Here is the final result from Collaro.
I am not 100% satisfied.
The right leg seems to be bigger than the left one. Also I have a little too much room at the back of both thighs.
The waist needs to be smaller as well,right now I have to tighten the straps as much as I can.
Even though i cannot see it myself in these pictures, but they need some tightening between the upper thigh (it might also be the excess fabric from the back-upper-thigh).
I am planning to take these to a tailor in order to make some minor adjustments.
I do like the comfortability and the curdoroy.
As for future orders from collaro: what would you suggest I tell them to do differently on my next pair?
I do not think these look bad, but the right leg issue is nagging me and the overall result could be a little better.
Any feedback and/or alteration suggestions for these trousers or the next pair are appreciated
The corduroy is the reason for most of the issues. It’s a very difficult cloth to tailor. It doesn’t drape, give, shrink or stretch. You can’t do any shaping with an iron. Some tailors cut them a bit looser because of those issues with the cloth. You are better off with the loose fit because they can be taken in and will be fine but you could not let them out without the old seams showing. Wouldn’t be too critical of this pair. I almost commented about using corduroy when you mentioned it with the previous trouser you posted
