    Those translations are awesome. I particularly enjoyed the ribs on both sides that were made out of rock.

    Putting the 40s on straight after the 50s does remind me how slim the 50s are in the hips compared to the 40s. So you definitely wouldn't want to have the 50s in more than an inch smaller than the 40s.

    40s in size 34:

    50s in size 33:

    Just pre-chewed? You're behind the times...

    Yeah I'm prepared to pay to save time sometimes - any time that doesn't involve either work or childcare I'd rather not be doing annoying chores. But an extra £200 not to have click through a few pages of a website is crazy. And I quite like chopping vegetables. And not having to wear clothes that require ironing is high on my list of desiderata for a job.

    Someone explain the business model to me here. Are there really that many people who are sufficiently knowledgeable to be interested in buying Warehouse and Freewheelers but not sufficiently knowledgeable to recognize the massive mark-ups?

    50s are out for repair right now but I'll do it when I get them back this week.

    I think 33. The 50s are wider in the leg all the way down than the 40s so for a similar leg you'd probably have to go down to 32, but that would likely be pushing it in the waist. I have 40s in 34 and 50s in 33 and both fit fine. These days I could probably go down an inch in both but I wouldn't do more than 1" difference between them.

    I had the same experience as Unders - sized up one but then the stretch was massive. I still really like them but they only fit properly straight after a wash now. I think you should stick with the size you have.

    Lovely composition.

    I'd say they're pretty true to size in the waist. I'm not sure how the two measurements differ exactly but the "around" measurement for the 50s on the website says 91cm (=35.8").

    And the style of wear shown on the right is the more authentic.

    I've still so much of Europe to explore, but here are some of my favourites. In general I think trains are a great way to travel in Europe. In the UK (where I'm from) I love the Lake District and the Scottish Highlands. The west coast of Scotland is amazing. Hire a car in Glasgow and take the A82 to Fort William and then the A830 to Mallaig. Endless great hiking options if that appeals to you but the drive alone is worth the trip. Further north the Scandinavian Arctic is beautiful if you like walking. Some lesser-known but lovely cities: Plovdiv in Bulgaria, Split in Croatia, Krakow in Poland. If you like beaches but want somewhere a bit less obvious, I recommend the islands off the Dalmatian coast of Croatia. Bernina Express through the Alps. (It was pissing with rain when my wife and I took this unfortunately, but it's a fabulous journey.) All the obvious destinations in Italy are worth seeing even they are obvious, but Sicily is a less heralded option. Taormina, Siracusa and Catania all worth a visit (and the western part as well I'm sure, but I haven't seen it).

    That's the best one I've read on here for a long time.
