    Hey folks, I am looking to get some new pants; Would you guys recommend Mr. ned or LS for custom pants. I was looking for cuffed, single reverse pleats, anyone think this is a good idea?

    Thanks...

    Do you have an odd shaped lower half? Have you had a hard time finding pants that fit you correctly? Do you want a style/fabric that is not available OTR? If the answer to all of these questions is no, then custom pants seem unneccesary to me.

    I would recommend LS Clothing and their in-house pants maker. For around $135-200(??), or half the price of Incotex, you get a very well-made trouser from decent but not amazing fabrics. Izzy has quite the selection of odd fabric laying around; mostly durable basics.

    I think custom pants are a pretty good deal (usually). They only run a fraction of what a custom suit costs, and they're personally tailored. Plus, you can usually get a wider range of fabric than what's normally available and can even source it yourself.

    I can't speak to LS or Mr. Ned, but I do think that single reverse with cuffs is a great style. It's a bit more dressy than flat-front, and is a younger look than a double or triple pleat.
