    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): [​IMG]

    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. [​IMG]

    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!

    In on the first page of a multiple page thread that will, eventually, be entertaining. I hope.

    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.

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

    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.
