The man just loves his pants. Carlos is very tall and slender, so he needs his trousers custom made. He is lucky to have me! ;-)
These are another rendition of the pattern I made three years ago. He wears them a lot, every day at his job as a postman, so they last a couple of winters. Therefore, I have to make at least a pair every year. This year I decided to make two at the same time.
Good corduroy is not easy to find. It is a pitty, but I cannot find any good quality corduroy here in Catalonia, so I have to buy it abroad. The darker brown is from Lisboa, not very good quality; they won't last much, I am afraid. The lighter ones, I found it as a remnant in Barcelona last year. That seems better. I think I am developing an ability to judge good corduroy, but of course that is useless if I have to buy it online. Sigh!
