    Trousers importance are often somewhat neglected, not only buy the wearers, but also by tailors who seem to concentrate their interest and efforts on the jackets. So lets find out who has the best fitting summer linen trousers

    No jackets, no ventilated shoes, socks are optional. OBS Front and back shots compulsory

    Entry closes at midnight EST on Friday. Poll closes on Monday at noon EST. Multiple votes will be allowed. I don't care when the fit was worn.

    Finally, I highly encourage a full body shot as well as detail shot . Let's go. :bigstar:

    My linen pents were recently mistakenly run through the dryer, and now are linen capri pents. So I'm out :(

    Love the idea though!

    Great idea. I'm in the process of replacing my trousers with MTM so probably don't have much of a shot in this one, but what the hell...

    Oh. My linens are very loose fitting on purpose, so I don't think I qualify... they draped beautifully when new, but now after washing and pressing they are not the same and I relegated them to casual wear...

    As we're facing constant temperatures of 0˚C here, at Rio Grande do Sul, I'm not able to participate, but I'll leave two old photographs as a notion of how I would participate of this particular challenge if I could.

    Are blends acceptable? I have some linen/cotton, and linen/wool blends. No 100 percenters though.

    I refer you the text of the Challenge: "I don't care when the fit was worn." - yes you can participate, so by all means do so, notwithstanding geographical or climatic circumstances !! :bigstar:

    I will accept blends if linen constitutes the major part, and leave it up to your conscience to adhere to this ruling! :bigstar:

    Please remember : "Front and back shots compulsory" - in order for us to evaluate the true fit! - I might make exceptions to the rule in the case of the reasons mentioned above, but this is the main guideline. :bigstar:

    Thank you, I'd like to participate, but my main concern was the compulsory front and back photographs, because I don't have any back photographs and, as I said, there no possible way for me to don linen trousers in this weather.

    Victor, the fit on those white pents is fantastic.

    Thank you, I'll pass on the complements to my tailor. They're the result of a project, incorporating the Ghurka waistband model posted by Ambrosi on his blog.
    Btw, the tan ones fits the same, the leg position changed how they photograph.
