High-rise trousers are our trademark. Not only are they comfortable, but elongate your body immensely. Elegance even below the waistline!
In almost all cases, we recommend that the trousers have a high rise, about the height of the navel. There are many reasons for this. The two most important, however, are that this elongates the look of the legs and makes sure the wearer avoids showing any shirt under the closing button.
While we accept that this is a point of contention and we always respect our customers’ wishes, we recommend that the trousers be cut wider than most tailors. Not only does this make the trousers more comfortable and look more louche, but it also makes a man’s feet appear smaller and more elegant.
The trousers are cut close to the wearer’s seat until its widest point and fall from the seat to the shoe in a straight line.
Our trouser length is highly influenced by tradition. Hence, we do not adhere to the trend of overly short trousers. We appreciate the understatement and luxury of trousers which reach the middle of the heel of the shoe. We generally recommend finishing the hems in a diagonal line (also known as a military cuff) to give the perfect balance between correct trouser length and limited break on the shoe.
