I have an Orvis gift card and was thinking of purchasing some corduroys.

Does anyone have experience with Orvis corduroys and care to share thoughts regarding fit, fabric, and construction?

Orvis is not consistent in fit so it depends on the model. I have a couple pair of their supercord trousers (different fit even here) and they are bulletproof. One pair has the horrible leather pocket treatment but they wont wear out so I still have them.

I have no direct experience with Orvis cords, but I've pretty much given up on their pants. For me, the fit on all the Orvis khakis / chinos is baggy (I wear size 34-30). Orvis clothing in general seems to run big and roomy.

Definitely true in the general.

Agreed. Massive even.

Many pounds ago, I could wear Orvis stuff, but not any more.

I chat with the younger Orvis employees about the orvis fit being waaay to roomy for today's younger outdoor buyer, and they agree. They know that even their most trim stuff is huge. They are hoping that slow, gradual changes are being made. I don't see it.

I am wearing Orvis corduroy trousers in this picture. I also have Orvis moleskin, twill, and khaki trousers.

How Orvis trousers fit depends on how other brands fit you. I can't get my legs into Land's End tailored fit or Brooks Brothers Milano fit trousers.

(I am 5'6" and weigh 145lbs.)

I did note that the latest Orvis catalog has some new tattersall shirts offered in "trim fit." I haven't seen them yet, so I don't know if they're truly "trim," but it's a little encouraging to think they may have turned the corner from exclusively offering "biggie size."

I have several pairs of Orvis trousers, including the Supercords. It seems to me that they generally fit about like Bills M2s. Of course, I'm an old guy so I'm not looking for a real trim fit.

Orvis caters to the, er, ahem, generously-proportioned sportsman. I have an Orvis jacket made out of something like covert twill, decidedly casual but good on a fall afternoon. It's labeled a size 38. I am a 42 on a good day, and a 44 most of the time.

This is no recent trend, either. The jacket in question is 20 years old.
