Super 130s Tasmanian Gabardine Wool Trouser in Navy (Hampton Plain Front) by Berle
When looking your best is an obsession, you can’t settle for trousers that come up a bit short of that standard. The Berle name has been built on creating high-end trousers from some of the finest materials, and that reputation is in good standing here. Their Super 130’s Tasmanian collection is a line of 100% wool gabardine trousers that are sure to impress even those with the highest of standards.
Pants alone aren’t going to make your ensemble stand out from the crowd, but they are a great place to start. Whether you are going for a completely professional look, or something a bit more casual, Berle Super 130’s can help to make your outfit stand out. Of course, it makes sense to keep several different colors on hand, and perhaps even a couple of different styles.
Regular Rise: Regular rise is the most common rise and will usually fit average size men. If you are used to buying your pants and trousers off the rack, and they fit well, Berle recommends their regular rise.

After immigrating to the United States from Poland in the early 1900s, brothers Philip and Hyman Berlinsky opened New York Tailors, a men's clothing store, on King Street in historic Charleston, S.C. Philip, who was considered a master of his trade and who could work miracles with a needle and thread, often custom-made pants upon request from his customers. After World War II ended in 1946, the brothers decided to open their own trouser manufacturing company. They named the company Berle Manufacturing, which they considered to be an appropriate abbreviation of Berlinsky.
Eventually, the brothers decided to separate the retailing and the manufacturing sides of the business and split them amongst the family. Hyman and his family took over New York Tailors, while Philip and his four sons, Maurice, Herbert, Danny and Norman went with Berle.
A discovery by Philip's son, Herbert, put the company in league with major trouser manufacturers. While on a trip to Florence, S.C., Herbert heard about a new model of trousers that all the young boys were requesting. It was called an “up flaps model,” instead of the traditional “down flaps” model. He had a tailor there make him a pair and brought them back to Charleston where they took off and became one of the hottest models sold in the Southeast for the next 10 years.Today, the company is run by the 4th generation of family who possess an in depth knowledge of the fashion retail industry. The commitment to deliver fashionable, comfortable and quality apparel is still as strong today as it was when the company was founded.
