    That's the one thing that puts me off on a lot of FWs trousers, a lot of them just have too much going on.
    Here are the ones in question.

    LSM can get a bit busy with the pockets but this particular iteration has plain fabric (i.e. no patterns, or at least obvious ones), so the pockets will blend a bit better. On the wabash LSM, the wabash fabric on the side pocket on the right is sewn horizontally rather than vertically, as are the pockets!

    I am not sure how easy it is to find them but I know FW has done plainer looking trousers in the past.

    General consensus on the Longshoreman trousers?
    Found a pair from 2017 I’m interested in, navy duck canvas. 
    Only photos I found on here were from @JDelage with his denim version. 
    I’m sure you have a pair tucked away somewhere @Duke Mantee?

    I have a pair of the classic wabash twill (correct me if I am using the wrong terminology here). I absolutely love it. It's a bit loud because of the wabash stripes, but the fit is flattering. Pretty straight like the Duke said, but enough room for me to work in or even do some climbing in. I prefer the fit of the Longshoreman over the Trackwalker Overalls that I also have.

    I’m 27JP in the Coupen, 9 in Whites and 9.5 in John Lofgren - the Coupen is the same length but a little narrower

    @cungster I'm a 10 in Lofgrens and I'd say 10 is the best size on the Coupen last. I can also do a 9,5 which is good lengthwise but a little slim. Rule of thumb is go for your UK size but in US if that makes sense. Eastwest carry the Coupens and have very extensive size comparison. Also, if you're buying from there Janie is extremely helpful and generally just a nice guy. 

    Also, I'm think I'm a 10,5-11 in Red Wing (US) if I remember correctly.

    Thanks a lot folks. That is to say, if I am US7 on White's, I am likely to be 25 on Coupen, based on these numbers.

    They are size 36, pretty much my standard pants size for most brands. The inseam is a little short but perfect for me. There is a size chart and some detailed pictures for them HERE

    This pair is a relatively heavyweight moleskin with a herringbone pattern printed on but there are two other color options this season in a different fabric. Really cool pair of pants IMO, as soon as I tried them on I knew I had to get them. 

    I have always wanted to get a pair but it always seems like they have strangely low rise for FW. I love the printed moleskin but it probaly will be too warm for where I live. I really dig the buttoned hem, always thought that the details were so cool.

    How do you size for the Aviators and how thick are the materials? I hope you don’t mind me asking.
