    What is the default style for moleskins? I assume, given their casual nature, flat fronts and no cuffs is the default?

    Thanks,

    Flat front, side-seam pockets.
    I put cuffs one everything other than jeans, but realize that some may differ on this point.

    Moleskins are great.

    How many adult moles does it take to make a 35x32 trouser?

    Are baby moles softer and thus more expensive?

    That's how I do them. And they are among my favorite trousers, a welcome sight when the cold months come.

    Not nearly as many as the babies required to make a gallon of baby oil.

    If this is for custom, or, as some people say, bespoke, How Ever You Want Them! There is no default!

    That's like saying a notch-lapel tux is ok when its custom. Uh, no.

    To the op, I would go flat front with no cuffs (as you said).

    I had a pair of chocolate moleskins which were pleated, try to avoid that.

    If that is true then why do so many have such nice blazers when they are supposed to be somewhat sloppy. Or, is it people change the times?
