    Would like to know what you find, I have some shitty tweed Lands End Canvas pants that I have no idea why I bought and was thinking of adding a ribbed cuff and taper the other day.

    That explains it. I was looking on the site for whipcord suit. Didn't know they called it Cordlane. Thanks for the tip.

    Should I check the US site or the UK site for it?

    It's a fabric that's perfect for the spring/summer. Here's wikipedia's definition:

    The fabric whipcord is a strong worsted or cotton fabric made of hard-twisted yarns with a diagonal cord or rib. The weave used for whipcord is a steep-angled twill, essentially the same weave as a cavalry twill or a steep gabardine. However, the ribs of whipcord are usually more pronounced than in either of those fabrics, and the weft (filling) may be visible between the ribs on the right side, which is usually not the case for gabardines. In practice, marketing considerations, rather than technical details, determine when the specific term whipcord is used.
    Whipcord is usually found in durable outdoor clothing (typically pants, sometimes jackets) as a 16 to 18oz (ounce per square yard fabric weight) wool, or in durable workers' clothing (typically overalls) as a 9 to 12oz cotton. In the latter case, whipcord is an alternative to duck, which has a different weave.
    Whipcord should not be confused with corduroy. Whipcord has a hard smooth finish with diagonal ribs. Corduroy is fuzzy with vertical ribs.

    For the ribbed cuff.

    I think I just might get my tailor to do it. Slightly taper the easy pants and just sew on the ribbed cuffs. I don't have a sewing machine and sewing by hand will be challenging my patience.
