@AlexanderTG where dem elbow patches at?!
Looks really good!
They're definitely on the slim side mike compared to the trumans and fatigues which are wider and straight, the tux tapers in at the ankles kinda like the Ghurka -- Ghurka pants have a wider thigh area from what I've seen.
The geometric jacquard is a beautiful fabric. Hard to explain, its subtle yet when natural lights hits it the pattern sticks right out... it's something you got to see really
@ManofKent it's definitely easier mate, you'd want a structured crown but a floppy and unstructured brim so you can do what you like with it... someone posted a link to a nice uk based hatter which may help you. Their hats were nice and quite affordable. Or you could look into Gladys Tamez Millenery for something much more premium.
Oops! Forgot about that. They're happily exactly where they oughta should. Will try to post a pic tomorrow.
Thanks for bearing with me through the process. It cost a little more to have them hem from the shoulders but it was worth it.
I've got a hat block and flange in my size so I might just pick up a felt cone and start from scratch. Could be a fun project...
You've got a good tailor there!

The pants get better with wear in a big way.

Shit, that looks good @Shingles Do you mind letting me know how the Cinch fits in top block and thigh compared to the Truman? Comparable? Significantly tighter? If you can, do you have the thigh measures (I usually go out in a 90 degree ankle right at the seam)?
Gotta get a brown homespun Bedford. @CSCoHammers7 , you guys still have one left in large (I think somebody might have also one for sale somewhere on here ...)
@mbaum Sold out of everything but small (last one), but we've got a re-cut coming, so we'll have a large to sell you in the near future
Awesome - what is a re-cut?
Thanks Mike. Circumference, waist-wise they're the same (mine's 30 and fits TTS). Top block and thigh no significant difference. Truman being a little roomier in the thighs yes perhaps due to the double pleats but not by very much. I'm pretty sure i've measured the cinch for you earlier, have a look here http://www.styleforum.net/t/402371/engineered-garments-fw-14/315#post_7289023
Hope it helps if not let me know and I'll help out. Cheers
^ Thanks for this, @Shingles . Now I remember that I asked the same question before. I am getting old, man, getting old ...
I should've just said that we'll be restocking a small quantity of M-XL haha. My bad! Sent from my XT1060 using Tapatalk
I also own the Truman in Brown Homespun (picked them up from Nepenthes) and think they are great. I compared them with my Cinch pants from last FW13 season when I got them in and as I recall (I did this like 2-3 weeks ago so memory is a bit fuzzy) and measurements were pretty similar with biggest difference being in the hem. I am a 32 in both the Cinch and the new Truman pants and when I compared, the hem was 0.5" bigger on the cinch pants (7.5" on the cinch versus 7" on the Truman). I don't advocate any sizing up or down form my experience. I'm a pretty consistent 32 in EG and the Truman pants were no different.
I'm sadly right in thinking they don't do a more generous cut in the homespun, aren't I?
No - Truman is likely the most generous but, hey, if it works on me, it will work on you and I like the Truman. I have a SS14 shorts in this cut and it is generous in the thigh ... I will let you know how my "Sizing up" experiment will go with the homespun Ghurka. Will have it on Thu (Scared ...).
