I have outgrown (!) a pair of Ede and Ravenscroft stripes morning trousers and I am considering a bespoke pair. 

 

The reason for this is because: 

 

1) I cannot find fishtail trousers off the peg

 

2) The pleats are always "wrong" (normally backwards)

 

3) I can experiment with patterns. 

 

Can anyone contradict my rationale, i.e. point to a good off-the-peg alternative? 

 

Otherwise, can anyone recommend a good trouser maker, including Savile Row if necessary. I am looking for the most formal option. I have a morning vest from Andersen and Sheppard but I have been told that the "build" of their garments is "easier" than others. I was thinking Henry Poole for the most formal wear?

My site is taken down very soon, as I don't need the site anymore. So take a look and enjoy, as you will see such work nowhere in this world anymore.

 

If someone need something, my email is uschoen@hotmail.com. After WW3, you will find me anyway. I then, will teach tailoring to many people for free.

That's very sad to hear DZ.

Maybe if you take the old pair back to Ede & Ravenscroft and ask them to duplicate them, you'll get what you want? On their part they'll probably want to prove that they can still provide the same satisfaction.


Each phenomenon which is taken up should be treated with as much thoroughness as possible at that standpoint... One thing at a time and that done well!

Well, the problem is that my Ede and Ravenscroft pair were off the peg and therefore are not fishtail back and are also too tight around the waist without much seam to widen...

Fishtail or not, as long as you can do this with your morning trousers you are perfectly fine, trust me!
