11oz is pretty heavy, yes?

I know Tom has a pair of these (I don't), but from what I have seen this are almost unbeatable at the price.

It's a real bummer that there aren't really any US companies doing this, since the shipping costs (£50 to the US) cancel out the obviously great price in the UK.

They look pretty decent. Probably made in China and apparently 98 pounds is the 'early bird deal'; still they do look good. Back buckles do nothing for me but nor do they bother me.


some sort of banal legitimacy

If you're considering military reproductions, you might want to check out these WWII officers khakis from What Price Glory:
http://onlinemilitaria.net/products/147 … c=no?bc=no

They sell for $45 but ship from the US. WPA also does several British reproductions and one very chic French model, very high waisted and with deep pleats, which I find rather rakish but others may well view with horror.

Although I've never tried the trousers, I have purchased a bush jacket from them and can vouch for the quality: Nothing fancy but solidly made. I wore it hard for several years and it still looked great. Unfortunately, I accidentally dried it on high heat and it shrank about three sizes so I had to toss it.

Re: High rise pants list

Vintage trousers. Search Etsy/Ebay for things like:

vtg pants 30 (30 being your waist size)
1960s slacks 30
vtg army pants 30
etc...

When you find a good one, get it copied. Or keep searching like a maniac like me.

Haha. Not a fan of the flapped pockets.  I really canít stray from OíConnellís.  Their twills are a nice weight, made well, have a great cut, theyíll hem and cuff for no added charge, plus there is a multitude of colors from which to choose.  Not cheap, but worth it to me.

Theyíll even taper for a minimal charge. Itís truly a no-brainer.

They'll probably  become my main source, then.
