    If they look like what I think they will look like... sign me up!

    BTW, are the chino's going to have a similar pattern? maybe without the pleating? Can't wait for pics...

    chinos won't have pleats and won't be beltless. Different design, just conventional chinos with a nice fabric and the object dying (which we still need to experiment on but Mrs TOJ sent the selvedge chino fabric from Japan the other day and it hasn't arrived in Korea to work on just yet)

    Trou sound great, the most important thing to me though will be the fabric. how thick are we talking? is this more of a suiting fabric like a tasmanian wool or is it something more substantial?

    Is there any way the beltless one can be flat front?

    maybe, but not now. We might do those later. I actually don't really like flat front pants - I think they look boring and remind me of biz-caz bores. I know people shy away from pleats because they've sen triple-pleated Dockers and stuff and been scarred for life, but the single pleats on these TOJ pants give a little more room in the top block and look kind of artistic, people will comment on the pleat when they see it I think.

    it's like a 3 season suit fabric weight. Gabardine texture, so not completely smooth, and no sheen.

    In the future we may play around with different fabric weights as I come across more fabrics that meet my approval. The design is cool so it'd be a shame to just throw just any fabric at it. These are not custom, to save a lot of hassle and time.

    Trousers sound really tempting, will probably pick up a pair in black.

    Seems like you've created my ideal trouser, right down to the elastic waist and single pleat. :slayer:

    Put me in for black and navy

    And what other colors are you going to make for sure?

    I'll buy 4 total to rotate through the week. (0)
