Madame Paulette shrunk two pairs of my Ambrosi/Woodhouse pants so I need new odd trousers. Woodhouse and its whipcord are no more. So, I have a new OneTrouser planned. Five pairs. Same cloth, same color. That is all. UPDATE (12/19):

Want to donate the shrunk ones to me? I have a 13 year old boy that would probably fit in them...if not, I do have a 10 year old girl as well.

Shoot. I wonder if he preshrinks the cloth at all. If that's what your gray pants were made of, I think I ordered a pair in green and one in tan. I hope they don't shrink!

Oh, it's the cleaner's fault.

I doubt what you ordered is Woodhouse, unless you happened to get your hands on the last few remaining meters available.

Wow, you don't look old enough to have either.

~2-3 cm around the waist. They still button, but uncomfortably.

Oh, and first to guess the exact cloth wins a prize.

Can't you just have them let out?

Seems sad to waste $800 pants like that

Unless you can, of course.

I just had a basted fitting of a suit done up in Woodhouse cloth. I shall call promptly to have 2-3cm added to the waist.
