From the many examples I have seen, DeBoise is clearly one of the best tailors in the world. Seeing his perfectly-fitted one-piece back really did it for me. Someone really needs to come up with a list of questions and topics and hold a long interview.
Would this also make the thigh width narrower? How about the seat? How would the rest of the trousers be affected?

Avoid stripes for weddings, stripes are for the office. A solid grey in a herringbone weave has more interest than a plain weave and gives the appearance of subtle stripes. It's a classic for formal wear.
