I was wondering about those. How would you describe the fit? I had some cords from Taylor Stitch a few years ago but found them to be too snug for my liking.
Based on your feedback on those, I just checked out the measurements, the Spier & Mackay 5-pocket cords may fit your need for more room to move. I've been looking into those for a more relaxed thigh measurement while still being decently cut. There are 2 cuts to check out. https://www.spierandmackay.com/product/green---5-pocket-corduroy--skm-grn-crdy-fw21

I have this pair and really like them. I went with my normal waist and find they fit trim but not overly slim. I don’t know enough about what to look for in “quality” to speak knowledgeably about that, but they seem nice and I certainly haven’t noticed big issues like loose threads or pilling. I just got them in the spring, so I can’t attest to longevity.

I’m glad Trunk updated the product photo, because they previously looked more brown than green — when IRL they definitely lean more green.

Throwing these out here as I'm also trying to find some decent 5-pocket cords, from Trunk.

I've been wanting to get five-pocket cords in this color, but am currently wearing RRL jeans in a very similar color and think I might be needlessly doubling up. But they seem like a good alternative to khaki chinos.
Absolutely a pot calling the kettle black situation here but Mr. 14 O’Connells shetlands and 5 MMM 5 zips is worried about needlessly doubling up?

I have a bunch of 5 pocket cords from a lot of makers and the ones from J Crew are as good as others 3-4x the price. Uniqlo U has made some in the past with a nice high rise and straight leg but unfortunately I didn’t see any in the collection this year.

Are there any RTW makers that do a chesterfield style coat but with raglan shoulders and notch lapels? Pretty much like the KS below but raglan.

I was going to do a search and suggest SEH Kelly's Chesterfield that comes out every year or two.

I even found one in B&S, but it turns out you are the one selling it.

SEH is peak lapel. Buttoning point is a bit too low for my liking.

Dang these are cool. Have never bought anything from corridor but they’ve been intriguing lately. Those acid plaid shirts looks great.
I have an acid plaid shirt. The arms are cut really narrow. I am by no means muscular and it's tight all the way down my arms from the biceps to the forearms.
