Madison Fit Pleat-Front Classic Gabardine Trousers
These are not your traditional BB style pants I have worn the last 20 years. Very low cut/rise. Very European in fit.
BB has come up with so many names you can no long buy pants on-line and have confidence what you bought will fit.! They should go with two names "traditional fit" and "european fit".

The Cut Has Changed
I really loved these trousers and had 6 or 7 pair over the years, but the cut has been changed. Where they previously were a normal rise, the rise, which is the measurement from the crotch to the waistband is decidedly short. I will be returning the ones I ordered.

Wildly Varying Fits for Different Colors
The fits vary so wildly depending on which color you get that seem like they don't even come from the same manufacturer. The black pants are by far the roomiest, followed by the charcoal. Any other colors are very restrictive in the rise and almost seem like they must have mistakenly put a Fitzgerald fit in the Madison pile. I went to several different stores hoping to find a grey or navy pai that fit like the black or charcoal - no luck. I don't know whether they make each color at different factories, which lead to different standards, or what, but they need to fix this immediately.

The cut and fit has NOT changed. Impossible to wear with the tight crotch. What happened here? These slacks have great fabric in both feel and appearance . Had to return both pair I ordered online.
