Aye, when retailers change their manufacturers, it kind of throws you a bit of a curve.I think you’re right mate - notice the fabrics. My PoW and Houndstooth ones are a rather unpleasant Poly Viscose blend but I have some light grey and black ones that are Poly cotton and much more like what you’d expect. Cuts are different too with the light grey ones being looser with a high rise, the blacks being slim fit and lower rise.
The best sta pressts I had were sky blue and dark blue from Merc. The model was called ‘Lord John’ from about ten years ago. Of course they’ve since changed the cut, style and fabric so I’ve no idea what Mercs are like now.
Like you , l was so pleased with my poly cotton staprest from them that l decided to try a pair of their other trousers . In my case l went for gold and green 'tonic' trousers which were a wee bit of a disappointment but considering how well done by the other trousers l felt that l could suffer it. .
