To Endeavour above or other SFers who have a Barba, could you post any pics of them while being worn (preferably with tie)? Thanks!

I love the standard SF trousers with a 7.5" hem, no break and 2" cuffs, and I believe they suit my skinny frame pretty well, however I despise the jean rise that tends to go with them. My first suit for a summer internship from my pre-SF days was a potato sack Joseph Abboud from Syms that fits and looks horrible (pretty standard for DC), with the sole exception of the trouser rise that sits perfectly at my natural waist, like o/o's pics above. Although I don't have any...

I cannot make it this friday but would certainly be interested in future meet-ups
