I'm looking for some nice trousers (about 4-6 pairs) who is good value but great construction in NY area? I want nice wool but durable and something won't wrinkle soo easy (i have some 15mil zegnas that wrinkle too damn easy)

flat front, (some w/ belt loops, some w/ side tabs) top quality construction for work everyday

I got very nice trousers from Ercole. Top of the line work. Not so cheap.

No advice for a maker in NY, but I used a 12 oz Woodhouse twill (the heaviest plain twill they had, or so I was told by a Woodhouse rep) for my trousers, and they are pretty darn close to being wrinkle resistant.

The ones I got, yeah, but maybe if you used cheap cloth.

I just need average cloth for everyday wear - something that is durable & more wrinkle resistant than the very luxurious stuff.

I'd rather cheap to average cloth with great fit & construction for everyday wear.

were these pants bespoke or mtm?

Bespoke. Nice hand lapped seams, etc. Very good fit.

Sounds good - I think I am going to try them. Who do I speak to for fitting there? (are their multiple individuals or just one person)

Because they keep firing me. Don't you read the Advance Forum?

Seriously, I tried Ercole both to see how good he is, and to save some cash. I was pleased with the result, and will probably get some more trousers from him. I don't know about a coat, but who knows.
