    triton and PaulYAY... sorry for the delay. I completely forgot about getting the measurements. I bought the 36" Waist in "New Navy". Here they are now (all taken lying flat):

    Waist = 36"
    Inseam = 32"
    Leg Opening = 8 1/4"

    I'm by no means a professional measurer. I took the inseam measurement by measuring from the seam at the bottom of the crotch to the hem. Let me know if you want additional numbers...

    Thanks hoit.

    I just measured my pair (from SS10 I think).
    sz 32
    waist: 16.5"
    inseam: 32.5"
    knee: 9.25"
    hem: 8.25"

    I'd be curious as to the hem in the same size this season (it definately looks like a more narrow opening in the Oi Polloi shots). Oi Polloi calls it "a regular leg chino with a slight taper". Judging relative to what's popular with the forum though, I'm guessing these will seem quite straight-legged. I'm going to e-mail Albam for measurements in size 31 and 32 and will post results when I receive a response.

    I make the old style (again 36) 8 1/2" leg opening, but I think the bigger difference is in the thigh and knee.

    Thigh (straight across at crotch) 13"

    Knee (straight across 17" from hem) 10"

    Albam sent me a measurement table for the chinos. MoK was correct about the difference in the cut being more in the thigh and knee. The hem looks to be the same.

    We measure all of our garments laid flat and pulled taut;

    LABEL WAIST HEM FRONT RISE THIGH 15cm FROM CROTCH KNEE 30 cm FROM CROTCH
    28 37.5cm 19cm 29cm 25.5cm 23cm
    29 39cm 19cm 29cm 26.5cm 23.75cm
    30 40cm 20cm 29cm 27cm 24cm
    31 40cm 21cm 30cm 27.5cm 25cm
    32 41.5cm 21cm 30cm 28.5cm 25.5cm
    33 44cm 21.5cm 30.5cm 29cm 26cm
    34 45cm 22cm 31.5cm 29.5cm 27cm
    35 46cm 23.5cm 32cm 30.5cm 27.5cm
    36 46cm 22.5cm 31.5cm 31cm 27.5cm
    38 48.5cm 22.5cm 32cm 31cm 27.5cm

    that's very helpful and here's a friendlier format in both inches and cms. i can confirm the measurements to be accurate for my 28s. They just arrived yesterday and are my best-fitting chinos so far (and i've tried on unis, baron wells, boo, bastian, mmm, ...). also the riri zipper is awesome.
    i wish they make a pair in grey though (also this is random by if you have these +j crooped wool flannel trousers in 28/29/30 ) you should sell them to me)
    i ordered 4 pairs and only 3 arrived, emailed albam w/ photographic evidence and they promptly sent another pair and offered a future discount. great store.

    guh, weekend jacket looks good but is way too much @ 400+. New trail parka is welcome, but the colour combinations are whack imo.

    It's a shame that the weekend jacket isn't water resistant in any way, so it's pretty much useless to me, as I only wear a jacket when it's really cold or/and wet.

    Albam has a 20% discount code today, look at their website.

    No one owning a casual blazer and telling how it fits?
