A guy sitting side saddle would look funny.

One time riding up a steep hill bare back on a cousins horse I looked back thinking that if I slid off I'd never be found again, because the bracken fern was taller than me and I'd never be seen again under its unbrella. Scotland and Germany have some steep hills.

I lived in Blackheath Village in London for a few years and there was an old chap there who always wore lederhosen; a bit of a village character. I don't remember any yodelling though... :Clown:

Scottish "Trews" and "Slacks". Finally hear something about Slacks. But, I wonder if I heard that before with trews and Scotts?

Any thoughts on whether the distinction between trews and slacks is the absence of footstraps in slacks?

I believe the slacks have, or should have, a sideseam and no straps

Whoh... This massive iron work makes the "front part" look very strange. Would anyone have a picture of some finished ones ? I searched on google, but found nothing with such a distortion of pattern...

I thought the making would be more like some jeans, with a bit of iron work for better shape, but nothing so radical...

(I know nothing about trews, just discovered them here, and I like what I've seen so far, gives me ideas for more usual pants...).

It is not to much iron work. You press from both sides. With layers you will find that the under layer sometimes reponds better. Since you are not cutting a curve on the side-seam this is why you press (shape) a curve into it with an iron. If nothing else you will be wiser with an iron. When you see and understand the beauty of iron work you will never let a laundry mat press your garments again.

If it is an adventure, then it is not work.

I do not fear iron work, not at all. I'm just surprised by th way the lines of the check seems all "distorted" vhen viewed from the front, where the eye is used to see beautifull vertical lines. It is not the work required that bothers me (doing such iron work on a wool tartan would be relatively easy, I guess), but the result.

I've searched for military trews pictures, and each time the lines where we would have the ftont crease on some "classical" trousers are nearly straight. On the picture posted by ACECAPS, it looks like a very strange curve, more like on a vintage Levi's 501.
