    there's some nice Purple Lable wool trousers on Ebay right now for $90... the pair I'm interested in are a 35" waist. I wear a 36 in most designers, is expanding the waist via a tailor not a problem? I assume 1" won't throw off the balance...

    One inch is unlikely to affect the balance at all. Go for it.

    All of my purple label trousers have been generous [​IMG] I will also be listing some 36 pretty soon.

    As in the cut or the waist line...

    More the waist line than the cut. These must be good quality trousers because that darned global warming is making most of my other trousers shrink too much in the waist. These have probably shrunk the least.
