Ever since I met Peter at Sid Mashburn’s a couple of years ago, I have had my eye on his green corduroy trousers. The fit was impeccable. I appreciated the extreme taper in the leg polished off with a cuff. Eighteen months of searching proved futile...until recently. I came across a relaxed fit, wide wale cord trouser sans cuffs by Polo Ralph Lauren. They had potential. Though the silhouette was ill-fitting by my standards, the basic shape and fabric were there. After specifying a tapered leg, 14” trouser bottom and a 1 3/4” cuff with my tailor, he went to work. The result is a beloved trouser with Sid Mashburn undertones.
*In order to create a turn-up, or cuff, choose the longest inseam available off the rack.
