On the subject of prison stripe(?) trousers, Bob Dong makes some heavyweight (16oz) cotton canvas ones I've been eyeing recently (but probably won't ever buy)! Think it's a 33L...

I was considering these for a very short while a long time ago but then decided as fun as they look, it's so terribly off as a fashion idea.

But they're really cool, no doubt there.

The leather ones barely even resemble these prison pants.

Quite fancied these myself, though while Bob Dong seem to top out there jackets about a size below what I'd need, it's even worse with the trousers. There's a possibility I will get down to a 38waist again, but it won't be any time soon, and I can't honestly say I'd risk buying a pair of trousers by mail knowing that I was their worst case scenario,. size-wise. Pity, but if brands like Bronson and Bob Dong are going to crack the Western market, I think they're limiting themselves if they don't grade up into bigger sizes. UNless of course they're taking the A&F approach..... "We don't want you in our stuff, fat boy!"

Funnily enough I can’t buy Bronson because their smallest sizes are still too big for my (Asian) frame. Had assumed they were aiming West but apparently it’s just a weirdly small window of sizes they cater to. Odd!

I wonder if they find those are just the most common sizes they sell, being a relatively new brand? I have seen their jacket range start to rise, so hopefully they'll do more in the way of trouser sizes eventually. They seem mostly to be between 32ish and 38 that I've seen. Of course, that's similar to the Japanese brands; I don't think I've even seen some Buzz trews over a 34" waist that I'll never be again!

@red devil Did you get a jacket from them while there?

Just went to their website and found this:
Sizing looks good, price is comparable, and waxed nubuck, interesting choice, for waterproofing perhaps. Love that lapel and fur lined pockets.

Not yet, I habe the IH black ezo deerskin shirt that is made by them, but that's it for now. I was interested in getting their deer sports jacket.
