I just looked at the Instagram account and it appears to me that they flipped the typical design elements of a garment around. For example, putting back pockets on the front of jeans, and putting the front pockets on the back, thus making it appear one is wearing the jeans backwards. Thus it seems to me that wolsro (orslow backwards) is aptly named given how the garments are designed.

Just quickly looking at the two accounts, orslow and wolsro, I think these posts show the design ethos clearly:

Fittingly, I feel the exact opposite emotions for Wolsro that I feel for Orslow.

Hopefully it’s just a conceptual capsule, I highly doubt it’s gonna be an entirely new brand going forward because the concept is pretty dumb. I don’t mind if it’s just a one-off thing to cater to some off kilter folks but it 99% hopefully won’t replace orslow as we know it.

It's a good troll, I'd assume. Given their ethos, doing a silly back-to-front concept seems quite unlikely.

I'd love to be proven wrong, though.

Hey guys are baker pants and fatigue pants the same thing? I see the name interchanged when I look up "fatigue" pants on ebay.

A couple questions about new yorker pants.

I have a 36 inch waist (maybe slightly more, 36.25 inches). I wear size 3 in the french work pants and size 4 in the green slim fit fatgues. The fatigues fit great but if they were any smaller they would be too tight. What size do I need in new yorker shorts?

Also do you like the new yorker shorts? I am a middle aged dude. Not trying to be too stylish. I worry that they might be too long (though I am 6’3 so ahould be ok). or too puffy in the thighs.

If you love any shorts from orslow or other brands, let me know.

Thanks!

I went XXL at 36". Any smaller wouldn't' work, and if I consume less, I can always cinch them down. Go XXL.

I am 5'11, muscular build so slightly bigger legs. One wash in (I didn't notice any shrinkage) they go just below my knee caps.

New Yorker shorts are some of my faves, but I did get them shortened to 7 inches or so as I found them too long. Ended up also starting with regular fit fatigues that I had made into 7 inch shorts as I prefer the button fly and likewise the fatigue shorts are pretty long.
With pants, I do go slim fit on the fatigues.

I do think if the slim fit fatigues fit well that a 4 in the New Yorker should work, but cannot go wrong with a 5 either. Def go 5 if you have larger thighs as they run smallish there.

Howdy, first time poster here. I just bought this pair of Orslow 105 One Wash in a size 3 and got screwed by the sizing. I'm 6' 3" so I thought this would be best but the top block is just too big for my 31-32" waist. Took the tags off so I can't return them to the seller. Can anyone confirm that the size 2 has an almost identical inseam?

Here's the listing, worn for literally 1 hour: https://www.ebay.com/itm/404897243735?itmmeta=01HTEB1T4S4RJ4RSVJ44J45R21&hash=item5e45c1a257:g:r0kAAOSwxOtmC2dT&itmprp=enc:AQAJAAAAwDn0uWvBWOH1e7vz3RtukA1aZaF4hHdrFMmGVZAQ+Xr9QMYHe+0Iq1tP0SzpSz2EPkaONha8seCsdWyah+xiBItpD7AZJlsY2jAeWsMyIsUthVYMs6+n7FeuJBYHqJBDfO5XkQ5S+2VjUfZUku39mfDmcWWhBb4Cpc7P1zpMcNdD/n49vnftjFj5AZ8fx1VdF9nducjkEtPEPWMvCQFBN0IRV1jgB0g6hgeBfMvSaDoQKICDtxyXcMGUq352gMFe3w==|tkp:Bk9SR76ih8vTYw

The inseams get shorter, sometimes by as much as an inch, as you go down a size. I have a pair of 107s in size 2 and the inseam is maybe 30".
