Just ordered the stone covert high rise trousers. Please excuse my ignorance, but I have never owned similar stone covert trousers before.

How versatile would you say these are in terms of formality? I understand that they are well suited as odd trousers with sport coats, but will they work also work as a kind of dressy chinos alternative (i.e. with polos and sweaters)?
Yes, easily.

Permanently moving back to Scotland from UAE, so ordered a DB Overcoat, VBC Flannel Trousers and one of the long sleeve polo shirts.

Good news is I have an excuse to wear winter clothes; bad news is that as a fully fledged tax payer, I'm going to have to reduce impulsive clothes purchases... :(

Tried taking the closest color to real life as possible:

This is actually a special one as it wears like a sweatshirt being from the Comfort Stretch line. If someone has to get 1 hopsack from SM get this one.
Thank you very much Sir for taking the time to post this excellent shot! Unfortunately, since I asked this innocent question all my potential sizes are gone now :(

This is what I got so far (pls apologize for the quality). I am still thinking about keeping them. They are a bit baggy for my style.

Those are not "baggy" at all. Those look great and that is the cut you should be wearing.

Why is everyone here so obsessed with nut-hugging slim fits and short jackets while pretending to care about classic proportions?

Thanks I appreciate the pics. I'm not a fit expert but I think they look great on you. Is the fabric see through?

Edit: Ah, but it gives you an extra layer of fabric at the end of the inseam, meaning you'd actually have to wear through the outside layer to the get to the one that would be left if you converted to plain hem. Now I get it.
It was a bit difficult to describe what I meant--I should've just posted a picture--but seems like you got there

Do you have last seasons coverts by any chance for comparison? I'm anxious to receive mine as I'm PRAYING that they're a roomier fit that than last seasons

I don’t have the last seasons but from I can tell they are well proportioned this time.

I dont think that they are baggy. The pleat and pockets have a sligth flare and you could probably even size up and tailor the waist. The bunching around your calfs will be fixed when you hem them.
