Can’t comment on suits / scs, but did just buy a pair of Cavour trousers. Very pleased with the purchase - very high quality for the price - but they do run trim. I’m a tagged w33 in most US makes, 50 in rota (medium-waist, model 1-5-6 from the rota website, need waist taken in about 3/4 inch), purchased the Cavour in 50, single pleat, cotton drill. They’re a little bit more trim all around than the rota pants. The upper block / butt and leg are both trim, but not constricting at all - for me, the cut is really very good (medium-high waist, trim, not much flappy excess fabric, etc.). My alterations tailor commented very favorably on them and he sees lots of high quality stuff. I’d add that the single pleat is quite small, so keeps the overall aesthetic slim. Hope this helps.
