I have a pair of the houndstooth flannel. I had my tailor take the belt loops off and add side tabs.

Magnificent pair of pants: Just the right rise; single forward pleat; not too skinny or wide in the leg & an excellent weight. A very high recommendation.

I was ready to buy a pair of these. I decided to have one more go at Ebay, and on a whim I searched for a common spelling mistake. As luck would have it, I came across someone selling 2 pair of older model LL Bean "Calvary" twill trousers--one grey and one green (the green is what I was particularly looking for). They are practically new, in my exact size, and I got them for a song. They are quite substantial and I expect they will outlive me. So my quest for cavalry twills is over. Now it is on to corduroys....

I had a pair of grey LLBs, the "Town & Field" model I think, that inexplicably shrank in the closet. Great warm, tough trousers, but Bean doesn't ship with ANY extra material to let out.

I, too, got a Joseph Turner catalog, and am going to try a pair of the twills, and maybe some moleskins.

There are several recommendations here for cavalry twill trousers from Peter Christian. But I came across these fromJoseph Turner that have some different features, most notably they lack the Daks style waistband:

Does anyone have any experience with these?
Yes, have Peter Christian, Turners, not much difference, in my opinion Brooks are better and Cordings to me, the best albeit far more expensive. Others might differ.

I would like to try the Cordings, but the shipping cost is prohibitive for one pair of trousers.
Agree, I bite my tongue every time I make a purchase, but there are times when quality has it's price. Spread over several pieces, not so bad. I do wish though that they would consider lowering their shipping cost , more in line with others charge from the U.K. But I do understand your concern.
