Hey gang, first post here. I am trying to find some very quality hefty cotton twill / canvas pants in a clean (not too low and skinny) cut that are machine washable. If any of you are familiar with Buzz Rickson drill, I am talking this kind of weight cloth. Pants that can be worn with blazers and odd jackets, bucks and wingtips. I really like the Epaulet Rivet chino, but they are a bit too low and tight. Thanks for the help.

I would suggest always wearing lighter weight trousers. They simply hang better. A heavy weight drill is going to be stiff and fit light a heavy jean.

Disagree with this statement. In my experience, heavier weight trousers tend to hang better.

Your experience? How many trousers have you bought in your life and how old are you?

I have a pair of Sid Mashburn cavalry twills that would probably fit the bill. Check out Sid,
