I haven't heard of Crabtree. Nice stuff?
No experience with their trousers, but I've heard good things about their MTM stuff. I have one of their sweaters, which is nice (I think it's made by Lockie).

One more corduroy option for you:

How do I stop buying new clothes and bags and other unnecessary things that relate to my attire? This is really getting out of hand lol.

I have a couple of friends that live in Milan. They could buy anything and they shop at the Slowear (Incotex) stores. I really like the current regular cut Incotex/Slowear corduroys. I would skip their jeans.

Is the "regular fit" still aggressively low rise (sub 10") and skinny (19 cm hem)?

Looking at two overcoats by the same manufacturer (Dielmar, a top national manufacturer currently on its last legs) for comparative peanuts, but my budget is quite limited. One of them is tagged M/38 by the seller and the other 48 (same size, only European this time, I believe). My current overcoat is EU46 (US36) and quite roomy at that, but I have tried a size 48 raincoat which fit perfectly over a jacket, so there is room for variation between brands etc. My problem is that trying them on beforehand might not be feasible in both cases and I'm not sure which measurements would be useful.

The 38 one is 55cm/22in pit to pit according to the seller (my overcoat is 50cm/20in), but I'm not sure this is useful at all. She can't give me shoulder to shoulder measurements as it's a Raglan-sleeved balmacaan and I understand these are loose fitting coats anyway. I'm not sure what to do.

Light blue jacket. I think it's a 3-roll-2 jacket, but the store unknowingly buttoned the first one, so it looks kinda strange.
Since it is more of a summer piece, it is heavily discounted. To buy or not to buy?

Recommendations for blue corduroy pants, trouser or 5 pocket but no easy pants or pleats?

Orslow only have the 107 fit, which was too narrow in the largest size they have and Glenn’s Denim didn’t quite make the cut for me.
Have you searched O'Connell's or Cordings?

Pass on the jacket and seconded on Cordings for flat front cords. Available in every colour imaginable in both narrow and wide wale.
