice tweed window-pane and there were several nice Donegals), and I expect more options will come.

    Ah excellent, thank you. Do you know what the thigh measurement is on the Rudy? Significantly more ample?

    Hey OP, just go to joseph banks if this is too hard for you. Get a 3-for-1 special. Or go MTM. You are way overthinking this.

    Is it for consulting?

    I'm not sure..don't know if you mentioned it.

    Are you a consultant?

    Wait hold on this is for consulting? In that case none of these options are appropriate for you....

    Shoot, why didn't he say that in the first place? OP, if you're going to be a consultant, they all wear Joseph A. Banks slacks because there is a rule against dressing nicer than the clients. In fact, I think this is in the dress code/handbook materials they give to new hires. You really should have mentioned this earlier than the fourth page of the thread. We're very busy people here.
