    I'd be interested in a tobacco linen/ fresco suit :-D

    Formosa is the tailoring option that makes the most sense to me at the moment. The fit on me is pretty much perfect; I only need to get the sleeves taken in.

    Eidos high rise is like 11, Rota higher rise is like 10.5? Eidos taper a lot more though (size 30 wise) Rota has 8.25? leg opening while Eidos had 7.75? Is it high/high rise, high enough for me, otherwise I got some old RL pants that has rise~12 in?

    Eidos Sal/Lorenzo according to MM site is not even 10 inches in rise untill size 52, no sizes above 52 reaches 11 inches in rise. I wear 46 which is 24 CM in rise but i usually lower inseam to get a higher rise.

    I don’t know how MM measures it, but sub 10 would be UAB? (I assume what that is given all my Bloomingdales suit pants are probably UAB) NMWA puts Sal’s rise at 11.4 for EU46 (30in)

    Another nice pant is camoshita (dressier ones outside the easypants etc) though they taper too much otherwise this season’s brown/khaki Calvary twill was a must for me

    We measure front rise from top of waistband to crotch. Others measure from bottom of waistband to crotch. Others measure it completely differently: (outseam - inseam). Important to know when you compare trousers or use the info vs your own trousers

    Marcus seems to measure below the waistband (which is extra wide).

    +1; as someone who's a bit high-waisted, I need a slightly longer than usual front rise which keeps me out of a lot of RTW that I wish I could do... Also, from my experience, the way Greg does it - from the top to the waistband to the seam of the crotch - is the only really usable measurement. Without the waistband does't give enough detail and the outseam-minus-inseam is a joke because it doesn't account for taper (if the inseam and outseam were absolutely parallel it ~could~ work).

    I raised this as a Q in the Eidos thread and nobody responded; wish I could have got a definitive answer...

    I honestly don't know that one is better than the others when it comes to measuring rise, but it's good to know which is used so you can compare properly. Outseam-inseam is a good way to measure trousers rise across different cuts/patterns, i.e. the way front and back rise are balanced.

    That coat is killer.

    edit: did you have it tailored at all? It looks so much better fitted in your pic that the original garment shots.
