Slim Pleated Pants? - Page 2

from Paris with a somewhat fuller leg, but double-pleated and low rise. These from
Arthur et Fox which has received excellent reviews in this forum. Finally,
a pair of flannels from the now-defunct San Francisco branch of Swaine Adney,
also short rise and double pleated and quite slim

I omitted two pairs, one dress, one linen-like casual slacks,
made bespoke for me in San Francisco by Heinz, a now-retired
tailor who was upstairs on Third and Market.

A single pleat could work, but only a single pleat.

If you buy the correct size trousers the pleats do not pull open. The fact that flat fronts allow one to squeeze more of his fat ass into them before they exhibit signs of ill fit does not mean you are buying the right size.

Bumping this old thread as I am interested in finding some slim fit  RTW pleated pants. 

I've seen many examples lately, all bespoke.
