As you say, some adaptation will be required for getting the tailoring precise for the male form, but should make for a good "kicking off point". I think the basic size of 14 is a good starting point -- much better than the modern size 6 (which I think is the basic size today).
of dress slacks that I purchased at a 75% off discount store.
The price tag is still on the slacks.
Sorry the pic's didn't turn out the best, but it is my first time taking
pics in a mirror. You can't really see the detail of the fly and button
/hidden clasp of the waist. Still, it feels good to be able to fit into a
size 44 waist again This was a learning experience as I started to modify the slacks.
I already know what I would do differently on the next project.
Original price, w/tax, $6.50 then add about 1.00 for thread and
6 hours of fussin' and fumin'

I did this with a pair of hiking shorts, several years ago. I'm not sure I have them anymore.
