    A DR isn't as hard to pull off as you might think, and probably more versatile than you'd expect. It's not always the best choice for bigger guys, but most of pulling it off comes from believing you can pull it off.

    Agreed. I don't cuff linens so I can wear them casually as well as part of more trad fits. A cuff with sneakers just doesn't work for me, but a plain bottom hem does double duty. (I never wear my tweeds with sneakers, of course, so I can cuff away with those.)

    Also, what is the expected wait for special order trousers? Received one pair from an order but not second pair. Shame as the pair received is a summer pant and the other are winter.

    Another +1, and same question on that hand-burnished Carmina jumper - looking forward to my first Carminas.

    I've an MTM linen suit with 2" cuffs - I think it works very well. Of course, I pretty much prefer cuffs on everything - I find having a little visual weight to the bottom of the trouser makes the transition from trouser to my size 12 feet a little smoother.

    The context and level of dress is probably relevant. Cuffs might work well on a linen suit. I have all of my suit trousers cuffed, although I don't own a linen suit. Like applky, I like to wear my linen trousers more casually. I often go sockless in the summer time, and prefer less dressy shoes. So I think I will skip the cuffs on those.

    Hey... about 3 years ago you ha these tan pants made out of some WW2era-type fabric, I forgot the name. Any slight chance you'd be restocking those? I knew I should've bought 2 pairs.

    and there was some recent discussion about trying to do another run, so I would stay tuned since it sounds like it may happen as a special order or something like that

    Those! I'd buy 2-3 pairs this time around! (If the price is reasonable)

    On a side note, I need about an inch or so in the ass and the waist after a recent weight gain. Can I get this out of the Walt? Any experiences?

    yes.

    in my experience some of the fabrics have made up slightly differently so I've made that adjustment both ways; on the moleskin and regimental twills, I had the waist let out a little under an inch (but I think you can do up to 1.5" -- ask Mike to be sure); on the super 120s wool and some of the other dressier wools I've had the waist taken in by about the same amount.

    actually now that I think of it, the difference there may be that I'm washing and drying the ones I have to have let out. that probably explains it. either way though this answers your question.
