I can tell you that "opulence" was heavily featured in last night's show at the Met Museum, as the first gallery was devoted to jewels - including some quite large diamonds (Golconda, the world's major source of diamonds until the 19th century, was one of the Deccani sultanates). The locals must have picked up on this - the members' preview was quite well-attended - both the galleries and the Petrie Court (where refreshments were served) were full to overflowing.Alas, back...

As it was, I was the sole idiot, other than the lecturer and his boss who attended said matinee. ...
I believe that the question is more a resolution of the horizontal crease in the middle of the cuff - obviously, you had the trousers shortened or lengthened at some point. I am sure that a good pressing will take that out (I've had the same thing occur to me - unhappily, with no-iron chinos, and the crease in the middle of the cuff is not disappearing ).
