Jeans and denim are not to my taste, each totheir own, but I am rather drawn to a pair of pin-stripe jeans. They are most unusual, I can't see them appealing to most lovers of jeans, but I rather like them.

I'm not sure I agree. It's true that these likely don't appeal to the majority of jeans-wearers (which is the majority of the western public), but among enthusiasts, wabash stripe denim is a staple of the best repro brands, like RRL or Burgus Plus (Hinoya) or Sugar Cane.

The Burgus Plus pair seems to be just what you're looking for.

Pike Brothers and Left Field would have some nice pants for you if you like this style. I think it looks great on the right person.

Thank you both for your endorsement, you have both given me food for thought.

Yeah, these look great, really robust working-trousers. I like that the cut is a more traditional trouser rather than the five-pocket jean cut. I'm working on shifting a few stone over the next few months (the diet is hell, but I've lost half a stone since New Year, so it's going to be worth it: nothing else I've ever tried has been this effective, which makes it vastly easier to stick to), at the end of which I plan to revamp my wardrobe back into the sort of thing I really want to wear but haven't often been able to justify or find at my current size. I've got a few nice suits to slim into for a start. At that point, I'll be looking into adding some nice, new stuff like this.

They're lovely! I'm not sure I have what it takes to pull off a pair of pinstripe or wabash jeans.

However, my preferred fit on jeans is like this. Go wide or go home. Skinny or slim fits, especially in denim, I just can't abide personally. Currently wearing my way through a pair of At Last & co lot 203's, very wide, huge space in the top block. Grand job.

In my salad days, I was a big one for the punk rock drainpipe, Joey Ramone stylee. There's a certain irony that those were incredibly difficult to find at the time, whereas after I got older and opted for a wider leg, skinny jeans made a huge comeback and it's now almost impossible to find a mainstream pair wide enough for my tastes, let alone with a waistband that actually hits the natural waist!

Just received a pair of Dickies Heritage 14oz denim trousers. They aren't as loose as the Original 874s, but they ain’t bad

Not super-heavy, but higher rise
I think I am about to try one of these for myself. I somewhat got annoyed by low to mid rise pants recently... I have some OG 507s with a very high rise (above belly line when pulled up) and I can move and bend and sit really comfortably with my belly part encased this way. The Pike Brothers are not high enough for this. Even their take on the OG 107s is way too low or too modern cut in my opinion. I am an ageing man-o-war now...

I have a few pairs of older military trousers (1945/ 1976) and I love the cut! I dislike the “modern” takes on the style which are tighter fitting. I am looking at a pair of Non-Stock on ebay, and I think the dimensions might be good. They also make the Type 1 trouser cut as shorts that might be nice for Summer.

I also had my eye on the NON STOCK OG-107s. Unfortunately their biggest size is 36 inch waist which is only good looking worn by someone who has a waist of 34 inch and is able to use the side adjusters. I am currently at 96 cm around my waist (roughly 38 inch) and I don't consider myself chubby.
Trousers are my achilles' heel.
