    Hi everyone. I was hoping you guys might be able to help me out.
    I'm about to launch a pair of heavy jersey trousers in a boutique here in Rome at a price point of 240€
    The thing is that I've never catered to the classic menswear market, the clients within that market, or even the price point so I'm kind of just riding on instinct. I was hoping that you guys could share your opinions... Its a hand-dyed cotton stretch barré jersey fabric, with a high cut waist, tapered leg, and hand-sewn inner waistband. I still have to iron them out.
    Please excuse the photo quality, its late here and my iphone isn't cooperating.

    The presentation is dreadful - makes them look like old rags. They are not classic either if the back pockets are anything to judge by.
    The belt loops at the back look like some modern idea that failed as well

    I'd burn them.

    The back belt loops do look a bit weird. Putting the front tab through that belt loop might get kind of annoying too.

    I'll iron them and then repost a better presentation.
