It seems like there isn't clear direction on whether or not the Madison fit slacks have returned to the "old" i.e. roomier cut. Can someone from BB please confirm? Given the majority of negative reviews on the "new" cut, when can we expect a return of the previous cut that most everyone seems to want?
In Feb-2013, I ordered a pair of Madison pants, in size 42 waist with an unfinished inseam.
The pants I ordered fit me fine in the waist; but they were too short in the rise, much too small in the seat area, and because the factory did not leave any extra fabric in those areas, they could not be let out.
In the past (for example, just 5 years ago), every pair of Brooks Brothers pants that I tried on would fit me just fine in the rise and seat areas, if they fit in the waist.
