I also bought this pair last Friday and never thought of the "hopsack fabric for trouser" issue. I will share some pics once they arrive.Anyone with experience on Hopsack trousers?
I already owned a Filarte navy hopsack blazer, and I picked up the matching trousers during trouser liquidation (not shipped yet).
I have been reading that hopsack is not an ideal fabric for trousers, but at $49 it seems worth the risk.
It makes a big difference when seen without a jacket, I agree. What I was getting at is the sort of cut that trousers would need in order to hang properly without bagging once they're sitting on the natural waist. For anything I intend to wear without a jacket, I prefer a lower rise.I always thought that picture looked ridiculous for showing ideal pleated trousers. He looks like a walking pear.
I like this picture better for showing rise. Once the rise gets this high, it doesn't look so good without a jacket, only with a jacket.
These four arrived - all keepers. 10 days from order to delivery, U.S. east coast. Pretty good for COVID/Holiday/International shipping.I held out all fall....but liquidation sale got me. Snatched up 2 that I've wanted since drop, and two that I hadn't planned on. Originally wanted the green donegal since it's Neo cut but not available in my size today. Need more brown in my closet so maybe the brown donegal will help. I've also wanted a gun check but have always missed out on the ones i've wanted. Not too sure about this one and had never seen it before, but's it's a little funky and I like blue/brown combos so we'll see.
- Brown Donegal FW20
- Burgundy Birdseye FW20
- Blue/Brown Cerruti Check FW20
- EThomas Blue and Brown Gun Check SS?? (hadn't seen before)
Eh, I like neutrals, but usually if they have a good texture like the Drago Wool/Linen fabrics. Neutrals will always have their place as they will go with anything, rather than worrying if any patterns will clashI'm not big on solid sportcoats aside from the classic navy blazer. I prefer a classic pattern. This is a little plain.
Fair point and I didn't mean to be a Debbie downer. I guess what I really meant is these are nice and all, but what I (and I suspect many of y'all) am most looking forward to are the patterned sportcoats. Those are the real treats.Eh, I like neutrals, but usually if they have a good texture like the Drago Wool/Linen fabrics.

I am sure there will be plenty of those that make us spend money out of nowhere, as usualFair point and I didn't mean to be a Debbie downer.

Agree that is very nice. Loved last season's and I like that this is wool/linen rather than pure linen. On the other hand I preferred last season's color, which was just a shade darker than this. This brown has a little more pink in it than I'd prefer.This one from spring preview looks great. I need a brown one and I like the subtle pattern.
