Hey guys,

I'm looking for a pair of trousers like these, i.e. high-rise, pleated, small taper or straight leg. What's your recommendation?

Ideally UK but I'm open to global suggestions :)

Thanks!

My preference is for a normal rise. Those are a bit high. They are also hemmed too high. For the model, with his body, I think those are poorly fitting. And though I’m not against pleats, with those I think forward pleats would have looked better.

I do like a high rise on my trousers, but (I agree w/SG_67 in this present instance) those are a bit too high...distractingly so, I think!

Come on now, you’re making this way too easy. Give us a challenge for god’s sake.

Peter Christian.

Below are super 100’s, super 120’s flannel, cav twill, and wool/silk. There are tweeds to consider also. All high rise, and full cut. A very impressive price/quality ratio, and based in London. Rise for 32-34 waist varies from 10.5-11 inches in my experience.

Prices are 60-85 BPS with discount if you purchase 2 at a time.

Sorry you said straight or tapered leg. PC are full cut. For straight/tapered leg your best bet is Dappered Classics. They carry Hertling trousers. A very fine quality item. Only variation from your stated desires is that they are made in Brooklyn. They also come in classic fit, which is already a bit trimmer than the more full cut PV and with a higher rise than the slim sit. Classic have a 10.5-11 inch rise in size 32-34.

All the below are slim fit. Nice mid/high rise but tapered legs. Normally lots of 110’s, 120’s, fresco, and hopsack. But they are now stocked for winter and all below are flannel and lamb skin with the exception of the first which is a tropical 120. By Spring the flannel, donegal, and lambswool will disappear, to be replaced by the 110s and 120s hopsack, and frescos. GREAT TROUSERS, but they go fast. Much more expensive than PC running $175 - $225 when not on sale, which occurs briefly at end of season, with slim pickings left.

The elderly reprobate pictured below is wearing a pair of PC flannels (a marginally slimmer cut through the leg than their moleskins or cavalry twill offerings, but) with a magnificent rise, allowing for a belt buckle to sit over the omphalos.

I just received the loden PC Calvary twills and am underwhelmed in the fabric. Candidly I had to check to see if they were 100% wool. Contemplating returning them and eating the shipping charges. Was frankly surprised given how much love they receive on this forum.

The rise on the trousers in the original post is a bit old fashioned. Watch a Fred Astaire film: if you see Fred in a pair of more casual trousers where you can see his waist, you'll notice a very high rise like that.

Now, that's OK if you don't mind being a bit old fashioned, and it's less of a problem if you're wearing the trousers with a suit, or especially with a waistcoat. But very few of us have trousers today that we wear without ever taking off a jacket, and even fewer of us have what it takes to walk around looking like Fred Astaire.

And regardless of the rise, the SG_67 is correct: the legs on that model's trousers are hemmed rather too short. Shaver's are just right, whereas some of those in momsdoc's photos are, inexplicably, too long, puddling around the ankles.

The cavalry twill weave provides a texture unlike most other woolens. I have just reached into my wardrobe and simultaneously pinched a 16 oz serge twill and a cavalry twill - the former is softer the latter stiffer.

I am minded of a silk knit tie (a decent one, at least) which provides a metallic crunch when squeezed - a completely different tactile sensation from a cravat, yet both silk.
