    Huh... I'm intrigued and I'm pretty sure it's not just the alcohol talking. What features are you envisioning for it?

    Kinda came flashing across my mind just now, but where the artishard rider is the MDR with the rounded hem of the 2010 DR, no buckles - the yin would be the 2010 DR, no buckles, MDR straight banded hem, MDR convertible cuffs. Somebody should photoshop this, I elect artishard. :eek:

    artishard rider - 3-zip front
    new hybridized model - 4-zip front

    That does sound pretty damn cool. I dig the scalloped hem of the 2010 though. Jackets with that cut just ooze sexiness to me. I have a MMM bomber with it and it's the shit.

    Photoshopped version. Now that I look at it.... it's like 55/45 2010 to artishard instead of the MDR.

    so if i've read the past couple pages correctly, you're also coming out with a looser-fitting, non pleated version of these trousers at a later, unannounced date? is that right?

    correct. 'looser fitting' would be a bit of a stretch, they will still be slim. I don't really feel like I need to go too big with these things, there are plenty of trousers out there with 'normal' fits - i feel like that's a genre well-addressed.

    honestly, the measurements for the slimmer one you have posted sounds great for bigger guys (big thigh, reasonable rise)
    not too sure why you wanna make a "not-so-slim" cut again.

    I expect this'd look gorgeous.

    I'm actually in the same situation as that other guy who posted, can't decide between a DR and a MDR.

    I'd totally buy this.

    well, the top block would be mostly the same (reconfigured with a proper belted waistband) but I feel the taper on the slims is pretty sharp, so at least the hem could be punched out a tad. As it is now, the taper is very modern looking, not for some people's tastes maybe. I also don't want people getting the impression that the Slims are that big, they are very precisely cut and pretty narrow. People will have to see to find out, but I feel they're what many are after in a slim trouser. There are boring trousers out there, and then there are these.

    As for the patterning and the measurements, I will say this again - the back panels are shaped to accomodate your ass, so the thigh measurement includes some of that. The back panels are wider than the front of the legs and so the thigh measurement seems roomy - it's not that big though. It works with the taper. Anyway, the cut is slightly articulated.

    I want people to know, most of all, I'm not reinventing any measuring methods - so don't worry about that. If you've ever measured pants before, then you're doing it the same way as me. On the other hand, I posted the raw measurements so that you know what to expect - they are not vanity sized jeans where you just guess your size, or try to figure out the hip based on a guess of the waist. There's no need for that. The measurements are here and all you have to do is measure where they're going to contact your body. It's very simple really, just one measurement, maybe two if you want to compare to some pants with a waistband you feel is comfortable and hits at the hips. Check my fit pics for an idea of the rise.

    That's pretty much it, though the hem would be straight across like the MDR, so slightly 'boxier' in appearance. I would probably delete the top two snaps on the collar again.

    ?

    EDIT: Forgot to remove the bottom zip like the previous version. Not exactly a stretch of the imagination anyway.

    How's this? (and we can call it the 4-zip MDR; previous 'MDR' is now the '3-zip MDR')

    can somebody fix the artishard rider so that the added bits are black to match? Then I can line them all up in a row in pshop and ogle them :eek:

    holy shit fuck you drew! this is too good :slayer:

    i am seeing those dangle zips in a new light. they work really well on the 4 zip mdr because of the pocket angles.
