No. Textured black trousers do not exist, never have existed, and will never exist.

EG is one of those things I've admired from afar thus far...tried a couple of the workshirts last fw and just ended up looking like the fanciest hobo on the block.
anti-fit isn't for everyone, but I think anti-fit coupled with wide shoulders = hobo-fit
against my better judgement, have my eye on the shoulder cape, and a couple of other jackets this season though
Try a bedford or Baker jacket. They are the gateway drugs - sorta like the Stark cardigan is for S.N.S. Herning - easy to wear, look good on most people, look good over most casual stuff, and really good examples of good dressed up dress down.post #84333 of 1090549/23/13 at 7:56pmpost #84334 of 1090549/23/13 at 7:57pmTrying to pack only a carry-on for a 4.5 day trip to NYC that involves 1) a wedding and 2) a restaurant with a dress code is not conducive to nice fits. Also, being busy the whole day leading up to said dinner reservation makes life planning more complicated as I won't be able to head back and change beforehand.
Textured black trousers: Dries, Zam, Lanvin, tons of SZ type brandspost #84335 of 1090549/23/13 at 8:00pmQuote:
You're not really going to have any luck e-shopping, it's really hard to capture texture on black and most shops don't take the time. Look at Dries, Ann, and Margiela for normal cut trousers, and most of the SZ brands for weird J-shape, raw-edge, etc. If you're going for the former you'll probably have to just order a bunch and see what they look like IRL.
Edit: actually dries doesn't do a ton in black. KVA as well thoughpost #84336 of 1090549/23/13 at 8:36pmQuote:
I think you should reconsider. Having no luck with web stores ("They *are* sold online, they are *not* sold online! She's my sister -- slap! -- daughter -- slap! -- She's my sister and my daughter!") I've had a WTB ad up for a couple months, and have received numerous emails from people who know how to measure; almost all of the Mediums, as well as some of the Smalls, and even even a smattering of Larges, would be a perfect fit for you, at least in the chest. Most weren't shorter than 28-29 inches, either, so I don't think you'd look like you robbed a dollhouse, if that's your worry.
IMO, their more breezy stuff, gusting with volume, is also cut for someone taller, and I have a few pics of me looking like The Human Square! to pan that out.
Do it, Bam. Do it.post #84337 of 1090549/23/13 at 8:53pmpost #84338 of 1090549/23/13 at 9:05pmQuote:
I foresee one of these in the future.
Bam! I've seen some of the jackets look good on taller, skinny dudes...pants less so. And the shirts I tried were a disaster.post #84339 of 1090549/23/13 at 9:45pmQuote:
Luckily, I am a short, not-so-weedy dude. Given that most other things in the fashion universe are made for tall, thin people, it's only fair that we get nice things occasionally...

Millennial Males Are Brand Conscious Yet Rebel Against Mass Culture
Survey from Complex Media Details Rise of 'Bespoke Male'Quote:http://adage.com/article/special-report-advertising-week-2013/millennial-males-brand-conscious/244308/"...Defined as 18- to 34-years-old, this group grew up in the digital age and is markedly different than older males. A new study from Complex Media dives into these differences and will be presented during a panel, "The Rise of the 'Bespoke Male,'" at Advertising Week on Monday in New York.
"Our survey contradicts many assumptions about millennial males," said Rich Antoniello, CEO of Complex Media. "They aren't disinterested but rather quite interested in what they choose to care about. There's a big difference. millennial males are rebelling against the mass culture they grew up in to create their own identities, and they're highly skilled at using new media to seek out what's important to them. These young men, who we're calling 'bespoke' males, not only like to be first to discover new things, they're eager to spread the word and influence the conversation."
This group is concerned with having a unique style, with most believing style helps them to make a good impression. Eighty-one percent say they are willing to pay more for quality, and two out of three respondents believe mass media kills cool trends. One in three say they are "sneaker obsessed." And nearly 80% said American brands are cool again."
Not sure I'd say this "contradicts many assumptions about millennial males." Can't really figure out which assumptions he means. Would love to know if they asked that 81% who'll pay more for "quality" what they think "quality" means. It is also a study by Complex about Complex's core demographic that reinforces what Complex already thinks, so keep that in mind.post #84342 of 1090549/24/13 at 8:42ampost #84343 of 1090549/24/13 at 8:51amthe best thing about these reports is the impotent rage they inspire in the people they're not really aimed at in the first place.
it's like an emotional tax on caring too much about things that don't really concern you.post #84344 of 1090549/24/13 at 8:54amQuote:Originally Posted by pickpackpockpuck

The conclusions sound pretty accurate to me, though I don't know why they needed a study to figure this stuff out. In this context, the actual definition of "quality" is not important. It's the concept of "quality" being important, that is important. Essentially, the Millenials are just more evolved consumers. Congratulations, dudes.
