    Ed, people would like the one pocket idea much better if you trademarked it: The Panta™ One Pocket™

    Everyone will not need to size up, the fit will work for some, not work for others. That is the issue with RTW, there is no "normal" fit that would make everyone happy [​IMG] . One of my goals with the pants was not to have that excess fabric behind the thigh and calf that you see flapping about in some RTW pants. The measurements you posted would be a bit bigger than what I would like if I were buying size 34 pants.
    Are the pant legs shaped like actual legs or cylinders? These was an issue for Foo.

    I agree, I also hate the floppiness of RTW pants and always have mine slimmed

    it's only really the knee that seems to be a bit off, Ed

    I just measured the slim fitting RL made in Italy flannel pants and they're 10" at the knee and 7.8 at the cuff opening

    This thread is a study in SF patterns. Vox starts a thread about Edmorel in order to preemptively submarine a future Ed thread, ensuring this thread was about Vox from the beginning. After an impressive start there was a successful derailing of the thread based entirely on ass. It's never surprising when an Ed thread is derailed by ass, but the fact that it was Vox-ass was truly special.


    This thread should be pinned as it truly has been exemplary thus far. I hope someone options it into a movie script.

    Getting this back on track - if there is any posibility of shipping these to Australia, put me down for a trial pair, with more orders to follow if they are nearly as good as they look in the pictures.

    It hides treasure and booty.

    It's a plaid flannel shirt by Barba, which should have awakened whnay. from his chemically induced slumber.

    Vox,there is something wrong in the front,don't know what. It doesn't look balanced. Is that the infamous Allen Edmonds belt?

    The pants look great. Best of luck in your venture.

    The back pocket is a small issue. I personally could not wear these without a jacket because the pocket is on the wrong side for me. Like all intelligent people I carry my wallet opposite my dominant hand, which for me is right, requiring a left back pocket. So I couldn't wear these with just a smart shirt without running the risk of confusing my ass and juggling my wallet from hand to hand like some cheap circus act.

    This won't keep me from trying them out (once I figure out measuring), it does though limit my use. These are effectively no back pocket pants for me, which I would also be fine with.

    Perhaps in the future pocket side could be selectable as well as a no back pocket option , thinking it would be easier to eliminate a feature rather than add.

    Again, they look great and best of luck.

    carrying your wallet opposite your dominant hand makes zero sense to me.
