    The quality is pretty high - nice goods, and a nice quality of build. They are pretty full cut, however, with a long-ish rise, and generous leg opening. I won't wear mine any more, even after having them slimmed by a tailor. I'd think about the Regent or Fitzgerald gabs if you like a slimmer cut (as most SFers do).

    That's true actually. For this past year they shortened up the rise, tighted up the seat, and brought the waist down to it's actual size measurement rather than the +1 inch vanity sizing they used to have

    would you happen to have the rise and leg opening for size 32?

    I recently tried these pants on in store and although I think they have slimmed the cut overall I still think they are too full, I prefer the Regent or Fitzgerald fit to the Madison.

    Why are the Regents always out of stock in a 32 or 33 waist? I know this is a popular size and all. But come on BB, it usually takes you a year to get more stock on the Regents in these waist sizes. What's up with that?

    Do they even make a Fitzgerald Gabardine trouser? I've not seen them. I've seen Madison's in all Brooks stores. I've only seen the Regents online. It's almost like the brick and mortar locations don't even bother to stock the Regents.

    I've noticed this too. BB is really dropping the ball here.
