Just keep in mind that hemlines can always go up, but not down... so plan accordingly. FWIW I don't think making them 3/4 cuffed is wasteful, though. I also think they'd make nice shorts, either to the knee or higher. Since all the action is in the top block though, we can't afford to make shorts and trousers - we'll just make them long and people can make them whatever length they want to. They're tapered enough to do all of those lengths from stock, imo. As for TOJ, or me, or whatever the work setup would be, just thinking of possible changes. Would be nice to refresh things and address some of the concerns that people have. The product is still as good as ever and little would change on that end, only improve; I am just talking about rearranging things a bit. TOJ came about kind of accidentally 3 years ago, and is getting a little big for it's toddler bed, something like that. Needs it's own room and stuff now. I think I've made a case for quality and my work, and adding a bit more here and there can't hurt. In that case, get something in black lamb, I still like the CWU-45 in black. You kinda dress in biz-caz but you're still young too, the CWU is fine as a biz-caz thing.
