A Question on Trews
Posted 15 April 2010 - 11:48 PM
I have looked up a few books on trouser cutting and cannot find anything specific on "trews".
Does anyone out there know something about the subject?

There are two types of trews, one with no side-seam and one with a straight cut down the side-seam,they can be cut a little closed. This is so the tartan can wrap around the leg uninterrupted

If he is a tailor serving a customer who needs trews for his reg't then have him contact the M.O.D. and see if they still have "sealed" patterns. They are the official pattern for the M.O.D.

The pictures have the same spirit like your ones. My scanner not working right now.

DZ, no offence, but what you wrote means nothing, except to maybe three people on this forum. Could you please scan and post.
In this case, it is OK because it is a reference. It is standard practice not to translate references unless an English translation has been published. It would be the same if it were an academic journal reference.

I would still like to see it even if not translated.

I've actually always viewed trews as more a military garment despite the historical use of them as warn by higher ranking members of the clans that could afford a horse, because believe you me, you don't want to ride a horse with a kilt on
