    Depends entirely on the individual and your physique, but I guess it's possible you've been wearing them too high. Most modern dress pants don't ride at the actual waist. You'd need something like a 12" rise in a smaller waist size to actually ride that high, I've worn suits like that previously and it looks good with a jacket over, but kind of awkward as separates if you're a smaller guy, say under 6' or so.

    From the measurements they look more relaxed in the thigh than the W+H chinos. At the hem they are close to my +J flannels

    Would you be willing to make some to look like the original sample without buttons? For some reason they're bugging me, but everything else looks pretty great.

    Also want to get that Visvim look up over there lol. Any chance on some oxfords without button down collars or perhaps shirts with a different fabric?

    We're not modifying the pants in any way. You are free to do that after you buy them, but there's nothing you can do with them otherwise anyway, it's part of the design.

    Looks great. Because of the elastic, should we err on the side of a little too tight or a little loose?

    Best question yet - the measurement is for the waist/elastic at full stretch (meaning the back waistband goes completely straight and elastic at full tension) so you shoul try to size at your exact waist to the inch on the chart. If you're right at say, 32.5" or 32.6", size up to the 33" actual. There's about .5" or more of give in these before the elastic would begin to bunch and show, the margin might be even bigger than that actually. But do round up within a half inch, because they're fine to shrink to the body, but they're not gomna get bigger than they are, they're still set and tailored on the outside to a certain measurement.

    34-36 look good to me; I appreciate the extra room in the top block and the aggressive taper below the knee. :D

    The jacket should stretch a little. Don't expect massive stretching everywhere though, depends on the area getting tension.
    To mold the collar, soak the jacket kind of quickly and then as it dries, you can hand mold it gently. That's all it takes.

    They are structured trousers and so they'd look pretty silly to get rid of the crease, but you could try. Worst case scenario, you'll just have to take them back the ironing board and put the crease back in.

    Yeah, I believe so. They are both listed on the site, along with the pants.
