Maybe it's that the creases just relax out from lack of wear etc.? That said, tho, even my fairly new Levis soft/rigid 511s, which I know...
At the moment, I'm doing a vintage cranberry-red RL Polo chino windbreaker over a peach Hanes tee, untucked, and dark 511s with a plain dark leather belt. Blue socks, no shoes.
