    Got some new linen trousers. I'm going to post this in the Tailor's thread but sometimes feedback in here is faster. I like the fullness of the leg, they feel like wearing my pijamas. I don't know what could be done to clean a bit the back area of the trouser.

    I am having trouble finding where there is an issue, Betel.
    If I had to guess, you have an issue with extra fabric in your seat area???

    Thanks, l2b!

    Yup, don't know if the seat could be cleaner, if that makes sense.

    I think that rumpling in the fabric is very minor, and will always be covered by your jacket? I wouldn't mess with these measurements further and I'd be very happy with that fit. YMMV.

    Thanks, estitchy. Those are RTW. But I got the contact of the tailor so I think I finally found who will make my trousers. [​IMG]

    And really really cheap. He charges around $60 usd for workmanship plus fabric. Not bad. [​IMG]

    Not to take us away from diaper butts, but who do you guys like for socks? I have yet to find a sock maker (granted, haven't worn that many) that makes dress socks that don't get completely worn out within a few months of rotational wear.

    You probably need to alter the curve of the seat, so that it follows the curve of your body more closely. The sewing part is as easy as taking in/letting out a seat, but your tailor does need to have an eye for taking measurements. I've done it myself on some pants, took me about an hour of hand stitching. Would probably take me 15 if I had a sewing machine.

    I hope the tailor can make this fix. Will take this to the store tomorrow.

    what is diaper butt?

    the fit is great because the pants look great on him.



    i find that SFA house brand socks are real good, but really all socks suck, garters were where it was at.

    i find the best way to keep my socks from wearing out is to have about 60 pairs.
