1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

Pleat front trousers. Dry clean. Imported."

    ^^^ The Madison fit tends to have a higher rise and because of this, the inseam is not always indicative of the actual overall length of the leg. I usually have a 30" inseam in jeans and low-rise trousers, but wear a 28" or 29" on my suit pants and some trousers with a normal rise. It may help to compare the outseam of a pair of trousers that you own with a normal rise (11 - 12 inches) that fit you well against the measurements that I provided in the B&S listing.

    Either way, thanks for looking!
