Flying Fishbone Double-Pleat Classic Fit Pants
Took a chance and ordered without seeing the pants first--a great choice!
In the past few years I have had a terrible time buying clothes because so many items are now made in "vanity sizes", or other odd measuring systems that require one to try on many different sizes in order to find a proper fit.
I had hoped to stop by a T.B. storefront on an upcoming trip to try out some of these pants, but my plans changed and I would not have a chance to do that. Instead, I took a gamble and ordered a pair online without trying a any on, or without even seeing a pair in person.
However, before doing that I contacted customer service for some assistance in selecting the proper size. I am tall, my actual waist measurement is 39", and I have always worn a 32" inseam. Since I have pants from other well-known manufacturers that fit with labeled sizes that are wildly different from those measurements, and since some other reviews have mentioned that some shrinkage will occur initially, I had no clue which of the many available sizes to choose. I explained all of this to the agent, and we eventually decided that 36/34 would be the best choice.
The black pair I ordered arrived today. Just out of the package the waist fit was practically perfect, and the length was a little long, as expected. I washed them right away, according to the guidelines. After that, there seemed to be only minimal shrinkage in the waist, so that was still good. The length did lessen somewhat, but maybe not a full 2 inches. So, I could have them taken up just a little, or leave them as they are, it could go either way. I will probably leave them alone. So the help I received was spot on. Thanks.
Apart from all that, I really love the fabric, the pants are wonderfully comfortable, and they look great.
Finally, I would like to compliment T.B. on the nice paper bag they shipped the pants in, thereby keeping another pointless piece of plastic out of a landfill.

Excellent fit. Very good tailoring
These pants are well tailored with an excellent fit. The pants do wrinkle quite easily. After two wearings, they need to go to the cleaners.

My husband loves Tommy jeans and wears 35x30's which are hard to find. He needed new khakis and these were perfect! Ordered for his birthday and he loved them - ordering more!

We first tried the flat front Wishbone pant which were a bit tight in the seat/thigh. This pleated style made ALL the difference. These pants are now my husband's favorite! Great for travel as they can be dressy or casual. The pleats make the fit so comfortable especially on long flights.
