    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I think you're right on a lot of that.

    As far as the rises, that can be messed with and adjusted but taking in the rear rise fixes some, not all. If perfect is '10' and where we're at at the start (my pants fit) is '2', adjusting the rear rise gets it to 4. Adjusting the waistband in the rear gets it to 7. There's other things you can do to get it to an 8 but it won't ever be a 9 or 10 for MTM or OTR with the angle I stand at. Sucks but that is life.

    Adjusting the rises.. eg if you took out the front and took in the back, it won't 'tilt' anything, it'll just make the front deeper for no reason (giving you a FUPA appearance) and the rear will fix some of it but if you have a 'normal person ass', it also gives you a wedgie. You have to mess with the waistband as well as the rise and seat.

    Check this out if you've got the time..

    Both, but I's referring to yours in my comment. I think that his suffers from his posture issue, but either way it should be accounted in the trousers fit, so his are also subpar on fit.

    Well thank you for posting that they are subpar after I post a picture pointing out the subpar fit and the fixes for the various issues.

    Despite of agreeing if you about the subpar fit of your trousers, I also provided another diagnosis, because I do think that yours were not right ("lowering the waistband, adjusting the rise, and some other stuff"). So, my comment was clearly not stating the obvious...

    I guess we'll see. I get them back from the tailor Saturday (that's if there's no other work to be done).

    As far as the width of the pants, I believe they're great. I wouldn't have the knees or opening any wider, if that's what you meant by a wider shilouette. I'm sticking with the idea that the look is altered by the warped upper-area and will be much better once that is fixed.

    Interesting information, but I fixed it for you a little bit. So far, this hasn't really bothered me much, as this effect is diminished when moving. Only standing at attention like posing for a picture here shows it to the full extent. I will definitely keep track of how my trousers fit. I do have a slight dip in my lower spine, but my pelvis seems to be pretty leveled. At least that's what I concluded after gazing affectionately at myself in the mirror this morning. We'll see, it's an interesting fit problem to tackle.

    The choice of trouser width is a stylistic choice up to a certain degree. It may affect fit in some ways, but this is not it. A different cut is needed, not a wide knee or leg opening.

    Yes, I did not refer to it as the solution to your trousers issue, just a stylistic preference of mine. Your trousers were not cut for your posture and hence the fit problem.

    Major rush getting ready this am. Quick shower, no shave, casual everything. Photo only when I got back in. I do not like rushing...

    I'll state something obvious about trouser fit.

    Do not carry stuff in your trouser pockets, especially with lightweight fabrics. Of course, if you must carry stuff, have it in there when tailoring.

    Cheers,

    Thanks Joshua! Yes, unfortunately the shoes are not that clear, but you get the idea. [​IMG]
