Taylor Single-Pleat Trouser Navy Military Twill


Never has a trouser fit so perfectly. Higher-waisted than the Walt but half an inch shorter than the Gable, the Taylor is the compulsively wearable high-rise trouser our customers have been demanding. The everyday perfection of the Taylor comes comes alive in the subtle addition of belt loops, such that you can ground your new trousers with a tried-and-true belt. We arrived at this fit-for-all-season by marrying the classic comfort of a slim single-pleat with an elegantly narrow leg opening, so that the Taylor perfectly drapes the contours of a man's lower half. For the bold, we recommend giving the Taylor's suspender buttons a try.

This navy cotton twill will go where other cottons fear to tread, perfectly locking down the formal end of casual. An open grey sport jacket will top it off with aplomb, while white trainers will bring out its 

The overall fit is slim with a strong taper after the knee. The high front rise rests comfortably at your waist. The front reverse pleats are stitched down at the top, balancing elegance and comfort without the bulk of traditional pleats. The rear besom pockets are closed with buttons & loops. Brace buttons sit inside the waistband if you'd like to use suspenders. 

Epaulet trousers are a true labor of love. As with every item in our in-house collection, they have excellent materials, meticulous craftsmanship, fair pricing, and a well-executed fit. Each pair is hand-assembled with old school construction at a venerable trouser house in New York City. We're confident that these will be some of the best trousers you will ever own. 

Fitting the Taylor Trouser

Chances are that you've never worn anything quite like the Taylor. We have two crucial recommendations. First: order your typical Epaulet waist size. The Taylor should work for Walt, Rudy, Driggs, and Rivet Chino owners. It accommodates a wide range of physiques and it's a very comfortable design.

Second: be prepared to have the waist tailored. A high-rise design has a built-in taper from hips to waist and the top hits right at your stomach. It should work off-the-rack for many of our customers, but it's very possible that you'll want or need more room at the top waistband. We've built nearly three full inches of extra cloth into the rear seam to allow for this. It's very easy to alter the waist and seat, and doing so will result in a truly custom fit. Trouser shapes like this are typically offered only as made-to-measure, so please expect that you may need to tweak the shape to make it work perfectly for you.  


All measurements are shown in inches. Waist is measured with the waistband laid flat and doubled. Hips is measured at the hip line (which is roughly equivalent to the waist line of our other trousers). Thigh is measured from the lowest point of the crotch (laid flat) straight across the thigh. Leg opening is the width of the bottom hem. Rise is measured from the lowest point of the crotch (laid flat) to the top of the waistband.
